Trimble delivers version 2.0 of MEPdesigner
By Renée Francoeur
August 17, 2015 – Trimble has released version 2.0 of Trimble MEPdesigner for SketchUp, a platform extension to SketchUp Pro specifically designed to improve productivity and ease of use in 3D computer-aided design and Building Information Modeling (BIM) for mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) contractors and engineers.
The new version extends the software’s capabilities with an improved electrical construction materials catalog and expanded component patterns as well as a bendable electrical conduit feature, Trimble said. The addition includes EMT, IMC, PVC and RMC, which allows contractors and engineers to more accurately model electrical systems for today’s construction projects.
Version 2.0 also includes a new bendable conduit feature. This eliminates the need to use a collection of components to represent a bend in the conduit.
MEPdesigner for SketchUp is now available for purchase through the SketchUp Extension Warehouse.
