Plant 3D Toolset

The 2023 Plant 3D Toolset Is Now Included With AutoCAD

The 2023 Plant 3D Toolset allows you to create and edit P&IDs and 3D models and extract piping orthographics and isometrics. You can now get access to this industry-specific toolset for plant design with your AutoCAD subscription.

With the 2023 Plant 3D toolset, you can:

  • Collaborate securely in a cloud based common data environment 
  • Automate and speed up P&ID drafting and 3D modelling with in-context commands 
  • Automate creation of piping isometric drawings directly from the 3D model
