    Go beyond the standard “globular” shapes for equipment in AutoCAD Plant 3D software and harness the alternative options to convey your piping design more accurately. We will work on understanding the ins and outs involved when using standard equipment, but also get in depth with options of creating more-complex 3D solids or bringing in designs from outside sources. Finally, for equipment configurations that constantly change during project design, use the power of AutoCAD software’s external references (xref) to keep your designs up to date with the latest changes to the equipment.

    Key Learnings

    • Discover the benefits and drawbacks to using AutoCAD Plant 3D software’s equipment.
    • Discover how to use AutoCAD software’s 3D solids or imported models with equipment.
    • Learn how to create AutoCAD Plant 3D equipment from Inventor BIM content.
    • Learn how to harness the power of AutoCAD software’s external reference (xref) with AutoCAD Plant 3D equipment.
