How do you input the data in the spec Editor 2012 to show the difference in schedule of pipe fittings. For example, a concentric reducer 4" SCH 80 LE x SCH STD SE.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Typically you would use the "Batch Assign Long Description Styles" function of Spec Editor to configure a new format or string for the properties you would need.
I attempted to configure the long description as you mentioned above. However, I wasn't able to use the size field for the second part of the string.
I am assuming you would want something similar to this for a reducer that changes in size and schedule (as an example):
4" SCH 80 LE x 6" SCH STD SE
Would be something like:
<Nominal Diameter>" SCH <Schedule> LE x <Nominal Diameter>" SCH <Schedule> SE
So there are two property fields for size and schedule in the spec, but the long description style editor only recognized the first entry for size and schedule.
The workaround I tried was to create 4 new fields:
But unfortunately you cannot use custom property fields in the long descriptions.
I have submitted this issue to the development team.
Does this issue been solved in PLANT 3D 2014?
So far I cannot find how to describe (using long description style manager) two-dimensional fittings such reducer or reducing tree. On iso drawing BOM there will be always first (larger) dimension parameters visible (i.e. wall thickness). It is very confusing.
Does this utility from ECAD solve the problem:
