Editpipe Version 9.0

Download Editpipe Enhancements pdf


 Changes in Editpipe Manager:

Select and copy text in reports windows

View spf files

New table FORCES in stress report generation


 Changes in Editpipe:

Better handling of include files (card INCL)

TRAN/FLUD card editor updated

New Data Lists for transient definition

Display of Thermal Transient Analysis Results

Some cards can be edited directly from the Data Lists

Generic Card Editor preserves text format

Text delimiters are no longer necessary in Card Editors for fields TI and AL

Possibility to disable errors and warning message when updating a view

Possibility to copy/paste data in most tables (e.g. in SPEC or TRAN editors)

Save icon is disabled if the file has not been modified since the last save

The Text Editor handles three types of files: free files for standard PIPESTRESS input, postr files for POSTR input and text files. Some functionalities, such as highlighting of text, depend on this type

New wizard "Quick POSTR" helps you creating the file for POSTR input in the same way as "Quick Pipe". It allows the user to define the input data for the new flange calculation feature added to POSTR

The Piping View has been modified and uses now the OpenGL engine for a better 3D visualization of the piping

It's now possible to define the geometry of BEAM cross sections so that they can be rendered in 3D

Export/Import options to/from a configuration file
