Plumbing Schematics


Recommended Posts

Just wondering how others are drawing 3D plumbing schematics? We have been using the HVAC tools, but they aren't overly user friendly. They don't automatically join, the vertical ducts can't be dragged to change their height, there are no falls on the straight ducts etc etc

Any improvement on this would be welcomed.

Thanks

For a schematic- use a 3d polyline and then 'extrude along path' with the desired diameter.  For more detailed DWV work, I have 3d symbols for most cast iron / pvc fittings and I extrude lengths of various sized pipe.

Thanks Ron

We have considered using EAP, that would work, but this isn't that user friendly either and I suspect would take just as long as our current method.

Would be good if there was a tool for this.

Cheers
