PlantWorks

A 3D Plant Design Add-in for SOLIDWORKS

What is PlantWorks?

PlantWorks is a fully integrated add-in to SOLIDWORKS that allows for rapid 3D layout generation from furniture layouts to full machine layouts in your facility for proposals, photo renderings, and fly-through animation.

Create your Plant design proposal

Using PlantWorks and SOLIDWORKS visualization tools you will be able to provide early visibility of your proposed plant solution.

 

Capabilities

With PlantWorks anyone can quickly and easily create their plant layout using drag and drop.

Plant Walk-through

Plant Design and Optimization

PlantWorks includes a standard component library which allows you to easily drag and drop plant components into your design. You can also create a custom library of components specific to your business. The PlantWorks library insertion process is intelligent so that only specified parameters are available when inserting library components thus making the plant creation process more automated for users.

PlantWorks also manages your library files and provides simple to use tools for quickly positioning components into your plant layout. With SOLIDWORKS® Collision Detection you can verify and test the design of your plant and optimize the layout.

Visualization and Communication

Review and communicate your plant concept design easily with SOLIDWORKS® visualization tools, create realistic camera views and 'walk-through' animations, then share your design with suppliers and customers using SOLIDWORKS eDrawings Professional®.
