CCT International
Solinas is a piping detailing solution for Autodesk® AutoCAD® 2018, 2019.

General Usage Instructions

Fabrication shops and construction detailing teams receive piping design data from Design teams in order to produce fabrication spool drawings and marked installation drawings.

Solinas allows draftsmen to read design piping data, select spool break points, and produce fabrication and installation marked-up drawings. These drawings are complimented with material and weld data.
