Compare Plant 3D vs Revit for Piping Design

March 6, 2019

Do you get asked why you don’t use Revit? Maybe your being pressured to use Revit for piping design? 

As a Plant designer in the Oil and Gas industry I could not imagine trying to design the the plants I worked on in Revit. At Autodesk we often get asked what is the difference between piping design in Revit compared to Plant 3D, and why use one over the other.

The correct answer is as much to do with what you’re going to design, what are your workflow requirements and your construction process than it is to do with feature and functions in the products.

This recording was a webinar for an Enterprise Customer asking this question and trying to understand the differences between Revit and Plant 3D when doing piping design.

This recording is also a good overview of the features and functions of Plant 3D. Share this with your managers or project leads that are asking you the questions.

Reach out to your Autodesk Contacts if you have more questions or want to know more.

    Before working for Autodesk as a Designated Support Specialist, I worked in Brisbane at the Caltex Lytton Drawing Office for over eleven years where I enjoyed a great variety of work experiences as a part of Drawing Office Team. I was second in charge to the drawing office Manager for a number of years and I was regularly delegated managerial responsibility when the Drawing Office Manager is unavailable. I aimed to be a valuable and proactive member of the refinery and Drawing Office team, as I do for any team that I work; I volunteered for and was selected to be the Drawing Office Systems Manager and Vault Manager. I also volunteered as a building First-aider, and area Emergency Muster Point Chief Warden. I enjoyed being involved in Refinery Programs like IIF and the Starlight Foundation fundraising and have also regularly conducted induction training of refinery operators on drawing office related topics and assisted with the development of training materials. The Drawing Office when I left to join the Autodesk team had 22 draftsman to whom I provided most of the drawing office training, induction and technical support. As a Draftsman I worked closely with the Project design teams to reach project goals and have an in depth understanding of the design process. I joined the Australian Navy Cadets (ANC) as a Volunteer in 1997. I have spent time in many different roles including Commanding Officer of TS Magnus. My experiences in the ANC has enabled me to work well as an individual, while also being able to work within a team as a worker and in a leadership role. These skills have been of great value to me at Caltex where I have also been able to further develop these skills. My training as an ANC instructor has also been a great benefit to me the workplace, as I deliver Training on Drawing Office disciplines to the Trainee Operators and work with the CAD users to improve their skills and knowledge.
