I have tried and tried but cant figure out how to create a schedule that shows the radius of conduit elbows. Does anyone have any ideas? I am using Autocad MEP 2012

BTW:  You can add a manual text property to your equipment schedule and type in the diameter.  Again, it is a manual process.

This ability to "automatically" schedule the bend radius of a parametric conduit elbow does not yet exist in the program. The arc diameter dimension on the part inside Content Builder is not available as an automatic property outside of Content Builder.  It cannot be added to schedules.

 

We do believe that this would be very helpful to have in the program, and feel that you raise a very good case for enhancing the product. 

 

If you would take the time to go here: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?siteID=123112&id=1109794
