Re: Plant 3d - Pipe Stress Analysis

It is good news for all Autocad Plant3d users. Please see the attached images, a complex model PCF was taken and brought to Rohr-2 model, it converts and accepted that complete model.


Rohr2 software has got better compatability with Autocad Plant3d PCF.

Caesar II works really well.  I have been working with Bentley and they have just fixed their PCF translator and it works fine now.  There will likely be mapping issues with either product in regards to materials, but that is a very easy fix once it gets to Caesar II or Autopipe.  For getting the routing over to analysis, either product would decently now.  I personally like Caesar II better because you can import multiple pcf's into an analysis model at one time.  Autopipe does one at a time, but both come in well on coordinates.

I still have a lot of issues when importing my Plant 3D model into AutoPIPE. Especially for T's and olets, it defaults these to an anchor point. Has anybody else had these issues and if so were you able to fix these? I just recently found out about the mapping of the .pcfs and am currently not an expert on that matter. Thanks for any help.
