What are advanced features of Autodesk AutoCAD MEP 2017
The application automates design creation and documentation generation as other tasks to assist mechanical designers, electrical and plumbing engineers to develop more accurate designs, drafts and plans as well as generate correct documentation of the project. The top feature of any Autodesk product is active linking. Right on the start of a new project the software creates standard documents needed to relate the project to other stages of building construction. Each time you make changes to the initial draft of the project they will be taken and correctly applied to the documentation. Thus you avoid manual work, reduce the number of mistakes and get accurate and up to date documents to report to stakeholders or investors at any time.
Among advanced features of Autodesk AutoCAD MEP 2017 you will discover:
AutoCAD architecture support – you can import any AutoCAD project to work on flat or 2D plans. This helps to consider project details and instantly create correct MEP designs.
Automatic measurements – from now on you will not need to make additional calculations of measurements as right when you set new space, the software automatically calculates the measurements and includes the measurements into all necessary documents. Mind that if you delete a measured object, all the measurements will also be erased from all documents on the project.
Online knowledge base for boost starting your project – get instant access to the knowledge base, tips of how to accelerate, boost and enhance design process. The knowledge base is of great use as for beginners so for pro users.
