AutoCAD Plant 3D 2023 is a powerful tool for designing technological objects and creating a digital prototype of an existing or new object. This toolset, based on the latest version of the AutoCAD platform, provides the most advanced 3D design tools. Quick receipt of 2D and isometric drawings, as well as other documents, convenient access, and a management system, allow you to increase productivity and improve design accuracy.
What's new in Plant 3D 2023?
1. Creation of two-dimensional drawings showing the selected pipeline line.
You can now display piping in a one-line view on orthogonal drawings.
When choosing to display a pipeline line, you can select a filter based on the following criteria:
2. The annotation settings have been redesigned
The annotation settings have been redesigned with simplified options and additional annotation capabilities for isometric drawings.
Improved customization of isometric annotations allows you to do the following:
Customize instructions to specific components with additional conditions or to existing filters defined in IsoConfig.xml.
Customize instructions for specific property changes.
Specify block, outline style, and callout placement options for all annotations. You can configure default options for newly created annotations.
Provide class properties, PCF properties, special characters, and freeform text options when adding properties to the annotation.
Distinguish between BOM ID annotation settings for tubular and non-tubular components, factory, and assembly welds.
Configure a shared annotation component group for ID BOM annotations.
Improved filename format options for selecting a class or PCF properties.
3. Combination of parameters in properties
Users can now add merged parameters from the project setup of both P&ID and 3D piping classes. This ability allows a single field to create data based on combining data from multiple fields and certain values into a single value.
You can select Calculated by adding new properties from the project settings.
4. The functionality of importing into Microsoft Excel has been expanded
The Import to Excel dialog box will help you make your work easier. You can view import progress and warning messages when some drawings are extracted or cannot be updated. Click Update to check all drawings, import data from Excel to Data Manager, and update drawings.
Collaborating and repository projects allow data sharing when importing a data manager. All updated drawings will be withdrawn until the project drawing update is complete.
Manually checking in the updated drawings allows changes to be synchronized with a collaboration server or repository.
5. Added search function in cloud projects
Searching for projects to store and collaborate has become more convenient with the ability to filter projects.
Basiс Plant 3D 2023 Toolset's functionality
Buy a licensed AutoCAD Plant 3D 2023 to enjoy this software's features. The main functionality includes the following:
Project Manager and Project Setup
The Project Manager is used to organize the design environment. With it, you can open, add, and create drawings, export, and import data, create project reports, and link or copy files to project folders. At the beginning of the creation of a new project, the necessary information is entered (for example, its name and number), and the specs that will be used in this project are configured. In addition, you can create toolbars with the standard and custom components you need for your work. At any stage of project development, you can redefine and add other sets of components and specs with automated updating of information.
This program optimizes the placement of piping, equipment, steel structures, and other elements with a technology based on the use of specs and standard parts catalogs. To create mini-catalogs, you can use the standard catalogs supplied with the program or edit them according to the project's requirements.
This program streamlines the construction and editing of pipelines in accordance with technical requirements at all stages of the project. This allows you to route (semi-automatically or manually), edit the pipeline route and its components, and manage the connection system. In this case, components such as gaskets and flanges are added automatically.
With the help of an extensive library of standard elements, you can create and edit equipment of any complexity and control its placement in drawings. Custom equipment can be saved to the library and used in new projects.
In the 3D model of pipelines, you can create various metal structures. There are typical parametric metal structures, such as stairs, special protective fences, etc. You can use xrefs to add structural steel structures made in Autodesk Revit Structure, AutoCAD Structural Detailing, and other applications to piping drawings.
Based on a 3D model, you can create 2D isometric drawings and drawings of orthogonal views and sections. These drawings display views of piping, valves, equipment, and steel structures in Plant 3D models. Once you have created orthographic views, you can edit, save, or delete them and make other necessary changes. You can select a specific component in the orthogonal view and find its equivalent in the 3D model. Using the Project Browser, you can check the orthographic view against the model and update it if changes have been made.
Search and generation of reports
The program allows you to search for components, generate queries and manage the data of drawing components. The bill of materials and other reports are generated based on the specified search criteria. Supports queries and data processing, reporting on materials and exporting to PCF format.
Integration with AutoCAD P&ID
This program fully integrates the functionality of AutoCAD P&ID. This option allows you to create and edit technological, installation, and technological schemes of pipelines from the instrumentation and automation scheme, as well as to coordinate the data of the schemes with the data of the three-dimensional model.
Compatibility with Autodesk Navisworks
This software is compatible with the Autodesk Navisworks family of products, which offer advanced model building, visualization, process simulation, error detection, and clash detection.

The 2023 Plant 3D toolset is included with AutoCAD
I have been using Revit since 2011. For me, this is the best BIM software for almost any project task. The only downside for me is that there is little embedded content, but the built-in tools help me develop the missing components. It's also great that updates come out every year.

Our company purchased AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018 from this store. We are very pleased with the advice of your managers, as well as the quick processing of our order. Among the clear advantages of this version, our employees appreciated the new corridor editing feature, as well as support for direct work with InfraWorks. We recommend this software and this store!
I turned to this store in connection with the purchase of software for a 3D designer, and for good reason, because there are good specialists working here who will help, tell, advise on any of the products presented in their assortment. I received the order very quickly. Satisfied with the service.
I recently purchased this version and am now studying. What is useful for my work? Pipelines can now be laid faster. Frame structures can also be designed more flexibly and faster. Well, I am always in favor of improving productivity and speed of work. And I do it with Inventor Professional 2021!
