      What is Fabrication?

       2D CAD spool sheet drawing shown in Fabrication software with a visual content library of MEP parts

      Fabrication ESTmep™, CADmep™, and CAMduct™ software provide an integrated set of tools for MEP specialty contractors to estimate, detail, and drive fabrication of mechanical building systems.

      • Use manufacturer-specific content to generate better estimates
      • Create more accurate detailed models for installation
      • Produce sheet metal for fabrication

      Create fabrication-ready models

      Close-up view of a 3D model showing mechanical piping connection points.

      Create high LOD models of piping, plumbing, or ductwork systems in AutoCAD using CADmep. Content libraries used in ESTmep, CADmep, and CAMduct can also be used in Revit to support BIM workflows. Available stand-alone or in the Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection.

      Shared data for better project outcomes

      Connect MEP workflows with shared libraries of manufacturer-specific content and project data. Break down team silos and reduce project risk by carrying data used for estimating and detailing through to CAM for manufacturing with no translation.
