Your team needs to be able to complete accurate outfitting models in a way that works best with your existing workflows. Moving seamlessly to the outfitting stage, minimizes rework and can fundamentally impact how your design and engineering teams approach a project. ShipConstructor Outfitting offers a complete set of tools for piping, HVAC, electrical, equipment, penetrations, production detail reports, and build strategies.
Pipe is a complete production design package for pipe systems. Its pipe modeling capability is spec-driven based on a user-defined parametric catalog of pipe stocks and standards with logical connections between parts in the model. It features a powerful constraint-based modeling system which allows intuitive changes to existing piping systems. Pipe spools can be defined which are carried over into production for the creation of spool drawings and inclusion in the build strategy for pre-outfitting.
Pipe allows the piping systems within a ShipConstructor project to be used within other business processes, and applications. This is accomplished through an export to the PCF format from within a ShipConstructor production drawing.
You are also able to check and validate the ShipConstructor 3D pipe model against 2D schematics generated in standalone P&ID software including AutoCAD P&ID. The validation is performed using neutral formats in order to allow clients more flexibility in the choice of P&ID software.
Design parametric supports based on shipyard standards. Supports are associated with pipe and pipe hangers as well as foundation structure to constrain and automatically adapt to design changes as the project progresses. The ability to generate support fabrication drawings linked to the model provides a smooth transition from engineering to production.
HVAC (Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning) integrates with all of the other ShipConstructor modules and encourages collaboration between departments. HVAC can be based on a parametric catalog of stocks or can be driven by on-the-fly item creation depending on the client’s needs. The software employs the same constraint-based modeling engine used in Pipe.
Electrical is a 3D modeling and production system for wireways, cable trays, supports, cables and transits. It features an associative 3D model connecting allocated space to individual wireways, cable trays, supports and subsequent cables. Associative production documentation can be generated from the model including cable pull schedules and reports. The cables within the model are automatically routed within the ShipConstructor environment according to EMC ratings, minimum bend radius and more.
Penetrations allow the creation of intelligent penetrations through structural members. The parametric spec-based penetration standards support features such as multi-pipe (and HVAC) penetrations and penetration accessory items.
