I have created a new nozzle in the catalogue with end type 'FL'.
i have then converted a 3d model into a piece of equipment. When i add a nozzle onto it, i select my new nozzle which i just created. This works fine.
But, when i click on the + to route pipe from the nozzle, i get the attached error message.
Does anyone know why this is?

Solved! by phil.cooper. See the answer in context.
ive fixed it!
when i was creating the nozzle on the equipment, i wasnt changing it to mm, it was stayiing on Inches.
So i was trying to connect a DIN flange to an OD nozzle.
It works perfectly now!
Thanks for your help
It looks like that you have a missing flange 4", RTJ facing, PN16 pressure class in the pipe spec.
Or check your flange properties in the flange catalog, something is not matching.
i dont have that flange in my spec. but i dont want or need it.
I dont understand why it is wanting that flange as i have not specified anywhere that the nozzle should join to that flange.
Well, you need a flange,gasket and bolt set to connect to a flanged nozzle.
Otherwise, how do you want to connect a flanged nozzle?
And the flange should match to the nozzle with the properties you set up in the project settings\ piping connection settings.
i have a flange, gasket and bolt set which i have created which all works perfectly.
the flange setting match the nozzle settings in the project settings\ piping connection settings.
but the error message is saying it is trying to connect to a flange which I havtn got and havnt told it to connect to.
Since "Piping connection settings", for FL joints, only have "Pressure class" as required match it seems like it's inserting another Joint of some kind.
Is the "Part use priority", in Spec editor, set correctly?
Otherwise I don't know what's wrong, with the info I've got, i'm afraid.
Tried to put in the pressure class as just 16 and not PN16? Gaskets and fasterners in the catalogs are listed without PN infront. Maybe that can be a problem.
the gaskets and bolt sets i have created have PN16. the flanges work perfectly normally.
Ive found a workaround. If i create the nozzle on the tank. then i insert a flange onto the nozzle, it connects and inserts the gasket and bolt set and then i just click the + on the flange to run the pipe.
so it will work, it just wont insert the flange automatically if i click the + on the nozzle.
