    Routing Properties Template

    Chuen Coco Chan

      Please Help

      I have already read through :

      forum.solidworks.com/thread/55825

       

      but I am still having issues.

      I am using  Solidworks PDM, and I have created my own copper pipe that got 7 configurations.

      I have already added the copper pipe into the library , everything went fine.

      I have also set the location of my  routing library and routing templates pointing to my pdm vault

      under the routing library location, I have these files:

       

       

      I have gone back into the solidworks default library, copied the routing templates and paste it in my vault, renamed file to " Copper Pipe.asmdot" , and change the location of routing template pointing to my newly copied and renamed templates.

       

      Now I am trying to go into editing the template under Tap Route Properties.

      I have changed my default elbow to a random elbow in the library that does not have "Schedule"  info my pipe does not have Schedule either,

      the elbow does not matter much to me because I only use bends.

      I have then change pipe to my copper pipe.

      When I clicked saved, it asks me to browse for a pipe?

      But I have already selected the pipe.

       

       

      I have tried to clicked Add new and create a new routing templates.

      I did not encounter any error, I can find it when I do routing.

      But each time when I do the routing I need to go to the drop down tap and select it manually.

      Plus the fact that I cannot locate where did the routing templates saved to?

      I need to have a "file" in pdm that I can point to, not only on my computer, but many other computers as well,

      So everyone can point to the same routing templates file in pdm.

       

       

      I have tried many things but none seems to fix this issue, or provide me with other way to get around this problem.

       

       

      My secondary question is how can I set a default bending radius ?

      Currently when i uses the routing template that I created, (which I have selected always use bends)

      I have to manually enter the bend radius.

      Is there a way that I can set a default bend radius for each config of my copper pipe?

      in my pipe properties, i have already set up a property called bending radius, each config would have its own bending radius.

      I there anyway to link this properties?
