Plumbing and piping systems

Please make the plumbing system work like the piping system. As mentioned elsewhere in this group, it makes no sense to coordinate piping systems and not plumbing three dimensionally. Also, the plumbing system seems to lack the ease of use and fittings that go along with the piping. It does mean that 1-line piping needs to break for crossings without working around the issue that they don't now. There should also be an option that the fittings all look the same in 1-line (or schematic if you prefer) regardless of size and not be based on the actual size of the part. Valves should also have an option to be placed on the same layer as the pipe. Note that the fitting size and valve layering were available in S8, so it is disappointing to find them missing in BS3.
Thanks,
Steve

ABS 2004 with the extension 1 includes plumbing DWV
fittings and piping in both US metric and imperial.

 

I hope this helps!

This may sound like a dumn question, but what does
DWV stand for?

In the event of producing plumbing drawings using the 3d piping module. What
template would I go about using for this type of design? I have in the past
used the plumbing template and went ahead and added in the different pipes
used per sanitary and domestic water etc. Your response is greatly
appreciated.
