New InterBridge Software Creates 3D Infrastructure Information Models

NEOLANT Russia is ready to launch its InterBridge software on the international market. The company is targeting large-scale facilities in areas such as industrial and civil construction. InterBridge performs on-line translations of graphical and semantic 2D/3D data between cross-platform CAD and PLM systems. This enables users to convert and view shared 2D and 3D models.

Naturally, InterBridge is not the only conversion and visualization product on the market for EDMS (engineering data management systems). CAD and PLM vendors have their own convertors and viewers; until now, NEOLANTs own offering was no different. However, InterBridge is being released as standalone software that any enterprise can now purchase to solve their design, construction management, operations, and decommissioning tasks.

Common Problems Enterprises Experience Implementing 3D Plant Information Modeling

One of the primary problems of state-of-the-art CAD systems that create 3D plant information models is their disciplinary focus. There are specialized systems for architecture and construction, there are other systems covering the design of automatic process control systems and electrical engineering, still other systems that encourage short-term and proper engineering design. As a rule, models created in systems of these types meet the high standards of dedicated specialists and contain a large amount of data describing engineering decisions to the last detail.

It can be argued, however, that on the market today there is no all-purpose CAD system that implements all aspects of all 3D design stages.

Creating an integrated 3D model is apparently a simple task. Most CAD systems support the capability of exporting models in several exchange formats or can read models saved in their competitors formats. When the project is developed on a single CAD platform (e.g, Bentley Systems), then the integration of graphical data and the creation an integrated plant model is easily done.

Will, however, the model contain all the information needed? Its possible that the integrated model (along with graphical elements containing all engineering attributes associated with the graphical elements in specialized CAD systems) will not be of value to the customer.

Regardless of lifecycle stage of the facility, even if the facility has a 3D model, the model is not necessarily informative, accessible, or complete. It may be only a beautiful 3D picture that is devoid of sufficient data and useful only for boggling the minds of managers.

Does it analyze technical decisions or find interdisciplinary collisions? It is not reasonable for users to employ a model with restrictions at the facility LC. At the construction and operation stages it is not important to the customer which CAD system developed the model; in any case, these kinds of users are generally not required to operate CAD. Contractors and operators need a simple and easily accessible tool that helps them to decide on production goals.

Using Plant Information Models to Boost Your Business

How to Make 3D Models Viable

InterBridge was developed by NEOLANT with the aim of solving the above mentioned problems. It is the best software for the on-line conversion and viewing of CAD/PLM graphical and attribute data. It works with many platforms that create, display, and analyze the integrated 3D plant information models.

There is value in InterBridges ability to make any enterprise more competitive by reducing production cost. As the cost of output and provided services becomes manageable, the desired level of profit is reached.
