Gatic provides BIM compliance with MicroDrainage software

Slotdrain channel drainage now available through MicroDrainage software

  • 21 Apr 2016

Gatic Civil Drainage can now provide a full BIM Level 2 compliant offering thanks to the addition of its Slotdrain channel drainage to the most recent update of XP Solutions’ MicroDrainage software.

MicroDrainage is a calculation tool for civil engineers working on surface water and external drainage, capable of creating detailed designs of fully integrated storm water and foul water drainage systems.

MicroDrainage features a user-friendly interface and an auto-design and editing facility and is capable of interaction with third party CAD software.

The software will now include a Gatic Slotdrain parts list that is available in Network and within AutoCAD Civil 3D through the DrawNet(CAD) interface. The drainage design generated through MicroDrainage will be BIM compliant.

Gatic is aiming for its lightweight concrete channel Filcoten to be added within the next update.
