Intergraph® releases CloudWorx for SmartPlant® Isometrics 2012 R1
Collaboration with Leica Geosystems enables users to quickly build as-built piping isometrics directly from laser scan point clouds

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Intergraph® has released CloudWorx for SmartPlant® Isometrics 2012 R1, a valuable add-on to its SmartPlant Isometrics solution that allows users to quickly create accurate, as-built piping isometrics directly from a laser scan point cloud. CloudWorx for SmartPlant Isometrics 2012 R1 leverages Leica Geosystems' industry-leading Cyclone software technology to efficiently display the laser scan point cloud and navigate through it in a window with measured piping data overlaid graphically, a revolutionary method of creating as-built piping asset documentation. Intergraph and Leica Geosystems are parts of Hexagon.


CloudWorx for SmartPlant Isometrics supports the rapid creation of piping isometric documents using Intergraph ISOGEN®, the world's leading solution for the total automation of piping isometric drawing production. The easily understood sketching functionality and automated drawing creation means CAD or 3D skills are not required, but also allows experienced piping designers to be highly productive in creating as-built piping data.

The software is complementary to 3D model-based solutions based on Smart 3D, PDS® or CADWorx®, since the same ISOGEN software is used to produce the deliverable. Results are consistent and underlying data – regardless of its source ­– can be used to create documentation for inspection of piping systems, including the automated, rule-based placement of inspection location points.

When used in conjunction with SmartPlant Enterprise for Owner Operators (SPO), the comprehensive as-built documentation can be managed to ensure the integrity of the piping asset. SPO adds change management and audit capability when the piping documents are published to the plant engineering data store and maintained through time. With the new SPO TruView integration capability, CloudWorx for SmartPlant Isometrics can use the same point cloud data to create piping documentation as needed for operating and maintaining a facility, or to document the as-built asset in line with industry regulations.

George Labuschagne, senior database administrator with MegChem Engineering and Drafting Services (Pty) Ltd in South Africa, which was involved from concept through beta testing to production release, said, "Gaining the ability to interact with and interrogate scanned point cloud data directly from within SmartPlant Isometrics allows MegChem to deliver isometric drawings to our clients that conform to the highest level of accuracy and integrity. By having this new functionality within SmartPlant Isometrics, a significant amount of time is saved during the modeling as well as the checking phases of producing quality isometric drawings in the fastest allowable time.

"At MegChem, we now use CloudWorx for SmartPlant Isometrics as part of our tool set to maintain our position as an engineering house committed to engineering excellence."

Patrick Holcomb, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine's executive vice president of global business development and marketing, said, "CloudWorx for SmartPlant Isometrics offers a new and better approach to the creation of accurate, as-built piping asset documentation. The emphasis is on producing a practical, usable document for regulatory compliance, planning, inspection and fabrication as quickly and as cost-effectively as possible. Now you can do a traditional plant walkdown, where you can measure anything you can see, all without visiting the facility."

SmartPlant Isometrics, powered by ISOGEN, is the Intergraph solution designed to document piping systems with industry-standard piping isometric drawings, and is ideal for site-based piping engineers and designers. SmartPlant Isometrics can read design isometrics from almost any 3D plant design system, or create new isometrics quickly and accurately from sketches, and it generates a high-quality record for planning, cost estimation, inspection, or design of modifications.
