Bentley AutoPlant Piping V8i

AutoCAD-Based Piping Design and Modeling Software

AutoPLANT Piping - 3D piping design software

AutoPLANT Piping architecture takes advantage of the latest AutoCAD technology to produce intelligent, three-dimensional production models under demanding deadline constraints.

Component and drawing controlled data is dynamically linked to an external project database. The database information can be used to generate reports, or to globally manipulate and revise the descriptive component data.

AutoPLANT Piping supports the creation of orthographic drawings (plans, elevations and sections), using paper space view ports and exporting 3D model data to produce finished drawings. The Import/Export feature supports output to a piping component format (PCF) for input to Alias Limited’s ISOGEN software for theautomatic generation of ISOGEN isometrics. Drawing Flattener produces flat, two-dimensional drawings including elevations, plans and sections from the 3D model. Suitable for fast edits on construction drawings.

Integrated with Other AutoPLANT Products
AutoPLANT is integrated with your project information right out of the box. As data is entered via the P&ID or datasheets, it is instantly available to the 3D designer. This makes for unmatched productivity and accuracy. The XM Edition expands this capability even more using new tools to allow further integration.

Flexible Working Modes
The V8i (SELECTseries 3) Edition introduces a new Briefcase-mode technology. This allows designers who do not need work-sharing features to work independently with less administration and setup. Using the same technology, models on large projects can be easily moved between projects or disconnected from the project, or individual project models can be restored from backup.

2D Orthographic Drawings
The requirements for 3D visualization is often different than the presentation of the same components to industry standard plans and sections. AutoPLANT produces orthographic drawings in single and double line with visible centerlines. The V8i (SELECTseries 3) Edition extends this capability with improved tools to control the display of 3D components.
