The steps shown in each example should not be taken as the only method available to create models. In addition, the intent of the examples is to present ways to create adequate models of specific piping components for analytic purposes.

When inserting a valve with flanged end connections on both side, the wrong weight is automatically applied to the flanges. example: add a GateF Class 300 valve and tick the insert flanges option the flanges by default are the same weight as the valve.
This is a known issue and has been logged under CAE-TR-10614 Using insert flange on both ends copies the weight of valve to flange and was fixed in AutoPIPE V8i 09.06.00.07 and higher.
