3DSMART comes with all the applications you need to form a complete 3D piping design solution. It also includes the PROCAD P&ID software. 3D Modeler provides designers with a full set of time saving intelligent modeling tools for plant design, skid design and other specialized construction. Other notable features include:
Rules based connectivity When connecting components, the program will display colored cones at all the possible connection points in the model. Choose the cone at the desired connection point and 3D Modeler will auto check piping connection rules such as pipe size, line number match, pipe rating match and wall thickness match. Once the connectivity rules are satisfied, the new item is connected with precision to the existing component.
Auto-Weld automatically adds welds when fittings are joined
Auto-Gasket places gaskets automatically when required by fittings
Flange Set Auto-Complete adds all the components needed in a flange set connection
Valve Flange Set Auto-Complete adds gasket, bolts and flange to complete valve assembly
Pipe Spec Export/Import tools
Copy Design feature allows you to save time by re-using existing designs
Smart editing tools to copy, reconnect, reposition, or move piping components in the 3D model
2D deliverables Easily generate 2D plans and section drawings and add dimensions and annotations. The wizard guides you step-by-step.
Structural steel component Model steel structures by inserting and editing steel components. Features include:
Standard steel shapes
Coping, mitering and hole drilling
Automated generation of plans and sections
Ability to stretch or break steel members and other linear components
Ability to delete holes and coping of existing steel members
Portability with DWG files Send your DWG drawing files (models) to your customers who can view and/or edit them in AutoCAD (they don’t need 3DSMART). Any files you receive back will be automatically audited by 3DSMART for changes against the original drawing file. If there have been any changes, 3DSMART will alert you by giving you the option to accept the changes or discard them.
