Strong Bones To Support The Muscle

The GWIS 7 user interface is based purely on the Microsoft .NET framework.

To do the usual computer thing, like opening and saving files, viewing files and editing your database of products is easy, using this user friendly Interface. Compatibility is also guaranteed for future vesions of Windows, (we hope)....Vista is built on .NET


But GWIS is not about the usual computer thing. Itís about simulating complex pipe networks using complex numerical methods that can only be handled by fast computers, with 'multiple pipeline' processors,.... it's THE computer thing.

Before you can simulate a pipe network you must draw it. To draw a pipe network by computer requires a specialized CAD type interface.

The GWIS 7 Native Graphical User Interface is used to draw the systems you want to simulate. It supports any screen resolution your graphics hardware is capable of. It is also mouse and/or keyboard driven for fast and flexible user input. It is loaded with specialized tools to help you draw pipe networks easily.  

To mark out an irregular polygon for editing, and not the usual square window, is one of the advanced features of this GUI. Another is the ability to infinitely pan and zoom the system drawing while drawing or editing.

All the standard CAD features like Change, Copy, Delete, Extend, Insert, Mirror, Move, Offset, Rotate, Scale, Stretch and Trim are incorporated in the GUI.  

Communicating with other drafting software is easy using the built-in DXF format Read and Write functions. You can import terrain plans from your favourite CAD software package, design the pipe network inside GWIS( using its specialized design tools ) and export it back to the CAD drawing where you can apply the cosmetics.

You may also import any raster image as a background to your simulation.

GWIS will not confuse you with facts. Simply pretend you are the fitter on site when drawing(installing) systems or haul out your pressure gauge and analyse the system. It's all simple and real.

PS: You may also draw any pipe network using your favourite drafting software (like AutoCAD) and then import the network into GWIS for simulation and optimization only.

The GWIS User Interface has the power to support the muscle of applied numerics but remains simple enough to be operated by a CAD novice.
