 We need to model the Wafer type valve without gaskets as the wafer type valve is supplied along with lining (no need of gasket required in this condition), how to do it in Plant3d.

you have to add the endtype...type PLANTENDCODES, you will be able to add new endtypes

once you have added it, then you go to project props and set up the joint type

your simple joints WaferFlanged and WaferWafer are conflicting, you havent actualy defined a joint for a flange to connect to a wafer.

your WaferFlanged joint should have 'End 1' as WFL and 'End 2' as FL

But in this case there will be two bolt connections instead of the one which is the reality in case of wafer type connections. 

I have the exact same problem but can not really solve it this way.

 

Can you give me the method how to set a connection which "requests" wafer type bolts from the database?
