System Provides a More Intuitive 3-D Review of Plant Design Models
COADE has announced the release of CADWorx Design Review 2009, which provides a faster, easier and more intuitive 3-D review of plant design models for collaboration among designers, project managers, facility owners and other stakeholders involved in the review, modification and approval of designs prior to fabrication or construction. With 3-D review of models, stakeholders reduce the need to interpret designs via paper printouts and other non-interactive methods, and they can improve collaboration with tools for markups, design comments and red-lining, which helps reduce the chance for errors and omissions in the design.
The intuitive interface of CADWorx Design Review 2009 and its performance-based design make manipulating and moving large models quick and smooth. When working on multiple models with CADWorx Design Review, there is no need to manually load the separate model files that make up a design. If files are externally referenced, these are automatically included in the review model.
Creating informative animations is simple with CADWorx Design Review. Users can set out animation paths and edit the path line at any point. The view direction on any point of the animation path can also be edited in any combination.
CADWorx Design Review provides full integration with CADWorx Plant, offering the same model information as in a CADWorx design session, including descriptions, line numbers, weights and other plant-design data.
