Routing

Find the optimal path around components and generates anchor points

A routing SDK is available from the software; It can be used as the foundation to develop your own Bot in which you would add your in-house knowledge and design rules. It allows to generate first piping concepts taking into account only CAD and the desired wiring diagram.

With the SDK it is possible to mesh several rooms in order to build all the possible paths. A large variety of algorithms are available to search from these graphs the optimal path.

This first plot corresponds to a so called a first concept, and from this plot specific algorithms are used to design realistic plots that take into account the radii of curvature.

In the end, the SDK makes it possible to obtain a large number of different solutions in order to carry out analyses in the form of trade-offs or clustering.
