AutoPIPE has powerful features to move / stretch piping and components. Items may be moved individually or as a selected group. In AutoPIPE groups of components can be ranges of adjacent points or selection of individual items not adjacent to one another, see examples below:
In general there are 3 methods of moving / stretching node points and components -
1. Modify Run dialog
2 Modify Point Input grid
2. AutoPIPE's Move / Stretch command
Each method has some advantages over the other. The most notable being when making modification to the run dialog, segment direction and order will be considered. However they are not considered when using the Move / Stretch command.
From AutoPIPE help:
The Home > Operations > Move/Stretch command enables the user to modify the coordinates of a range of points by changing the offsets of the selected points in the X, Y and Z directions.
Modify the X, Y and Z offsets as appropriate, then press OK to apply the changes. If a branch or continuation point is moved, the alignments of all segments containing the point will be adjusted automatically.
Let us consider a few scenarios that one may encounter when modeling:
