Share projects and invite others to work collaboratively.
Place instrumentation directly from the Instrumentation tool palette, and place in the same way as piping components.
Easily create a local backup of your project.
Project manager search
Find project design files faster.
Better integration with Vault data management software.
Tools improve the representation of skewed lines in piping isometrics.
3D graphics performance improvements
The toolset makes the most of hardware graphics acceleration for speedier performance.
Many project commands are right-clickable in Project Manager. This makes workflows, like editing piping specifications, easier.
Display lines and components in colors by property value.
Check for piping specification consistency in P&ID.
Off-page connector improvements in P&ID
Supports data consistency across P&ID for process and instrument lines.
P&ID data validation
The P&ID and the AutoCAD Plant 3D toolset model are tightly integrated.
Quick P&ID drafting
In-context AutoCAD commands help make P&ID drafting easier.
Standard symbol libraries
Symbol representations are visible in the tool palettes and organized by type. Includes PIP, ISA, JIS, and ISO/DIN.
Project standard tag and report formats
Create and customize tags and labels to meet project standards.
Quickly identify possible errors. The tool scans P&IDs for data consistency, according to user-definable rules.
Import/export P&ID data
Use engineering data from Excel to update the P&ID. Use the data updates for output in reports.
ISO 15926 standard
AutoCAD P&ID uses ISO 15926.
Parametric equipment modeling
Parametric equipment definitions help you model more quickly.
Lay out steel stairs, ladders, and railings using standard steel sections. Includes AISC, CISC, and DIN steel catalogs.
Calculate weights and center of gravity
Locate center of gravity of piping spools of individual piping components and combinations of components.
Bills of materials (BOMs)
Add BOM tables and linked annotations to orthographic drawings. Customize project-specific table formats, as needed.
Import Inventor equipment models
Intelligently integrate simplified Inventor models and connect piping.
Fixed-length pipe modeling
Place pipes quickly and produce detailed material takeoffs. Supports AWWA, BPE, and other piping catalogs.
Include multiport valves in your model.
Pulled pipe bends
Create a single pipe with pulled pipe bends.
Isometric reference dimensions
Display the isometric dimension in the extracted isometric.
PCF to pipe
Create pipes from an isometric PCF file.
