MagiCAD 2022 deliveries have now started. The new version presents advanced tools and features for a new level of accuracy and intelligence in MEP design. MagiCAD 2022 supports the latest Autodesk platforms Revit 2022 and AutoCAD 2022.
MagiCAD 2022 brings extensive new functionality for MEP design in Autodesk Revit and AutoCAD environments enabling MEP designers to produce work that is highly accurate and easily adaptable for further uses.
MagiCAD 2022 for Revit helps improve design accuracy and quality with multiple new additions. A new Segment Adjustment tool provides exceptional control with precise definitions of distances and offsets when moving multiple segments. Design accuracy is also improved with the introduction of new gender types for duct fittings and generic distribution boxes for ventilation systems, while simultaneously enabling more realistic designs for installation purposes.
The new version also impacts the daily design workflows of MEP designers. Users can combine drainage products and install them as a combination, download pre-configured pipe and drainage series from the MagiCAD Cloud online service, and customise the running index logic in a model according to index area rows. MagiCAD 2022 also provides numerous enhancements to popular tools, including clash checking, provisions for builderswork openings, and connection nodes, as well as functionalities to set up and use national classification systems in projects.
MagiCAD 2022 for AutoCAD helps improve design quality and the overall design experience for each MEP discipline. A new correction factor allows for detailed adjustment of radiator power for specific installation types, such as radiator covers and rotated installations. Provision creation and management has been made easier with discipline-specific default offsets and timestamps, and an improved object selection assists designers in practical design tasks.
The new features also help manage the large amounts of information within a design. Automatic feeder blocks for switchboard schematic drawings provide updated data from the feeding circuit and supply cable. Additions to the system and product installation dialogs, as well as improved connection node handling and reporting provide designers with better access to important information throughout the design process.
MagiCAD is a modular software with applications tailored for the different disciplines of MEP design, enabling powerful modelling and engineering calculations. MagiCAD automates many complex and time-consuming design tasks, saving time in day-to-day design work, and shortening the total project run-through times on average by 30% or more.
