- Duct Sizing:
ducts automatically using
constant velocity, constant pressure drop, and static regain
- Building Load Calculations:
heating and cooling loads
from within AutoCAD.
- Pressure Drop Calculations:
Calculate and document the pressure
drop in your ductwork.
- Ductwork Drafting:
your ductwork in both 2D
to check for collisions between the ductwork and your architect's Revit, Navisworks,
or other 3D model.
- Panel Schedules:
schedules directly in
AutoCAD without having to use Excel.
- One-line Riser Diagrams:
riser diagrams that update
as the rest of your design changes.
- Voltage Drop:
drop on feeders and branch
- Fault Current Calculations:
current at your panels.
- Arc-Flash Calculations:
Calculate arc-flash incident energy and flash-protection boundary distances.
- Feeder and Wire Sizing:
feeders, wires, and conduits
- Lighting and Power Design:
Design, draft, and circuit lighting
and power layouts.
and outdoor photometrics.
- Quantity Takeoffs:
takeoffs for estimation.
to check for collisions between the conduit, cable tray, switch gear,
and other electrical systems and your architect's Revit, Navisworks, or other 3D
- Pipe Drafting: Design, draft, and document both plumbing and piping system layouts.
- Isometrics: Generate isometrics from your 2D plans.
- Pipe Sizing: Size pipes automatically based upon your building code requirements.
- 3D-BIM: Use BIM to check for collisions between the pipes and your architect's Revit, Navisworks, or other 3D model.
