PIPENET Spray/Sprinkler Module Schematic

 

The ADD MULTIPLE PIPES and ADD MULTIPLE NOZZLES (Spray/Sprinkler only) options are found in the Tool menu, and are provided as a quick means of defining any number of similar pipes or nozzles using nothing more than a few mouse clicks.

A graphical underlay may be imported and displayed as a background to the main schematic. The graphical underlay may be zoomed independently of the main network to achieve relative scaling and registration, and its intensity can be adjusted.
Graphical underlays can be imported from an AutoCADTM DXF file, WindowsTM enhanced metafile (.EMF), or a Windows metafile (.WMF file extension).
