    Welcome to the Krew Jason. I’m sure we’ll be doing a ton of back and forth with Plant 3D, and a grats to Brad for elevating from n00b status, lol.

  3. Welcome to the Krew, Noo Bee Jay Dee! You’ve managed to keep up with the madness! (Thus far…*mwaahhhahahahahahh*) Here’s to loads more laughs!

    (Aww… and little Bradley’s all growed up!! *proud*)

    Jason, How does Autocad P&ID compare to SmartPlant P&D, glossed over it recently with an Acad rep and I was positively impressed. What is your take as you have used it more into depth I take it?

    • Jd says:


      I’ve been impressed with ACAD P&ID so far. It’s essentially AutoCAD with all of the tools needed to easily create P&IDs. Anyone familiar with AutoCAD and knowledge of PFDs and P&IDs can pick it up quickly.

      Comparing ACAD P&ID (APID) to SmartPlant P&ID (SPPID), I would say that they both have their advantages/disadvantages.

      The learning curve for APID is a less steep than SPPID and with it being built on top of AutoCAD there is a lot of opportunity for programming and customization. Not to say you can’t do custom programming with SPPID, but to fully take advantage of SPPID with SP3D (linking P&ID data to 3D model) it requires SmartPlant Foundation. With APID and Plant 3D, you can use object mapping and also validate between the two right out of the box.

      I think the P&ID symbols for SPPID provide better functionality, only because the pipe points in SPPID can adjusted to orient symbols and labels when they are placed. I’ve had difficulty with that in APID.

      I’ve had to use workarounds in both software packages to make the software do what I want, so as always there is room for improvement!
