CADWorx Design Review allows the review and publishing of CADWorx models by designers, managers, owners and other stakeholders. Discover how you can improve collaboration by utilizing tools for markups, design comments and redlining. By using CADWorx Design Review, users are able to create realistic visualizations and access the intelligent information. Whether it is one model file or multiple model files, the intuitive interface and its performance-based tools make manipulating and moving around even the largest models quick and smooth.

Features include:

Quicker Review Cycles - Collaborate and review designs quicker and more intuitively. By using 3D, you are able to reduce the need to interpret designs from paper printouts and other non-interactive methods. CADWorx Design Review improves collaboration with tools for markups, design comments and redlining.

Stunning Performance - The intuitive interface of CADWorx Design Review and its performance-based design makes manipulating and moving around even the largest models quick and smooth.

Automatic Isometrics - Isometrics drawings can be produced from piping layouts or project databases. CADWorx Plant Professional includes Isogen for automated isometric production.

Ideal for Multi-model Designs - There is no need to manually load the separate model files that make up a design. If files are externally referenced, these are automatically included in the review model.

Accurate Visualization - Powerful visualization tools provide settings for color, transparency and model shadows. With flexible selection sets, it is also possible to adjust settings, not only for single components, but for xref’s, line numbers, etc. – in fact, for any selection set available to the user.

Intelligent Information - Access the same model information as you would within a CADWorx design session. Component names and descriptions, line numbers, weights, and other plant design data are all available.

Editable Animations - Creating informative and stunning animations is simple with CADWorx Design Review. Users can set out animation paths and edit the path line at any point. The view direction on any point of the animation path can also be edited in a combination of the six degrees of freedom, plus view angle.

Interactive Viewing Tools - Explore your 3D models efficiently and informatively with user-friendly volume clipping and 3D cutting planes. Quickly refresh to discover the latest updates from your 3D design environment so that you’re always using the most up-to-date information to make decisions.

Support for BIM - Take advantage of IFC export capability. You can open exported CADWorx models into a BIM collaboration environment.

Publishing and Collaboration - Publish models into various intelligent file formats (IFC, VUE, 3D PDF, CWDR) for collaboration and sharing purposes. Files from multiple project contractors can be brought into the collaboration environment of CADWorx Design Review to be combined into a single sharable file.

Application Areas - CADWorx has links to CAESAR II for pipe stress analysis and PV Elite for equipment analysis, allowing reuse of the 3D model components for a time-saving and accuracy improving workflow solution.
