The new software application helps designers to have better access to accurate component and line information
Autodesk, a provider of 2D and 3D software, has announced that it is shipping AutoCAD P&ID 2010 software, the new release of its software application built specifically for creating, modifying, and managing piping and instrumentation diagrams.
AutoCAD P&ID allows design and engineering teams to start working with minimal training, the company said. Common tasks are streamlined and automated to help improve productivity, while designers have better access to accurate component and line information, added Autodesk.
According to the company, AutoCAD P&ID 2010 provides the following new features to further enhance ease of use, help increase designer productivity, and support information accuracy: project setup restricted access – the project administrator or lead can restrict user access to project setup using Microsoft Windows file permissions. Project specific tool palettes setup – tool palette groups may be associated with a specific project so that all users access the standard set of symbols for the project. As each project may require specific sets of symbols, AutoCAD may be used to create custom tool palettes and groups.
In addition to productivity enhancements, AutoCAD P&ID 2010 includes all the functionality of the new AutoCAD 2010 platform and will integrate with the forthcoming AutoCAD Plant 3D product, said Autodesk.
