CADWorx 2017 R1 is now available

This is a very exciting time. The announcement is out – CADWorx 2017 R1 is now available! We are of course excited with each new release of CADWorx, however 2017 R1 stands out and accomplishes a major new milestone never before delivered.

Interest in seeing CADWorx run on additional platforms is nothing new. However the value of offering this is greater now than ever before in light of persistent economic pressures to lower costs, combined with the continued need for perpetual CAD platform licensing options.

We have heard your calls, and with CADWorx 2017 R1 we have dedicated significant development to deliver what you have been asking for. With CADWorx 2017 R1 and going forward you now have the choice of running either on AutoCAD as previously or on BricsCAD. With the 2017 R1 release CADWorx Plant, Equipment, P&ID, IP, and Structure each offer full functionality on either the BricsCAD Pro or BricsCAD Platinum new platforms.

Six Times Faster Brownfield Project Execution with Intergraph® CADWorx® Solutions


Croatian engineering and analysis specialist Numikon improves productivity 640% with Intergraph CADWorx solutions
“When we first started using the Leica total station and Intergraph software the two companies trained our staff. It took them about ten days to get up to speed and start on their first project. We were particularly impressed by the in-depth knowledge of the Intergraph and Leica people. On the whole we estimate that our productivity has gone up by as much as 640% (six times)! This productivity gain means that we can minimize the on-site project time and maximize efficiency, offering our customers a very attractive package.” Mario Anić, Sales Manager from Numikon stated.
Numikon is a Croatian engineering company specializing in the calculation and analysis of mechanical, power and process equipment and components, project engineering of process and power plants, pipe stress analysis, pressure vessel design, as well as laser scanning and laser surveying.
Numikon executed a refinery project for INA-Industrija nafte d.d., a leading oil exploration, production, refining and marketing company in Croatia. INA was looking for an efficient solution to create as-built information for their Sisak refinery, and hired a consortium of companies for the project. Numikon was chosen to execute a laser scanning survey and create as-built models of the existing refinery.
The main challenge for Numikon was that the laser survey had to be undertaken while the refinery was operating, and some of the piping was difficult to access because of its location above ground, or because it was insulated, as well as the tight deadline of the project.
With the help of CADWorx fieldPipe Professional and CADWorx Plant Professional, Numikon surveyed their part of Sisak refinery in only 49 days. Using the laser surveyed data the company created all deliverables required by INA, including:
• 3D models
• Piping isometrics
• Details of piping components (valves, pressure regulators, flanges, supports, etc.)
• Tag and nameplate details
• Details of the equipment and connected piping
• Pipe stress analysis results (including required test pressure) and pipe data (wall thickness, material properties, etc.)

When Intelligent P&IDs Are Not Enough

While the P&ID has been the ‘go-to’ document for the representation of the process and functionality of a facility, it is unfortunate that much of the rich data that P&IDs represent in the real world is seldom even available at the time of their creation.

Vornel Walker, vice president of Product Marketing at Intergraph CADWorx & Analysis Solutions, discusses the various methods available to link rich asset data to P&IDs and how that data can be interlinked and made available to all stakeholders at their various points of need.

Read the complete article from the September 2015 issue of Offshore World.
