3D Lines to Pipe reads line and polyline data from the imported DWG or DXF files and creates a matching pipe network to your specifications in a single click.
The DWG or DXF files can easily be created from existing point cloud data in Autodesk® AutoCAD® then imported to Autodesk® Revit® for creation of the pipe network.
This app is designed to help Surveyors, Engineers, Architects, 3D Revit Modellers and 3D Laser scanning technicians who need import as-built conditions and subterranean networks from site to office. It automates the tedious manual input of pipe elements that must match existing data.
It very accurately matches the centerline of the pipe to the imported lines, and you are able to choose pipe diameter, Pipe System Type and which level to add the pipes to during the processing phase.
Currently, pipe joins need to be added manually, but the automation of that process may be added to future releases.
