CADWorx Spec Editor

  1. Select a specification from Project Specs.

  2. Select Material Assignment Setup in the Properties window, and then click the Material Assignment ellipsis.

    The Material Assignment dialog box displays.

  3. Select a component, such as Caps.

  4. Click Add new item . You can repeat this step as necessary.

    A new component material assignment setup displays.

  5. Double-click the new component material assignment setup.

  6. In the Assign Material list, select a new material in the right column from the list that displays for each size. Material numbers in this list are based on industry standards. To access detailed information on a material number in the Assign Material list, open the Base Catalog Data, and then open the Material Table.

    Use the Size Filter sliders to quickly display the sizes you need to change.

  7. Click OK.

  8. In the Main Spec List View, expand a component list, such as Caps, and then select a component, such as Caps Buttweld, to assign a material.

  9. Select the Material list in the Edit component pane, and then select Use Specification Material or <Component>_1.

    • When you select Use Specification Material and want the software to read from the Component Group node, you cannot have any other material assignments in the Component Type node. To force the software to read the material from the Component Group folder, select <Component>_1.

    • You can rename the component material assignment setups. However, if you rename the material setup, then you must remember the name of the component material assignment setup and select it in step 9.

      The software reads the Material Assignment set for the size in the Material Assignment Details. For example, if you set the material of the 2.0000 inch size to ASTM A105 in the Cap_1 folder of the Material Assignment dialog box, and then set the component material of the Cap Buttweld to Cap_1, the 2-inch Cap Buttweld material would be ASTM A105. In addition, if you set the material of the 4.0000 inch size to ASTM A193-B7, then the 4-inch Cap Buttweld material would be ASTM A193-B7.
