Brian, bring us up to speed on pressure pipes. The last I remember was that it could be similar leaving home with a six shooter and realizing when the fight started you brought your pea-shooter.
In 2013 there were some distinct limitations to the pressure networks. In 2014, a lot of those have been removed. In particular: In 2013 you couldn't data reference a pressure network, you couldn't sample pressure networks for display in cross sections, and you couldn't apply pay items to the parts. All of this you can now do in 2014.
And then there's the "compass".
Man, this thing is AWESOME! for demos
I've tried, I just can't like this thing. Yeah, if your pipes have EXACTLY a 45d bend then it works fine but how often does that happen. I think a lot of the issue I had was with the compass not working the way I expected it to. So, I use it but not the way it's demo'd. Layout the pipe with the compass to get it close then adjust the pipe, then hit the plus to add the next piece of the pipe. If you do it that way, it's not too bad.
Thanks for the time and effort there Brian. I haven't touched these either. With DS's I can roll them out.
