Enhance Spooling Efficiency with EVOLVE
Written By Marina Lucier

Creating models for spooling can be a real pain in the neck. It's a complex challenge, and many MEP firms struggle with it. The models need to be accurate, and they need to include intricate details and fabrication requirements for each building component. If the data in the BIM model is not accurate, ithe final results will be poor. Trash going in, is trash coming out!

So, yeah, it's a tough job. Lucky for you, the Revit add-in EVOLVE make spooling simple! EVOLVE is the solution for accurate spooling designs in Revit! EVOLVE provides automated features that help save time spent designing. Here's more on how EVOLVE helps with spooling:

Accurate 3D Representation: EVOLVE creates a comprehensive 3D model of the entire building or infrastructure project, including MEP systems. This detailed model ensures that the spooled components precisely match the design intent, reducing rework and clashes during installation.

Data Integration: EVOLVE allows the integration of various data into the model, such as material specifications, manufacturer details, dimensions, and more. This information can be utilized in spooling to create precise fabrication and installation instructions, ensuring that the right materials are used in the right quantities.

Clash Detection: Before prefabrication EVOLVE can perform clash detection, identifying potential clashes or conflicts between different MEP components or with other building elements. Addressing these issues early in the design phase minimizes problems during fabrication and installation.

Workflow Optimization: EVOLVE lets Revit users quickly select elements, assign a spool designation, and then produce Prefab sheets that include 3D views, plan & elevations, and produce a bill of materials in a matter of minutes. Automating parts of your spooling workflows saves time and resources!

Collaboration and Communication: EVOLVE in Revit facilitates better collaboration among various stakeholders, including architects, engineers, contractors, and fabricators. Everyone involved can access the same model, making it easier to coordinate efforts and ensure everyone is working with the most up-to-date information.

Cost and Time Savings: By optimizing the spooling process, EVOLVE can lead to significant cost and time savings. Prefabrication of MEP components based on accurate BIM data can reduce on-site labor and material waste, leading to a more efficient construction process.

EVOLVE presents the ultimate solution for precise spooling designs in Revit! With its advanced automation features, EVOLVE significantly reduces the time spent on designing. Spend less time on spooling, and more time executing - get a demo today!
