RE: I am searching advices about piping in Solidworks

(OP)
I am doing chillers, and i have to use solidworks to build the piping of the machine. I'd like to know what is usefull in solidworks to do well and quite fast

RE: I am searching advices about piping in Solidworks

Hi Sonic,
I do Chillers most of the time, I am assuming that they are of the Centrifugal or Reciprical type, and come flanged with 150#Flanges Raised Face, or Grooved Ends (ie Victaulic). You should use the 150Lb steel Pipe Selection with weldeable fittings A53 and Std.Wall Pipe A53 Gr.2B etc.
I wish I could see exactly what you are trying to do, then it would make it a lot easier for me to help you.
If you like send me your Email address and I will send you a AutoCad Ver.14
Dwg. of a recent job I have completeted.
Regards,
                Tony
