Measure/Bore

Specifies the units tied to this specification. You cannot edit this property.

Size Table Name

Specifies the current size table being used by the specification. You can only edit this property in the catalog.

DBCode Table Name

Specifies the name of the database code table from the base catalog.

Thickness Table Name

Specifies the current thickness table being used by the specification. To update this value with available or newly created thickness tables, click the name of the first table, and then select the new table from the list. For more information, see Thickness Table.

Material Table Name

Specifies the current material table being used by the specification. To update this value with available or newly created material tables, click the name of the first table, and select the new table from the list. For more information, see Material Table.

Bolt Diameter Table Name

Specifies the current bolt diameter table assigned to the specification. To update this value with available or newly created bolt diameter tables, click the name or the blank space, and then select a table from the list. For more information, see Bolt Diameter Table.

Bolt Length Table Name

Specifies the current bolt length table assigned to the specification. To update this value with available or newly created bolt length tables, click the name or the blank space, and then select a table from the list. For more information, see Bolt Length Table.

End Prep Table Name

Specifies the current end prep table assigned to the specification. To update this value with available or newly created end prep tables, click the name or the blank space, and then select a table from the list. For more information, see End Prep Table.

Weight Factor

Specifies the weight of the component. You can edit this property.

Component Class

Specifies the classification of the components in the specification.

Temperature Rating

Specifies the temperature rating a component can handle.

Pressure Rating

Specifies the pressure rating a component can handle.

Layer Name

Specifies the numerical value of the layer spec.

CAD Color Index [0-255]

Specifies the color appearance of the components for this specification. Select 0 - ByLayer, 1 - Red, 2 - Yellow, 3 - Green, 4 - Cyan, 5 - Blue, 6 - Magenta, 7 - White/Black, from the list or type 0 through 255 to specify other colors.

Long Desc Format Setup

Specifies the appearance of the long description attached to the components.

Short Desc Format Setup

Specifies the appearance of the short description format attached to the components.

Tag Format Setup

Specifies the appearance of the tag format attached to the components.

Part Number Format Setup

Specifies the appearance of the part number attached to the components.

For more on the <Description Type> Format Setups, see Description Format Dialog Boxes.

Limit Spec Size Range To

Specifies the size limit for components within this specification. This can be edited. You must select newly added sizes in the Limit Spec Size Range To list. Otherwise, the software does not display the sizes in the Size Range list on the New and Edit Component Pane.

Material Assignment Setup

Specifies material numbers for specific components. For more information, see Material Assignment Setup.

Schedule Assignment Setup

Specifies the schedule values for specific sizes based on the schedule table. For more information, see Schedule Assignment Setup.

Default Flange Type

Specifies the default flange type for the specification. You can edit this property.

Reducing Component Size Selection

Specifies the reduction size for displaying reducing components in the Spec View and Component List. There are three options:

  • Use Reduction Size

Uses the reduction size for the component when selecting from the Spec View palette or routing with Component List. For example, if you set Main to 2 and Reduction to 1 in the Spec View palette, and your concentric reducer only has 2, 4, and 6 as the available main sizes in the project, then when you set Use Reduction Size, that component does not display in Spec View or Component List. If you specify a 1-inch concentric reducer, then the concentric reducer displays.

  • Use Main Size

Uses the main size for the component when selecting from the Spec View palette or routing with Component List. For example, if you set Main to 2 and Reduction to 1 in the Spec View palette, and your reducer has 2, 4, and 6 as the available main sizes in the project, then when you set Use Main Size, that component displays in Spec View or Component List.

  • Use Larger Wall Thickness

Works only with component insertion from the command line or toolbar based on the Main size selection in the Spec View palette. For example, if you have three concentric reducer default components of varying schedule, the CONC command inserts the concentric reducer component with the thickest wall.

Version

Specifies the version of the CADWorx Spec Editor. You cannot edit this property.

Created By

Specifies the person who created the data. You can edit this property.

Edited By

Specifies the person who edited the data. You can edit this property.

Spec Description

Specifies the description of the spec.

Default OTAP SKEY

Specifies the default SKEY that the software uses for OTAPs. This property enables you to standardize the OTAP for isometric notation for the specification. If you do not set a default OTAP SKEY for the specification, then the software takes the SKEY from the project properties setting. You can edit this property.

If you open a project created with CADWorx 2015 SP1 or earlier in CADWorx Spec Editor 2016, the software updates the OTAP SKEY of the specification automatically.

Custom Data

Add custom data to the specification. For more information see, New Field Dialog Box.
