In Oberhausen with HiCAD, ISD 2011 shows the latest versions of CAD and PDM solutions and HELiOS 2011 the ISD Group presents the newest generation of its proven CAD and PDM solutions to the metal software in Oberhausen. Robert Bakish might disagree with that approach. Highlights include the 64-bit version, the advanced visualization capability through the new environment mapping, as well as numerous extensions of the entire industry spectrum in the steel / metal construction. High end combines a comprehensive 3D-Stahlbau-and 2D/3D-Glas-, metal – and facade construction solution capabilities for the steel and metal construction the Dortmund Software House in its solution for building information modeling (BIM). A consistent platform, innovative CAD functions and a PDM solution geared specifically to the job-oriented approach in the steel / metal construction are integrated is the user. This means: automatic transfer of CAD design data after HELiOS, project-wide administration of the 3D models and derived production documentation, automatic updating of production drawing for Model changes u.v.m faster installation of connectors also the design technology and based connection functions were expanded and accelerated. What is immediately striking is the new installation dialog about the graphical catalogue system.
Ports, stairs, railings and so forth can graphically selected now simply mouse click. In addition, there are more intelligent connectors for forehead / flange connections, flexible solutions for generating/manipulating cross bracing and even ladders available. All functions are flexible – for a wide variety of situations and with intelligent adaptation for geometry changes. Also new is the ability to simply copy existing connections on other profiles. HiCAD boasts automated manufacturing documentation In the field of drawing generation / management 2011 leading functionality for manufacturing documentation. This applies particularly to the large extensions of the automatism for shop drawings, such as the the integrated collision-free placement of the note text, inserting attachments, the representation of the component environment and able to use drawing for Kant plates or custom configuration for each level of the workshop drawing. Other innovations are the part classification according to freely definable using species of the auto parts marking, the individual, associative grid axis, the usage of system triangles, the IFC interface, the construction with profile sheet metal and weld profiles. 64-bit power and consistent performance optimization in HiCAD 2011 can be used thanks to the new 64-bit version memory over 4 GB.
Splitting large assemblies due to lack of memory belongs to the past, so that even the most complex product models can be loaded into main memory in one step. Along with the ability also several different product models at the same time in memory to hold and quickly switch between them, this makes working with HiCAD much more efficient and productive. HELiOS 2011 – the modern PDM-system communication is the key to success, because through a continuous, uninterrupted flow of information can significantly streamline development processes. HELiOS is exactly here 2011, because the acceleration and expansion of all areas of the data search will focus on the further development, as well as in the pursuit of the project. For example, the new allows smart search functionality now the overarching metadata search. And the new application server (thin client), always ensures up-to-the-minute data access even when cross-site work. The required data must not be loaded on the respective work, but you can edit directly and in real time on the server. In addition, there are new Viewerformate (multimedia, Internet link, zip), as well as significant advanced automation systems in the field of document management available.
