Autocad Plant 3D

Course Overview

This training covers many of the essential features of AutoCAD® Plant 3D. Students learn how to create 3D Piping Designs by placing steel structures, equipment, connecting equipment with pipelines, adding valves, reducers and pipe fittings. AutoCAD Plant 3D is used to create Piping and Instrumentation diagrams and design a 3D Plant model quickly. AutoCAD Plant 3D is the product of Autodesk. It was first released to help process and power industry in the year 2007. This software is designed to create Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams, and then design 3D Plant model based on the P&ID.

AutoCAD Plant 3D is based on AutoCAD User-interface. However, the intelligent 2D/3D symbols and the connected Database are main features of this application. You can use this database to generate reports, create annotations, and so on. When you change the attributes of various symbols, the annotations are updated automatically. In AutoCAD Plant 3D, you create everything inside a project in order to make your design consistent

Course Objective

This course is intended for everyone that has a need for designing Plants and skids in 3D. This course can be followed by either draftsmen or process engineers who have the need to quickly generate 3D models of steel structures, equipment, piping routes, isometric- and orthographic drawings. After completing this course, students will be able to:

Create simplified steel structures.
Create and place equipment
Connect equipment with pipe lines.
Add inline components like valves, reducers and pipe fittings.
Tag and annotate the piping and inline components.
Create isometric drawings
Create orthographic drawings
Import and export data to Microsoft Excel.
Validate the generated 3D Piping Design.


Before enrolling for this course, the student should be able to understand and know how to use the AutoCAD 2D and 3D environment. In-depth knowledge of Piping Design is not required but will be helpful. It is recommended that the student have a working knowledge of Microsoft® Windows® 7 or Windows 10
