12d Model assists with the design, construction and mapping of oil and gas pipelines, original site exploration and the wide range of infrastructure required for oil and gas projects.

Accurate 3D modelling and the ability to share data between users allow teams to quickly and easily coordinate designs.

Refer to ‘Surveying’ Dimension.

Carry out earthwork design and analysis. Develop mass haul diagrams and other project documentation. Perfect for trenching.

Volume Calculations    
Multiple volume reporting options including length, area and exact methods. 
Access roads and right of way    Design access roads and right of way using 12d Model’s alignment and earthwork design tools. Refer to ‘Roads and Highways’ dimension.

Mine civil infrastructure design    
12d can be used to design civil works associated petrochemical facilities, export terminal, drill pads and numerous other elements of mine civil infrastructure.

Pipeline alignment design    
Utilise 12d Model’s specific pipeline design string to create pipeline alignments and produce project documentation such as profiles.

Non-gravity services  and subsurface utilities 
Coordinate and grade all non-gravity services and subsurface utilities to ensure sufficient cover and clearance for all. A variety of string types may be used, including Super string conduits, Pipeline strings, Drainage strings and Super Alignments. Designs can be exported to GIS for future reference and use.

Visualisation and presentation
The 3-D design is automatically/continuously created and can be viewed at any stage of the design process to provide instant real life representation of the project. This is enhanced by:

  • the automatic application of textures to the design surface triangulation
  • the draping of aerial photography on existing surfaces
  • addition of features such as guardrails, line marking, street lighting, barriers, vehicles, trees and houses

walk and drive through the design with options to record the drive as a movie to share with clients and other stakeholders.

Project documentation    
Automate the production of reports and drawings (plans, cross-sections and long-sections) and reduce drafting times.
