Software Suite Produces Specification-Driven Models From Laser Scans of Piping Systems

COADE Inc.’s CADWorx fieldPipe for CloudWorx is said to enable users to quickly and easily build an intelligent, specification-driven model using point cloud data from laser scan information.  It does this in conjunction with Leica CloudWorx by reading point cloud scans and bringing them into the CADWorx fieldPipe model.  Once the point cloud is opened in COADE’s CADWorx fieldPipe, the program calculates the center and diameter of the pipe run by selecting just one point on the surface of a pipe cylinder. Once all parameters are set, the user can accurately place piping components using the point cloud data in the model.
The CADWorx Plant Design Suite for process plant design offers intelligent drawing to database connectivity, advanced levels of design automation and easy-to-use design tools, according to the company. CADWorx also offers bi-directional links between CAD and engineering analysis tools, linking CADWorx with COADE’s industry-leading software programs for pipe (CAESAR II) and pressure vessel and exchanger (PV Elite) analysis and design.
