Hello!

 

Are there anywhere Tubing & Piping (Routed Systems) libraries, like included into basic Inventor solution?

I need parametric library with defined routed system properties to create mine own library.

It's not deal to get apiece components from online component labraries, and publish them from Inventor.

 

Required next manufacturers:

  • Bray
  • Camozzi
  • EA
  • Erico
  • GF
  • Grafilit
  • Grundfos
  • Jesco
  • KVADO
  • Norma
  • PROTEC
  • Tecval
  • Tekleen
  • Victaulic
  • Walraven
  • Wika
  • etc.

Kind regardsd!

The Tube & Pipe styles included in Inventor out of the box, are very generic styles.  There are several to choose from that can be copied and modified as needed.  but it looks like you are looking for the parts libraries (Content Center) for specific manufacturer's parts?  The parts libraries are also generic to the various international standards.  I'm not aware of any that can be downloaded that are more specific.

I'm afraid your best bet is going to be to create them, as iparts, from a manufacturer's catalog, and then publish them to the Content Center.  I assume you have checked these websites?  Most piping and valve producers, unfortunately, do not privide CAD files of thier products.

That companies provides CAD files, but basically in STEP. Do you know how to create ipart from several files without parametric modeling?

One ipart from multiple step models?  I do not believe that can be done.  You could import each one and save as individual parts, then publish them... but your library would likely be way too large to be useful.

Right. At first I'm importing them, using Inventor scheduler.
I've decided to store them into Vault library folder.

As for me it's more acceptable decision at now.
