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.
"As promoted, this has been
the best seminar I've ever attended"
"I've attended a different CADWorx seminar,
and this one is far superior"
- Gain confidence in your modeling abilities; build better models faster
- Get maximum advantage from your software system
- Learn the full capabilities of the software
- Learn techniques that will help you build plant models more quickly & effectively.
5-Day Course Summary
The primary focus is on learning through direct hands-on usage of the latest CADWorx Plant and Structure software.
This course has been produced to teach you how to use CADWorx Plant Professionals features
and utilities to get the best efficiency and productivity gains possible. The course demonstrates
the functionality of combining CADWorx Plant Professional with CAD software to create an
impressive engineering pipework design solution. Starting with a small plant model, training will
gradually build to use more complex commands. As the course progresses, we will use the
features to produce the associated GA’s and isometrics, as well as other required outputs.
To participate effectively, you should have a good working knowledge of 3D CAD software, as
well as a general understanding of process piping systems, in both their terminology and their
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
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
Automatically generate a database,
