I want to add a saddle clamp to a steel pipe, the pipe is to be hard up against the steel member it sits on.
When trying to add a 'u-bracket' from the pipe supports tool,
plant is insisting on having a positive dimension in the 'BH' field.
the tooltip says that if BL of BW are 0 or -1, then no pipe pad will be drawn
if i have them at 0, no pad is drawn (as expected)
it will not allow me to have a -1 in the BL or BW fields
when not using a pipe pad (BL & BW are set to 0), it is still insisting on a non zero positive number in the BH field, any dimension here will force the legs of the strap into the adjacent steelwork!
is this considered a bug
is this going to be fixed
is there a better work around than using a tiny value [say 0.1mm] for BH (and living with the 0.1mm interference)
You can do it your own way,
If its done just how I say!
