OpenPlant Modeler CONNECT Edition

3D Plant Modeling and Design software

OpenPlant Modeler CONNECT Edition is the first 3D plant modeling software based-on ISO-15926 natively,

OpenPlant Modeler CONNECT Edition incorporates the advanced capabilities of MicroStation. Uniquely, OpenPlant Modeler natively supports workflows combining all pertinent plant software standards, including, in addition to DGN, RealDWG, point clouds, and PDF.

An accurate, rapid, design engineering solution for 3D plant design. It enhances project teams with mobile information, i-models, and support for multiple formats and data types, such as DGN, DWG, JT, point clouds, and PDF, to provide flexible design and review processes. It is both more versatile and productive than any existing "3-D piping" application.

*OpenPlant Modeler CONNECT Edition is the core 3D Modeling of OpenPlant series, is NOT AutoPLANT Modeler as well.



  • Perform comprehensive design by incorporating piping and instrumentation diagrams with OpenPlant PID
  • Reduce the time and cost required to design your next plant by building a collaborative environment around OpenPlant. Use the software to:
    Deliver integrated designs with modeling of piping, equipment, supports, instrumentation, HVAC, and more
  • Quickly and easily perform 3D design of your piping, HVAC, and electrical equipment with OpenPlant Modeler. Increase project team collaboration and speed up review cycles through the interoperability the software provides with open data models. You can also lower software costs by economically scaling your OpenPlant deployment to fit any size project.
  • Start projects faster by reusing existing designs, models, and associated data and catalogs and specifications from PDS, AutoPLANT, and PlantSpace
  • Avoid errors and rework by sharing design models between OpenPlant and other design tools using an intrinsic ISO 15926 data model
  • Increase the speed and flexibility of collaboration with an environment that supports project teams working together online or independently offline



      Q : WILL OpenPlant replace AutoPLANT?

              A : No, OpenPlant is not a replacement for AutoPLANT. OpenPlant is the next generation of 3D Plant design software.

      Q : WHAT operating systems does OpenPlant support?

              A : Windows 7, 8.1, and 10 with 64-bit fully supports.

      Q : CAN I create isometrics directly from OpenPlant Modeler?

              A : No, Isometric creation is done through the OpenPlant Isometrics Manager (OPIM).

                    *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.

      Q : WHAT is the name of OpenPlant 3D Model review?

              A : Navigator, However, Cloud-platform review so-called PlantSight is now available.
