The realistic draft of a plant in 3D enhances the visualization of the planning concept of the future plant. In the planning phase we create the plant design step by step using AutoCAD Plant 3D - from the concept to the 3D model. The picture below shows a pilot plant for thermal seawater desalination, which we designed and commissioned.
From the 3D plant model we create parts lists, isometrics and layout drawings.
3D drawings simplify the cooperation and communication between suppliers and customers. Hereby it is possible to improve data transfer, data evaluation and communication between all parties involved with the aim of avoiding misunderstandings.
The renewal or extension of existing plants (also during operation) can be planned in detail using modern CAD software. In order to capture the existing plant, we first scan the plant in 3D using laserscanning methods. In the next step we model new plant components and integrate them into the captured plant. Thus we can effectively discuss the planning concept in project meetings and present necessary changes to decision makers. The picture below shows a captured scan in which new plant components were integrated.
