Easy to learn, modern user interface

 

Vertex G4Plant is CAD software for designing plants and related equipment and structures. You can also produce drawings without using a 3D model. To manage drawings and models, the software utilizes a built-in design data management system.

The speed of design and modeling is based on powerful special functions that allow you to build an intelligent plant model in an illustrative and fast way, utilizing ready-made library components. Using the software is easy to learn. The modern interface provides clear pushbuttons in a polished order to suit the workflow. G4Plant also includes extensive G4 mechanical engineering package.

Illustrate your design in the surrounding terrain

Model the surrounding terrain easily with terrain modeling tool with the help of contours of a 3D DWG files.
You can also modify the terrain model, or add realistic textures on terrain.

Use powerful parametric tools and comprehensive component library for modeling the building and equipment.
Customizable visualization features allow creation of finalized architectural drawings.

Save design time and costs by using Import -features with a wide range of supported CAD file formats.

Point clouds – Fast and errorless renewal design

Laser scanned point cloud brings your design object to Vertex realistically and accurately.
Point clouds can be imported in following formats: ascii ( xyz ) , LAS , LAZ , PTS , PTX , E57 , STL.

Vertex supports scanning view points as well as intensity values ​​and colors, if these are stored in the point cloud file.
Vertex also takes care of triangulation with cloud file points for shading.

You can snap to cloud point for dimensioning and reference. Part of cloud points can also be deleted by area selection.

Turn on various piping design projects quickly

Vertex G4Plant always contains all the pipe classes by PSK Standards Association and an extensive library of piping components .

Create the piping model with powerful design features and generate the isometrics automatically from the model.
Piping designer has always a seamless connection between process design and process information.

Clear and consistent user interface in G4Plant software means it´s easy to learn and you can quickly start using it.

Piping supports fast with correct information

Vertex G4Plant includes the latest primary support library with metadata according PSK 73 series of standards. Secondary supports have their own type library .

You can also model the secondary supports using profile library according to the situation.

The highly automated support drawing application brings significant speed to produce often large amount of support drawings quickly.

Above the standard support libraries we also offer further Lisega and Hydra Primary supports with dimensioning from manufacturers.

 

 

 

Insulation

Truly insulated pipelines make a reliable and informative part of layout.

Insulation is added to the pipeline assembly clearly as a visible part models. Insulation can easily produced around an existing pipeline with listable metadata. For the right choice of insulation application contains covering insulation tables.

Insulation is also shown isometric drawings if needed. The new technology allows to use assembly-type of insulating material, for example sheet metal.

Produce isometric drawings with part lists

Vertex G4Plant software includes Isogen® application to produce isometric drawings integrated into the software.
It allows you to get an automatically dimensioned isometric drawings with parts list from the 3D pipeline or selected pipeline sections.
It also includes a customizable library of isometric symbols and tools for editing isometric forms and other isometric contents.

Stretch and shape, connect and disconnect, now easier than ever

Route circular or rectangular ducts and add components with customized dimensions easily.
Also ready-to-use duct components from different suppliers are available.

The libraries contain conversion parts, segment elbows and other special parts.
In special cases you can also model freely and use unfolding of parts for production drawings.

Experience the ease of modeling service platform structures

Design service platforms and stairs with handrails as easily as piping.

Stairs and service platforms are designed with a comprehensive, interactive and automatic tool.
After selecting the type of platform and stair you start routing. The generated 3D model is fully editable.
Lengths, widths, heights and stair angles in the automatically generated part assemblies can be freely modified afterwards.
