Notes on combining multiple Routing library files

Article by Rob Greer, CSWP updated September 30, 2010


To speed up the Pipe Routing process or simplify your library, it may help you to combine similar routing parts into one file.  You can make configurations with different Material Properties for example.  Just make sure to have the configuration specific routing property “Pipe Identifier” a discreet value for each configuration in the case of the pipe part file.  Also, you can use the “User Specified” Configuration properties option for the part number in the BOM  (See image below).  The BOM part number can also be entered into the Design Table if the part has one.
