I’m new to SW routing and I’m trying to include length of my pipes in item description of BOM eg. “Pipe, 40 NB Sch 40, 200 LG”. I know that I could have separate column with SWPipeLength property. However, I don’t want to have extra column in BOM just for the length. Is it somehow possible to link SWPipeLength property to description?
I think one way to link pipe length to description is to have Length@Extrude in my pipe design table which would give me different lengths for different configurations. This lengths could be then linked to Description. However I was told not to include Length@Extrude in the pipe Design Table.
Another issue I have is that sometimes a tube between 2 fittings is broken up into a few shorter segments instead of one long tube. I notice this happens when SW complains about bend radius being smaller than the one specified in the route properties even the bend radii are exactly as specified for that route. I don’t use flexible tubing.
Any advice would be appreciated.
