I think you can try PCF files, CAESAR II reads PCF files. PCF files are produced if you use ISOGEN.

Entiendo que debería buscar los archivos PCF generados por el autoplan y a estos archivos importarlos al caesar.

Gracias por tu ayuda

Hola que tal! (soy otra persona que habla Español)

Aún así... Yo importo el PCF pero no aparece nada en la pantalla. Sigo viendo la misma pantalla azul del programa. El PCF tiene que estar generado de una forma especial? O como lo tengo que ver?

Muchas Gracias!
Saludos.

You ask:

Even so... I import the PCF but nothing appears on my screen. I am still seeing the same application blue screen. Should the PCF be generated in a specific way? What I am supposed to see on screen?

I answer:

Diganos que estas haciendo: (a) importando un PCF de alguno lugar para dentro del CAESAR II, o (b) creando un PCF para el ISOGEN. En cualquier uno de los casos, el programa no deberia presentar para usted una pantalla azul.

Tell us what you are doing: (a) importing a PCF from somewhere into CAESAR II, or (b) creating a PCF for ISOGEN. In any event, the software should not throw up a blue screen.

To Nicolas Ariel,

Our office has had good results importing piping geometry from AutoPlant by using Isogen PCF files. These are not perfect, and if Isogen crashes, then there is nothing for CaesarII to use. If the Isogen dwg is complete, then the PCF file should be usable. Some of the problems Isogen could encounter include connectivity problems of the components. A problem found with long pipe rack lines occurs when the line crosses over multiple models with the result that Isogen re-starts at each model boundary and over-writes the dwg / PCF file with same line file name.

Assuming the PCF file is good, then the CaesarII \Tools\ External Interfaces\ PCF screen will allow you to browse + choose the PCF file. A few clicks to specify other data, click 'OK', and then message 'Conversion COMPLETED' lets you know it was successful. Additional PCFs of the same line can be converted. When all PCFs for the line are done, then click the 'Finished' button. A file with PCF name plus ".C 2" suffix will be in the same folder. Use the CaesarII 'File + Open' to view the stress model geometry. The rigids will probably need to be defined for valve weights, supports defined as shoe, guide, stop, spring, etc. There might be some supports missing in the converted model which need to be added back into the stress model.

Eso de importar los pcf es complicado al menos con válvulas y accesorios (rígidos), depende mucho de las especificaciones de tubería, si son o no similares a las de Caesar, (Cadworx), por otro lado, los gasket y elementos pequeños de igual manera se importan como elementos dentro del programa, en definitiva una dolor de cabeza!!! lo mejor es usar cadworx para rutas rápidas de tubería e insertar los elementos rígidos o cambiosd e ruta en caesar directamente.

Saludos
