Arch PipeConnector


introduced in version 0.17 Esta herramienta permite crear tuberías desde cero, o desde objetos seleccionados. Los objetos seleccionados deben estar basados en partes (borrador, boceto, etc.) y contener uno y solo un cable abierto.

Como utilizar

  1. Opcionalmente, seleccione una forma lineal de Part como Draft Line, Draft Wire o un Sketch
  2. Presione el botón Arch Pipe, o presione P luego las teclas I



  • DatosLength: Sets the length of this pipe, when it is not based on a wire.
  • DatosDiameter: The diameter of this pipe, when its profile type is a circle.
  • DatosWidth: The width of this pipe, if its profile type is square or rectangle.
  • DatosHeight: The width of this pipe, if its profile type is rectangle.
  • DatosBase: The base wire of this pipe, if any.
  • DatosProfile: The base profile of this pipe. If not given, the pipe profile is determined by ProfileType.
  • DatosProfileType: The profile of this pipe, if not using a custom profile: circle, square or rectangle.

Typical workflow

  • Start by placing sanitary/hydraulic appliance items (below is an imported step file). You turn these objects into Arch Equipments by selecting them, and pressing the Arch Equipment button.

  • Arch Equipments now have a new SnapPoints property, which is a list of 3D vectors. This allows you to add custom snap points, to which you can snap when the new Draft Special snap button is turned on. Currently that property is only available to Python, though. In the case above I added a new snap point at the exit of the WC appliance. The vectors inside SnapPoints appear on the model as white dots:

  • With the new "Snap Special" Draft Snap, you can now snap to these custom points:

  • Now we can draw our piping using Draft Lines, Draft Wires, or Sketches. The best way, though, is using only Draft Lines:

  • There is now a new Draft Slope tool that allows to change the slope of Draft lines, to, for example, 5% (0.05). So we can quickly give our waste lines a correct slope. Only z coordinates are change by this tool, so we only need to snap them back to each other, the top projection will stay unchanged.

  • We now only have to select all our lines, and press the Arch Pipe button. Arch Pipe works with any Part-based object that contains one and only one open wire.

  • We can now create connections by selecting 2 or 3 coincident tubes, and press the Arch PipeConnector button. If 3 pipes are selected, two of them must be aligned in order to create a tee element:

  • Changing the connectors radius doesn't change the length of the underlying base line, only the resulting tube (by changing their OffsetStart or OffsetEnd property). So you can still draw your line layout with only straight lines, without the need to care about curves and radius.

It is also possible to create Arch Pipes without a base line, in this case use its "Length" property to define the length.



La herramienta de Tubería/Pipe se puede utilizar en macros y desde la consola de Python mediante la utilización de las siguientes funciones:

Pipe = makePipe(baseobj=None, diameter=0, length=0, placement=None, name="Pipe")
  • Creates a Pipe object from the given baseobj and diameter.
    • baseobj is a Draft Line or Draft Wire.
    • If baseobj is omitted, a straight pipe can be created with just the diameter and the length in the Z direction.
  • If a placement is given, it is used.
import Draft, Arch

p1 = FreeCAD.Vector(1000, 0, 0)
p2 = FreeCAD.Vector(2500, 200, 0)
p3 = FreeCAD.Vector(3100, 1000, 0)
p4 = FreeCAD.Vector(3500, 500, 0)
Line = Draft.makeWire([p1, p2, p3, p4])

Pipe = Arch.makePipe(Line, 200)

Pipe2 = Arch.makePipe(diameter=120, length=3000)
