Automated Water Services Calculations

Systems: choose from cold water, hot water, warm water, or create your own

Parameters: choose the material, spare capacity, maximum velocity, and minimum pipe size

Peak flow calculation method: Choose from the Australian, British, German, or the U.S. methods

Plant: add hot water, storage tanks, booster pumps, or create your own

Results: pipe sizes, peak flow rates, velocities, pressure loss, and hot water return

Automated Gas Services Calculations

Systems: choose from natural or LP gas

Parameters: choose the material, spare capacity, maximum velocity, and minimum pipe size

Calculation method: the International Fuel Gas Code 2018 formula is used for pipe sizing

Appliances: specify the flow rate and minimum required pressure at t he appliance and choose to add a diversity factor

Results: pipe sizes, flow rates, and velocities to ensure the minimum inlet pressure is maintained

Automated Fire Services Calculations

Systems: choose from fire hydrant, fire hose reel, or create your own

Parameters: choose the material, spare capacity, maximum velocity, and minimum pipe size

Fire outlets: locate nodes and add the flow rates, minimum pressure and maximum pressure

Plant: add booster assemblies, storage tanks, booster pumps, or create your own

Results: pipe sizes, velocities, dynamic and static pressures

Automated Sanitary Drainage Calculations

Choose from sanitary drainage, sanitary plumbing, trade waste, grease waste, or create your own system.

Define parameters such as the material, spare capacity, sizing and grade limitations, and venting requirements.

The calculations use the AS/NZS3500.2:2018 fixture units, 2018 UPC fixture units, or the EN 12056-2:2000 discharge units.

Add pits, pumps, and inspection openings in addition to designing stacks, relief vents, and branch vents.

Results include pipe sizing, pipe grade, fall across the length of the pipe, and vent sizing.

Automatically Generated 3D Revit Model

Once you are happy with your results in H2X, export a 3D model of the valves and pipework to Revit.

Our Revit plugin will import the pipework and valves, fully sized at the correct heights. All you have to do is match up the H2X components with the corresponding system families in Revit.

 

 This saves up to 80% of the drafters time, who will just need to do coordination and annotation in Revit.

Automated Cost & Bill of Materials Export

Cost: each component has a cost assigned to it

Total cost: as you design, keep track of the overall cost​ of the system

Design options: assess different design options and instantly see the cost savings 

Variations: keep track of cost changes from evolving architectural designs

Export: a bill of materials spreadsheet split up level by level that contains the amount and/or length of each component in the design

PDF Export with Cover Sheet

QA review: review calculations with ease as results are shown on the design instead of a spreadsheet

Drafting: a clear digital markup is automatically produced for the drafter to copy

Report: append drawings and calculations that show and describe different aspects of your design

Design options: provide different design options with a full drawing set to the client with ease​

CAD: the clear drawing export can replace the need to use drawing software
