AutoCAD® Plant 3D 2016 Training Course

(now includes the AutoCAD 2016 Essentials Series)
AutoCAD® Plant 3D 2016 teaches the use of AutoCAD Plant 3D 2016 as a tool for engineers in the power and process industry. You will gain all the necessary skills needed to build 3D models that are based on, and linked to, process and instrumentation diagrams. Lessons cover adding intelligent symbology to create process and instrumentation diagrams; annotating and validating a P&ID; project management tools to help speed up design; 3D modeling tools; analysis tools for optimal system performance; and collaboration tools. Covering over 172 individual video tutorials and over 12 hours of instructor-led training, your instructor, David Butts, will guide you through the tools and features of AutoCAD Plant 3D 2016 used to create accurate, coordinated plant layout designs.

This training package includes 2 courses:

  1. AutoCAD Plant 3D 2016 Training - 12 Hours
  2. AutoCAD 2016 Essentials Training (for beginners) - 15 Hours

This training covers the following areas:

  • Getting Started | Working with Projects | Creating Process and Instrumentation Diagrams
  • Modifying a P&ID | Annotating a P&ID | Creating a 3D Model | Defining Isometric Views
  • Defining Orthographic Views | Validating a Project | Managing a Project
  • Customizing Projects | Understanding Project Data | Customizing Tags and Annotation
  • Understanding Line Segments and Groups | Customizing Project Templates
  • Publishing and Printing Project Drawings | Using the Report Creator | Using the Spec Editor

Features & Benefits of AutoCAD Plant 3D 2016 Training CBT:

  • Use at Your Office or at Home
    Training software can be installed on a PC or laptop.
  • Powerful Keyword Search
    Quickly locate relevant lessons or reference seldom used commands.
  • Sort Lessons By Skill Level
    Work your way from Beginner to Advanced level topics.
  • Exercise Files
    Make the most of your learning experience by opening the included exercise files directly in your own software (if you own a copy of the AutoCAD software) while following along with the instructor-led video tutorials; this training does not come with the AutoCAD software.
