MagiCAD 2021 is now here

Including gas design tools, 180+ new intelligent MEP functions and improved workflows for Revit & AutoCAD

Features for Revit Features for AutoCAD Video

MagiCAD 2021, together with the preceding two update releases, brings extensive new functionality for MEP design in Autodesk Revit and AutoCAD environments. The new version introduces tools for the design of a completely new system type, and provides numerous features that improve workflows, enable effective cooperation, and enhance the overall MEP design experience.

New Feature Highlights for MagiCAD 2021 for Revit

MagiCAD 2021
Piping, Calculations

Gas system design with integrated calculations

New gas specific parts, including gas valves, gas taps and gas meters, have been added to the piping module, enabling the design of gas-powered water heating, and gas connector support has been added to heating and cooling plant products.

MagiCAD 2021
Electrical

Install back boxes for electrical devices

You can now install back boxes together with electrical devices. Including back boxes enables the modelled conduit system to be used, for example, in concrete element pre-fabrication, and for calculating more accurate bills of materials.

MagiCAD 2021
Electrical

Create automatic main riser diagrams

You can now create main riser diagrams of electrical networks automatically, saving a considerable amount of time and manual work.

Piping

Upgraded drainage connection tool

New routing options, angle support and fitting connections in the drainage connection tool provide dramatic increases in modelling speed, flexibility, and accuracy with complex drainage systems.

MagiCAD 2021
Schematics

Renewed Update Parameter tool and improved handling of parameters in Schematics

The Update Parameter tool has been renewed with improved functions and discipline specific tabs separating the settings. MagiCAD Schematics also now offers similar functionalities for parameter handling as other MagiCAD software.

MagiCAD 2021
Sprinkler

New routing options for sprinkler connections

The Sprinkler Connection tool now supports sprinkler connections to both sides of the selected pipe.

MagiCAD 2020 UR-2
Electrical

Perform electrical calculations based on real circuiting

The new version enables electrical calculations for all load circuits. Longest branch lengths can be calculated by using wire lengths or orthogonal lengths between devices.

MagiCAD 2020 UR-2
Common Tools

Upgraded Provision for Builderswork Openings tool with many new capabilities and Autodesk Fabrication support

An extensive upgrade of the Provisions for Builderswork Openings tool enables many new capabilities and Autodesk Fabrication support.

MagiCAD 2020 UR-1
Electrical

Connection nodes between Electrical and HVAC systems

Connection nodes allow electrical designers to collaborate with mechanical designers regarding the power demands and electrical connection needs of their equipment.

MagiCAD 2020 UR-1
Common Tools

Clearance Analysis tool for MEP elements, supports and hangers and structural elements

The new Clearance Analysis tool allows designers to ensure the required free height from the floor to the lowest-hanging MEP object. Plan drawings can be color-coded according to free height and users can also receive real-time feedback on clearance.

MagiCAD 2020 UR-1
Calculations

Adding MagiCAD calculation data to 3rd party Revit families

Users can now enter calculation data to 3rd party Revit products. This enables reliable calculations to be performed for products that are not found in the MagiCAD product library.

New Feature Highlights for MagiCAD 2021 for AutoCAD

MagiCAD 2021
Piping

Adjust the elevation of drainage pipes

You can now easily adjust the elevation of drainage pipes. Simply select a pipe in the system and edit its height level. The elevation or length of connected pipes will automatically be adjusted to accommodate the change.

MagiCAD 2021
Ventilation, Piping

Perform sizing according to maximum flow

You can now perform sizing according to maximum flow for heating and cooling, domestic water and ventilation systems. Flow has been added to the available sizing criteria, in addition to pressure drop and velocity.

MagiCAD 2021
Electrical

Install back boxes for electrical products

You can now install back boxes together with electrical devices. Including back boxes enables the modelled conduit system to be used, for example, in concrete element pre-fabrication, and for calculating more accurate bills of materials.

MagiCAD 2021
Ventilation, Piping, Electrical

New Installation codes in Ventilation, Piping and Electrical

New installation codes have been added to Ventilation and Piping and existing ones have been extended in Electrical to include cable trays, conduits and lighting tracks.

MagiCAD 2021
Electrical

Model accurate vertical bends for conduits and cables

You can now set user-defined radius values for vertical bends when drawing conduits and cables. Setting radius values enables more accurate 3D modelling.

MagiCAD 2021
Room

Merge walls in MagiCAD Room

Walls that have been split to two or more sections can now be easily merged back together with a new Merge Walls function.

MagiCAD 2021
Electrical

Enhanced switchboard and host management

Improvements to the switchboard and host management features provide a smooth and effective user experience.

MagiCAD 2020 UR-2
Electrical

Connection nodes between HVAC and Electrical systems

Connection nodes allow electrical designers to collaborate with mechanical designers regarding the power demands and electrical connection needs of their equipment.

MagiCAD 2020 UR-2
Ventilation, Piping, Electrical

Perform crossings for multiple pipes, ducts, or cable trays simultaneously

Select the first segment and the length of the crossing and then select other segments that will perform the same crossing. You can set angles and offsets for the crossing and preview the results before updating the model.
