With today’s challenges of cost-containment and project complexity, construction companies are beginning to realize technology tools can make all the difference.

As one example, Victaulic, www.victaulic.com, Easton, Pa., recently introduced Victaulic Tools for Revit, an Autodesk, www.autodesk.com, San Rafael, Calif., Revit MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) add-in that increases drawing productivity, solves troublesome pipe routing problems, and enables the creation of construction and fabrication documentation within Revit.

Victaulic Tools for Revit allows users to route pipe twice as fast and increase efficiency and productivity, according to the company.

The productivity tools within Victaulic Tools for Revit allow users to design virtual, intelligent models with all mechanical or pump room details in half the time compared to current routing techniques within Revit, says Victaulic, and the enhanced routing and editing tools enable the creation of complex piping systems with fewer clicks.

Industry professionals will find many benefits of this advanced technology, including features that increase routing efficiency such as: pipe splitting; rotate selection; resize selection; delete pipe; pipe/custom tagging; family lookup; directory lookup; create assembly; procurement tool; and fabrication spool sheet creation, from a 3D view.

Victaulic Tools for Revit features an intuitive, user-friendly interface that simplifies training and usage for both new and experienced Revit users. The add-in works in all views, comes preloaded with more than 100 Victaulic product families and template designs, and allows users to route with Victaulic, as well as other manufacturers and joining technologies.
