Plant 3D software for piping engineers

An Autodesk software package called Plant 3D was recently installed at the Witteveen+Bos office in Atyrau, Kazakhstan. The software enables piping engineers to improve the quality of their piping and plant designs in less time. Besides piping and equipment, Plant 3D is also suitable for engineering civil structures such as roads, underground piping, buildings, platforms, stairs, ladders and foundations.

After a design is completed, the 3D model can be converted to Navisworks and checked for clashes. The results can be presented to clients and stakeholders using virtual reality glasses. Plant 3D is based on Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology. Engineering companies in Kazakhstan have been required to use BIM technology since 2016.
