MEP software for designers and drafters
AutoCAD® MEP software helps you draft, design, and document building systems. Create more accurate designs within a familiar AutoCAD-based environment. Increase productivity and reduce errors with automated drafting tasks, manufacturers’ parts, and interference detection. Support mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) systems throughout the building lifecycle with reliable DWG™ files.
AutoCAD MEP features
Enhance productivity and design accuracy
View AutoCAD® MEP videos and demos. AutoCAD MEP automates drafting tasks to help mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) designers and drafters create more accurate construction documentation. Share, collaborate, and coordinate with architects, engineers, and contractors easier with reliable DWG™ technology.
Better workflow for MEP system design
View videos and images of how AutoCAD® MEP software helps teams coordinate and collaborate on architectural building systems. Decrease interferences prior to construction, save time, deliver projects faster, and reduce risk and inefficiencies.
AutoCAD and AutoCAD Architecture support
Work on flat 2D or geometric floor plans.
Automatic space and zone calculation
Calculate room measurements automatically.
IFC data support
Create, manage, and share design data.
AutoCAD 360 (formerly AutoCAD WS) mobility
View, edit, and share DWG™ drawings on the go.
Web-based help and learning tools
Enhance workflow with up-to-date extensions.
Share content, improve MEP design
View AutoCAD® MEP demo videos and images to see how you can create more accurate and consistent MEP construction documentation with 2D or 3D views. Easily search local and network drives for designs, objects, and content to use within the design environment. Manage project drawings based on design parameters and access a centralized project directory.
