3D plant design software debuts at SPAR Japan


AVEVA will showcase E3D’s laser scanning capabilities for new-build and revamp projects

AVEVA Group plc said Monday it is sponsoring this week’s SPAR Japan, the region’s annual conference on 3D imaging, where it will showcase its new plant design software with enhanced laser scanning capabilities for both new build and revamp projects.

Cambridge, U.K.-based AVEVA is a leader in engineering design and information management software for the plant, power and marine industries.

The company said its new AVEVA Everything3D (E3D) software eliminates rework on-site by allowing comparison of the original design against the as-built plant, regardless of which scanner system captures the data.

“Plant designers can work with both new design and as-built survey data in the same 3D environment,” AVEVA said. “E3D is able to close the loop between design, fabrication and construction creating huge value for our customers.”

AVEVA also sells plant software under the LFM Software brand acquired from Zoller+Fröhlich (Z+F) in October 2011. LFM Software is widely recognized for its ability to accept data from all brands of 3D laser scanners, and exporting to 3D integrated plant design systems, CAD and Review platforms.

SPAR Japan is being held at the Kawasaki Industry Promotion Hall in Kawasaki, Japan, Wednesday and Thursday, June 5-6. The conference focuses on how 3D can drive productivity, safety improvements and new business using 3D laser scanning, lidar, mobile survey and mapping, augmented reality, dimensional control, CAD/GIS integration, scan-to-BIM, asset management and digital heritage preservation.

“SPAR Japan offers us an excellent opportunity to engage with business leaders and plant engineers interested in the capture of 3D data,” said Eunjoo Park, AVEVA senior vice president, Korea & Japan. “We will share how visitors to SPAR can gain cost and time benefits in the development of both greenfield and brownfield projects.”

AVEVA will also demonstrate its Laser Modeller, which was introduced in 2011 and greatly cuts costs and the time to transform laser scan data into intelligent, as-built 3D plant.

The company’s presentation at SPAR Japan is titled, “AVEVA Point Cloud Solution,” and takes place Wednesday, June 5 at 4:30 p.m. local time, and Thursday, June 6 at 10:30 a.m.
