Progman releases MagiCAD 2019 with clash detection for Revit

Progman has released MagiCAD 2019 for Revit and AutoCAD. The new version offers an extensive selection of new functions and improved workflows for making Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) design faster and easier. MagiCAD 2019 supports the latest Autodesk platforms Revit 2019 and AutoCAD 2019.

Among the highlights of the new release, MagiCAD 2019 for Revit introduces MagiCAD’s own Clash Detection tool on Revit platform, enabling live and on-demand detection of hard and soft clashes in your entire Revit project. In ventilation design, the new version enables air devices to be connected to the network using rectangular ducts. Further, the length of the final duct segment can now be automatically corrected in BOMs to the nearest longer standard length and equipped with a loose flange.

The new MagiCAD for Revit also offers extended standards support for domestic hot water calculations and enables sprinklers to be connected to the network using flexible pipes. For electrical design, MagiCAD 2019 for Revit offers multiple improvements, including summarisation of power loads from spaces to switchboards and calculation of wire lengths based on the Revit model.

MagiCAD 2019 for AutoCAD provides more advanced automation for Running Index based on user-defined validity settings, and at the same time introduces the upgraded Change Properties tool which enables improved property search, object filtering and editing of multiple properties simultaneously. The new option of hiding underlying objects behind dimension texts provides the user with more control over the readability of plan drawings. In electrical design, the number of devices and the longest branch can now be calculated also in low-voltage (LV) and extra-low voltage (ELV) circuits.

MagiCAD automates many complex and time-consuming design tasks, saving time in day-to-day design work, and shortening the total project run-through times on average by 30% or more.

Gladys West - Pioneer of GPS
GPS and GNSS positioning technology is such an integral part of our lives today that we rarely stop to think about where it all came from. When we do, we usually picture men in white shirts and dark glasses hunched over calculators and slide rules. In fact, one of the early pioneers behind GPS and GNSS technology was Gladys West - a black woman.
