Nuclear Plant Layout

    Does anyone know what software is used to draw nuclear plant pipes, electrical systems, turbines, etc? Can Procad (3dsmart) be useful?

    Hi there,

    Each NPP designer in this world will probably use something different. There is not one standard CAD software in this world.

    That would probably work, and it's 2D cousin - http://www.procad.com/2d-software.php [Broken]

    There is a similar product from Dassault - DraftSight

    AutoCAD (http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/pc/index?id=14960879&siteID=123112)

    ProE (http://www.ptc.com/products/proengineer/)

    CADPipe is yet another - http://www.cadpipe.com/
