SECTION 1

Intergraph CADWorx Catalog and Specification Editor


The CADWorx Catalog and Specification Editor views, edits, and creates specifications and catalog data loaded with CADWorx. The Spec Editor also imports legacy data, and specs from all versions of CADWorx. Your project administrator needs to review and update the catalog (.cat) and project (.prj) file in the Spec Editor before modeling begins. Catalog File - Contains all the size, material, schedule, thickness, end type, category, and component data for all the components in CADWorx. This is a .cat file, stored in the Spec folder, and can only be accessed through the Spec Editor. The catalog file works in conjunction with the project (.prj) file to allow CADWorx to build models.

Fields
SCH - Schedule - Value specifying the schedule of the thickness for components. SCHENCWT - Schedule Enhance Weight - This column specifies the schedule used with the enhanced weight calculation feature. The enhanced weight calculation feature calculates the weights of components based on the AutoCAD solid geometry (volume of hollow enhanced solid multiplied by density of component). Some components when manufactured may have larger wall thickness then the schedule requires. To make the enhanced weight calculation more accurate, the SCHENCWT can be set to a larger wall thickness schedule. The enhanced weight calculation feature is activated anytime the WEIGHT column is 0.0 in a data table. The component drawing mode (2D Double line, 2D Single line, 3D Solid, 3D Enhanced) does NOT have any effect on the weight calculation. The weight calculation is run in background using a temporary 3D enhanced AutoCAD solid when using 2D Double line, 2D Single line, or 3D Solid drawing mode. The following components weight is based on the AutoCAD Solid geometry when the WEIGHT column is 0.0 in the component data table: PIPE SCH thickness value used to create AutoCAD solid geometry ELBOWS SCH thickness value used to create AutoCAD solid geometry O_LETS SCH thickness value used to create AutoCAD solid geometry TEES SCHENCWT thickness value used to create AutoCAD solid geometry CAPS SCHENCWT thickness value used to create AutoCAD solid geometry CROSSES SCHENCWT thickness value used to create AutoCAD solid geometry LATERALS SCHENCWT thickness value used to create AutoCAD solid geometry REDUCERS SCHENCWT thickness value used to create AutoCAD solid geometry FLANGES: Enhanced Data Table Values used to create AutoCAD solid geometry
