I download the structural steel section content pack for australia. This is the file "Structural Catalog.acat"
My question is, how I add this file to the autocad plant 3d software, to use it?
De donde eres Oscar? Te puedo ayudar. Tienes que copiar el fichero en la carpeta Common en el sitio donde tienes todos los catálogos, por defecto C/AutoCAD Plant3D Content Folder
Hi, i solve that problem thanks.
I would like if you can tell me, because I added a new content pack with piping and fitting, and one of them has not the size I want for example DI class 150 start on 350 diam, and I want from 50 diam up, can you tell me if I can resize one of them to the size I want for example 350 diam to 100 diam. I know I can do it but I dont know where I have to go, I tryed but I only see pictures of the flanges for example. I appreciate if you can tell me where I have to go into the autocad Plant 3d softwere to change it?
I am living in sydney, australia and you?
I give you my email address if you have some answer, is quicker that this site
There is a readme file associated with each of the content packs that explains where to place the file.
You are correct in placing the catalog in the \Common\ folder, but you need to make a Spec from it. What you downloaded was the Catalog. A Specification is a specific filter of parts from a catalog. A process engineer or the client will be able to tell you whats in the spec to be used on your particular project.
Once you have made the spec, you then put that spec in the \Specs\ folder of your project, then anyone working on the project will be able to see it
Did you manage to resolve the issues of finding the PE pipes in Spec Editor? I am having exactly the same problem I think, I downloaded the Content Pack into the CPak Common folder, but cannot find the catalogue from which to make a spec. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Keith.
