I'm sorry if this has already been asked, but I was unable to find anything apart from AutoPLANT answers on Flexible hoses.
In OpenPlant Modeler I have been unsuccessful in placing a flexible hose where the hose has read the Piping Spec. Each time I attempt to place a hose the following is shown in the Message Center - "No component found with initial selection from specs"
Looking at the schema, I can't see any difference between a Pipe and Flexible hose when it comes to the spec.
Can you supply an example spec with a flexible hose that works with OPM and OPIM.
Please download the spec file from below link.
Let me know if it works for you.
You just need to add Flexible Hose in your spec which has FL as end conditions. Please see below snapshot of the spec. Highlighted the fields which I modified.
Below is the snapshot from the model.
Below is the snapshot from isometric drawing:
Hope this helps!
