Piping in Inventor - All designers of pipe runs of the world - unit !!!!

Status: New Idea

If you want to make design with various type of pipes I need that functions :


1. welding pipes - to have possibility to use elbows - not only 90, 45°but 15, 30°-  generally all types of angle

2. to have possibility to use style pipes with insulations - various types of material, thickness

3. to simplify  creation of piping runs, copying them for another purpose

4. to create automatically isometric design of piping runs

5. to have possibility to use supporting elements, fastening, support of physics for designing of fastening elements

6. to use  I-logic for piping

Add P&ID's in there with your ISO's and I'd be just THRILLED!

Correct T&P errors in Content Center Library. (Incomplete or inaccurate descriptions, reducers for example)

AutoDrop - determine the correct size of fitting instead of requiring designer to remember size, schedule, etc.

In real life you just cut any elbow to the angle you need.

There should also be a "relax rule" button - e.g. If you have a 25 m long welded pipe run and there is f.ex. a 20 mm difference in height between start and end you have a problem in inventor. In real life you do not.
