The Geometry Type select list (codelist) defines the geometric characteristics and the topology of the piping ports for piping parts. You must specify the correct geometry type so that the software knows how to handle the item when placing it in the model.

This select list is used in the reference data for the Piping task when defining piping instruments and specialty item parts. The list belongs to the REFDAT namespace. You can use this list to map the Component Geometry to Route Feature Type.

You can edit the delivered text of the short or long descriptions as long as you do not change the meaning. Do not change the numeric values of the delivered select list items. You cannot add or delete select list items.
