CADWORX INTERFACE WITH REVIT BIM COMPLIANCE MODEL

In CADWorx Plant Professional 2017 R1 is capable to produce the IFC (Industry Foundation class) file as BIM Output for Piping, equipment and Structure & you can create IFC mapping to support BIM Revit software or which BIM software is used in your project.

Benefits of this feature:

In Revit / BIM Software are not able to produce the Isometric, Spool drawings & Output for CAESAR II Pipe Stress analysis, so using the CADWorx Plant professional we can produce Specification based 3D model, Piping GA, Isometric, Spool drawings, Output for CAESAR II Pipe Stress analysis & 3D model of Piping, equipment and Structure can bring inside in Revit / BIM Software as an intelligent 3D Model with the help of IFC file interface.

Please find the below Procedure to export CADWorx models into BIM Output IFC format.

Step1

Open CADWorx Design Review 2017 R1 and open the main Assembly file or all the X-REF files

Step2

Go to Save As and select IFC file type to save the IFC file

If you want to Configure your IFC file depends on the BIM Software, please click the IFC Configs

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.)
