AutoCAD Plant 3D toolset

Now included with AutoCAD

Create and edit P&IDs, 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

    Customise tags and annotation to meet project/client standards. Create project-specific report formats.

  • 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

    Layout structures, stairs and 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 project-specific 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.
