Select the Add New Component icon from the Catalog Editor.
The Add New Component dialog displays.
Select a component type from the EC_ClassName list and click the Create button.
A new record will be added to the table grid in the Catalog Editor.
If the table does not exist in the catalog, then the following operations are performed:
New table is added with necessary structure of fields.
A new record is added and filled with default values.
In the example below, a new table (VALVBW) was created in the catalog for a Plug Valve. (The table did not previously exist in the catalog.) Default values are assigned the record such as the MEAS_UNITS shown below. Values for the remaining fields are to be added as necessary.
Finish up by adding field values for the component record as needed.
Note: You can use the Component Information dialog to assist you in defining specific dimensional values for the component.
