CADmep Service Validation
« on: Jun 14, 2016, 10:16:54 AM »
Autodesk Fabrication CADmep has a very good tool built in for checking models for things like duplicate items, connector mismatches, size mismatches, open ends and collisions. Check out this video on service validation to learn more.

I missed the initial roll out for Fabviewer so I am not that familiar with it.  Showed the guys at the office the find duplicates function couple of weeks ago but didn't know about all of the functions in it.

Thanks a lot Scott!

One question, in the video Scott said if you have the right blocks in the drawing, they would show up when running JOBCOLLISIONS. What do the block names need to be in the drawing? Is there documentation on this?

Hey Josh,
Right below the video is a download link to a palette that I created just for this, it has all the blocks in the download. Let me know if you have any issues, well.... related to the tool palette that is.   :)

You referenced a video in the post that you linked to that used to be on MAP's old site. That's what my joke was referring to.
