AP3D2012 PCF export weld diameter missing

432 Views, 1 Replies

Hi

 

I'm testing export pcf file to CAESAR (pipe stress analysis soft)

 

The PCF file generated by AP3D 2012 and imported in CAESAR give wrong diameters : diameter change (Apparently randomly)

 

Here after an extract of this PCF file.

 

In this same file and for weld bloc,  if I manualy replace 0.0000 at the end of each line by the right diameter 100.0000 the importation in CAESAR work perfectly

 

Any solution ?

 

Thanks

 

extract of the  PCF file. :
