Re: Changing Pipe Material

You can go to Home....Create Design....Part Builder...go to Pipes in your Part Catalog....select a pipe...such as Reinforced Concreate Pipe...select the Modify Part Sizes box (should be second box on bottom)...the drawing of pipe should open up with detail on left...expand Pipe..expand Part Configuration...right click name of pipe...edit name there....be sure to Validate...& Save Part Family (symbols up top).....

Can you show me a screen shot of that last step? I found everything all the way to "Parts Configuration" but then there are a few fields listed there with icons next to them. One says "PVC Pipe" at the top already and the only other one I can change says "Undefined"

I thought that was it, changes "Undefined" to "PVC" but it doesn't fix the problem.

Change the Material in the Parts Catalog (instead of Part Builde) under Pipes to PVC... that was the first thing I suggested especially if you already have a parts catalog.  .I'm on East Coast so I'm leaving for the day......I'll check on this tomorrow.....

I believe I figured it out.  Check out the attached PDF.  I'm sorry for not posting it sooner.  I got busy and, well, you know.  Then I was reminded when the chatter began again.  This was my work around.  I don't know if it's the most efficient, but it worked for me. 

 

Tell me what you think,

From what I can tell that looks like it will work excellently! I will check it out tonight, or maybe tomorrow, and get back to you on how it works for me!

Thanks!
