Below you can find information about the different versions of Axelerator. Please don’t hesitate to contact our support department if you have any additional questions.
Filtering is now able to accommodate any inline parts that makes finding the desired component a lot easier and more intuitive. The valve type can now be set to any value. The Instruments category will now also be able to accommodate any instrument, for example pressure transmitters in addition to flow meters.
Axelerator now uses link spec to project instead of the previous copy spec to project function. This offers two advantages:
- The user will have the same spec in all projects, regardless of the age of the project.
- Those who work with vault projects does not have to update the spec in vault anymore whenever there is a new version of the Axeleratorspec. Each user simply has to make sure to have the most up to date spec.
Users that are upgrading from a previous version will have to go into each project and click “remove spec from project”, then click on the Axelerator button and the question ”do you want to link the spec to this project?” will pop up and select yes.
The right click function has now been completely reworked from scratch. We can now link anywhere and quite easily make updates whenever a link is broken. The link is now part of the database which makes everything simpler.
The info window now contains information about the version of the spec, referred to as
“Content date”. There is also a link to the logfiles in case of trouble shooting.
We have also added support for AutoCAD Plant 3D 2023, which means that Axelerator now supports 2018-2023.
Update content – A new function that enables Axelerator to download new content regarding components and functions without having to re-install the entire application. This entails much more convenient and simpler handling of the content, and also provides the possibility of being able to update more often with more components. Just click on the “Update content” button, and Axelerator will search for new updates and install them (if there are any). A change log has also been added for use with this function. After an update has been performed, a pop-up window appears and asks if you would like to open the change log. If you click “no” in the pop-up window but later change your mind, details of the update can still be viewed under info -> change log.
Rotate actuator/switch/lever – Place a component on a pipe and then right-click on the component to rotate the valve control mechanism in steps of 90 degrees counter-clockwise. This facilitates installation in tight spaces and provides a picture of the amount of room required to manoeuvre a lever or other such control device.
Multiple replace – Select several components at the same time, press “enter” and then select the component in the list that you wish to replace all the previously selected components with.
Request component – A new button that is linked to axelerator.se/en/request-content, where it is possible to enter the components you are missing. More information about this function will be provided in a later mailing.
Facing B1 and C has been added for components with flange connection. During a transition period, Axelerator will have support for both B1 and C. The correct facing is B1, which is raised face according to ISO 1092-1 and is also the most common type of flange according to both EN and ANSI/ASME. However, Plant 3D has used facing C since the start, and although they have now made an adjustment to B1, there will still be a transition period until everyone’s pipe specs have been adjusted to B1, and consequently we will have double settings until then for components with flange connection.
We have also added support for AutoCAD Plant 3D 2022, which means that Axelerator now supports 2018-2022.
