Intergraph CADWorx Plant Design Suite Training
The CADWorx Plant Professional classes are designed to teach the effective use and functionality of the latest CADWorx Plant software, applied to plant design work.
The User 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.
The course also covers 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 Plant 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 class is the best of its kind, placing a very strong focus on plant design using well-developed real-world examples.
Configuring working environment; basic software operation; creation of 3D piping, equipment, and steel models; effective modeling techniques and model management;
material management utilizing export, live database, and BOM back annotation in the drawing; 2D orthographics utilizing 3D clipping, sheet set manager, and 2D representation;
automatic isometric generation; specification and library basics; creation of custom components utilizing standard piping shapes, multi-end condition shapes, and user shapes.

ISOGEN Basic Training
Isogen is built into CADWorx and mastering it takes years of experience. This class is designed to teach one how to set up, configure and produce piping isometric fabrication drawings. It will begin by using the templates included with CADWorx to set up Isogen Styles. From there the class will teach users how to customize the title blocks and bills of materials. It will then provide instruction on many configuration switches in the options editor and some of the many of the Alternative Text entries that control the content and annotation on isometric drawings. Finally, some methods and best practices associated with producing productions drawings will be taught.

CAESAR II Software Overview and Hands On "How-To" Training
The goal of this two day course is to get a firsthand look at the power of CAESAR II while demonstrating the ease-of-use. This course will provide a two day basic overview of the software while giving the user the opportunity to have a hands on experience in running CAESAR II. At the end of the two days, each attendee will be left with the basic understanding of CAESAR II, how to build an accurate model, generate detailed stress calculations and create the necessary deliverables for a stress engineer.
Day 1 (AM) - CAESAR II General Overview and Set-up: During this session, ECE will walkthrough CAESAR II and demonstrate the 'best practices' during set-up. This will include how to organize the software and files to insure smooth model creation.
Day 1 (PM) - CAESAR II Building a Basic Model: During this session, ECE will provide the necessary hands-on CAESAR II software training to build a basic model. ECE will start from the beginning and go all the way through to generating stress calculations and the necessary reports.
Day 2 (AM) - CAESAR II Building an Advanced Model: During this session, ECE will look at a more advanced model techniques in CAESAR II including supports, restraints, spring hangers, etc. In addition, ECE will use this model to analyze and find the most optimized solution to meet engineering requirements.
Day 2 (PM) - CAESAR II Deliverables: During this session,ECE we will finish up from our hands-on sessions and look at the deliverables that are generated by CAESAR II
NOTE: This is not a Theory Course or a Detailed Technical Training class. This courseis a CAESAR II Softare Overview and How To course for a pipe stress engineer.
CAESAR II Statics and Dynamics Training
The CAESAR II Statics and Dynamics classes cover proper system modeling guidelines, methods of static and dynamic analysis of piping systems, evaluation of system designs, and effective approaches to system redesign.
The course is broken down into half-day sessions, each covering a major topic. Each of these sessions include a lecture, or discussion followed by a 'hands-on' exercise which reinforces the session topic.
Each attendee with their own personal computer and a copy of the CAESAR II pipe stress analysis program for use during the seminar. The complete course lasts five days; three days for modeling and static analysis, and two days for dynamic analysis.
