I'm trying to import a Autoplant catalog into Plant3D using the Convert option in Speceditor.
For some components I need to use the pulled bend (CPBP) component in P3D. To achive this i'm trying to adjust the Geometry Mapping in the Convert settings for Autoplant. I need to change the 'CPB - BW' setting to 'CPBP - BW'.
However, although I can delete the exisitng items, when I try to add an extra item by typing 'CPBP' in the 'Add script name' fleld and either use the Tab key or clicking the '+', the entry disappears and the field stays empty, or I get an error: "Please enter a valid name"
Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong?

Solved! Go to Solution.
This is a bug, but there is a work around. What you will need to do is edit inside the ATPtoP3DGeometryMapping.xml
Firstly make sure to make a copy of the ATPtoP3DGeometryMapping.xml before editing
Inside the xml file search for "AT_ELBOW_LR_90"
Then you will add in the following (underneath the line <ScriptMatchCollection>):
So it should look like the attached screen shot.
Then when you re open the mapping settings for the AutoPlant to AutoCAD Plant 3D it will look like the 2nd image I have attached.
Hope this helps.
