PostalCAD Plant Layout

The goal of this course is to provide students with tools to design and lay out a Postal facility. The program addresses the specific needs of Postal employees designing and documenting mail-processing plants with the tools available in Autodesk Map 3D 2020 and PostalCAD 2020. The instructor provides real world working examples and methods to professionally design or document a plant layout. Students then explore the material and investigate the new techniques as a group, or at their own pace. This hands-on course will take students through the process of basic plant layout and design by mastering the following application areas.
