Autodesk Fabrication ESTmep Security Alert

A word of warning to all companies using Autodesk Fabrication ESTmep, your CAD department may be sharing all your costing and labor information without even knowing it.
The Autodesk Fabrication CADmep Configuration Editor has a setting that reads “Do NOT Save Est Tables with DWG Database”.

 

This option is unchecked by default when installing CADmep, meaning that all of your costing and labor information is going out every time they send a drawing file out to someone.

It is my recommendation that you check this box on every workstation that has CADmep installed. This will go a long way to keeping your costing and labor information private.
