The Pipe Bending Configuration Data node (the PipeBendingConfigurationData sheet in the Pipe Bending Manufacturability Rules.xls workbook) defines characteristics of pipe bend configurations in terms of its bend angles and rotations. The configuration data is limited to eight turns.

Is Bend Planar

Specifies whether the center line of a pipe bend configuration lies within a single plane. Enter 1 if the bend is planar. Enter 2 if the centerline of pipe bend lies in two or more planes.

Nominal Bend Angle From 1

Enter turn 1's bend angle lower limit, in degrees, for the pipe bend configuration.

Nominal Bend Angle To 1

Enter turn 1's bend angle upper limit, in degrees, for the pipe bend configuration.

NonPlanar Rotation Angle From 2

Enter turn 2's non-planar rotation lower limit, in degrees, if applicable, for the pipe bend configuration. This value provides the turn’s rotation out of the centerline plane and follows the right-hand rule based upon the direction from the pipe bend configuration's "grip end" towards the "pull end".

NonPlanar Rotation Angle To 2

Enter turn 2's non-planar rotation upper limit, in degrees, if applicable, for the pipe bend configuration. This value provides the turn’s rotation out of the centerline plane and follows the right-hand rule based upon the direction from the pipe bend configuration's "grip end" towards the "pull end".

Nominal Bend Angle From 2

Enter turn 2's bend angle lower limit, in degrees, for the pipe bend configuration.

Nominal Bend Angle To 2

Enter turn 2's bend angle upper limit, in degrees, for the pipe bend configuration.

NonPlanar Rotation Angle From 3

Enter turn 3's non-planar rotation lower limit, in degrees, if applicable, for the pipe bend configuration. This value provides the turn’s rotation out of the centerline plane and follows the right-hand rule based upon the direction from the pipe bend configuration's "grip end" towards the "pull end".

NonPlanar Rotation Angle To 3

Enter turn 3's non-planar rotation upper limit, in degrees, if applicable, for the pipe bend configuration. This value provides the turn’s rotation out of the centerline plane and follows the right-hand rule based upon the direction from the pipe bend configuration's "grip end" towards the "pull end".

Nominal Bend Angle From 3

Enter turn 3's bend angle lower limit, in degrees, for the pipe bend configuration.

Nominal Bend Angle To 3

Enter turn 3's bend angle upper limit, in degrees, for the pipe bend configuration.

NonPlanar Rotation Angle From 4

Enter turn 4's non-planar rotation lower limit, in degrees, if applicable, for the pipe bend configuration. This value provides the turn’s rotation out of the centerline plane and follows the right-hand rule based upon the direction from the pipe bend configuration's "grip end" towards the "pull end".

NonPlanar Rotation Angle To 4

Enter turn 4's non-planar rotation upper limit, in degrees, if applicable, for the pipe bend configuration. This value provides the turn’s rotation out of the centerline plane and follows the right-hand rule based upon the direction from the pipe bend configuration's "grip end" towards the "pull end".

Nominal Bend Angle From 4

Enter turn 4's bend angle lower limit, in degrees, for the pipe bend configuration.

Nominal Bend Angle To 4

Enter turn 4's bend angle upper limit, in degrees, for the pipe bend configuration.

NonPlanar Rotation Angle From 5

Enter turn 5's non-planar rotation lower limit, in degrees, if applicable, for the pipe bend configuration. This value provides the turn’s rotation out of the centerline plane and follows the right-hand rule based upon the direction from the pipe bend configuration's "grip end" towards the "pull end".

NonPlanar Rotation Angle To 5

Enter turn 5's non-planar rotation upper limit, in degrees, if applicable, for the pipe bend configuration. This value provides the turn’s rotation out of the centerline plane and follows the right-hand rule based upon the direction from the pipe bend configuration's "grip end" towards the "pull end".

Enter turn 5's bend angle upper limit, in degrees, for the pipe bend configuration.

NonPlanar Rotation Angle From 6

Enter turn 6's non-planar rotation lower limit, in degrees, if applicable, for the pipe bend configuration. This value provides the turn’s rotation out of the centerline plane and follows the right-hand rule based upon the direction from the pipe bend configuration's "grip end" towards the "pull end".

NonPlanar Rotation Angle To 6

Enter turn 6's non-planar rotation upper limit, in degrees, if applicable, for the pipe bend configuration. This value provides the turn’s rotation out of the centerline plane and follows the right-hand rule based upon the direction from the pipe bend configuration's "grip end" towards the "pull end".

Pipe Bend Type

Enter the codelist value of the pipe bend type for which you want to define configuration data. Valid bend type codelist values are defined in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the PipeBendType sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Bend To Bend Tangent Basis

Specifies how you want to measure the minimum tangent length between bend dimensions. This setting determines how the minimum bend-to-bend tangent lengths from the Pipe Bending Die Data and the minimum bend-to-bend tangent length data are interpreted by the software.

  • Enter 1 if the tangent length data is from turn point to turn point.

  • Enter 2 if the tangent length data is from tangent point to tangent point.
