How is your weldolet designed, as in did you use the one provided by SW and modified to your needs or did you make you from scratch?
The reason for the question is that if it's based upon the one provided by SW then the Cpoint in question while be automatically placed in function of the size of the pipe run and the length of the weldolet it self.
Yes I have modified SW original part. When I drag and drop the weldolet it sizes correctly. It just doesn't give me that dimension. For example when inserting a valve after a flange it will automatically give me a dimension from the r-point of the valve to the c-point (see below image). This is what I want for my weldolet. (purely so I can have a fully defined route sketch)
I guess I don't understand your issue.
When I drop in a weldement fitting then I have to give it the dimension necessary to determine how far down the pipe run the branch has to be. Once I've done that the resulting route is fulling defined.
Yes, the start point of the pipe on the branch as well as that branch it's end point are still blue but the line itself is black.
Do I have the dimension of the start point (= Cpoint of the weldement) no but I don't need it either.
The dimensions of the fitting used as a weldolet is neither here nor there, I would think. If the weldolet's dimensions are somewhat off by the one used theoretically then it would be taken care of by the 'make length' on the connecting branching pipe by means of a field weld.
Have a nice one
Yes! This is what I'm talking about! the line is black but that one point is still blue... this must be how it is meant to be.
Thank you for your help Peter!
