It may at times become necessary to add insulation only to certain components. For instance, a design may require that only Pipe be insulated, whereas valves, instruments etc. would not require insulation. Rather then constantly toggle the component preference on and off, it can be easily accomplished via a Component Update command for a selection of Models in the Project. This article focuses on the steps to accomplish this.
**Note, the steps can be used to update any field designated as updateable in Project Administrator. Please see this article for the steps to make a component data field updateable.**
Since we are only modifying the properties of specific components, we need to somehow filter down for our specific component set. In this example, the Advanced Selection dialog is used to select Pipe only by using its Class name.
In the Update Component Dialog, switch to the Component Properties tab and select the INSTHICK property. Use the Edit box below to update the INSTHICK value for all Pipe as seen below:
