Flexible Joint Step Function Stiffness

Looking for an update to flex coupling input box to better model flexible coupling behavior. Flexible joint additional inputs (see attached) 1) Max angle of deflection for flex joint 2) Two stiffness inputs for bending stiffness. Stiffness changes...

Reference point - nonsymmetric allowable

Reference point is great tool to verify connector capacity. Currently only symmetric allowable values could be used. Many times connectors allowable loads are nonsymmetric ex. range of values -80 to 0kN or -150 to 350kNm. See attached image. It wo...

Get rid of annoying windows beep sound

This is a really annoying sound. The UI shall provide a feature to disable the annoying beep sound. The attached wiki link proposes to disable Windows Sounds, but this disables all other Windows Sounds that serve a purpose outside of Autopipe. A s...

When exporting a model, the user should have the ability to select which nodes are exported based on the type of element it represents.

When creating stress isometric drawings, my team typically exports a .dxf file of the AutoPIPE Model. We are only concerned with nodes that represent support locations, however, there is no option to export only support nodes. Having this option a...

Increase tag length or remove the restriction altogether (like Caesar II)

The current max length of tags is 36 characters. Tag is meanwhile just about the only play where we can save some element-specific information. For example in the case of a Support I would like to save AT LEAST the following:1) The designation of ...

Add API 661 allowables to rotating equipment

Provide user ability to insert cooler nozzle allowables per API 661. This would help with cooler orientation and no longer require user to look up allowable values each time. Provide a multiplier allowable (i.e. 2x 3x API limits)

Non-nuclear Fatigue Analysis

I am planning to include non-nuclear fatigue in a future release. We already support ASME III NB method for nuclear and want to provide a general approach to be used with other design codes. I am looking for interest in the idea and any suggestion...

Support Detail Fig # and Allowable Support Load Ratings

Ensuring support info (gaps, friction, stiffness) is correct and reviewing support results are some of the more time consuming tasks. It would be very handy to be able to set up a library of support detail figure numbers with allowable load ratings.

Reference Loads - Results Database

Currently, AutoPIPE does not have the option to export reference loads to a .mdb file. I want to be able to easily compare the Reference Loads to their allowable. This is most handy when you have radial nozzles. Please include the allowable loads ...

Angle measurement

It is important to know not only the distance between the two points but also the angle of the pipe with respect to the coordinate axes during creating and modifying a model. I would like you to add another item to the Tools menu called Angle Meas...
