3D facility and equipment modeling play a crucial role in making superior design visualization and plant maintenance and development activities.
Given below a wide array of software & 3d modeling programs which can make a sea change in facility management system.
Incorporated 3D scanners and software make 3d modeling system better. Faro Technologies launched Focus3D X 330 laser scanners which represent point cloud data of assets and facilities and simplify design, build, maintenance, retrofit, and expansion methods.
The building owners can use scene and webShare software to process, circulate, and combine the 3D dataset information online, in actual time.
By preserving 3d data of facilities, it is possible to reduce downtime and repair time. If there is a break down, one can know the exact position, type and length and get it prefabricated off-site to fit it in exact position.
CAD Schroer developed MPDS4 Plant Design and Factory Layout Software. If any modification is made to factory layouts, piping, process designs, or materials handling systems, the software can assess the change in both 2D & 3D formats. This feature facilitates the owners & operators to conceptualize, envisage, and gauge the impact of new machinery and technology prior to set up them.;
MPDS4 can easily deal with several data formats as well as large design through an advanced customization tool.
Smart 3D is developed by Intergraph and it facilitates engineers hail from various localities and disciplines to cooperate with each other in near-real time. Numerous 3D formats are supported in a individual hybrid model, and the rules engine implements reliability, gurantees conformity to design standards as well as makes the recurring tasks automatic. Model Data Reuse facilitates objects to be copied and at the same time restoring relationships and the original design intent.
With Smart 3D, the designs can be optimized designs by improving quality, interoperability, productivity, as well as making the project schedules reduced.
With Bentley’s Integrated Plant Lifecycle (IPL) solution, the information can be distributed through various disciplines across all stages of the asset lifecycle. The set of design, analysis, simulation, and information management software provide huge benefits to the process plant engineering professionals and asset owners.
The software supports the ISO 15926 open industry standard and at the same time provides top-notch change management functionality.
The 3D infrastructure and structural data collection and models can be obtained through the 3D scanning and modeling of simple assets which can create a single environment for facilities management and reduce a major amount of inaccuracies as well as enhance safety, and saving time and money.
