AutoCAD MEP Clash Reports

Revit products have had the ability to report all interferences in a schedule since they came out, which has made them fundamentally better than looking all over the place to red lines hidden in a busy drawing in ABS/AutoCAD MEP. Well, here's a gem of an undocumented command for AutoCAD MEP. Type "clashreport" on your command line and check this out.

Choose the types of interferences you are looking for by checking the appropriate boxes and click OK. AutoCAD MEP will prompt you for the location of the report in your drawing. When it is added, it will also add numbered triangle to your drawing indicated where the interferences are that correspond to the numbers in the report. Now that's awesome!
