The specified feature cannot be inserted. The surrounding objects cannot be repositioned as required. (Piping, HVAC, Electrical)

Meaning: There is no room for the inserted feature. This is typically caused by updating parameters from design basis in integrated projects, modifying the reference data, and changing the connected component or parent object properties. The surrounding objects cannot be moved enough to create the necessary space.

Recovery:

  • Update the To Do Record (TDR) in the To Do List to automatically reposition the feature. If the error persists, ensure that overlapping features can shift into the adjacent straight feature.

  • Reposition the feature using Move To on the modify ribbon. If the automatically suggested position is correct, left-click anywhere in the graphic view to adjust the feature.
