Tight integration with Vault
Integrate with Vault data management software to improve inter-office project coordination:
Collaborate across offices.
Receive design update notifications.
Manage piping specification and catalogs inside projects.
Manage model workflow throughout the project.
Electrical raceways and ducting
Plant Design Suite includes AutoCAD MEP mechanical, electrical, and plumbing software for modeling electrical raceways and ducting.
P&ID creation and management
Create, modify, and manage piping and instrumentation diagrams with AutoCAD P&ID piping design software. Take advantage of faster piping—insert industry-standard symbols (PIP, ISA, JIS, ISO/DIN) or customized symbols into drawings. Access component and line information while you work.
3D plant and pipe design software
Experience modern 3D process plant modeling. Create more accurate designs in less time with spec-driven piping and components. Use spec-driven technology and ANSI/ASME (B16) and DIN/ISO catalogs to help meet project requirements.
Design, drafting, and plant layout
AutoCAD design and documentation software is included in every edition of Plant Design Suite for general design, drafting, and plant layout design.
Isometric and orthographic documentation
Generate piping isometric and orthographic drawings and documentation with AutoCAD Plant 3D software. Produce more accurate documentation throughout the process.
Fixed length pipe modeling
Route fixed length pipe more easily with functionality in AutoCAD Plant 3D plant design software. Plant Design Suite supports AWWA, BPE, and other piping catalogs.
Weight/Center of Gravity (COG) calculations
Use AutoCAD Plant 3D software to more quickly identify Center of Gravity (COG) for piping components and networks and produce COG reports.
Bill of Materials (BOM)
Use AutoCAD Plant 3D software to create Bill of Materials (BOM) tables and linked annotation from 3D models when creating orthographic drawings. By selecting the view, you can customize a predefined BOM table to better comply with client standards, then place it anywhere on the drawing.
Begin your design process in context from existing environments with ReCap reality capture software and services. ReCap creates 3D data from laser scans and photos, enabling you to clean, organize, and visualize massive datasets more easily.
Plant Design Suite includes AutoCAD Raster Design software to more easily incorporate design information from scanned drawings, maps, satellite images, aerial photos, and raster images, then convert them to DWG™ files.
