BIM Farers
Automate inserting pipe penetrations in Autodesk® Revit®; complete with intelligent recognition, auto-sizing, and quick insertion of penetration elements.

General Usage Instructions

How to use:

  1. Load the included default Family for the automatic sizing feature. Otherwise, you may also use your own penetration Family. Reopen the plugin window to refresh the Family list.
  2. Select a wall/slab from the Architectural Revit link.
  3. (Optional) Wall/slab toggle:
    • Toggle the switch to select all walls with a similar wall type only in the current view.
    • Toggle the switch to select all slabs of any thickness in the current view.
    • Please note: if there are modeling errors in the linked Revit project, i.e. multiple walls in the same position, this may cause duplicates to be inserted.
  4. (Optional) Type in the range of pipe diameter, in mm, to include. The default is unlimited. You can also type in only a lower limit or an upper limit.
  5. Select the penetration Family.
  6. (Optional) Set the required pipe clearance to create an oversized peno.
  7. Click the 'Insert Penos' button.
  8. (Optional) Click the generated hyperlinks in the Report window to zoom in on each detected pipe penetration.
