What is AutoCAD Plant 3D?

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

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.)

Plant 3D Toolset features

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 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. (video: 1:26 min.)

Parametric equipment templates

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

Structural modeling

Lay out structures, stairs, 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 customized 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.
