did you follow the instructions in the readme file.

you also need to replace the DefaultConnectorsConfig.xml

if you did then it may be due to a language version (ill let one of the devs chime in if thats the case)

Ahmed,

 

First you need to be aware of the connection rules defined by Bondstrand like KLF should be connected to KLM ends etc., 

 

KLM and KLF means Key lock male and female joints respectively, and DOM, DOF means Double O ring Male and female joints.

 

As rich mentioned the bondstrand content pack has the "DefaultConnectorsConfig.xml" inside which such rules from bondstrand are predefined for you to start using right away after you download this content pack.

 

Please follow the instruction in the readme file and you should have no problem i guess.

you have to add also those connection in the Endcoding.xml file

 

For this catalog, there are some new Endtypes added as below,

 

DOM - Double O-ring Male

DOMK - Double O-ring Male w/key

DOF - Double O-ring Female

KLF - Key Lock Female

KLM - Key Lock Male

 

You can use the command “PLANTENDCODES” to add these endtypes in AutoCAD Plant3D
