MagiCAD Piping

A complete BIM software for piping design and calculations

Time-saving Functions for Piping Design within Revit

MagiCAD Piping offers a complete BIM solution for the design and calculation of heating, cooling and domestic water systems, including drainage, sprinkler and specialist systems. It contains a number of productivity and modelling functions that save HVAC designers’ time.

MagiCAD also provides comprehensive sizing and balancing calculations so that with a few mouse clicks, you can select suitable radiators, add sanitary outlets and then calculate system sizing and balancing for heating, cooling and DWS systems. In addition, you can also use sanitary outlets to calculate diversified drainage flow rates.

MagiCAD Piping fully integrates within the Revit software platform.

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.

BIM Product Libraries

Manufacturer certified BIM objects
MagiCAD Libraries are Europe’s largest selection of BIM objects for Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing design
 
Adjustable Generic Objects with MagiCAD Create
MagiCAD Create is a complementary software for creating custom MEP product libraries
 
Plugins for selection tools
Plugins connect manufacturers’ selection tools and configurators to MagiCAD
 

MagiCAD enables immediate access to over 1,000,000 data-rich MEP objects from over 280 leading international manufacturers. Our library of manufacturer-verified BIM objects offers a wide range of pipes, valves, radiators or any other installation products needed for MEP design.

In addition, we offer a generic object library and editing software for use in cases when you do not find the necessary product in our extensive selection of ready-made BIM objects. With the help of our editing software, MagiCAD Create, you can quickly create the required objects by editing the generic ones.

Advanced Modelling Tools

MagiCAD automates many time-consuming routine tasks in piping design, including the creation and editing of standard connections, pipe crossings, elevation changes, as well as various more demanding connections and adjustments.

MagiCAD enables the drawing of pipes directly with user-definable and flexibly resizeable insulation series.

Wide support for European standards
These include language, template, MEP symbols and calculations
Local symbols
Add local 2D symbol to selected 3D models plus a dynamic installation interface that adopts to the selected product

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 meet. They ensure the quality of the design without re-work and parallel non-synchronized model. The following calculations for the piping systems are included:

  • Heating & Cooling Sizing
  • Hydronic Balancing
  • Index Run support
  • Specific Heat Capacity support
  • Difference pressure valve support
  • Domestic Water Sizing
  • Domestic Water Balancing
  • Drainage Flow calculations

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.

Plugins

When the manufacturer has highly customisable products, a large number of product variants, or they want to help their customers in selecting and installing the most suitable product in each situation, a product selection plugin is specifically developed. Over 20 MagiCAD Plugins connect manufacturers’ product selection and calculation software directly to MagiCAD, making product selection faster, easier and more accurate.

Once you have selected a product, you can import and place the product from the plugin in your MagiCAD model just as any other intelligent MagiCAD object. Information about the dimensions and technical data is included in the product model.

You will also get direct access to a wider range of more complex and more configurable products, for example air handling units (AHUs).

Licensing options

Standalone licenses: node-locked licenses, which allow the Customer to run the Software on a single workstation

Network licenses: licenses that are not tied to a particular workstation, so this method provides a flexible and efficient approach.

Maintenance

With the MagiCAD Maintenance plan you will receive all MagiCAD updates automatically as soon as they are released, making Maintenance the most cost-effective way of managing and updating licenses and software versions within an organisation. Once new updates are available, the customer can choose which updates to install and when to do so.

  • You always have the latest version of MagiCAD automatically.
  • Maintenance is always cheaper than normal updates.
  • Stationary annual payment makes budgeting easier.
  • A Maintenance plan can be signed for one, two or three years at a time, with discounts for two-year and three-year plans
