Watts Pipe Cutter
« on: Jan 24, 2020, 02:42:57 AM »
Anyone out there with a Watts pipe cutter that does NOT use PypeServer to program it?

Watts recently started using their own software to program the machine and I'm curious to know how you're getting info from CADmep or Revit to it.

PypeServer can take PCF files but Stratus can also export a PSRV file which is a lot less configuration on the PypeServer side. Additionally, PypeServer and Stratus just completed phase 2 of a tighter integration where PypeServer will pass back the cut status to Stratus.

This in turn lets Stratus post back the cut status of your pipe to CADmep and/or Revit models.

We just got our cutter installed and we are not using PypeServer. They have us setup with the new software offering which I've been told is 3D-PP ;D but have found very little information about it online. We are exporting PCF files from CADmep for now but are still in the testing phase. I have been in/out of the project due to other projects I'm working on, I'll report back any new info as it comes my way.
