Efficiently design apparatus and pipeline models


  • Apparatus module as a design aid for containers and apparatus
  • Auto-routing feature
  • Built-in “pipe classes” module
  • Bill of quantities for all pipelines and components
  • Mounting systems from Mefa and Sikla
  • Interface with the ISOGEN® add-on module

Image module

With this 3D module, you can efficiently design professional apparatus and pipeline models.

The pipes, fittings and bends can be designed after selecting the pipe class by drawing a line in 3D.
Data from 2D models can be linked to the 3D model using the built-in pipe class database (MDB).

Changing the pipe class after inserting pipes, fittings and connecting pieces is possible at any time during the design process. After inserting all the parts, simply click to generate the required connectors such as flanges, gaskets, bolts or welds along the entire course of the pipe.

The design data is then transferred to ISOGEN®, giving you a complete range of functions.

Further highlights:

  • Reliable designs
  • Master pipe classes / project pipe classes
  • Standard components
  • Interface to the MDB format
  • Geometric and commercial data from Excel spreadsheets
  • Part and material codes

Report Manager add-on module
The Report Manager, which is available as an add-on module, allows you to create freely definable bills of materials and export them to Excel, for example. You specify which information in the TRICAD MS Info Dialog should be evaluated for each component.


Construction module included
The construction module makes it possible to create buildings quickly and easily as a solid model.
Planning in a 3D model always means having an architect’s model available in 3D. With our construction module, this is not always necessary, because buildings can be created quickly and easily as a solid model.


  • Predefined windows and doors
  • Easily extendable components
  • Mass extract of all objects
