-Create openings for linked MEP in architectural / structural file or vice versa.

Teamwork/collaboration between MEP, architectural & structural engineers-Share opening geometry and data with architects/structural engineers using .xml file.

Openings for IFC MEP elements
-Create openings for current or linked MEP elements from IFC files.

Supported categories
Cable Trays

Make openings for structural elements, such as Walls, Floors, Roofs, Ceilings, Slabs, Beams, Columns, and MEP elements, like Pipes, Ducts, Cable Trays, and Conduits.

Predefined configurations for:
Cut Offset
Joining Distance
Opening Shape
Interference Check

Set configurations for opening size and cut offset from MEP object, define distance between two openings to be merged into one, define opening shape, and allow partial interference.

Round Duct
Rectangular Duct
Oval Duct
Pipe: Fire protection
Pipe: Plumbing
Pipe: Sanitary
Pipe: Hydraulic
Pipe: Other
Cable Tray
MEP Object Size

Configure opening size, cut offset, joining distance, etc. by MEP element’s category and system classification.

Configuration sharing-Share predefined configurations with colleagues.

Calculate opening elevation from:
Project zero point
Global zero point

Calculate opening elevation in accordance with host level, project zero point, or global zero point.

Opening elevation positions

Calculate opening distance to the bottom, top, or center point of opening family.

Openings update if:
MEP changed position
MEP deleted
New opening inserted
Shape changed
MEP size changed

Update openings if MEP elements are deleted, moved, resized, or any other action has been carried out on them.

Manual changes
Change offset
Delete opening
Move opening

Possible to modify openings manually.

Minimum opening size-Set minimum MEP service size limit to insert openings.

Join selected openings-Join selected openings into one bigger opening.
Partial interference openings-Possibility to add openings when MEP is partially clashing with structures.
