As much as I love SW, I know there are better programs for this type of work that are more specific to your industry.
I know there are better programs like hysis for flow modeling, there's not a high priority to get it done. Basically the core reason for using Solidworks is for acurate models / building placement / to get piping dimensions and setups for our facilities. I'm just curious what else I can do with Solidworks beyond that, though.
SW won't create your P&IDs or ISOs.
Things SolidWorks can do...
1. 3D part modeling
2. 3D assembly modeling
3. Surface Modeling
4. Sheet metal modeling
5. Mold design
6. Routing and piping
8. Photorealistic rendering
10. Walk throoughs
12. Flow analysis (not fluid animation)
14. Motion analysis (kinematics)
15. 2d drawing creation
16. export files for rapid prototyping
I am probably missing an item or two but this is a pretty comprehensive list of capabilities...
We have solition which creates P&ID in SolidWorks.
