Autodesk Announces Availability of AutoCAD P&ID 2010 Software

Piping & Instrumentation Diagrams are Faster and Easier with Newest Release of Application for Process Plant Industry

SAN RAFAEL, Calif., April 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

    WHAT:              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.
