What do you like best?

I like that I have the possibility to export back and forth to other softwares like Caesar II or PV Elite. Very useful for big project Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the errors especially the isogen errors. It takes me a while to figure out what the problem is because the error message is quite vague. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I have started to work for my first project in CADWorx after a 30 minutes lesson given to my by one of my coleagues.

I recommend to anyone interested to try it for at least 10 days. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using Cadworx for piping design: from creating the specific database to 3D modeling, 3D model integration, preparing the model for stress analysis with Caesar, isometric generation (including I-Configure projects), P&IDs, generation of bills of materials, creating 2D sections for erection details.

It saves a lot of time and resources, can be used for various types of projects, from basic to very complex ones, and the accuracy is so high the pipes were perfectly fitted on site. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

CADWorx has a very user friendly environment which makes professional working very simple and easy to execute. When doing Plant Engineering, CADWorx comes in very handy when implementing PIDs into 2D Layouts and 3D Modelling of piping system. Reviewing activity is made easier when all piping items can be isolated in a complex piping system. CADWorx can be integrated in other modelling softwares such as Navisworks, Caesar II etc. which makes it a team player for any organization. Sectional details of the model can also be made clear with the help of right tools defined in Cadworx. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

CADWorx should improve Isometric generation of piping model because usually there are continuation mistakes and connectivity issues with the software. During Isometric generation the number of piping components are usually scrambled and its takes a lot of manual working to properly align the Isometrics in order with the 3D Model. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Improve Isometric generation in CADWorx. Add more database of piping components in CADWorx. Presentation of Piping Specifications in Database shall be improved. Valves representation shall be improved in database. Special Items such as Control Valves and Shut Down Valves needs separate legend for representation. Piping Items such as strainers, expansion bellows required separate legend while depicting in piping layouts.

Use CADworx for Plant Design, Piping Layouts development and Isometrics generation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Detail Engineering and Piping Design. CADWorx is really very good and contains fair amount of tools under one hood for professional medelling. 2D and 3D Modelling in CADWorx are very useful in doing Plant Engineering and minor details can be modeled during engineering design.

What do you like best?

its the software in my view to design and to work on. CADWorx is easy to use because the software is AutoCAD based and utilizes exactly the

same command structure and methodology with which all AutoCAD users are already

familiar. This, along with the intuitive workflow of CADWorx, assures that the large base of

trained AutoCAD users can become productive within days of first encountering the product.

Likewise, the large set of template specifications and component databases shipped with the

product, coupled with the product’s smooth 2D to 3D transition, database flexibility, and easy

on-the-fly customization (no programming required) allows even the most casual users to

easily and quickly ensure that CADWorx works exactly the way Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

sometimes when I pull previously saved file the software lags. it could be a problem in my system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend CADworx to anyone who is in the field of designing work.it is very useful software in designing, rendering & editing. so one must try this software in order to experience a new level of designing capabilities.

CADWorx is a scalable solution because it combines ease of use and quick startup with full

functionality and extensive integration and data sharing capabilities. This allows CADWorx’s

advantages to be focused according to the project’s demands. Smaller, simpler, projects can

take advantage of CADWorx’s rapid startup and small overhead needs to meet tight

timelines and budgets. Larger, more complex, projects, can take advantage of CADWorx’s

automation and integration to reap downstream savings.
