In OpenPlant Modeler there are set of default specifications for the creation of piping and cable tray models. One such specification database is mCablet.mdb which is used for Cable Tray Nominal Pipe and Fittings. For modelling purposes, there is a requirement to create custom catalogs based on the specification database.This article explains how to convert cable tray specification to catalog.

The spec will be loaded. For components like Pipe or Tee, the count column will be displayed as 0. To define the count, constraint needs to be added. 8. To add constraints, click on Add Classes to Section and select the constraints that needs to be added. 9.After the constraints are added, the count values get updated.10. The mCablet cable tray specification will be converted to catalog.
