Date updated: Oct 23, 2023
We are pleased to announce the release of the latest version of PlantStream, Ver. 1.0.23. In this update, we have incorporated various new features that enhance the efficiency of PlantStream’s signature Route Assist function, along with several user-friendly interface enhancements for more intuitive operation.
Let us introduce some of the key new features in this release:
Expansion Loop Generation
We have added a feature that allows you to create expansion loops (bends accounting for thermal expansion, etc.) on pipe racks with just a few parameter inputs. If you need to generate multiple loops at consistent intervals on an extensive pipe rack, you can achieve this automatically by specifying the desired spacing.
Improvements in Feet-Inch Display
While PlantStream has supported specifying units such as feet and inches in the project’s unit system for some time, the latest version now allows you to display measurements not only as “5.25 feet” or “63 inches” but also as “5 feet 3 inches.” This enhancement ensures seamless compatibility for projects using Imperial units.
Enhanced Nozzle Auto-generation
The feature for automatically generating nozzles by simply selecting equipment and defining routes has become even more convenient. Nozzles are now generated with improved distribution, making collision avoidance easier than ever.
Improvements in Measurement Tool
In the measurement tool, you now have greater flexibility to snap to feature points. This allows for easy measurement of distances not only between pipes but also between pipes and equipment.
And many more!
PlantStream conducts version upgrades approximately every three months, providing our customers with a range of new features and improvements.
In addition to the features we’ve highlighted, there are numerous other enhancements and upgrades in this version. If you are interested in the detailed specifics of this update, please don’t hesitate to contact our technical consultants directly by following this link.
