This method is new to the design industry and incorporates the latest 3D technologies to successfully design and construct projects. The 3D softwares used are CADWorx and Solidworks as described below. Utilizing these 3D softwares allows the client, designer, & constructor to communicate effectively. With the push of a button the model will also be used to create 2D fabrication piece part drawings, Bill of Materials (BOMs), interference detection, and assistance during construction installation.
The CADWorx program will be used to complete a 3D model of the installation. CADWorx Plant can provide orthographic, isometric and 3D models. The CADWorx Plant suites supply the most complete range of tools for hassle-free plant design. Piping, equipment, steel, HVAC and cable trays. CADWorx Plant allows you to work in 2D or 3D mode with full intelligence. Quick 2D plans can be converted into 3D models at anytime. Because CADWorx Plant uses standard AutoCAD solids, it delivers some of the best performance, smallest models, and greatest compatibility in its class. No special enablers are required for viewing, plotting or even editing in native AutoCAD.
The Solidworks program will be used to complete a 3D model of the fabrication parts. Solidworks mechanical design automation software is a piece part based, dimensional relational, geometrical solid modeling design tool which takes advantage of the associative 3D solid models with or without the constraints while utilizing automatic or user defined relations to capture design intent.
