Non-metallic and metallic pipe in one Autopipe file

Is it possible to combine a plastic (PVC) pipe and a metallic pipe in one Autopipe file? Any workaround if it is not?

  • Hi Mike,

    I have been searching for a tutorial or any literature regarding a combined metallic and plastic pipe in one Autopipe file but could not find any. I would appreciate it if you could point me to the right direction. A hyperlink or perhaps a pdf file would be awesome.

    Thank you.

  • Greetings, 

    Please see WIKI here. Be sure to look at the notes on this page. This page has a few tutorials about modeling non-metallic pipe. 

    The modeling technique depends on what method of model non-metallic piping you used. Essentially model metallic pipe with metallic pipe properties and then model non-metallic pipe with non-metallic pipe properties.
