Owner-operators as well as engineering design firms will see the benefits of using this easy-to-use, interoperable plant design software. OpenPlant Modeler V8i is the first 3D CAD plant modeling software to use ISO 15926 as an intrinsic data model as specified by the iRING user community. Like all OpenPlant products, OpenPlant Modeler V8i incorporates the ongoing and ever-advancing capabilities of MicroStation V8i, the market-leading platform for plant creation and every infrastructure discipline. OpenPlant Modeler V8i alsonatively supports workflows combining all pertinent plant software standards, including DGN, RealDWG, point clouds, and PDF.
Product Data Sheet
Most Productive and Easy-to-Learn Tool OpenPlant Modeler V8i is a specification-driven modeling system that matches how a plant designer works. Using the highly intuitive MicroStation V8i user interface, already familiar to many users, the rapid creation of 3D models including piping, HVAC, and electrical components is made easy. With the assistance of MicroStation features such as AccuDraw and AccuSnap, the placement of components requires a few simple clicks of the mouse.
Easy Reuse of Corporate Standards Existing designs, models, and associated data, as well as catalogs and specifications from PDS, AutoPLANT, and PlantSpace, can be easily reused, enabling faster project start up and continuity of plant design.
Piping Specification from Multiple FormatsTo ensure project compliance, piping specifications will limit the components that can be placed to what is in the specification. Running Specification Checktools validates that all components in a line meet the piping spec and will reduce checking time required, saving you time and money on your plant design projects.
Piping PlusModel integrated HVAC components alongside piping in single integrated project model.
Open, No Proprietary Lock-InExisting PDS designs and other third-party models can be reviewed and augmented to produce ISO 15926 output that enables future data reuse. In addition to third-party tool sets, OpenPlant Modeler provides tools that enable the migration of all PlantSpace Design Series models and data to the next generation of MicroStation-based plant design tools.
Freedom of Work LocationProjectWise V8i Managed Workspace provides a centrally administered workspace, freeing the designer from having to be connected at all times and allowing work to be performed in a disconnected mode. All updates to design session and workspace are transferred upon connection.
Interoperable with OpenPlant Plant and Instrumentation Diagram SoftwareInteroperate with OpenPlant PowerPID - 2D/3D comparison.
Point Cloud SupportInteract directly with point clouds in the 3D model.
Model Component Browser and Pipeline ManagerThe Model Component Browser provides designers complete insight into the plant design project to see which components are available to check out. Due to the dynamic check-in and check-out process, working with OpenPlant ModelServer V8i allows the designer to add or subtract components from the working session as required. This allows the user to work on an individual line, a complete system, or the whole project.
OpenPlant ModelServer V8i, which executes on top of ProjectWise V8i, allows the designer to be located anywhere in the world for a truly global project execution.
Modern Review and Publishing FunctionalityThe latest MicroStation V8i capabilities such as Dynamic Views make working in large models much easier. Plotting is available to Adobe PDF (2D and 3D) and many other formats.
Designers can quickly rectify mistakes in their design session by using the MicroStation V8i Undo command, with no fear of corrupting their plant design or database records.

Is there way to change the rating when placing a pipe with the intelligent line manager? For example with placing a Spears pipe with an "IL" the default schedule is set to 14. In the same way you can select a specification before populating a pipe run. Can you also select the schedule of pipe? Under Design Values the "rating" does not allow for any picks.
OpenPlant Modeler does report, but limited output only. However Scope of OpenPlant Orthographics Manager is growing, as it will furnish all the possible details which is required as an output. I would recommend you to Install OpenPlant Orthographics Manager and get the feel.
Is it necessary to download and use the new Orthographics Manager, or does the OpenPlant Modeler software already have the capability to create orthographic drawings without it?
Yes, you could be able to do it in OpenPlant Modeler. However there is a new product, OpenPlant Orthographics Manger which facilitates detailed drawing generation and can be installed on top of OpenPlant Modeler. For details you could also refer below product link:
Hope this helps.
Is the user able to extract a piping drawing (single-line or otherwise) from the models created in OpenPlant Modeler, or does the user need another application/software to accomplish that?
Thanks to confirm Maria,
Please let us know if we could assist you further on this.
Thank you Rahul for the help,
To change the Pipeline symbology, you need to change the named expressions. See below links for your reference please:
I have recently migrated from Plantspace to Openplant modeler. I am unable to change color and level attributes after placing a pipe run?? I have the change entire element box checked. Is the level and color predefined by the pipe spec? Any help would be greatly appreciated
