PlantSpace will continue to receive minor enhancements and TR developement support.
OpenPlant is not a replacement for AutoPLANT, which will continue to be developed and enhanced based on the AutoCAD platform.
However, because of the open architecture used with OpenPlant, Bentley will provide new capabilities under the OpenPlant brand name that will be applicable to both OpenPlant and AutoPLANT users. For example, the OpenPlant PowerPID SS2 release (Nov 2009) is fully integrated with the AutoPLANT design environment through the Project database, allowing a user to create P&IDs using OpenPlant while creating 3D models using AutoPLANT PDW
OpenPlant can be implemented using SQL Server or Oracle. For specific versions review the ReadMe file for ProjectWise Integration Server.
No ObjectEnabler will be required to view the 3D models.
Initially OpenPlant will work with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 32-bit and 64 bit versions but will run in 32-bit mode. Once the Power Platform fully supports 64-bit OpenPlant will be able to run in that mode also.
Also this provides and opportunity to create piping isometrics from other plant design toolset via i-models.
All piping connections or joints can be configured to carry identification data. These joints can be configured, based on end preperations, to carry additional information such as weld types and unique numbering.
