WARNING: this new release upgrades Puma5 from any version to 2.95; to avoid any problems during the installation, please make sure that you ask for the new database license by opening a ticket on our support portal before running the upgrade (http://support.cla-it.com/).
Two main improvements have been made to the automatisms generating the component catalogue:
bolts and gaskets generation on the second diameter of a component – you can enable the function through the ‘2nd size joint’ field in the ‘Components’ section of the ‘Piping class’ form (this field is active only for those components having the bolts and gaskets generation enabled). During the ‘Component catalog upgrading’ procedure, for those components having the ‘2nd size joint’ indicator activated, bolts and gaskets will be generated by using the second diameter value (branch);
new ‘Object-Finish’ table in the Object-Finish dictionary – the table has been added to allow the creation of links between gasket-type objects and the ‘finish’ attribute. These links are used only for those gasket-type components that are defined without the ‘finish’ code in the piping classes.
During the ‘Component catalog upgrading’ procedure, for gaskets with no ‘finish’ code, a link is created with the flanged objects by using the ‘finish’ code of the ‘object-finish’ dictionary.
Other improvements refer to the general environment:
project grouping functions – in order to manage the grouping of different projects, new functions have been added. These functions allow the creation of links between different projects of the same database (read the “what’s new” document available for download from the support portal for more details);
filter setting – the ‘filter setting’ management has been added; it is now possible to save all filter fields values of a form into the database. This new function is described in the document named WHAT’S_NEW_PUMA5_02.950.00.00_Detail_EN.pdf, available for download from the support portal.
