MEP(3D) Overview
What is MEP(3D)?


MEP is an industry acronym that stands for Mechanical / Electrical / Plumbing. To industry insiders and detailers, MEP also denotes the use of 3D CAD software, 3D processes and 3D file formats rather than the more traditional 2D CAD formats. In similar fashion to how 2D CAD processes have all but replaced the drawing board drafting processes of the past, MEP software and processing for shop and coordination drawings is quickly moving towards 3D formats. These programs have many new automated features that result in much more accuracy and efficiency for shop drawings and coordination services. JPK uses PractiCAD® as a third party MEP software program that runs on top of an Autocad® software platform. There are other MEP software packages that provide MEP functionality. PractiCAD® is simply the choice for JPK. As such, the automated features of PractiCAD® as highlighted in the video provide an overview of how MEP software has automated many processes that have traditionally been manual processes in standard 2D software packages.
