MCS Software for Peace

Always “Real” advice and assistance in a “Virtual” context

MCS Software: the ideal partner for the development of application software in an Autodesk environment focused on BIM and the dynamic calculation of Revit, Civil 3D and AutoCAD projects directly in PriMus by ACCA Software or alternatively with the Microsoft Office suite

MCS Software,

since its inception, it has always been dedicated to the development of software aimed at solving specific customer problems exclusively in the Autodesk graphics sector.

The main specialization of MCS is related to the field of technical drawing CAD e BIM and in the context of programming, MCS has specialized in the development of routines or customizations related to CAD, BIM technologies and methodologies in Revit and computer graphics and is available in evaluating with customers any type of project that involves the development of ad hoc software in Autodesk graphics

Since 1993 MCS has been ADN – Autodesk Developer Network certified

Thanks to its specific skills related to the world of CAD design and computer graphics, MCS Software has entered into collaboration agreements for the development of applications with the world’s largest manufacturer of CAD software: Autodesk and with the largest Italian manufacturer of construction software. and the calculation: ACCA Software. These collaborations allowed MCS to develop the “ArchVISION RP, CP and AP” and “AbaCus” applications

From October 2020 the MCS product portfolio grows with the arrival of “ArchVISION OFFICE for REVIT” the specific application for dynamic and direct calculation in Revit and operationally identical to ArchVISION RP but interoperable exclusively with the Microsoft Office suite (Excel and Word) and in 2021 MCS Software releases ArchVISION OFFICE for Civil 3D deriving from ArchVISION CP

Over the years MCS Software has developed further experience in software development in Autodesk AutoCAD Map 3D by creating a specific application operating in the Aqueducts (Water and sewage networks) field called ArIeTe x GIS and from it the ArIeTe x BIM application available for Revit was born.

Who we are

MCS started its business in 1993 with the first consultancies mainly focused on helping the first pioneers of the nascent CAD era in the delicate initial phase of startup and approach to AutoCAD we ‘worked’ with AutoCAD 12 DOS, version that had a great success), at that time and over a few years most of the drafting machines were abandoned passing and using, for many forcibly and with many prejudices and perplexities, very slow personal computers and the first CAD poor in functions, not very performing, definitely ‘cumbersome and difficult’ to use.

It was a period without network, without cell phones and remote assistance and obviously no Wi-Fi, sometimes it could happen to travel kilometers to ‘rescue’ a friend, an acquaintance or a customer stuck in the then really ‘critical’ phase of the press, at the beginning. real critical point of the entire CAD process, the first pen plotters really make you smile when compared with today’s technologies..

MCS Software is increasingly specializing in training, consulting and development of the first applications in the AutoLISP language and at the end of the 90s it acquires the Autodesk ADN (Autodesk Developer Network) certification issued to specialized companies focused on the development of Autodesk applications.

In 2000 MCS Software grows and evolves into S.r.l. realizing some commercial applications and available in the price list, the most important had the name of ‘EDIL 1’ and was soon marketed by the ArTeN company of Ferrara and distributed by the former ‘Channel’ then Milanese IT distributor, it was the 2000s, soon MCS activated a new office in Turin, with an increase in installed licenses, extended to the whole national territory and with the expansion of the range of products that has seen in 2001 the release of four distinct CAD proposals, called ArchVISION and available in the most varied configurations and solutions, aimed at the AEC world and compatible with AutoCAD, AutoCAD Lt, Architectural Desktop and Revit.

In that period and for some years the company TechData, which has always been the Italian distributor of Autodesk products, distributed the “Tools ADT of MCS Software” in bundle with Architectural Desktop, which represented a localization and specialization of the product with specific functions for the needs of professionals Italians, such as quotations, aero illuminating ratios, calculations, etc., etc., all functions of which the Autodesk product conceived abroad was ‘orphan’

Starting in autumn 2004 MCS Software started a in-depth collaboration with ACCA Software S.p.a., the Italian leader in building software, which has evolved into a programmatic agreement linking the two companies in a lasting way; the first fruit of this agreement is what the whole technical world has been waiting for for some time, It was 2004 and a program was finally available that could truly integrate design and computation through the synergy of two industry leaders such as AutoCAD, AutoCAD Architecture and / or Revit Architecture and the Italian leader in computation: PriMus. All the products of the “ArchVISION” range have evolved and were made available until 2012 in the software series proposed by ACCA Software S.p.a. under the name of Rapidus. (AutoRapidus, ReviRapidus, ArchiRapidus e TecniRapidus)

MCS Software makes the ArchVISION RP product (formerly ReviRapidus) available again, thus ensuring continuity of development, assistance and integration between the two products over the years. (Revit e PriMus)

In the name of continuity and reliability, ArchVISION RP has now reached release 19

The range of products grows and at the end of 2015 MCS Software makes available AbaCus, a solution dedicated to the ‘conversion’ of Abachi in Autodesk Revit directly in ACCA Software’s PriMus.

In summer 2017 MCS created and activated a new web portal dedicated to its BIM applications and available at: https://bim.mcs-software.it

On 12 October 2017 MCS Software releases ArIeTe (Computer and Technical Archives)a third product always specific for the BIM application context created to manage the archiving of attachments in Revit projects on a database and compatible with any IFC viewer.

On 19 and 20 October MCS Software participates in the DIGITAL BIM Italia event in Bologna, presenting itself to customers with its own exhibition stand.

From May 2018 MCS Software releases ArchVISION RP 19 a real new version of the product which in the sign of continuity represents a new ‘Plug-in of reference in the context of BIM computing in Italy’.

On the company website, also in May 2018, a module dedicated to remote assistance is made available in order to better assist its customers.

In Jne 2018MCS Software becomes member and partner of ASSOBIM

On 10 October ArchVISION RP 19.1and ArchVISION RP 19.1 (Pro) are released, a specific extension for computational needs organized on multilevel WBS structures.

OnOctober 18th MCS participates in Digital BIM Italy in collaboration with ASSOBIM

On November 20 ArchVISION RP 19.2 and the new ArchVISION RP 19.2 (MEP) are released, a further extension and specialization of the software that extends its potential in the field of ‘Systems and Plants’ by improving the computation of MEP elements allowing filtered processing by diameters and sections of the computed elements.

In March 2019 MCS participates in Made Expo – Milan at the ASSOBIM area

In May 2019 MCS Software announces and makes available two new ‘variants’ of ArchVISION RP, extending its modus operandi also with Civil 3D giving life to the ArchVISION CP application (Civil 3D – PriMus) and by means of the new ArchVISION AP (AutoCAD – PriMus) to AutoCAD users

Also in May, MCS makes all its 5 products operational in version 20, extending their compatibility with the Autodesk family of related products in the 2020 release

On 21 and 22 November MCS cannot miss the reference appointment of the BIM context by participating in DIGITIAL & BIM Italia at Bologna fiere presenting itself in a new graphic layout with new logos and new solutions

On April 16, 2020 MCS Software announces and makes available ArchVISION RP 21 compatible with Revit from the 2017 version up to the new 2021, a consolidated product, performing and full of interesting and useful news, at the same time it updates its price list and offers as an alternative to traditional and perpetual licenses (Maintenance) also the new rental mode (Subscription) a very versatile, modern and scalable Cloud technology, allowing Smart Working and where necessary the shared use of concurrent licenses that can be used simultaneously for studios, companies but also professionals.

Also in April 2020 the company brochure is updated with a new PDF version, an 8-page document in which the proposal of the software solutions in the price list is best illustrated and the company skills, such as development, training, assistance and customer support, are illustrated.

In September 2020 MCS Software announces and releases ArchVISION OFFICE for REVIT 21, the specific application dedicated to the dynamic and direct calculation Revit – Office (MS Excel and MS Word) produced internationally distributed by the company Anafyo

On April 4th 2021 MCS Software announces and makes available ArchVISION RP 22 compatible with Revit from the 2018 version up to the new 2022, including many new features and improvements that make it more productive in daily work, also compatible with the Cloud technology in the management of shared licenses that is versatile, modern and scalable, allowing work in Smart Working

From 20 April 2021 MCS announces and releases ArchVISION OFFICE for CIVIL 3D 22, a product derived from ArchVISION CP and which represents the MCS Software solution designed for dynamic calculation in Excel and Word (Microsoft) of the projects carried out in Civil 3D (Autodesk) and also includes specific functions for computational needs including structures WBS multi-level. (Work Breakdown Structure).

In autumn 2021 MCS Software participates, in collaboration with ASSOBIM, at the eastern fair of BARI

In April 2022 Autodesk releases and updates the entire range of its products to the new 2023 release and MCS Software simultaneously updates, makes available and announces the relative availability of all its products, aligning them and making them compatible with the new release 23

The release 23 represents for MCS Software an important technological revolution and a reference version being able to compute also the materials and paints for “Family”, “Instance” and at “Global level” with the same versatility and modus operandi always available using primitives .

For years now, the technology and the kernel included in “ArchVISION” have stood out as an ideal plug-in for integrated and dynamic computation in Autodesk Revit, Civil 3D and AutoCAD and still today MCS Software, with a wide product portfolio that also includes ArIeTe and AbaCus software, offers itself to customers as the ideal partner in the BIM field, also in terms of training, consultancy and the development of custom and customized solutions.

MCS Software in brief

In the remote past, speaking in computer science (it was 1992), an individual IT consulting firm was born in Borgaro Torinese: Claudio Mussa’s MCS Video & Grafica. EDIL 1 was born from the desire to analyze the architectural project using three-dimensional visualizations: simple Spartan blocks developed in Autodesk AutoCAD 12 Dos.

More than 30 years have passed!, certainly not a few, an eternity for the computer world; the result was unimaginable for one of the developer companies who first believed in a product and in a sales strategy that was then successful. The positive trend of Autodesk has therefore involved, but it would be more correct to say upset the MCS which, seizing the opportunity for growth over all these years, has always been constantly updated.

MCS Software is an Autodesk Developer Network certified company
