Tool Palettes in AutoCAD Plant 3D

In AutoCAD Plant 3D tool palettes are used when piping components have to be place, The tool palette functionality allows the user to easily select the desired component and place it in the 3D model Enviroment.

The tool palette can be configured in such a way that the components shown are based on the spec that is present in AutoCAD Plant 3D.

The standard you choose when you create a project dictates which tool palette is displayed when you start the program. for example, if you create a project using the PIP standard, the initial tool palette displayed is the P&ID PIP palette.

You can switch to another tool palette by right hand clicking the tool palette tittle bar and selecting a tool palette. However, not all P&ID symbols that are available in one standard are the same in other standards.
