Available as a free plug-in for Intergraph Smart3D®, Aveva PDMS® and Aveva Everything3D®

Integrates with the software you use every day to deliver efficient, workable MEP supports. The plug-in gives you access to over 700 elements from the Hilti Channel and Strut Library. The plug-in focuses on smart support templates for rule-based frame supports such as I, L, T, U-shape, wall-to-wall or channel-to-steel/concrete. Please refer to the user manual for more details

Enhance the capabilities of your preferred software for a more connected project team throughout the design, procurement, and building process. Design rules and product connection logic are automatically embedded to help ensure the constructability and reliability of designs. The clash detection feature further minimizes risks and changes on the jobsite.

Easily adapt an engineering specification to a project specification

Insert Hilti strut/modular girder systems directly into your 3D plant designs using our modular supports catalogue, templates and typicals wizard. Our catalog of smart assemblies helps you more easily design mechanical, electrical, and piping applications for your energy and industry projects.

Simpler optimization, standardization, and customization

Quickly add attachments, resize frames, swap out parts, and add bracing in your 3D model with our intelligent smart support placement wizard. Customize typicals based on your unique design requirements to support project standardization.

Automatically generate Bills of Material and other essential documentation

Control costs and streamline ordering thanks to the plug-in’s automated BOM generator. The modular supports design plug-in helps you to produce a fully specified model with support data, a bill of materials, or material takeoff report in a few clicks.
