Detail, fabricate, and install complex buildings systems, work more effectively, and win new business.
Better building systems
Autodesk BIM software offers integrated tools to help you design, detail, estimate, fabricate, and install MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) building systems more quickly and accurately. Improve collaboration, streamline projects, and reduce risk and waste across the entire project team.
The benefits of BIM for MEP
Improve design quality
Rapidly evaluate alternatives, optimize system designs, and reduce and resolve clashes with intelligent modeling tools.
Use integrated modeling and detailing tools to produce coordinated designs faster and deliver projects more quickly.
Optimize your project workflows across teams with collaboration tools that let you create and share models and exchange project data.
Extend design to fabrication
Use manufacturer-specific content to help generate better estimates, create more accurate detailed models, and directly drive MEP fabrication.
Connect BIM and fabrication
Create model-based project estimates
Revit + Fabrication ESTmep
Export data from a detailed fabrication Revit model to Fabrication ESTmep to manage project estimates. Calculate the project costs of the Revit model and create more accurate, competitive bids.
Build and edit content and services in Fabrication CAMduct to create fabrication-ready models in Revit. Produce sheet metal components based on a Revit model and use advanced nesting to help improve efficiency.
Design firm Dekker/Perich/Sabatini uses analysis tools to show clients real-time cost benefits and design strategies that can help save money, extend building lifespan, and create healthy environments for occupants.
