3skeng Pipe Tool


We put the “Pipe Tool” to many “real life” tests, constantly work to improve it and enable it to handle our biggest and most complex pipeline and round ductwork designs.


“Pipe Tool” using the conceptual mode

All you need to model conceptual pipelines is integrated in this tool.
Pipes, T-pieces, Y-pieces, reducers as well as elbows are generated and connected together in a smooth workflow with only few mouse-clicks.
You have access to the most common standards (ANSI, ASME, ISO EN and JIS) and determine the dimensions of fittings with only a few clicks. Magnetic points and a memory function are powerful parts of the tool and assist you in the process.


“Pipe Tool” using the detail mode

The detail mode brings 3D piping design to a whole new level.
The access to detail mode (switchable in the 3skeng client) allows you to use libraries with dimensions that are available on the market. Detailed pipe libraries are available on the library page.
The embedded auto-pipe function helps you to connect 3skeng components and allows you to select one of the possible configurations. Auto-Pipe is available for both conceptual and detail mode.



Libraries for 3skeng Pipe Tool detail

When you feel the need to leave the conceptual stage, the “3skeng Pipe” detail mode takes your 3D Piping Engineering to a whole new level.
Use libraries that have been created based on market available pipe sizes, components and fittings for various materials in ANSI, EN and DIN standards. A ready-to-install bill of material (BOM) is just a few clicks away.
Get detailed information about the libraries’ content in pdf-files available in the client of the 3skeng software (after installation and activation). Here you can also buy libraries to add to your 3skeng work environment. Libraries can be used for one year (starting from day of purchase).
