More features

Detail in Building Information Modeling (BIM)

  • Shared content libraries and databases

    Use your Fabrication database from CADmep/CAMduct/ESTmep within Revit building design software to produce detailed models.

  • Design to fabrication

    Convert your model with Revit LOD 300 design elements to a detailed model with LOD 400 MEP fabrication parts.

  • Fabrication part placement

    Select a service, group, and the parts to place in the model with the parts palette.

  • Enhanced editing capabilities

    Use routing exclusions and improved split controls, and resize connected elements to develop your model in less time.

  • Improved hangers

    Hangers autosize to the hosted element and automatically attach to structural components, simplifying coordination.

  • Revit to estimation/fabrication

    Use the Revit fabrication detail model to drive estimation and fabrication downstream for better coordination and collaboration.

  • Collaboration and coordination

    Share models within Revit for multiuser collaboration.
