Fabrication ESTmep™, CADmep™ and CAMduct™ software provide an integrated set of tools for MEP speciality contractors to estimate, detail and drive fabrication of mechanical building systems.

Overview

Fabrication ESTmep™, CADmep™ and CAMduct™ software is a set of integrated tool for MEP estimators, engineers, designers and fabricators that works with Revit to connect MEP fabrication software to BIM.

  • Estimate more accurately and faster with manufacturer-specific content.

  • Design with more detail and accuracy

  • Connect to machines and create flat patterns

ESTMep, CADmep and CAMduct Overview

Estimating

Gain insight into project costs with cost analysis and reporting and generate competitive bids.

Detailing

Create fabrication-intent models of piping, plumbing and ductwork systems.

Fabricating

Produce sheet metal components and control the manufacturing production line.

Features

ESTmep Features
