Creo Piping using Toolkit

Hello.

It is posible to rout a pipeline and add a fittings using toolkit in creo piping?

Anybody has such expiriens?

 

Looks like posible to get some information about pipes in creo, but not posible to create new features...

Re: Creo Piping using Toolkit

Actually, it IS possible to create a pipeline and route a pipe using Creo 2, Creo 3, and Creo 4.... however you can only create "connect" features and "extend" features. It is still not yet possible to add fittings with the API.

 

The methods "ProPipelineCreate", "ProPipelineCreateFromXML", and "ProPipelineSpecDrivenCreate" were all added to Pro/TOOLKIT back in Creo 2 M150. Similarly... the element tree for a "connect" feature can be found in the header file "ProPipConnect.h". The element tree for an "extend" feature does not have a header file to my knowledge... but it can be extracted and reverse engineered using other Toolkit APIs.

 

Also, as a side note...take a look at CadActive's AutoRouting application. It has a lot of functionality, and automates a lot of the piping geometry automatically.

Yes, it is not posible in current version Creo 3 and 4.

 

As a workaround I'll try to use UDF of piping features.
