The MEP (Mechanical/Electrical/Plumbing) Modeler was a new extension to ArchiCAD® 13. Architectural practices and architectural departments of A/E firms using ArchiCAD can use MEP Modeler to create, edit or import 3D MEP networks (ductwork, piping and cable trays) and coordinate them with the ArchiCAD Virtual Building™.

ArchiCAD’s extensive export capabilities enable designers to output files in different modeling formats including the industry standard IFC 2×3 format for coordination using external applications.
The ability to visualize MEP systems in the complete building environment improves communication between architects, engineers and contractors. Visualization can be done within ArchiCAD using color codes for the various mechanical systems in combination with wireframe representation of the architectural structures. ArchiCAD’s powerful rendering capabilities can be used to create photo-realistic visualizations of systems for the different trades.
