Copy & pasting pipe components with existing soil Id's are not updated with new Soil Id names

Open PipeSoil.apc Notice the Soil id currently in the model. Select all of the model. Paste to any location after pasting, notice the number of Soil Id's has doubled. Recommend when coping / pasting pipe node points with existing Soil Id's that th...

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...

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...

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...

Combination Reorganization

In the screenshot in the attached link, for example, i would like to move the highlighted combinations between LC130 and LC131. Does this make sense? As far as I know, the only way to do this is to duplicate LC131 to LC148 and then delete them. Li...
