SDS/2 Software Solutions for
Offshore Projects

Designing and building platforms for offshore work is a natural fit for SDS/2 software solutions. SDS/2’s 3D model facilitates the gathering of material lists, and provides center of gravity on assemblies for modular construction, all while generating plans and detail drawings. In addition, allowing multiple designers on a single model can help speed offshore projects as well. Most importantly, the 3D model acts as a visual central database and information can be drawn from it to help manage projects from start to finish. SDS/2 products are valuable tools in offshore platform construction.

The visual feedback users get from a 3D model comes with the benefit of being able to see exactly how pieces are going to fit up before they are fabricated or erected. Sloping column joints and pipe-to-pipe welded connections are built in the system.

The model, as a visual database, contains much more information than just fit up. Files can drive fabrication equipment for plates, pipes and wide flange material.

Copper Cliff Deep Shaft Sinking

This project, completed by GENIFAB, consists mostly of an elevator working area platform, which travels in a mining shaft guided by rollers bearing against the shaft walls. Among several challenges were the circular geometry, and the vast quantity of members, trusses, miscellaneous items, and hardware in a very restrained area.
