ACC Support for PlantReporter and PlantDataManager

This article describes the support of Plant Collaboration projects with PlantDataManager 6.1 and PlantReporter 6.1.

PlantDataManager and PlantReporter support collaboration projects directly now. Currently there are two factors (due to the limitations by Autodesk) you need to be aware of:

  1. The support is available for AutoCAD Plant 3D 2023 or higher.
  2. The collaboration project must have been downloaded to your local work folder at some point, but there is no need, that the local project is up to date.

You will find more detailed information under Using ACC/BIM projects in out documentation.


With PlantDataManager and PlantReporter, collaboration projects can now be opened even if they are not yet in the local work folder. The projects are then first downloaded and then opened. AutoCAD Plant 3D 2023 is still required.

The following video shows the different workflows that typically occur when using PlantDataManager or PlantReporter.
