Using Joint Fittings
By default, a joint fitting is not inserted at pipe cut piece location unless you specify it.
Use the Joint Fitting option in the Cut Pipe dialog box to automatically insert a joint fitting at the piece cut location. If more than one joint fitting is appropriate for a particular cut location, you can select a joint fitting from the list of Joint Fittings.
If you choose flange as a joint fitting, the Weld Type options are not enabled.
For Parallel Pipe Cuts
When cutting a set of parallel pipe runs, if the cut on the reference pipe run has a joint fitting, Spec-Driven Piping creates identical cuts on the target pipe runs with a similar joint fitting. To select an appropriate joint fitting for the target pipe run, the reference joint fitting suitable for the size and specification of the target pipe run is used. If a joint fitting with the specified selection name does not exist in the target pipeline's specification, the cut is created without the joint fitting.
For Pipe Cuts at Block Boundary Intersection
When cutting pipelines intersecting with the block boundary a list of all valid fitting selection names for all the selected pipe segments is displayed in the Joint Fitting selection list. You can select any fitting from the list for all the cuts.
However, if the specified fitting selection name is not valid for the pipe specification and size at any of the pipe cut locations, Spec-Driven Piping does not create the cut and displays a warning message. To process such pipe segments, you can again specify a valid fitting selection name.
