2D/3D CAD planning software for all kinds of events
pep EVENT® has been specially developed for the event management sector. The system allows all users, without prior knowledge, to plan in a simple and professional manner. The principle involves “positioning instead of drawing”.
The equipment items are clicked on and inserted from the extensive symbol libraries.
Standard functions of conventional CAD system such as drawing options, dimensioning, distance and size measurement, scaling, photo integration etc. are available.
In addition to the symbol libraries with thousands of special event objects, user-friendly sector-specific functions have also been integrated. These include automated layout design, variant creation, escape and emergency route planning, evaluable text and address fields, indoor and outdoor floor-space management incl. trade fair planning, marquee and room module, import and export functions (to/from MS Excel) and numbering, reservation and menu disposition up to person search and automated inclusion of place setting etc. for the placement area.
The user interface has been set up in a modular and structured manner according to the use case for room building or room inventory, marquee construction, placement, disposition, installation, trade fair area or escape and emergency route planning.
The integrated information field will guide you step by step through the application.
With pep EVENT®, the basic principle “as simple as possible, as complex as necessary” is followed.
pep EVENT® is based on a professional, vector-based CAD system. The user interface as well as file format correspond to the international standard of leading global planning software.
The system is suitable for small companies as well as for larger companies as an individual or multiple solution. Thanks to the dwg file format, it is an excellent supplement to the already existing software applications.
Compatibility with the database software pep MANAGER as well as interface standards for connecting third-party systems are given.
Users and their customers can freely explore the planned events thanks to the interactive virtual reality application pep PRESENTER.
The agent software pep AGENT has been integrated free of charge. A straightforward search for objects or exclusive providers is thus ensured.
Guideline - Scopes of Application
You can plan the dwg/dxf floor plan files of the architect, a cadastral plan, scanned in hard copy plans or a photo on a basic grid. You can create a floor plan yourself in 2D or 3D. Use the Quickroom function or assign a height to line graphics for a particularly rapid 3D room building. Use the 2D rendering mode; this also shows the vector graphics of a dwg/dxf floor plan file or a cadastral plan in addition to the 3D rendering.
Place the equipment objects in a floor plan. Use the symbol groups to display detailed bar and buffet installations or stage setups within seconds. Frequently used symbols can be transferred to the favourites library per mouse click. Movement areas of the symbols ensure compliance with the required distances and the grid technique enables a precise positioning. A BOM created at the click of a button shows the type and number of planned objects and can be further processed in MS Excel. Furthermore, symbols with free size data can be used for your own creations.
• All symbols are created in dwg file format, have a uniform structure, are file size optimised, evaluable and thus globally compatible with every CAD program.
Use the prepared table groups, whereby the generation of your own table groups is of course possible, but this is almost never required. Rasterise the table groups next to each other or copy with your own distance data. Create the automated row seating by indicating the number of rows. Carry out feasibility studies and determine the space requirement for table groups or seats. Create automated variants for a room or copy the created setups from one planning to others. You can define the design of the table groups at any time. If necessary, you can of course position the place settings and distribute decorative objectives automatically.
• Colour change of tables and seats is realised automatically at the click of a button.
The 2D graphics can be shown in colour independently of the 3D graphics.
Number or reserve tables, table groups or seats. Number from the left to the right, from the top down or also vice versa. In the case of organic setups, use the semi-automatic numbering. Export the numbering. Allow your customers to carry out the assignment to the places or tables themselves by means of a (MS Excel) table. Import the data or name lists and assign information to the seats per drag & drop. You can if necessary detail your planning and structure the seats according to categories. Use the search function to highlight numbers or names. Show or hide the information depth of your planning or reservation colours if necessary.
• Show your placement on a monitor in front of the event room or provide the crew with alphabetically sorted guest lists.
Regardless of whether halls, streets or open-air locations are involved. With the trade fair module, you can position the stand spaces in any desired size and form. You can automatically assign stand numbers as well as reservations and options. You can optionally realise the organisation according to categories. You can alternatively directly plan in a table. The import function creates the area graphics. You can generate automatically sorted legends. You can determine the space utilisation or quantity units for aisle carpets and partitions. The search function selects the stand number or user within seconds. Use pictograms to show access points, catering zones, lifts, parking spaces etc.
Create 2D technology plannings and approval plans or plan the stages, platforms, stands, scaffoldings and trade fair stands. Use the logical assemblies. The system also remains stable when large quantity units are used. Rasterise the spots on trusses or turn these in the free space. Work directly in the 3D view or front and side views. In the case of plannings across several levels, structure the data via a separate layer assignment or form convenient assemblies.
• Trusses, stands and scaffolding symbols contains a 3D grid system.
Create the DIN-compliant escape and emergency route plans using the included symbols. Generate automated escape routes, complete these or modify the width of the routes or sections. Position the escape routes in the centre, within or outside a walking line. Show or hide the emergency escape routes or the entire emergency evacuation planning depending on the requirements.
• Associated variable plan layouts and legends are contained in the library.
The manufacturer-neutral marquee library has been consistently built up and allows for almost all conceivable variations in the area of mobile constructions. With the marquee module, you can plan detailed marquees, marquee landscapes, two- and three-storey marquee constructions or mobile halls. Please use the 3 m and 5 m basic grid as the basis. You can, if necessary, change the grid size at any time at the click of a button. Modify your marquees with terraces and entrances or place these on a substructure, e. g. scaffolding or a platform. Connect the marquees with walkways or pagodas and gabled roof marquees with marquee connectors; these can of course be changed at any time. Generate the lining, roof wind bracing systems or gable inner cladding in an automated manner. Define the window and door shapes and exchange these at the click of a button. Suspended lamps can be simply positioned via the 3D snap point system. In the side view, you can slide trusses including spotlights directly under the ridge.
• Use the modules for the bar and catering systems as well as the stage and truss setups to quickly set up the marquees.
Plan in a cadastral plan or an aerial photo. Use the area module for the schematic representation of the site layout. Space requirements and feasibility can be quickly checked and verified. For a detailed planning, position the marquees, large stages, mobile shops, WC cabins etc. on the site plan. Modify the entire site using fences or lay paving slabs in the access routes. You can take the material requirements for the realisation of the project from the BOM. In the case of complex plannings, you can work with external references. A master file allows for the integration or removal of several individual files.
• External references allow for teamwork in the case of complex projects
