Frequently Asked Questions

Objects are 3D visualisations of our pipes and fittings, with an element in Revit terms being called a “Revit family”.The intelligence added to the package will automatically create the right bends and Tees and can change the direction of a bend, the eccentricity of a reducer, etc.

This tutorial shows you step by step how to import Wavin content packages into a Revit project.

We recommend downloading our Training Manual, then watching our Tips & Tricks videos before downloading Revit content.

A Wavin Revit package is a digital file that contains the information needed to insert one specific Wavin product range into a BIM project when using the Revit software program.

With a Wavin Revit package, you can insert a specific Soil & Waste or Heating and Cooling product range into a BIM project such as:

  • Wavin AS
  • Soil & Waste
  • Tigris K1
  • Hep2O

Wavin is the only pipe system supplier which has built-in “intelligent assistance”. Intelligent assistance helps you to pick the right products to arrive as effectively and efficiently as possible at a full ‘as built’ design.
