AutoCAD P&ID 2010 released

Still new AutoCAD 2010 based products are released. This time it is time for AutoCAD P&ID 2010. Wondering when AutoCAD Plant 3D 2010 will come…

There are project improvements, support for curved schematic lines, inline equipment, end connections for inline instruments and more as can be seen below.

Press release: Autodesk Announces Availability of AutoCAD P&ID 2010 Software

                       AutoCAD P&ID 2010: Autodesk today announced that it is
                       shipping AutoCAD P&ID 2010 software, the new release of
                       its software application built specifically for
                       creating, modifying, and managing piping and
                       instrumentation diagrams. Built on the AutoCAD 2010
                       platform, AutoCAD P&ID is familiar and easier to use,
                       allowing design and engineering teams to start working
                       with minimal training. Common tasks are more
                       streamlined and automated to help boost productivity,
                       while designers have easier access to more accurate
                       component and line information.

                       AutoCAD P&ID 2010 provides the following new features
                       to further enhance ease of use; help increase designer
                       productivity; and support information accuracy:

                       Project setup restricted access - The project
                       administrator or lead can restrict user access to
                       Project Setup using Microsoft Windows File Permissions.

                       Project specific tool palettes setup - Tool palette
                       groups may be associated with a specific project so
                       that all users access the standard set of symbols for
                       the project.  As each project may require specific sets
                       of symbols, AutoCAD may be used to create custom tool
                       palettes and groups.

                       Curved schematic lines - Polylines with arcs, filleted
                       polylines, and splines can be converted to form curved
                       SLINEs.  This feature is useful for showing tubing and
                       flexible hose piping.

                       Inline equipment - ISO and DIN Equipment such as pumps,
                       compressors, blowers, and filters can be inserted into
                       pipelines.  Equipment will break the pipeline into two
                       with different line numbers and be correctly oriented
                       along the proper flow direction.

                       End connections for inline instruments - End
                       connections - flanged, welded, socket welded, and
                       threaded, among others - can be applied on control
                       valves and inline instruments

                       Japanese Industrial Standard instrumentation symbols -
                       A Japan (metric) project template is available that
                       includes ISO and JIS Z 8204, the Japanese Industrial
                       Standard instrumentations symbols.

                       In addition to these productivity enhancements, AutoCAD
                       P&ID 2010 includes all the functionality of the new
                       AutoCAD 2010 platform and will integrate with the
                       forthcoming AutoCAD Plant 3D product.

                       Includes all functionality of new AutoCAD 2010 Platform
                       AutoCAD P&ID 2010 includes the intuitive interface and
                       all of the functionality of the new AutoCAD 2010
                       platform. AutoCAD 2010 enables designers to more easily
                       create innovative designs with the addition of new
                       free-form design tools and offers new PDF Import and
                       Underlay and other enhanced publishing features; new
                       parametric drawing tools; and 3D printing.

                       Integrated AutoCAD P&ID and AutoCAD Plant 3D
                       environment AutoCAD P&ID and the forthcoming AutoCAD
                       Plant 3D can share a single integrated project, making
                       data exchange smoother and more seamless.  Piping
                       designers can review AutoCAD P&ID data and
                       process designers can review AutoCAD Plant 3D data.
                       Both share a common user interface and components --
                       such as Project Manager and Data Manager -- making
                       learning and using easier.
