Contact MSI for Additional Modules or for Custom Control Panel Designs

The MSI Controls Library is not just a collection of component files but forms a "system" to assist in the
effective 3D design of Electrical Control Cabinets.

-  Only "standard" Solidworks commands are required, resulting in a quick learning curve and dependable Panel assemblies.
-  Simplified component shapes provide small file sizes and are useful for adding new components.
-  Every component automatically populates BOM's through Custom Properties.
-  Components snap into position on Din Rails or through holes for quick placement.
-  Many components include Smart features.
-  Design Tables are built into most files, allowing for easy addition of related part numbers.
-  Manufacturer Data Sheets PDF's are linked to part files for quick and easy reference.

Note:  Electrical Schematics should be Completed before using the MSI Controls Library.

MSI Custom Pipe Design



Contact MSI for Custom Design Projects

It is not uncommon for piping to be installed by pipe fitters using only schematic diagrams.  However, there are a number of reasons why full 3D designed pipe routs can be very valuable:

  1. If pipe spools are used in a "standard" assembly.  A detailed pipe rout drawing allows for pipe spools to be assigned a part number and inventoried.
  2. To help develop competitive piping quotes.  If the suppliers are only working from a schematic, there may be a considerable difference in the final installations, which may make it difficult to compare quotes.
  3. In cases where the required materials are expensive, designed pipe routes can be used to optimize the costs.
  4. For designs where the space is relatively limited.  Pre-designing pipe routs can increase the confidence of having a good installation while potentially increasing the ease of future maintenance.
  5. Pre-Designed pipe routs allows for all departments to review and approve the design before installation.

    Solidworks Pipe Routing is a powerful design tool.  However, the learning curve can be relatively difficult.  If the user has a good understanding of SolidWorks and working knowledge of 3D lines,  this tutorial provides step by step instructions to help the user to setup and begin using the Pipe Routing Add-in.

    A few of the significant areas that are covered are as followed:
    1. Initial setup of Pipe Routing.
    2. How to start a Pipe Route and some reasons when to use the <Start at a Point> or the <Start by Drag/Drop> methods.
    3. The use of automatic route development.
    4. A number of issues involving the Editing of Pipe Routs.
    5. How to add components and 5 methods of orientating them.
    6. The importance of, and how to add sub-routs.
    7. How to obtain proper flanges and gasket interfaces.
    8. How to deal with some common error messages.
    9. And several other topics.

    (Note: shown with MSI Gasket and Flange module- a separate future module.)

    The Welded Extended Library generally consists of the original Solidworks files with additions and improvements:

    1. The files have been moved to a single directory for more efficient use.
    2. The color and materials have been updated and improved.
    3. A custom "Description" field has been added to all configurations to automatically populate Bill of Materials.
    4. Some sizes and parts have been added.
    5. Step by Step installation instructions are included for the extended library.
    6. For further information on how to use SolidWorks Pipe Routing, Refer to the MSI SolidWorks Piping Tutorial manual (at top of this page).
    MSI Welded Flanges and Gaskets

    This MSI extended module is an "add on" for the MSI Welded library Module.  The MSI Welded library module needs to be downloaded and installed first.

    At least in older versions of the Routing Add-in, Solidworks does not always "respect" and provide for the proper gasket spacing.  These MSI flanges correct these issues for a 1/8" and 3/16" gaskets.
