To Change and Update Bend Parameters
You can change pipe bend parameters in a specification and update the current model with the changes.
1. Locate the Bend Master Catalog (MCAT) file for the selected pipeline or line stock. The default path for these files is <Creo load directory>/text/piping_data/ master_catalog/bend/. Each Bend file is named for a line stock material type (for example, bend_steel.csv.).
2. Open the file in Microsoft Excel and change the bend parameter 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 Bend Parameters 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. Click to regenerate and apply the changes to the piping model displayed in the graphics window.
8. Verify the changes. Click Design Rules. The Define Design Rules dialog box opens.
9. Do one of the following:
Under By Segment, click and select a pipe segment.
Under By Parameters, select a linestock.
10. Click Edit. The Design Rule Parameters dialog box opens and displays the updated bend parameters.
