December 16, 2014 – Trimble recently introduced “MEPdesigner for SketchUp”: a new platform extension designed to help you move from a 2-D to the 3-D work environment in “SketchUp Pro”.

MEPdesigner was created specifically for mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) contractors who are looking for an “easy-to-use and cost-efficient” 3-D CAD platform. Version 1.0 will initially support electrical systems objects, including conduit, cable trays and device boxes, and continually expand to incorporate intelligent object data and other MEP systems. The solution also offers tools that allow you to create custom components and route conduit within the SketchUp Pro platform. MEP contractors are able to take advantage of not only the features and components included in Trimble MEPdesigner, but also the database of user-/manufacturer-generated models pre-populated in the SketchUp 3D Warehouse.
