I need a computer program for PEX tubing layouts
Salesguy Member Posts: 5
I am a distributor of "xyz" PEX tubing in the state of Indiana. I am trying to find a simple computer program that will allow my sales people to do a heat loss calculation and ultimately create a CAD drawing and material list. Please recommend any computer programs available. Also, please recommend any good design manuals available to the industry.
Heat Loss Program
Doesn't the manufacturer of "xyz" pex have a heat loss program?
Uponor has an advanced design program that will do loop layouts; some contractors use RightSoft. The programs do have a learning curve and require training.0
what part of IN?
What part of Indiana? I'm in Evansville. I use Microsoft Visio professional for tubing layouts, but it has a large learning curve.
The heatloss program du jour from pex tubing manufacturer and I use it for heat loss only. I have been doing this so long that I can (at least I think I can) calculate # of loops and lengths closer than any software program has been able to guesstimate.0
Hi, we have a program for floorplan drawing and loop layout. And on March 8, 2010 we are releasing a new version which will include integrated heat loss calculations, hydronic calculations, 3D and snow melt designs. On March 8th you can download a 30-day free trial at [url=http://www.LoopCAD.com]www.LoopCAD.com.
is an excellent product. When you load the program, it will ask you if you want to check for new versions. The upgrades are free and I look forward to downloading the new one on Monday.8.33 lbs./gal. x 60 min./hr. x 20°ΔT = 10,000 BTU's/hourTwo btu/ per sq ft for degree difference for a slab0
