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...
Currently, the interface between Autopipe and Openplant is disconnected. Users have to manually export piping models to Autopipe, and perform analysis. If changes need to happen in one model, the other model isnt't updated dynamically. Further, th...
Insert 2 node points when a flange is inserted, to allow the user to set the BW SIF
By default, when you insert a WN or Lap Joint flange in Autopipe, it does not account for SIF at the BW joint. User has to enter an additional node point at a flange length and define a Joint Type with a defined offset. This could be automated.

Users of a company in Japan name PIPE ID under specific rule in P&ID and 3D-CAD while AutoPIPE has a limitation for PIPE ID's character length as 8 words. So they convert the PIPE ID for AutoPIPE limitation, but there is a possibility that it ...

Increase tag length or remove the restriction altogether (like Caesar II)
The current max length of tags is 36 characters. Tag is meanwhile just about the only play where we can save some element-specific information. For example in the case of a Support I would like to save AT LEAST the following:1) The designation of ...
In my opinion modeling of soils in AutoPIPE takes to much time and could/should be simplified. For selected part of the model, including simultanously vertical, horizontal or inclined segments, there are four geometrical methods to define a terrai...
Why there is no option what components to show after clicking the show component dialog box
Hello,When you work with a model that consiously you hide different kind of components in it, and then you want to show only one kind of hidden components for example the guide supports, it turns out that such a function does not exist in Autopipe...

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 import of large coordinates from CAD systems
Currently AutoPIPE have an option to shift the coordinates when importing PCF files with large coordinates (more than 6 digits). Also if this option is not selected, the piping import will fail as the pipe lengths would be messed up. I understand ...
