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...
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...

Develop an Python API plug-in for importing, building, and editing models using data from 3D CAD packages
Develop an API that allows writing Python scripts to post process Autopipe results data for automated reporting etc. Also, allow plug-in for building and editing models using data from 3D CAD packages. (1018304)
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...
large dimension model have a big problem in velocity, particulary with dinamic, for the very old architecture of the software. Some common ideas: multi core implementation (a must, in my opinion) 64bit use of library for graphic cards a benchmark ...
