Create and edit P&ID’s, 3D models, and extract piping orthographics and isometrics with industry-specific toolset for plant design.
AutoCAD Plant 3D features
Quick PID drafting
In-context AutoCAD® commands help make P&ID drafting easier. (video: 58 sec.)
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.
Quickly identify possible errors by scanning P&ID’s for data consistency according to user-definable rules.
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. (video: 1:26 min.)
Parametric equipment templates
Create and edit equipment using parametric templates to help you create plant layouts faster.
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.
Create and edit piping orthographic drawings
Extract piping orthographic drawings directly from the 3D model and update them as the 3D model is being updated.
Automated production of piping isometrics
Create industry standard / project-standard piping isometric drawings directly from the 3D model.
Automated project-specific reporting
Define report formats for the project and automatically populate the data directly from the 3D model.
BIM model documentation
Work with other industry disciplines to create BIM models for the plant.
