Design Engineering Software for Mechanical Electrical and Plumbing
CAD-MEP is a 3rd-party Autodesk® add-on software program that provides the “I” in BIM (Building Information Modeling). CAD-MEP offers intelligent 3D-Design to Mechanical (Ductwork and Piping), Electrical, and Plumbing Engineers and Design/ Build Contractors. CAD-MEP is an ARX-Programmed to utilize *.DWG Files working on AutoCAD® and AutoCAD® MEP 2007-2011 (both 32-bit and 64-bit).
Design calculations are created with simple user inputs which define a system’s criteria and specify constraints such as width, aspect ratio, Round or Rectangular shape and the power of Design-Line will do the rest. With a single line sketch, a 3D drawing is generated automatically. Compare “what if“ scenarios, like Round verses Rectangular, change static pressure, or add in-line equipment and CAD-MEP will recalculate sizes and redesign automatically.
CAD-MEP is a design tool that integrates directly with other Leading CAD design tools such as: AutoCAD MEP®, and CAD-Mech, CAD-Duct, and CAD-Elec.
EST-Mech, EST-Duct and EST-Elec modules, when purchased, estimate labor and material costs for each service directly in a CAD-MEP drawing.
CAD-MEP offers seamless integration with our CAD-Duct HVAC Detailing software, CAD-Mech Piping and Plumbing Detailing software, and CAD-Elec Electrical Tray, Component and Conduit Detailing Software, utilizing the same networkable database structure for Manufacturing, Scheduling, and Estimating.
CAD-MEP Features include:
- AutoCAD® DWG, AutoCAD® MEP DWG, IFC, IFCXML, IFCxml.zip and NavisWorks® compatible.
- Ability to Auto-size Duct / Pipe with Design-Line.
- Drawing with size based services
- Auto-Generate Duct, Pipe and Electrical Hangers.
- Collision checking as you draw.
- Quick and simple sectioning for adding detailed information in both 2-D and 3-D.
