This video showcases how to create a symbol for AutoCAD P&ID on the fly as well as creating for initial and re-use in future projects.
When joining pipes in AutoCAD Plant 3D you might not want to have a fitting like a tee or a sockolet. In this video we showcase how to create a stub in and then check the work with an isometric to make sure that the working drawings show exactly what has been modelled.
AutoCAD Plant is great for combining the disciplines of piping, structural components and equipment into one environment quickly and easily. A problem that might (okay probably definitely) when working with large assemblies is the managing of the files. Bigger files will equate to slower performance in your models, so what can we do to negate […]
I recently had a query as to why the company had to manually add text to their drawing borders, When we were taking a look at their templates, we noticed that everything seemed fine, The issue was, that the users did not know that the drawing was pulling the data from the drawing properties, This […]
This is as I always say, easy if you know how. Plant 3D has a lot of spec lines by default though a lot of companies are not very interested in detailing the material, Some, go as far as just stating Mild Steel or Stainless 304/316. If we look the picture below, you can […]
AutoCAD Plant and P&ID are 2 great enhancements to AutoCAD with specialised toolsets. AutoCAD P&ID creates all your 2D schematic components with ease and AutoCAD Plant creates your 3D pipe runs as well as your structures and equipment with minimal fuss.
With the introduction of the AutoCAD specialised toolsets the range of automation in AutoCAD has been greatly increased just by introducing modules that have always been there but was not utilised because there was an additional cost to it.
