Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Learn how a process and instrumentation diagram is defined in AutoCAD Plant 3D, and learn how to determine the key data to be shared
  • Understand how to define a hub in the A360 environment, and how to prepare for sharing this data with other modeling tools
  • See how the Revit model is associated with a hub project, and how the P&ID model interface is defined
  • Examine how design data is tracked and coordinated during the modeling process

Description

Description

In the design world, it's not uncommon that key project data is stored in application silos and requires a great deal of manual coordination. Autodesk has taken the first steps for architecture, engineering, and construction projects to make data available to multiple applications at once-by introducing a connected workflow that shares data from schematic diagrams with a Revit project. The Revit P&ID Modeler breaks silos down by letting the user begin with P&ID schematics in AutoCAD Plant 3D software to create intelligent, data-rich diagrams. The schematic data is hosted in the A360 cloud-computing platform cloud and is referenced by Revit project models. The 3D model consisting of elements such as piping, equipment, and accessories is then developed using information defined in the schematic, such as pipe size, pipe type, valve type, and equipment IDs. As the model is developed and the schematic iterated, the user receives feedback to help ensure consistency and that design intent is maintained. Join us to see the next evolution of Autodesk design tools.
