Direction Arrows on Duct and Pipe Connectors

I want it to show which direction the air is travelling when shown in a plan view. You should be able to nest a generic annotation family into the diffuser family.

I'd try adding it to the view in the family where you want to see it Floor plan or RCP. Originally Posted by jmk. Nesting is when you load a generic annotation into another family.

Open the generic annotation, select the button to load the family as if you were going to load it into your project and choose your diffuser family.

You can then place the arrow where you want it. If you want parameters from the arrow family to be in the diffuser family for example, if you want the arrow length to change depending on the size of the diffuser you can link the parameter in the generic annotation family to one in the diffuser family by selecting the little grey button that will appear next to the parameter.

The flow arrows are nested annotation families and will decrease and increase with scale of drawing. Unless I'm misunderstanding you. I am using the round neck 24X24 supply diffusers hosted If i use the "hosted" diffusers, i cannot turn on or off the flow arrows 4 of them This definetely will not fly well when printing documents for our project Originally Posted by jgoerling.

I can get the sub-category to work for the linework in the arrow, however it doesnt work for the filled region so you would need to drop the region and use multiple lines, attached is an example, to turn off the arrows look for the sub-cat "Stupid Arrows" within Detail Items.

Last edited by drewj; at PM. Reason: wub-category sounds good, but I think I spelled it wrong. I have spent hours trying to find this info and now I feel I have tried hard enough and will ask one of you fella's to waste a bit of your time helping me. All I want is to add the airflow arrows to all the diffusers I made. The preloaded 24 x 24 hosted diffuser has a check box in the instance properties allowing me pick different arrows for each diffuser. I want this exact setup in the EH price diffusers I downloaded.

Thanks in advance. Open both air terminal families, copy to clipboard the flow arrow annotations from the family that has them and paste them into the new family. The visibility parameters should copy in with the flow arrow annotations and all that you'll need to do is place the arrows where you want them.

A better idea would be to learn how to edit and use visibility parameters in families because it's pretty useful and not that dificult. Originally Posted by DaveDH. Last edited by JColombe; at PM.

What you have to do is this. Edit Air Terminal Family. Edit Air Terminal Arrow This is an annotation symbol. Keep in mind you can't control filled regions and lines with one VG parameter. Just delete the filled region. Load into Air Terminal family. Load Air terminal into project.

You can now control the visibility of the flow arrows in VG. We just deleted the annotation symbol and used filled regions groups for flow patterns. Thanks Jrobker - that sounds like it will do what I want. If you want to have individual control this way, you will have to create 4 separate Annotative categories and families that correspond to each other. Originally Posted by Jrobker.

I am working on another building that has large amounts of groups from the Architect and that has no bearing on my computers performance. Whatsoever, Period. Lets not blame the fact that perhaps it's the program itself. Good luck getting any sufficient work completed in 8 hours in that model. I doubt your Group theory has any merit, unless thats all your using.

Hell, I add 1 floor of duct and it drastically slows my machine down. Should we disable that too? Please show us the way Revit Sensei. Last edited by Jrobker; at PM. Attached Images luke-carradine-kung-fu. How large are you revit files? I would try using worksets first a different workset per floor and when you open the file only "specify" the worksets you plan on using. We did this on a k sq ft airport expansion.

Often times I hear that firms do not have the time to adequately perform high end visualization. Sometimes the excuses are different, Revit takes too long to render, we don't have enough detailed equipment, our staff isn't trained to perform this task or our client just isn't asking for it.

So what can we do as architects and engineers to improve the efficiency of creating visual acuity from our data models to aid in the development of future projects? We are happy he is voulunteering his time to help us keep this a great community for everyone.

There is currently no way to accomplish this in Revit MEP.

Is this something that you typically show on construction documents or is it used only "internally"? Hey Larry, All what we do over here is we modified a pipe tag and created one tag called flow arrow right and also one called flow arrow left. Its a work around but it works. Drop me an e-mail if you need a little more help. This is a basic item for construction documents, why on earth wouldn't flow arrows be automatically placed?

I agree It makes following piping and ductwork ALOT easier We've got a simple symbol that you can align and lock to the pipe so that it moves with it. Rotate any direction you need - no problem.

Installing flow arrows. Previous page Next page. All rights reserved. It is possible to add the flow arrows for the air devices or to an empty place.

To Add Direction Arrow Components to Label Styles

MagiCAD automatically recognises the system type of the air device and it can take the correct arrow. Start the flow arrow installation from the Annotation panel by selecting the Flow Arrow button.

Extra options can be selected from the pop-up menu right-click. Connect an arrow to an air device or place the arrow in an empty place. Select the number of the arrows. Circle arrow. Show the rotation of the air flow for the swirl diffusers. Rotate the flow arrows to the desired direction. Quick rotate. Rotates arrows 45 degrees clockwise. Define the options for the flow arrows. Flow arrow options. Select Options from the pop-up menu.

The Arrow Options dialog opens. Each system type has its own arrow options. Select the one you want to edit. Choose the length for the arrow. If the Short and Long options are not suitable, you can specify the length in the User Defined field. Choose the head type for the arrow and the figure for the arrow. You can see the preview according to your selections. Installing the flow arrow. Once the settings are defined you can install the arrow.

Install the arrow by clicking the air device or put it in an empty place.You export a SavedModel in your trainer. A model is an organizational tool that you can use however it makes sense for your situation. It is common, especially after you have a version in production, to keep the inputs and outputs the same between model versions. This enables you to switch versions without needing to change other application structure you may have built around your model. It also makes it easy to test new versions with existing data.

If you request predictions specifying just a model name, Cloud ML Engine uses the default version for that model. Note that the only time the service automatically sets the default version is when you create the very first one. You can manually make any subsequent version the default by calling projects. This enables you to, for example, use a stable default version to serve predictions in production while testing newer versions without creating a dedicated model resource for testing.

There are no rules for names beyond those technical requirements, but here are some best-practices:The Cloud ML Engine quota policy sets a limit of 100 models per project and limits the total number of versions (combined between all models) to 200. Cloud ML Engine needs some information to create your model version. You also have some options you can configure. This section describes the parameters of both types. These parameters are defined in the Version object or added for convenience in the gcloud ml-engine versions create command.

You can specify the number of training nodes to keep running for your model version. See the section on scaling for more information. If you are using the gcloud command-line tool to deploy your model, you can use a SavedModel on your local computer. The tool stages it in the Cloud Storage location you specify before deploying it to Cloud ML Engine.

You may have included TensorFlow Ops in your computation graph that were useful primarily in the context of training. Once you've trained your model, you can remove those ops from your graph before exporting your final version.

Much of the advice given in the training application development page is aimed at the prediction experience. In some cases those are changes that you make to your model when the bulk of your training is done and you're ready to start deploying versions.

You can send new data to your deployed model versions to get predictions. The following sections describe important prediction considerations. Cloud ML Engine provides two ways to get predictions from trained models: online prediction (sometimes called HTTP prediction), and batch prediction. In both cases, you pass input data to a cloud-hosted machine-learning model and get inferences for each data instance.

The differences are shown in the following table:The needs of your application dictate the type of prediction you should use. You should generally use online prediction when you are making requests in response to application input or in other situations where timely inference is needed.

Batch prediction is ideal for processing accumulated data when you don't need immediate results. For example a periodic job that gets predictions for all data collected since the last job. You should also inform your decision with the potential differences in prediction costs.

If you use a simple model and a small set of input instances, you'll find that there is a considerable difference between how long it takes to finish identical prediction requests using online versus batch prediction.

It might take a batch job several minutes to complete predictions that are returned almost instantly by an online request. This is a side-effect of the different infrastructure used by the two methods of prediction. Cloud ML Engine allocates and initializes resources for a batch prediction job when you send the request.
