Solidworks Piping Basic Course
  • ©2013 QuEST Global Services Pte Ltd. Confidential 2 Overview Design and documentation of piping and tubing for a wide range of systems and applications, including machinery, skid systems, and process plant piping by using Solidworks. With SolidWorks Premium, designers can: • Create piping system designs with butt welded, socket welded, threaded, and other connections • Create flexible or rigid tubing lines • Automate placement of supports and hangers for all lines • Generate bend tables for tube routes to support manufacturing • Calculate cut lengths for all pipe and tube runs • Auto-route pipe/tube paths through the design that can be easily edited according to assembly and service needs • Ensure minimum bend radii in flexible tube systems • Output PCF files for use with ISOGEN® piping software • Export tubing/piping bend tables to CNC benders • Automatically generate piping/tubing manufacturing drawings from your 3D models • Import logical connection information design from SolidWorks Solution Partner products • Automatically create bill of material (BOM), cut lists, bend tables, and other manufacturing documentation • Access a CAD library of piping and tubing components • Use the Routing Library Manager (RLM) wizard to guide creation of custom piping/tubing components

  • ©2013 QuEST Global Services Pte Ltd. Confidential 4 Guidelines to build the Routing • Define starting point • Select pipe stock • Create path • Choose and place parts • Remove Part • Move Part • Save the database
  • ©2013 QuEST Global Services Pte Ltd. Confidential 5 Solidworks “Routing - Pipes and Tubes” In Solidworks “Routing - Pipes and Tubes” is one of the Add-Ins. To enter Solidworks 2012 Start All Programs Solidworks 2012 Solidworks 2012 x64 Edition (CLICK)
  • ©2013 QuEST Global Services Pte Ltd. Confidential 6 Solidworks “Routing - Pipes and Tubes” • To begin, activate the SolidWorks Routing Add-In. • Tools / Options, Add-Ins
  • ©2013 QuEST Global Services Pte Ltd. Confidential 7 Solidworks “Routing - Pipes and Tubes” • To Enter “SolidWorks Routing” • Office Products (Tab) SolidworksRouting – Piping tab will be displayed
  • ©2013 QuEST Global Services Pte Ltd. Confidential 8 Solidworks “Routing - Pipes and Tubes” The Basic Piping Icons are shown below. Solidworks Routing will be activate only in Assembly mode.
  • ©2013 QuEST Global Services Pte Ltd. Confidential 9 Solidworks “Routing - Pipes and Tubes” Start Routing Create a sub- assembly below the main assembly. Save the sub-assembly .
  • ©2013 QuEST Global Services Pte Ltd. Confidential 10 Solidworks “Routing - Pipes and Tubes” After saving the sub-assembly, we want to select the connection point (C Point) as shown below. To create a c-point we need to select a vertex or sketch point and a plane or face or the end face of a cylinder to define start of the route. Always this message will be pop-up in a message box. Select a pipe data

  • ©2013 QuEST Global Services Pte Ltd. Confidential 12 Solidworks “Routing - Pipes and Tubes” Hold the point and drag to increase the length of the route or enter the exact length shown in parameters. Enter 1000” Start Point
  • ©2013 QuEST Global Services Pte Ltd. Confidential 13 Solidworks “Routing - Pipes and Tubes” Select the point and draw the line perpendicular to Y vertex
  • ©2013 QuEST Global Services Pte Ltd. Confidential 14 Solidworks “Routing - Pipes and Tubes” After exit from the line, automatically corner updated to radius. Note: Corners are controlled by updating “Routing Properties” ==> “Bends – Elbows”.
  • ©2013 QuEST Global Services Pte Ltd. Confidential 15 Solidworks “Routing - Pipes and Tubes” Adding fitting to spool piece Note: Always line want to be in edit mode while adding fittings items.
  • ©2013 QuEST Global Services Pte Ltd. Confidential 16 Solidworks “Routing - Pipes and Tubes” Press Tab button to rotate/flip the fittings items while placing. After placing the concentric reducer, the pipe automatically updated to the reducing size. After placing all fittings, come out of the edit mode.
