Many owners/operators of process plants are required to use or implement specific design and engineering applications like AVEVA PDMS. Learn how workflows and third-party tools can help to overcome the challenges of data exchange between Autodesk, Inc., and non-Autodesk Plant Solutions in a multidisciplinary design environment. Learn how we can use AutoCAD Plant 3D software and Revit software to modify and enrich an existing plant design management system (PDMS) project, and how to hand over AutoCAD Plant 3D and Revit models in PDMS format, eliminating the need for remodeling. See how existing PDMS models may be brought into AutoCAD Plant 3D and Revit for work sharing. Also, see how we can convert PDMS catalogue/spec databases into AutoCAD Plant 3D to be used in projects, and how AutoCAD Plant 3D models are converted into intelligent PDMS models using the XMpLant format. Revit is often a preferred tool for architectural and structural design, and Revit models may also be converted into intelligent PDMS models. We will share sample projects and customer stories.

Developing a 3D model of a part or assembly may be accomplished with standard computer resources. However, modeling a large plant can quickly become taxing on most computers and make rendering the full model problematic. As such, reducing the model to subassemblies may increase the performance and rendering time. But what governs the break point when defining a subassembly? And what about other aspects of facility modeling, such as civil, or architectural feature sets? During this roundtable discussion, we will explore the various aspects of properly managing a plant model, and share insights on the best practices for bringing everything together to complete the model. This session features AutoCAD Plant 3D.
AutoCAD P&ID piping design software and AutoCAD Plant 3D design software create a whole lot of data while you’re drawing. This class will show how you start with a simple report and then start grouping and ordering it in the way you need. You will learn how to define the classes you want to use for your report and how to lay out your report. We will also explain the user interface of DevExpress’s Report Designer so you know how to work with the different palettes. This session features AutoCAD P&ID and AutoCAD Plant 3D.
Become a better designer in AutoCAD Plant 3D software by using these tricks of the trade. In this class, you will learn better ways to route pipe, more-efficient ways to develop platforms and structures, tricks to equipment creation using Inventor software for simplifying, and some Catalog editing tricks. This session features AutoCAD Plant 3D and Inventor Professional.
Come ask your questions to a panel of industry and Autodesk, Inc., experts. This panel has done setup and customization for users all over the world, and it is active on the discussion forums. This session features AutoCAD Plant 3D.
Autodesk, Inc.'s, Large Model Viewer provides a platform for visualizing engineering assets on any platform. Large Model Viewer’s virtual-reality support enables immersive visualization experiences that were never possible before. This class will explore how we can integrate enterprise data with design data to provide context for assessments and decisions. It will look at how we can further enhance these contextual experiences by virtual and augmented reality. This session features A360 and AutoCAD Plant 3D. AIA Approved
First, this class will explain why we need data from the database when acquisition rules won’t do it. You will hear about the limitations of acquisition rules, and you’ll see several examples of how data can flow between AutoCAD P&ID software objects. We will also explain why customers needed the various data flows for their daily work. You will see examples of data flowing between instruments, even if those instruments are in different AutoCAD P&ID drawings. And we will show how the Views in your AutoCAD P&ID database look, and how you can use them in your AutoCAD P&ID drawing with PlantLink so the data actually flow. This session features AutoCAD P&ID and AutoCAD Plant 3D.
This presentation will walk you through the journey a natural gas company took implementing AutoCAD Plant 3D plant design software. We will examine the various steps involving your reseller—Autodesk Consultants—along with internal IT resources to better ensure a successful implementation. We will show you a specific pilot project and its journey through a Building Information Modeling (BIM) project life cycle. We will also touch on some additional applications—like AutoCAD P&ID software, Navisworks software, and BIM 360 Glue software—which enhanced our BIM project life cycle. This session features AutoCAD Plant 3D and AutoCAD Plant 3D.
Times are tough, budgets are tight, and teams are lean. The past year has been full of heartache—especially for those working in the petrochemical field. Long gone are the days of $100 oil. Nonetheless, facilities are busy and business must continue. Maintaining facilities on a tighter budget means owners are looking for the best possible return on investment. Technology to the rescue! This class will welcome a variety of real-world stories about how engineering firms are benefiting from their investment in reality capture and Autodesk, Inc.’s, reality-computing workflows.
