OAKDALE, Minn. -- OnApplied has released a new piping plug-in extension for SketchUp(TM). It provides a tool set for the quick routing of specification-driven 3D pipe and fittings using a dynamic component catalog powered by an Internet cloud service.
The solution is well suited to design professionals that use the popular SketchUp application in their work-flows and need to create specification-driven 3D piping in their models. The initial release includes access to several carbon steel piping specifications and catalogs in a wide range of sizes.
"We're very excited to launch the first public release of PipeDraft. It's been several years in the making and embodies serveral industry firsts: It's the first solution in the piping and plant design CAD industry to harness the power of a public-facing cloud service to deliver piping content on-demand. It's the first piping solution for SketchUp that's spec-driven. And, it's the first piping solution for SketchUp that's compatible with both Mac and Windows platforms. SketchUp has millions of global users and we're delighted to provide several cost-effective editions of PipeDraft to meet a wide range of needs."
