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.)

CADWorx Plant Command of the week [Total Center of Gravity]

Total Center of Gravity Generator

CADWorx Plant I tab: Pipe BOM / DB > C.G. Generator

Plant menu: Accessory > C.G. Generator

Command line: TCG

Calculates center of gravity for all components drawn in X, Y planes (2D plans) or in X, Y, Z planes (3D Model). You can use a generic attach (from Plant > Toolbars > Misc) which provides the center of gravity location and weight. For more information on specifying a center of gravity location for a generic attach, see Generic Attach or Steel – Generic Attachment.

Selection can be done by crossing, window, or selecting individual component.

Total Center of Gravity Calculation Dialog Box

Calculates the total center of gravity for all components.

Selected Components

Select – Enables you to select items to calculate the total center of gravity for that item.

Piping – Enables piping to be calculated for the total center of gravity. Reports the selected component counters in the corresponding box.

Piping Insulation – Enables piping insulation to be calculated for the total center of gravity. Reports the selected component counters in the corresponding box.

Steel – Enables steel to be calculated for the total center of gravity. Reports the selected component counters in the corresponding box.

HVAC – Enables HVAC to be calculated for the total center of gravity. Reports the selected component counters in the corresponding box.

Equipment – Enables equipment to be calculated for the total center of gravity. Reports the selected component counters in the corresponding box.

You must have a material set for the equipment, and then run EQUIPCG before you can get a center of gravity calculation for equipment in CADWorx Plant.

Report Options

Title – Specifies a title for the report that prints when CG is calculated.

Path – Specifies the location of the report file. Click the Path ellipsis to change the location and save the file.

Print report to command line – Prints the total center of gravity report to the command line.

View Report – Indicates that the software opens the report after the center of gravity calculates.

Insert drawing marker – Inserts a drawing marker for the total center of gravity.

  • Click C.G. Generator on the Pipe BOM / DB panel in the CADWorx Plant I tab. alternatively, type TCG on the command line and then press ENTER.
    • The Total CG Calculation dialog box displays.
  • Select the type of components to calculate center of gravity.
  • Enter a title for the report in the Title box.
  • Select whether you want the report to print on the command line, view the report, or whether you want to insert a marker.
  • Click Select.
    • Before you can get a center of gravity calculation for equipment in CADWorx Plant, you must have a material set for the equipment, and then you must run EQUIPCG.
    • When selecting equipment to calculate the center of gravity, you have the following choices:
      • Select all.
  • Zoom to the small white cross and select it.
  • Select the components, and then press ENTER.
    • The center of gravity calculates and the Total CG Calculation dialog box redisplays with the selected component counters in the corresponding boxes.
  • Click OK.
