Cambridge, UK – 2 December 2015: AVEVA today announced the commercial launch of AVEVA Everything3D™ 2.1 (AVEVA E3D™). The release builds on the software’s proven ability to deliver time and cost savings for brownfield and revamp projects by increasing productivity for EPCs and Owner Operators. Enhanced capabilities such as PointCloud demolition and displaying laser data directly on drawings enable designers to interact with 3D models in ways that have not been previously possible. Optimised design efficiency is delivered through an enhanced user interface which reduces learning curves and moves projects more quickly into production.
‘In the current economic climate where Capex spend is reduced, life extension of existing assets is a priority for our customers,’ said Dave Wheeldon, CTO, AVEVA. ‘Listening to that message we have put added focus on capabilities which can transform how customers perform brownfield projects, to increase productivity, improve quality and drive down project time. Brownfield projects range widely in scale with many of short duration, so being able to mobilize the systems rapidly is really important, and doing so while ensuring quality and accuracy. That has been the essence of further developing AVEVA E3D.
‘The advances in technology and user experience within this release continue to demonstrate why AVEVA E3D is the most innovative and efficient 3D design software available today and is ideal for brownfield projects of any size.’
Rick Standish, VP Solution Strategy added, ‘AVEVA E3D 2.1 takes built-in laser functionality to a new level. It includes the introduction of HyperBubble™ technology that allows the user to work in a fully immersed as-built environment. Using the laser data to model the demolition sequence prior to refit is a major step forwards which together with a unique “Laser in Draw” ensures that up-to-date laser data and design information can be used to make 2D deliverables. These unique features mean that the need to remodel existing plants prior to revamp and drawing generation has been removed and considerable man hour savings can be made on projects. This ensures that AVEVA E3D is by far the leading tool when it comes to efficient execution of brownfield projects.’
Other enhancements to usability include in-canvas commands, redesigned structural and supports modules, and improved P&ID/3D integration.
