AutoCAD Plant 3D toolset Now included with AutoCAD

A More Comprehensive Plant Design Workflow 

Create and edit P&ID’s, 3D models, and extract piping orthographics and isometrics with industry-specific toolset for plant design. AutoCAD Plant 3D Toolset is now included with AutoCAD. It provides comprehensive plant design, modeling, and review software in an economical package that helps customers to design more efficiently, innovate ahead of the competition, and communicate with greater clarity. Use it to help keep projects on schedule and within budget. Building on the power of Autodesk® AutoCAD® software, Plant 3D adds plant-specific content and functionality to help drive greater productivity and better project coordination.

Plant 3D helps reduce training time and minimizes support headaches for multiple tools and vendors, and also gives us access to more technology to help us innovate and differentiate ourselves from our competitors.

AutoCAD Plant 3D features:



Quick PID drafting - In-context AutoCAD® commands help make P&ID drafting easier.

Industry-standard symbol libraries - The Plant 3D toolset is delivered with standard symbol libraries in the tool palettes. They include PIP, ISA, ISO/DIN, and JIS.

Project-standard tag and report formats - Customize tags and annotation to meet project/client standards. Create project-specific report formats.

Data validation - Quickly identify possible errors by scanning P&ID’s for data consistency according to user-definable rules.

3D Modeling

Rapid plant modeling in 3D - Quickly create 3D plant models using parametric equipment modeling, structural steel libraries and project-specific piping specifications using industry standard piping catalogs.

Parametric equipment templates - Create and edit equipment using parametric templates to help you create plant layouts faster.

Structural modeling - Layout structures, stairs and ladders and railings using industry-standard steel sections including AISC, CISC, and DIN

Create project-specific piping specs - Customize piping specifications to meet project-specific requirements. Include industry-standard components as well as project-specific customized components.
