Cyclone : pipe run

Post by pmadec » Thu Jul 17, 2008 12:32 pm


I have a little problem when I use the pipe run tool in Cyclone.

The point is that after recognizing the pipe, when I press ok in the dialog box, the pipe doesnt appears...

I have checked that all objects were visible, so the problem can not be solved by this way.

Also, all other modelized objects are visible after their creation.

Pipe Run tends to have about a 1/10 chance of modelling the pipe correctly. Personally, I would not use it.

Region growing the straight sections of pipe and then fitting elbows is much better.

To get the elbow's bend ratio, region grow it - then check the properties of the grown elbow. Then undo the grown elbow and fit an elbow with the recorded ratio.

Hope this helps

If you don't see that there is nothing, then you are kidding yourself.

Did you check that all the layers are on? If the current layer is not visible, you will see the pipe during the 'pipe run', but if you click 'OK' the pipe will not be displayed.

Press 'Shift + S' and check in the tab 'Layers'.

Maybe this helps.
