Everyone who sets up a pipe system in Revit knows the story. Define the pipe segments, load the pipe fittings, and set them in the routing preferences.

I first came across Geberit pipes when consulting with an MEP consultancy. One of the operators alerted me to the excellent BIM content they provide. I had a look at their content this week and I am very impressed.

They have sample files showing some of the different pipe connections that are possible for a variety of pipe systems they provide. Download them here:

There is even a great add-in of Revit! I love it.

Download and assign optional fittings directly from Revit, or the pipe systems, for that matter. Set the regional settings to see what is available in your country.

Double Click on the component to load it into the project. Set the routing preferences using the loaded components.

There are pipes for water supply, storm-water drainage, harsh environments, and sanitary systems. There is even a specialized silent system that takes up small volumes in skyscrapers. It provides pretty much for all one’s piping needs.

They seem to be in the process of going so far as to manufacturing plumbing fittings although not all this content is available yet. In this case, you can always use content from another manufacturer as a placeholder. You can also choose to model up a placeholder if you have the dimensions and specifications.
