CADISON® 3D Designer

CADISON® 3D-Designer

CADISON® 3D-Designer is for Layouts and Piping, isometric, Steel Layout planning, which allows the users to build plant layouts, pipeline routing, duct routing, equipment modeling, steel layouts, Isometric creation and report generation. This 3D Plant Design Software also provides various extremely helpful and time saving wizards (design assistants) such as ‘Vessel Assistant’, ‘Nozzle Assistant’ for creating 3D vessels and tanks. CADISON® 3D Designer also integrates pipe support modeler and steel layout modules to quickly add secondary supports and create steel layouts. It also enable users to import Autodesk® Inventor assembly into CADISON® environment through Inventor® interface. CADISON® 3D plant design tool is an integrated database driven software which automatically generates isometric drawings using ISOGEN®, Pipe Support Hookups from 3D models .


Intergrated 3D Plant


Intelligent creation of P&ID’s using database environment

Specification driven, integrated 3D Plant design & Equipment Engineering Software:

  • CADISON® 3D Designer is a rule-based design module for 3D design layout of a plant with optimum space planning. It allows users to build a fully detailed model of all piping systems, duct routing and equipment layouts based on component catalogs and engineering specifications (materials, media, etc.)
  • CADISON® object oriented technology and single database allows real integration between disciplines. For example the data generated during the process planning and entered in to P&ID’s and Project Engineer can be used in 3D designer for further engineering.
  • CADISON® 3D Designer integration with various modules, wizards and interfaces (such as pipe support modeler, steel layout and pipe stress analysis software) creates comprehensive 3D plant design environment for all the major plant disciplines
  • CADISON® 3D Plant model generates piping General Arrangement drawings, isometric drawings and accurate bill of quantities, part list, reports, etc.
  • CADISON® provides interfaces with industry standard CAE software’s – CAESER II & ROHR II for quick and accurate analysis of piping system
  • It allows 3D interference / clash checking (in Navisworks) and configurable rule based quality control tool ‘Logic Analyzer’ identify errors and inconsistencies across the design
  • Integrated Report Generator enables users to generate various types of reports (valve lists, equipment lists, measurement lists, etc.)

Equipment layout

Effective Space Planning and Equipment layouts with CADISON® 3D Designer:

  • Equipment layouts can be planned by accessing existing models from equipment suppliers. CADISON® 3D Designer imports models through CAD interfaces such as Inventor (.sat), native AutoCAD® (.dwg) ® for layout design
  • CADISON® intelligently creates additional objects such as nozzle and flange to use as connection points to continue pipe routing
  • Users can create accurate 3D design of process equipment and skid units with all attribute data behind for accurate documentation/reports
  • Users can also take equipment or pipeline data/information from P&ID or Plant structure through simple Drag & Drop and insert them in 3D model
  • It’s easy to use design assistant helps user to create and place equipments such as 3D tank and vessels.
  • CADISON® 3D designer integrates with Catalog Manager (Matpipe) for 3D parametric catalog components (gaskets, flanges, pumps, etc.). Designers select, place and auto-route components for quick 3D model creation
  • 3D model created can be used for creating pipeline plans and isometric drawings simultaneously. Users can automatically extract General arrangement drawings, bill of quantity and also do connectivity or clash checks
  • CADISON® Equipment Simplifier (powered by CADfix) enables users to reduce the file size of imported equipment models, giving our users more manageable equipment models for integration with the CADISON plant design solution. Users can continue with plant design in CADISON® independent of the CAD system used by their manufacturing departments


INVENTOR-Improved-Interface

Equipment Modeling with Inventor interface

  • 3D parts from Autodesk Inventor can be imported to CADISON® 3D-designer
  • CADISON® intelligently creates additional objects such as nozzle and flange to use as connection points to continue pipe routing
  • Complex assemblies can be quickly and easily converted into CADISON®
  • Connection type "pipe with flange" is supported
  • "CADISON® export" Inventor plug-in is available for suppliers using the Inventor Environment
  • Built-in intelligence to verify association between object, XML file and SAT file exported from Inventor
  • Search feature is available to display the list of all existing Inventor imported objects in a drawing
  • The update function simplifies handling in CADISON® 3D updates in Inventor original model


Create custom (non-standard) pipe supports

Standard Pipe Support and Secondary Supports Library

  • A wizard for pipe support allows a user to create different types of predefined supports during the data entry stage (for e.g. offset, orientation and industry validations)
  • Supports created using ‘Create Support’ wizard are constructible and erectable.
  • Auto-linking to standard support helps easy identification of associated secondary support in the isometric drawing
  • Automatic Hookup drawing feature helps in generating production drawings of a selected type of support.
  • It also enables the users to create non-standard pipe supports manually using steel profiles (beam/columns). This also enable to convert a standard pipe support to custom pipe support by adding/removing the required/unwanted profiles from the standard pipe-supports created using 'Assistant for Pipe-Support' wizard

2D Extractions

Automatic 2D Extractions (GA Drawings, Isometrics) form 3D Model:

  • CADSION® supports industrial standard ISOGEN to create isometrics. All pipelines designed in 3D Designer can be automatically transformed into fabrication isometrics in one single operation
  • Users can deliver 3D pipeline image (real view) of the pipe in isometric view for construction site; beneficial during erection of complex pipelines
  • CADISON® provides flexibility to the users to customize isometric views/templates as per the requirement
  • Simultaneous creation of isometrics and Piping General Arrangement drawings.
  • Equipment layouts & construction drawings (with Vessel details, Nozzle orientation, etc.)
  • Easy drag and drop of ‘Section View’ from CADSION® tree in to paper space helps to create multiple sections for viewing 3D model in 2D view.
  • Easy insertion of system generated symbols (pipe end cut, insulation and flow direction) for better visualization of GA drawings

Features

Auto routing for Efficient Space Planning

Custom Assembly of Steel Objects

Design Assistants for Equipment Modeling

Automatic Isometrics Creation with ISOGEN®

Clash Detection

Integrated Report Generator

  • CADISON® Autorouter

    The CADISON® Autorouter decisively facilitates the graphical representation of pipelines. For instance, CADISON® automatically adds the correct flanges, seals and bolts when taking a valve from the schematic. Moreover, the required reducers are set automatically.

  • Tank and Nozzles Assistant

    Rapid and easy placement of tanks, pipe sections and intelligent pipe nozzles. Further requirements like sectional views, elevations and Isometric drawings are generated automatically

  • Custom Assembly of Steel Objects

    Add on menu in Inventor will assist the users in exporting Inventor part or assembly file into SAT and XML format. The interface has a provision to define connection points on planar face of any shape in Inventor as well as in CADISON® import wizard. This gives a user the ability to import objects with / without the connection points.

  • Automatic Isometrics Creation with ISOGEN®

    CADISON® supports the recognized industrial standard ISOGEN® and provides isometrics in this format. It is possible to transform all pipelines designed by CADISON® 3D-Designer into fabrication isometric in one operation.

  • Collision Tests

    CADISON® supports the visualization & clash detection tool Navisworks. This tool makes it easy to detect possible planning errors at any time and at an early stage so that project implementation is not jeopardized.

  • Integrated Report Generator

    CADISON® 3D-Designer have built-in configurable report generator for automatic extractions of reports, BOM, etc. For example, flange and pipeline lists or even selective material evaluation documents can be prepared for individual construction stages.
