Designed to accommodate manufacturer content right inside AutoCAD MEP, EC-CAD is a simple-to-learn, easy-to-use MEP solution that offers seamless project coordination, increased productivity, and true-to-life fabrication accuracy right out of the box. With solutions tailored to your specialty, choose either the EC-CAD Sheet Metal solution, the Piping & Plumbing solution, or both.
Real Manufacturer Content
With an up-to-date catalog of manufacturer content and parts, EC-CAD gives you the confidence in knowing that that you're always using the same parts in your designs that you'll be using in your fabrication. Allowing easy filtering and the creation and use of custom fittings, rule and formula-based specifications, and other shop standards, you've got easy access to everything you need to excel.
Easy Transition from Engineer Drawings
With the EastCoast MEP Design to Fabrication software the relationship between detailing HVAC, piping & plumbing and estimating is simplified. Giving contractors and engineers the ability to easily create detailed layouts from engineering designs created in Autodesk Revit, avoiding hours of time-consuming and expensive redrawing. Leaving you in full control of piping and duct system mapping, MEP Design to Fabrication by EastCoast CAD/CAM produces construction layouts and documentation optimized to meet your preferred standards and specifications – and can coordinate these standards with Revit MEP models.
Precision Editing Tools
EC-CAD's precision tools allow you to select the details of real manufacturer parts direction within software dialogs, property and tool palettes, and grips editing commands. With editing commands tailored to sheet metal and mechanical design and fully compatible with AutoCAD MEP commands, you've got an integrated solution that builds automation into as many operations as possible, from auto-tagging and auto-connecting to automatic spool dimensioning.
More than a 3D Model
Your 3D model is only as good as the information contained within them, EC-CAD’s fabrication and spooling feature translates your 3D model to fabricatable drawings for you, your shop or your fabricator.
