Pipe Modeling

Exact Orthographics and Isometrics for Optimized Piping Networks

DBM Vircon’s data-rich, nano-precise orthographics and isometrics facilitate the design of fully integrated water, sewer, district heating and drainage piping for buildings, commercial and industrial structures, mine sites, plants and pumping stations. Our models ensure an optimum pipe route that utilises the least amount of space and allows for easy maintenance access, with supports that are effectively located.

Through a rigorous design process our models and extensive data enable design and delivery of highly accurate piping networks. By examining collisions and gradients, and verifying alignment and surface connections, the accuracy of our models increases efficiency, slashes timeframes and reduces costs.

Slash Costs While Increasing Efficiency and Customer Satisfaction

Integrated Models

Our piping orthographics and isometrics allow full integration with other services and infrastructure, eradicating potential clashes early and enabling a full and comprehensive overview of a project.

Automated Clash Detection

Through 3D modeling, you are able to perform a clash detection test which identifies any overlaps in piping routing. This decreases the need for rework, which allows you to save time and expenses.

Comprehensive 3D Visualization

Continuous and detailed 3D pipe network and excavation models allow for a comprehensive understanding of the project and ease of validation and communication to stakeholders.

Effective Network

Our models and data result in a piping system which reduces space utilisation, optimises pipe routing, ensures piping supports are in proper locations and enables easy maintenance and dismantling.

Slashed Timeframes

Detailed and comprehensively labelled models reduce conflicts and clashes while also mitigating the need for rework, ultimately enabling efficiency and slashing project timeframes.

Reduced Costs

Our data and models are able to detect clashes and potential conflicts early on, meaning the risk of delays and rework is reduced, which drastically cuts expenses associated with labor and materials.
