FINE GAS, the new FineMEP application for Gas project design, combines Design and Calculations in a Fully INtegrated Environment, making all the required calculations for any Gas Building Installation directly from drawings, generating all the study results: Calculation sheets, technical reports, bill of materials and costing, as well as all the final drawings (plan views, vertical chart, axonometric diagram etc) fully updated.
FINE GAS consists of two Components, synergistically interacting between each other:
The CAD Component, a powerful autonomous tool, based on 4MCAD, including a flexible cad interface for designing the installation plus an expert system for producing the final drawings (plan views of the installation, vertical and axonometric charts, construction details etc).
The Calculations Component, an advanced calculation environment, using a spreadsheet-like functionality and a rich methodological background. It provides all the calculation results of the Gas network and overall installation, in a perfectly presented and completely documented way.
Advanced CAD Interface
FINE-GAS' advanced CAD interface supports the design of any Gas installation in two simple steps:
- Location of the Installation components (gas receptors, collectors etc) on the view plan
- Piping design with simple or more sophisticated routing commands (i.e. “Pipes Parallel to Wall”, “automatically connected to the receptors” etc) to speed up the process.
The view plan can be taken in a DWG or DXF file format or even a bitmap file. Or, it can be drawn from scratch through the AutoBLD (Architectural) commands of the package.
Complete Calculations directly through the Drawings
The calculation sheet is being automatically updated directly through the drawings thanks to the AutoNET group of commands. The network (composed of the piping network, gas receptors and appliances etc), is "recognized" and transferred into the calculation sheets.
Calculations rely on a rich Methodological background based on European and international standards.
