Ensuring clean, healthy air indoors is one of the most challenging tasks in modern buildings. MagiCAD makes this task easier by providing a set of modelling and productivity enhancing functions that cut down on routine mechanical design work. With MagiCAD, even demanding duct routing solutions are easy to model.

In addition, MagiCAD enables accurate calculations, adjustments and optimisation of the ventilation systems in the design phase. It offers a large selection of built-in calculations, such as flow summation, sizing, balancing and sound calculations.

MagiCAD Ventilation fully integrates within the Revit software platform.

Advanced Modelling Tools

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

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

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 ventilation systems are included:

  • Sizing (multiple methods)
  • Balancing (multiple methods)​
  • Index run identification
  • Sound and Space calculations
  • Extend Flow Analyses incl. sound analyse​
  • Diversity 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.

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 300 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.

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
  • 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.
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.
