Plant Design Solutions is hosting an all-day hands-on workshop with our DotProduct3D Scanner and process to CADWorx Fieldpipe.  From noon till 1pm the PDS Application Engineers will deliver detailed presentation covering the workflow from the DotProduct3D scanner to Integraph’s Fieldpipe (Lunch will be served).  Space is limited for the seminar at 12:00, please RSVP with This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

However if you are unable to join us for lunch, feel to stop by throughout the morning and afternoon to drive the DotProduct3D scanner and see the workflow to Plant Professional via FieldPipe with the PDS Application Engineers.  If you have a section of pipe out in your truck, we will bring out the DotProduct3D Scanner and send you home with a model.

What is the DotProduct3D Scanner?

A handheld self-contained 3D scanner, based on Android.

  • ·      Tablet-based, 7-inch. Runs off internal battery.
  • ·      Instant data capture and review.
  • ·      Export to all major formats.
  • ·      16 or 32 GB storage, good for up to 5000 scans*

What is CADWorx FieldPipe?

With CADWorx Fieldpipe, users can rapidly create intelligent as-built models directly from scanned plant data. As-built pipe can be routed by selecting just a single point on a pipe run, which cuts out hundreds of time-consuming steps in the as-built creation process.

Piping Design vs. Piping Engineering

by William G. Beazley, PhD, Executive Director, SPED

 

I am often asked about the difference between Piping Design and Piping Engineering <Design>. There is much confusion between the two, particularly since the major piping codes and standards partially address them and certain actions performed by them fall under government licensing for Professional Engineers. The distinction is important as most engineering; Procurement and Construction (EPC) companies employ piping designers on engineering projects who are not qualified under codes or licensing to perform piping engineering without supervision.

I define design as the creation of highly quality assured product definition data. A drawing is little more than a sketch without the extra step of assuring the product will perform to expectations and defined requirements. Piping Designers and Piping Engineers provide assurance from two different bodies of knowledge: Both perform design but in accordance with two sets of requirements.
