Pro/piping branch issue

Dear All,

I would like to use the branch functionality in a line to joint 2 segment of a same line.

There is no fittings at this branch point. In the 3D model , the results seems to be Ok,

but when I make an export as PCF for ISO drawing creation, I got a disconnected piping error in Alias.It

splits my line in 2 drawings. Is someone comfortable with the routing and can maybe explain me

the best way to create a branch in a same line ?

In advance thank you for your Help..

Re: Pro/piping branch issue

Guess you have solved this but anyway:

Very often you have to open your pcf file in a texteditor and remove all:

Lines starting with:

END-CONNECTION-EQUIPMENT

incl it's coordinates

or

END-POSITION-NULL

incl it's coordinates

So when you are finished your pcf files only contains:

HEADER

With info

PIPING DATA
