New 3-D Plant Design Software

Building and engineering software designer Autodesk Inc. announced the availability of AutoCAD Plant 3D 2010, a product that it says brings the benefits of model-based design to mainstream plant design projects. The vast majority of plant design and engineering projects support the operation, maintenance, and expansion of existing facilities. These projects are typically executed by small teams facing tight time and budget constraints. AutoCAD Plant 3D leverages the familiarity of AutoCAD and the popularity of the.dwg file format, allowing project teams to get up and running quickly, share design information more easily, and finish projects faster.
