MEP Building Systems for ACAD 2007-2014

The MEP Building System contains all of the building systems in a single system as indicated in the menu. When loaded into ACAD, all CAE-Link building design systems are available for use. The system includes the following:

Layer Utilities
DwgTab Manager
Noting Utilities

Plumbing Isometrics

The MEP drop-down menu provides the means of navigation to each of these systems. Once in a system, all of the features contained within the system is available for use. Noting is unique to each system because Noting has it's own layer scheme for each discipline.

To see the features contained in each system, navigate from the home page to each system. When complete, download only MEP to install all systems.

  4. If you saved the file, go the the file location and double click on the file. The EXE is a standard installation program which is very quick and compact.

Once the code is accepted, continue and respond to the installation wizard questions. If no code is entered, installation will be discontinued.
  6. Start ACAD and select "Tools/Load Application..." from the menu. For ease of future loading, be sure to check "Add to History" and select the History List tab. Now, find and double click the file "c:\program files\caelink\load_MEP.lsp" and select Close.
  7. The system will load and the MEP Utilities will be available for use.

NOTE: If you have been using the Drawing Manager (Tabs), insure you have only one drawing open prior to performing the installation. If more than one drawing is loaded, the system will prompt of an error condition and provide corrective instructions. When the error occurs, the system will stop loading. When this occurs, close ACAD and re-start it. This will allow the new system to properly install in all open drawings.

If you encounter any problems with installation or using the system please email your problem or concerns to
