Auth with social network: Basic Tap Port Vs. Here is an example of this. This concludes the Basic Modeling blog.

After all the dialogs have been processed, the program will then request the insertion point to be selected. They use the functions and features of AutoPLANT combined with more tools and custom specs to create unique piping components. Notice that the model now shows both the original pipe line shown in white dashed lines and the new pipe line. Now that the Centerline is placed, we will first us the AutoFit command to add some elbows to this line.

Also, location Nozzles can be a big help when using User Defined Equipment. 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 been determined.

Also notice that the selected components will change color in the model to a grayish dashed line. Also, make the distance 0 and make sure that the BW end of the flange is pointing towards the elbows. The drum will be updated the next time they load up the model, but the nozzles could have trouble updating.

Once this is done, all the selected components will change their size to 4 like below. An example of one of these couplings can be seen below – In order to work with these modules, one needs to load them up first.


Hitting the Record Only button will create the document but not launch the application. This tool can speed up this process, but it can also be very difficult to get it working. An easy way to fix this is to just simply reload the 3D model and those changes will take effect.

It also will cancel any tutoorial jobs as well. The Rebuilt Components contains all the components that have been Inserted or Deleted. In order to add these components to an Assembly, the Assembly Manager has to be used.

It allows the user to review the changes made. After placing that, one can then add on Associative Primitives, think of these like the Head of a vessel or a skirt. Here we can change the Spec File that is being used or even the size of the line. This can come out fine, and the program will try to make it that way, but it all depends on the angle of the components and the order in which it is rebuilt. It should now look similar to the image below – Now, we pipkng also place more primitives on this equipment, such as a Head on the top.

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.

Basic Modeling in AutoPLANT

Once the application is selected and the information is inserted, the Create button should be accessible now and pressing it will create the model and load the application. Conclusion This concludes the Basic Modeling blog. There are multiple ways that this can be done, but the tutotial main ways are through the Icon, Document Manager, or Vision.


This is helpful for when the user needs to work on the model when they don’t autopllant access to the project. Another way to create custom equipment would be to use the Equipment Primitives and Associative Primitives.

This section will review these topics and cover some basic information on them. Selecting one of the components will make the grayed out buttons available.

For example, if the rectangle had associative primitives attached to it and it was deleted, all the associates attached to the rectangle will be deleted as well, but its parent, the Cone, will remain. It is a good idea to check with the Admin before changing these values. Share buttons are a little bit lower. As I press the Resolve Intersection on each, the program inserts the component along the bends in the Centerline.

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.

From here, we give the Assembly a name, I am calling this one Returning Valve. Briefcase Mode is like passing a single document over to a reviewer rather then the entire cabinet. This includes the below options.

These can be created in the Project Setup step, but sometimes this can be forgotten or push back until the first model is loaded. Next, the program will request the direction of the Assembly. The defaults for these settings can be set in Project Administrator by the project’s admin.

Using the Equipment primitive that was just aautoplant, place a Associative Rectangular Solid on the bottom.
