3D Layout Planning for Solidworks®

Today, virtually all layout plans are generated using 2D CAD systems, even though the individual plant equipment components are designed as 3D objects. The resulting system and medium discontinuity represent an obstacle to end-to-end automation, degrades quality and can result in substantial follow-on costs: in 2D-supported planning, problems do not become visible until the plant equipment is manufactured or assembled.

Still, manufacturers have stuck with 2D-supported planning because up until now, generating a 3D layout plan was considered too complex, requiring extensive time and effort for even for the most sophisticated CAD experts.

Lino 3D layout is fully integrated in Solidworks, enabling you to generate the reliable 3D layout plans needed for planning and selling industrial equipment simply and extremely rapidly. Lino 3D layout lets you easily position, configure and put together plant equipment components in a layout. Even employees with little CAD experience can readily learn how to rapidly generate comprehensive 3D layout plans.

With this software, your sales team can now generate 3D layout plans for complex machines right at the customer site and examine them together in 3D. When the order comes in, the data can be transferred directly to the designers.

Instead of drafting 2D sketches at the customer site and waiting days or weeks for a layout plan from the Project Planning department, sales staffers can produce a usable layout during their very first sales call!

Lino 3D layout’s optimized drag&drop functionality together with a hyper-accurate snap technology allows 3D layout plans to be rapidly and intuitively generated and modified based on configurable Solidworks components. The consistent use of Solidworks virtualization technology means that even extremely large plant layouts can be opened, edited and output easily in Solidworks.

Lino 3D layout offers additional tools for generating plant equipment and designs. It supports users by maintaining a collection of intelligent function models with rule sets and makes the different linkage possibilities between the plant components visible. Lino 3D layout boasts an optimum single-window integration in Solidworks. But the full potential of this solution is unleashed when it is used in conjunction with Tacton Design Automation.

With automatic dimensioning, Lino 2D fix offers a particularly elegant add-on function that enables you to dimension 3D layout plans with just a click. In seconds, you can create a clearly understandable, consistent customer drawing with the most important dimensional elements.

Possible applications: plant equipment manufacturing, silo/tank construction, steel construction, chemical plants, conveyor and handling systems, rail systems, trade show booths, packaging machines, HVAC, feeder technology, urban furnishing and many more.

If we’ve sold only one additional system because we were able to show the customer a convincing 3D layout quickly, then our investment and the internal overhead have more than paid for themselves.
