Using the Plant 3D Toolset in AutoCAD

A productivity study detailing the differences between basic AutoCAD and the Plant 3D toolset

The AutoCAD Plant 3D toolset, included as part of the AutoCAD specialized toolset offering, help plant designers create and edit Piping & Instrumentation Diagrams (P&IDs) and to generate and modify process plant models, which they use to produce piping isometrics and piping orthographic drawings.

The following eBook explores six tasks commonly performed by process plant designers. It shows direct comparisons of the methodology employed to perform the tasks, with designers either using the AutoCAD Plant 3D toolset or basic AutoCAD. The gain in productivity depends on the nature of the task: some can be completed just a small percentage faster and some can show an increase in productivity of over 65% (creating and editing piping isometrics, for example) when using the Plant 3D toolset rather than basic AutoCAD. P&ID creation and editing tasks showed a productivity gain of about 10-25% while drafting, and over 66% when producing reports such as line lists.

In the case of piping tasks, the productivity gains were especially noticeable in tasks such as modifying piping, equipment and structures and producing drawings such as piping isometrics and piping orthographic drawings.
