  • Tailoring AutoCAD P&ID and AutoCAD Plant 3D 2014-04-28_8-56-55

    While our blog has been pretty quiet lately, I have been working on some other documentation for AutoCAD. We partnered together and will be releasing a new book (it’s only in pdf form) called Tailoring AutoCAD P&ID and Plant 3D (free!).

    The book is laid out with a couple of goals:

    1. Provide a framework to help organize your approach to customization.
    2. Document major facets of the product to give you a whole picture
    3. Include detailed steps on customization items

    This books is a companion of De-Mystifying AutoCAD Isometrics meaning that it does not cover material that is already covered in the Isometrics manual.


    In addition to be a compilation of several documents that were frequently given out, Tailoring AutoCAD P&ID and Plant 3D includes content to bring the pieces together.


    I hope you find great value from the book, and feel free to contact us with any comments!

    I’ll be sure to post when the pdf is available.
