Routings driven by pipe specs, any comments on Smap3d?

I use Solidworks Routings for 3D piping systems design with 2D orthgraphic detailed drawings and automatic BOM generation.

However, most of my time is spent creating parts or additional configurations of existing library parts and adding all the needed properties to the

part so I can get BOM's automatically. Thus, I spend more time seemingly in library development of piping components than I do design sometimes.

Does anyone have any experiences with SMAP3D that you could share as an alternative to using Solidworks Routings? Any good suggestions on 3D Piping

Libraries available or on the best method to populate piping part components or to create standard pipe fittings with different sizes? Configuration Publisher?

Property Tab Builder? How can I speed it all up and most quickly get my pipe spec driven library in good shape?
