Innovaya Composers for AutoCAD Architecture/MEP - Now Supporting 2011!
By taking your multiple design files into a single model, Innovaya Composers for AutoCAD Architecture and MEP help your project teams in communication, coordination, and automating and enhancing the process of quantity takeoff, cost estimating and schedulling.

Innovaya Composers for AutoCAD Architecture and MEP are add-on programs for AutoCAD Architecture (previously named Autodesk Architectural Desktop or ADT) or AutoCAD MEP (previously named Autodesk Building Systems or ABS). It exports design element information into Innovaya project model in the format of an .INV file, which can be read by all Innovaya visual applications for visualization, communication, quantity takeoff, cost estimating, construction simulating, and so on.

Support for User-defined Units
When an .INV file is created in Innovaya Composer for AutoCAD Architecture or MEP, you can define desired object unit types for linear units, area units, and volume units. This is a useful feature to better support the primary function of the INV model to be used in the target application. For example, regardless what units are defined in the Revit model by the designers, as an estimator, you might want the linear units for all of the objects to be in foot because you have used the foot unit in most of the linear variables in your Timberline database. The composer will then automatically convert all objects units according to your settings when the Revit model is converted into the INV file.

Merge of Multiple Project Models
An .INV file is a true BIM because it can contains multiple models created by different designers for different disciplines. Whether you use AutoCAD Architecture, AutoCAD MEP, Autodesk Revit Architecture, Revit Structure, Revit MEP, or even other 3D design applications, Innovaya Composers are able to merge all these designs into one model in the INV format. When loaded into one of the Innovaya visual applications, the multiple designs can be seen and used as one single project model.

Support for Change Management
Innovaya Composer for AutoCAD Architecture or MEP can synchronize the design changes seamlessly. Once an INV file has been created, the original design files may need to change resulting new design files. By merging the INV file with the new ADT files, the composer automatically imports all of the new objects and synchronizes all the changed or deleted objects with the original ones. The change status of all of the objects in the new INV model will be marked appropriately, which can be visualized in Innovaya visual applications in different color codes.
