Draft, design, and document MEP building systems more efficiently with tools that help you draft more quickly, visualize your design in 3D, avoid clashes with interference detection tools, and produce more accurate documentation. Autodesk AutoCAD MEP 2014 software’s new Productivity and Usability tools help you: • Clean up drawings and move unused layers more efficiently by creating a layer zero with a single click. • Easily edit your components as your design changes with the new block swap tool that assigns a different definition to block without re-creating the block. • Add existing systems and styles to your drawing more quickly with the newly extended command line search feature, which now includes MEP system names and selected styles. • Enjoy more efficient and intuitive navigation with an enhanced Content Builder that can be opened with a right-click option directly to the selected object. • Save time and recover data faster if a file gets corrupted with the new project file backup feature, which provides a backup copy of the up-to-date Project Information file that can be restored.
New Drafting and Documentation tools help you: • Control the way architectural and MEP systems are displayed on construction documents with new Display Order by Layer capabilities that allow you to set an order for layers in a list, and apply the display order for objects on each layer. • Experience better documentation with new annotation and unit scaling tools that change object tags and texts along with drawing units. • Comply with NCS 5.0 more easily with a new layer standard and layer key styles that generate the correct names—without modifying layer names manually. • Complete quantity takeoff calculations more easily with new functions that automatically attach property set definitions to architectural objects.
