HOUSTON, Oct. 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CADWorx & Analysis Solutions announces the release of CADWorx® Plant 2018 with an expanded range of DWG file-based tools for intelligent 2D and 3D plant design. Including the compatibility with AutoCAD® and BricsCAD® platforms, this latest release provides several other enhancements including auto router support for default elbow selection for faster and more efficient non-standard design work and a more intuitive sloped router with additional options to more easily route gravity-drained lines and place pipe supports, eliminating the need to manually rotate pipe support assemblies on sloped lines. CADWorx Plant also provides CAESAR II compatibility, enabling users to model in CADWorx Plant and leverage the existing geometry with the latest version of CAESAR II stress analysis software. “By continuously advancing our CADWorx solutions, we provide our clients the most complete tools for efficient plant design and help them achieve their goals by addressing unique challenges faced in every project,” said Rick Allen, president of CADWorx & Analysis Solutions at Hexagon PPM.
