We have noted a vulnerability issue to older versions of AutoCAD Plant 3D. The good news is that there is no issue with the newest version 2022. For the versions 2019 – 2021 there is a security hotfix, which you should install. Look for this article for some more information and to get the hotfix.

We have noted that after installing the update AutoCAD Plant 3D 2022.1 it was not possible to open an AutoCAD Plant 3D-Vault-project anymore. Plant 3D 2022 shows the message: “Subscribe to Autodesk BIM Collaborate Pro” dialog, when no valid Autodesk account is signed in.

This is solved by a hotfix. Reach out to this article to get it.

It is out. My colleagues have created this multi-discipline cloud collaboration workflow for plant design. Thanks to them. It shows the multiproduct workflows and the value of what can be done. We are able to deliver an unified digital design platform for you that helps your plant, building and civil divisions to use a single platform.

And again one announcement. This time for all Plant developers and for all who want to become a Plant developer.

A new version of the Plant SDK documentation that covers the 2017 through 2022 releases of AutoCAD Plant 3D is available for download in the AutoCAD P&ID and Plant 3D Developer Center.

A link to download the latest documentation package can be found under both the Learning and Tools sections.

A big thank you to the team!!! 🙂

You might have read our warning from 29th April, that the plain AutoCAD Update 2021.1.1 has caused crashes in AutoCAD Plant 3D 2021. Good news: This issue is solved. In the new Plant 3D Update 2021.1, which will be released today. Also, the new Plant 3D 2021.1 patch itself has integrated the ACAD 2021.1.1 patch. So no need for you to install twice.

Note this warning: Recently the plain AutoCAD Update 2021.1.1 was released but this will crash AutoCAD Plant 3D 2021 during pipe routing. This is already under urgent investigation. For now, don’t install this update. If it is already installed, just uninstall it. We will keep you updated.

2022 is live! And we have some amazing new features implemented. I love them! Maybe you, too? I have created three new videos about the new features in AutoCAD Plant 3D 2022 in our Video Blog Series “Plant 3D with the Experts”.

  • Part 1: It is about Ortho Offset Location and also about Navisworks and the enhanced Plant 3D Object Enabler
  • Part 2: This is about Project Compare: Do you want to compare or synchronize projects?
  • Part 3: The Isometric Dimension Setup is completely rebuild in Project Setup

Hi all,

it is my pleasure to share a new video in our video blog series “Plant 3D with the Experts”. It is about the workflow using Navisworks NWD/NWC Coordination Model. My dear colleague Martin Buss has created this video. Thanks for that, Martin!
