Go All-Digital

Supporting the global environment we supply all software as digital downloads only. How can you participate?

We all can be part of the solution. Digital downloads are the "green" answer to demanding fewer resources for your computer's needs. What you get is software with an environmental footprint of zero while still staying up-to-date.

Digital downloads are one part of the larger trend in making our lives - both professional and personal - cleaner, more efficient, and better. Continue reading to see what else you can do to improve your green computing.

Limit screen-saver use. A screen saver does not save energy. In fact, more often than not, a screen saver not only will draw power for the monitor, but also will keep the CPU from shutting down. Instead, set your computer to turn off the monitor first, then go into standby mode after a longer period of inactivity.

Disconnect your Virtual Private Network (VPN) when not actively using your corporate network. Being connected may limit your system's ability to enter standby mode.

Many popular computer games and other third party software packages that run in the background will not allow the computer to go to sleep - even if they are paused or the active window is minimized.

Some web sites or pages that have active banners and or animated advertisements will not allow the computer to sleep on its own and must be closed, or the computer put manually into a sleep state.

Enabled power management to place your monitor, hard drives and computer into a low-power "sleep" mode after a period of inactivity.

Monitor/display sleep: Turn off after 15 minutes or less

Turn off hard drives/hard disk sleep: 15 minutes or less

System standby/sleep: After 30 minutes or less

Advanced users may wish to establish multiple power schemes to address different usage models. For example, you can create a power scheme for playing music CDs that shuts off your hard drive and monitor immediately, but never puts your system into standby mode.

To further reduce power consumption, turn off computing and peripheral devices that are not being used or being used for an extended period of time such as overnight.

Plug all your electronics into one surge protector, so you can easily switch them all off when you leave the room or go to sleep. Most power supplies (such as your cell phone charger) continue to draw power and generate heat even when not attached to a device.

AutoCAD® MEP software helps you draft, design, and document building systems. Create more accurate designs within a familiar AutoCAD-based environment. Increase productivity with automated drafting tasks, manufacturers’ parts, and interference detection.

Collaboration

AutoCAD and AutoCAD Architecture support Work on flat 2D AutoCAD floor plans or AutoCAD Architecture geometric model architectural floor plans with AutoCAD MEP software. Use referenced architectural floor plans to design, tag, annotate, and create construction documentation of MEP system design.
Automatic space and zone calculation Assign engineering spaces from existing 2D architectural floor plans or AutoCAD Architecture geometric designs. Calculate room measurements automatically, including square footage, meters, and volumes per area. Use space and zone information when exporting to gbXML for import into Green Building Studio web-based energy analysis service or third-party analysis programs.
IFC data support Create, manage, and share MEP CAD data with others in the design process with Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) data. IFC export recognizes MEP objects from within AutoCAD MEP and exports them, along with MEP systems and their connectivity, to corresponding IFC Building Services entities and types.
Web-based help and learning tools Use the Autodesk Knowledge Network to access a community filled with pertinent learning information. Get access to integrated web-based help content, tips and tricks, and aggregated content to help support your continued learning.

Constuction and content

Revision cloud Specify the default type of revision cloud: Freehand, Polygonal, Rectangular, or Object. The Annotation Scale automatically scales the length of the revision cloud arc. This results in a consistent appearance in views with different scales.
Section enhancements New enhancements help improve the way you work. You can now:

• Refresh all sections in your drawing with a single click, and automatically update a selection set when objects are added.
• Select the rise and fall of symbols in sections for duct and pipes when any portion of the object is within the section volume.
• Create new section lines and generate section results with a single command.
Enhanced documentation Create 3D models in AutoCAD MEP software and convert them to 2D for documentation needs. Improvements in the command line include the ability to auto-complete and differentiate commands and system variables. A wide palette of fonts and colors helps you create better-looking documentation. Improve drafting and modeling productivity with enhanced associative arrays.
Integrated content search Use AutoCAD Content Explorer to quickly search for design files, objects, and content within AutoCAD MEP software. Easily search local and network drives for files containing content and objects to use within the design environment. Content search allows for more consistent company and industry standards, as well as use of real-world content.
AutoCAD block and symbol conversion Individually convert or batch-convert single or multiple AutoCAD blocks, MvBlocks, or MvParts to a device or schematic symbol. Extrude standard 2D blocks to create a 3D solid, and then add connectors to create AutoCAD MEP content for your MEP designs. In addition, you can convert AutoCAD blocks to orthographic symbols, as well as isometric symbols to facilitate your schematic design documentation.
Drawing management Manage project drawings more easily by creating coordinated views based on MEP design parameters. MEP design team members can access a centralized project directory of the most current documents, from project templates to sections and elevations.
Pipe content and routing preferences Create more realistic pipe designs. Use routing preferences inside the application with sloped piping and male x female routing. Take advantage of specific piping content created for AutoCAD MEP.

Productivity and usability

Style Browser Navigate, search, and add object styles more efficiently. Dynamic search and a variety of sources and libraries help speed your work. Import preferred styles and add objects of a selected style to the current drawing. Customize the appearance of previews in the Style Browser.
Property visibility override Now you can override visibility and order settings under Property Set Definitions in the Style Manager. After you've adjusted these settings to your needs, you can disable the properties to prevent them from being changed.
Elbow duct fitting Choose the type of elbow that best fits your design when the sizes on both sides of the duct are equal. You can select Use Reducing Elbow, Use Straight Elbow and Reducer, or the new Use Reducing Elbow If Needed setting.

Status bar The Application status bar now includes the Display Configuration and Cut Plane tools. The status bar wraps onto 2 lines so that you can see all the selected controls. The Drawing status bar has been removed.
Automated property set definitions You can automatically attach property set definitions to architectural objects to complete quantity takeoff calculations. Attach new, modified, or existing property set definitions to newly created objects and their styles, as well as to existing objects.
Annotation and unit scaling When you change drawing units, object tags, text, and other annotation-scaled objects are properly modified. You have the option to rescale model and paper space objects, to rescale only model space objects, or not to rescale any existing objects.
Display order by layer Control the way architectural and MEP systems are displayed on construction documents. Set an order for layers in a list, and apply the display order for objects on each layer. Preview changes to the display order before they are applied to ensure that changes are predictable.
Block swap Easily edit your components as your design changes. Assign a different definition to block instances without re-creating the block.
Point clouds Save time and increase accuracy by using point cloud data to generate existing building conditions in MEP projects within AutoCAD MEP software. Bring 3D scans to life for renovation, retrofit, and restoration projects. Visualize the points more quickly and snap to the surface of your scanned objects directly within your modeling workspace.
UI Finder Use the Finder to easily locate frequently used commands directly from within Help content. An animated arrow points to the tool location in the user interface and in the status bar and Application menu.
