The tool I've shown provides me enough info to ensure I have the space I need to get plumbing to work in a house. That is what i think is the most important thing I need to do as an architect.

Personally I would not model all the pipe junctions in a project. It would be way too time consuming. It might be good to get a schedule of fittings from a fille. But VW worksheets interface need a LOT of work. Way to slow and risk prone to typo errors in search fields befor I could rely on the info in a contract.

For those who want BIM for measures and scheduling I'd say take a look at Revit. I think you will find they already have pipe tools like this.

It took me about 4 days to write my tool. With plumbing and drainage in every house, There is no excuse for VW not to have a basic functioning 3D pipe tool in the architect version.
