The symbols here:

Symbol Keys

 

http://www.pdoteam.com/downloads/Symbol+Keys

 

within the aricle on how to create new symbols:

http://www.pdoteam.com/2011/10/create-new-symbols-for-isometrics-in-autocad-plant-3d/

 

The end type descriptions are available within Plant 3D.  Type in PLANTENDCODES at the command line.

Re: PLANT 3D SPEC EDITOR ABBREVIATION AND ISO SYMBOL LIST SOMEWHERE?

Did I miss something, I did not see a list that matched what I'm seeing in the spec editor.  This is new to me so I may not understand without more clarification.  Example Iso Type  ELBOW, Iso Symbol Key ELBW.  As I am trying to create a FRP spec I have to open the ASME catalog to check and see what is there to know what to put in my new catalog. I'm also unsure of what to put in for Gasket Std and under End types what does MJM, MJP and PFS mean?

  Thanks for what you sent but I'm hoping for an answer thats a little more detailed and complete.

So, on the end codes, entering PLANTENDCODES at the command line brings up this dialog:

The end types are used to create joints so the program knows how components connect.

I posted the table so people so see the available types.

As far as creating new items, that's what all of us do, we find the most similar component, and use that type and skey.  The type is used to organize items in the BOM, and then the skey is the block that gets inserted. So, unless you get into custom stuff, you can choose the item you want from the type list, and pair it with the appropriate symbol.  Some items only have one field, like PIPE or GASKET is in the type field, but there is no corresponding key.  Most of what people learn is just by looking at the existing catalogs.
