importing a PCF from Plant3D

Hi All,

when I import the Autodesk Plant3D PCF file into the Autopipe, the bends are not converted and only shows a straight line.
how can I fix that?

  • Hello All, 

    The user had sent in a PCF file to be evaluated and the following was discovered when looking at all the Bend cards in the file:

      

    Notice that the End point and Center points have identical coordinates. A bend cannot be correctly drawn without 3 distinctive coordinates for the Bend Far point, Near point, and Center point. 

    Recommend that you check your model to be be sure that it is correct and work with technical support of the application creating the PCF file to be sure that bends are being correctly written to the file.
