Preface to AutoCAD Plant 3D 2016 for Designers PDF

AutoCAD Plant 3D 2016, a product of Autodesk Inc, is a plant layout design software. It is extensively used in the industry to create and modify the P&IDs and 3D models of the process plants.

Built on the AutoCAD platform, this software allows you to carry out the design process in a project-based manner.

The modern toolset available with this software allows designers and engineers, who model and document process plants, to generate and share isometric drawings, orthographic drawings, and materials reports. You can also integrate Plant 3D with Navisworks and can import designs created in Revit and Inventor.

The AutoCAD Plant 3D 2016 for Designers textbook explains the readers to effectively use the designing tools in AutoCAD Plant 3D.

The accompanying tutorials and exercises, which relate to the real-world projects, help you understand the usage and abilities of the tools available in AutoCAD Plant 3D 2016. You will learn how to set up a project, create and edit P&IDs, design a 3D Plant model, generate isometric/orthographic drawings, as well as how to publish and print drawings.

The chapters in this textbook are structured in a pedagogical sequence that makes this textbook very effective in learning the features and capabilities of the software.

Since AutoCAD Plant 3D is based on the AutoCAD platform, a user must have the basic knowledge of AutoCAD. In this textbook, the basic tools of AutoCAD are not explained while explaining the working of Plant 3D tools assuming that the user knows AutoCAD basics.

The Salient Features of this Textbook are as Follows:

Tutorial Approach: The author has adopted tutorial point-of-view and learn-by-doing theme throughout the textbook. This approach guides the users to understand the concepts and processes easily.

Tips and Notes: The additional information related to various topics is provided to the users in the form of tips and notes.

Learning Objectives: The first page of every chapter summarizes the topics that are covered in that chapter.

Self-Evaluation Test, Review Questions, and Exercises: Every chapter ends with Self-Evaluation Test so that the users can assess their knowledge of the chapter. The answers to the Self-Evaluation Test are given at the end of the chapter.

Also, the Review Questions and Exercises are given at the end of each chapter and they can be used by the Instructors as test questions and exercises.

Heavily Illustrated Text: The text in this book is heavily illustrated with about 600 line diagrams and screen capture images.
