Outfitting Detailed Design

All the functionality of detailed 3D modeling – creating 3D models, layout of equipment, routing pipes, HVAC and cable trays, structural units, containment management and model templates. Additionally, it includes a full package of modules for generating production information.

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 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 process with globally distributed teams and ensure IPR safety, allow sharing 3D models with eBrowser and on tablets with eGo and directly use the results of the design phase for the eShare information management portal.

Easy to start from scratch and modify 3D models

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 ones with the aid of few mouse clicks.

Create and use data-rich 3D models

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.
