FINEFIRE – Fire Fighting Design
FINEFIRE combines BIM design and calculations within a fully integrated environment, performing all the required calculations for any fire installation directly from the drawings, producing automatically all the study results: calculation sheets, technical reports, bill of materials and costing, as well as all the final drawings (plan views, panel diagrams, details), which are fully updated.
FINEFIRE consists of two components, synergistically interacting between each other, the CAD component and the calculations component. The CAD component is a powerful autonomous tool (based on IntelliCAD) and includes a flexible CAD interface for designing the installation plus an expert system for producing the final drawings (plan views of the installation, vertical diagram, construction details etc). It allows the user to easily locate the installation components (sprinklers, hydrants, fire-hoses, collectors etc) on the floor plan and also allows simple or more sophisticated piping design.
The calculations component is an advanced calculation environment, using a spreadsheet-like functionality and a rich methodological background. It provides all the calculation results of the firefighting installation network, in a perfectly presented and completely documented way. In addition, FINEFIRE embeds an intelligent wizard component, which defines visually the installation and then produces the vertical diagram along with the full calculations in just few seconds.
