Can any body suggest how can we get/download the PEX services for carrying out works so that we can create distribution systems with the PEX systems in AutoCAD Fabrication CAD MEP, it will be of a great help.

Hi bireshwar.mallick

 

I have looked over the parts in this arnge and there are many fundamental errors which will cause problems when drawing.

 

1. there is no flex tube in this service, that part that is set up as tube is in fact a subassembly and will not work with this range.

2. No spec applied

3. No insulation material set, should this be set?

4. The connectors of the male fittings which appear to couple pipe together, also the main connector for fittings is not configured correctly so will not allow connection to tube.

 

These are only a few of the issues i have seen in the 10 minutes i have spent reviewing the service. I could quickly fix some of these to allow you to draw something but even this will be a half baked effort. I would like to pass this to our content development team to thoroughly comb through these parts and database conponents and supply a decent set of content. I think it will be a while before this will be a useable range.

 

Regards

Uponor's website has a downloadable *.iez service file.  It is located under the BIM download, hard to find but worth the search.

Hi MTBLetsos

 

Is Uponor the main manufacturer of PEX piping?

 

Also do you have a specific link to their .iez, i have had a look on the website but was unable to locate it. Would make sense to add their item data into the ootb configuration.

No Uponor is just one of the companies that manufacture PEX.

Hi MTBLestos,

Thanks a for proving the Uponor PEX service. There are two issues that we have found and the same are stated underneath

 

Baisc Propex tubing or flex pipe not seen in the propex systems (snap attached)

We are not able to see the long run service to draw basic PEX pipe only a pex tubing service is present in the Uponor AquaPEX tubing. We need to draw basic PEX pipes with all the Uponor system fittings, Manifolds,etc...

 

When we are drawing between a/the fitting(s) to fitting(s) then errors are shown

Snap attached for illustration purpose.
