The software is well priced - yet it includes very powerful and useful tools. The Piping, HVAC Ducting & P&ID modules are equipped with auto-BOM tools. In the latest version (v3.12) includes several worthwhile improvements to all modules.
Piping tools include support for drawing pipe-work in single-line 2D, double-line 2D, in 3D and isometric piping schematics. Also included in the piping module are pipe hangers, vessels, pump and several other piping components.
The HVAC module provides for drawing rectangular, round and flat oval - sheet metal ducting, and all types of transition, bend and junctions, plus items such as heaters, grilles and flexible ducts.
The structural module has extensive libraries of steel shapes including sections from makers in Australia, Britain, USA, Canada, Japan, Europe, India and South Africa. There are tools for drawing connections of all common types, purlins and girts, stairs, ladders, and railings.
