AutoCAD Plant 3D features

Collaboration & P&ID’s

  • Collaboration for Plant 3D

    Collaborate on plant design models across project teams and maintain compliance requirements—all in a cloud-based common data environment.

  • Quick P&ID 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.

  • Data validation

    Quickly identify possible errors by scanning P&IDs for data consistency according to user-definable rules.

3D modelling

  • Rapid plant modelling in 3D

    Quickly create 3D plant models using parametric equipment modelling, structural steel libraries and project-specific piping specifications using industry-standard piping catalogues. (video: 1.26 min.)

  • Parametric equipment templates

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

  • Structural modelling

    Lay out structures, stairs, ladders and railings using industry-standard steel sections including AISC, CISC and DIN.

  • Create project-specific piping specs

    Customise piping specifications to meet project-specific requirements. Include industry-standard components as well as customised components.

Piping documentation

  • 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.

Workflows

  • AutoCAD Plant 3D + BIM 360 Design

    Plant designers use BIM 360 Design to collaborate across project teams in a cloud-based common data environment. (video: 2.38 min.)

  • AutoCAD Plant 3D + Revit + Navisworks + InfraWorks

    Use AutoCAD Plant 3D in the AEC Collection for spec-driven design, analysis and construction-ready isometrics. (video: 2.05 min.)
