Powerful Design Software within Revit & AutoCAD
MagiCAD makes the design of BIM models easier, faster and more accurate. Fully integrated within Autodesk’s Revit and AutoCAD platforms, MagiCAD offers a set of powerful modelling functions for each MEP discipline and enables integrated system calculations. With MagiCAD, you design with over 1,000,000 intelligent manufacturer-verified BIM objects from leading MEP manufacturers. Additionally, MagiCAD supports many local standards and symbols making it a unique and truly international solution.
MagiCAD automates many time-consuming routine tasks in MEP design, including the creation and editing of standard connections, duct and pipe crossings, elevation changes, as well as various more demanding connections and adjustments. These include, for example, advanced coordination of distribution services, pipe-to-radiator, pipe-to-sanitary outlet, other piping connections and eccentric reductions. MagiCAD enables the drawing of ducts and pipes directly with user-definable and flexibly resizeable insulation series.

Project name: Karlatornet. The tallest building in the Nordics
To imagine an ideal BIM world would be to imagine every construction project being completed on-time and on-budget. The various stakeholders involved in the project would have collaborated and communicated seamlessly regardless of their physical location. Completed buildings would be handed over with advanced maintenance plans, asset registers as well as energy and system information. Following the hand-over to the client, the building would fulfil the exact purpose for which it was created. This is not a futuristic model. We do have these tools today. Armed with the right understanding of what BIM can achieve, professionals the world over are making the right investments towards these outcomes.
MagiCAD enables rapid modelling and fully integrated engineering calculations making the design of accurate BIM models easier, more flexible and less time-consuming. When designing with MagiCAD, you have all it takes to carry out even the most demanding BIM projects. A functional 3D information model of the entire system offers a more accurate and more comprehensive basis for your work than 2D drawings, which lack incorporated data. BIM makes it possible to check beforehand, whether particular real-life components are suitable for the planned installation, both from the perspective of geometrical space requirements as well as from the technical, operational perspective.
MagiCAD also enables thorough integrated calculations and new levels of collaboration between project partners. MagiCAD creates a complete, easy-to-manage information model that can be used as a highly valuable storage of information throughout the building’s lifecycle, from the early conceptual phase, through construction and MEP installation, to facility management and maintenance.
“We have had a positive experience working with MagiCAD to design the MEP systems of ELT.”
“With MagiCAD, designers can reliably verify that the system is working as it should.”
