Custom Part Problems

503 Views, 3 Replies

Since the 2012 version is almost here. I re-installed the autocad Plant 2011 demo version to suggest it to my superiors. Currently we do not use programs of this kind.

One of the things that I should demonstrate is that we will be able to use our blocks library.

To do this I decided to create a metric Project and create a custom part

 

The steps that I followed are:

  • Inserted the block
  • Convert the block using the plantpartconverter command
  • Created the Custom Part using the plantcustompart command
  • Completed the settings
  • Inserted the custom part

 The problem that I have is that I can not connect any other element to the custom part created

See pictures attached.

I followed the steps suggested on the help and I do not find what I am doing wrong.

Could you help?

 

Thank you in advance.

In the window of t'he first picture change mm to inch, and end type to PL. And then use t'he same spec (cs150).
