Sloped Fittings Renumber Differently
« on: Dec 12, 2017, 01:47:40 PM »
We are having and issue where sloped fittings are getting different item numbers after being renumbered using the same number for identical parts and ignoring all the fields.
Any ideas as to what might be causing this would be greatly appriciated.

Use the command SHOWMETHEDIFFS to see what the differences are between the 2 items. This should show you a difference in the items.

Thanks for the tip, but we did try that and there is a difference but it is in one of the  things that you can't tell the renumber command to ignore. Is there a way to make the 2 parts in the attachment identify as the same?

You could Isolate that fitting and use the Match Object Properties Paint Brush and select the Item Number.  Its not renumbering, but it will get them all numbered the same.

It's the little things you do that make up the big picture of who you are.

maybe try to lock the angle tolerance of the fitting, and unlock the angle on the joint.
I don't know if this will work, but its worth a try
