HVAC and Ducting

Ducts of any shape and type for 3D space reservation and for detailed construction data output

Key benefits

  • Route HVAC and ducts of any shape and easily modify designs
  • Specification-controlled use of materials and components
  • Online and case-based clash control with all other project objects
  • Automatically-generated duct spool documents and BOMs

How it works

CADMATIC has an HVAC and ducting module for efficient 3D modelling and extraction of drawings and lists. The designer can simply concentrate on routing ducts while the system ensures that the correct components are used every time. This has been achieved with the aid of specification-driven routing, as well as automatically generated HVAC spools and Bills of Materials (BOMs).


Specification-driven duct routing

3D designers can route oval, round or rectangular air ducts by using straight ducts made from sheets, prefabricated duct spools, and industrially-manufactured components such as access doors, fittings and transitions.

Automatically-generated documentation

Ducting designers can produce comprehensive documentation for the prefabrication and installation of individual duct spools. In addition to spool drawings, designers can generate material listings for duct spools anytime. 

Seamless document revision control

When there are changes in the duct lines of the 3D model, existing spool documents can be updated and republished, either as the same revision or as a new document revision. In automatic part numbering, it can be specified that new revisions always require generation of new part numbers.
