HDPE

Hi,

I am looking for HDPE pipeline specs and catalogues. Does anyone know if there are any existing ones or do I need to create them from scratch?

most likely create them from scratch.. that is what I have to do aswell.

maybe I just can't find it.

 

There is nothing in there that is useable for HDPE in Canada.

I'm looking for a good HDPE pipe catalogue as well. Are there any catalogues that I can just modify the parameters to suit what I need instead of having to make all the parts over again individually?

I've been looking for a while.  I gave up and I am going to build one... like I had to do for sch 40 pvc and pvcu.

 

spears has one, but I still had to make a bunch of fittings since it is woefully incomplete.

Hi,

 

You can create your own catalog's at ease with our "New Catalog Builder" in Plant 3D 2013.

 

Alternatively if you want to request a new content pack please check the below link .

Do mention the specific standard/manufacturer you are looking for, if any.

I still find it easier to model each fitting myself.  Each time I have attempted to use the catalog builder it has failed.

after much more trial and error I have it working much better.

Hi John,

 

Glad to hear that.

As you mentioned once you explore it, this tool is certainly handy.
