Hi All,

Kind of a newby to Plant and im asking the question on how to add more PVC piping fittings to the, very limited Plastics catalog, that comes with Plant? I need to connect from the suction of a pump to a tank nozzle, but i am not familiar with creating components.

Can anyone help

Unfortunately you cannot do this in AutoCAD Plant 3D 2010, but we are hoping to fix this for a future release.
Currently all that can be modified, added or changed is items that currently exist in the availble catalogs.
The ASME and DIN catalog objects can be copied and dimensionaly modified as well as descriptive and connection information.
The AME catalogs are block based objects the were converted from AutoCAD MEP content. These objects cannot be dimensionaly modified. The discriptive and connection data can be modified.
