HOUSTON, TX, Apr 25, 2017 – Intergraph announces the release of CADWorx Structure 2017 R1, a fit-for-purpose solution for designing steel structures and modeling industrial plant buildings, pipe racks, offshore topsides and other structures for process, power and manufacturing facilities. This release adds the option to run on the AutoCAD or BricsCAD platform and provides new advanced capabilities that allow designers and engineers to cite the weight and center of gravity of objects to determine if they can be lifted and transported, export to a detailing tool or structural analysis program by using a CIS/2 file, place gusset plates and connect them to bracing to avoid routing objects through an area, and add openings to any structural object. The release also allows users to annotate structural objects to include a short and long description, part number and tag, material and member size and other details.
