2D piping software

PROCAD has 3 specialized software applications (P&ID, ISOMETRIC and ORTHO) for those interested in 2D piping drafting and design. We offer software solutions for any size business, or any size project.

If you do not need the entire 3D/2D Plant Design Suite, take a look at our individual 2D drafting applications.

Each 2D piping application comes with essential automation and data management tools. Features include the ability to Auto-Route piping components as well as auto-generate Bill of Materials (BOMs). Other features include easy-to-use pre-built components, like flanges, nozzles, elbows, gaskets, valves and supports to make drafting easier.

Complete set of tools for all your drafting needs

Every software product come with the tools you need to manage your design office. The included modules are to facilitate the creation of pipe specs, design BOM templates and to organize your projects to suit customer standards.

Large variety of piping components

Vast selection of pipe fittings, flanges, valves and supports to make your job easier. Piping components come in flanged, threaded, socket weld and butt-weld configurations.

Spec-driven

Always use compatible pipe specs with background compliance-checking.

Project-driven

Save and control important settings for each project (or each client), which includes drawing units, location of drawing files storage, allowed pipe specs, border drawings, BOMs and many other important settings.

Spec override options

Easily override the operational spec if necessary. Piping application will allow you to proceed with the override after alerting you of the pending deviation from standard practices.

Automation

Draw vessels by simply selecting two corners, sequentially place piping components with AutoRoute, annotate valves and generate BOMs. All made easy by the program’s intelligent background checking.

BOM generation

Generate Bill of Materials (BOMs) for your piping components for a single drawing, a specific line number, or for the complete project. BOM files can be created in multiple formats: inserted into a drawing (DWG format), web format (HTML), Comma Separated Values format (CSV) and in text (TXT) format.

Manage materials

Accurate material reporting ensures materials are ordered on time and correctly charged to each customer’s project. Generate material reports for the entire project, a single or a group of drawings, or report by line number(s). Create material reports in any of the following formats:

  • Comma Separated Values format (CSV)
  • Web format (HTML)
  • External text format (TXT)

P&ID

P&ID is an intelligent 2D drafting software designed to simplify the drafting and design process when creating and managing Piping & Instrumentation Diagrams (P&ID) and Process Flow Diagrams (PFD)

We designed P&ID with ease-of-use, functionality, and team-wide data integration in mind. P&ID is essential software for anyone who likes to work smart and not hard. With intelligent features, like valve BOM generation and automation tools, P&ID helps reduce your design and documentation time.

P&ID also comes with many features that will improve the accuracy of your project data. For example, you can create global lists for project instruments and equipment, as well as make global edits to valve and instrumentation data, which prevents costly mistakes.

You’ll absolutely love all the intelligent automation features that P&ID offers.

    Extensive industry-standard symbols and customized symbols for valves, instruments, instrument lines, instrument balloons and instrument equipment.
  • Line Types and Piping Specs
    Define line types for primary (process) and secondary (utility) lines to be distinguished by color and/or line thickness. Piping specs support pipe sizes from 1/8” to 80” (3mm to 2000mm).
  • Automation
    Draw vessels, exchangers, tanks, flare stacks, pumps, compressors, exchangers, re-boilers and more. Intelligently breaks long instrument balloon edges to ensure your instrument numbers do not bleed into the instrument blocks for clarity.
  • Valve BOMs
    You can easily generate valve BOMs for a single drawing, a specific line number, or for the complete project. Get a head-start on ordering valves, especially the ones with long delivery schedules.
  • Instrument, Equipment and Line List
    Create global lists for project instruments, equipment, or line numbers. You can insert lists in the drawing or export them in multiple file formats.
  • Global Changes
    Make global changes to valve and instrument attribute data to reduce edit time and ensure data accuracy.
