MagiCAD Piping

Time-saving Functions for Piping Design within Revit

MagiCAD Piping offers a complete BIM solution for the design and calculation of heating, cooling and domestic water systems, including drainage, sprinkler and specialist systems. It contains a number of productivity and modelling functions that save HVAC designers’ time.

MagiCAD also provides comprehensive sizing and balancing calculations so that with a few mouse clicks, you can select suitable radiators, add sanitary outlets and then calculate system sizing and balancing for heating, cooling and DWS systems. In addition, you can also use sanitary outlets to calculate diversified drainage flow rates.

MagiCAD Piping fully integrates within the Revit software platform.

Eigenschappen en functies van MagiCAD Piping

Advanced Modelling Tools

MagiCAD automates many time-consuming routine tasks in piping design, including the creation and editing of standard connections, pipe crossings, elevation changes, as well as various more demanding connections and adjustments.

MagiCAD enables the drawing of pipes directly with user-definable and flexibly resizeable insulation series.

Specifically developed product selection & product installation tools
Make it easy to select the correct products fast and accurately depending on the design criteria

Pipe Drawing Setup Tool
Fast configuration of routing preferences for pipe work modelling

Specifically  developed routing tools
Simplify pipe work modelling with functions including standard, pipe, drainage, sprinkler, device and under floor heating connections


Integrated Engineering Calculations

MagiCAD’s BIM objects are modelled from physical products to a high level of detail, with correct dimensions and technical data provided by the manufacturer. The technical values are always present in the model, enabling accurate calculations during design. With MagiCAD the designer can calculate while designing​ and compare different alternatives achieving more in less time.

Integrated calculations enable dimensioning, analysing and verifying that the  design requirements are meet. They ensure the quality of the design without re-work and parallel non-synchronized model. The following calculations for the piping systems are included:

  • Heating & Cooling Sizing
  • Hydronic Balancing
  • Index Run support
  • Specific Heat Capacity support
  • Difference pressure valve support
  • Domestic Water Sizing
  • Domestic Water Balancing
  • Drainage Flow calculations

Furthermore, MagiCAD is localised to meet the calculation, presentation and work-flow requirements of some of the major European markets. This enables customers to perform fully integrated calculations to local standards.

BIM Product Libraries

MagiCAD enables immediate access to over 1,000,000 data-rich MEP objects from 300 leading international manufacturers. Our library of manufacturer-verified BIM objects offers a wide range of pipes, valves, radiators or any other installation products needed for MEP design.

In addition, we offer a generic object library and editing software for use in cases when you do not find the necessary product in our extensive selection of ready-made BIM objects. With the help of our editing software, MagiCAD Create, you can quickly create the required objects by editing the generic ones.
