MagiCAD Common Tools for Revit are a diverse array of productivity and collaboration functions available alongside each of the core modules. The tools are extremely useful for all technicians and engineers alike, when creating and delivering models using MagiCAD within the Revit environment.
Below is a selection of some of the tools and functions that MagiCAD Common Tools for Revit offers. Contact us here to learn more about these tools in further detail.
MagiCAD Clash Detection
A new tool for live or on-demand clash detection in your entire Revit project
A new tool for live or on-demand clash detection in your entire Revit project
The new MagiCAD Clash Detection tool makes coordination between the different design disciplines easier, faster and more reliable. You can select one of two approaches for detecting clashes: real-time detection while you carry out modelling or on-demand detection. MagiCAD Clash Detection detects two types of clashes: hard clashes where the elements physically collide and soft clashes where the clash occurs between the clearance zones defined for the objects. The colours signifying hard clashes and soft clashes can be defined by the user.
The Clash Detection tool creates a clash report in the BCF Manager. In the BCF Manager, you can carry out coordination using MagiCAD’s editing features, create and add images to illustrate problem spots, as well as add comments to the topics included in the clash report. The clash reports can be exported and imported, enabling easy sharing of the report and the attached images and comments with project partners.
MagiCAD Builders work openings tool
A Builders Work tool that enables BIM workflow with other parties
A Builders Work tool that enables BIM workflow with other parties. It ensures the needed communication with architects and structural engineers for provisions for ducts, pipes, cable trays or any other containment that passes through a wall, roof, slab or similar. The automatic Builders work openings tool creates provisions based on the project settings.
If there is a need for communication around the provisions, architects and structural engineers can run the free of charge tool, Builders work openings tool, to approve or deny the provisions. Builders work openings tool collects all information in a small xml file that can be sent back and forth between the stakeholders. When everything has been checked, the tool cuts the holes. In addition, the Builders work openings tool automatically alerts the user whenever a hole or provision is changed in size or position, or if one of them is deleted.
Used for cutting ducts, pipes or trays into standard lengths. With this tool it is easy and fast to cut ducts, pipes or trays into commercially available standard lengths once the containment has been modelled. In addition, coupling, flanges or similar can automatically be inserted between each length.

Numbers components and equipment with unique configurable numbering formats. The purpose of the running indexes (RI) is to set a unique number ID to the parts that are placed in e.g. a system of data sockets. The running index tool can create, remove, renumber, re-move gaps and duplicates all according to the needs and your definition. The Running Index numbers can later on be tagged or used in Object ID strings that can be configured with MagiCAD’s Parameter Configuration & Parameter Merge tools.

Merges parameters automatically. By using the Parameter Configuration tool it is possible combine two or more parameters into one new target parameter. When the configuration is made, the parameter merge takes care of the actual merging fully automatically.

Makes it easy to import and export information. It is used for handling information and parameters that might be easier to manage outside the actual Revit model, possibly also by someone in another team. The Spread Sheet Link is a very powerful tool when it comes to delivery and information handling.
With Spread Sheet Link it is possible to export and import parameters for selected objects of a certain type e.g. instance or type specific parameters for a selected range of work.

Enables replacing any product type with another similar one. The Find and Replace Tool replaces any product without any disconnects or position changes. The replaced product also inherits all the given parameters from the originally installed product. With the integrated zoom box it is easy to check the replacements done. The tool works for both Ventilation, Piping and Electrical products.

Enables collaboration in a BIM project. Consider that you are responsible for design coordination in a large and complex project. Once the issues are document and actions decided, the problematic part is finding all the issues afterwards in your project file. By exporting and importing BCF (Building Collaboration Format) files in addition to the traditional meeting minutes, the BCF tool automatically zooms and finds the problematic situation in your BIM model. All meeting notes and agreed action are of course conveniently available to read at the same time.

Exports files according to IFC 2x3 v.2 or IFC 4. Files can be exported one by one or by using the IFC batch export configuration tool.
IFC Export & Property Set Manager is a reliable, easy configurable and highly automated tool for exporting IFC files with properly configured information sets. This is invaluable at a time when the delivery of information rich IFC models have become a standard demand for BIM projects in many market areas.
Creates and updates legends according to your configuration.
Enables removal of all manufacture specific information from the project. It is an optimal tool to use when it is time to deliver your Revit models to another stake holder in the project. At the same time that it removes all manufacture specific information, the Clean-up & Deliver tool can purge and audit your file. In addition, it tidies away unwanted sheets, views, links, schedules and legends. Further, it enables you to get rid of revisions and make the file more compact.
What you need to know
There are many options to choose from when selecting MagiCAD software for MEP. MagiCAD for Revit fully integrates and functions seamlessly within the Autodesk Revit and Building Design Suite platforms and runs on Windows OS.
The following information provides a simple guide for making your choice easy:
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 platform
MagiCAD Piping – available for Revit platform
MagiCAD Electrical – available for Revit platform
MagiCAD Schematics – available for Revit platform
MagiCAD Sprinkler Designer– sold as a bundle with MagiCAD Piping, available for Revit platform
MagiCAD Supports & Hangers – available for the Revit platform
Choose the license type that best suits your needs
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 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.
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.
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.
