Specifies the valves properties. To view the properties:

  1. Click the plus (+) sign next to Valves to expand the category.

  2. Click a plus (+) sign next to a valve component.

  3. Click the actual data table.

Some of the components do not have all properties. If a property is not listed for a component, then that component does not use the property. If the property is common to all components, you can find the information on that property in Common Component Properties.

Default Connection Settings

Apply same end type to all ends

Applies the same end type connection, such as Buttweld (BW), to all ends when set to True. When set to False, the software uses more than one end type connection.

Start

Specifies the start connection associated with the component.

End

Specifies the end connection associated with the component.

Branch1

Specifies the first branch connection associated with the component.

Required

MAINSIZE - Main Size

Specifies the main sizes for the component.

REDSIZE - Reduction Size

Specifies the reduction sizes for the component. The reduction property is only available on reducing components.

SUBDIRECTORY - Sub Directory

Specifies the location of the graphics overlay folder. You can save in any folder location as needed.

You must type the entire path of the local or network folder location in the SUBDIRECTORY value. For example, type Z:\[Name of user shape folder] in the SUBDIRECTORY value for a local location. For a network location, type \\[Network Name]\[Name of drawing folder].

DWGNAME - Drawing File Name

Specifies the name of the graphic overlay drawing.

HUBOD - Hub Outside Diameter

Specifies the diameter value for the component.

ODIN - Outside Diameter Inlet

Specifies the outside diameter of the inlet.

SQ - Square Dimension

Specifies the square dimensions of the valve.

LEN - Length

Specifies the lengths for the component.

OAL - Overall length

Specifies the overall length of the component.

ENDPORT - End to port outlet

Specifies the distance from the end to the port outlet.

CENFEMALE - Center to Female End

Specifies the distance from the center to the female end.

CPRES - Center to pressure end

Specifies the distance from the center to the pressure end.

ODPRES - Outside Diameter Pressure End

Specifies the outside diameter of the pressure end.

CREL - Center to relief end

Specifies the distance from the center to the relief end.

ODREL - Outside Diameter Relief End

Specifies the outside diameter of the relief end.

CMAIN - Center to End 1

Specifies the distance from the center to the main end.

CEND - Center to End 2

Specifies the distance from the center to the end end.

CBRH - Center to Branch End

Specifies the distance from the center to the branch end.

WEIGHT - Weight

Specifies the weight for the component.

ROTATION_X_AXIS - Drawing Rotation X Axis

Specifies the angle of the valve graphic overlay drawing.

FLIP_Y_AXIS - Flip Component Y Axis

Flips the y-axis of the component.

  • 0 =

DISABLE_TOPWORK

Turns the topworks on and off.

  • 0 = Topworks on.

  • 1 = Topworks off.

ETS - Bitwise End Type Placement Control

Specifies the value for the placement control. The software calculates placement control using the end type number for each port. For more information, see Common Component Properties.

USER_PART_NUMBER - User Part Number

Enables you to specify unique part numbers for each individual component. To insert the USER_PART_NUMBER field, right-click the data table, and then select Add User Part Number Column. You can also accomplish this by double-clicking Custom Data in the Properties pane and creating the USER_PART_NUMBER field exactly as it appears here. If you do not need the USER_PART_NUMBER column, click Cancel.

Custom Data

Enables you to input fields using the New Field Dialog Box. You can access the custom data fields in CADWorx Plant through the Component Edit dialog box. For more information, see Component Custom Data Dialog Box and Local Edit in the CADWorx Plant Users Guide.

Picture Description

Displays an image of the component.

Listed below are the types of components available for selection in the table. Images are provided when available.

For custom pipe supports, user shapes, and custom topworks, the Picture Description displays Image Path. The software allows you to browse for a .png or .gif drawing, and then displays the drawing below the Image Path under Picture Description.
