Python Cable Tray


Create cable tray scripts and catalogs. The scripts are Python-based cable tray elements. You can use all these scripts to create your own cable trays based on your used standards. Some standard sizes are provided as a sample. Line numbers, bill of material (through the Report Creator) and Isometric drawings are all working like pipes and fittings.



Note: This application uses a custom installer (and not the standard App Store installer).

    Thank you.


  • Database Access Requirements
    Muhammad Shoaib Anjum | septiembre 04, 2021


    I am intending to use it with my plant 3D but I have a simple question. Do they require internet connection to operate. I mean after installation, does one has to have a working internet connection at all times to work with this script. At my workstation in office we are not authorized to access internet so please let me know what are the operation conditions

  • payment alternative method
    Workstation five Koryon | julio 06, 2021


    in our country, we can not use paypal as a payment method. We want to buy through autocad store with another payment method. How can we proceed the ordering?



  • Multiple users possible?
    Luke van Sonsbeek | febrero 11, 2021

    With our company we are thinking about purchasing this tool. Can we download this catalog etc. once and then use it on all computers?

    Tamás Halász (Editor) | febrero 12, 2021

    If you are using a shared content folder, that can be seen by all of your users, then once you install my app all users will see the new scripts & catalogs.

  • Dynamic Routing?
    Casey O'Connor | enero 11, 2021

    Can the straight tray sections be routed similar to pipe - run length to required end point and stop? or are the straight tray blocks constrained by catalog dimensions?

    Tamás Halász (Editor) | enero 12, 2021

    Hello Casey, You just need to add "Custom" to the component designation in Spec Editor to the straight segments (sleeves). Link here: This way they will be editable in the 3D model. You will be able to change their length for example in the properties window. It is not at the same level as the pipe-routing (because the "+" icon and the end-grips are only working for pipes). But you are not limited to the catalog-length.

  • Hello, Are you considering include or develop other app for wire-mesh cable tray
    rafael silva | junio 22, 2020 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    Like this h">ttps://

    This type is recently used too in industrial projects

    Tamás Halász (Editor) | enero 12, 2021

    Hello Rafael, sorry for the very late reply. Modelling a wire-mesh tray and placing them multiple times into the model is not a good idea. It would eat up all the computing power. I would recommend to simulate them with a plate-type tray. And that can be done with this app.

  • How can I get the goods after I pay?
    liang zhou | febrero 26, 2020

    How to install it?

    Tamás Halász (Editor) | febrero 26, 2020

    Dear Liang Zhou, Just sign in to the Autodesk App Store. Then using your account you can pay via paypal. After this if you are still signed in you can download the app. Installation is just a simple running of an exe-file. Then running the PLANTREGISTERCUSTOMSCRIPTS command in Plant3D. That is all. Regards, Tamas

    liang zhou | febrero 27, 2020

    I am glad to hear from you. I still have some doubts. Is there any time limit and device limit for the use of this plug-in?

    Tamás Halász (Editor) | febrero 27, 2020

    No time limit. It is a perpetual license.

    liang zhou | marzo 04, 2020

    Is it suitable for various versions of AutoCAD Plant 3D ?

  • Great Add on for Cable-trays
    Blesson Varghese | febrero 05, 2020

    The app is very easy to use and create endless type of tray / ladder as required. The YouTube vedios are very supportive to start from the basic, and appreciate the fast response from Tamás.

    Highly Recommended app for Plant 3D cable trays.

  • Great Addon, Its speads our design.
    Nick Antonov | marzo 13, 2019 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    Thanks for the great app, and fast communication/Support.

    Our Designer was looking for tweak to speed up his cable rack populating on the 3D model.

    The app is great bridge between Autocad and Plant3D adding capabilities for cable racking. ading intelegence to the design, and alowing us to customise the specifications as per our design criteria.

    Thanks :-)

    Tamás Halász (Editor) | marzo 13, 2019

    Thanks Nick!

  • Nice Tool / Easy of Use
    Norman Haley | marzo 12, 2019

    The tool is a snap to install and use.  Creating additional Catalog items / specs specific to vendor catalogs is easy as well.  Responses to questions I had were complete and timely.

    Tamás Halász (Editor) | marzo 13, 2019

    Thanks Norman! I am sad that it is only 4 stars! :) If you feel something missing from the app, let me know.

  • Highly recommended
    Tony Kuharski | marzo 12, 2019 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    My team and I are very happy with this app. No more modeling ugly blocks for cable trays! It is very straight-forward. Fits seemlessly into the existing catalog interface. Everything works the way you think it should.

    Tamás Halász (Editor) | marzo 13, 2019

    Thanks Tony!

  • Very useful catalogue

  • Great spec!
    Thomas Waernes Moen | noviembre 14, 2018 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    Very useful for adding cable trays for our 3D model. Easy to change sizes, both lenth and width. Just use the faq page with very good explanation for how to do everything. Very much recomended!

  • Great Addition To AutoCAD Plant 3D
    Jasvinder Singh | septiembre 26, 2018 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    A great plug in for AutoCAD Plant 3D.

    I must point out the support from Tamas in terms of technical queries and troubleshooting is exceptionally good and prompt.

  • Finally something super useful
    Dejan Cvetanovic | julio 26, 2018 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    Application is very intuitive and the customization is easy as long as you know what you want. Finally electrical designers can utilize Autodesk software the way they suppose to be used. I am still new to Plant 3D and learning, but right now working on having custom specs for diferent manufacturers. All in all this is a good buy and the most usefull add-on i the whole Autodesk store.

    Tamás Halász (Editor) | agosto 03, 2018

    Thanks Dejan!

  • Great app
    Cristian Rada Rada | abril 18, 2018 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    Great app. I used to draw cable trays with standard AutoCAD blocks. This app saves you a lot of time.

  • Great app
    ronaldo magno brito | marzo 26, 2018 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    The application is easy to install and use, we were able to quickly use it in a project.

    One of the great vantagenes is working with the other specialties in the same interface as Plant 3D, without needing to use Revit.

    Tamas has taken care of us quickly in technical support.

  • Well worth it
    Mark Sanchez | marzo 12, 2018

    A lot of power has been packed into this small application. We are finding that it meets all of our requirements. It is extensible and the author has been responsive when we have had questions.

You can customize everything too. I can recommend it for everyone who works with Plant 3D and Needs to use cabletrays.

  • One of the best additions to Plant 3D
    Richard Perrett | marzo 01, 2017 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    Cable tray has long been an issue with Plant 3D but the clever way this has been setup to behave similar to pipes will greatly improve our productivity. Support is amazing. I queried about MTO for tray lengths and within 1 day Tamas had provided a Youtube solution. Highly recommend it.

    Tamás Halász (Editor) | marzo 20, 2017

    Thanks Richard!

    Thanks Shane!

  • Works as you expect
    Hasan Kabbara | enero 17, 2017 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    The app is very easy to use, almost plug and play. The level of customization available to meet local products is very good. The app is very easy to use and adds a much needed electrical aspect to all P3D models. I had an issue and the technical support was prompt and on point.

    Tamás Halász (Editor) | enero 18, 2017

    Many thanks Hasan!

  • Very useful catalogue entities
    Christian Wincziers | enero 16, 2017 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    For a humble contribution you get handy and easy working cable tray entities to place in Plant 3D. And for later learning about python scripts you get the source code of these scripts, a wonderful help.

    Tamás Halász (Editor) | enero 17, 2017

    Thanks Christian!
