New Capabilities Focused on Better Supporting Project Lifecycle
PITTSBURGH, PA (August 28, 2006) — Quantapoint is pleased to announce that final beta testing for PRISM 3D and QuantaCAD for PDMS has started. PRISM 3D is the most advanced technology available for sharing and accessing dimensional and other information from plants digitized using laser scanning and QuantaCAD enables this digitized plant to be accessed within AVEVA PDMS.
Both PRISM 3D and QuantaCAD for PDMS incorporate a number of new capabilities based on client feedback that are designed to better support the project lifecycle in the oil and gas, refining, petrochemical, chemical and power industries. Major new capabilities include:
Removal of visual distortion when viewing 3D laser data as a 2D image. This makes the data more intuitive and easier to use.
Hover text that shows the location of cursor in the digitized plant, making it faster and easier to extract information.
Tag points that can save a 3D location in the digitized plant. This enables specific 3D locations – such as tie points and design points – to be identified and easily shared
Estimate pipe information, such as centerline and diameter, with a single click. This improves the efficiency of finding information.
Coloring the digitized plant by depth to visually show the distance from the user.
Load the digitized plant around a CAD model with a single click, eliminating the time and confusion of searching for information.
And many more...
PRISM and QuantaCAD for PDMS help you extract the greatest value from the digitized plant to minimize risks throughout the entire project lifecycle. The result is reduced costs, optimized schedules, increased quality and improved safety, with project rework being reduced by more than 80% among other benefits.
