About PLANTo3.

PLANTo3 is a plugin for both AutoCAD and Revit and offers many new tools to simplify and automate you day to day work in AutoCAD PLANT3D. It also allows you to export PLANT3D all piping components in addition to steel members to native Revit family elements.  PLANTo3 offers an easy and intuitive Bill of Materials generator with pricing capability. 

Download and Installation

First step is to download PLANTo3 and install it on your computer. You must have AutoCAD PLANT3D versions 2024, 2023, 2022 or 2021 installed as well. Installation is easy, just follow the default steps. The installer will NOT run automatically, you need to run it manually by double clicking on the MSI file downloaded.

After installation is successful, PLANTo3 is automatically added to both AutoCAD PLANT3D and Revit's ribbon. When you try to run any command for the first time, the program will ask you to enter your free trial credentials. Click on the button on the left to submit a form to us where you can specify your email and the password of your choosing. Please select PLANTo3 from the form list.

Creates new plant/building property lines that can be used to create column grids and stick frame for the steel structure. It also allows you to modify existing property line boundary.

Column Grids

Creates column grids and stick frames. It also creates elevation marks on stick frame as a guide when laying out pipe lines and insert structural members and other components. Stick frame can be generated automatically using an existing property line, column grids and structure levels (discussed next). You can specify stick column extensions as well as stick column footing extensions. Once the stick frame is generated, you can use another command to create steel members by selecting stick frame elements.
