An AutoCAD-based fit-for-purpose tool for creating concrete and steel structure designs named CADWorx® Structure has just been released by Intergraph® Process, Power & Marine. The tool was also created for engineers who model plant buildings, pipe racks, offshore topsides, and industrial structures that are part of the process, power, and manufacturing plant world.
This solution has been developed with end users in mind at every decision point and includes the targeted tools needed to create revenue-driven plant structure models very easily and quickly. Just as CADWorx Plant Professional provides an easy-to-use solution for piping designers, CADWorx Structure is focused on excelling in structural modeling and design. While other structural software packages are overrun with options and add-ons a structural designer will never use, CADWorx Structure has been purpose built to deliver structural designs with virtually no technical and administrative overhead.
“We are very happy to include CADWorx Structure into the CADWorx Plant Design Suite, and we are certain it fills the industry’s need for a purpose-built structural design solutions,” said Intergraph CADWorx & Analysis Solutions President Rick Allen. “CADWorx has been unique in delivering effective and easy-to-use solutions to customer’s problems, and we will continue to expand CADWorx into other 3D modeling markets in the coming years.
“The industry has spoken: CADWorx is the answer.”
