COADE Releases CADWorx ® 2006 Enhanced Plant Design Suite

HOUSTON, JUNE 16, 2005 – COADE announced today the release of CADWorx 2006, an updated edition of the company's software suite for plant design that provides enhanced 2D and 3D plant design capabilities. New tools and features include:

  •         CADWorx Walkthrough – This intuitive tool allows real-time walkthroughs for plant designs. Users can easily distribute their models for review to other Walkthrough users for markup or collaboration comments or create AVI’s for general distribution.
  •         Collision Checking – This new capability in CADWorx Plant Professional provides on-the-fly or point-in-time clash detection. Clash checks can be made in the current model file or against any external reference files. All clashes are instantly marked for review, allowing money saving adjustments before the fabrication or construction phases of a project.
  •         Routines for stairs, ladders and hand rails - These powerful parametric routines in CADWorx Plant Professional allow easy production of stairs, ladders and hand rails. Base plate creation and automatic coping are also included in this release.

    Updates in CADWorx 2006 suite include the following:

  •         CADWorx Equipment, COADE’s parametric equipment package for the creation of 3D equipment, has been enhanced with more components for the creation of vessels, exchangers, tanks and pumps plus bi-directional links to COADE’s PVElite pressure vessel analysis package.

    .        CADWorx Plant Professional includes an improved ISOGEN interface, enhanced annotation capabilities plus the introduction of the 2DREP and VIEWBOX commands for the parametric creation of 2D plans, section and elevation views of the model.

    CADWorx 2006 also takes full advantage of the latest features in AutoCAD 2006 including dynamic blocks that allow users to change symbols from one representation to another without re-inputting information, thereby maintaining database integrity. Also, intuitive drafting, dimensioning and annotation tools have been added. When linked to the Heads-Up Design (HUD) interface, these make it even easier and quicker to produce designs. The 2D output capabilities have been enhanced with the addition of workspaces and tool palettes that can be loaded on demand. These provide a more organized user interface and allow more control over designer desktops.

    CADWorx offers intelligent drawing-to-database connectivity, advanced levels of automation and easy-to-use design techniques. Because of these distinct advantages, it has been rapidly adopted by EPC firms and owner operators in the process, power, offshore, pulp and paper, shipbuilding, water treatment and the hygienic industries such as food, pharmaceutical, biotechnology and semiconductor sectors. CADWorx leads the industry by offering bi-directional integration between CAD and stress analysis, such as PVElite for vessels and CAESAR II for piping systems.
