(Norcross, Ga., 3 July 2007) - Leica Geosystems and COADE announced the release of CADWorx fieldPipe, a jointly developed spatial data capture tool that works within Leica fieldPro, a field-based plug-in to CAD products, to interface with total stations in the field, gathering 3D plant piping geometry information in real-time for use in CADWorx Plant Professional.
The CADWorx option, supplied by COADE Inc., represents a full license of CADWorx Plant Professional which includes piping, steel, HVAC, cable trays, automatic isometrics, bill of material and bi-directional links-to-stress analysis. The CADWorx fieldPipe for Leica fieldPro option, as well as the fieldPipe standalone option, have been enhanced with multiple additions, such as Pipe Orthogonization.
Chuck Coiner, vice president of sales for Leica Geosystems, said, "CADWorx fieldPipe is the perfect complement of simple total station survey measurements for basic piping with High-Definition Surveying (laser scanning) for more complex piping. This package can significantly reduce the amount of time it takes facility managers to document basic existing piping and add piping infrastructure to their plants. One of the big advantages is the ability to verify everything while you are still looking at your project and knowing there is little to no post-processing."
COADE, Inc. is one of the world's leading providers of engineering and design software designed for cross-discipline information sharing and interoperability. Company products include CAESAR II, the world's most popular pipe stress analysis software. For more information, please visit
