Complex Piping Systems Often Create Major Design Bottlenecks
The Piping module in Creo allows users to accurately model piping installations. However, the time to create pipelines, linestocks, and fittings in the Piping module is substantial and the margin for error across an organization is very high. Whether line stocks are undefined or fittings are misaligned, piping can present a number of challenges to a team in their design process.
To help standardize this process, PTC offers a free extension called Spec-Driven Piping. Spec-Driven Piping lets teams model with pre-defined schematic data to automatically create an entire system of pipes. Despite the significant benefits, most organizations fail to take advantage of Spec-Driven Piping because of the complexity associated with their deployment and data management.
How We Help:
The CadActive Platform enabled teams to take advantage of a data-driven processes to efficiently design piping. You can build libraries, use schematic data, and enforce standards so your engineering team is always connected. This takes the tedious steps out of the initial creation of your piping models so that you can speed up you design process.
With CadActive Piping, you can define spec-drive piping configurations and leverage schematic data to automatically route piping within designs.
- Create rigid or flexible hose geometry with point-and-click automatic routing that ensure optimized designs, real-time collision avoidance, and more
- Works seamlessly with CadActive’s spec-driven piping solutions, allowing engineers to pick from specs defined in Spec-Driven Piping configuration – no more downstream manufacturing headaches from wrong clicks
