You'll learn how to create accurate and coordinated plant layout designs. Video lessons cover working with projects, creating process and instrumentation diagrams, modifying and annotating P&ID, creating a 3D model, defining isometric and orthographic views, working with projects and project data, and much more.

This training package includes 2 courses:

  1. AutoCAD Plant 3D 2015 Training - 12 Hours
  2. AutoCAD 2015 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

As a flexible CAD training solution, you can sort the lessons and progress from beginner to advanced topics; or just review seldom used commands and added functionality of new releases.

Features & Benefits of AutoCAD Plant 3D 2015 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
