Changing Pressure Pipe Catalog location-2014

810 Views, 3 Replies

I copied the pressure pipe catalogs to our local network and in C3D 2014 set the catalog to the network location.

When I close C3D and reopen, it reverts back to the original catalog location on my C drive.

 

Setting a different location for regular pipe networks works fine.

 

Is there something I'm missing or does this method not work for pressure networks.

 

Thanks.

I believe that setting is saved per drawing. Set it in the drawing, save the drawing, close, and reopen. Does that work?

It appears you are correct, but it isn't that way with the Pipe Nework Catalog location.

That's very confusing.:smileysad:

Back to square 1.

Not sure when it happens, but trying to tweak the catalog, it reverts back to the install location.
