When valve is placed on Pipe-Run, which uses required specification, it will inherit spec data from Pipe-Run speciation. Later some records in Spec are modified and user would like to update the valves with modified data. This article will explain the methods to update the valves with modified records from specification.
For example, in below image, Ball Valve is placed in drawing whose manufacturer is JAM and later on the manufacturer is changed to Bentley and this has to be updated in drawing.
The Refresh from Spec Record Data option lets the user update existing valves in a drawing with updated information from the spec. It displays in the pop up menu when a valve placed from the spec is selected.
This option can be used for a mass selection of components or on a per component basis. The command will only refresh components in the selection which were actually placed from the spec.
Note that the component had to have been placed from a spec for the menu option to display.
To update existing valves, there are two methods:
Select each valve manually by using CTRL key in keyboard. Once all valves are selected, right click and select “Refresh from record data”.
Now, Check manufacturer name in element info dialog.
If there are number of valves and it is not possible to select each valve manually using CTRL key then follow below mentioned steps.
