The specification for lined pipe components is delivered in the Lined.spc file in the [Product Folder]\Plant\Spec folder. The FLGS column in the flanged component data files controls placement of flanges. A value of 1 places a flange on the first end of the component. 2 places a flange on the second end. 3 places flanges on both ends. 4 places a flange on the branch end of a tee or wye. Other combinations of flanges are based on adding these values. For example, if the flanges are needed on all ends of a tee, use 1 + 2 + 4 = 7.

Rigid Element
Misc toolbar: Rigid Element Command line: ELEMENT Places a CAESAR II element in the drawing. Used with CAESAR II (pipe stress analysis software) when a rigid component is required. This is convenient when using a rigid from the base of a pump to the pump discharge piping, or placing a rigid as a structural member that might be supporting the pipe. When using the CAESAR II bi-directional link or importing a stress input file, rigids can be automatically placed. These rigids are used by the bi-directional link and should not be modified in any manner. They can be moved with a piping system, but they need to remain in their relative location. They are often used when the length of a CAESAR II component does not match the components contained within CADWorx. These elements are represented with a polyline that has pointed ends. Specify where rigid elements display from the LayerByLineNumber (on page 35) configuration setting.
