The Permissible Pipe Bending Machine rule (the PermissiblePipeBendingMachine sheet in the Pipe Bending Manufacturability Rules.xls workbook) defines which pipe bending machines are available for which piping materials class and NPD size.
Nominal Piping Diameter From (Required)
Enter the lower diameter bound for which the pipe bending machine applies.
Nominal Piping Diameter To (Required)
Enter the upper diameter bound for which the pipe bending machine applies.
Nominal Piping Diameter UOM (Required)
Specify the units of measurement, for example in or mm, for the values in the Nominal Piping Diameter From and Nominal Piping Diameter To columns.
Pipe Bending Machine Name (Required)
Type the bending machine code that you want to allow in the piping material class. The bending machines codes are defined in the Pipe Bending Machine Name column on the PipeBendingMachineData sheet. The sheet is located in the Pipe Bending Manufacturability Rules.xls workbook.
Spec Name (Required)
Type the name of the piping materials class for which you are defining bending machines. The piping materials class that you enter must be defined on the Piping Materials Classes. Be sure that the piping materials class that you specify allows pipe bends.
