The PlantEngineer Basic Edition is equipped with the “Project Assistant” feature.

With the PlantEngineer Basic Edition, you can get started with the drawing process “out of the box” without any knowledge of CAD. Draw intelligent flow diagrams and P&IDs with ISO 10628, DIN 2429, and your own symbols. Automatically generate component lists in Microsoft Excel.

Quick to get started, easy to learn, intuitive to use

Install PlantEngineer and Microsoft Visio in just a few minutes and get started with drawing flow diagrams and P&IDs straight away.

Intelligent features such as easy pipe splitting and recombining allow you to work seamlessly. The connection points of the symbols automatically adapt to the grid to make scaling easier. The autonozzle function automatically adds nozzles between apparatuses and aggregates or lines. Components are automatically labelled in accordance with DIN 28000 and can be renumbered.
