I have a question regarding 1000m radius bend in Autopipe. I would like to add points on the bend. What is the easiest way as I have to insert points at 6m intervals.
There is no command in AutoPIPE to split/insert a bend with multiple points. However, please see the following options available based on the version of AutoPIPE being used.
AutoPIPE V8i 09.06.xx.xx and higher:
Option #1: All options available in AutoPIPE 9.5 and lower
Option #2: Create the bend in AutoCAD and import file using the new Import AutoCAD file procedure.
Option #3: (Preferred method) Create a ring main using the new Ring Main Wizard, after the ring main has been created, cut/copy/paste/move it to the correct location in the model
AutoPIPE V8i 09.05.xx.xx and Lower:
Option #1: Create a miter bend with as many cuts as desired. Please see the following AutoPIPE help section for details: Help > Contents> Contents Tab> Modeling Approaches> Modeling Approaches> Bend> Miter Bends> Model 2: 3 Cuts - Widely Spaced. Using Excel, calculate all
Option #2: Create the bend in AutoCAD and manually transfer each node point (DX, DY, DZ) coordinates to AutoPIPE as new bends are added.
