All of our 3D CAD licences have been upgraded to Autodesk Plant design suite Ultimate incorporating Plant 3D, AutoCAD P&ID, Inventor, Revit Structure and Navisworks Manage.
Engineering 2D and 3D model design and drawings
These programs allow us to start with the P&ID and carry through the design into the 3D model which then generates detailed Isometric pipework and installation drawings, thus preventing errors and rework. Other new features include the ability to run animations and walk throughs showing how the project will look at various stages of construction. These features allow you to ‘fly’ around the design using NavisWorks and automatically extract material take-offs.
We are currently trialling an iPad application that allows you to stand inside the design and view it through the ‘window’ of the iPad.
