MEP-centric BIM library now includes more than one million models from 230 manufacturers
MagiCloud now includes more than one million BIM models and technical details from 230 manufacturers, used primarily by mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) designers. New features include an improved search function to help designers find products more quickly, the ability to search products from 40 market areas, and easier downloading of the 3D models, without requiring any installation.
“Today’s construction projects need to benefit from using BIM, so a detailed 3D plan is created before the build begins,” said Jukka Nyman, Managing Director of Progman. “This enables contractors, architects, MEP designers and engineers to have detailed 3D models, including all of the technical specifications of the building’s MEP elements. Calculations and analysis can be run, and a ‘shopping list’ of components created. It saves considerable time and expense to know a building is going to work before the foundations are dug.”
“Manufacturers in MagiCloud gain a direct line of sale to MEP designers who are actively selecting MEP products like air handling units, plumbing, HVAC, and electrical elements for their builds,” added Progman’s product manager Vilhelm Backman. “Designers are using MagiCloud alongside Revit or AutoCAD to create their MEP drawings.”
