Are there any AutoPIPE manuals available that can be sent to me?
In order to help the environment, Bentley no longer produces printed / digital application manuals. All the data that would have been in these manuals are now available in the application’s electronic Help utility. This allows the user to quickly search based on key words or navigate through a table of contents listing to find information faster than flipping through multiple volumes of books. One could open individual sections of the AutoPIPE Help utility in the program and print hard copies as required.
AutoPIPE's help covers many topics:
In addition, more technical literature is available in the various locations both inside and outside of the program. For new users strongly suggest to review WIKI here for information specifically dedicated towards people that are new to using AutoPIPE. Furthermore, if you attend an official Bentley Institute Training class, the trainer provides additional in depth training manuals based on the topics covered in class that are not available by any other means.
Remember, no matter how long you have been using the application (1 hour - xx years), all level of AutoPIPE users will learn new information, tips, tricks, etc.. from attending any training class. Plus, the added bonus of having a live instructor to answer any questions about the application while in class. Know that the CAE development team is constantly updating / improving the program, taking training classes is one of the best ways of staying current with the application. Otherwise, one could spend many frustrating hours trying to accomplish a goal that would only taken a few moments, had you only known that a new added feature existed to help. (example: renumber and reordering segments, or manually creating an isometric drawing when there is a specific feature to do so).
