Standardizing Spec-Driven Fittings, Part 3

Posted Posted in Creo Routed Systems

This is the final post of a three-part series covering the 13 different fitting codes defined by PTC in Spec-Driven Piping (for the first two posts see here and here, respectively). In this post, we will explore the INLINE_REDUCING,  CORNER_REDUCING, BRANCH_REDUCING, and BRANCH_LET codes. BRANCH_LET PTC defines the typical BRANCH_LET as a weldolet (shown below). Unlike the […]

Standardizing Spec-Driven Fittings, Part 2

Posted Posted in Creo Routed Systems

In our last post, we went over some of the basics of Spec-Driven Piping requirements concerning parameters and went through the INLINE, INLINE_JOINT, ELBOW, CORNER, and NOBREAK fitting codes (see here). In this post, we will explore BRANCH, FLANGE, and GASKET fittings, and cover some of the other nuances of the “END_TYPE” parameter and “end type compatibility”. BRANCH […]

Spec-Driven Piping in Creo Parametric allows users to model piping installations at a much faster rate and more accurately than using the conventional Piping module (for further details, see our earlier blog post Why Spec-Driven Piping?). The main obstacle behind many companies using this free addition to the Piping module is the time and effort required […]

Spec-Driven Piping in Creo Parametric allows users to model piping installations at a much faster and more accurate rate than using the conventional Piping module (for further details, see our earlier blog post Why Spec-Driven Piping?). One of the benefits of Spec-Driven Piping is that the appropriate fittings are selected automatically during insertion based on the specification […]

Changes to Spec-Driven Piping in Creo 4

Posted Posted in Creo Routed Systems

Spec-Driven Piping in Creo Parametric allows users to model piping installations at a much faster and more accurate rate than using the conventional Piping module (for further details, see our earlier blog post Why Spec-Driven Piping?). PTC introduced two changes in Creo Parametric 4.0 that make Spec-Driven Piping easier to implement and maintain compared to prior […]

Why Spec-Driven Piping?

Posted Posted in Creo Routed Systems

In this article, we’re going to cover the Piping module in Creo, a tool that allows users to accurately model complex piping systems. Creo offers two specific design modes when working with the Piping module: Non Spec-Driven Piping and Spec-Driven Piping. While it is possible to model a piping system in either design mode, there […]
