How To Create "Rubber Expansion Joints" in my Spec Editor

Hi again to everyone,

 

My Question today is how to create "Rubber Expansion Joints" in my Spec Editor, because.....

 

1.- I draw all 3D models and plantpartconverteD to add as Custom Parts in my catalog.

 

2.- When I click in Create New Component,  I don´t find the Piping Component in any Component Category to add.


3.- Where did you add this important component, if you did?

 

4.- What can I do?

 

Thanks and you can help me.....

I placed it in the category of Coupling. It do not think it matters what Component Category, or Pipiping Component you put it under, the only thing those decide is where it gets placed in a spec file.

the category will also dictate where it lists in the data manager for you valve/component schedules

Thanks so much JRPalmer & Richos69for your quick replay.

 

I see...when I go to create Flowmeters, I will need to do the same as Rubber Expansion Joints.

 

Thanks.
