One Button Z Up Conversion

When exporting a file to a DGN, one can easily click a button to transpose the model from Y up to Z up. It would be very handy if this could be done in the AutoPIPE model itself. Then one could simply click a button to change a file from Y up to Z...

Increase maximum number of static earthquake load cases.

When using nonlinear analysis earthquake loads cannot be scaled. If additional analysis sets are required with different earthquake accelerations for design purposes, it is severely limiting to have only 30 E cases. There are 100 analysis sets, it...

A single Autopipe file

Similar to APC files, it would be much more convenient if Autopipe packaged all essential sub files during an analysis project and created a single file by default. It would ensure that the user does not make a mistake and stores the wrong files. ...

Allow gap supports with response spectra analysis

Response spectrum analysis is a static equivalent linear analysis to a dynamic earthquake event. AutoPIPE allows the use of V-Stops with gaps for static analysis. The condition of the gap closure and subsequent support loading is determined by eva...

Add Cut-shorts to View Settings/Scale Factors

Users cannot change the size of cut-short symbol. The cut-short symbol is drawn proportional to the pipe OD while in single line mode. It sometimes looks too big or too small.

Report Sign-Max for Support and Restraint in Results

It would be very handy for AutoPIPE to report the maximum loading for all load cases for reporting to the structural engineer or equipment manufacturers.

Fix the Load Sequencing for Snow Load

The help file states the following for snow load analysis: Limitation Currently, AutoPIPE only considers snow loading as linear analysis. Load sequencing does not apply to snow loads and such results should not be considered. For analysis sets tha...

Total Length of Pipe

Once pipe properties are assigned to a run, the total length of the run with that property is calculated. For example I have 3 runs, a 2ft run, 4 ft run and 2 ft run. I assigned the property of A335P11 to the 2ft runs and SS36 to the 4ft run. Auto...
