Interoffice collaboration with Vault
AutoCAD P&ID integrates with Vault data management software for improved interoffice project collaboration.
Faster P&ID drafting
AutoCAD commands work in-context to make P&ID drafting simpler.
Standard symbol libraries
The PIP, ISA, JIS, and ISO/DIN standard symbol libraries are included, and the list can be easily added to or modified to help meet customer or project requirements. Symbol representations are visible in the tool palettes and organized by type for easy symbol selection.
Project standard tag and report formats
Create and customize tags and labels to meet project standards.
Data Validation tool
The Data Validation tool scans P&IDs for consistency of data according to user-definable rules. Items that do not pass these rule checks are highlighted to show designers possible errors. Highlighted data can also be marked to be ignored for future scans.
Fast report generation
Generate line lists, equipment lists, valve lists, instrument lists and custom reports directly from the P&IDs. Format pre-defined reports to meet project standards and generate as needed during the project. The reports use data directly from the P&ID to maintain project data consistency.
Export data to Excel to input engineering data, and then use the Drafter tool to import the data from Excel to update the P&ID. Add data to the P&ID without opening the drawing. Use the data updates for output in reports.
Meets ISO 15926 standard
Autodesk supports organizations such as Fiatech and DEXPI to develop data exchange tools in AutoCAD P&ID that meet the ISO 15926 standard. Read the white paper on Autodesk support for ISO 15926.
Off-page connector management
Intelligent off-page connectors help maintain data consistency of properties across sheets. Icons show whether connected, not connected, or connected but with inconsistencies for data review and correction.
