MagiCAD 2022 is now here

Advanced tools for a new level of accuracy and intelligence in MEP design

Features for Revit Features for AutoCAD Video

MagiCAD 2022 together with the preceding two update releases, 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.

New Feature Highlights for MagiCAD 2022 for Revit

MagiCAD 2022
Ventilation

Accurate duct modelling with new fitting types

New gender types (male/female) for duct fittings remove the need for additional connections and enable new design possibilities. The increased accuracy also helps make the model better suited for installation purposes.

Electrical

Improved Connections to Mechanical function

Multiple improvements to the Connections to Mechanical function enable easier connection node management.

MagiCAD 2022
Piping

Pre-configured pipe and drainage series

MagiCAD now includes a collection of pre-configured pipe and drainage series available for download from MagiCAD Cloud. The series include a set of fittings in compatible sizes for a piping or drainage system.

Piping

Create and install drainage product combinations

Combine drainage products, such as basins and water locks, in the dataset and then install them as a combination into the model. Using product combinations makes it easier to create drainage connections and to add similar systems into the model.

MagiCAD 2021 UR-1
Calculations, Piping

Diversity calculations for heating and cooling systems

Diversity factors enable you to estimate the practical real flow of a heating or cooling system when it is in use. This enables system optimisation to minimize costs and energy consumption.

MagiCAD 2022
Piping

Adjust required radiator power for covered radiators

Add a correction factor to the required radiator power for installations with radiator covers and rotated installations.

MagiCAD 2022
Electrical

Use automatic feeder blocks in switchboard schematics

Add a feeder block into a switchboard schematic drawing to automatically display data from the feeding circuit and its supply cable.

Electrical

Change project for multiple drawings

Merge multiple drawings simultaneously into a project. Bringing multiple drawings to a new project as a batch saves time in updating separately performed design work to a central model and helps ensure that all needed drawings are included in the merge.

MagiCAD 2021 UR-2
Schematics

Use pre-configured symbols for easy creation of air handling unit schematic drawings

When you place a symbol to the schematic drawing, MagiCAD will draw the accompanying cables and connection points automatically without any manual work.

Calculations, Piping

Diversity calculations for heating and cooling systems

Diversity factors enable you to estimate the practical real flow of a heating or cooling system when it is in use. Pipe and pump sizes can then be reduced to match the practical real flow requirements in order to minimise material investments and to produce energy savings.
