Intergraph® has released upgrades for its next-generation plant, offshore and material handling design solutions, collectively known as Smart 3D
Intergraph® has released upgrades for its plant, offshore and material handling design solutions, SmartPlant® 3D, SmartMarine® 3D and SmartPlant 3D Materials Handling Edition, collectively known as Smart 3D.
All three Smart 3D 2011 R1 solutions are available to customers in the process, power, offshore and marine industries.
Smart 3D extended its 3D modeling capabilities to address the needs of the offshore design and fabrication industry. Specialized Advanced Plate Systems (APS) quickly and efficiently model complex nodal connections for offshore topsides structure composed of ring plates, continuity plates, base plates, transition plates, cap plates, and more. Complex member end-cuts for welded connections can be applied to the various configurations typical in offshore projects from front-end engineering design through steel cutting.
Smart 3D 2011 R1 customers now have additional licensing flexibility to combine any of the three applications – SmartPlant 3D, SmartMarine 3D and SmartPlant 3D Materials Handling Edition – with any other Smart 3D license.
The advantages of Smart 3D licensing flexibility include reduced administrative costs; additional features available to the plant market from running the marine product; built-up members; and construction management. By upgrading to the latest release, users will now be able to have access to all functionalities of Intergraph's integrated Smart 3D solutions.
