CADPIPE Industrial is driven by user-definable specifications, allowing you to modify
the specs provided by CADPIPE or to build your own for each project. When a material
specification is selected, the program finds the information defined in the spec
and selects the appropriate material, connection, schedule, fittings and valves as
you draw, automatically changing specifications as the pipe size changes.
Automatic Section Views/Spooling
Automatically extract fabrication drawings from your model. A single 3D model can
be used to create all scaled plans, sections, elevations, and details with ease.
Automatic Isometric Fabrication Drawings
From your 3D model you can automatically create isometrics, label them, and place
a detailed bill of materials report on the drawing. To generate even more detailed
ISO drawings, create a Universal Data Exchange (UDE) file of your model and use it
to automatically create an isometric in the CADPIPE ISO program.
Collision Warning & Correction
CADPIPE has two collision checking features which examine any area or the entire
model for error free designs. Interactive Collision Checking looks for interference
with 3D objects as the pipe system is being drawn.
Batch Collision Checking examines your model at the end of the drawing session.
Generate Materials Reports
CADPIPE can automatically generate a complete bill of materials report for one drawing
or a global report across a number of drawings. A typical BOM report includes the
material specification, schedule, rating, end types, line number, line designation,
specification, and many other parameters. You can customize the descriptions or user
codes through the specification generator. You can view the complete BOM on your
screen, send it to a printer, export it to an SDF file, a comma delimited ASCII file
or directly to Microsoft Access for customized sorting of the database information.
The ASCII file can be imported into most commercially available databases.
Automatic Pipe Placement
The Automatic Routing Line feature enables you to lay out runs and pipe them instantly.
Select any AutoCAD line and it becomes an intelligent CADPIPE routing line, enabling
you to automatically place elbows, fittings and pipe.
The Auto-Route feature automatically places runs of pipe horizontally and vertically,
with a turn or bend in the pipe.
CADPIPE allows you to annotate your drawing. Simply query CADPIPE's intelligent objects
(pipe, fittings, etc), select the appropriate annotation button and drop the annotation
text onto the sheet automatically.
CADPIPE's equipment generator allows you to instantly generate
3D pumps, vessels, and heat exchangers to your own specifications.
Simply select the equipment type and enter the dimensions to quickly
