Once all the desired settings are in place, pressing OK will accept this options.

Auth with social network: Once piping is fully loaded, go to the Assembly Manager and select the new Assembly. Select the desired one and the program will next request the location for this nozzle on the equipment. With a Sphere, it can be a bit difficult to decide which direction is best. One the left side is a view of the object in wireframe and on the right is a view of it rendered.

In this case, instead of the “Insert in 3D”, the option “Centerline Routers” is displayed with to available options.

The tool will also keep track of what components have been placed, allowing users to quickly see what has and hasn’t been done on a job. This tool allows for users to change a lines size or spec to a new one. To locate which specs are needed for this module, either do a search on Specs or Specifications.

This can be a autoplang way of checking if your components are odd angles are correctly aligned. If the icon appears to have wutoplant box around it, then tutoriak tool is turned on and the dialog will be displayed. The user can autoplaant the Bend here and zoom into were it will be placed by hitting the Center on Intersection. This allows users to check settings quickly and use the features faster without having to go to the pull down menu. After this is done, the program will go back into the dialog and more options will become available.

Tag – defined in the first step Group ID – automatically be generated when the Equipment is created Description – the user can give the equipment any description desired here Length – the length or height of the equipment, grayed out until the Location, Direction and Orientation are set Radius – the radius of the equipment, also grayed out until the Location, Direction and Orientation are set Location point – this is the base point of the equipment Direction Point – this tells the program which way the equipment is going Orientation Point – decides the orientation of the tank Now to setup each point, start with the Location Point, then do the Direction Point and finally the Orientation Point.


This is were the Advanced Tap Port Method would come into play. When selecting the components here, the UnRebuild button will become available. Once all the components are selected, press Enter to end the select. If the component is selected in the Dismantled Components list, it will change slightly in the model space to show that it is selected and were it is. After setting the tag up, we will then see the following dialog – As you can see, all the options except for “Select Entities” and “Cancel” are grayed out.

After all of this is set, the program will place in the equipment primitive. Below is a display of what the AutoCAD Object currently looks like – One the left side is a view of the object in wireframe and on the right is a view of it rendered. This will first request a Tag for the new Equipment, we will call this one ST The information provided by this feature is similar to the information found in the Icon’s Properties dialog.

Once loaded, the user should see the 2D Browser open up, similar to the image below. Sometimes, a line will be drawing in one size and later on, the user will find that it needs to be done in a different size. It also allows the user to view information about each module so that they can learn more about it.

Usually the Nozzle does update, but it has been seen were the 2D Browser displays that this has not happened like the image below – This can be a bit of a pain to fix because the program believes that the nozzle doesn’t have all the correct information when it does between the two tools. What AutoPipe does is route pipe between existing components, such as the flanges and elbows in this example.

What is Assembly Manager? Unloading the module will remove this module from the pull down menus, but any components placed with this module will remain.

If you exit out of the drawing and reenter it, the tag information does get updated properly, but the icons will continue to display that the information is incorrect.

It is usually quicker to just reload the model. Another section to know about is the Insertion Mode. If tutoriql valve was rebuilt first, it may have ended up in the correct location. Also notice that the selected components will change color in the model to a grayish dashed line.


There is a few times were this information will not show updated in the 2D Browser. Another way to create custom equipment would be to use the Equipment Primitives and Associative Primitives. Once this is done, the “Insert Assembly” dialog will appear. The program will go through a number of these options to determine what is best tutirial for this particular placement of the Assembly.

To load a module, just select the module from the Available Modules list, pick the desired option, and then hit either OK or Apply. Sometimes, a dialog called “Bentley AutoFit Resolver” will appear that looks similar to this. Just select the desired direction and press Enter when done.

This can be a bit confusing since the 2D Browser will show the new tag and if the drafter doesn’t know which tag was changed, they will need to either know the original tags name and which one is missing or go through each component.

They are very similar to one another autollant how they look and work.

What these two options do is allow users to build equipment from primitive objects, similar to AutoCAD’s 3D shapes. Another way to fix this would be to run the Consistency Checker in the 2D Browser to locate what tags changed and then manually change the components Tags to match to new ones.

Compares 2d data with 3d data Creates reports that show aitoplant inconsistencies in data Checks across the entire project Same tool that can be run inside the drawing in the 2d Browse Allows viewing of autopkant in the drawings 2d and 3d. Basic Tap Port Vs. There are several ways that one can start with this process. Now, we can also place more primitives on this equipment, such as a Head on the top. Now to make the change autoplaant Size 6 to Size 4.

Published by Jeffrey Baker Modified over 3 years ago.

The first step in the creation process is to select all the components that will make up the Assembly. Next, the program needs to determine how this component will look in 3d space and will prompt the components properties.
