Every now and then we or one of our clients forgets to have some key specs in the project. Mainly because they sometimes get deleted or seem insignificant. Here’s a list of the stock specs that you might end up needing by using certain Plant 3d features.

CustomPartsImperial Required to use the Custom Parts palette (warnings display if not found on metric projects)

PipeSupportSpec Pipe spec used to generate a support tool palette. May be removed if you have a different spec and are using the Spec viewer to insert supports, or if you include your pipe supports in your normal spec.
PlaceHolder Imperial Utilized by various routines (custom parts, PCF to Pipe) requiring placeholder parts. Can be removed on metric projects.

Instrumentation Imperial Spec used to generate a instrument tool palette. May be removed if you have a different spec and are using the Spec viewer to insert instruments, or if you include your instruments in your normal spec.
Instrumentation Metric Spec used to generate a instrument tool palette. May be removed if you have a different spec and are using the Spec viewer to insert instruments, or if you include your instruments in your normal spec.

What happens if you accidentally removed the specs? Luckily, those are still stored in the content folder (unless you deleted them too).
