Fittings are placed based on the relationship between the points that are touched with either the digitizer or mouse. Extremely fast because there is no need to take off each individual fitting.
AutoBid Mechanical ships with pre-built assemblies that help speed up the takeoff process on repetitive items such as connection hook-ups or bathrooms. AutoBid's assemblies can contain multiple systems within the same assembly. So, you only have to takeoff one assembly – but material and labor costs will still be allocated to the correct system.
Allows for quick repetition of lines in a takeoff, saving time and effort.
Copy in OSV
Simply box-in an area to copy from one part of the drawing to another – all takeoff is repeated, including the visual representation.
Users don't worry about what material or item they are taking off, they just take off "duct" and the specs are applied to that item to determine exactly what it is. This allows for easy changes after takeoff.
Contractors save time and money by generating a new price for round ductwork without having to redline a drawing and repeat the takeoff.
Quick Elevation Change
Saves time – one mouse click will generate up to 3 items; today, doing this same task requires 4 mouse clicks. In addition, Quick Elevation change is smart. If the elevation adjustment is less than or equal to the width of the ductwork, you'll only get an offset. If it is greater than this, it will generate two elbows.
