Stabiplan Openings for MEP

From the MEPcontent website:

Take control over your MEP openings in Revit thanks to this App which facilitates an optimal cooperation with structural engineers so that you can detect and prevent clashes in BIM projects at an early stage.

You can now generate openings with increased accuracy on places where MEP elements (like ducts or pipes) are clashing with structural elements (like walls, floors or ceilings) – even when working with linked models.

Communicate in real time: simply send an opening request to the structural engineer, get a response file back and load it directly into your model to have the most up-to-date status for each opening.

Visit the full App page for pricing info OR try the App one week for free!


3 simple ways to create openings in Revit

Create openings by selecting the places where MEP elements intersect with structural elements, manually (face-based or non-hosted) or based on an interference check file. No matter your choice, the openings are created with the correct dimensions and properties based on your input.

Always have a clear overview

All relevant information regarding the openings in your project such as status, dimensions, fire rating and many more is clearly displayed, so you can monitor and manage them with maximum efficiency. Apply filters and sort columns to see, for instance, which openings still need to be added to a request or for which ones you are expecting a response. You can also create schedules and extend them with your own data.

Combine and edit openings

Let the App automatically combine your openings when they are close to each other, or choose to do this manually. You can also quickly edit the characteristics of your openings like setting a different shape or adjusting the dimensions.

Define your preferences

Define settings like default margins for MEP elements, the minimum distance between openings on the same host, and even specify if you want to use linked models for generating the openings.

Height annotations

Measure your openings’ heights and easily insert annotations in your project. You can choose if the height must be measured up to the bottom, center, or top of the opening and even specify if the annotation must be based on your project elevation or on a specified level.

Take BIM collaboration to the next level

Let the structural engineer approve or decline your opening requests using the Stabiplan Openings Manager for Structural Engineers App for Revit. Simply send an opening request to the structural engineer, get a response file back and load it directly into your model to have the most up-to-date status for each opening.

Predefined view templates

Import predefined view templates for a better control of the openings. Make use of the different filters to see, for instance, all the openings which are approved by the structural engineer in a particular view.

BIM Workflow

Workflow Stabiplan Openings for MEP

As a MEP engineer you can now very easily communicate with the structural engineer about openings, thanks to the new Stabiplan Openings for MEP App for Revit. Create opening requests, send an .xml file to the structural engineer so that they can approve or decline them, and get your document back in due time!

Give your structural engineer the right tool to efficiently respond to your requests. Tell them to download the Stabiplan Openings Manager for Structural Engineers App for Revit for free, and they will be able to easily approve or decline the opening requests and send them back to you rapidly. These two Apps for Revit are best used together. Download them both for free and reinforce your BIM toolkit!
