I have created pipe and elbow families with a lot of different materials in the table. The tables look something like this:
pipe/elbow 1/2"-10" with material A ; pipe/elbow 1/2"-10" with material B; etc.
The problem is the following:
When I create a new piping style I don't know how to choose the material. There's an option to choose a material and then press the filter button. But this only shows pipe/elbow families that have this material in them. This does not select the material. Because when I create a pipe run with the selected pipe and elbow it always shows the first material in the family table, material A.
this is a pretty big problem for us. I don't want to create all separate pipe and elbow families for each material. A colleague contacted our software supplier and they told us that the only option is to create separate families.
I hope someone of you has a better solution for this.
Thanks in advance for your replies.
