Query regarding Spec editor and modeling rules

Hi there

I have few queries regarding spec editor and 3D modelling rules as mentioned below. Kindly focus on the query, if possible.

1)     What is the significance of “Part use priority” in spec sheet?

2)     I want to define certain rules to take care common errors while generating 3D models as mentioned below. I am not sure whether it is possible to create such rules or not. Kindly give the guideline to provide such rules if it is possible. Rules like

  1. Minimum distance between two weld joints or minimum pipe piece length
  2. To provide SW full coupling after every 6 meters in small size pipes, if straight distance is higher.

Kindly assist.

-'part use priority' is used when the program automatically inserts objects, it takes the item with highest priority.

-weld opening and minimum pipe length can be set in project setup

-maximum pipe length cannot be set in the model (but you can manually insert welds), but can be defined in the ISO setup.
