  1. Right-click the project in the Main List View, and then select Import AutoCAD Plant 3D Specification Data.

    The Import AutoCAD Plant 3D Specification Data dialog box displays.

  2. Select the Use Spec Catalog option to use the AutoCAD Plant 3D catalog. This is the default option.

  3. Select the units from the Target Unit list.

    The software automatically selects the Source Unit, and the Source Unit list becomes unavailable.

    The software populates CADWorx Components only when there are components available in the AutoCAD Plant 3D specification for the units you selected. The unit you select must be the same as the units in your chosen specification. If no components match the unit, the CADWorx Components box remains empty.

  4. Click the Plant 3D List Files ellipsis.

    The Open dialog box displays.

  5. Select the AutoCAD Plant 3D data for import, and then click Open.

  6. Select the Size Table for import. If no size table is available, the Target Unit does not match the specification.

    You can click View Detail to view the sizes in the size table and change the outside diameter (OD). For more information, see PLANT 3D Size Table Detail Dialog Box.

  7. Click the plus sign to expand the Component Type list, and then click the check box next to the component that you want to add.

    You can use the Select / deselect all check box to select all the components under CADWorx Components.

    If you want a separate catalog, select the Separate Catalog check box. Click the Separate Catalog file location ellipsis to select a different catalog.

  8. Click Import.

  9. Click OK.
