Plant Design Suite Premium 2015 from Autodesk is a suite of CAD tools plus visualization software optimized for plant design. On top of the capabilities found in the Standard edition, Premium adds tools for 3D modeling, including piping design, structural design, visualization and construction simulation, and whole-project reviews. The software included is AutoCAD, AutoCAD Raster Design, AutoCAD, AutoCAD Raster Design, ReCap, AutoCAD P&ID, AutoCAD Plant 3D, Revit Structure, 3ds Max Design, AutoCAD Structural Detailing, ReCap, Navisworks Simulate, and Showcase. This copy of the software is a perpetual, single-user, download license. It is for installation on 64-bit versions of Windows.
What's New for 2015
Fixed Length Pipe Modeling
Route fixed length pipe more easily with new functionality in AutoCAD Plant 3D software. Plant Design Suite supports AWWA, BPE, and other piping catalogs
Weight and Center of Gravity Calculations
Use AutoCAD Plant 3D software to calculate the center of gravity of individual piping components and combinations of piping components, including pipe lines and piping spools. More quickly identify the location of Center of Gravity (COG) for piping components and networks and produce COG reports. View the center of gravity location in 3D as the properties display the x,y,z location, as well as the total weight of the selected components. You can also edit the COG location of individual components to allow for custom parts, such as extended valve operators, and produce COG reports in PDF, Excel, or HTML files
Bill of Materials (BOM)
Create Bill of Materials (BOM) tables and linked annotation when creating orthographic drawings. AutoCAD Plant 3D provides functionality to create bills of materials on piping orthographic drawings created from the 3D model. By selecting the view, you can customize a predefined BOM table to better comply with client standards, then place it anywhere on the drawing
P&ID and Piping Design
3D Plant and Pipe Design Software
Experience modern 3D process plant modeling with AutoCAD Plant 3D software. Create more accurate designs in less time with spec-driven piping and components. Use spec-driven technology and ANSI/ASME (B16) and DIN/ISO catalogs to help meet project requirements
Create and Manage P&IDs
Create, modify, and manage piping and instrumentation diagrams with AutoCAD P&ID plant software. Take advantage of faster piping--insert industry-standard symbols (PIP, ISA, JIS, ISO/DIN) or customized symbols into drawings. Access component and line information while you work
Isometric and Orthographic Documentation
Generate piping isometric and orthographic drawings and documentation with AutoCAD Plant 3D software
Plant Design Suite includes AutoCAD Raster Design software, so you can more easily use scanned paper drawings and similar raster data. Incorporate design information from scanned drawings, maps, satellite images, aerial photos, and raster images, then convert them to DWG files
Begin your design process in context from existing environments with ReCap software. ReCap delivers powerful workflows to create 3D data from laser scans and photos, enabling you to clean, organize, and visualize massive datasets more easily
With 3ds Max Design, you can transform plant layout design models into photorealistic design visualizations. An effective visualization can help clients, government agencies, and community stakeholders better comprehend design intent and project impacts
Faster Project Reviews
Combine structural, piping layout, and equipment models in Navisworks Simulate software to support project constructability reviews
Structural Design and Detailing
Model, analyze, and document structures with Revit Structure software
AutoCAD Structural Detailing is the version of AutoCAD software specifically for structural detailing and creating fabrication shop drawings. Built on the familiar AutoCAD platform, AutoCAD Structural Detailing software helps improve design accuracy by providing tools that help automate the creation of concrete reinforcement drawings and enable efficient modeling of steel connections and shop drawings
