Today my company, ClearEdge3D, announced the first-ever software solution to bring 3D as-built models of pipes and other cylindrical MEP elements directly into Revit. The product, called EdgeWise MEP for Revit, automatically extracts pipes, elbows and other features from point clouds and exports them to Revit as fully functional pipe objects.
Kelly Cone with Beck Architecture (a regular AU speaker) and one of the early beta testers had this to say, "Edgewise MEP for Revit is a huge step forward in our market. Tasks that used to take us days to complete can now be done in a few hours."
Other beta testers have been equally effusive. Frankly, we're proud of what we've done with EdgeWise MEP for Revit--if anyone is interested in seeing a demo, go to our website at www.clearedge3d.com
