Solved! Go to Solution.
The "Pipe Label" uses the 'Mark' property from the "Pipe-FittingObjeccts" PSD (at least on my machine... if I explode the tag enough times, I see: "Pipe-FittingObjects:Mark".
It shows: Nominal Diameter, Abbreviation, Specification Number, Insulation Type, and Insulation Thickness.
Do you want/need all those additional properties in the Tag? Or, do you just want a fractional inches tag? You could get that with the 'Label' tool (instead of the "Pipe Label" tag tool).
i see where I can toggle the ABBREVAITION, SPECIFICATION, and INSULATION. I would like to still be able to toggle those properties. I could use the LABEL, but the problem is, LABEL will not work on a VIEW DWG when the piping is on a CONSTRUCT in PROJECT NAVIGATOR.
Style Manager > Documentation Objects > Property Set Definitions > Pipe-FittingObjects > Definition Tab > Double Click 'NominalConnectionDiameterToggleSwap' to edit the formula.
In the middle box on the right, in the row that starts with "NominalConnectionDiameter" set the Format to 'Number - Fractional"
Click OK OK
Save/close the drawing, the tags should update when you re-open... or, you can use the command OBJRELUPDATE to force them to update.
Can you help me with another one? We do alot of refrigerant piping, which is catoagorized by the O.D. of the pipe. How would i change the formula to show the O.D. of the pipe? EXAMPLE: for 1" Brazed copper, tag would show 1-1/8" for O.D. of pipe? Thank you in advance.
This is a bit more complicated, but not insurmountable... the complexity is in the definition of the PSD , which is designed to be very flexible... however, with flexibility comes the complexity.
Instead of trying to describe in a post, I created two short videos, the first shows the creation of a new property to show the Actual diameter... then the second shows the creation of the tag block.
