I need software that has a library(templates) of technological schematics, pumps, transporters, filters, scrubers etc. Hell, I know you can do it in paint, but surely there has to be one that has a library of all there things? My first go was at autocad, but it doesnt seem to have any libraries ( internal ) and all the external ones are shait.

Something that would help me build something like this.

I'm fairly certain AutoCAD comes pre-loaded with a whole load of schematic symbols in the design centre. I haven't used it for about a year but I'm pretty sure if you just type "DC" into the command line you'll be able to find symbols for a whole load of things. Electrical and electronic symbols, hydraulic symbols, that sort of thing.

EDIT: Failing that, if you still have AutoCAD installed you can just draw the symbols yourself if you know them or can copy them from somewhere and save them as w-blocks. Or is it just regular blocks... I forget. Either way you can make your own library if you need to.

Yeah I know but the whole point of this thread is to find a already made library aka lazzy mans way. It has some loaded stuff in here but its mainly for eletric schematics and such. It seems there arent many around, I'm actualy suprised, a schematic software like that would be very marketable.

There are dozens of Autocad add ons that will work but Pro-E has superior integration.

Also Autocad Inventor has a piping module, but I haven't used it.

Not sure what you want to make here. If it's a physical representation then autocad to make actual drawing (images). If it's actually a tech schematic.. then it's also autocad.. with electrical.

For example.. a pump would be a (M) (motor)..
