Supported CAD Systems

Three CAD platforms for your flexibility

liNear offers three different platforms to work on for your planning process. As a long-standing Autodesk partner, we support AutoCAD as well as REVIT. Additionally we offer CADinside, a low-cost platform which is fully compatible with AutoCAD. You can easily change between the different platforms and still have the user-friendly liNear interface available for each option.

Autodesk AutoCAD

From scheme till 3D constructions

liNear CAD tools for AutoCAD

From the first concept to implementation planning, liNear Desktop is the drawing engine for all trades. Without long training periods, you can draw circuit schemes, pipe run schemes, floor plans, intersections and details with standardized symbol libraries, scheme generators and a high-performance set of construction aids. Further, your detail drawings become exact at the push of a button with the original liNear manufacturer libraries. You may thus generate ready-to-order materials lists throughout all trades. more

The liNear network calculations for heating, cooling, potable water, waste water, siphonic drainage, gas and air duct systems provide reliable, standardized hydraulic and sound-technical results in each planning stage. They thus represent at all times important decision aids for the subsequent planning process. Optimize your pipe arrangement or change system components and pipe materials. With a single click you can access the updated results including detailed parts lists for tendering and ordering  – hydraulically perfect and clearly documented. more

With liNear Design 3D Pipe&Power you may create 3D models you can touch. You may construct the system three-dimensionally down to the minutest detail in a realistic and functional way. To that end, a wide range of original 3D manufacturer components are at your disposal. You may check feasilbility also for confined rooms and present photorealistic results that convince your customers. What you see is what you get! more

Autodesk Revit

Next Step to BIM

Workflow instead of Workaround!

Also with Autodesk Revit we follow the same philosophy as under AutoCAD already known and established. We create a workflow and avoid the workaround with the goal to help our customers directly to highest productivity. Therefore we work directly in the model and have integrated both the design tools and all network calculations into the program without error-prone interfaces. To make Revit a true engineer tool, we offer many design, buiklding detection and control tools that combine commands in a time-saving manner and extend for HVAC and piping engineers. The handling is based on the AutoCAD tools and thus enables an easy changeover or parallel operation of our solutions.

Building analysis

Easy building detection and load calculation

  • Complete analysis of the building model
  • Capture of even complex structures such as multi walls structures
  • Takeover of zoning, rooms, etc.
  • Acceptance of temperatures incl. adjacent temperatures
  • Parameter mapping for flexible project specifications
  • Heating load calculation
  • Cooling load calculation
  • Calculation of domestic ventilation
  • Search & Show function for rooms and components

Calculations direcly in the model

Pipe and air duct network calculations

  • Standard-compliant calculations directly in the model (without annoying interfaces)
  • Heating pipe network calculation
  • Cooling pipe network calculation
  • Gas pipe networks calculation
  • Potable water network calculation
  • Waste Water network calculation
  • Roof drainage (also with pressure flow)
  • Air duct network calculation incl. sound level
  • Extensive printouts of results
  • Complete material lists
  • Visualization of the results in the model
  • Manufacturer-tested component libraries

Construction tools for Revit

Make Revit a real solution for engineers

  • Time-saving commands for faster design and capture
  • automatical pipe offset
  • Automatic T-piece connection incl. waste water and slope
  • Connecting components with variant selection
  • draft order
  • Visual zoning tool
  • Automatic view generation (3D, floor plans, ceiling plans, sections)
  • View control (by building part, floor, trade,...)
  • Component libraries of all trades
  • Revit Family Manager

Choose the liNear Suite

One solution for both platforms - liNear as a suite solution for AutoCAD and Revit

Our solutions are available for both AutoCAD and Revit. But which one do you choose? We recommend our liNear Suite for both platforms. For a small extra charge you get the solution you want for both platforms. For example, plan in the scheme in AutoCAD and use the possibilities of Revit to participate directly in the BIM process. A strong team for every application!

liNear CADinside

Powered by Autodesk technology

As an interesting alternative to widespread AutoCAD installations which allow the use of applications from different origins on an open CAD platform, we offer you a integrated CAD functionality by Autodesk with the CADinside variants of our products. This is an integrated product from one source! In case you want to use only a small part of our comprehensive CAD solutions, the variant with integrated CAD core may be the economically most reasonable solution. The solutions by liNear are in both program variants identical in terms of handling and are of course 100% compatible.
