Intergraph Smart® Isometrics

Intergraph Smart® Isometrics, powered by Isogen®, is an easy-to-use yet powerful Microsoft® Windows®-based, specification-driven, pipe-sketching application for the as-built plant.

Designed to meet the design and documentation challenges of EPCs, fabricators, and owner operators, Intergraph Smart® Isometrics is a versatile 2D design product that plays an important role in the production and transfer of piping data along the Digital Isometric Value Chain.

Design time equals money. Why spend hours producing isometric drawings using paper and pencil or 2D CAD systems when you can use Smart Isometrics and do it in minutes? Smart Isometrics is simple to use and easy to learn, requiring minimal training. You simply sketch the pipe; add any desired components such as flanges, valves, gaskets, and bolts; dimension the pipe; and then let Smart Isometrics do the rest.

Smart Isometrics collects important piping data and documents as you work, storing all versions as your design or as-built condition changes. It comes ready to integrate with Microsoft Power BI for the creation of sophisticated reports and dashboards. The Smart Isometrics data store and API is "cloud ready" and can form part of any digital transformation of workflows.

Why Smart Isometrics?

Easy to Use and Produces Accurate Results

Smart Isometrics is a standalone solution that is user-friendly so minimal training is required. It is a quick and easy implementation for users. It also reduces errors for increased accuracy.

Improved Productivity

The user will have improved productivity through automation of drawing production -- eliminating time consuming activities - and reduced manual editing time.

Integrates with Leading Plant Design Systems

This generates benefits from standardizing on certain systems across specific operations and streamlining data and documentation collection. This will help gain productivity in bi-directional usage of piping data.

Supports Data Centric workflows

The information in a piping isometric is important in many workflows and the ability to re-use data in order to generate different documents for different purposes minimizes rework, errors and drafting time. Smart Isometrics supports an API which allows other applications -- such as Microsoft Power BI -- to access the data -- parts lists, weld counts, line lengths and so on.


We have discovered that it is very important to leverage technology to improve productivity and the Intergraph Smart Isometrics application has proved to be a sound investment for Keppel Shipyard.

Key Features

Automation of Drawings

Enables sketching of individual pipelines or piping systems in only minutes and generation of isometric drawings in seconds. Includes templates for production of check, fabrication, and erection-type drawings

Document As-Built Piping Systems

When isometric documents do not exist, you can use Smart Isometrics to capture as-built piping systems electronically -- it's no longer necessary to use pencil and paper. Smart Isometrics is integrated with CloudWorx® so that you can create accurate piping isometrics from laser scans, without the need for an intermediate 3D model.

Compatible with Leading Plant Design Systems

Smart Isometrics automates the conversion of reference data from a variety of plant design systems. Following a brief implementation period during which the specific structure of the data is described to the software, the conversion process takes only minutes. Smart Isometrics’ ability to receive reference data in this way allows it to work closely with leading 3D plant design systems. Smart Isometrics uses the same Isogen® software as other PPM systems and can read / edit piping data created by those systems, and create new drawings using the corporate standard drawing style. Many 3rd party systems also support Isogen data file format -- the Piping Component File or PCF so Smart Isometrics can work with piping data from almost any source.
