Just want to confirm with you that your new partfamily is on right class hierarchy? It should be “Olet” class and subclass should be “Weldolet” or “Sockolet”.

 

Please pass your excel sheet or snap shot, I will look into it.

 

Thanks & Regards,

I do not see a subclass area.

I am not using excel, just the AutoCAD Plant 3D Spec Editor 2013

Hi,

 

I have successfully create the saddle. Problem is, it doesn't recognize the flow of the pipe. How can I let it behave like pipe support? Pipe support only one connection point on pipe run, but still recognize the direction of the pipe run. Look at the image.(I like the one on left knows the flow of pipe and insert it like the one on right.)

 

Cheers,

Peggy

No worries. I got it to work now.

 

When create the block, just need to make sure the direction you want to match the pipe is parrallel with X axil. If it is match with X, the pipe run will be correct.

 

Am I right? Or I am just accidently correct? Please confirm.

 

Cheers

Peggy

Hi, John

 

I found it, the subtyle is in the General Properties tab after you created the component. Not when you create the component.

 

Cheers,

Peggy

Hi John,

 

This has been on my list of ToDo things for a while.

We have Clamp-On Victaulic branch connections (Reinforcment Saddles in PE) that behave like an Olet.

Victaulic, PVC and PE Catalogues.

See video link demonstrating placement in 3D model.

Please contact Cadgroup for workflow instruction and/or content.

Contact details on video intro slide.
