Field Point Wizards
Automatically insert hanger point locations, export pipe route points or use our commands to quickly place and export Field Points in CAD for use by Trimble Field Link for MEP or Trimble® MEP. These points can be used with the model within Trimble Field Link for MEP or Trimble® MEP to lay out the system on the job site.
Automatically insert hanger blocks
The hanger block insertion tool allows you to use custom hanger blocks and will quickly place the blocks at hanger point locations along the pipe run.
Intuitive Data Editor
Easily manage your fitting graphics with dimensions display, ribbon controls, constraints with error and customizable layout through our intuitive data editor
Use the router line to create single line route for horizontal, vertical or sloped systems. The AutoRoute program will fill the router line with your current spec and size to generate 3D pipe and fittings. Easily reroute to change pipe to a different spec or copy the route and fill each line with a different spec for rack piping systems.
Using connection rules and a spec driven setup, connecting to flanged components or cutting in flanged fittings to an existing run of pipe will cause flanges, welds and gaskets to be inserted as well.
Easily define and create spools using specific naming sequencers, templates and BOM settings.
Bill of Materials
The bill of material can be customized prior to placing it in the spool, but can also be exported to CSV.
Intelligent data is stored with each fitting
Using our Trimble PipeDesigner 3D query tool, quickly view the properties of any fitting. The data is also supported in the IFC export to Tekla® Structures and Tekla® BIMsight.
Our text entities are flexible enough to allow the CAD operator to use standard AutoCAD commands like move, erase or rotate to modify them. The text can be erased without erasing the pipe. Additionally, you can annotate sloped pipe by BOP, CL or TOP at any point on the sloped run. Label types include elevation, component name, size, system, fitting number, line number and spool number.
Parametric equipment program
Easily draw Vessels, Tanks, Pumps, Separators, Steel, Blowers and Exhausters
By managing the layer setup within the Trimble PipeDesigner 3D Data Editor, the fittings, welds, insulation, text ,etc. are all put onto the proper layer which minimizes the time managing such items and ensures company and project standardization within the modeling process
Export to Trimble AutoBid® Mechanical
Quickly export the drawing or parts of the drawing to Trimble AutoBid® Mechanical for pricing reports.
Supports 64 and 32 bit installations
Fully supported on 32 bit or 64 bit operating systems.
