Autodesk accredited AutoCAD Plant 3D training course for beginners, teaching how to build and maintain 3D process plant models, and create content for use in 3D process plant models.
The AutoCAD Plant 3D toolset is used by designers and engineers to model and document process plants in 3D. Armada's AutoCAD Plant 3D course provides a thorough grounding in the application and its key features.
- Building steel structure models.
- Creating equipment models.
- Create piping components.
- Project configuration.
- Working with data and using the Data Manager.
- Isometrics, orthographics and catalogues.
AutoCAD Plant 3D training is hands-on and practical.
Our trainers are all Autodesk accredited and will teach the necessary theory, and demonstrate techniques step-by-step. You then practice the techniques taught on a computer running AutoCAD Plant 3D.
There is plenty of time to ask questions, and you can take away all the files you create.
Self-funding delegates can pay by interest-free staged payments. Simply pay 10% deposit when booking and the remainder over 12 monthly installments. No hidden charges or fees - you only pay for advertised course fee!
We also host this course in our popular Live Online format, at a discounted rate.
Suitability - Who should attend?
This Plant 3D course is ideal for new users to Plant 3D.
Delegates should be familiar with the fundamentals of standard AutoCAD. If you don’t have this knowledge, we recommend you attend Armada's AutoCAD Essentials training first.
A basic knowledge of process or piping industry practice is beneficial but not essential.
