New piping software slashes time for modeling workflows

With the new release, EdgeWise MEP for Autodesk Revit, users can now, for the first time, bring extracted pipes, conduits and other cylindrical mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) elements directly into Revit. This new MEP software leverages the powerful feature-extraction technology of EdgeWise to automatically extract pipe solids from laser scan-point clouds. These pipe solids can be automatically connected into pipe runs, annotated with EdgeWise MEP, and then brought directly into Revit as fully functional Revit pipe objects. All data, such as diameter, length, elbow bend radius and more, are also transferred into Revit. Beta testers report modeling-time savings of up to 85% over previous workflows, says the company. Future releases will handle square ducting, cable trays and other planar objects. — ClearEdge3D, Herndon, Va.
