About PlantStream®

PlantStream® is a 3D CAD software with strengths in auto routing for spatial design in plant engineering, including layout planning, piping, civil & architectural work, as well as electrical & instrumentation. It combines the expertise of Chiyoda Corporation, a major player in the plant engineering industry, and Arent Inc., a 3D CAD specialist, to address various design challenges in the plant engineering sector. PlantStream® employs routing algorithms based on industry design knowledge, enabling the rapid and accurate design of piping and cables. This has reduced the time required for design, allowing around 1,000 pipes to be automatically designed in just one minute, instead of the two hours it previously took to design each pipe. Presently, it is used by over 30 companies, both domestic and international, in the engineering and plant owner sectors.
