MagiCAD Electrical

A complete BIM software for electrical design and calculations

Fast and Accurate Electrical Design within Revit and AutoCAD

MagiCAD Electrical offers a comprehensive BIM solution for the design and calculation of electrical, lighting, telecommunication and data systems. It includes tools that assist with electrical calculations, simplify the drafting of electrical circuiting detail, create switchboard schematics, and provide advanced circuiting functions in synchronisation with drawings. MagiCAD Electrical also provides access to MagiCAD’s product libraries containing a wide range of electrical products with correct geometries and technical data.

MagiCAD Electrical fully integrates within the Revit and AutoCAD software platforms.

Advanced Modelling Tools

MagiCAD automates many time-consuming routine tasks in Electrical design, including wire drawing and containment system modelling, product installation, and the creation of device connections.

MagiCAD also provides tools for seamless work between 3D and 2D models, from symbol management to automatic creation of schematics.

MagiCAD’s BIM objects are modelled from physical products to a high level of detail, with correct dimensions and technical data provided by the manufacturer. The technical values are always present in the model, enabling accurate calculations during design. With MagiCAD the designer can calculate while designing and compare different alternatives achieving more in less time.

Integrated calculations enable dimensioning, analysing and verifying that the design requirements are met. They ensure the quality of the design without re-work and a parallel non-synchronized model.

Furthermore, MagiCAD is localised to meet the calculation, presentation and work-flow requirements of some of the major European markets. This enables customers to perform fully integrated calculations to local standards.

Common Tools

All MagiCAD modules include the Common Tools which is a shared layer of functions for enhancing the productivity of design work.

MagiCAD Ventilation, Piping, Electrical, Schematics, Sprinkler Designer and Supports & Hangers each provide a wide range of discipline-specific modelling and calculation functions that work in synergy with the set of multidisciplinary design tools provided by the Common Tools.

What you need to know

There are many options to choose from when selecting MagiCAD software for MEP. The following information provides a simple guide for making your choice easy:

Choose the Autodesk platform where you will run MagiCAD

  • MagiCAD for Revit fully integrates and functions seamlessly within the Autodesk Revit and Building Design Suite platforms and runs on Windows OS.
  • MagiCAD for AutoCAD fully integrates and functions seamlessly within the Autodesk AutoCAD, AutoCAD Architecture, or AutoCAD MEP platforms and runs on Windows OS.
  • MagiCAD Suite is an optimal choice if you run projects on both Autodesk Revit and AutoCAD platforms.

Choose the MEP discipline or disciplines you will focus on

MagiCAD offers several discipline-specific modules for you to choose from. MagiCAD’s BIM object libraries and Common Tools are inclusive within each module.

  • MagiCAD Ventilation – available for Revit and AutoCAD platforms
  • MagiCAD Piping – available for Revit and AutoCAD platforms
  • MagiCAD Electrical – available for Revit and AutoCAD platforms
  • MagiCAD Schematics – available for Revit and AutoCAD platforms
  • MagiCAD Sprinkler Designer– sold as a bundle with MagiCAD Piping, available for Revit and AutoCAD platforms
  • MagiCAD Supports & Hangers – available for the Revit platform
  • MagiCAD Circuit Designer – available for the AutoCAD platform
  • MagiCAD Comfort & Energy – available for the AutoCAD platform
  • MagiCAD Room – available for the AutoCAD platform

Choose the license type that best suits your needs

  • Perpetual Licenses
    • Stand-alone Licence Model (SLM): This type of licence is node-locked and is tied to a particular PC workstation. These licences are ideal for individuals or small office environments requiring only a few personnel to access and use the software.
    • Network Licence Model (NLM): This type of licence is not tied to a particular PC workstation and therefore it offers a more flexible option than SLM. Each network license entitles one user of the software product at a time. Network licences are ideal for larger organisations that require many individuals to access and use the software.
    • Maintenance for Perpetual Licenses offers licensing with access to the latest software main release and software update releases.
  • Subscription Licenses
    • Subscription offers fixed-term based licensing. Both SLM and NLM licencing models are available. Access to the latest software main release and software update releases are included. Fixed-term subscriptions are available as shorter 3 and 6-month contracts as well as longer 12, 24 and 36-month contracts. Subscription licenses are available for MagiCAD Ventilation, MagiCAD Piping, MagiCAD Electrical, MagiCAD Schematics and MagiCAD Supports & Hangers.
  • Educational licenses
    • These licences are only for educational purposes and are available for universities, colleges and institutes. Educational licences contain a range of MagiCAD modules with full functionality. The license term is fixed to 12 months at a time.

Onboarding

New MagiCAD software can be sold with an additional paid training package. MagiCAD Group and our partners arrange software training for both new and existing customers. Dependent on the platform and the combination of modules to be trained, a tailored training package is assembled and delivered.
