How to make P&ID drawings
Create an equipment checklist
List all equipment items involved in the process you’re drawing out. Include objects like piping, valves, instruments, vessels, heat exchangers, pumps, and more.
Select the process engineering shape library
Select the process engineering shape library to use symbols you’ll need for your P&ID drawing based on your equipment checklist.
Add and connect pipes and equipment
Add symbols to the canvas and connect them accordingly to accurately reflect the process you’re drawing.
Review with collaborators
Share your process with collaborators and walk through it to identify inefficiencies and areas for improvement.
Present and share
When your P&ID is complete, use presentation mode to share with stakeholders. You can also publish your diagram in any popular file type or use free Lucidchart integrations with popular apps.
