Profile and Pipe Structure Modeling

 

 

Profiles

More accurate similarity analysis of the profiles

Now the program is able to detect similar profiles more accurately, so similar profiles will now have the same part number. (Vertex-ID: MEC-5896)

  • Previously, the program could not "spin" a profile to another position and then inspect the profiles for similarity.

Total weights and lengths are included in the cutting list exported to Excel

Now, the cutting list to Excel has also the aggregate weights and aggregate lengths. (Vertex-ID: MEC-8057)

Trim profiles regarding to the selected place

When you trim profiles (Assembly > Tools >) to face, part, point or miter cut, you can point their sides of the intersection that remain. (Vertex-ID: PLANT-2348)


Previously the profile was trimmed to the intersection from a location of it's cross-section. Thus the location of the cross-section was required to move before trimming at times.

 


 

You can define a gap (offset) when trimming profiles

When trimming profiles to a surface or a part, you can set a gap of specific size for a weld edge. (Vertex-ID: MEC-8169)

           

 

Profile cut or stretch to surface creates also a trim (=reference to plane).

When you stretch or cut a profile by pointing a surface, a permanent trim to that surface is created. So the profile follows the surface if it is relocated.  (Vertex-ID: MEC-7846)

Pipes

Pipeline modelling along an existing sketch line

Pipeline can be modeled using ready sketch lines. The pipeline follows the modifications of the sketch line as well. (Vertex-ID: PLANT-1490)

 

Join pipe-ends

Pipe-ends can be joined by using a special function. Software also asks if the pipe-ends will be joined after removing pipe parts from pipeline.  (Vertex-ID: PLANT-1733, PLANT-1432)
