SolidWorks Piping product brings the timesaving performance of SolidWorks to the task of designing piping systems. Built-in capability includes the ability to assemble piping networks built of standard content (from SolidWorks, fitting vendors or other suppliers) along with customer-developed content.

SolidWorks Piping was developed to be able to design systems requiring a wide range of piping technologies including butt-welded, socket connected, flanged, and thread-connected systems. In all cases, the fundamental capabilities of SolidWorks are maintained — including building on the 3D sketcher and the power of configurations to drive variations on the necessary fittings and parts. In fact, SolidWorks Piping only adds two more toolbar icons to the standard assortment provided by SolidWorks.

This guide provides detailed examples for developing pipe routes constructed of welded pipe and tubing components. These examples are included on the CD that accompanies this book. A piping sub-assembly is always a top-level assembly component.

When you insert certain components into an assembly, a piping subassembly is created for you automatically. Unlike other types of subassemblies, you do not create a piping assembly in its own window, and then insert it as a component in the higher-level assembly.

You model the path of the pipe by creating a 3D sketch of the pipe centerline. The software uses the centerline definition to generate the pipe and elbow components for the route.

The software makes extensive use of design tables to create and modify the configurations of piping components. The configurations are distinguished by different dimensions and properties.

A pipe part contains a configuration for each type and size of raw stock. As you create and edit the route, a new configuration is generated automatically for each unique cut length of the selected stock. The configurations are saved in a new pipe part; the original pipe part in the library folder is not changed.

Where there are bends in the path, elbows are added automatically. You specify a default elbow fitting to be used at each bend in the route. You can add various types of fittings to the route, such as flanges, tees, reducers, and so forth.
