SimpleCAD announced the latest AutoCAD compatibility of its piping and equipment libraries for AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT.
"There are lots of piping libraries available on the Web, many disorganized and hard to install," said Erik Zetterberg, owner and director at SimpleCAD. "But the SimpleCAD P&ID Symbol Add-on is a no fuss application. Customers can install the complete library consisting of 200 blocks in one to two minutes; many report even less setup time."
Simple engineering equipment shapes/symbols called P&IDs, or Process and Instrumentation Diagrams, allow piping engineers to show a flow process diagram. Engineers use these P&ID symbols with piping, valves and equipment layouts to show the sequence and describe how the piping system works. A wide range of P&ID symbols are offered though a drop down menu where engineers can pick and choose from different thumbnails.
The SimpleCAD P&ID library allows CAD users to insert the process engineering equipment shapes onto a drawing page. The P&ID library offers a point-and-click interface and will also run in AutoCAD LT without any additional add-ons. The library, consisting of 230 blocks (drawings), is also compatible with AutoCAD 2013 and AutoCAD LT 2013. On screen remote install is also offered to CAD users.
