Help yourself by minimizing design duplication by leveraging data created in diagramming while speeding up the 3D design process.  

New capabilities with Diagramming to 3D include: 
  • Runs that are defined in a P&ID diagram, are stored in Teamcenter and can be used to drive the 3D routing process
  • A diagram cross selection window with the assists the 3D process
  • A handy completion status during 3D routing
  • Users can choose what 2D run to bring into 3D

hi sir


Designing 2D Piping Systems with P & ID Designer is fast and easy.


I would like to ask how to automatically bring the flange into 3D when converting to 3D?




Tank parts are not included in the "run" .

How to put the correct specification tank in 3d according to p & id.


thank you sir

I have forwarded your comments and questions to the Product Manager for NX P&ID.


He will add his comments, but from my knowledge we have libraries of intelligent 2D standard equipment which have links to the 3D world, so my using "Place Part" NX pulls the correct 3D representation from the routing application, whether a pump or tank or valve etc.
