3D Conceptual Layout for Estimation - Basic Training using Aspen OptiPlant & ACCE

Build, navigate and optimize 3D conceptual models using Aspen OptiPlant. It enables users to model 3D equipment & structures and automatically route 3D interference free pipe. And use the 3D model in the proposal, front-end loading and FEED stage of optimizing and study plot plans, conceptualizing the design and produce an accurate piping and structural MTO.
