The semiautomatic process is based on a unique “node modeling” concept from laser scans to an intelligent, spec-driven piping model. Using this process, only valves, nozzle connections, and in-line components are placed within the PanoMap® laser scan database from piping libraries. The connecting pipe segments are transferred from an automatic pipe cylinder/elbow generation process. The resulting piping model is fully intelligent and is transferred to Plant 3D as a native Plant 3D drawing and database.
