Graphisoft yesterday announced the availability of the new Graphisoft MEP Modeler on both the Windows and Macintosh platforms. This new BIM (Building Information Modeling) tool enables architects to better coordinate building projects with more predictable results, reducing time and errors and minimizing or avoiding cost overruns during the design and construction process. 

MEP Modeler for ArchiCAD

The MEP (mechanical/electrical/plumbing) Modeler extends Graphisoft’s market leading BIM application to more fully address the needs of architects and their engineering teams as they migrate to BIM and integrated project delivery processes. MEP Modeler for ArchiCAD 12 can allow users to create, edit and import 3D MEP networks (ductworks, piping, and cable trays) and from third-party applications and then coordinate them with ArchiCAD 12. 

“Coordination issues between trades are one of the biggest source of problems on medium and large building projects,” says Miklos Szovenyi-Lux, director of product management, Graphisoft. “These problems regularly cause as much as two to four percent cost overrun on total project budgets. Our MEP solution identifies problems on projects before they get to the construction site.”

Key features of MEP Modeler are:

  • Powerful MEP modeling tools
  • Powerful routing tools for both 3D and 2D views
  • Rich library of standard parametric parts
  • Interference Detection System – helps coordinate MEP to Architectural and Structural Systems
  • Import capability from AutoCAD MEP 2008/2009 (in 3D)
The MEP Modeler will begin shipping October 22, 2008, in International English and German versions. Other localization versions will ship in the coming weeks.
