Autocad 3D Plant Equipment Library or Pack?

I was trying AutoCAD PLANT 3D (trial) for 3 days.

As I understood from tutorials, Autodesk forum ... etc, if I want to add a pressure relief valve, I should create it from "Create Equipment" part. Am I right?


When I was seeking the Create Equipment section, there are only a few equipments. Pump section is good, but other choices are so poor, I think.


Is there any other easy way to adding a pressure relied valve? Maybe a catalog, library or packs...

Relief valve is not equipment is valve, therefore is necessary add this component from spec.

Thanks for your response ybogdanov.
Yes, you are right, I'm sorry.

On the other hand, if we change this question according to spec editor; is it possible to import a catalog, a library or pack for like these simple, basic valves...etc.

I think that; it's not a complex valve type.

You don't need to import anything. Open a catalog, and look for the "Create New Component" button. There are pre-defined templates you can use for various fittings and valves, or you can use your own custom geometry.


Have a look on Plant Exchange at some of the Plant videos on how to make new components in the Spec and Catalog editor.
