Plant 3D Multiple Pipe Designers

Hello all. I'm new to the forum and just trying to get started and informed on how you setup and use Plant 3D. We are coming from PDMS where we can have as many people in the model routing pipe as there are licenses. What is the best way to set up Plant 3D so that we can utilize multiple pipers at once? Are people making each individual pipe it's own drawing or what? Just need to know the best way to split everything up. Or at least some of the better options....

Have a look at splitting piping models to areas and maybe sub areas, depending on how many people are working on the project. I also have customers who do it by Service also.


Its a combination of size of project, how many people, and how many people in each discipline. So you might have 6 piping models, 12 equipment models and 8 structural models all XREF'd to one another.
