Builderswork openings toolset

MagiCAD’s builderswork openings toolset enables a BIM workflow with other project parties.

  • Coordinate openings with architects and structural engineers
  • Create provisions manually or automatically
  • Import provision reports from structural engineers

The Provision for builderswork openings tool in MagiCAD together with our free add-in application Builders Work Openings allow you to coordinate openings for MEP equipment with architects and structural engineers. The tools enable effective communication on the requirements of provisions for ducts, pipes, cable trays and other segments that pass through a structural element.

You can define offsets, size ranges, symbols, and other settings for the provisions. Provisions can be created into the project manually or automatically based on saved settings.

When the provisions have been created, architects and structural engineers can run the free-of-charge MagiCAD Builders work openings tool to communicate with MEP designers and to approve or deny the provisions.

The Builders work openings tool collects all information in a small xml file that can easily be sent back and forth between the stakeholders. When everything has been checked, the tool creates the openings in the project. In addition, the Builders work openings tool automatically alerts the user whenever the size or position of a provision is changed, or if a provision is deleted.
