  1. Hello, I have some drawings containing 2D lines in multiple layers (by pipe diameter). Now I manually check each intersection or vertex and mark the right fittings needed. Is it possible to create a simple object (a circle or something) at each vertex/intersection in a layer named as for example "dia 315 Y" "dia 160 elbow".... it's only for informational purpose, the looks don't matter. I need to order the right pieces and that takes a hell of a lot of time.... example.dwg

    Lisp for fittings

    Am looking for a Lisp routine that gives a sketch of the pipe connection and lists the fittings required. Basically the variables here are the pipe diameter and pipe material.

    Pipe network in 3d view

    Hello, 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
  4. Hello, I have a large pipe network. All works well with one exception. I am trying to apply a render material to the pipes and it renders very poorly. I drew a cube and sphere next to the network at an appropriate size, applied the same material and the cube and sphere render great but the pipes are nasty. I tried adjusting my ucs to one of the pipes and reapplying the material but I get the same result. Then I drew a cylinder in plan view the same size and length as a pipe and it worked great too. What am I missing? All suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks, Phil
  5. Hi, after seeing few videos about how easy is creating pipes in sketchup I desided to try the same technique in plain Autocad (not MEP or PLANT). So, this is where I get confused. I am starting to draw a polyline, (which will be used as a path in extrude command for circle) but I cant to raise it in Z-axis. I need to change the ucs and then I can do it, which is an extra, and always confusing) step which I am trying to avoid. Also, I've tryed to use 3Dpolyline but it seems that I cant fillet it (elbow creation). So my question is what is correct proccess to create 3d pipes in plain Autocad? Thanks.
