AUTOSAN: software application for drain networks design Examples of drain pipes, sewage pipelines drafted with AUTOSAN

Preference Settings

Automatic loading of preferences from the DWG file
(When opening a DWG file, the relevant preference file automatically loads up. It includes the latest modifications)
Working unit
Drafting scale
Layer management:
    By specialty, by geographical location and by single-line or double-line drawing mode (very flexible)
    By type of graphic entity (network, materials...) 
    Several types of layer combinations (time saving)
Graphic variables for representation of:
    The appearance of ducts
    Texts, dimensions, arrows, conduits intersections
A range of hatching styles to symbolise coverings (thermo isolation, flocking)
Computation variables:
    Conversion of rectangular/circular sections, coefficient of roughness of 
    materials
    Flow units, pressure drops units
Sets the TP scales and handles switching between model space and paper space automatically (can be switched on or off)


Management of drawing backgrounds

Colour of entities
Colour of layers
Resetting the Z coordinate
Option to isolate texts, hatches, dimensions...
Text fonts handling
Option for renaming layers for intelligent sorting
Management of the unit system (Metric/Imperial)
Line thickness and TP scale management...


Drafting

Point to point supply routing in single-line mode according to the material specifications
Optional insertion of 45° elbows
Create inspection covers more easily
Point to point drain routing in double-line or single-line mode according to the material
Link with AutoTUBE’s double-line mode with sharing of common parameters
Library of water fittings
Point to point routing of underslab networks
Detailed drawing of all the accessories according to their configuration
Library of customizable kitchen and bathroom facilities
Library of standard components


Quick Modification Tools

Changing an object (turning an elbow into a slope, changing the ND of an already drawn duct, changing a topside connection into an underside connection...)
Moving an object (when drawing a reduction the conduits adjust and adjacent elbows follow automatically...)
Deleting an object (the conduit 'closes' automatically on deleting a connection...)


Arrows

Automatic drawing and positioning of flow direction arrows
Automatic adjustment of arrow directions
Representation of slopes
Layer management specific to plumbing arrows

 

Other Features

Show crossed networks in double-line or single-line (by hiding or ‘cutting’ with an offset of one duct in relation to another, with only 2 mouse clicks)
Automatic rebuild of sectioned conduits
Manipulation of layers (freeze, transfer, lock, etc...)
Dimensioning settings (unit, number of decimals, arrows, etc...)
Simpler dimensioning operations than with AutoCAD. Automatic update of dimensions on changing the settings
Proportionality factor
Thickness management
Type of lines with inserted letter


Texts

Single-line or multi-line texts
Automatic update of the number of lines
'Click to text' function: when clicking onto a network, some related data automatically pre-populate the text field (such as the air duct portion)
Automatic insertion of prefixes and suffixes in the texts
Automatic section formatting according to the material specifications
Automatic insertion of leader lines, frames, arrows, points, etc.
Automatic adjustment of the leader line and frame when the text is modified
Choice of the character font and of its size
Automatic scaling
Automatic calculation of levels

Quantities

Definition of plan zones for the network and material bills creation
Immediate and automatic extraction of conduits and material quantities within the predefined zones.
Immediate and automatic extraction of equipment quantities within the predefined zones.
Material bills exportation to AUTOCAD or EXCEL.
Automatic insertion and management of assigned blocks.


Openings

Drawing of openings in slabs or in walls using the conduits' drawing.
Drawing of openings in slabs or in walls without using the conduits’ drawing
Choose the shape of the openings
Automatic dimensioning of openings
Automatic location and tagging of markers
Update of an opening drawing on changing its assigned tag
Extraction of openings list and export to AUTOCAD or EXCEL


Page Layout

Automatic drawing page layout with creation of presentations
Automatic insertion of formats and title blocks
Create detailed views
Calculate the scales and update the scale of views
Automatic insertion in the margin of the file name, of its path and of its associated XREF


Computation

Sizing and Altimetry :
Computation of a duct section according to the flow (or power and Delta T)  in relation with speed constraints or pressure drops limitations
Computation of the coefficient of friction (j) of a duct section
Computation of a network size according to its representation
Quick computation of added sanitary supply base flows
Computation of levels in drain networks which are already drafted
