CADWorx Plant & Structure
2D & 3D Design Seminars

These Seminars are designed to teach the effective use and functionality of the latest CADWorx Plant and CADWorx Structure software, applied to plant design work.

You will learn how to make the most of the program's capabilities, such as quickly building and editing models in a 3D environment and generating 2D drawings and isometrics from them.

We also cover topics that, although not difficult in concept, can be time-consuming to learn on your own, such as specification management, program controls and settings.

Although CADWorx software is easy to use, there are many methods, tricks and techniques that will improve your productivity and your ability to generate the drawings you need as efficiently as possible.

This seminar is the best of its kind, placing a very strong focus on plant design using well-developed real-world examples.

5-Day Course Summary

The primary focus is on learning through direct hands-on usage of the latest CADWorx Plant and Structure software.

This user-level course is for design engineers and plant designers involved in the design of piping, equipment, HVAC and steel, who want to learn how to use CADWorx Plant Professional to create comprehensive, multi‐discipline 3D plant models and produce deliverables from these. Attendees of this course must have knowledge of industrial piping design and knowledge of 3D plant design CAD concepts.

Principle Aims
After completing this course, you should be able to:
 Create 3D piping models and generate 2D layout drawings from them
 Generate automatic isometrics using ISOGEN
 Modify the default CADWorx Plant specifications and generate new specifications
 Create Raceway, using the HVAC module
 Create steel frames, bracing and plates using CADWorx Structure
 Create pumps and vessels using the Equipment module
 Generate Bills of Material for use in GA’s
