    I deal mostly with the mechanical side but technically we do chemical engineering, waste water treatment plants and equipment, I'm on the solids end of the handling.

    Ahhhhhhh...I did a multiyear stint with a consulting environmental/engineering company concentrating on municipal and industrial wastewater systems. Everything from wastewater treatment plants, pumping stations and force mains, to filter presses, sludge handlers and chemical treatment of wastewater from plating facilities.

    we actually build filter presses, multiple kinds, I work with dryers however, we turn your poo into fertalizer pellets, I'm almost afraid to ask who that was you worked with, chances are they have hired us for a job of some sort at some time.

    I'm in Connecticut. The big jobs were for East Lyme and Suffield. We also did another big job in Warwick, Rhode Island.

    Poo? Are you related to Mike Rowe of "Dirty Jobs" fame? LOL

    If you did not see any difference between AutoCAD Vanilla and AutoCAD P&ID I'm afraid you did not see all of AutoCAD P&ID. I have also written an P&ID application for AutoCAD and it uses blocks and attributes. Yes you can use attributes to create your reports but it is really not that easy and defiantly not dynamic.

    Here are some of the features I really like from AutoCAD P&ID.

    1. My favorite is the Project manager where I can add and subtract data from any of the P&ID components and it does not have to be at the start of a project. Also I can change the symbol for any of the components and the next time a drawing in that project is opened up it will update that drawing with the latest symbols and will also update new data fields if added. Not so easy with attributed blocks.

    2. Yes Automatically breaking the line when a symbol is inserted is nice but healing the line when it's removed is good also. Also you can use the grip to move the block and it keeps it's break. Also you can add rules so that the appropriate lines break for each other based on a priority number.

    3. When you are drawing you are building your reports in the background. Yes attributes can be extracted to build a report. But go make a couple of revisions and see how good your reports are. With AutoCAD P&ID your report are live so it is ready for printing at any time. Also your equipment list is live and ready anytime. Say you wanted more information added to your reports all you have to do is add the fields to the project manager and now your reports will have those fields instantly.

    These are just 3 of my favorites. One thing you said was how easy it was to operate. That is not always the case when it comes to intelligent P&ID's and the main reason a lot of companies do not use them.

    You maybe able to draw a P&ID quicker than AutoCAD P&ID but when it comes to revisions or report building you will not be able to keep up. .

    I would look at AutoCAD P&ID and even CADWorx P&ID and see what they offer over vanilla AutoCAD you will be amazed. I hope this helps.

    I was an AutoCAD P&ID reseller.

    I am now self employeed and have no ties to Autodesk or a Reseller.

    I have used all the different P&ID packages out there and know what the advantages are over Vanilla Autocad with either AutoCAD P&ID or CADWorx P&ID.

    Most of my work now is using CADWorx and 3D modeling.

    I did not reply to this thread because I was a reseller but because I did not want you to be misinformed.
