Pipe length

Hello!



Is there a way to extract pipe length or stock length? I would need this parameter for BOM?

In the repeat region, enter this report symbol:

asm.mbr.pipe.segment.len.center

or

asm.mbr.pipe.segment.len.pre_cut

So technically I have to have two repeat regions on my drawing, since the field for the part dimensions appears only once in a row.



Or is there option to show either user-defined parameter, parameter asm.mbr.pipe.segment.len.center

or parameter asm.mbr.pipe.segment.len.pre_cut, depending on null value of either one?



Regards,

My understanding is center and pre_cut are both filled out automatically when you create a pipe segment. It is up to you to decide if your table will show final lengths or pre-cut lengths.



You can filter the column to show a user defined parameter if it has a value. Just use report relations. If you are using Wildfire, you don't have to show columns in the table for each parameter used report relations. Earlier versions have this limitation.
