Pipe network in 3d view
sandiegophil posted a topic in Civil 3D & LDDHello, I am giving a presentation of a rather extensive pipe network I created. It doesn't seem to matter if I walk, fly, drive through or orbit the model, all pipe to pipe connections look like two paper towel tubes stuck together at the center. The plan view is fine, with bends and such but not in 3d. Any help or suggestions would certainly be appreciated. Regards, Phil
Adding 1/8" Gaskets to Piping
Epicurwin posted a topic in AutoCAD 3D Modelling & RenderingI need to add 1/8" gaskets to flanged piping. My primary reason for doing this is so I can get the correct length for the pipe. I was planning on simply pulling the flanges back and 1/8" but when I do that it stretches the pipe. Is there a way to detatch pipe from fitting or fittings from fittings so I can move them independently. Or could I just add 1/8" gaskets in there somehow. I'm of course working in 3d. autocad 2007. I can always create fab-drawings by just doing the math with the current drawings but I want to try to get it in the model, just in case. I'd apreaciate the help. I'm probably working the weekend on this so don't be afraid to post soon.
