Fabrication CAMduct is ductwork fabrication software that uses comprehensive libraries of 3D parametric fixtures and fittings and production management features to help you meet manufacturing requirements and more efficiently produce sheet metal components.


Duct fabrication software for HVAC manufacturing

Fabrication CAMduct™ is ductwork fabrication software that uses comprehensive libraries of 3D parametric fixtures and fittings and production management features to help you meet manufacturing requirements and more efficiently produce sheet metal components.

  • API New
    The new Fabrication API gives read and write access to common job and job item properties.
  • Revit integration
    Build and edit content and services in Fabrication CAMduct and use them to create fabrication-ready models inside Revit building design software. Create your Building Information Model (BIM) in Revit, export as a .MAJ file, and bring the sheet metal components into Fabrication CAMduct for manufacturing.
  • Custom NC New
    The custom post processor configures NC data for your specific controller. Create a new post processor to meet the demands of your fabrication shop equipment.
  • Shared content libraries and databases
    Fabrication CADmep, Fabrication ESTmep, Fabrication CAMduct, and Revit can share the same libraries of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) content, as well as database settings and structure. Design, estimate, detail, coordinate, fabricate, and manufacture sheet metal without conversion or remodelling.
  • Sheet metal component library
    Access a large library of 3D parametric rectangular, round, and oval ductwork components with their associated developments. Component libraries are available in metric or imperial dimensions, and include elements such as connectors, seams, and notches. You can control the requirements of each manufactured component and base them on specifications such as DW144 and SMACNA.
  • Simple graphical interface
    An easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) supports easy job entry for both novice and experienced software users.


Sheet metal and linear nesting

Fabrication CAMduct offers advanced algorithms for more precise nesting and better material utilization. Desktop or in the cloud, this feature automatically attempts to find the best fit for all job items to reduce material waste. Or, opt to manually position components on sheets based on your predetermined settings.
Linear nesting enables a better understanding of procurement requirements by helping you more accurately see quantities for pipework, spiral ducts, electrical containments, and other ancillary items.

  • NC writing and machine support
    Post processors are built in to write NC for a variety of controller manufacturer machine types to help you control your production line, or create your own using the custom NC feature.
    Send the nested files directly to machines used in the manufacture and production of ductwork and sheet metal components, including burning tables (plasma, laser, or oxy-fuel), coil lines, and insulation cutters (water jet, router, and tangential knife).
  • Advanced job costing tools
    Conduct base level job costing based on a variety of project factors to better understand your bottom line. For more detailed estimating and costing you can link directly to Fabrication ESTmep through shared libraries and databases.
  • Fabrication CAMduct enables you to cost jobs based on:
    – Materials
    – Fabrication time
    – Site installation time
    – Multiple labor rates for different skills
    – Number of workers
    – Site-specific difficulty
