The A.50.01 Attribute screen allows you to define the attribute types and attributes for the geometric tables. The attributes are necessary in order to define geometrical objects (object parameter), which are the links between commodity codes and geometric tables for the ident generation. For example, attributes could be NPS, OD, SCHEDULE, WT.
Complete the following steps to generate the attribute types:
In the Attribute Types block, query for GEOM in the Type field. The GEOM type is the only type permitted for generating geometric attributes.
In the Name field in the Attributes block, enter the attributes required for your geometric data. For example, a weld neck flange can be described uniquely by the definition of NPS and SCHEDULE. These attributes must be defined in this menu.
Enter all required values, and save the attributes.
