Design with real products from leading manufacturers

MagiCAD2

MagiCAD contains Europe’s largest database, with hundreds of thousands of products from leading international manufacturers. The products have correct dimensions and all relevant technical data. This means your calculations are accurate and the installation can be performed following your design. Contractors know they can work as planned, saving time and improving quality. New products and manufacturers are constantly introduced into the MagiCAD product model database. The 3D product models are available free of charge for both MagiCAD for AutoCAD and MagiCAD for Revit users.

Calculate while you are designing

MagiCAD3

MagiCAD provides sizing, balancing, flow route examination, different sound calculations, heat loss calculations and bill of materials (BOM) functions. Take full advantage of these functions and you will increase your productivity. When designing for example a ventilation system, you can draw everything with one duct or pipe size and then let MagiCAD do the sizing. It is fast and very efficient. Another basic function in MagiCAD is its automatic sound calculations. You get a full and detailed report on sound attenuation, sound generation and sound levels. MagiCAD also provides you with comprehensive calculations on cooling, air-conditioning and indoor climate.

MagiCAD is a 3D CAD software
MagiCAD4

MagiCAD allows you to work in both 2D and 3D. If you prefer working in 2D, MagiCAD will automatically create also a 3D model in the background. If you work in 3D, you still have all you need also for printing 2D drawings. You can have a 2D and 3D view open at the same time. Any change you make in one view is automatically updated to the other view.

Efficient collision control for MEP systems and structural design

MagiCAD5

MagiCAD’s collision control covers all electrical and HVAC systems. MagiCAD allows you to check for collisions for MEP systems and structural design directly from a reference drawing. Collision control saves time and makes cooperation among project partners easy and efficient. The risk of running into installation problems on site is minimized.

Making cross-sections is easy. Place the section marks and show the area and direction – MagiCAD creates the cross-section automatically. When you modify the plan you can update the cross-section with a couple of clicks.

Plugins for faster product selection 

MagiCAD6

Many manufacturers develop special software for calculation and product selection, particularly for more complex products and systems such as air handling units (AHUs). We constantly develop plugins that allow you to connect also this software to MagiCAD. When you have selected a product, you can import and place it in the MagiCAD model in the same way as any other intelligent MagiCAD object.

Experiences from thousands of projects in building services design

With two versions out every year, MagiCAD evolves at a steady pace to be in tune with your demands. MagiCAD is easy to learn and use, and always up-to-date with the latest design technology and functions.

MagiCAD is marketed worldwide through our regional sales offices and a strong network of international partners. Today, there are more than 15,000 licenses in use in 45 countries, including Finland, Sweden, the United Arab Emirates, India, the UK and Russia. The software offers localisation for different languages and country-specific standards, and it is used by several major contractors and design agencies in projects throughout the world. The company developing MagiCAD is Progman Oy, headquartered in Finland. Progman Oy has more than 30 years of experience in developing software for the building services industry.

Ready for BIM

MagiCAD7

When designing with MagiCAD, you have all it takes to be part of any BIM (Building Information Modelling) project.

A BIM workflow can improve quality and save money throughout the project:
• Making changes is easier
• Updates and revisions are available to all project members
• Coordination with construction is easier
• MagiCAD models allow for efficient collision control
• Production of accurate bills of materials improves cost control and installation planning
• Energy calculations are more reliable when structural design and MEP design are integrated into one model
• And you can make attractive visualisations with high-quality 3D images and animations in Navisworks and other applications.
