Trimble just released the most updated version of its flagship product alias Trimble MEPdesigner for SketchUp 2.0. It is an exclusive extension to SketchUp Pro that provides huge benefits to mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) contractors and engineers by enhancing their productivity as well as simplifying the usages with various 3D CAD and BIM applications.
The performance of this new version is greatly enhanced with the inclusion of a superior electrical construction materials catalog and extended component patterns together with a bendable electrical conduit feature. These consist of EMT, IMC, PVC and RMC, which empower contractors and engineers to model electrical systems in a perfect manner for any construction projects.
The design progression is also streamlined with a new bendable conduit feature. With this improved feature, the users can now get rid of the issue for applying a series of components to provide a bend in the conduit. It will save significant time and generate perfect 3D model and bill of materials (BOM).
The SketchUp users will be able to download unlimited user generated models from 3D Warehouse. To support the release of version2.0, Trimble has circulated 3D models of electrical components along with panelboards, lighting panels and transformers which can be downloaded here.
Trimble is going to organize a series of workshops by offering practical trainings with Trimble MEPdesigner forSketchUp and these training programs will be very useful for electrical contractors. Besides, the contractors can participate in the webinar “Getting Started with 3D Modeling” that will be held on August 11, 2015.
