CAD Weight Reduction

Users of Process Plant and Ship Building design software frequently need to integrate models of large equipment installations and component sub-systems. These usually consist of very large CAD assemblies that can be several hundred Megabytes or even Gigabytes in size. The receiving systems are simply not designed to cope with the integration of such massive CAD assemblies. The main priority of the ship building or process plant designer is simply to reduce file size.

CADfix can quickly simplify large complex CAD assemblies and reduce file size for import into Process Plant and Ship Building software. This helps avoid multiple failed import attempts, saves precious project time and reduces non-productive CAD model rework. Most of these processes can be done in automatic. The CADfix simplification tool will leave enough detail to accurately represent the equipment structure and outer envelope, whilst removing unwanted intricate detail and reducing file size.
