Autocad plant 3d toolset now included with autocad

Use an industry-specific toolset for plant design and engineering to create P&IDs and integrate them into a 3D plant design model.


AutoCAD Plant 3D features

Cloud-based collaboration

Share projects and invite others to work collaboratively.

Instrumentation support

Place instrumentation directly from the Instrumentation tool palette, and place in the same way as piping components.

Project backups

Easily create a local backup of your project.

Project manager search

Find project design files faster.

Vault improvements

Better integration with Vault data management software.

Isometric improvements

Tools improve the representation of skewed lines in piping isometrics.
