Full-Process Automated Cabling Creation
Standard piping processes involve initially creating a P&ID, a 2D piping and instrumentation diagram, which details the pipes, fittings, and equipment to be used. From there, the P&ID is leveraged to create 3D models of the entire piping system. To date, much of this 2D->3D work is done manually with no true link between the drawings. However, there exists a powerful tool that helps translate the 2D P&ID in Creo Schematics to a 3D model in Creo Parametric called Schematic-Driven Piping.

Benefits of Spec-Driven Piping
If you are modeling pipes in Creo Parametric, you should be using Spec-Driven Piping. This video demonstrates how this free extension within Creo’s Piping module can streamline your design efforts by helping you generate piping models at least 400% faster (seriously!) and reducing iterations by eliminating errors.
RsysConfig: Spec-Driven Piping Made Easy
Despite the significant benefits, most organizations fail to take advantage of Spec-Driven Piping because of the complexity associated with its deployment and data management. This video introduces RsysConfig – a new web-based interface by CadActive that allows users to create and define their Spec-Driven Piping configuration. Also, see how quick and easy it is to migrate your existing spec-driven data from Creo 2 or 3 to the new file formats in Creo 4!

This video provides an overview of the benefits of Spec-Driven Piping and how RsysConfig can put the power of Spec-Driven Piping into your team’s hands.
Full Process Automation Example
This video is a comprehensive demo that highlights the benefits of Standardize (Publish and Copy Geometry automation) along with Automate (loads, assembles, and designates connectors in bulk). The video concludes with CadActive Piping (automatic routing of Piping and Semi-Rigid Cabling) using an input file from a schematic – currently a PTC Neutral Wire List (“.nwf”) file, but this can be changed to fit your processes.
