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.

STANDARDS AND SPECIFICATIONS

CIBSE Guide C:
This reference data is used when MagiCAD performs ductwork and pipework pressure drop calculations within the Revit MEP environment.
Intelligent and dynamic:
The calculation engine uses fitting and flow properties to enable automatic pressure drop factor selection for CIBSE tables.
Transparency:
MagiCAD offers clear calculation output with the ability to generate detailed reports for ease of reviewing and QA purposes. The dynamic calculation report within the Revit environment enables users to instantly interrogate any component within a calculated branch or system in detail.

BS EN STANDARDS FOR PIPEWORK

Modelled pipe components:
Fittings as well as the internal and external diameters of pipes have been accurately modelled and are in line with BS and EN standards.
Pipe roughness:
Reference data has been taken from the CIBSE Guide C and/or BS and EN values to ensure that roughness figures are compliant with UK requirements.
Pipework materials and fittings:
A combination of general BS and EN standards and manufacturer based pipework systems are readily available.

DW144 STANDARDS FOR METAL DUCTWORK

Modelled duct components:
Duct fittings in conjunction with standard circular and rectangular duct sizes have been accurately modelled for realistic usage. Rectangular Width to Height Ratios can be pre-set to ensure these are not exceeded during the sizing calculation.
Joint systems:
Flanged and slip joint systems are available together with intelligent fittings to enable easy modelling and connections.

Duct roughness:
Reference data has been taken from the CIBSE Guide C to ensure that roughness figures are compliant with UK requirements.

STANDARDS FOR SPRINKLER CALCULATIONS

Sprinkler design:
MagiCAD includes the necessary standards required to produce approved sprinkler system designs including BS 9251:2014, BS EN 12845:2009, NFPA 13, UNI 10779 and CEA 4001.

UNICLASS 2015 CODES IN ALL PRODUCTS

Classification codes:
All products including the Mechanical and Electrical systems in the UK dataset and template contain the Uniclass 2015 classification codes. The same parameter is used for all products ensuring consistency in all equipment and device scheduling.

BS 1553 UK ENGINEERING SYMBOL LIBRARY

2D symbols:
MagiCAD’s symbol library contains over 1200 BS graphical engineering symbols which can be used with electrical and mechanical components as defined by the user.

BS 8558, BS EN 806 & CIPHE DOMESTIC WATER DIVERSITY CALCULATIONS

MagiCAD uses a database of loading units and design flow rates for all outlet and appliance types compliant with UK BS and EN diversified usage calculation and pipe sizing standards. MagiCAD also offers the ability to configure user-defined loading units and flow rates.

BS EN 12056 DRAINAGE DIVERSITY CALCULATIONS

MagiCAD enables diversified drainage calculations within the Revit environment with all outputs being compliant with the BS EN 12056 standard.

CONNECTION NODES

Users can add loading units and design flow rates into connection nodes. The technical data contained in these nodes can then be used for the future extension of a system, shell and core projects and also early stage design.

MEP EQUIPMENT AND CONTENT

Europe’s largest content library:
MagiCAD enables immediate access to over 1,000,000 data rich MEP products from more than 250 globally renowned manufacturers. This number is increasing steadily, as new products and manufacturers are constantly introduced to the database.
AHU plugins:
MagiCAD has a range of AHU plugins to enable easier product selection and customisation. The plugins are special software add-ons that connect MagiCAD with the manufacturers’ AHU selection software. Fully customised AHU’s can be imported into MagiCAD, complete with dimensions and technical data.
Data rich products:
MagiCAD’s content offers specific and dynamic technical data and intelligence over and above standard Revit parameter values.
