Foremost, I'm a Plant 3D man. But I see a strong market for a program that would 'marry' the usability of Plant 3D with the technical prowess of AutCAD Structural Detailing (ASD) into a program that would put out simple, "single line' structural design drawings - AutoCAD Structural Design. Alternatively, they could either 'dumb down' ASD or 'smarten up' Plant 3D's structural module. We use ASD for our shop fabs, but what we also need is software that will give us simple, structural design drawings with connection (not fabrication) details.I believe this would bridge the gap between Plant 3D and ASD. I think Revit can do something like this, but I'm not sure (I don't use Revit). The Plant 3D structural module 'almost' does what we want with it's Line Model mode, but not quite...
