What’s in the Autodesk AEC Collection for MEP users

By Anna Liza Montenegro | BIM

The Autodesk Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Collection give you access to a set of integrated tools — including Revit — that equip you to meet any project challenge – now and in the future.  Check the full list of products and services included in an AEC Collection subscription.

MEP engineers and detailers using Revit may wonder what’s in it for them:  the AEC Collection is Revit made better.

Build on the benefits of Revit by using a variety of design and analysis tools to conceive, model, optimize, and coordinate designs with AEC professionals across multiple disciplines, and throughout the lifecycle of a project.


Using Revit, you can work in any view that you like. And any design change that you make, such as adding additional air terminals, will automatically update all impacted parts of your model, including plan, 3D views, and schedules.


You can also create LOD 400 fabrication-ready detail models using Revit. Review multiple options and layout detailed MEP fabrication building services for estimation, fabrication, and installation.


Getting Revit as part of the AEC Collection gives you the tools to more effectively coordinate with colleagues across the extended design team.


  • HVAC design and documentation
    Design complex duct and pipe systems to express intent, and model duct and pipe systems with mechanical design content.
  • Electrical design and documentation
    Design, model, and document electrical systems. Keep track of electrical loads throughout the distribution system.
  • Plumbing design and documentation
    Create sanitary plumbing systems with sloped piping and layout piping systems to design and document intent.
  • MEP fabrication detailing
    Create fabrication-ready models in Revit. You can model and coordinate MEP LOD 400 components.
  • Fabrication service conversion
    Use the Design to Fabrication tool to convert design-level model elements to construction level-of-detail elements.
  • Fabrication documentation
    Document model layout more effectively. Document, schedule, and tag fabrication elements.
  • With Navisworks Manage, you can aggregate designs in different file formats into a single model to resolve complex scheduling issues and costly clashes before construction begin – saving you time and money.
  • With the Autodesk Insight integration, Revit lets you optimize building performance with centralized access to performance data and advanced analysis engines.


Take a look at how it’s easier for MEP design professionals to move from conceptual design to multi-discipline coordination by giving you access to a set of powerful tools that aid in the development of every aspect of your designs.
