The free Ostendorf Product Line Placer App for Revit enables MEP engineers to configure and design Ostendorf pipe systems twice as fast. Work only with completely up-to-date and localized content.
Thanks to the autorouting functionality, the right fittings are automatically added to your system while drawing. Even more, you can set up your preferred solution for each kind of fitting and optimize your entire system at a click of a button. Without having to adjust every fitting separately.
Use the in-app predefined schedules and order your items directly from the material lists with a guaranteed up-to-date content.
With just a few clicks you can place Ostendorf specific pipes and fittings, directly from within your project environment. Work only with up-to-date content from Ostendorf – light and compact in use, as well as tailored to your country.
The integrated MEPcontent Browser covers a wide range of Ostendorf products, ready to use in your BIM process. Simply load or insert 3D content directly into your Revit model without leaving your project environment.
Let the App automatically place the right tees, reducers, bends, couplings, or other fittings as you draw. When adjusting a dimension (e.g. diameter) of the system, the specific properties (e.g. article number) also change with it. Always get the right Ostendorf coupling or end piece, even when working with native Revit’s Split Element or Cap Open Ends functions.
Choose what kind of solution you prefer for each kind of fitting within your pipe system; for instance, a 90° bend can be made with two 45° bends or with a single 90° bend. Set your drawing preferences for many scenarios and, with a single click, you can instantly optimize your entire system. Without having to adjust every fitting separately.
Use the in-app predefined schedules (like cutting lists and pipe fittings) to list your drawn articles with all related data such as article numbers, GTIN, dimensions, and many more. Having the latest product data available, you can order your articles directly from within Revit.
Visualize the pipe socket of the Ostendorf pipes in Revit by simply checking the Show pipe socket option, located at the constraints tab of the instance parameters of the fitting.
