Fabrication CADmep™ mechanical detailing software supports fabrication workflows for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) contractors. Extend Revit models created with ITM content to detail shop drawings and prepare systems for field installation.
Note: Fabrication CADmep 2016 requires a separate license for AutoCAD 2016 software or an AutoCAD 2016 industry-specific software product. AutoCAD 2016 is included when you purchase the MEP Fabrication Suite.
Build and edit content and services in Fabrication CADmep and use them to create fabrication-ready models inside Revit building design software.
The new Fabrication API gives read and write access to common job and job item properties.
Select from thousands of added and updated imperial and metric content items and pattern templates for Fabrication and Revit. New and legacy imperial content now includes Harrison codes and prices.
Hanger options in Fabrication CADmep now include z-clip hangers. Set independent rod lengths and add insulation shields when placing hangers in your model.
User interface enhancements allow for horizontal or vertical docking of the Fabrication CADmep folders inside AutoCAD design and documentation software.
Fabrication CADmep, Fabrication ESTmep, Fabrication CAMduct, and Revit can share the same libraries of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) content, as well as database settings and structure. Design, estimate, detail, coordinate, fabricate, and manufacture sheet metal without conversion or remodelling.
Extend the use of models created in Revit software or AutoCAD MEP software by importing them into Fabrication CADmep. Models built in Revit using your ITM content and services can be opened directly in Fabrication CADmep. Models created using Revit families or AutoCAD MEP software can be mapped to Fabrication CADmep services to help speed the creation of a constructible model.
Design line drawing technology helps users redraw a design using detailed components. Work on design intent underlays (such as DWG™, DWF, PDF, and more) to develop MEP designs into constructible models. Trace over 2D routing elements onto an underlay and create data-rich service runs that use pressure-class driven, manufacturer-specific content.
Model several parallel services at the same time to help shorten the model drawing process.
Service validation issues can lead to incorrect estimates, costing, and procurement deliverables, plus wasted costs throughout fabrication and installation. Minimize mismatched connectors, duplicate items, and clashes early in the process with tools designed to help limit additional cost and help ensure that services are accurate and ready for construction.
Create detailed spool drawings to support the prefabrication and modularization of MEP systems. Automatically add model information such as size, length, spool name, and object information to provide detailed and more accurate spool sheets for the fabrication shop.
Access, report, and export the data contained in Fabrication CADmep models.
