Description

Description

This class will cover the benefits of maintaining the connection between your AutoCAD Plant 3D software catalog, spec, and 3D models, and how to implement workflows to ensure your team’s ability to update model components from the specs and catalogs. We will explore in-depth how to establish and maintain a link between the AutoCAD Plant 3D catalog and spec. Also, we will cover how AutoCAD Plant 3D software establishes a link between the model and spec components and proper workflows for keeping this connection viable during the various types of changes typical to a plant design project. We will also explore the behavior of the PLANTSPECUPDATECHECK command and how you can use it to keep your models up to date with spec and catalog modifications.
