In the menu the component type can be selected. Depending on the specific insert position some of the types can be disabled:

up to 5 impellers in a project

a single volute only

impeller can be added only if the flow direction on the selected position is suitable to the impeller geometry.

 

Please note:

If you add a component on the first position of the project (in flow direction) then the inlet conditions defined in the Global setup are applied for this new component.

After importing existing components, initially the component is disabled in order to preserve the original geometry. After activation the component will be updated and could be modified.
