Python Pipe Support

Python Pipe Support

Win64, English

Tamas Halasz
A small app which will provide big help to create fully customizable pipe and cable tray supports that you can not find in Autodesk® AutoCAD® Plant 3D by default.

General Usage Instructions

With this app you will be able to create pipe and cable tray supports that are not included in Plant 3D by default. All these additional supports are fully customizable and parametric, so they can be modified easily to fit to your needs.

After installation just run the PLANTREGISTERCUSTOMSCRIPTS command and restart Plant3D.

Then in the Spec Editor you can open your project’s pipe support spec (YOUR PROJECT\Spec Sheets\PipeSupportsSpec.pspc) and add the new supports to it from the provided SAMPLE catalog (YOUR CONTENT FOLDER\CPak Common\Python_Pipe_Support\V-01\Python_Pipe_Support.acat).

From here you can create as many pipe support catalogs as you want, just copy the provided sample catalog (rename it otherwise, it can be overwritten in case of reinstall!) and create as many new customizable pipe support as you want.

Happy customizing!
