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).

Сведения об этой версии

Версия 2.02, 13.06.2022
Version 2.02 - 2022. 06. 08.: 2.02 - Matching pipe OD is set for all sample catalog items, this way Bottom-of-Pipe, Center-of-Pipe and Top-of-Pipe values are relevant for all cable tray items as well - Default value of the sleeve's Component Designation is set inside the SQL database of all sample catalogs, so no need to manually enter "Custom" there - SHFT parameter is added to the straight cable tray script, it can be used to shift the Center of Pipe position if necessary (0 - original old version, -1 - CoP shifted so it is inline with the bottom of the cable tray)

    Colin Maxwell | октября 03, 2022 Проверенная загрузка (Что это такое?)

    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.

    MOONCAKE C | августа 30, 2022

    Hi, great product, can be installed on more than one laptops?


    Tamás Halász (Разработчик) | октября 03, 2022

    In theory it is a single licence.

  • Different Tray Type other than Ladder Type
    Jin Lee | октября 06, 2021

    Very interested in this product.
    Is it possible to create bent type tray?
    Thank you.


    Tamás Halász (Разработчик) | января 04, 2022

    Bends are available. Bends, tees, wyes, crosses, reducers are all there.

  • Database Access Requirements
    Muhammad Shoaib Anjum | сентября 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

    Tamás Halász (Разработчик) | января 04, 2022

    Hello! No, live internet connection is NOT necessary.

  • payment alternative method
    Workstation five Koryon | июля 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?



    Tamás Halász (Разработчик) | января 04, 2022

    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.

  • Multiple users possible?
    Luke van Sonsbeek | февраля 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 (Разработчик) | февраля 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 | января 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 (Разработчик) | января 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 villanueva | июня 22, 2020 Проверенная загрузка (Что это такое?)

    Like this h">ttps://

    This type is recently used too in industrial projects

    Tamás Halász (Разработчик) | января 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 | февраля 26, 2020

    How to install it?

    Tamás Halász (Разработчик) | февраля 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 | февраля 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 (Разработчик) | февраля 27, 2020

    No time limit. It is a perpetual license.

    liang zhou | марта 04, 2020

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

  • Great Add on for Cable-trays
    Blesson Varghese | февраля 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 | марта 13, 2019 Проверенная загрузка (Что это такое?)

    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 (Разработчик) | марта 13, 2019

    Thanks Nick!

  • Nice Tool / Easy of Use
    Norman Haley | марта 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 (Разработчик) | марта 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 | марта 12, 2019 Проверенная загрузка (Что это такое?)

    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 (Разработчик) | марта 13, 2019

    Thanks Tony!

  • Very useful catalogue

    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 | сентября 26, 2018 Проверенная загрузка (Что это такое?)

    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 | июля 26, 2018 Проверенная загрузка (Что это такое?)

    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 (Разработчик) | августа 03, 2018

    Thanks Dejan!

  • Great app
    Cristian Rada Rada | апреля 18, 2018 Проверенная загрузка (Что это такое?)

  • Great app
    ronaldo magno brito | марта 26, 2018 Проверенная загрузка (Что это такое?)

    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 | марта 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 | марта 01, 2017 Проверенная загрузка (Что это такое?)

    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.

  • Works as you expect
    Hasan Kabbara | января 17, 2017 Проверенная загрузка (Что это такое?)

    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 (Разработчик) | января 18, 2017

    Many thanks Hasan!

    Christian Wincziers | января 16, 2017 Проверенная загрузка (Что это такое?)

    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.
