ClearEdge3D Launches EdgeWise MEP for Autodesk Revit

Automated Feature Extraction of pipes now available for Revit—promises substantial workflow savings of up to 85%

Herndon, Virginia — September 5, 2012 — ClearEdge3D announced today the release of its latest product, EdgeWise MEP™ for Autodesk® Revit®. For the first time, users can bring extracted pipes, conduit and other cylindrical mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) elements directly into Revit. ClearEdge3D’s new MEP solution leverages the powerful feature extraction technology of EdgeWise to automatically extract pipe solids from laser scan point clouds.  These pipe solids can be automatically connected into pipe runs, annotated within EdgeWise MEP, and then brought directly into Revit as fully functional Revit pipe objects. All intelligence extracted by EdgeWise, such as diameter, length, elbow bend radius and more, is also transferred into Revit.

Beta testers of EdgeWise MEP for Revit reported modeling time savings of up to 85 percent over their previous workflows. “EdgeWise MEP for Revit greatly enhances the field-to-finish workflow.  It’s the innovation our BIM customers have been asking for,” said Chris Scotton, ClearEdge3D’s President and CEO. “Now users can combine the speed of EdgeWise Automated Feature Extraction with the power of Revit to produce Revit deliverables much faster than ever before.”

Working closely with the Autodesk Revit MEP product management team and a group of highly experienced Revit users, ClearEdge3D developed EdgeWise MEP for Revit to dramatically speed the process of modeling MEP as-builts.  “Modeling MEP for BIM has traditionally been a very tedious process,” Scotton continued. “EdgeWise MEP for Revit takes much of the manual modeling out of the workflow and instantly delivers the data straight into Revit as pipe objects, thus reducing  a project’s cost and schedule.  While the current release focuses on cylinder extraction, future releases will be able to automatically extract square ducting, cable trays and other planar objects.”

Kelly Cone, Innovations Director at Beck Architecture, recently tested the beta release.  “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.” Another beta tester, Devon Kelley at Precision Point, Inc. recently completed a hospital MEP project using the new software. “I am beyond impressed.  I was able to simply highlight all the pipe objects and click the “convert to pipes” button. Revit automatically recognized the pipe size which was incredible. So far it has exceeded my expectations. “
