Fabrication ESTmep 2021 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.
Detailing software for MEP contractors
Create fabrication-ready models of piping, plumbing, or ductwork systems in AutoCAD using CADmep. Your content libraries used in CADmep, ESTmep, and CAMduct may also be used in Revit to support a multi-discipline workflow. Available stand-alone or in the Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection.
Software Features Improvements
Multipoint routing for fabrication - Generate fabrication networks using multipoint routing for fitting and group settings.
Sloped piping for fabrication - Create detailed sloped pipes with part-by-part modeling and slope controls.
New patterns for filter plenum boxes - CID 1206 and CID 1207 support the various types of filter plenum boxes.
Support for PDF underlays - Accurately input the scale ratio and match duplicate graphics with improved scaling for PDF underlays.
Fabrication hangers - Drive pattern geometry with fabrication hangers.
Vertical design line annotation - Vertical annotation for vertical lines enables easier validation of flow rate and velocity on riser sections.
Part user defined field - Create a custom string of text through the API with a new print object.
Improved API and add-in functionality - The API now allows read and write access to the ancillary data for third-party tools.
Detail in Building Information Modeling (BIM)
Shared content libraries and databases - Use your Fabrication database from CADmep/CAMduct/ESTmep within Revit building design software to produce detailed models.
Design to fabrication - Convert your model with Revit LOD 300 design elements to a detailed model with LOD 400 MEP fabrication parts.
Fabrication part placement - Select a service, group, and the parts to place in the model with the parts palette.
Enhanced editing capabilities - Use routing exclusions and improved split controls, and resize connected elements to develop your model in less time.
Improved hangers - Hangers autosize to the hosted element and automatically attach to structural components, simplifying coordination.
Revit to estimation/fabrication - Use the Revit fabrication detail model to drive estimation and fabrication downstream for better coordination and collaboration.
Collaboration and coordination - Share models within Revit for multiuser collaboration.
Estimate in Fabrication ESTmep
Shared content libraries and databases - Use your Fabrication database from CADmep/CAMduct/ESTmep to produce detailed models for estimation.
Generate bids from Revit - Import models for cost estimation.
Accelerate underlay trace - Create more competitive bids with design line.
Adjustable cost estimates - Manipulate databases for quick cost iterations.
Value engineering option tools - Show clients multiple service pricing options.
Color-coded cost tool - Visualize job cost and cost analysis by color.
