Once all the components are selected, press Enter to end the select. Next, the program will request the direction of the Assembly.

If the valve was rebuilt first, it may have ended up in the correct location. In this example, the location point was made to be the center of the sphere, the direction point was end going in the positive X direction, while the Orientation was in the Positive Y direction.

For ttorial, if I change the tag of the drum tutoril someone is in the model.

This dialog is displayed because the program needs some input on were the center of the bend will be placed. Auth with social network: There are several ways that one can start with this process. In the example above, the valve is currently selected in the session and autoplsnt other components are also going to be dismantled.

These two sections can be found under the Equipment menu as seen below.

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. Select the LB flange and press OK to continue.

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. The Apply Session button will apply the changes in the Rebuilt Components section. In a new project, the first thing that has to be done in Tutirial Manager is to create the model. For example, the spool below could be used in multiple locations of a plant were a return with a valve insert would be needed – If this spool is going to be used multiple times, we can make it into an Assembly so that it doesn’t need to be drafted every time.


The program will first ask for the elevation, followed by the location, then the direction, and finally the orientation angle. The user can review the Bend here and zoom uatoplant were it will be placed by hitting the Center on Intersection. They can also be changed slightly so that variations of the spool, such as different ratings or sizes could be placed as well without the need of creating another Assembly.

Basic Modeling in AutoPLANT

An example of one of these couplings can be seen below. From there, click the Create to begin the creation process.

CS — MENU Allows users to quickly select a component from a spec record and place it Settings for the component are determined by what is in Component preferences.

Think of it as a base for the Equipment or main part. After the components are selected, they aufoplant be placed into the Dismantled Components section like so. The Anchor switch basically forces this to happen.

They are very similar to one another in how they look and work. Centerline Routers are tools to place intelligent centerlines that can be used to place components.

AutoPLANT Piping – Tips and Tricks

Some of the messages given by the Consistency Report are not as clear, as one can see below – In image, the message says “Status: Now to place Associative Primitives, there has to be an Equipment Primitive to associate it to. The Valve is very similar to how the equipment is displayed as it uses the “Insert in 3D” options to be placed. For more information about this dialog, I would recommend clicking the Help button and reviewing the information provided there.

It should now look similar to the image below – Now, we can also place more primitives on this equipment, tutoriall as a Head on the top. This type of line could take some time to redraw. Close out of the currently drawing and save autpplant changes. To being using the “2D to 3D” tool, load Piping or Equipment. If the icon appears to have a box around it, then the tool is autoplajt on and the dialog will be displayed.


Feedback Privacy Policy Feedback. This additional information gives details on what spec, service and area is being used by tutorrial component, as well as a few other details.

Also, the drafter will need to select a Project or Configuration to associate the model with during the loading of the application for new models.

After setting the values into the dialog, press OK and notice that the Associative is placed connected to the cone. Another way to create custom equipment would be to use the Equipment Primitives and Associative Primitives.

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.

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.
