Learn how to use the Edit Parts function to further refine the sizes that you add to your spec using the common filters.
- [Instructor] We already know how to use the filters…to select the minimum and maximum part sizes for our spec.…But what if the range of sizes include parts…that are not permitted in our spec?…For example, if that range of one to six inch…pipe contains nonstandard pipes,…such as three and a half or five inch piping,…for this we have the Edit Parts tool.…Which allows us to further refine…the contents of our spec sheet.…So let's go ahead and open our spec.…So we're going to navigate to Desktop,…Exercise Files and 02_05, we're going to Edit Parts,…and we're going to open our LinkedIn spec.…
So, we don't need to have the catalog part for this,…so I'm just going to minimize that…and give us more room in our spec window.…So let's go down to our piping.…So, to look at the parts we that have,…we can either double click that,…or we can use the Edit Parts.…So, look at the filtering here.…We had initially filtered this for one inch to 12 inch.…But you can see there's some nonstandard pipe sizes in here…that we don't want to have available to our designers.…
