Our company is looking at getting into the 3d Plant market. In this day and age of so many software options, with Plant 3D being one of the major players, how does it compare - Advantages / Disadvantages?
What is the learning curve of one who is very experienced using 2d CAD and Civil 3D?
How does it operate with other Autodesk verticals (revit, civil 3d, etc..)
Any feedback will be appreciated.
There are many factors that need to be weighed with a decision to choose the right software that is right for you. Have you reached out to one of our resellers yet? Autodesk resellers offer service, insight, training, and support wherever our customers live and work across the world. Here is the link find a reseller near you.
To be clear, we have done our due diligence - Plant 3D seems most sensible for us. I was just trying to get some information and experiences from actual users. As most are aware, any reseller will tell you that their's is the best option - not always, but in most instances this is the case.
a quick forum search will give you all you need to know. Quite a few posts already comparing the main piping software.
That being said, I like P3D, but I havn't tried any other piping software. Found it very easy to pick up moving from straight autocad.
Minor point - Revit is *not* a vertical product, as it is not AutoCAD at heart. Not even based on AutoCAD. You can't load Revit content directly into any AutoCAD vertical, whether Civil3D, AutoCAD, or Plant3D.
