Bolt commodity codes are defined by setting the Bolt Commodity Code option on the Material Takeoff Options form in the Project Administrator in one of two ways:

  • If the toggle is set to Piping Job Spec, the Piping Component Data is used to generate the commodity codes.

  • If it is set to Bolt Commodity Code Table, and if you have created a Bolt Commodity Code Table as specified in the PDS Reference Data Manager Reference Guide and compiled it, the user-defined Bolt Commodity Code Table is used to generate 24-character commodity codes.

Although this table uses only the bolt diameter and low bolt length data as input, the correct look-up based on bolt diameter and calculated bolt length is performed.
