PV Elite Webinar – PV Elite SOLIDWORKS Plugin


with Carlos Valdez, Support Engineer, Hexagon PPM
Date:
 June 27, 2018
Time: 10 AM CDT click here to for your local time
Duration: 60 min
Cost: free eSeminar


In this webinar, learn about the items and geometries covered in the new PV Elite 2018 Plugin for SOLIDWORKS®. The PV Elite SOLIDWORKS plugin allows users to load a PV Elite .pvdb file directly into DSS SOLIDWORKS. The software converts the file to an assembly file. Saving time and helping in obtaining faster deliverables.

Take advantage of the ability to manage the vessel information associated with the model, such a smart tag which links the vessel data from your model Properties to a drawing.

Join us as we explore the software’s customization and detail for assembly representations, and see this powerful functionality for yourself during a live demonstration.

Speaker bio:

Carlos Valdez graduated with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Houston. With years of experience in customer service and with an engineering background, Carlos joined the Hexagon PPM team and took on the roll as a Support Engineer. He strives to find solutions and provide technical support for PV Elite and CAESAR II analysis software.

CADWorx Webinar: Efficient Design of Wastewater Treatment Structures


with Aimee Ferguson, Hexagon PPM

with Michael Smith, Hexagon PPM

Date: June 21, 2018
Duration: 45 min
Cost: free eSeminar

Water treatment plants are vital to all of us and intrinsically tied to the energy industry. For modeling the specialized structures that are typical in the wastewater industry, it is important to have the right design tool in order to stay a step ahead of your competition.

In the fall of 2017, CADWorx Structure 2018 released several new tools that can be utilized in the design of wastewater treatment structures to help increase your efficiencies when modeling in this industry.

During this webinar, we will show how these tools can be used to their fullest potential, provide information on what opportunities this industry can offer you, and offer you some examples of success stories where CADWorx has been the tool of choice.

Speaker Bios:

Aimee Ferguson, P.E., is the product owner for CADWorx Structure, coming to Intergraph in 2008 after a career in Construction Field Engineering. Her background in structural engineering and construction with a large EPC has been leveraged in the development of several Intergraph products, including Smart 3D. Aimee has added agile software development skills to her technical experience and joined the CADWorx Structure team in 2016 in the product owner role to assist in launching and further developing this product.

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. 

Reach us to learn how SmartPlant Spoolgen / Plus meets key business challenges and delivers real benefit by helping you to:

        Optimise spooling for workshop pre-fabrication and field piping erection

        Efficiently utilise materials, machinery and manpower

        Automatically create shop drawings, including all required details, ten times faster

        Calculate accurate bulk MTO quantities to gain best material prices

        Measure fabrication tasks and shop productivity

        Monitor and control welding procedures

        Manage the impact of revisions on pipe spool production

        Reduce errors and avoid rework by eliminating 95% of manual data entry

        Increase accuracy and quality of pipe spool deliverables

        Deliver fit-for-purpose pipe spools to current standards and on schedule

If you would like to know more or for an exclusive presentation to know how Hexagon Smartplant Spoolgen can help you to improve the productivity of your team, please get in touch with us.

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.

Read the case study.
