New release of mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) design tool features expanded capabilities for electrical contractors.
Trimble has focused its development efforts on new tools for electrical contractors with the latest release of its specialist mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) design tool, Trimble MEPdesigner for SketchUp.
New capabilities in version 2.0 include improved electrical construction materials catalogue and expanded component patterns which includes EMT, IMC, PVC and RMC to help contractors and engineers more accurately model electrical systems.
A bendable electrical conduit feature is designed to eliminate the need to use a collection of components to represent a bend in the conduit. According to Trimble, this saves time and produces a more accurate 3D model and bill of materials (BOM).
Trimble has also published a range of electrical components to its 3D Warehouse including: panelboards, lighting panels and transformers.
Trimble MEPdesigner for SketchUp is now available for purchase through the SketchUp Extension Warehouse.
