I have a client that uses a raised flange Lug Butterfly valve to connect to flanged tube but I can't get Plant 3D to specify no gaskets. The rf lug connection has a built-in gasket on it so I don't need the bom to specify gasket. and if I delete them then it says the line isn't connected.
I have the same issue...already have a couple of threads about the subject.
It appears that you need something in the wafer connection....if you just have a bolt set, then you get 2 bolt sets...if only a gasket, then you get gaskets....to workaround, i added a set of gaskets that are 0.1mm thick and called the them up in the description(size) field as 'NOT REQD - Item included for modeling purposes only'
the other way is to have a bolt set that only shows half the number of bolts req'd then sub them in, so that the 2 bolt sets together add up numericaly to the number of bolts in one full set.
I created a new simple joint in project setup and told it to use bolt set as fasteners. When I insert the lug waffer valve now I have to click on the connection and change to the one I created, and the Iso comes up with no gasket, and I think its the correct number of bolts. For the 4" valve it has 16 bolts, Im assuming this is correct, 8 holes in the valve and bolted on both sides.
I work more with designing the building & equpiment in 3d, Im just getting into detailing the piping.
