BOM - Line stock and pipe length

Hello!



I've designed piping system in Pro/PIPING module with various types of pipes (various ODs and thickness).



Now I have to create a drawing with BOM on it. One of the parameters is also DIM, basic dimension of parts included in assembly.



I would like to assign three basic parameters to pipe parameter DIM, DIA, THICK and LENGTH (diameter, thickness and length). I could create report parameter in repeat region, however I have also other kinds of parts.



So, I guess this should be done by relation or analysis. But how to extract length, diameter and thickness to one joined parameter, named DIM.



Anyone?



Regards,

Hey skraba,


Hope this is what you are looking for:


LENGTH= LENGTH:FID_LENGTH ** for an evaluate feature
DIM = ITOS(THICKNESS) + " x " + ITOS(DIAMETER) + " x " + ITOS(LENGTH)


where thickness is a parameter


wherediameter is a parameter


Length is a parameter with the value from an evaluate feature


ITOS = integer to string


The "x" gives you the "x" in your field eg. 6.45 x 12 x 300
