"pretty good"

What do you like best?

it is easy to design 2D and 3D drawing , and its very easy handle as well . and the inter face also descent. and it have been there even for a new comers also can easily use this . and the measurement taking also very user friendly .

What do you dislike?

basically there nothing much of problem that we are facing . its when you get the know the product . we can't really complain about it . so basically its a good software . but some time when we use multiple file sometimes the system getting stuck even though we use i 5 8 GM laptops. so its seems like it use lots of memory . and another thing it is hard to copy the drawing to the MS package, but cant complain there is other way that we can import the drawing after saving .

Recommendations to others considering the product:

its very easy to use when you get use to it so its a good product .the way soft ware have been there even though for a new comers also feel very easy to use iy

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

to get the proper measurement of the sites and design the component according to given space. when its some to solar Photo volcanic system design , to get the know the how many panel can install we sketch them and see how many panels that we can install by do the panel pay drawing

"AutoCAD MEP"

What do you like best?

AutoCAD is know for precision drafting. The MEP add on allows you to include 3D mechanical, plumbing and mechanical to your drawings. Personally we work with the electrical content. It makes modeling conduit very easy. The 3D models can be used in BIM coordination using Navisworks for clash detection.

What do you dislike?

AutoCAD does not have the database and connectedness of Revit. For 3D modeling, Revit is still a stronger option to go with. However, AutoCAD MEP does still work very well for its limitations. AutoCAD MEP does not have any way to perform clash detection. This has to be done with additional software.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you do not need the full power of Revit, this is an excellent program to use. Make sure you do full training on the product before you get started on a project.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For smaller projects that do not require all the data, AutoCAD MEP works great. We can model all our 3D content for collaboration on projects very quickly with great accuracy.

"I am working as a BIM coordinator and modeller for the past 2.5 years."

What do you like best?

Auto Cad mep is way better than the revit mep. Sometimes it gets fatal error in the revit mep. And the accuracy is way better than revit because you get connector on service even you have used stretching command.we don't need to export just save and refresh you get the babies updated

What do you dislike?

The speed is lower than revit mep because of SELECT RUN command in bigger run size services and time consumes in command. One more problem of section preparation in auto cad mep is so long process and takes too much time and slice command process is also long.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a helpful in working if are working on US & UK projects it is not used in middle East area .

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am presently working in this software in a project basically these software is used in US & UK projects and need to be prefabricated in the factory instead of making at the size it takes less time . Also I have used this in spooling .

"AUTOCAD MEP AT ITS BEST"

What do you like best?

autocad mep is best software in industry, software works so great.. UI is user friendly, easy to use and toolbars access is good too. When the term says MEP its Mechanical, electrical and plumbing.. Working on autocad makes the work efficient and fast. its helps in designing faster as you have dynamic blocks, which you can resize it as per your needs. It works great, it as both 2D and 3D designing in it. Helps me mechanical ducting (HVAC service) for buildings.

What do you dislike?

There is no dislikes on this software, 3D can be re-looked. its need more feature to be added in it. files do lag sometimes, System requirement is high. nothing apart from that, the software works best.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If your into MEP designing, this is the software you should work on. Its easy to faster to use. works same as revit. but UI is user friendly.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Helps in designing in HVAC and fire-fighting to building as per the needs. Software works great. 3D feature is good, as it gives the clients and architects the clear height on what level the ducts and pipe are being placed. it helps alot in co-ordination too, with other services and level check, if we have some clashes btwn other services

"For 3d modelling and 2d sheet creation AutoCAD mep is used."

What do you like best?

In AutoCAD mep it has many advance tool, we can import or xref PDFs cad background which is very helpful for modelling.we can generate layouts for sheet preparation according to sheet size.in AutoCAD mep we can use any type of services which client want.we can import image also.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike but sometimes it shows fatal error when we create sheets.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For 2d sheet creation, 3d modelling of HVAC , plumbing and electrical it is best software,it gives full length according to material.easy to use,we can set views , best software.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For 3d modelling of plumbing it is very helpful and usable , modelling of drainage piping is simple in autocadmep as compared to revit.services import , export is a good way in AutoCAD mep. Sloping given in drainage pipe is best practice.

"A versatile drafting program for a variety of needs"

What do you like best?

AutoCAD can have a variety of detail levels, from simple stick line drawings to full detail wireframe 3D models. Because of the wide array of drawing tools in the program, it can be easy to draw details of anything needed for projects. The additional focus on MEP systems can help with more detailed projects.

What do you dislike?

It's not a very smart program. Anything drawn requires a lot of editing to get to the level of detail needed, and anything that has to be changed or moved later basically requires drawing the lines all over again and editing those for the new changes. The 3D modeling available isn't very intuitive either, and can still suffer from the same lack of a smart system for moving and editing what's been drawn.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Because AutoCAD is primarily a line drawing software, it will require editing and redrawing to get exactly what you want from it. But it's simpler and easier to jump in to, and will be more cost effective for smaller projects or customers with smaller budgets.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

AutoCAD has been in use for years, the level of detail shown in the drawings improving as the software gained more capability. It can be great for small drawings that need to be done very fast. It is also still the preferred program for making details to be used even in Revit projects because of the ease of creating detailed 2D drawings.

"A must software for construction industry"

What do you like best?

The software is easy to use and can be customized to suit a particular engineering discipline in which industry you are working. The MEP integration fits well with other disciplines which is a useful tool as part of the considerations prior for implementation on site.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, the previous versions of Auto-cad (2017 & below) are slow to open even with small file sizes.

Some of the 3D manipulations are harder than it should be which on this case, Revit would be more advantageous.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Could fast track the design development for MEP discipline then construction drawings can be prepared to be routed for checking and approval. Issues during the course of implementation can be solved with several different approaches. .

"Great MEP version of CAD"

What do you like best?

No need for adding different blocks and drafting ducts, this cad is made for MEP. You can design, size equipments with ease of projection and create services related shop drawing with a very good representation of pipes, cable trays etc. A must recommendation for mechanical and electrical Draftsman.

What do you dislike?

Views are placed in layout, so no xref, instead there is a need for exporting views.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For a accurate representation of building services shop drawing, and for ease of work. I recommend it as it not only saves time but does give very good output.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I did drafting of Fire System using AutoCAD MEP, and loved how easy it was to work with how it gave accurate construction documentation.

"Cad mep functions and error"

What do you like best?

It is helpful for spooling and modeling for perfection. If its database is made keeping in mind all the parameters . Also you can download all the fittings by the name of the manufacturer. I would prefer to the modeller who are working for us, UK projects because they use this software for the prefab shop and to do the job easy. We don't need to export for navis just save and refresh and you will get the changes in navis.

What do you dislike?

It's not user friendly as revit because every when you place the fitting it goes to 0 in z coordinate . Also when we use the command SelectRun for a long loop it takes long time to select all the path also you get fatal error very which can waste your work done.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's helpful for perfect modelling . It's time taking but the final result is awesome

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using this software for USA UK projects for spooling and modelling. The only benefit is you don't need to export for navis

I have worked on this software platform and best thing is the calalogue system which gives you experince of Fabrication and Revit both.

it mostly works on AutoCAD commands so easy to understand and work and process is also fast as compare to other modelling softwares

What do you dislike?

i have faced some troubles while working in plumbing (drainage part) . issues with fittings and you cant do spooling process as like fabrication

and no so good with shop drawing too

overall it is good software but some modification is needed

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Go a head try this software

i have quite good experience with new learning

i wish new versions will come with some new option which help us more

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"MEP standard CAD Software"

What do you like best?

I like that the interface is integrated well to printing. Sharing PDFs printed from AutoCAD are great to share because you get to turn on and off layers without the need to open AutoCAD or a special viewer.

What do you dislike?

For new users or users that haven't used it in a while, commands aren't always intuitive to remember.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's a great CAD software for construction because of the ease of printing plans. It's easy to set up viewports for printing and set up large sets of drawings to print easily. PDFs printed from AutoCAD are great for sharing with readers that aren't AutoCAD users.

"AutoCAD, 2 dimensions"

What do you like best?

Configurable but usable out of the box. Linework needs a standard set.

What do you dislike?

When there are drawing error or drawing is created in a newer version, cannot be recovered.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Set standards need to be followed. Without standards (layers and CTB file), drawings will not appear as you intend. The colors you see on the screen aren't always what you print.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Making PDFs can be difficult and sometimes how you see your drawing in one PDF program, might not look the same in another program. Example, Bluebeam versus Adobe.

"Fundamental software in MEP Industry"

What do you like best?

1. Intuitive interface

2. Quick shortcut commands.

3. Ability to add tools like AutoWORD and AutoTABLE which allows to bring in Microsoft Word and Excel documents.

What do you dislike?

1. AutoCAD 2017 is slow to open drawings sometimes even small files.

2. As much as I like the software, I feel like the Revit software by Autodesk will overtake AutoCAD MEP in the building design industry.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use AutoCAD while it is still relevant but I'm afraid that with the push for BIM (Building Information Modeling) in the industry, it may become a more irrelevant design software in the next 5-10 years.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The software allows drawing tools which its predecessors like Microstation did not allow. It is perfect when the contract deliverable are 2D set of drawings.

"A Version that meets many production requirements across various disciplines "

What do you like best?

Flexible and fully customizable to our particular disciplines and industry. The MEP integration fits well with the disciplines we offer and production models within our business units. Its integration with Revit and standardization in the architectural industry makes the learning curve and expense well worth its deployment.

What do you dislike?

It requires dedicate users to really master its use and get the benefits of the powerful feature it offers. Mid-level users benefit from it as well, but dedicated production teams are typically needed for efficiency.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Review the requirements for implementation, particularly on computing power, server storage and licensing models. This powerful software can solve many production issues if deployed properly and with appropriate resources. The additional offerings from AutoDesk pair complement ACAD MEP and improve production quality and output, however, a careful selection is advantageous in terms of investment required.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Standardization in production styles and techniques. As a large company is is very important to produce a uniform and consistent product output in an efficient manner. ACAD MEP helps us do that well.

"Pros and cons of AUTOCAD MEP"

What do you like best?

Thing that I like about autocad MEP , it allows to model in 3D like Revit and its little bit better than fabrication .

What do you dislike?

In this software drainage modeling is very difficult as changing slope in pipe is very much difficult along with it editing families is also quite problematic.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would rather advice not to use autocad MEP

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Not so much benefits. As this software inherits some features or revit and fabrication it’s very helpful in modeling without slopes.

"Autocad MEP is my go to software to get a job done fast."

What do you like best?

What I like about Autocad is that it"s very easy to use. If I need a job do quickly, I would do it on Autocad MEP. It is very easy to build equipment parts for my jobs and the 3D is very easy to move around in.

What do you dislike?

Some of the things that would make Autocad MEP better is that if you could use the arrow keys to move duct or pipe just that little bit, as you can in Revit. Sometimes Autocad can get a little flaky and move parts to no mans land.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

All I can say is that it's easy to get trained and up and working in a short period of time

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I don't know if Autocad has solved any business problems for me or not.

"Autocad MEP and Modelling"

What do you like best?

Autocad MEP provide exact kind of fitting used in modelling of a place project and can directly be used in fabrication for the site use. It uses database in order to sort pipe material and it's fitting with automatic routing preferences.

What do you dislike?

One cannot align pipes in autocad mep as it does provide features of aligning. Second it also causes problem when you model MEP pipes in this as pipes with offset or automatically gets placed at any locations and it hangs most of the time.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Good software if you are looking for fabrication of parts by mep in BIM

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fitting and fabrication problem can be solved easily.
