Shared content libraries and databases
Fabrication CADmep, Fabrication ESTmep, Fabrication CAMduct, and Revit can share the same libraries of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) content, as well as database settings and structure. Design, estimate, detail, coordinate, fabricate, and manufacture sheet metal without conversion or remodelling.

Sheet metal component library
Access a large library of 3D parametric rectangular, round, and oval ductwork components with their associated developments. Component libraries are available in metric or imperial dimensions, and include elements such as connectors, seams, and notches. You can control the requirements of each manufactured component and base them on specifications such as DW144 and SMACNA.

Sheet metal and linear nesting
Fabrication CAMduct offers advanced algorithms for more precise nesting and better material utilization. Desktop or in the cloud, this feature automatically attempts to find the best fit for all job items to reduce material waste. Or, opt to manually position components on sheets based on your predetermined settings.
