Design collaboration between architecture, engineering, and construction disciplines using Plant 3D® software and Revit® software is possible with the proper workflows. This webcast explores best practices and tips for referencing models between AutoCAD Plant 3D software and Revit software, managing design changes, and optimizing models in the Autodesk Construction Cloud.
Sloped piping is used in gravity-based piping to avoid accumulating substances in the pipeline. It is commonly used in various types of drainage systems or other piping runs that do not have a pumping system or pressurized components. The pipe is sloped downwards away from the source and toward the destination so that the substance flows from the high to the low point due to the force of gravity. In AutoCAD® Plant 3D, you can set the rise and run for the slope when routing pipe or modify the pipe slope in existing runs.
AutoCAD® Plant 3D stores all of the data for your P&ID’s and 3D Models in a live SQL database running in the background. The Data Manager in Plant 3D lets you see all of this intelligent information in a user-friendly interface, enabling you to modify the data as needed. There are also tools for exporting and importing the data utilizing Excel, plus additional tools for configuring how you view the data and what specific data you would like to export or import. Setting up these configurations will enable users to maintain accuracy while lessening the chance of error within the information used in your project reports and bill of materials.
