AutoCAD® MEP 2010
AutoCAD MEP 2010 software is the discipline-specific version of AutoCAD® software for
mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) designers and drafters. Sharing and collaborating
with architects and structural engineers is made easier through the familiar AutoCAD-based
environment. AutoCAD MEP’s more intuitive systems and design tools help provide greater
drafting productivity with the flexibility to make last-minute design changes more quickly and
easily. AutoCAD MEP helps to provide increased drafting productivity, better accuracy and
design coordination opportunities for MEP designers and drafters. Production of construction
documents is automated, allowing the creation of single line and double line systems in
addition to schematics.
New customizable ribbon toolbar is task-oriented with redesigned, intuitive icons.
Improved workspaces are tailored for tasks such as HVAC and piping systems in
ready-made formats, which are also highly customizable.
New application menu helps enable easier access to a list of commands such as
Open, Save, Export and Publish; also use the application menu to access recent
Gravity based designs for Sanitary Drain, Waste, Vent and Storm/Sewer drainage
systems can now be drawn more easily with the new sloped piping functionality.
Pipe routing preferences have been expanded to include parts with male and female
More Efficiently Create and Edit Drawings and Drawing Data
Leverage multiple part catalog support and use individual catalogs for different
material types, allowing for easier part selection.
Support and migrate existing customized catalogs with tools to redefine the catalog
based content in existing drawings; upgrade and add new parameters automatically.
Import manufactured building components from Autodesk® Inventor® without
undesirable loss of data.
Content builder enhancements allow users to create custom parametric parts with
male, female or a combination of both connectors based on real-world piping
Enhanced integration with Autodesk® Seek web service lets designers search a vast
library of 2D and 3D building products and publish customized designs to the service.
More Coordinated Construction Documents
New part content has been added to help produce construction documents faster.
Values in the Panel Schedule are automatically updated when regenerating a drawing.
Improved graphical display of MEP parts provides more accurate representation in
A new DWG to PDF driver offers merge control for plot colors, the ability to include
layer information and a preview of the plotted PDF.
