End of Q2 Update: What has been shipped and what’s to come

PlantStream has just wrapped up Q2 2021 and things are smoothly sailing along to expedite FEED projects of our customers. Special thanks to our early user feedback, the DWG exporting and Multi-User support features are now released.

What Users just got

Watch our video update!

PROCESS FLOW VISUALIZATION

  • Now you can easily see which direction fluid moves inside pipes just by pressing the SPACE key.
  • This utilizes PlantStream’s from/to information held within our layout tools and Block Patterns.

AREA CODE

  • Similar to Workspace, you can assign and divide Units by Area Code to manage specific units, pipe racks and equipment areas.
  • You can easily divide, merge and edit Area Codes.
  • When exporting MTO, you can get the numbers by Area Code respectively.

WORKSPACE

  • You can now break your Unit data into Workspaces, allowing other users to work on the same project simultaneously.
  • You can easily go inside/outside the Workspace and break, update, and merge the data freely.

DWG EXPORT

  • You can now export designed plot plans via DWG.
  • In this way, you can easily share the deliverables with cross functional teams without having extra PlantStream licenses.

What’s to come

With the goal of continued support to teams working together, in Q3 we’re putting more emphasis on improving our export experience. This will focus on allowing teams to share the data made in PlantStream with tools downstream, such as PDMS/E3D and more mainstream CAD tools.

That’s far from the only thing we’re working on. Our next mission is to make PlantStream your one stop shop for completing the entire FEED process for your projects. Our target after export improvements is adding in Slope, Loop, U/G features.

Here’s a breakdown of what’s to come:
