nozzels

I want to create a equipment with nozzels such as this attachment...I can't create these nozzels with reducer Can you advice me how i can make...

We had a similar need, but maybe not exactly what you are requesting. Does the nozzle just need to be a different size than the line that it's connected to? If so, what we did to handle this was to add a property called "Independent Size", and created a separate annotation for it. We did not show a reducer though.

 

The only other thing that you could do would be to create a new nozzle type that had the reducer graphics built into the block. If you go that route, I would probably also add a property or two for the 'inlet size' and 'outlet size', which you could track in reporting if you wanted to. Also you would want to create an annotation that corresponds to these new properties.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Thanks,

Craig

Hi,

 

Can you be a bit more specific. What is it you're having a problem with in the process?
