Fabrication Hanger Rod Diameter information (NOT from ancillary) available in API

Fabrication Hanger Rod Diameter information (NOT from ancillary) available in API

We have an issue where we have hangers that do NOT use an ancillary kit for rod sizes (the rod is explicitly driven by the product entry for the hanger) and we have no way to access the rod diameter via the API.

 

The FabricationRodInfo class gives us things like rod length, position, attached element, and locked with host information, and rod counts, but we have no way of getting the diameter of the rod (which is critical to being able to quantify correctly).

 

On hangers that have an ancillary support kit, this information is gotten from the ancillary.  But ancillary rod sizes are driven by the host pipe, not the hanger size – this is desirable in many cases, but in other cases it is not.

 

We need the ability to read the rod diameter from hangers using the FabricationRodInfo class consistent with the other rod info properties.
