To use the Plugin or Dynamo, you will need to download all the libraries. (For correct use, you will need to have installed some of the packages found in our technical manual).

What is Dynamo Wavin for Revit?

Dynamo Wavin facilitates existing workflows and automates processes and repetitive tasks present in the design of construction projects. Dynamo is a plugin used in the BIM methodology, supported by a visual programming language open source for designers. Wavin has created several solutions to recurring problems that we may encounter on the design, optimizing times, generating improvements in coordination processes and eliminating repetitive tasks that do not generate value.

Characteristics

In addition to managing and automating BIM elements, Dynamo Wavin is also a robust geometric design tool supported by BIM libraries.

  • PIPE PASSES
  • TAGS
  • REDESIGN

On some occasions, the trace of hanging pipes intersects with architectural elements such as walls generating interference that needs to be solved, therefore, it is necessary to protect the wall cross that allows the free circulation of pipes without interfering with the architectural element. Currently, in Revit this function is performed manually from gap families, but in the case of large plumbing projects, the manual location of these passes becomes expensive, it is for this reason that the development of an algorithm that inserts passes to multiple interferences between a wall and pipes is essential. This algorithm allows you to create pipe passes directly in an architectural project linked to a plumbing model.

This algorithm allows you to create labels on pipes and pipe fittings directly in a previously selected view. It is important to keep in mind that the families of pipe tags and pipe fittings within the project of interest must be loaded beforehand.

Download the script version

Part A) Exporting Pipeline Systems to Excel This Dynamo algorithm exports the items corresponding to Wavin piping systems to an Excel sheet. And it organizes them by: System Name, Diameter and Element Identification.

Download the script version

Part B) Importing Pipeline Systems to Excel This Dynamo algorithm imports the Diameter changes made in the previous Excel sheet into Revit.

Frequently Asked Questions

Wavin’s BIM libraries are designed to work in Revit. They can be used in version 2019 onwards.

The objects are 3D visualizations of our pipes and fittings, with one element in Revit terms being called a “Revit family”. The intelligence added to the package will automatically create the correct elbows and tees and can change the direction of a bend, the eccentricity of a fixing device, etc.

This tutorial shows you step by step how to import Amanco libraries into a Revit project.

We recommend downloading our BIM Libraries Manual and then watching our video tutorials before downloading the Revit content.

A Wavin BIM Library is a digital file that contains the information needed to insert a certain product line into a BIM project when using the Revit program.

With a Wavin BIM library, you can insert a specific range of Prediales products into a BIM project.

Dynamo: Wavin’s Dynamo development contains the downloads and user manual for Wall Passes, Layout Auto Labels and Redesign scripts (Excel)

MEP Revit Plugin: You can access the installer for each version of Revit available from 2020, as well as the user manual

To download the MEP Revit Plugin you need to fill in a form with your details.

Wavin has integrated “smart support”, which helps you choose the right products to achieve a complete “as built” project as effectively and efficiently as possible.
