SAN RAFAEL, Calif., April 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --
WHAT: AutoCAD P&ID 2010: Autodesk today 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. Built on the AutoCAD 2010 platform, AutoCAD P&ID is familiar and easier to use, allowing design and engineering teams to start working with minimal training. Common tasks are more streamlined and automated to help boost productivity, while designers have easier access to more accurate component and line information. 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. Curved schematic lines - Polylines with arcs, filleted polylines, and splines can be converted to form curved SLINEs. This feature is useful for showing tubing and flexible hose piping. Inline equipment - ISO and DIN Equipment such as pumps, compressors, blowers, and filters can be inserted into pipelines. Equipment will break the pipeline into two with different line numbers and be correctly oriented along the proper flow direction. End connections for inline instruments - End connections - flanged, welded, socket welded, and threaded, among others - can be applied on control valves and inline instruments Japanese Industrial Standard instrumentation symbols - A Japan (metric) project template is available that includes ISO and JIS Z 8204, the Japanese Industrial Standard instrumentations symbols. In addition to these 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. Includes all functionality of new AutoCAD 2010 Platform AutoCAD P&ID 2010 includes the intuitive interface and all of the functionality of the new AutoCAD 2010 platform. AutoCAD 2010 enables designers to more easily create innovative designs with the addition of new free-form design tools and offers new PDF Import and Underlay and other enhanced publishing features; new parametric drawing tools; and 3D printing. Integrated AutoCAD P&ID and AutoCAD Plant 3D environment AutoCAD P&ID and the forthcoming AutoCAD Plant 3D can share a single integrated project, making data exchange smoother and more seamless. Piping designers can review AutoCAD P&ID data and process designers can review AutoCAD Plant 3D data. Both share a common user interface and components -- such as Project Manager and Data Manager -- making learning and using easier. CUSTOMER REFERENCE: Wastech Controls & Engineering, Inc. "As long-time users of AutoCAD, we have been able to maximize the added value of AutoCAD P&ID very quickly," said Kevin Holm, vice president of operations at Wastech, a leading process system integrator specializing in the design and manufacture of industrial wastewater treatment and chemical delivery systems for solar, pharmaceutical and semiconductor facilities. "The new features in AutoCAD P&ID 2010 will help us to continue to increase our productivity and profitability by helping to expedite our work with P&IDs. As our customers strive to achieve zero- discharge in their industrial manufacturing processes, our innovative technologies are increasingly essential and our P&IDs are the roadmaps that help us achieve efficient delivery of our systems." WEBSEMINAR On May 28, 2009 from 10:00 AM to 10:45 AM Pacific, Autodesk Reseller KETIV Technologies will host a webcast, "Wastech Controls Accelerates Design Process with Autodesk Plant Solutions."
