RI-CAD™ is the stand-alone version of the LabVision® RI-CAD™ software module for Windows® and Mac OS X® systems. The program enables the creation of P&I diagrams and other forms of drawing without a long time for familiarisation. For this reason it is particularly popular for use in training.
RI-CAD™ was especially developed for the drawing of P&I diagrams and contains a library in accordance with EN ISO 10628. The P&I diagrams can be used for the planning and documentation of a system.
Attached to the library elements is additional information which can be extended as desired to include such as supplier or maintenance information. The library can be expanded as desired using your own graphic objects.
2D drawings may be exchanged via the optional DXF import/export filter with other CAD systems such as AutoCad®. Thanks to its easy handling RI-CAD™ is also very popular outside the automation technology area.
RI-CAD™ works based on vector elements. These elements can, in contrast with pixel-oriented drawings, be modified at any time without influencing other elements or suffering a loss in quality. It is, for example, easily possible to increase or reduce the size of a single element without having to completely redraw the whole drawing.
The proven program which is popular with our customers as a result of the extent of its functions and its ease of learning was completely newly created for the version 2 in a modern development environment. Old P&I diagrams (data format PLS) can be opened, edited and saved using the new version.
