Modular Plant Design
From rudimentary 2D pipe planning to full-scale 3D piping systems, Solid Edge modular plant design solutions streamline workflow processes. Linked 3D piping, support for piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&ID) and Isogen® output ensure that your products are designed right—the first time, and every time. These software modules allow users to easily capture design intent/logic in a 2D schematic, then develop 2D P&IDs into a comprehensive 3D model of a process plant.
Solid Edge XpresRoute
Solid Edge XpresRoute streamlines the design of mechanical routed systems in a 3D environment, creating pipe and tube routes for the most efficient design. After the design is complete, Solid Edge XpresRoute continues to boost productivity and reduce costs by automatically creating detailed reports, BOMs and other valuable purchasing and manufacturing information.
Solid Edge P&ID Design
Solid Edge P&ID Design provides 2D flow diagram and symbol support to create P&IDs, which are crucial for meeting company and international quality standards. It supports ANSI/ISA, DIN, and EN ISO standards and connects seamlessly to Solid Edge Piping Design where its definitions control automated 3D pipeline creation. Features that are defined in P&ID can be easily placed into a 3D model to provide a complete modular plant design solution.
Solid Edge Piping Design
Solid Edge Piping Design provides automated 3D piping design with comprehensive 3D part libraries and fully automated ISOGEN® output, via PDF format, for plant design. Tubes and hoses of the same length in different assemblies—even if they are flexed differently—maintain the same BOM number, reducing erroneous manufacturing and ordering downstream. The software includes functionality that allows faster packaging design and includes enhanced 3D piping sketch functionality that allows even inexperienced users to easily create 3D sketches.

Solid Edge modular plant design solutions speed the creation of intelligent P&ID schematics and 3D piping models, ensuring that they are designed right first time, every time.
In this demonstration, see how the 2D P&ID schematic can be used standalone or in conjunction with Solid Edge 3D design capabilities for the creation of the 3D representation of the piping model.
In this video, see how intelligent P&ID schematics can be used to drive the 3D Model.
