We provided 3D modeling using PDS of an onshore oil refinery for a Dubai based client by following ASME B31.3 codes & standards. It included equipment modeling for various equipments, piping modeling
1. There is a debated on the Laser Scanning Forum concerning whether a complete intelligent 3D model of an oil refinery has been built. 2. It would seem that this is technically possible, but that
Be it a petrochemical or oil & gas refinery, 3d modeling using the latest tools and following the codes and standards is very much important to design the refinery.
The 3D CAD model is a collection of graphical data which describes the facilities of a plant for visualization purposes. It can be accessed via various visualization applications like Intergraph’s Smart Plant Review OR Navisworks. The graphical data are an integral part of an engineering database supporting the design process.
The olden days :) This is what modeling looked like before computers. I wonder if anyone still does this. It looks like models of variou...
