Trimble has announced the availability of Stabicad for the UK, a Revit®-based design and calculation software
Stabicad improves the productivity and efficiency of mechanical engineers, contractors, and draftspersons in the UK.
From concept to installation, Stabicad provides integrated UK-compliant calculations, up-to-date manufacturer content, prefabrication and productivity tools that empower Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) professionals to work faster and create 3D mechanical constructible models.
Lawrence Smith, general manager of Trimble MEP, said: “Trimble is streamlining workflows with tools that go beyond BIM to create constructible models that are so accurate you can build from them.
“With Stabicad, we have taken an established and popular product from the European market and fully localised it to support UK-specific compliance and standards, making it easy for M&E professionals to design and detail their models with a mature and experienced software that responds to their needs.
“Coupled with ProDesign, our electrical design software for the UK, Trimble’s engineering and drafting solutions are built to meet the needs of the M&E industry.”
Stabicad software provides a variety of key advantages to users by:
- Increasing efficiency by enabling users to create fully calculated designs directly in Revit as part of an integrated workflow rather than through the use of third-party tools;
- Providing UK compliant calculations for ventilation duct sizing, wastewater pipe sizing, tap water pipe sizing as well as heating and chilled water pipe sizing;
- Offering manufacturer-specific, content and Building Information Modeling (BIM) objects that are seamlessly integrated to enable users to create accurate, constructible models;
- Enabling a more efficient assembly and construction phase through its provision of prefabrication tools, helping to transform designs faster into buildings;
- Increasing productivity by providing tools and functions tailored specifically to the needs of M&E consultants and contractors working in Revit;
- Improving communication and coordination between product stakeholders, Stabicad includes access to the Trimble Connect™ cloud-based subscription collaboration platform.
