Intergraph's new consolidated design software solution will help oil and gas companies model complex offshore topside structures and create automated engineering deliverables

Intergraph Executive Vice President EMIA Philippe Marceau, during a press conference with industry journalists at the ONS Norway 2013 conference, presented a preview of the upcoming Intergraph Smart 3D 2014, which boasts hundreds of enhancements and several innovative capabilities to further enhance user productivity. Marceau announced during the press conference that Intergraph’ s Arne Monsholm on Wednesday will demonstrate how its design solutions, SmartPlant® 3D, SmartMarine® 3D and SmartPlant® 3D Materials Handling Edition, have been consolidated into a single solution that will help oil and gas companies model complex offshore structures and vessels and create automated engineering deliverables.

Marceau explained during the press conference that the rule-based concept of Smart 3D enables more efficient design, with better quality and design integrity than ever. In addition, upgraded Model Data Reuse (MDR) capabilities enable s enables efficient reuse of design that is not possible in any other 3D CAD application.

Users can reuse FEED or old designs with different catalogs and specifications, by leveraging Smart 3D’s unique rule re-use, tag renaming and specification interchange. Also, enhanced 3D interoperability capabilities enable the use of 3D data from multiple foreign CAD systems in conjunction with native Smart 3D models. Smart 3D is the only system in the world that allows interoperability with both graphics and data of foreign CAD models, making it an ideal solution for reva mp and joint venture projects.
