What fast shapes program do I buy for a simple tube cope/notch layout? I join two 13' OD pipes together at 90 degrees. Just need to draw out the layouts for my plasma.

This is what I need to cut out. Just a 90 degree cope. PBranch seems to be what I think is correct. The website is not very helpful. Just want to buy the correct program.

Hi Matt,

Yes PBranch for "Pipe Branch" will assist you with the flat pattern for Main pipe hole and the Branch pipe end.

See attached screenshots for the interface for PBranch

I just purchased PBranch. Is there downloadable information or something that will explain all the parameters on this program? Again. this is all new to me so its a process. The main tube is 34" tall with a 30 degree slant on the top, and a the branch section lengths will vary. If there is information I can download, will it show me how to output the file as .txt? Attached is an image of the finished product I need to cut out. Thankseb29aa46e577f617ca373242e2b9e659

Hi Matt,

There are actually two developments in there. One is the PBranch, including the main and the branch. The other is half an elbow for the top, to get the slant. There will be a more indepth email to you shortly!

Cheers,

Hi Alex, I have lost the email that you sent regarding the half elbow. I have figured out how to use PBranch, butI have no clue how to draw that main body with the 3 degree slant.
