Hi all,

What is best practice in filling EF005431 for shapes other than knee/bend?
In example, should we maintain 'NA' or '0' for straight fittings?

Thanks very much!

Hi Nico, since you mention NA, I assume you are well aware how to treat features that are not applicable for a certain product. If not, see this topic https://community.etim-international.com/conversations/how-to-treat-or-indicate-irrelevant-features. 

In your specific example I understand your doubt, but I would still use NA, it has no angle so the feature is not applicable. I can imagine that it is tempting to use 0 degrees, which by the way technically would be wrong, since a straight fitting would be 180°? No one looking for a straight fitting should search on bend angle.

Thanks for clarification. We internally discussed it and NA was getting most support, too.
We also discussed the 0 vs 180 degrees for a straight, but no need to go into details, since we agree on NA being first-best anyway. ;)
