CADWorx 2019 SP1 Released - Now includes BricsCAD Platinum

Our new Service Pack 1 release of CADWorx Plant Professional now includes a full license of BricsCAD, our new DWG-based AutoCAD-equivalent. Unlike AutoCAD, BricsCAD is a true 64-bit program that loads and performs much faster that AutoCAD and works great with CADWorx!

Hexagon Acquires Bricsys; Enters BIM and AEC World

Hexagon AB was already familiar to the AEC industry, with its Leica laser and GPS technologies, and now it owns Bricsys's impressive DWG-native CAD and BIM platforms, making Hexagon a new major global player in AEC software.

CADWorx is already compatible with BricsCAD, providing a platform that is far less expensive than AutoCAD. This acquisition will enable closer integration between CADWorx and other Bricsys technology. This is good news all around for CodeCAD customers.

CADWorx Design Review Professional Released

This latest release is a significant upgrade to the CADWorx model visualization and publishing platform that improves collaboration among multiple software by utilizing tools for project review, markups, and field walk throughs, helping to reduce engineering and design time and lower overall project costs.

With CADWorx Design Review Professional, users can create realistic visualizations and access intelligent information regarding model components. The software’s powerful rendering tool provides the ability to adjust color, transparency and model shadows, and with the flexible selection sets, the user can adjust settings for single
components as well as for line numbers, Xrefs and other elements. The software’s intuitive interface provides fast and smooth navigation and manipulation of even the largest, most complex models. All model data, such as component names and descriptions and line numbers, are easy to access. This allows users to make changes or add questions to the visualization through each phase of the design and easily track project progress through visualization of components based on model data.

CAESAR II now includes new B31J correlations

"More applicable data" is now directly accessible in CAESAR II by downloading "B31J Essentials" from the Intergraph SmartSupport website.

By downloading and installing this application, you can automatically create a new version of your CAESAR II model with corrections that address known deficiencies in the B31.3 code, including SSIs, SIFs and flexibility properties of intersections and bends. These corrections are based on the R&D of Tony Paulin, the original author of CAESAR II, in conjunction with his technical team at Paulin Research Group and ASME.

ASME re-published Tony's correlations in their own paper (STP PT-073), and now reference these in the newly-minted B31J, making them 100% code-compliant. The implication is that you will generate more accurate results to avoid fixing problems that don't really exist (saving money), and avoid missing undisclosed problems that do (avoiding safety issues).

This is included with your CAESAR II software license if it is up-to-date. The download will only work with CAESAR II versions 2017 HF2 or later. If you are running CAESAR II 2017 but have not updated to HF2, you can download and access this update through Intergraph SmartSupport.

If you're familiar with the FEATools software, the B31J Essentials is a subset of this application and capabilities.

Click here to login to SmartSupport.

The B31J Essentials download is found under: View Downloads > CAESAR II > Freeware Tools and Utilities > Supported Freeware Utilities

The HF2 download is found in SmartSupport under: View Downloads > CAESAR II > Service Packs and Fixes
