Why solidworks do not work on MEP works, I like solidworks and prefered it instead of all Autodesk applications but please pleaaase try to work on MEP works
I'm not sure what MEP works is. Do you have a link? I did a little bit of Googleing and didn't find anything....
My guess is Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing. I think he's asking for SW to work on creating MEP software called "MEP Works", not asking for SW to function in conjunction with some existing stuff.
Exactly as Mr. Josh Bradly prefers to clarify but creating a design, shop drawings and BOM of component quantities /please check the attached file that may help, MEP works can be divided into the following :-
- Mechanical works " HVAC SYSTEMS which may be considered as air conditioning systems & FIRE FIGHTING SYSTEMS which can divided into water systems, co2, FM200, fire extinguisher, ..... etc ".
- Electrical systems.
- Plumbing systems .
Many of my friends and surroundings are also there wanna ask the same question that we use SW from more than 8 years and we ask you for support in this part and we are all confident that you are able to improve and provide in the next version, God willing

They do have this, but it is not called MEP. It is a premium license called Routing. Plumbing and Electrical routing are separate products. HVAC can be kludged into Plumbing Routing, but it works much better as either Weldments or Sheet Metal, in my limited experience of designing and integrating all three into a large-assembly delivered building or container.
I do not use Electrical Routing because all of our products are 1-off custom jobs. Also, Conduit design does not fit nicely into Plumbing routing because of the variations of port placements in elbows. That is, Pipe routing seeks one elbow to use, but in Conduit there are at least 3. Similarly, Pipe Routing seeks one Tee to use, but there are also two or three varieties of Tee.
The offerings could be improved, yes, but they are not absent.
Thanks my bro, i will check the ROUTING category but as u said if it OK we awaiting much more improvements like sprinkler distribution, clean agent systems,..... etc.
You can add routing definition features to any component you want. At least 60% of the Routing components that I use are outside of the downloadable SWx Content packages. It requires attentive and detailed customization, but allows a very broad applicable flexibility, tailored to your specific industry by your efforts.
Two lacking features I know of: something like automatic sizing from computed friction loss, or cut list optimization to purchase least full lengths of pipe. This separates real design a little bit from associated engineering or procurement processes.
It does place components quickly in subassemblies with very few mates, and generates the interconnecting pipe bodies. It even handles insulation, clamps, and clevis hangers if the right customizations are applied. It is particularly the lack of mates which provides enhanced large assembly performance.
