Faster flanged valve insertion

Post by VicenteLG »

Hi,

How can we insert a flanged valve into the pipeline with the pipe flanges inserted at once?. during model creation we need to insert flanged ASME valves but can't find how to speed the process in 4.84 R1 START-PROF.

Thank you in advance,

First way:

Add nodes on the valve ends

add additional nodes near the valve

the second way is just to specify the valve length and weight including all 4 flanges. It is simpler
