OpenPlant Modeler

3D Plant Design and Modeling Software

Perform Multidiscipline 3D Modeling

Quickly and easily create 3D plant models with parametric equipment modeling, specification-driven piping, HVAC, electrical cable trays, and structural steel libraries, in an open, intuitive, and collaborative environment.

What is OpenPlant Modeler?

OpenPlant Modeler enables you to quickly and easily perform 3D designs of your plant piping, HVAC, and mechanical and electrical equipment in an open and collaborative digital twin environment by leveraging Bentley’s iTwin framework.

You can perform collaborative plant engineering. ​Interoperability ensures plant design data and construction deliverables are available anytime for your project team members to quickly find, share, and use. The collaborative environment allows users to check out model components, make updates, and check them in.​
