Project Dalton brings Pipe Flow Design to AutoCAD Plant 3D
Project Dalton is an application developed to accurately and efficiently simulate fluid flow in piping networks. Recently introduced through the Autodesk Labs, Dalton provides a means for design engineers to quickly apply fluid analysis methods to their design models and get nearly instant feedback on system performance.
This tool is available as standalone application or as an add-on within Autodesk AutoCAD Plant 3D. Starting with a standard PCF file, Dalton accesses the information available in the model geometry (pipe length/diameter, elevation, etc.). Dalton’s menu bar then offers simple windows that enable the user to specify additional analysis inputs such as materials, component data, boundary conditions, etc. View the whole In The Fold blog article here.

Plant 3D 2014 Extension 2 - Now Available to Subscription Customers
AutoCAD Plant 3D 2014 Extension 2 is now available to subscription customers.
Autodesk® AutoCAD® Plant 3D 2014 Extension 2 is an extension to AutoCAD Plant 3D 2014 that adds the following functionality:
- Fixed Length Pipe modeling
- Revised modeling for stub ins with correct cut lengths
- Revised P&ID assign tag dialog
- Improved performance for P&ID Off Page connectors
In addition, there have been numerous improvements to isometric generation:
- Annotation and dimensioning optimization
- Improved drawing splitting
- Fixed length Pipe graphics and BOM improvements
- PCF Export enhanced to support custom end types
- Numerous minor bug fixes
- Ortho BOM no longer counts components marked with Existing status
- Report Creator and Data Manager sort P&ID pipe sizes correctly
We have also addressed minor bug fixes not related to isometrics.
New and Updated Content Packs are Available
Four new content packs are available. Updated Nozzle Catalog, IPEX, Spears DWV (Drain, Waste & Vent) and updated ASME Catalogs now include weights.
