SECTION 1

SIZE LIMITATION

The evaluation copy of CAEPIPE you have downloaded is a


Full, Working Copy - limited only to 20 lines of input. You can
only save / analyze models that fall within this size limit.

SECTION 2

REVIEWING BIGMODEL.mod

As you cannot build a big model within the 20 element


limit, SST includes a 'pre-saved', 'pre-analyzed' Big Model
(650 elements) so that you may view all portions of such
an analysis anytime you wish.
Simply File>Open - BigModel.mod
This model is the one that opens when you first install and run CAEPIPE.

SECTION 3

REVIEWING SAMPLE.mod

For your easy evaluation, an Acrobat document


Tutorial-1.pdf has been provided which gives you step-by-step instructions
on how to build the sample model within 20 min.
This pdf file is located in your CAEPIPE\xxxx subdirectory
which was created when you installed CAEPIPE.
Find and print this document.
To be prepared for an efficient conversation / use of your time,
2

build your own (use a different model name) model before


calling SST's technical support.

SECTION 4

FULL CAEPIPE USER'S MANUAL

The CAEPIPE v6.x Full User's Manual (PDF Format) is available at SST's
Website - Download Page. http://www.sstusa.com/downloads/kpipe-usersmanual.pdf
It is suggested that you review this material
AFTER you have Reviewed the bigmodel.mod, Printed and used the Tutorial.pdf
to construct the sample.mod.

SECTION 5

HOT KEYS

Like most advanced software, CAEPIPE has HOT KEYS - ways to


more easily input/edit data. Execute the software, under HELP menu, navigate
to the Menus section. This section has the different menus with hotkeys, function
descriptions and equivalent icons.

SECTION 6

SST's TECHNICAL SUPPORT

Once you have cursorily reviewed the Evaluation software, viewed the
BigModel, and built a Sample Model, a 10 minute conversation
with SST's Technical Support personnel can save you many man hours
in completing your software evaluation. Use this resource.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE:
Technical Support, and how responsive they are is one item
which rarely is listed when any pipe stress analysis software
is evaluated and certainly such is even more rarely listed
as a deciding consideration in recommendations to management.
As you are the individual that will be required to use this software, long term, this
issue is of supreme importance to you. You can only be convinced of the depth
and responsive nature of SST's technical support by obtaining support NOW,
before your evaluation is complete.

SECTION 7

USE CAEPIPE-EVAL FOR REAL WORK

We call this CAEPIPE-EVAL (a full, working copy, limited only in


size) our ADDICTION PACKAGE.
We want you to use it for Real Work. There is no reason you should
ever do 'hand calculations' again. Further, the Evaluation is not copy
3

protected - for a reason. Give copies to co-workers. Let them use

it too - free.SECTION 8
