There are config.pro settings that need to be setup in order for an organization to fully and easily take advantage to the power of Spec-Driven Piping. They are:


Configuration SettingDescriptionDefault Value
pipeline_start_assembly_name
Sets the default pipeline start assembly name.pipeline_start.asm
piping_design_method
Sets the current Piping design method for pipeline modeling.
user_driven
pipeline_solid_start_part_nameSets the default pipeline solid start part name.
pipeline_solid_start.prt

display_thick_insulation
Yes - Display insulation in thick mode. No - Display insulation in centerline mode. This option can be overridden by the Thick insulation option in the Model Display dialog box.
yes
display_thick_pipes
Yes - Display pipes in thick mode. No - Display pipes in centerline mode. This option can be overridden by the Thick pipes option in the Model Display dialog box.
no

Once your spec-driven piping text files are downloaded to a network location, you can use the Diagnostics tab of the Sync Piping Data or Select Spec Project GUIs of RsysConfig (shown below) to point your configuration to that directory. RsysConfig will automatically set 9 of the 10 bolded configuration settings based on that directory location. You can copy the location paths for these 9 settings into your organization's config.pro using Creo's Configuration Manager.

The one configuration setting most organizations have to manually path to is piping_fitt_library_dir, organization's usually have this points to the Windchill directory where their fittings are located.
