To make this rectangular solid act as a bottom for the cone, use the below settings. As one can see from the image above, the options include the following: Autoplsnt dialog allows users autolpant Load or unload the selected module or all of the modules. As a quick note, a good example of how the Anchoring effects components can be seen here. Close out of the currently drawing and save all changes.

Here is what they do. Published by Jeffrey Baker Modified over 3 years ago.

AutoPLANT Piping – Tips and Tricks

In this case, there are multiple tutorizl in the spec that could be used and the program needs to know which one. For more information about this dialog, I would recommend clicking the Help button and reviewing the information provided there. It is a good idea to check with the Admin before changing these values.

If AutoPipe does not create the pipe, then most likely, the centerlines are not aligned properly and the two components would give you trouble if they are some how connected. The dialogs are similar, but have some differences that correspond to the different autopkant of Primitives being used.

After setting the values into the dialog, press OK and notice that the Associative is placed connected to the cone. When the application is loaded, it will go straight into the model autoplanf begin to load the associated application.

This will bring up the following dialog box.

To being using the “2D to 3D” tool, load Piping or Equipment. 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.

One other helpful note on this is that if one right clicks in the “New Document” dialog above, on the Application, the application’s “Excutable path: Another way to create custom equipment would be to use the Equipment Primitives and Associative Primitives. Now that we have the name set to how we want it and are sure that all the components are in that are needed.


This can be a handy way of checking if your components are odd angles are correctly aligned. Once this is select, the Nozzles properties dialog will be titorial just autoolant the Drums was. If you had dismantled any components and just hit the Close button without Applying the changes, then the pipe may stay in the grayed dashed line style. There are a few other options that this tool allows if one right clicks on a component.

Topworks and Supports can even autoplaant included in the Assembly, or even make up the whole Assembly. The Anchor switch basically forces this to happen. 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.

The Rebuilt Components contains all the components that have been Inserted or Deleted. In the target, the following information is given – “C: Some of the properties can be modified, but that is for more advanced users and I would not recommend doing it until the help file has been fully reviewed and not in a production environment until all the needed values have autoplamt determined.

The dialog will display the reason why it needs user input in the Tutofial of Failure column. If the icon appears to have a box around it, then the tool is turned on and the dialog will be displayed. There are multiple ways that this can be done, but the three main ways are through the Icon, Document Manager, or Vision. Now the equipment can have Nozzles placed on it and connected to piping.

Piping works a little different in the 2D Browser then Equipment. If the user attempts to place a component without relationships in place, they will see a dialog similar to the one below.

An example of a Consistency Report that comes back clean is below. To begin converting this shape into our Equipment, we first select the command like below – This will first request a Tag for the new Equipment, we will call this one ST In this example, the component is in both the 2d and 3d drawings.

I will review the basics of using Assemblies here, but for more advanced information or details on them, I would strongly recommend reviewing those sections of the Help. There is also an option to change an existing Centerline’s properties, which is the Edit Centerline Preferences. Here, the program will prompt the user to make any specification selections that might be needed such as the rating of a Flange like below – The program will go through a number of these options to determine what is best needed for this particular placement of the Assembly.


This will first request a Tag for the new Equipment, we will call this one ST Here, the program will prompt the user to make any specification selections that might be needed such as the rating of a Flange like below. To load a module, just select the module from the Available Modules list, pick the desired option, and then hit either OK or Apply.

In order to place lines, the 2D Browser has to use the Centerline routing tools. But what if a more complicated angle is needed for the tap. From Dialog Requests points to start the centerline, then brings up a dialog for more control over the centerline placement From Points The user picks points in the model and the centerline is generated from these points.

Consistency Check Compares the selected component with it’s 3D inserted counter part Consistency Check All Compares all components with their 3D inserted counter parts Show Consistency Results Shows the results for this component’s Consistency Check Show Consistency Results All Shows the results for all components after running a Consistency Check All Insert in 3D Same effect as drawing the component into the model space Zoom Zooms to the component in the 3D model space, has been known to throw an error when the line has not be inserted Reset Resets the 2D Browser dialog and removes and Consistency reports An example of a Consistency Report that comes back clean is below.

In order to add these components to an Assembly, the Assembly Manager has to be used. What this does is governs how the components will be placed when the Insert button is hit.

If we go over to the equipment section, one will see that there is a Drum with a Nozzle on it. As I press the Resolve Intersection on each, the program inserts the component along the bends in the Centerline.
