 Welcome to the CADPIPE Commercial tutorial. CADPIPE is an AutoCAD-based pipe design and drawing program for preparing two-dimensional and three-dimensional pipe designs. Using CADPIPE, you can create drawings and design piping systems faster and more accurately than with traditional methods. CADPIPE stores your design criteria and creates drawings using your shop specifications.  When you use CADPIPE, you create much more than a drawing. Your CADPIPE drawing is a database containing precise locations, sizes, and attributes of the pipe you draw. After you complete the drawing, you can retrieve and analyze this information to generate Bills of Materials for estimat-ing, ordering, shipping, fabrication, and installation.  This tutorial is a guide to help you evaluate the CADPIPE Commercial software.It is important that you have a working knowledge of AutoCAD and have completed and understood the instructional materials available for the AutoCAD software before attempting this tutorial.  This tutorial is designed to follow an order that reflects how a draftsman would design or draw a pipe system. The system we used could be designed in any number of more efficient ways and in some cases is not complete, but has been developed to expose you to as many drawing features of CADPIPE as possible. Installation
If you are evaluating CADPIPE Commercial (running the demo program without hardware locks), the program will run fully functional for 25 days from the date of installation. This should provide adequate time to discover the time saving benefits from easily drawing one 3D model, one time, and generating as many views and sections as necessary that will automatically be updated every time the model is changed. It virtually eliminates having to draw and redraw multiple orthographic views. Place the CADPIPE CD into your CD ROM drive If “Autorun” is enabled on your system, the installation screen will appear. ( If not, you will need to open your Windows Explorer, select the CD ROM drive, and double click on the “startcd.exe” file. From the first screen, select the “Install Products” icon. On the next screen, select “Commercial Pipe”. This will begin the installation process. The following screens will then appear: oWelcome screen oLicense Agreement oCADPIPE information oInstallation Type –If you are installing the full licensed version and have been given an installation serial number, then you should select “Imperial” or “Metric”. o Demo-If you are evaluating the software, then you should select “Imperial Demo” or “Metric Demo”. You will not be prompted for an installation serial number. oUser information oDestination folder oSelect components to install oWhether you will be running CADPIPE on Architectural or Mechanical Desktop. Select “no” if you will be running it on straight AutoCAD.
CADPIPE will then be installed on your system. Remember, if you are running the Demo version, it will expire after 25 days. Before You Begin
 Make sure you have followed the installation procedures. Included with your software is a base drawing called PIPETUTORIAL.dwg. This is the drawing you will use as you work through the CADPIPE tutorial. Tutorial Organization
 The CADPIPE tutorial has been organized to include many of the timesaving features of the CADPIPE Commercial program. While it is impossible to highlight every aspect of the program, we believe that after completing these exercises, you will have a good working knowledge of CADPIPE Commercial.  All AutoCAD commands referenced in this tutorial are shown in CAPITAL LETTERS (ZOOM, e.g.), while all CADPIPE commands are shown inBold(such asWalls tutorial is written The, e.g.). assuming you are using a mouse and selecting commands from the toolbars or pull-down menus. All system prompts in the CADPIPE tutorial are in italics and your responses are shown numbered. In addition, the metric equivalent to an imperial measurement appears in brackets: (600).
 To begin the tutorial, start a CADPIPE session from the icon on the start menu or the CADPIPE icon from your desktop (if you chose that option during the installation). Open the drawing called PipeTutorial.dwg. When the drawing appears on the screen, you will see that some of the back-ground is already complete and there are three pieces of equipment on the drawing (see Figure 1).

1-1 Chapter 1. Menus/Toggles CADPIPE Commercial automatically loads several menus and toolbars in addition to the standard AutoCAD menus. These menus contain all the functions needed to complete your piping designs and drawings. The CADPIPE pull-down menus available areCADPIPE,Place,CPTools,Arch, Equip, and Drawing Sheets. Toggles There are four important toggles on theCADPIPEpull-down menu. These affect drawing speed and fitting specification. TheTurn Fittings Righttoggle sets the CADPIPE Commercial turn direction for certain fittings. TheCollision Checktoggle tells CADPIPE to check for possible collisions every time you place a pipe or fitting. You should leave this toggle off unless you are working in an area where interference is likely so CADPIPE can place the pipe or fitting without spending time searching for collisions. TheAuto-Specifytoggle controls the specifications for the pipe and fittings you are placing. When the toggle is on, CADPIPE uses the parameters defined in the Specifications Database. TheSystem Spec Overrideyou to place a fitting that is outside of the currentlytoggle allows selected specification. Using these toggles properly will increase your drawing speed and reduce possible errors in material selection and placement. Toolbars There are a total of seventeen CADPIPE Commercial toolbars containing many commonly used commands found in the pull-down menus. They can be accessed and loaded via theCPTools--Toolbarstutorial we will mainly be using themenu. For this Design, Utilities, Edit, ISO Dimen-sion,andLabel Functiontoolbars. In addition, aFittingstoolbar loads according to the currently selected pipe specification. Figure 1-1 lists the CADPIPE commands associated with each toolbar button:

2-1 Chapter 2. Architectural Features
 This chapter will introduce you to Architectural features used to create working drawings for your pipe designs. In many cases, you will be able to secure a complete set of plans from an architectural or engineering firm. These options are found under theArchpull-down menu.
Note: CADPIPE automatically places Walls and Beams on layers calledWallorBeam. You can alter the color and layer using theConfigurecommand on theArchpull-down menu. Walls
1. SelectWallsfrom theArchand follow the system prompts on the command line.menu
Enter the elevation for the bottom of the wall <0”>:
2. Select the default 0” by pressing Enter.
Enter the elevation for the top of the wall <12’> (2500):
3. Type8’and press Enter.
Enter the wall thickness <1’>:
4. Type8” (200 )and press Enter.
Left/Right/<Select First Point>:
 You are now able to determine which side you would like the wall to widen from. If you select Left Ifthe system widens the wall from the left (relative to the direction the line was drawn). you selectRightthe wall is widened from the right. By selecting two points, the wall widens using the two points as a centerline (see Figure 2-1).

Repeat the same process (steps 1-8) to draw a wall between columns B-1 and B-2.
Beams and Joists
1. SelectBeamsfrom theArchpull-down menu. PickI Beamfrom theSelect Type of Beam dialog box and clickOK.
Column/First Point for Beam:
2. TypeCfor column and press Enter.
 By selecting a column, CADPIPE automatically sets the beam elevation.
Pick a Column to Place Beam on:
