I am new to Routing, and new to Solidworks in general, but I have been tasked with creating an extensive routing library for hard piping, mostly butt-weld fittings. I have run into a strange problem with the routing. (I am using 2008 sp.5)
When I start a Route, it allows me to choose which schedule pipe. My pipe file contains all sizes(DN15-600) and schedules(5-80, for stainless steel pipe.), When I add a Reducer, Tee, or routed assembly, the schedule of the new pipe automatically drops down to Schedule 5. I Then have to edit route, select each segment and 'edit route properties'. Can I only have one sch. per pipe size? or is there a way to control this?
I have Specification@CPointx set the schedule in all of my routed fittings. How does this filter the pipe size and schedule? The only relevant variable I have in my pipe file is $prp@Specification, Am I missing something?
I have attached pic of the result of adding a BW reducer.
