Autodesk Revit MEP 2013

Autodesk Revit MEP 2013Autodesk® Revit® software provides mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) engineers with the tools to design even the most complex building systems. Revit supports Building Information Modeling (BIM), helping you drive accurate design, analysis, and documentation of more efficient building systems from concept through to construction. Use information-rich models to support building systems design throughout the building lifecycle.

There are 2 products available for MEP engineering design:

  • Autodesk Revit 2013, a comprehensive solution containing the functionality of Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2013, Autodesk® Revit® MEP 2013, and Autodesk® Revit® Structure 2013 software, available in the Autodesk® Building Design Suite Premium and Ultimate editions.
  • Autodesk Revit MEP 2013, a standalone application
