Different types of engineers typically work differently. Though electrical engineers work in a totally different way than mechanical engineers, today’s complex design projects require tighter integration between the two disciplines. As the design is changing at a rapid pace, and products need to be developed quicker, disparate engineering teams MUST work closer together.
This week Rudolf van den Berg takes us through a demo of Smap3D Plant design software.
Bio: Smap3D Plant Design
Smap3D Plant Design is 3D CAD software for fast, easy design of 3D piping systems for mechanical engineering, equipment production and plant design. It provides an integrated software solution for an optimal process chain in plant design. With one specialized program for each process step (Smap3D P&ID, Smap3D Piping and Smap3D Isometric), the required solution can be tailored to individual requirements. The P&ID To-Do-List is a function integrated in Smap3D Plant Design which creates an intelligent connection between S3D P&ID Schematic and 3D piping.
The Department of Trade and Industry (the dti) gave recognition to local design excellence at the 5th annual Furniture Design Competition that was held at the Johannesburg Homemakers Expo, which took place at the Ticketpro Dome from 22-25 February 2018.
MECAD Systems does it again!
Over the course of three full days of SOLIDWORKS World 2018, more than 5,000 members of the SOLIDWORKS community got to attend more than 200 breakout sessions. Atendees were able to gain insight into specific topics or solutions ranging from design to manufacturing; 3D CAD and simulation; electrical design & schematics; communications; collaboration; and data management.
