R.E. Warner was contracted to prepare a 3-D model of a new rolling mill reheat furnace and facility for a leading producer of long steel. The model is to serve as a visual management tool for planning, construction, educating, training and operation of the new equipment and facility.

Engineering services included preparation of a 3D model using Inventor software from existing 3D and 2D drawings of the new equipment and facilities, and modifications to the existing facility including models of equipment placement; exposed piping, electrical conduit and cable trays; piping from the existing water system to the new facility; the existing building immediately adjacent a new building and a new building extension; new electric overhead crane runway extension structure, rails and conductors; existing electric overhead crane; and the electrical room.
