I am not sure how to treat pipe bridges (see attached). Surely EC003024, but I am lacking of an appropriate EV to define the shape, I believe.

A pipe bridge is a bend which is used to cross parallel pipes or other obstacles.

That's different from an Offbend (S-bend) (EV020061).
And even if the shape is defined as Other (EV000154), I am still lacking of a possibility to store what we call the height (H1).
Any ideas? Thanks very much!

Hi Nico, are you sure offset is not the right choice? As far as I know an offset is not necessarily an s-bend. In the attached screenshot from 2BA you see colleagues classifying similar bends as offset.

Thank you, Marc. Yes, it's an offset. Still, in my eyes the features of EC003024 are insufficient to describe its geometry.
I find "H" (see attached drawing) relevant, but I have no clue where to store it.

Hi Nico, that is the downside of more general classes. It could be solved by adding a feature EF020397: Offset, but then that would only be relevant for very few products assigned to this class. And then it still if questionable if everyone unambiguously understands that your H measure is meant. For the geometry, ETIM MC Modelling Classes are the future. I guess you know what ETIM MC is?

I have today added some guidance for Shape under reference products for EC003024 in ETIM CMT.
