Ive got pretty good with the tube and pipe runs now, I am making runs, drawings, and BOM way faster than I could ever have done the old way (constraining many elbows to many pipes). But After getting a whole machine modeled, drawings completed, and BOM's finished I got thrown a curve ball and 2 out of 16 runs need to change size. The only way I can think to do this is to delete those 2 runs and start over with a different style. This means redoing those two drawings, balloons, dimensions and the BOMs. If there is a way to change from, for example, 1" threaded pipe style to a 1.5" threaded pipe style? Then my drawings, balloons, dimensions and the BOMs on them would update automatically.
Thanks in advance.
I'm having this same problem, I will create a hose run and then end up having to change the size of the hose. at that point I will edit the run and activate a different style withing the run but it doesn't seem to do anything. did you ever find a solution to your problem? if so could you please post it.
I asked the same question to my support reseller after the forum drew a blank. They sent me helpful vidoes whoihc I am happy to share if you send your email address. I could not upload here unfortunately.
Depending on how the pipe run was created, you should be able to change styles with no problems (or few). Especially a size only change. Changing actual specs (welded to threaded for example) may be abit trickier, but should still work. I do this all the time thanks to some finicky engineers.
If you have a specific issue please post a screen capture, or better yet an assembly that exhibits the problem behavior and we can take a look at it.
I apologize for not posting it here. What my problem ended up being was the ribbon panel that had the size and style on it was turned off by default I guess. I watched some youtube videos and saw it. Without ever seeing it before I had no idea it wasn't there. Now that I have some time invested in it I can fly through making routes and such. Changing size still creates some headaches, but very controllable headaches.
Happy to hear you're rolling now. I know learning T&P can be fairly painful.... so can working with it when you THINK you know what you're doing!
