Not to sure if the powers that be will look at this or not, but thought I would start a user "Wish List" with ideas/thoughts/wishes on how to improve Plant 3D.

Ideas should be hopefully new or improvements on items not pointing out errors in current program. (hopefully AUGI will pick this up at some stage or maybe the community Autodesk is talking about).

Ideas like this.

Cable Trays/Ladders ( working similar to pipes)

Frank,

We've heard this from the first time we presented Plant 3D publicly. It's
one of the top things on our to do list for future versions.

We're also interested in doing something specific for cable tray.

Maintain Status Condition

Items added to a existing line no matter which status it is demolition/existing/new the item being added takes on the status. also if possible a drop down so you can selected the status of the item you are drawing (maybe in the Part Insertion area of the ribbon) Edited by: philip@cosl.co.nz on Jan 7, 2010 1:23 PM

Ability to "inline" equipment ie. any item can have a line number added to it, currently isogen breaks isos at user equipment. (unless i'm doing something wrong LOL) even if isogen auto selects "Non Category Item - NC**" as the iso icon. Edited by: philip@cosl.co.nz on Dec 30, 2009 2:32 PM

Tag Numbers

01-06-2010 04:21 PM in reply to: philip
I have noticed if you supply a tag number to a valve all is good until I change the valve size and the tag resets to ?-? it would be nice for the valve to maintain the Tag number even if pipe/valve size changes. (time consuming having to work your way back though the tags to reenter the tag information).

We use a Type-Number tag system ie. V-0123 (Valve number 0123)

Custom Parts

01-07-2010 05:34 PM in reply to: philip
I think i might of seen this somewhere else, but the ability when creating Custom parts

Valves to be able to select the valve body type not just "Valve , Box or Cylinder" but the likes of Check, Ball etc
Strainers the ability to choose between Y & Basket

and also the ability to choose end type easily ie screwed , flanged or welded (drop down selection)

The ability to convert a solid to a valve, like the equipment uses.

But for valves should be other parameters where you can select the valve properties like:

Body type
Actuator
Hand whell
Flanged
WF
etc...

You can see in the images there is a valve solid from the manufacture but there is no properties. It will not show on ISOGEN.
