Gas System Design
Ideally, you already receive the architecture as a Revit model which can be used to create a MEP model when designing the building services engineering. With the help of liNear, you can use the elements from the architectural model (e.g. levels, rooms, materials) and add further information to them. Automatically create the required storeys including work levels and start designing the gas installation immediately. The liNear Parameter Manager, allowing the determination and assignment of parameters, is also included.
When specific MEP information has been added to the architectural model, the model is ready for design and analysis. With the help of liNear's extensive libraries you can comfortably select all gas consumers. Consumers are inserted into the model with just one click. A large number of useful helpers will support you during the design process phase. House service connections, gas excess flow valves, meters and numerous valves are also available.
With the pipeline corridors and pipe functions as well as the command for automatic connection, you can efficiently construct the gas pipe network. If the gas pipe network is constructed, refine your design and then have the network calculated. The functions for construction in the gas discipline are included in both Desktop Heating and Desktop Water. A void planning with powerful collaboration tools simplifies the coordination process with architects and structural engineers in both closed and open BIM projects.
In addition to different standards, alternative methods are also available for calculation. With liNear Data Coloring, the results can be checked visually. The result is a safe and standard-compliant gas pipe network. Existing systems can also be tested and analyzed by means of a theoretical functional analysis. Redimension the network on the basis of the pipe network calculation. All results can be saved directly to the components and are exported during transfer.
With the automatic labels you can write the results of your design work directly into the model - quickly and simply. You can define and reuse labels globally, per component group or for individual elements. It is also possible to add your own parameters, which can be included in the labels. All results such as the bill of quantities or the results of the gas pipe network calculation are offered in different formats. All information is saved directly in the model. The final MEP model is provided for the BIM process. The IFC format is also available as an option.
