how do I change cpoint diameter when I start routing with "start at point" - which creates new cpoint within new routing assembly.
However cpoint is grayed. What are my options to change diameter of route created this way?
There is but it's far less convinient.
Try this :
- go in edit route mode
right mouse button on the route and select change route diameter
or select the funciton 'change route diameter' out of the piping ribbon
The panel on the left will open, should open, to show you the 'Change Route'
you should now have the option to re-specify the diameter of the starting pipe by selecting the wanted configuration of the pipe.
This wasn't always possible in the past but it seems to be more sturdy these days.
Have a nice one
Because of the issue that you yourself have run into we never 'start at point'.
When and if something has to change on the starting bit of pipe you run into the issue of having no easy way to alter it.
That is why we always start with either a fitting (flange) if possible and if not then we use a 'dummy' flange. In other words a part that still can help determine the diameter and such but that in itself has close to no width (e.g. 0.2mm) and can easily be set to excluded from BOM.
Starting from a point maybe a valid way when drawing electrical routing but for piping or tubing I would highly advise against it.
Yes I know that...
so basically there is no way to change diameter if I do "start at point" ?
This doesn't work. It only shows diameters that are the same as cpoint diameter.
Does the pipe you use have configs?
Can you post a test assembly, in other words, just an ASM that has a pipe in it started from a point?
You are right. It works. I missed that I thought first box is pipes, however it's elbows.
