Hi Yuri,

The sample PY that can be downloaded from the documentation page here: plantregistercustomscripts produces the PYC and supporting output files (image attached) for me on W7x64. The catalog builder can consume PYC scripts after they are registered.

If you are having problems, check that the folder name is "CustomScripts".  It needs to be created the first time (default path: C:\AutoCAD Plant 3D 2012 Content\CPak Common\CustomScripts).

The developer documentation and expertise necessary to create PY parametric scripts are beyond the scope of the Catalog Builder Beta.  But if the plantregistercustomscripts command does not work, possibly you can attach your PY.

AP3D parametric shapes are available in compiled form, but not PY.  You can select the compiled shapes in the Part Family View for parametric components.  Specifically for square piping shape, that is not currently available.

Please note that that Catalog Builder on AutoCAD Plant Exchange has been updated to include custom python script example files and documentation updates.

 

You can find the updated Catalog Builder here:
