Out-of-the-box Revit provides a global 3D collaborative design platform for all aspects of Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) design. Revit ships as a 3D coordination platform with the ability to perform basic calculations aligned to an American design workflow. In order to use UK content and enable UK calculation outputs, MagiCAD for Revit is the solution of choice. As an Autodesk AEC Solution Associate we work to fill in the localised gaps and align Revit to a country specific design workflow.
For our UK and Irish markets, MagiCAD is localised to meet the calculation, presentation and workflow requirements of the MEP industry. When installed, MagiCAD offers content such as ductwork and pipework fittings, more than 1,000,000 manufacturer-verified MEP product variants, and over 1200 BS engineering symbols. MagiCAD overides the ASHRAE calculation engine enabling UK and Irish customers to perform fully integrated pressure drop calculations, domestic water and drainage diversity calculations, and sprinkler calculations to local standards.
MagiCAD for Revit unlocks the true potential of Revit to offer powerful modelling tools, MEP content, calculation outputs, and the templates required to support the successfull delivery of projects to a UK and Irish design workflow.
