Diagram and P&ID
– 3D model integration
2D reference drawings are an important part
of the diagram – users can emphasize the location of certain parts of the diagram symbols
compared to layout of blocks or floor plans for
example.
2D reference drawings can now be clipped. The
required area of a larger 2D view can be selected with a box and used as a reference drawing
to create a diagram on top of it. This makes it
easier to keep document readability at a high
level.
Comparing diagrams and 3D models can now
be adjusted by selecting one, several or all diagrams for comparison with 3D models. This
way the user can check only part of the whole
3D model that is relevant for his/her current
task and avoid unnecessary checks of other diagrams.
Diagrams can be used for visualization of 3D
modeling progress. For example, if pipelines
are connected in 3D, connected lines can be
highlighted in the corresponding diagram. This
makes it is very simple to check and follow the
status of congruence.

The user can now easily generate cross section
views for inspection of cable ways and penetration fill rates and attach them to drawings.
Cross section views can be generated for cable
ways at the selected segment and selected penetrations (including sealed penetrations, for example Roxtec type). It can be used for inspecting fill rates, cable assignment in segregations
on the cable way or in penetrations.
It is possible to attach the cross section views to
Plant Modeller drawings to provide additional
information for installation on site.

In the last decade the amount of retrofit/revamp projects has steadily increased. Brownfield projects, changes in technology and
the expansion of production are all factors
that place increasingly high demands on design tools. The Cadmatic Laser Scan Modeller
presents an integrated solution for seamless
use of data from laser scanners to 3D models
and construction data.

Laser Scan Modeller
– integrated solution for
Point Clouds in 3D model

New Laser Scan Modeller available!

Gain efficiency in projects with Cadmatic Laser Scan Modeller – now you can utilize point
clouds directly in the 3D design tool at design
time using familiar tools. Benefit from viewing and examining existing plant layout when
sketching the new layout, use point clouds for
reference in measuring and fitting, while designing new items in detail or remodelling existing. While remodelling you can directly use settings, library and components of Cadmatic for
correct attributes and materials. Designers can
decide at design time what needs to be remodelled – if anything, and minimize design errors.

Benefits of using
laser scanning technologies
■■ Reduce time for survey, operation down time
at the client’s facility and need for field trips
in potentially hazard environment
■■ Fewer unknowns and asumptions regarding
existing construction, great descrease of rework due to instant availability of acurate dimensions and spatial geometry
■■ Scope of changes can be estimated quickly

■■ Lack of as-build electronic documentation
available from the owner/Operator is no longer a need or concern

Key features
■■ Intelligent map of scanners with annotations
■■ Active/inactive filters to boost performance
■■ Perspective bubble views presenting correct
depth in view

■■ Create intelligent 3D components using
specs and library

ÎÎ Example of modelling using bubble view

After receiving point clouds from the scanner
software the Cadmatic project administrator
can import the point clouds into Cadmatic 3D
Plant Design software and publish them in the
project.
New views have been introduced for more efficient handling of point clouds: a scanner map
for indicating the location of scanners on top
of the layout, bubble views for photorealistic
viewing and referencing and detail views that
will update view box limits intelligently for the
selected point cloud.
Reflecting the limitation of hardware capabilities to handle the huge amounts of data within point clouds – the software will scale point
clouds visualized in 3D shaded views using active/inactive filtering of scanners and adjust limits for detailed views.

page

While working with point clouds the user can
activate the required area with the scanner
map, select bubble views and detailed views
that optimally show the required area and start
doing the layout of the 3D model. It is possible
to select points for snapping in the point cloud
and use the “fit to point cloud” functionality – to
model 3D cylinders, specification driven pipes
or other componets. Further this model can be
used for extraction of project documentation
for construction.

Chalmers LLC, UAE implements Cadmatic
In October 2013 Chalmers selected Cadmatic
for their 3D modelling purposes after a thorough consultation process. Immediately after start-up they used Cadmatic to successfully design two identical LQ modules for an
ongoing project. They have been particularly
impressed with Cadmatic’s ability to ensure
clash-free design work.

Established in 1977 in the United Arab Emirates
(UAE), Chalmers is active throughout Central
and South Asia, the African Continent and the
Arabian Peninsula, with design, engineering, logistical and workshop facilities in the UAE, and
offices in Oman, Bahrain, Qatar and India.
Chalmers is a highly diversified engineering and
trading organisation, with a significant involvement in, but not limited to, the marine and offshore industry.

Chalmers specializes in providing turnkey solutions for accommodation outfitting, including all associated electronic, electrical, air conditioning, refrigeration and plumbing activities
and has over 35 years of unrivalled experience
in newbuild outfitting, major conversions and
renewal and refurbishing of accommodation
onboard offshore platforms and vessels of all
kinds.

Modelling LQ modules
with Cadmatic

Being a turnkey living quarters (LQ) contractor,
co-ordination of all services was always a challenge and with increased construction com-

Chalmers selected Cadmatic in 2013 after considerable deliberation. The software’s ease of
handling architectural components was a major plus point in this regard.

After installation Chalmers designers with the
guidance of the Cadmatic support team took
up the challenge of modelling two identical LQ
modules for an ongoing project. Chalmers had

to carry out the modelling of steel, HVAC, E&I,
piping items and also wanted to test Cadmatic out for architectural items such as partitions,
ceilings, insulation, furniture and equipment.
The strategy was to do the first module in 2D
and transport it to Cadmatic to check its compatibility, while the second module was done
totally in Cadmatic. Subsequently from the Cadmatic model, 2D drawings were generated for
construction and were found to be suitable
and clash free. Despite some initial challenges
Chalmers was successful in meeting their end
goal.

equipment types can be readily inserted into
the model and located as per the GA plans.

3. Generate of accurate bills of materials for
all project materials

The second phase of testing was to check the
MTO’s for architectural items, the quality of
the 2D production drawings, spool drawings
and various tagging requirements, which also
proved effective.

The components can also be easily customized
to suit new project specifications. Apart from
architectural components, Chalmers have custom made standard components of spiral ducting, pvc sanitary piping, cable trays, cable ladders & fittings built as per dimensions provided
by our suppliers.
