To Change and Update Material Density
You can change pipe material density in a specification and update the current model with the changes.
1. Locate the Pipe Master Catalog file for the selected pipeline or line stock. The default path for this file is <Creo load directory>/text/piping_data/master_catalog/pipe/. For example, pipe_steel.csv.
2. Open the file in an editor such as Microsoft Excel and change the material density value for the selected pipeline or line stock. Save all changes.
3. Update the model. Click Setup > Update Model. The Update Model dialog box opens.
4. Under Select Assembly, click and select the assembly to which you want to apply the changes.
5. Under Model Information, select the Density check box.
6. Click OK. The Confirm Cancel dialog box opens. Click Yes to confirm the update. The dialog boxes close and Spec-Driven Piping updates the active assembly information. Spec-Driven Piping confirms the update in the Message Area.
7. Regenerate () to apply the changes to the piping model displayed in the graphics window.
8. Verify the changes. Click Analysis > Mass Properties. In the Mass Properties dialog box, select a coordinate system to display the density of the part in the report.
