3D data-rich conceptual models – parametric and automated 3D modeling of Equipment and Structures combined with auto-routing of pipe and electrical components, automated calculation of foundations, and light engineering analytics. Design and engineer faster and produce more accurate estimates earlier in the design.

OptiPlant utilizes automation, visualization and augmented intelligence technologies which enables teams to fundamentally change how people work and what they spend time working on. Our clients now start most projects in 3D immediately – using OptiPlant which is more nimble and efficient than 2D or detail engineering tools. Spend less time on repetitive engineering and design functions and more time creating VALUE through Optioneering a better layout.

Key Features

  • Automatic data-driven 3D modeling of Equipment and Structures from Excel or Neutral files
  • Parametric 3D Equipment and Structures library
  • Auto routing of 3D interference free pipe, cable tray and conduit
  • Automatic calculation of 3D Foundations

 

 

OptiPlant Features: An Overview

 

 

Instantaneous 3D Modeling

3D data-rich conceptual models – parametric and automated 3D modeling of Equipment and Structures combined with auto-routing of pipe and electrical components, automated calculation of foundations, and light engineering analytics. Design and engineer faster and produce more accurate estimates earlier in the design.

How it Works

The Digital Facility

OptiPlant provides the 'birthplace' of your Digital Facility. OptiPlant ingests project design basis data from most standard sources and almost immediately represents it in 3D. Public Domain Knowledge such as engineering standards are always resident in OptiPlant, and OptiPlant provides an accessible place to consolidate Corporate engineering standards and rules.

How it Works 

Rule-Based Engineering

Configurable rules database used to standardize designs and auto-check for compliance. OptiPlant allows users to deviate from the chosen standards and rules and provides real-time notifications that a layout or configuration is non-compliant or may not work. OptiPlant’s extensive knowledge base includes regional rules, design standards for multiple facility types from onshore to offshore to within buildings, and engineering calculations for validation.

How it Works

AI Automation

OptiPlant utilizes proprietary, AI enhanced algorithms to generate thousands of centerlines and then select the best centerline. This autorouting engine automates the design of 3D interference-free pipe, cable tray and conduit and generates the most accurate results in the market today.

How it Works

Completely Interoperable

OptiPlant is interoperable with front-end and detail design tools. OptiPlant provides out-of-the-box integrations to process simulation tools, intelligent P&IDs, mechanical lists, 3D Detail design, point cloud data and more. Extensive ingestion capabilities jump start OptiPlant models with existing data thereby increasing productivity. Easily publish to Excel, XML, and Neutral files such as STP and SDNF

How it Works

Pipe Support Optimizer

OptiPlant offers Pipe Support Optimizer (Opti-PSO), a fully integrated stress analysis, and automatic support location and selection tool. With this product, users can eliminate the manual trial and error steps to determine optimal support locations and automatically validate if a piping system will pass stress.

How it Works

OptiPlant Router in Smart® 3D

OptiPlant has released OptiRouter in Hexagon Smart3D! With this product, users can work within a familiar S3D environment, and still use OptiPlant’s leading 3D interference-free auto-router to efficiently design hundreds of pipe in minutes. The Opti-Router can read S3D equipment and structures, recognize them intelligently, auto-route to nozzles, and then load the pipe into S3D based on the specifications and catalogs. Opti-Router S3D is available today , contact us for more details through connect@optiplant.com
