MEPcontent BIM library integration ensures seamless design integration of over 1,250 Valsir components in MEP projects
MEPcontent, Trimble’s BIM library for MEP specialists, expands its successful collaboration with the global manufacturer of plumbing components and wastewater systems Valsir S.p.A. Together, Trimble and Valsir created a unique and innovative calculation feature for the Valsir Product Line Calculator App for Revit.
This free app is a plugin that enables MEP engineers worldwide to draw Valsir water supply and waste systems twice as fast, with up-to-date and localized Valsir content. The calculations functionality for wastewater systems is fully Revit integrated and EU compliant and reduces the chance of errors to a minimum with both design and calculation taking place in the App.
The Valsir Product Line Calculator for Revit enables MEP engineers to easily place Valsir specific 3D pipe and fitting designs into their Revit models directly from within the project environment. The content is up-to-date, light, and compact. The in-App optimizer functionality helps engineers change all fittings to their preferences with a single push of a button. In the new version, this also includes flowing tees and bends. The integrated in-App content library, accessed via the MEPcontent browser, allows users to find additional, specific Valsir content for their projects, from inside the project environment.
5 product lines and 40 Valsir product groups
Content from Valsir® Triplus®, Valsir® Silere®, Valsir® PP3/PP, Valsir® Blackfire® and Valsir® HDPE product lines is included in the new calculations plugin.
Free to use in Revit
