2D P&ID drawings

N/A

Does Solid Edge free 2d drafting software let you draw P&ID drawing. Process/Plant
and Instumentation drawing for a chemical plant. I work in an ammonia plant and
I am an operator. I have been for 27 year. I have been at this plant for almost
2 years. They have extensive testing in all areas of the plant. Part of the testing
is to draw from memory the part of the plant you are testing out of. I need to do
my own drawing as I trace the plant out. I am not an engineer and do not know how
to use cad. I need symbols for valve types and instrumentation and to be able to
draw tanks and exchanger etc. Nothing dramatic. The drawing will be for my use only.
Let me know if this program will do what I need or what will. Thank you

It will allow you to draw them as all you need are blocks of the correct
symbols and a variety of linetypes and colors. Solid Edge comes with some
sample block libraries that may have what you need. If it does not, then
you can purchase a commercially available block library that does or you can
create them yourself. If someone in your company already creates these
drawings, they may already have the correct block library for you to use.
