ImageGrafix Software – Hexagon Spoolgen – Fabrication & Construction Solutions

SmartPlant® Spoolgen® is a proven, industrial-strength application that enables the creation of piping isometric drawings for fabrication and erection from the design created during the detail engineering phase of projects. You can add additional information – such as the location of field welds – and create new drawings and reports from the same source as the original drawings. The technology is based on Isogen®, the industry-standard software for automated piping isometric generation and has been deployed successfully on all sizes of plant engineering projects in every region of the world.


SmartPlant Spoolgen is fast and accurate because it eliminates the need to redraw isometrics and manually re-create material take off reports. SmartPlant Spoolgen can work with data from almost any plant design system – Intergraph Smart® 3D, PDS®, and CADWorx®; AVEVA PDMS; and Bentley AutoPLANT and PlantSpace are all supported.

Sihy Finland use Spoolgen to Improve Productivity

Spoolgen automates receipt and processing of PCF files to generate data files for workshop machines and to populate planning and tracking systems.

Nortech Streamlines Plant Design with CADWorx


Nortech was selected to engineer and design a new plant for Jersey Gas company, a liquefied petro gas importer owned by International Energy Group.The new plant was required to operate on demand and cover seasonal differences in energy demand, allowing the existing gas holder to be withdrawn out of service and the associated land to be sold for further development.

Nortech chose CADWorx Plant Professional and Autodesk Navisworks for their familiarity and AutoCAD-based 3D design capabilities. The 3D design began with the creation of piping specifications along with existing, modified, and new piping catalogs. The piping modeling commenced after the creation of the specifications.

CADWorx Plant Professional was also used for the structural, civil, and mechanical design. After this, all the isometric drawings were produced with Isogen, enabling automated isometric creation tailored to Nortech’s needs. Piping support details and generic 3D design were also created. Plus, the 3D design was transferred into a fully dimensional 2D format for fabrication purposes.
