Outfitting Detail Design suite overview

The Outfitting Detail Design suite includes all the functionality of 3D modelling of the Basic Design suite – creating 3D models, layout of equipment, routing pipes, HVAC and cable trays, containments, functional model templates. Additionally the Detail Design suite has a full package of modules for production information: spools and isos, duct stools, support design, electrical design and integration with Hull modules.

Ducting

The HVAC module takes the efficiency and user friendliness of air duct design to a completely new level. This has been achieved with the aid of specification-driven routing, as well as automatically generated HVAC Spools and Bills of Materials (BOMs).

Cadmatic has a powerful HVAC and ducting module for efficient 3D modelling and extraction of drawings and listings. The designer can simply concentrate on routing ducts while the system ensures that the correct components are used every time. The online collision detection alerts the designer immediately if there are collisions during routing. It is possible to change the specification during duct routing and regenerate parts according to the ducting spec - as with pipe routing. Also for rectangular air ducts the user can define the insulation specification and see insulation in the 3D model to take advantage of space reservation and collision detection. New additional materials can be

defined for insulation pins for rectangular ducts.

Ducting components

The design of air ducts is based on specifications and the look and feel is quite similar to pipe routing. The specification consists of design rules that ensure that the correct materials are selected according to the size-related duct part design rules. There are three different types of air duct parts: straight ducts, prefabricated ducts and industrially manufactured parts. The specifications also include the definitions for additional duct part materials such as flanges, bend radiuses, duct ends etc. The correct amount of holes is always inserted automatically for flanges.

In practice the designer selects the system and HVAC Line ID before selecting the shape and size for the air duct; thereafter he/she can continue with air duct routing.

The system automatically selects the correct components for duct parts and curve radiuses according to the specifications and duct part design rules. This significantly increases the efficiency and decreases the amount of errors in design.

The designer can also use custom values for sizes by defining the width and height of the duct part manually.

Ducting Spools drawings

The Ducting Spool module automatically produces dimensioned prefabrication documents. The function is similar to pipe spool drawing generation. As a result the user produces dimensioned duct spool drawings for prefabrication with all the necessary production information and BOMs.

The duct spool drawings can be generated in groups according to the logistical hierarchies inherited from Cadmatic containment management. The duct spool groups can for instance be any of the 3D spaces or installation stages. The status control function makes it easy to check which air ducts have already been generated to documents.

Support Designer

Support Designer makes modelling of primary and secondary piping-, ducting- and cable tray supports very easy and fast.

It creates exact production drawings of supports. The designer simply inputs the location of the supports and the drawings are automatically produced.

The dimensions of primary and secondary supports based on the pipe dimensions are also automatically created.

Automatic isometrics and spool drawings

Cadmatic efficiently produces all the required isometric and spool drawings and material take-offs in the manufacture and installation of piping. The system is extremely flexible and easy to configure.

Cadmatic Isometrics and spools provides several settings and rules that can be adjusted according to company standards. The intelligent automatic annotation rules guarantee the required output every time drawings are produced, even if the work is done in several locations.

Completed drawings (isometrics, spools, material take-offs) are produced automatically from the 3D model. The flexible and customizable Isometrics & Spools module takes manufacturing technology into account. Data for bending machines and other manufacturing parameters can, for example, be added to the database. The Isometrics & Spools module outputs manufacturing information such as cutting lists, surface treatment, welds, total weight and center of gravity. Drawings can be easily exported to different formats such as AutoCAD DWG/-DXF, PDF, DWF & SVG. Cadmatic Isometrics supports Windows true type fonts which ensures that drawings are clear and easy to read.

It is possible to break the most complex isometric drawings automatically into smaller groups if needed. This can be done either with predefined rules or according to the rules defined by the customer. Several spool drawings can be nested in one drawing sheet if desired. The rules for fully automated spool generation can also be modified easily as well as the automatic naming rules for both isometric and spool drawings.

One of the most important parts of a design project is the extraction of project documentation. Isometric drawings form a significant part of the documentation scope. Over the years automatic pipe isometric generation was developed as part of Cadmatic software solutions to fulfill the needs of our customers.

The isometric generation module is part of Cadmatic’s solutions and therefore make its use a natural choice. The main goal was to develop an intelligent connection with the 3D model to track all the modifications and accurate annotation mechanism. In replicated projects with several locations and offices working under the same project the software takes care of the ownership of each isometric drawing and accessibility for all involved engineers.

In big projects piping the number of pipelines can reach several tens of thousands and automatic production of isometrics is critical to keep to time schedules and project deadlines.

According to research conducted with our customers, the percentage of spools generated fully automatically, without requiring any additional manual work, and ready for printing and workshop, is 98%. Some additional attention might be needed for the rest due to special pipe junctions (e.g. miter elbow connections etc.) that require additional clarification of dimensions on the drawing.

Some of the main advantages of using Cadmatic for spools and isometric generation are the fully customizable layout, complete integration with the 3D model, and automatic breaking of isometrics for several pages according to predefined project settings. You can select how big a part of the pipeline will be shown on each page and define how to split pipelines (on flange connections, joints, welding seams etc.). Lists of materials are generated fully automatically including all kinds of additional materials such as bolts, nuts, washers and insulation materials. Additional information can be easily added and shown automatically, like coordinates for installation purposes, labels of next ISOS’ names to continue mounting and external surface area for painting estimation. Additional information can also be imported as referenced drawings that show a 3D picture of the pipeline, or standard projections as well as special sketches for pipe parts.

At the same time when spools and isometric drawings are generated they can be exported in 2D as PDFs, DWGs, DXFs or PCF files, or sent strait to a printer.

The designer can visually control the 3D model piping geometry status in isometrics – the comparison mechanism checks updates for piping isometrics and visualizes the differences in a 3D view and in eBrowser.

Cadmatic has a powerful macro language which enables all kinds of scripts to be created by users, such as the customization of production output and automation of design functions for example.

The Cadmatic Outfitting Detail Design suite can be used independently or with the Diagram seat. For more information about the Diagram seat functionality, see the Cadmatic Diagram seat module description.
