Additional patterns templates are available for 2015, including round ductboard, floor drains and cleanouts, vented crossovers, and plugs.
Users can set different nesting parameters for different materials—such as insulation, ductboard, and sheet metal—to help avoid nesting the job multiple times.
For 2015, Fabrication CAMduct software supports QR barcodes to add data-rich barcodes to labels and worksheets.
Use a single command for database export and import, as well as optional insulation specifications and sections.
Choose options to easily export and import connectors, specifications, sections, pricelists, and more. One consolidated database import and export tool helps increase productivity and simplify database transfer between jobs.
A Fabrication CAMduct 2015 license includes access to CAMduct Components, Tracker, and RemoteEntry.
Three tools are included to help you streamline your workflow and boost your business practices.
All Fabrication products share libraries and databases for more seamless estimating, detailing, fabrication, and installation workflow.
Autodesk Fabrication products—Fabrication CAMduct, Fabrication ESTmep, and Fabrication CADduct software—all share the same libraries of 3D parametric duct components, as well as database settings and structure. This feature enables integrated workflow between files without conversion. Create a more productive working environment as models easily pass between all stages of a project, from MEP estimating, detailing, cost analysis, and coordination, to prefabrication, ductwork, and sheet metal manufacturing.
Access a large library of 3D parametric rectangular, round, and oval ductwork components with their associated developments.
The pattern libraries are fully parametric and include developments used in cutting metal. Component libraries are available in either metric or imperial dimensions, and they include elements such as connectors, seams, notches, and more. You can control the requirements of each manufactured component, but they are based on industry standard, pressure-class driven specifications, including DW144 and SMACNA.
An easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) supports easy job entry for both novice and experienced software users.
Advanced nesting algorithms and options help deliver better material utilization.
Fabrication CAMduct offers advanced heuristics to enable more precise nesting and better material utilization. The software automatically attempts to find the best fit for all of the items in your job and minimize material waste. You can also opt to manually position components on sheets based on your predetermined settings. Linear nesting enables a better understanding of procurement requirements by helping you accurately discern quantities for pipework, spiral ducts, electrical containments, and other ancillary items.
With post processors built in to support a variety of machine types, Fabrication CAMduct software can help you control your production line of any size.
Fabrication CAMduct includes post processes that can write NC for a variety of controller manufacturers. Send the nested files directly to machines used in the manufacture and production of ductwork and sheet metal components, including burning tables (plasma, laser, oxy-fuel), coil lines, and insulation cutters (water jet, router, tangential knife).
Estimate jobs based on a variety of project factors to better understand your bottom line.
Fabrication CAMduct enables you to cost jobs based on:
For more detailed estimating and costing you can link directly to Fabrication ESTmep through the share libraries and databases in Fabrication software.
