The available API’s are restricting the ability to create sheet metal components and repads in Inventor. We are currently looking at alternative methods.

Currently, these BOM Part Numbers and Descriptions must be added after the import.

This was demonstrated in the webinar. If you have any further questions or would like to look at a sample file, please let us know.

We added the “precision” tab to the Codeware Interface with build 7510. This allows the user to customize the number of decimal places that are applied during import. Adding connection points to nozzle components is currently on our development list.

To edit the model mates/constraints would need to be applied and then the model could be updated. As demonstrated in the webinar, we are working on a tool to provide more functionality with editing nozzles.

We are currently working on automated detail drawings for saddles. Please note that these detailed drawings are based on the saddles as they were created within COMPRESS/INSPECT.

It is our intention for all vessel designs to be completed within COMPRESS/INSPECT to ensure code compliance. We are actively developing methods to prevent the need to manually adjust the vessel or perform another full import. It is our intentions for all vessel changes to be performed in COMPRESS/INSPECT.

Yes, the Codeware Interface is supported for both SOLIDWORKS and Inventor.

The NPS values are only applied when the “Standard Size Look-Up” button is used in COMPRESS/INSPECT.

Yes, with the exception of the sheet metal import feature.

The nozzle cut lengths are determined within COMPRESS/INSPECT by formulas. In some cases these formulas differ slightly from the solid model. Furthermore, the calculations are unaware of the fabrication methods when producing nozzles with thin features as present with extreme offset nozzles. We are currently working on methods of determining the nozzle cut lengths based on the physical model.

Currently the weld sizes for nozzles are brought into Codeware Interface and applied as properties.

The nozzle detail views are created using the same functionality which is available if done manually. Once placed, these dimensions can be modified or other dimensions can be easily added to the views.

To be as modular as possible, the nozzle detail drawings are placed on their own sheet. Once placed, these detail drawings can be moved to other sheets by the user.

Currently this would have to be performed manually. As library parts are common, we are investigating methods to replace models with library parts.

Currently the vessel will need to be re-imported or the changes could be manually applied to the solid model. We are actively developing methods to prevent the need to manually adjust the vessel or perform another full import. It is our intentions for all vessel changes to be performed in COMPRESS/INSPECT.
