What's new?

CADISON® Steel Layout Module

The new Steel Layout Module integrates 3D modeling and layout functionality in CADISON®. Customers can now create steel structures required in plant design and easily visualize the plant layout directly in CADISON® instead of using 3rd party solutions. With this module, users can create custom assemblies (editable) such as ladders, staircases, platforms, rails, water tank and generate GA drawings / layout plans and parts lists.

CADISON® Electric-Designer Module

CADISON® 3D-Designer

New features and enhancements in our 3D module help in improved visualization, ability to createconstruction sets (2D/3D objects), enhanced isometrics generation etc. further improving project engineering efficiency.

  Integrated Assemblies  

Users can now create an "integrated construction sets" which contains multi-graphic representations (such as P&ID and 3D).

  Visualization of Insulation & Collision areas  

Users can define the color and transparency of the insulation and collision graphics for better 3D graphical representation of an object.

  Object Snap for Insulation representation  

Possibility to select insulation graphics to snap with the objects at the time of placement. New features visualize the markers of insulation graphics for easy selection similar to the selection of base bodies.
