Python Cable Tray
Digitally signed app
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).

프로그램 설치하는 과정에서 오류가 생겨 나는 여러 차례 담당자에서 메일을 보내고 질문을 했습니다. 많은 질문을 보낼때마다 친절하고 자세하게 바로바로 대응을 해주어 나는 문제해결을 할 수 있었어요. 고객응대 너무나도 칭찬합니다. 나는 다음에도 당신의 프로그램을 사용할거예요.
An error occurred in the process of installing the program, so I sent several emails from the person in charge and asked questions. Every time I sent a lot of questions, he responded kindly and in detail, so I was able to solve the problem. Customer service is very commendable. I will use your program again next time.
I would give it 6 stars if I could! Very easy to use! Outstanding customer service when or if you have a problem!
Hello. Is ot possible to install in two computers of my own? I have my office pc and my laptop, both for my self. I mean if i buy a license, to use in one pc one time, and later in the other. I have seen your reviews and i would like to test your libraries and after to recomend to our company. Thanks very much.
The routing works well. It is best to put corners in and then fill in the straights.
There is good support as well when I needed assistance as I was putting in the local cable racking sizes.
Hi, great product, can be installed on more than one laptops?
In theory it is a single licence.
Excellent addition to Plant 3D, and also we whant you to know that we are very pleased with the quality of service you provide. We sincerely appreciate you resposiveness. We will recomend your company. Thank you very much.
Very interested in this product.
Is it possible to create bent type tray?
Bends are available. Bends, tees, wyes, crosses, reducers are all there.
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
Hello! No, live internet connection is NOT necessary.
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?
Hi, Just write me directly via email, and I can prepare a proforma invoice for you, based on that you can wire-transfer as well.
With our company we are thinking about purchasing this tool. Can we download this catalog etc. once and then use it on all computers?
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.
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?
Hello Casey, You just need to add "Custom" to the component designation in Spec Editor to the straight segments (sleeves). Link here: https://youtu.be/9VbcTKfe9R0?t=570 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.

This type is recently used too in industrial projects
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 to install it?
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
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?
No time limit. It is a perpetual license.
Is it suitable for various versions of AutoCAD Plant 3D ?
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.
Extremely useful!!! Increased productivity immensely. Solved the problem of the main things lacking w/ Plant3D IMO
Appreciate effort put in making this app. And Kudos to Tamas for quick support! Good job!
works great and very easy to use. Thanks
I highly recommend this app, it has everything you need for making cabletrays/ladders in an easy manner. Easy to use and customize. Support is also very good, always quick reply and helpful answers.
Thank you Lars!
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.
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.
Thanks Norman! I am sad that it is only 4 stars! :) If you feel something missing from the app, let me know.
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.
This app is very easy to use! When you have a problem the support is very quick with reply's and help
Definitely 5 stars!
This catalog do have it all and it is easy to use and easy to modify sizes.
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!
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.
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.
Great app. I used to draw cable trays with standard AutoCAD blocks. This app saves you a lot of time.
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.
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.
Good Job Tamaz, thinga that would be nice to see, flat and peaked tray cover, internal tray dividers to allow instrument and power cables in one tray ...
Hello Jan! Covers and dividers are there from now on, yes. :) Tamas
The tool works very well, for my starting Problems there were a lot of Videos and examples. Additional you can write to the Support and you will get an qualify answer very soon! You can customize everything too. I can recommend it for everyone who works with Plant 3D and Needs to use cabletrays.
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.
How to link with Auto CAD after installaion, can anyone guide how to install so that it work
Got the catalogue and Scripts within 3 minutes of making the small donation and had it installed and running within 5 minutes! Great add-on Catalogue!!! Got the new upgrade within the next day!! Easily created new sizes in catalogue editor. Extremely usefull!
The cable tray provided by this app is a great addition to Plant. The installer is easy to use, the YouTube links provided by the dev help walk you through any needed steps, and Tamas provides excellent support. I highly recommend this add-on to anybody looking to add cable tray to their Plant 3D model.
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.
Many thanks Hasan!
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.
Noi abbiamo acquistato l'app per il disegno della canale portacavi, riuscendo a configurare le dimensioni standard da noi utilizzate. I'App funziona bene e noi riusciamo agevolmente a completare i notri progetti con il disegno delle canalizzazioni portacavi Complimenti
