Parametric Cable Tray Plugin

Parametric Cable Tray Plugin

Sistema operativo:


In industry, cable trays are used for routing the bulk of power, control, and communication cables, ensuring they are neat and organized. Often there arises the need to simulate cable tray route in 3D model space before its installation in the field; to visualize the layout, verify for system clashes/overlaps, and produce isometric drawings. Sadly, most software available for this task are too expensive. This App is your answer to that very problem.


Following are the outline features of this app:

  • Start designing complex cable tray routing with ease in a user-friendly environment,
  • Smooth, self-guided installation and uninstallation,
  • Installer identifies the version of Autodesk® AutoCAD® Plant 3D installed on the system and provides options for the user to choose for which the plugin should be installed,,
  • Python-based parametric tray components which you can easily alter in modelspace as your needs,
  • Components' geometry is created as per industrial codes and standards i.e. IEEE-422, IEEE-628, IEC-61537, and NEMA-V1,
  • Multiple customization options for the tray components in modelspace to create virtually any type of industrial geometry,
  • One-click isometric generation,
  • Option to choose from four tray categories (i.e. Ladder, Ventilated, Solid, and Wire Basket) with additional provision to choose a cover,
  • Possibility to design in either Imperial or Metric System of Units,
  • Component catalog contains 16 basic components in each tray style with and without covers. So total of 108 components to choose from,
  • Pre-loaded specification sheets of most used component sizes and flexibility to modify as per project needs,
  • User manual with detailed instructions,
  • Low cost, rich content, and user-friendly


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

    I have been doing the cable tray routing for my works with much pain. Mostly manually by drawing a 3D object everytime. This app does all the work for me and all I need is to place the desired component, needed parameters and vola job done. Weeks of labor cut down in just minutes. Customer feedback is really good, I received all the help and passed along a few suggestions for future upgrades :)

    Purchased this but it will not install.  Stops at version select screen and will not allow you to select Plant version.

    I am really sorry to hear that. I haven't had any complaints from other customers so far about this issue. Seems to be unique with your installation. I have also tested it once again and recorded a video for you. Please take a look. [!Au52JhdcE-FygZxRopq8db2ngSlamg?e=ZI0zFf ] I would like to know what went wrong here. So, if you could please tell me following so I can look into it; 1. Please state your AutoCAD Plant 3D version installed 2. Share the P3D installation location and its content folder location 3. Share HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\\\SOFTWARE\\\\Autodesk registry entry Meanwhile, if it's okay with you then I will send you an email with source files and instruction on how to get it going. Kindly let me know and I will send you the email right away.
