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...

Add label box for flexible joints

It would be helpful if flexible joints could have a label or tag added. This would be similar to how many components in AutoPIPE have the ability to label components, such as supports and anchors.

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...

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 ...
