Fabrication Desktop Overview

Fabrication Desktop® - Version 01.00.00
The Building Information Modeling (BIM) process is still new to many contractors. Fabrication Desktop was designed to help all contractors adopt this new process easily. Fabrication Desktop allows smooth information transferring between 3D fabrication modelers and the prefabrication shop or foreman on the job site. Fabrication Desktop® is a first-of-its-kind machine control application Windows desktop application, that helps designers more efficiently optimize assembly spooling and material procurement. Fabrication Center ensures that all assemblies are error-free and export-ready for prefabrication or on-site fabrication with TigerStop machines, thus saving time, and reducing the cost for the contractor.
Assemblies may then be processed using Fabrication Center TigerStop export tools. Assemblies can be exported and pipes can be filtered to be optimized to the user's TigerStop machine. Upon applying TigerStop settings, exporting assemblies, pipe segments can easily be translated to a .CSV file and run on the user's TigerLink 6 profile that is linked to their Fabrication Tools for Revit application. Fabrication Desktop® connects to this process allowing users to streamline communications of assemblies to their fabrication shops.
Connect to Autodesk® BIM360®. Directly access your hubs, project files, and Revit models. User's can view their projects that contain assemblies, procure packages for staging products for fabrication, translate packages to orders, and export the TigerStop cut lists from the Fabrication Center as downloadable cut list files for TigerLink 6® cutting software. User's can access 3D views and sheets to the associated models and navigate through their projects with ease. Fabrication Center allows users to easily navigate and convey design intent to their fabrication teams.

Fabrication Center outputs critical data on each assembly, such as assembly names, pipe sizes, lengths, and quantities, into .CSV files. These files may be electronically transferred to programmable TigerStop machines to ensure accuracy in fabrication. For traditional, non-programmable machines, assembly data may be output into .XLS files that can be printed and used as a comprehensive guide to correctly mark each assembly piece.
Compatible with all TigerStop TigerLink 6 connected machines.
Compatible with Allied Fabrication Center.
