Plant Express Tools were created to capture high value one-off functions that do not fit into any of the other PlantTools. Customers wanted the ability to copy or rename their AutoCAD® P&ID and AutoCAD® Plant 3D projects. Plant project administrators were in need of a quick and easy way to manage selection lists in their plant project configurations. Also it’s possible to find your symbols in your drawings by using the coordinate function. AutoCAD® P&ID and AutoCAD® Plant 3D don’t always update Tags and acquisition rules properly. With PlantExpressTools you can update tags and acquisitions within your drawing or the whole project by the click of a button. Also assemblies can be handled to group parts of you P&ID drawing into logical groups. Last but not least you can ex- and import symbol and class properties to quickly modify values through a csv file. From/To-Update finally delivers sensible From and To values for Line Segments as well as LineGroups so you can create meaningful line lists.
PlantTools are a set of applications and utilities specifically designed to enhance the workflow and functionality of the Autodesk® Plant Solutions products, AutoCAD® P&ID and AutoCAD® Plant 3D. As CAD STUDIO ABCOM GMBH’s training and consulting services have enabled us to be close to customers using Autodesk® Plant Solutions. PlantTools originated and have been developed from the real life needs of plant customers from a variety of plant industries.
The ability of our PlantTools to synchronize, copy and rename projects, manage selection lists and edit symbol and class properties through csv files give administrators powerful tools to manage the AutoCAD® Plant 3D and AutoCAD® P&ID projects in their organizations.
