Key benefits

  • Highly scalable multiuser system for globally distributed design teams.
  • Existing 3D designs are easy to modify and reuse in multiple projects.
  • Optimal performance also with large and complex 3D models.
  • Automation of data handling, minimizing errors, saving time.

How it works

The 3D modeling of a process flow mainly consists of adding components such as pumps, tanks, motors and control units as required, routing straight pipes and curves between the equipment, and adding valves. Designers can select a suitable 3D model object from the library, assign a position ID, and define the exact location of the object in the model area. 


3D model and layout

CADMATIC 3D Plant Design lets users concentrate on important tasks: creating equipment layouts, routing pipes and ducts, locating structural units, allocating service spaces and completing projects by laying electric cables, while the software takes care of the rest: controlling collisions and indicating connections according to diagrams, storing units for further use and checking the compatibility of components. 

Structural modeling

Predefined structural units allow the easy creation of constructions that are used repeatedly. Designers can set the types and standards of the units such as platforms, walkways, cages, and ladders, for example, and then place them in the model. 

All the required construction data can be extracted automatically, including MTOs, construction drawings, and others.

Piping design

When doing piping design in CADMATIC, the designer can rest assured that the correct components from the standards library are being used. 

By taking advantage of the suggested connection points according to the diagram, order or piping elements and online collision, error-free piping design can be achieved.

Advanced use of CADMATIC Plant Design software

"CADMATIC has sufficient capacity to deal with large projects. The Blominmäki treatment plant is a 10-hectare area filled with pipes and devices, which demands a lot from the software. CADMATIC does not run out of steam. Their piping design features are truly world class."
