CADPIPE HVAC enables you to easily create professional 3D HVAC models, fabrication,
and construction drawings. CADPIPE’s spec-driven and highly automated duct routing
tools rapidly create intelligent models with the detail needed to fabricate and install
Out of the Box Pipe Specifications
CADPIPE HVAC comes with a number of complete SMACNA specifications for all standard
water gauges. Users can customize and control all specifications for HVAC systems
including: size range, material, connection, schedule, fittings, default pipe lengths,
gauge, etc. Easy to use tools allow you to incorporate new specs or edit to existing
Automatic HVAC Placement and Routing-line
Use the Auto-Route command to route duct and fittings horizontally and vertically,
to or from any object or reference point. Use the Routing Line command to create
HVAC centerlines then allow the Auto-Route feature to place the duct and fittings.
Automatic Collision Checking Features
CADPIPE’s Collision Check is both interactive and works in a batch mode. Collision
Alert dialogue box will appear at the moment a collision occurs, with query and viewing
tools to examine the problem and calculate the move needed for proper clearance.
The Batch Collision tool provides for additional periodic interference checking of
the entire drawing or of a specified area. Both modes will detect interference with
any AutoCAD or ADT 3D objects.
Duct Fabrication Made Easy
Automatic download feature allows you to automatically send shop fabrication information
to the most popular HVAC plasma cutting tables. Complete fabrication reports are
generated for all fittings downloaded.
Complete Bill of Materials Reports
Automatic and instantaneous generation of bills of materials for purchasing, estimation
and fabrication can be produced for all HVAC items. These reports can be printed
or outputted to spreadsheets or databases for manipulation.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
● HVAC accessories module automates the creation of grills, registers, fan units,
VAV boxes, diffusers,dampers, etc.
A complete report of all accessories can be printed or sent to spreadsheet.
● Powerful interactive or batch collision checking with all AutoCAD or ADT 3D objects
and a direct link to Navisworks Jetstream design review software.
● Automatic sections can be made directly from the 3D model. The section command
creates section drawing in paper space and links them back to the model.
● Complete bill of material reports can be generated for all items and then output
to spreadsheets or database programs.
● Link to estimating programs will give complete counts of all items and download
those items to estimating software for complete estimate of all parts, labor and
costs associated with that project.
● Ability to create and place 3D architectural items (beams, columns, lights, walls,
etc.) easily for background information and collision checking options.
