In the load combination options, users can custom define loads. The combination ordering is specific to the entries - the rows at the bottom can use previous combinations above, but not v/v. AutoPIPE generates an error if a load case tries to refe...
AutoPIPE error 1304731 indicates that there are improper combinations of the modal solutions for seismic anchor motions and seismic response spectra. The "fix" to the error report is a warning to the end-user; however, there is no work around. Oth...
Users can decide whether pressure extension should be considered in static analysis sets, but this is not an option for hydrotest cases. The user is required to consider it with no option to unselect "Pressure Extension" in the "Analysis Sets" int...

ASME released ASME NM.1 for thermoplastic piping systems. It is handy for stress analysis of plastic pipes (PVC, CPVC, HDPE. PE, ...) compared to ASME B31.3. It will be beneficial if Autopipe includes this code as an option for analysis.
Add a toggle button in segments grid to apply a transparency visual plot
Working with existing or future segments in large systems, it would be great to have a option to change their segments plot (like adding transparency). Something similar to older software like Triflex (see attached image).
Defining Concentrated force to the local axis of element
The inability to specify the concentrated force for the local element in Autopipe leads to numerous challenges when defining the slug force on a pipeline that is misaligned with the axis. In contrast to CAESAR, Autopipe lacks the capability to rot...
Flange Analysis - report Axial force and Bending moment values
Currently the Flange Analysis output report does not print the Axial force and Bending moment input values used in the calculations. Suggest output report subsection " 1.5 PRESSURE & TEMPERATURE LOADS:" be renamed to "1.5 Load" and expanded to...
