So a question came up on the Autodesk forums about creating Equipment Templates. If you weren’t aware, you can save the settings of your Equipment to a file and then re-use that information for future Equipment.
Today’s video is in response to a question that came about from a previous YouTube video. We walk through how to add branches to the branch table in a Plant3D Spec. If you don’t add anything to them, Plant won’t know what to do at a branch, so they’re super important!
Last week Autodesk released Plant3D 2021, which now gives us the ability to collaborate our Plant projects in the (Autodesk) Cloud. You will need a subscription to BIM 360 Design for all of it to work though. Check out how to setup the project in our YouTube video below
If you’re looking to do a Plant3D Project with large coordinates, don’t! There is a problem in AutoCAD where it doesn’t like working with large coordinates, and this will flow down into Plant3D when running Isometrics, or even just modelling. Check out the example I did in the video below
So I was looking on the forums the other day, and the question came up about having more Plant3D data in Navisworks. DWG only gives so much, but DWFX gives you so much more…
If you’re using Recap on a Plant3D Project and don’t have the ability to use a third party package to find the centreline of pipe, you can do it from AutoCAD itself
For Isometrics in Plant3D, you’ll want to lock them so that they start from one point all the time, check out how to do it in the video below
There’ll come a time when you need to add some Location Points to your Isometrics in Plant3D, and this is how you do that.
The third video for this week about Plant3D Isometrics talks about Floor and Insulation Symbols
Let’s have a look at adding Reference Dimensions to our Plant3D Isometrics
