3D modelling tool for wastewater plant

22 September, 2006 | Supplied by: http://www.halliburton.com/

Optioneer is a 3D modelling software tool that allows users to 'virtually' design, configure and automatically cost multiple options for a water or wastewater treatment plant at the concept design phase. It can produce process flow diagrams (PFDs) on screen using template icons for more than 100 pieces of plant and equipment. Smart data associated with the PFD icons automatically convey dimensions and shape to the 3D images, and each piece of equipment can be 'dragged' and located into the 3D environment. The process of cutting 3D shapes and sizes into the 3D topography is automatic, as is the calculation of cut and fill volumes for preliminary construction and final trim earthworks surfaces.
