You can do a stretch command around the fittings...yea, remember AutoCAD?!
Every now and then you can still use those commands.
Ahh, the stretch command... That works fairly well. What I was hoping for was a way to select the joint (weld) and move it a specific distance from the other end of the pipe using dynamic input. Basically setting the cut length of the pipe by moving the weld. I can do it the other way though... select the pipe and move the free end to the desired distance from the weld. Not as ideal but will work fine.
Thanks again for all your help!
Here is a little glitch: I ran an ISO with my two pieces of pipe with the "weld" joint... the iso schematic shows and dimensions both pipes but the Bill of Materials combines them as one piece... Hmmmm
At least I'm closer than I was earlier!
Cut list is in the Iso Styles, when you setup the border and the tables.
So yes, the Cut Piece List identifies the pipe correctly. I think I would have to include both the BOM and Cut List on my Isos which is fine... but is there a way to eliminate pipe out of the BOM... that way I don't duplicate material in the list.
I've seen you create a flanged pipe.
What is the procedure for this.
I've have try this, I cannot get this to work.
I still have pipe with no flanged.
Here is my procedure.
1. create new component.
2. populate size parameters.
3. save catalog.
4. add to spec.
Is there anything that I am missing?
Thanks in advance.
