CAD2HCP will permit you to prepare your sprinkler layout drawing with any 2D CAD program (the excellent free LIBRECAD one is shown here), following a few, simple guidelines to add some text alongside the pipe sizes on the LINE / CIRCLE entities :- Choose "Open" in CAD2HCP to select the file name to see this automatically generated 3D isometric using these items of text :- Just click on the heads within the required branch lines to immediately do all the full hydraulic calculations with the flow rates shown and the most remotest head in green :- One more click will show part of the RESULTS (use the 'arrow' keys to see the rest) :- and one more click will PRINT to PDF or inkjet/laser printer if needed, or SAVE TO JPG, ZERO HEADS (to start a new design area) with other 3D views of your system and helpful labels (such as pipe pressures shown here) "zoomed in" :- I think you will find CAD2HCP is a viable, zero-cost alternative to your current task of abstracting and duplicating a lot of information and data from the sprinkler layout drawing to / from a separate hydraulics program, for the same project.

With my latest program, the 2D CAD drawing is the hydraulics data file to the latest NFPA / FM Rules in metric units.

Calculation of hydraulically designed sprinkler (room design and area/density methods) and spray systems to the NFPA 13/15 and FM Global Rules in metric units.

Node references are only required at tees / crosses (not at each end of all pipes) and you give the size, length, direction and slope of the pipes to the operating heads / nozzles so a 3D picture is produced as a DXF file.

If you hold your mouse button over one of the 8 data points, you can then slide it up or down and have the pump curve drawn out to suit with the revised Qcap / Qmax values.

Full hydraulic calculation of sprinkler and spray systems to various International Rules in metric units.

You just draw out the sprinkler heads and pipes following some simple guidelines in your existing CAD program and add sizes / notes (mainly on vertical pipes) and you have finished - both the layout drawing AND as many hydraulic calculation areas as you want a few minutes later with this program.

The following screen shots show how you run CAD2ENRULES with your 2D CAD layout drawing all done in Libre CAD or similar (here zoomed in to the top left hand corner) :- Choose "Open" in the program (under Windows 7) to see the 3D isometric full size :- Just draw a "box" around heads in a plan view or click on the heads at the end of the required ranges in an isometric view to immediately do all the full hydraulic calculations with the flow rates shown, with the most remotest 4 heads in green :- One more click will show part of the RESULTS (use the 'arrow' keys to see the rest) :- and one more click will PRINT to PDF or inkjet/laser printer if needed, or you can get other views of your system with helpful text information.There is just one way and place to add, break, copy, delete, edit, move, locate or view pipes - no confusing options to learn or superfluous videos / manuals needed to find out what does what!You may have a background CAD drawing so can "draw" the pipes on the building / rooms / services plan rather than a blank screen.TXT - but you can add to, change or copy it as many times as needed for your own country / company / specific projects / CEA / DBI / CP52 / AS2118 etc Sprinkler Rules and can even translate the text into your own language as shown below :- No longer do you have to waste a lot of time in entering most (if not all!) the pipework / sprinkler heads that you have already drawn on the 2D CAD sprinkler layout plan into a separate hydraulics calculations program.See the CAD2HCP program above if you prefer to do the CAD drawing first.
