[Tucson, AZ] Schletter has teamed up with STOHER+SAUER, a German CAD application shop, to distribute Helios 3D, a software package for planning and developing large commercial and utility-scale roofand ground-mounted PV systems. STOHER+SAUER’s Helios 3D is a two-part system that includes server-based database management and an AutoCAD-based drafting interface. The database is designed to manage information such as racks, modules, array support posts, bills of materials and post location coordinates. A shared SGL server installation allows multiple users to access and update database information. Integrated design tools facilitate tasks such as rack placement; shadow object placement and calculation; row numbering; terrain analysis; and specifications for row distance, access roads and equipment staging areas. Helios 3D is used in conjunction with AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011 or 2012. Schletter recommends that users have a basic understanding of AutoCAD Civil 3D fundamentals before using Helios 3D. Schletter offers Helios 3D training and a variety of pricing and licensing options.
