AutoCAD Plant 3D Toolset

The 2023 AutoCAD Plant 3D toolset is included with AutoCAD
Create and edit P&IDs and 3D models, and extract piping orthographics and isometrics with an industry-specific toolset for plant design. With the AutoCAD Plant 3D toolset, you can:

  • Collaboration for AutoCAD 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. Use in-context AutoCAD commands to make P&ID drafting easier.
  • Industry-standard symbol libraries. The Plant 3D toolset is delivered with standard symbol libraries in the tool palettes. These 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
  • 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.
  • Parametric equipment templates. Create and edit equipment using parametric templates to help you build 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
  • 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
