Increase Design Efficiency

COMPRESS eliminates the time-consuming, manual iteration required by other software to design entire vessels or individual components. For new designs, COMPRESS selects sizes, thicknesses and ratings to meet Code requirements. For rating or turn-around projects, COMPRESS calculates the MAWP and minimum thickness while allowing you to input your existing geometry.


Integration Is Standard Functionality

COMPRESS fully integrates out-of-the-box with Autodesk Inventor and SOLIDWORKS through our no-charge Codeware Interface Add-In.

Codeware Interface for Autodesk InventorInventor® Integration
Codeware Interface for SOLIDWORKS SOLIDWORKS® Integration

If you're not using Inventor or SOLIDWORKS, COMPRESS Exports 3D Solid Models of your pressure vessel or heat exchanger designs in ACIS (*.sat), IGES (*.iges), STEP (*.step) or Granite (*.g) format. These neutral files can be opened in many drafting and plant design systems.

We also support your custom systems. You can programmatically hook into your COMPRESS data using our XML Data Export.
