The CADmep toolbar contains the primary editing and item manipulation tools for CADmep. For information on how to use the toolbar, such as initiating commands, docking, moving, and displaying the individual flyout menus, see Using the CADmep Toolbar. For information on how to use the commands available on the toolbar, see each of the topics in this section. The Item Properties dialog displays a variety of settings associated with an item. The dialog is organized into a variety of tabs. The tabs that display depend on the options that have been configured, as well as the Fabrication product that is being used to display the item properties. Using Fabrication Profiles for each project is a great way to maintain the Fabrication database without the need for project-specific groups within the database. Utilizing Profiles will help maintain a clean database to eliminate temporary database entries. If you plan to use Fabrication Parts in Revit software, this is a must-see.
