Revit® and AutoCAD® Content
Greenheck's Housed Plenum Array Ideal for New or Retrofit Air Handler ApplicationsCAPS allows you to easily generate as-configured Revit® and CAD content which can save you time and money.  When changes occur, re-generate the content and the Revit data is reloaded.  Each mark will then update to the latest configuration details and performance.

New Installation Package Targeted for IT Personnel
We have added the Microsoft Systems Installer (MSI) installation package which has proven to have fewer issues with other programs and antivirus software. The MSI installation package is intended, but not limited to the IT person. It has several advantages:

  • Allows for mass deployment - IT can release it to multiple computers. 
  • Fixes some of the Admin Rights issues.  Allows CAPS to run until IT updates your computer.
  • Allows for installation for someone without Internet access (firms with high security).

If you have these requirements, please contact the CAPS Customer Service group for the new MSI based installation package.
