COADE Draws Record Turnout to See Its CADWorx fieldPipe and CADWorx Plant Modeling and Plant Design Packages During SPAR 2008J in Kawasaki, Japan, April 17-18

HOUSTON—(BUSINESS WIRE)—June 6, 2008— COADE announced today that its booth at SPAR 2008J, held April 17-18 in Kawasaki, Japan, was the top draw at the show, attracting plant designers and engineers to see CADWorx fieldPipe, the only plant design product that combines the laser scanning precision of Leica fieldPipe from Leica Geosystems with CADWorx Plant, the companys AutoCAD-based plant design software, to produce laser-precise, intelligent models of existing plant piping systems, all completed in the field with little or no rework required.

We were pleased with the record-setting turnout to see CADWorx fieldPipe as well as our CADWorx Plant Design suite, an interest that actually became a challenge for our technicians who ended up staying hours past closing just to complete software demonstrations, explained Thomas J. Van Laan, PE, the president/CEO of COADE. Many of the plant designers and engineers who saw these products in action expressed a shocked delight because the solutions were so much more advanced and easier to use than anything they had seen before. I think thats a big reason we ended up with so many qualified leads, far exceeding our expectations.

This was Spar Point's fourth annual forum in Japan on capturing and managing existing-conditions data. SPAR 2008J topics covered technology trends in plant applications; 3D model creation from measured data; civil, historic preservation, and plant best practices; and mobile survey. Participants from the Asia-Pacific region included project managers, engineers, construction managers, survey heads and others involved in surveying, civil infrastructure, process manufacturing, fossil and nuclear power, transportation, offshore construction, automotive, aerospace, mining, LIDAR, shipbuilding and other industries. SPAR 200J was organized and managed by Spar Point Research, LLC. For information on SPAR 2008J, go to For information on COADE and its plant design and engineering analysis software products visit
