Thank you, Sir! We all accept your sane opinion! Really, operating temperature of pump varies quite a lot in various operating scenarios. Just one temperature condition in LDT does not mean otherwise, which many young ones in work share GIG econom

I'm somewhat partial to using PCF (via isometric generation) over directly generating C2 files, as the iso drawings are a useful immediate "sanity check" on what the configuration should be. Aside from connectivity, have to watch pipers getting a "c

ZDAWG, Can you create a service request on SmartSupport and send in your files? If you don't have an account send an email to crm.ppm@hexagon.com. Or go to https://smartsupport1.intergraph.com and create a login. Once you gain access select file SR

Hm, nice approach, but I need coordinates at other components.. I will disable coordinates for support and add Elevation in TAG. But in that case that text will be in Tag box frame. I know that we can split text in second row with $ character, I won

There is but it will affect other coordinate call outs also. Firstly set your coordinate output for supports = true. This is OS:5 if not mistaken. Then in alternative text you can suppress the northing and easting call outs. This will then just give

Is there any way to turn on just elevation for support in isometric?

Hi ZDawg Over the years of trying to get the importing to work from Cadworx into a usable C2 file without having node numbers out of sequence and all over the place, I realised that in the Cadworx model, piping and all components must be absolutely

I haven't done a lot of automatic conversion for the reasons you list. However, I do have some success stories worth mentioning. 1. Lines that go from point a to b without deviation come with higher levels of success. Trunnions and the like are also

Several of my co-workers have begun to get models for C2 exported directly from CADWorx. One common item to all of them so far is the amount of errors that have to be fixed by the engineer in C2. The nodes are in no particular order, bends and tees

I solved it. In piping rules "Apply change data rule" Custom data was checked by default probably. Now with CONVERTFROMPRJDATA I can easily update my model

Hello, I am trying to update existing model with new added custom data list which I created in Spec. Editor. With new components is working but how to add it to the existing one? I tried ChangeSpec, CONVERTFROMPRJDATA, no luck.

Thanks Daniel for that errata. I will use this info for future reference in case I have a constraint to solve both static and dynamic problem at the same time. In my current case I have managed to use a conventional type of restraint to solve both my

Borzki, One "small" errata on my first post: The loading cases should be defined as follow: SUS W+P1 Snubber Active = NO/disabled OPE W+P1+T1 Snubber Active = NO/disabled OPE W+P1+D1+T1+F1 Snubber Active = YES/enabled where D1 are the displacemen

Thanks Daniel & Michael for that info. That's the info I'm looking for. I'm only familiar using snubber in dynamic module. Now I can run high temperature lines with snubber acting only to absorb shock load and not thermal load in static module. Warm

An additional detail: You may define a finite stiffness for the "XSNB", "YSNB" etc. snubber restraint, and in such case the snubber's actual finite stiffness (e.g. "flexibility") will be considered in analysis.

Hi Borzki, You may employ snubbers in Static stress analysis for the basic/main load cases (e.g. those load cases defined by algebraic combination/summation of individual load components - W, T, P, F, WIN, U), by enabling the corresponding "Snubbers

Snubbers work like regular supports, but they only get "turned on" in occasional cases. If you have normal thermal growth combined with occasional cases, you have to add a CNODE to the snubber of an otherwise unused node number, and then apply a dis

Hello CII Users, Can we input in static module the snubber. Means it will only act to absorb shock load and not due to thermal load. Or is it in dynamic module only? Warm Regards,

The problem with using the TAG or Component Attribute-3 is that if you have valves or other components with identical long descriptions and NB, but different tag values then Isogen will not seperate the tags out, but will accumulate the valves and pu
