contact MSI for Custom Pipe and Routing 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-designed 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.

MSI Solidworks piping tutorial

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.

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.
