Complete detailed 3D: piping, outfitting, HVAC and cables

CADMATIC Outfitting Detailed Design consists of efficient modules that help your design team to create complete and accurate 3D outfitting models. The core system for outfitting design is 3D Outfitting and Piping Design, but it also includes electrical design, air duct spools and HVAC, piping supports, steel outfitting, and weld management. We also have various interfaces for special software packages, such as stress analysis or import-export of 3D and 2D interfaces.

The advanced 3D viewing techniques and model database structure keep the design model extremely light and user friendly, even in the biggest and most complicated vessels or offshore models. The complete integration with CADMATIC Hull ensures that both hull and outfitting designers work in the same environment and can directly solve mutual questions, such as penetrations. 

Specification-driven modeling of pipes and cable trays ensures that the correct materials, sizes, and components are used during modeling. We support work processes with globally distributed teams and ensure IPR safety, allow the sharing of 3D models with eBrowser and on tablets with eGo and the direct use of the results of the design phase in the eShare information management portal.

One of the strongest features of CADMATIC is the ease with which modifications can be made to existing models. Equipment can, for example, be moved to a new position without losing the connection to pipes, because the system ensures that existing pipe geometries are modified accordingly. This saves a lot of time and effort because re-routing of pipes is not necessary. All kinds of components such as equipment, valves, elbows, etc. can be changed easily one by one or several at a time. This means that 3D design can be started at a very early stage in outfitting basic design with preliminary components and replaced later with the correct components with the aid of few mouse clicks.

During the design phase, the software automatically assigns a lot of information to all objects in the 3D model and takes care of concurrent engineering in the project via object ownership control. For example, a routed pipe automatically has information such as flow directions and information about connections, materials, sizes, ownership, and more. All the data is available and can be utilized when creating piping layout drawings, isometric and spool drawings, and material take-offs for production information. Design can be sped up considerably with design modules and model comparison. Design modules enable users to store sets of objects in the library for later use. The ability to reuse designs negates the need for time-consuming copying from older projects. Various structural units that are repeated in different projects are stored in the library for easy reuse and modification.


SDARI – Integrated 3D design with NAPA & CADMATIC

The company has used CADMATIC software since 2008 for piping design, diagrams, hull design, and communication and is currently testing CADMATIC for duct and cable tray design, as well as the eShare information management solution.

Ship design solution implementation – 4 phases to success

It is not news to shipbuilders that there are benefits to be gained from modern design solutions and a data-driven approach to shipbuilding: accelerating the time to market, reducing costs, and shortening lead-times to name a few. What is holding shipyards and ship design offices back from implementing these clearly beneficial solutions?
