Rebuilding the Pipe Supports Spec Toolpalette

If you add your own supports to the Plant 3D Pipe Supports Spec, they are automatically added to the Pipe Supports Spec toolpalette and displayed when the dynamic toolpalette is enabled.

  

If you disable the dynamic toolpalette in Plant 3D, however, the Pipe Supports Spec palette disappears and there is no obvious way to rebuild it or include new supports.

The solution is really quite simple. 

  • Temporarily enable the dynamic toolpalette
  • Export the Pipe Supports Spec palette through the Customize Palettes Window
  • Disable the dynamic toolpalette
  • Re-Import the Pipe Supports Spec palette through the Customize Palettes Window
