CADDS 5 Piping and Outfitting Design Option

All the tools needed for the design and manufacturing planning of piping systems, including Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams (P&ID), isometric piping layouts and the routing of 3D pipe-runs through 3D product assemblies.

This package also includes all the outfitting tools required so that the designer can add brackets and fixing to support the designed pipe-runs. The package can be used for not only the design of main pipe routes, but also those needed for the controlling systems such as actuators and hydraulics.

All information created during a pipe design can be conveniently stored in a local database or in a company's Oracle or Optegra database using the included database management tools so that pipe design rules and component usage can be tracked.

The manufacturing outputs include all the information needed to drive NC pipe-benders directly from the 3D design.

Though not a prerequisite, it is recommended customers use CADDS 5 Concurrent Assembly with this package for additional assembly scalability and flexibility.

This package includes:

Piping and outfitting design provides the integrated tools enabling the modeling of mechanical equipment and vessels and the necessary connecting piping networks and supports.

CADDS 5 Piping Layout and P&ID (Pipe and Instrumentation Diagram)

Piping Layout and P&ID automates the development of three-dimensional piping and equipment designs and P&ID (process and instrumentation diagrams). Using piping-specific commands, engineers and designers can model, update, analyze, and document piping models and schematics.

The Piping Layout and P&ID software supports two-dimensional schematic and 3-dimensional layout using lines and symbols to represent the pipes, fittings, and other equipment. The software accommodates both graphic and non-graphic information about the piping system in the same database.

The software ensures design integrity. Routines reference the specifications of the original pipeline to automatically size, scale, and orient branch fittings, flanges, gaskets, and bolting. Design verification tools and access to industry-standard piping analysis software allows companies to increase the quality of their designs.

The Piping Layout and P&ID software can automatically generate a fully detailed, real-world image of the piping model or P&ID for review, documentation, and marketing. Users can produce documentation including fully detailed elevations, plans, and other views, as well as bills of material and from/to reports.

Specification driven pipe routing ensures strict adherence to design rules allowing only the correct fitting types and end conditions to be inserted.

CADDS 5 Piping Isometrics

Piping Isometrics software automates the production of fabrication and installation drawings. These drawings, called piping isometrics-provide an easy way for ship and plant designers to communicate the design intent and production details of a three-dimensional piping model or other support system.

The Piping Isometrics software automatically extracts the not-to-scale wire model-along with available manufacturing and installation information from the original CADDS three-dimensional piping model.

This not-to-scale model is automatically adjusted to suit your company's standard drawing sheets applicable and annotated fully as required. CADDS 5 piping isometrics follow industry standard conventions for representing these layouts in an easy-to-understand, not-to-scale format. They also include annotation symbols and conventions that depict specific features of piping layouts.

The resulting piping isometric is an idealized shape that represents the constituent parts of the pipe in a not-to-scale form that easily accommodates dimensions and annotation.
