Tyco Mechanical Products has released its new Grinnell Mechanical Suite for Revit, an add-on to the standard Autodesk Revit software. It is described as treating pipe like pipe, accurately drawing grooved piping systems while using Grinnell grooved products, which standard Revit software does not include. Robust tool sets increase productivity as users can perform key pipe design functions within a virtual, smart model.

Grinnell pipe types, valves and accessories can be loaded with one click. Users can select from various pipe standards and coupling types for a more realistic design and a more accurate bill of materials (BOM).The software can provide LOD (level of detail) 500 fabrication level content, with couplings gapped for particular/specified pipe lengths.

The Grinnell Mechanical Suite for Revit improves the effectiveness and efficiency of Revit 2016 and 2017 when designing grooved piping systems, and its forward compatibility can support updates as future versions become available.
