A much requested feature has been added to our Revit Apps for piping systems: drawing bendable piping systems. This new feature allows MEP engineers to design flexible piping systems much faster than with native Revit functionality. The MEPcontent Product Line Placer for Piping, the SANHA Product Line Placer and the Henco Product Line Placer have been equipped with the new feature.
Using the Apps, you can now draw flexible pipe systems with special bends that allow you to draw in every direction and report the total length of the pipes with a schedule. It is not needed to configure this; it will work directly when selecting a flexible pipe type. You can simply form the pipe by clicking the next point for the bendable path to follow.
Creating a schedule with the total pipe length, which is required for ordering flexible pipe systems, is very easy. The Apps all provide a schedule for bendable pipe systems with the total pipe length. When showing the total pipe length within your project, you can make use of the included tag.
Easily add Tags
Tag functionality has also been extended, now allowing Revit users to add tags with information on bendable pipes such as measurements, lengths and diameters of the pipe. The 'Create schedule' and 'Tags' options can be found under the Create button in the Apps.
Improve your design workflow
Combining all of the App functionalities, you can now complete the design workflow for your entire piping systems within Revit: easily design the required flexible systems, add the relevant tags, and finally create schedules with all relevant data such as measurements, manufacturer data and article numbers. So your piping system can be ordered and fabricated right from within Revit.
