3D LINES TO MEP SUITE

3D Lines to MEP Suite reads line and polyline data from imported DWG or DXF files and creates a matching pipe, duct, conduit or cable tray network to your specifications. A total of 9 Revit commands to improve your workflow when creating as built MEP in BIM

The DWG or DXF files can easily be created from existing pointcloud data in AutoCAD then imported to Revit for creation of the MEP network.

This app is designed to help Surveyors, Engineers, Architects, 3D Revit Modellers and 3D Laser scanning technicians who need import as-built conditions and subterranean networks from site to office. It automates the tedious manual input of MEP elements that must match existing data.

It very accurately matches the centre line of the pipe to the imported lines, and you are able to choose dimensions, types and which level to add the MEP elements to during the processing phase.

The Suite features 9 Revit Commands:

Make Cable Tray: Reads lines from import instance layers and creates Cable Tray system to match

Make Conduit: Reads lines from import instance layers and creates Conduit system to match

Make Duct: Reads lines from import instance layers and creates duct system to match

Make Duct: Reads lines from import instance layers and creates pipe system to match

Import Hide/Show: toggles visibility of DWG and DXF instances in a single click

Cable Tray Hide/Show: toggles visibility of cable tray elements in a single click

Cable Tray Hide/Show: toggles visibility of cable tray elements in a single click

Duct Hide/Show: toggles visibility of duct elements in a single click

Pipe Hide/Show: toggles visibility of pipe elements  in a single click

1. Insert Pre-prepared DWG or DXF file via the Revit insert tab.

2. Go to Add-ins tab and click the Make Pipe button. (or make Cable Tray, Conduit or Duct)

3. Click on the DWG instance within the Revit document and the app will prompt you to set up your desired read layer, output level, size and system type.

4. The app will create pipes to match the line data exactly and report on number of pipes created.
