CADWorx Plant 2012 is considered the classic version of CADWorx and was the last version before the new and improved enhanced piping system was introduced in CADWorx 2013. CADWorx 2012 included performance-enhancing features like the discontinuity palette, new pipe support module, and improved steel capabilities.
Other CADWorx 2012 features for Intergraph CADWorx Equipment include anew center of gravity calculator for equipment, and, for vessels and exchangers, stiffening rings can now be added internally and rings can be oriented about their primary axis.
CADWorx also offers the industry’s first and only true bi-directional links between CAD and engineering analysis tools, linking CADWorx with Intergraph’s industry-leading pipe stress analysis program, CAESAR II, and with Intergraph PV Elite® for pressure vessel and exchanger analysis.
The Intergraph CADWorx Plant Design Suite for process plant design offers intelligent drawing-to-database connectivity, advanced levels of design automation and easy-to-use design tools. Because of these distinct advantages, EPC firms and owner operators in the process, power, water treatment, pharmaceutical, food and beverage and semiconductor industries have rapidly adopted the plant design solution.
