Available as Add-on for ARCHLine.XP LT and ARCHLine.XP Professional version, the MEP Module tools make it easy for engineers to model and visualize mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems in 3D, along with the architectural model.
Import your MEP parts, fixtures and fittings in IFC format, connect your elements using ducts, pipes, etc. Have full control over when and how to represent your MEP elements in order to have clean and professional layouts.
Integrated system calculations - The integrated system calculation allow designers to perform calculations throughout the design process in order to visualize planned system performance and to compare design alternatives if necessary. System calculation executes automatic sizing, and verification of compliance with design requirements.
View Templates - View Templates help to increase accuracy and reliability of MEP design in BIM model. Enables to alter the appearance of the 3D views between architecture and MEP disciplines.
MEP only view displays the MEP elements only.
MEP primary view shows the building in the background and MEP elements clearly in the foreground.
Architecture primary view is exactly the opposite.
Architecture only view shows the building only.
Quantity take-off - Material lists are available of all the fittings and MEP objects in the project with selected properties.
Schematic design phase - In this phase, the designer can place the main units and terminals according to the building requirements. Piping strategy might be coordinated manually on 2D floor plan or automated routing with sizing estimates.
Detailed design phase - The detailed design phase is where MEP system calculation is the core activity. It performs sizing and balancing for all MEP components. Designers can also switch to manufacturers products, meaning they can create the design with real products.
