Drain fittings library

Recommended Posts

 

I want to show a section in my plan (as per attached) and would like to add in the waste drains as per attached picture. 

Is there a library for waste fittings or do I have to draw it in the old fashioned way?

Joe, I don't think there are any plumbing fittings in the library. I had previously done a search in X10 for fittings, and also manf. catalogue that might have fittings, but wound up modelling my own with P-solids and saving each one / type in my User Library under Plumbing. Naming each one to type (i.e. wye, 90, etc.)

Thank you, I have made them myself in the past but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask in case someone new something I didn't.

I found some basic pipe fittings @ 3D Warehouse and was

able to import them into Chief but I wasn't smart enough to

get the origin offsets to line up properly so aligning the

fittings onto the pipes was a total crap shoot. The results

turned out pretty well though.

I have never used 3D Warehouse. Is it a free sign up or do they charge when you set up an account? Can you give me the simple down-low? Not sure what I'm looking at whan I go to the site.
