AutoORTHO is PROCAD’s spec driven comprehensive application for piping, structural and civil drafting. With an expansive selection of valves, flanges and fittings as well as an Auto-Pipe-Route function that automates the drafting process by placing components sequentially, AutoORTHO enables you to work faster and create more intelligent drawings.

Software Specifications

  • Supports pipe sizes: 1/8'' to 80'' (3mm to 2000mm)
  • Supports ANSI rating: 150# to 2500#; Threaded and Socket Weld: 2000# to 6000#
  • Includes a complete selection of standard pipe fittings
  • Includes all types of valves, including flanged in Raised Face, Flat Face, and Ring Type Joint
  • Includes Control and Pressure Safety Valves
  • Lets you select a pipe size threshold for automatic transition between Single and Double Line drafting modes
  • Includes functions to draw all sizes of structural steel, including Wide Flanges, Channels, Angles, Tees, and steel sections in multiple views
  • Includes functions to draw stairs, ladders, radial platforms, building outlines, doors, windows fences, and dikes
  • Includes a special utility to calculate pipe spacing on pipe racks
  • Operates in Model Space
  • Contains special utilities for moving between Model and Paper Space
  • Special utility for changing scales in Model or Paper Space view ports
  • Contains built-in intelligence for checking specification compliance and branch fitting type
  • Allows you to override pipe specification settings
  • Checks for the availability of fittings such as reducers, reducing tees, and swages
  • Automatically transitions between Butt Weld and Threaded (or Socket Weld) fittings, based on the threshold size specified in the pipe specification
  • Contains tools to automatically generate a bill of material (BOM)
  • Tags all pipe components with balloons containing their BOM number
  • Contains automated functions for equipment drafting
  • Contains a special utility to display the branch fitting type recommended by the current piping specification
  • Allows you to make changes to component attribute data
  • Allows you to erase an entire line by selecting one of the line components
  • Contains dimensional text utilities to compress or move dimensional text
  • Automatically annotates valves and line numbers
  • Contains an automated layering system where you can customize layers to conform to your company standards

System Overrides

To increase flexibility, the AutoORTHO allows the user to override the current spec settings and add special components or change the parameters for these components. The System Overrides include:

  • Welded Valves: places welded valves instead of flanged
  • Valve Face to Face Dimension: displays current dimension information from the database and gives you the option to change it
  • Gasket Thickness: lets you change the default thickness of a gasket
  • Bolt Length: lets you change the bolt length for special items such as wafer check valves
  • Nipple Length: lets you change the default pipe nipple length
  • Shop or Field: lets you change the shipping destination of components
  • System Toggles: The AutoORTHO includes system toggles so users can select to enable or disable some of the program’s functionality. These toggles allow users to customize the software based on their company’s standard practices.
  • Valve Stem: lets you choose to add or leave out valve stems
  • Material ON/OFF: lets you create piping designs without using pipe specifications
  • Branch Check: verifies the branch fitting type as set in the specification
  • Spec Check: informs you of specification default values and allows you to override them
