3D Modeling

3D Modeling

Using the industry’s leading software, modeling can be done efficiently and accurately, be it directly from an acquired point cloud using Leica’s Cyclone software or by further modeling into an intelligent model using CADWorx. AIMS has modeling technicians in-house to perform tasks at any of these stages, providing you with your requested models or designs by your designated deadlines.

Cyclone

The inherent completeness of 3D point clouds represents one of their major advantages over other sources of geometric information. Cyclone’s unique Object Database Client/Server software architecture provides the highest performance environment for laser scanning projects. Cyclone software makes it easy for users to manage data efficiently in databases. 

This versatile, powerful module enables professionals to use point clouds directly, to process them into objects for robust export into CAD (and other applications), and to allow robust import of data from CAD (and other applications). Cyclone has the industry’s largest, most complete and automated set of tools for accurately modeling 3D point clouds as CAD geometry or as meshes for engineering, surveying, construction, architectural and related applications.

CADWorx

Intergraph CADWorx Plant Design Suite is an integrated, complete AutoCAD-based software series for plant design that provides intelligent 3D models, advanced levels of automation, and easy-to-use drafting tools. The comprehensive series of design tools includes structural steel, equipment, process and instrument diagrams, and design review, plus automatic isometrics and bill of materials.

Since its introduction, CADWorx has revolutionized the plant design industry with its ease of use, flexibility, interconnectivity, and scalability.

Advantages

CADWorx is quick and easy to set up and use, so you can start designing right away. The bi-directional links between CADWorx and analysis programs for pipes and vessels enable designers and engineers to easily share information while keeping the drawings, models, and related information continuously synchronized as changes are made. And, the fast processing and highly refined user-interface features in CADWorx empower users to work efficiently together, even on large models.

  • Quick and easy generation of isometrics.
  • Engineering drawings with as-built information can be created.
  • Having a 3D model helps when planning upgrades and maintenance as dimensions of surrounding areas can be obtained without physically being on site.
