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...
Add a toggle between X/Y/Z and axial/shear/bending/torsion for forces and moments in the reference loads dialog. Many allowables for connections are given in terms of total shear load or bending moment. It is not possible to use the current refere...
AS of AutoPIPE 23.00.00.230, the maximum number of unique response spectrums that can be analyzed is 200 [(S1..S10)x 20 support groups per SAM case]. Suggest to Increase the number of SAM and/or Support Groups in order to allow 200+ unique respons...

Model new piping geometry based on newly established local coordinate system instead of Global coordinate system
Use Case: If The entire model is using plant coordinates thus causing the entire system to be off AutoPIPE's global axis. Then, if the user needs to add new piping geometry it is very difficult to model in AutoPIPE using global coordinates. Users ...

AccuDraw functionality to be able to select, place and move components
This will be a huge improvement with the ability to interact with Autopipe. Currently, users have to use a coordinate system, and map out changes to the Autopipe Mode. A feature similar to Accudraw in Microstation would significantly improve the a...
During the development of pipe design, one may need to iteratively. make small changes, and check the impact on stress, Forces, Restraint forces, etc. It would save a lot of time if there was an indicator on the default main UI that states the hig...
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...
Add color-coded presentation of P&ID line numbers assigned to AutoPIPE model segments
This kind of presentation allows for model data analysis in order to see pipes according to their P&ID line numbers. It is VERY needed as allows to verify which segments represent which lines. Also may by used to represent equipment, equipment...
