When we use connectors that are a housing with their terminals sold separately, we need to track those two items separately in inventory. Other than manually entering additional lines in my BOM list in the drawing, I can't figure out a good way to include my contacts as separate line items. Does anyone else have a good system for including the contacts for each connector in their BOM?

need help with routing... Once you have begun a route at a point, how then do you add a fitting on the starting point later? when i try to add one it says there is already one there when there isnt.

I've run into this issue a few times while creating tubing assemblies that consist of several different tube parts. While in sketch mode editing the tube route, the tubing run shows up, as seen below.

I have a problem with routing wizard in 2016. I have a fitting open in SW and open the routing wizard from SW. When I have tilled in what it is for kind of part and click "next" I I get an dialog that says that I have to have a part open in SW. I already have a part open so why is this dialog popping up?

I have tubing route that has its filter sketch shifted from where it should be, it is a straight section of thin wall tubing, even thought the route sketch is correct All other Routes in model fine. I have deleted it and remade it but for some reason it is still to long ! Any Ideas where i'm going wrong? First picture and second picture shows the top end is to long, the third picture shows when i'm routing that it is the correct length.

I have updated to 2017 SP3 and now my routing components are not aligning correctly. When i drop in a valve the vertical axis is not aligning with the vertical axis of the route sub assembly as it should. It drops the fitting partially rotated about 10 degrees. Anyone else having this issue??

I have a question pertaining to flattening a cable route. So I have a cable with a back shell and connector on each end. One back shell is straight the other is 90 degrees. So I have connection points on the connectors obviously in order to make my route.

I have a problem with the Route property in Solidworks electrical 3D, the Size/Gauge doesn't display on BOM when I prepare the route for a flattened drawing (Flatten Route). 1-I make a simple scheme in Solidworks electrical 2D [figure 1]

2017 routing. I can get the routing path to work how ever it doesn't matter what size tube I tell it all it produces is a spline. Any Ideas?

Below you'll see the same bit of routing and the same BOM. Between the two BOM's I don't alter a thing except for the option to 'group pipes or tubes with the same diameter and schedule'. If you make the total of all SDR11 pipes mentioned then : 4209+1157+210+418+822+1810+180+47+652+177+3+4626+5888 = 20199 mm

I am currently somewhat stuck with what I think is an issue with my current setup. I have a case which contains two different parts (both are defined as routing parts through the wizard and have the appropriate connection points). Now I would like to create an assembly of those three parts.

We provide the .pcf output capability to write out a .pcf file for piping isometrics and other applications. Theis data can then be used by other applications such as for piping isometrics, pipe design analysis. We have done a lot to improve our .pcf output over the last few releases an continue to do so.

is it possible to edit routing design table? I have tried, but could not edit that table. You have to clarify what you are trying to do and where you are trying to do it.

I have been trying to find a way to make my route sketch dimensions and drawing dimensions in inches but then have the length of pipes in feet in the BOM. I was hoping to have this length appear in the quantity column of the BOM. Does anyone have suggestions on how to do this? I have played around with changing the document units in the for the pipe files themselves, the units for the pipe assembly, and the units for the parent assembly that route is in but am still having issues.

I have a question about routing, I could be doing this wrong however every time I make a model with the piping I end up with 2 assembly files, the first one is usually a flange and the routing sub assembly and the second assembly is the routing sub assembly. Now I know you can make a virtual component which saves the file internally which eliminates the need for having two assembly files however the help mentions :

When I use Flatten route after I routed the wires in a 3D model, the flatten route is a mess. Is this a known issue in Solidworks? Or do I something wrong?

At our company, we like to give each pipe segment it's own unique part number/name. As you know with pipe routing files, every time a new length is introduced, a new pipe configuration is created. Any time I am done with that particular pipe assembly, I'll need to go into each pipe segment, remove unneeded configurations and set the remaining one to "Document Name" (under Bill of Materials Options) so it fits our naming convention. I've gotten fairly fast at doing this through repetition, but it

The more I'm trying to use FOF dimensioning the more I seem to notice that it has limitations. Namely in my experience you'll see things going awry if you happen to use a dimension from one face of flange to another. The problem isn't with that dimension but if however later in the route you for instance want to remove pipe between the second flange and an elbow chances seem to be bigger that you'll get overdefined or other errors.

I am trying to penetrate pipes perpendicular on a larger one but the penetrate command is not enabled to be used at that intersection point. Is there any solution for that ?
