My company just purchased a new program, and I need HELP!. I was using the 30 day free trial of MEP 2013 and was just getting to know it and I asked them to purchase that particular program. I am not sure what they purchased, (I am working on site and the office went ahead and purchased and installed program). They sent computer out to me with Autocad 2013 (I believe they mentioned "suite" to me) it has Autodesk design Review

                                                                                                Autodesk download manager

                                                                                                Inventor fusion 2013

                                                                                                Autocad 2013

                                                                                                Autodesk showcase

                                                                                                Navis Freedom/Manage

                                                                                                Revit 2013

                                                                                                Revit viewer

I do not even know these programs but regardless I went into the autocad 2013 to start drawing and I do not even see how to start drwg pipe. There is no pipe palette to even draw from. Am I missing something or did they purchase the wrong product?


please hurry, not getting any work done until I figure this out....Thank you
