Hello, first post here.
I have an issue and looking for help.
I'm trying to import PCF from Cadworx into Caesar II and using non ASME nominal diameter like DN200=219 mm, DN100=108 mm, DN50=57 mm.
But when importing with APCF in CAESAR II program converts diameters into asme like DN200=219.1 mm, DN100=114.3 mm, DN50=60.3 mm.
I checked PCF file and its shows correct diameters from Cadworx.

Example:
MATERIAL-IDENTIFIER 4
ITEM-CODE 5
DESCRIPTION Pipe, 108Xs030
-80
OUTSIDE-DIAMETER 108
RATING 16bar
SCHEDULE SCH9
WALL-THICKNESS 3

Any suggestion how to solve my issue?

I tried to to turn off Nominals in Units.FIL file but it did not help, still converting PCF as if pipe diameters were nominal ASME pipes.

I do not think is possible to solve this. The diameters are directly converted from imperial to SI by multiplying with 25.4. But once you imported the pcf, go to Options then Pipe Diameters and edit globally the desired diameter (e.g. 114.3 to 108) I hope it help.

Regards,
