CADWorx Tip: Adding Orifice Taps

Enhanced catalog data is often overlooked as providing purely a different visual representation.

With the Orifice Tap information added to the catalog data table

New "+" grips become available that were previously not visible. These are available in regular 3D solids representation mode also.

The entire flange can either be rotated to correctly position the orifice tap placement, or the appropriate fittings can be applied to the tap locations.
