Procure and Prefabricate From Your 2D Drawings

2D Module

Verify and Quantify your materials, Integrate with suppliers in a few clicks from your 2D drawings. Jumpstart your prefabrication journey, and stay connected with your teams and your material supply chain with AECInspire’s 2D Module.


Key Features

Automated Bill-of-Materials

When AECInspire is used to take off a 2D plan, the software automatically creates a Bill-of-Material (BOM) at both the assembly and component level.  The BOMs can be used for procurement and with both internal & external prefabrication efforts.

Pre-built Assembly Library

AECInspire is loaded with pre-built generic assemblies as well as assemblies from our Manufactured Assembly Provider (MAP) Network, which can be used during 2D take-offs and sheet markups in AECInspire.




Custom Assembly Configurator

AECInspire includes a dynamic "assembly configurator" that allows you to add your company's prefab assemblies directly into your project database. In doing so, the BOMs for your projects will be specific to what your prefab shop requires (and don't worry, only your company has access to your assemblies).
