ASD Global Announces Pipe Router Interoperability with Intergraph CADWorx®

Sep 24 2012 — ASD Global and Intergraph announced today they have completed integration between their Pipe Router and CADWorx ® products, respectively. This integration brings the value of 3D interference-free automated piping design to the CADWorx plant design platform. This interface adds to the successful interoperability ASD already provides for Intergraph SmartPlant® 3D and PDS®, further strengthening its position as the only truly platform independent vendor of knowledge based automation engineering and design solutions for front end engineering and design (FEED).

ASD’s Pipe Router is a tool for piping designers to build 3D models more effectively and with higher quality by leveraging a comprehensive knowledge base. ASD Pipe Router can read the CADWorx equipment and structures and assist designers to rapidly develop a 3D piping model. In today’s project environment of short schedules, multiple changes and junior designers, the capability to incorporate changes automatically and rapidly design pipe based on a standards that can be applied by all, becomes a necessity.

Now, designers and engineers equipped with both ASD’s Pipe Router and Intergraph’s CADWorx can streamline their work process for piping design during the FEED and Detail design stages of a project in reducing the iterative process during piping studies and changes in the P&ID’s. ASD and Intergraph are working together to bring greater value and increased productivity to our customers projects.
