OpenPlant Isometrics Manager CONNECT Edition

Standalone, Automated Piping Isometric drawings Software

Openplant Isometric Manager CONNECT Edition (OPIM) is the first software to extract intelligent isometric information from any design system’s 3D model and do so automatically and in real-time. It provides management control capabilities for pipe models and isometrics from OpenPlant, Bentley plant products, PDMS, SmartPlant, and PDS.

* OpenPlant Isometric Manager is included in AutoPIPE Advanced CONNECT Edition.

** There are OpenPlant Isometrics Manager for both AuotPLANT Modeler and OpenPlant Modeler CONNECT Edition.

*** OpenPlant Isometric Manager is not AutoPLANT Isometrics or AutoPLANT AutoISOGEN.


  • Keep your designers more focused on a design by giving document control or non-engineers the power to produce isometrics outside the design application
  • Ensure team members have the latest isometric models through integration with ProjectWise for document management and distribution
  • Create and manage your project’s isometric deliverables with less effort using OpenPlant Isometrics Manager. The software allows you to:
  • Increase the quality and accuracy of your isometric drawings with OpenPlant Isometrics Manager. Save time with the software’s ability to extract intelligent isometrics from multiple 3D sources. Improve efficiency on your projects and reduce costs through the interoperable and collaborative nature of the software.
  • Prepare isometrics quickly and keep up to date with design revisions faster using automatic drawing production
  • Provide rich engineering data over the entire project lifecycle, with intelligent isometrics that contain component tagged information, including tag number, line number, manufacturing item code, and material
  • Lower software costs by using one application to create isometrics from any ISO 15926-enable 3D application including OpenPlant and AutoPLANT


Can OpenPlant Isometrics Manager create a PCF file to use with other software systems?

  *Yes, OpenPlant Isometrics Manager has an option to create a PCF with every isometric that is generated.

  *The PCF can then managed by ProjectWise similar to how the isometric drawing is handled.

Can OpenPlant Isometrics Manager file open in AutoPipe?

  *Yes, OpenPlant Isometrics Manager generates PCF file to get it readable in AutoPipe.

If I change a model after the isometric was produced, does the isometrics drawing get automatically updated?

  *No, we do not plan on providing automatic synchronization of isometric drawing data due to model changes.

  *We do however plan on providing consistency checks between the isometric and the modeled piping components based on design states in future versions.

Can I create isometrics directly from OpenPlant Modeler?

  *Yes, with the latest release of OpenPlant Modeler SS6 Isometric creation is done with in session.This allows non-piping (lower cost) project participants to produce isometrics.

Also, this provides an opportunity to create piping isometrics from other plant design toolset via i-models.
