SupportModeler™ for PDS® can build your company's standards into flexible libraries of pipe support assemblies. Assembly libraries define the detailed graphics for 3D modeling, the rules for sizing and placement and everything needed to create automatic fabrication drawings for each support in a project. SupportModeler will accelerate modeling and detailing of both standard and engineered pipe supports. The software enables integration of the modeling of pipe hangers with the rest of the plant design.
Generate quality details for standard or engineered supports with SupportModeler's fabrication drawing system – saving the time it takes to draw manually.
Speed placement and ease checking effort with out-of-the-box "smart" libraries.
Manage Complex Projects
Manage large projects with thousands of supports that can scale to any size project.
Improve Data Accuracy
Integrate the detailed pipe support design process into the rest of the plant by using SupportModeler in the PDS environment.
Protect Legacy Data
Protect legacy data by migrating paper-based company standards into your intelligent 3D CAD design systems.
Minimize expensive rework in the field due to interference between pipe supports and other plant structures and equipment.
Bring the goal of pre-assembled and pre-installed pipe supports one step closer with individual, annotated drawings for both standard and custom supports.
Intelligent components allow review, reporting and interface to material management systems.
Extensive delivered libraries make SupportModeler productive out of the box, with user-created custom libraries added as needed to improve productivity.
Deliverables to the O/O
The O/O can enjoy reduced risk for schedule slippage, accurate data for information handover and up-to-date data as sustained during operations for revamp projects.
CloudWorx PDS is the most efficient and popular plug-in software for using as-built point cloud data – captured by laser scanners – directly within PDS.
FrameWorks Plus is a 2D/3D engineering tool that allows you to build models with associated intelligence. FrameWorks Plus fully supports PDS.
FrameWorks Plus interfaces to other applications, including PDS. PDS is a comprehensive, intelligent computer-aided design/engineering (CAD/CAE) application for plant design, construction, and operations.
