PypeServer Releases Enterprise 3.7
- New Olet Lookup System
- No Grind option for Miter Cuts
- Advanced features for Nesting, Data Selection, and Part Diameter.
- Enhanced features for Lincoln Electric’s Vernon Tool Systems
PypeServer Enterprise is the world’s most popular CAD/BIM to fabrication workflow software, with world-class features that let you pull designs directly from your model to cut on multiple machines.
This release introduces a powerful new Olet lookup system, No-Grind Miter Cuts, the ability to reorder and skip cuts across an entire nesting, checkboxes added to all major data grids for easier selection, an optional Nominal Diameter value for parts, and a whole lot more!
Here are some of the feature highlights in PypeServer 3.7. Please visit the PypeServer Enterprise page for more information.
New Olet Lookup System
PypeServer Enterprise 3.7 incorporates a powerful new Olet lookup system that can be used to automatically modify parts during importing with the Olet specifications defined in lookup tables. For example, a hole for a generic Olet may be specified with a nominal size of 1” and no bevel while the Olet fitting from your preferred supplier may require a 1.315” hole with a 22.5-degree bevel angle. The Olet lookup system allows you to define rules that will automatically recognize the generic Olet and modify the part with the hole size and bevel needed for the particular Olets you stock.
No-Grind option for Miter Cuts.
There are times when the torch cannot cut a miter as desired because of limitations in the machine’s ability to bevel the torch. In these situations, there are two options to getting a correct fit:
Standard Miter Cut: Excess metal that can’t be cut off due to beveling limitations is left in place and later manually ground off. This results in a fit with no undercut but requires manual grinding.
Miter Cut with “No Grind” Option Enabled: In this mode, PypeServer will shift the torch to keep the miter edge at the desired fit line. This results in an accurate fit but will result in an undercut of the pipe on the inner half of the miter joint.
Advanced features for nesting, data selection, and part diameter.
Enterprise Version 3.7 adds advanced functionality making it easier to cut parts the way you want. New functionality allows you to reorder and skip cuts across an entire nesting, giving operators even more control at the machine. Data grid selection has been improved with the addition of checkboxes for all major grids. Delineating part size just got easier with the addition of an option for setting Nominal Diameter Value.
- Ability to reorder and skip cuts across an entire nesting
- Checkboxes added to all major data grids for easier selection
- Parts now include an optional Nominal Diameter value
Enhanced features for Lincoln Electric’s Vernon Tool Systems
