Intergraph Smart® 3D CAD Software – a next generation, data-centric, rule-driven solution – is specifically designed to deliver mission-critical requirements. It breaks through barriers imposed by traditional technologies to enable a truly iterative engineering design environment. Smart 3D provides all capabilities needed to design plant, marine and materials handling facilities and then maintain their 3D “as-built” representations, which offers a competitive edge to all businesses.
What is 3D CAD software and how does it work?
3D Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software assists in the creating, modifying, analyzing or optimizing a design. Hexagon PPM is the leading provide of CAD software to companies that design, build and operate industrial facilities. Primarily, 3D CAD helps with detailed engineering but is found throughout the engineering process from conceptual design to facility maintenance and operation. For example, design and visualization has a huge role to play in representing physical assets in the digital twin concept.
