In this lab, you’ll go through the process of creating custom parts to use within your AutoCAD Plant 3D project drawings. This lab will demonstrate the recommended workflow to create custom parts that can be used in imperial, metric, and mixed metric projects. You’ll take 3D solids and convert them to usable AutoCAD Plant 3D parts, then add them in a catalog and spec, and finally use them within an AutoCAD Plant 3D model drawing to create orthographic and isometric drawings.
- Learn how to create or use existing 3D solids that can be turned into custom parts to use in an AutoCAD Plant 3D drawing
- Learn how to use PLANTPARTCOVERT to convert blocks and add ports
- Learn how to successfully take the converted custom parts, add them to a catalog, and then use the converted parts to add to a spec
- Learn how to use the custom parts in an AutoCAD Plant 3D drawing, creating an isometric and ortho drawing to show functionality
