Problems with Stub Flanges and Collars

Stub Flanges: In the attached sample I have 2 pipes joined by stub flanges, this works well in the model until I go to produce an Isometric. The resulting Isometric is in 3 pieces and the Isometric with the stub flanges only shows 2 welds and does not list the stub flange in the material list. I would like the stub flanges and lap flanges to appear in the material list as a separate items.

 

The End type for the Pipe is PL PL

The End type for the stub flange is LAP PL with an SKEY FLSE

The End type for the Lap Flange is FL LAP with a SKEY FLFL

 

Collars: Other pipework uses collars on the end of the pipe and bends with a lap a flange behind it. Once again this models correctly but the resulting Isometric does not show any flanges where the collar and lap flange are located. End types and SKEY’s are similar to above.

 

Thanks for your help.

Found the solution.

 

When I converted the cadWorx stub ends across it set the Iso Symbol Type as LAPJOINT-STUB-END it should have been LAPJOINT-STUBEND
