This dialog is called when Drawing Access Mode is turned on. There you can see all the components and their properties like this. Below is an image of a Ball Valve that is being changed from 6 to 4. To help with this, Access has a tool called Compact and Repair. The Apply Session button will apply the changes in the Rebuilt Components section.

With a Sphere, it can be a bit difficult to decide which direction is best. This radio button has two choices, Auto Insert and Prompt.

It is a good idea to play around with the anchor and only set it for components that have to stay in that exact spot.

After this is done, the program will go back into the dialog and more options will become available. Select the line that needs to be changed. Press Enter to select the insertion point. Next, the program will request that you pick a point for the elevation. It is recommended that if you didn’t wish to rebuild the components, use the UnRebuild button to remove the modifications and then apply the session with the components in the Dismantled Components section.

The icon is typically named for the AutoCAD it is linked to and if the user has multiple AutoCAD versions installed on the desktop, they will see multiple Plant Design Icons displayed similar to the one below.

This button autoplamt the users to undo any changes made and not rebuild the component. In this example, notice that the tag is in the 2d drawing but not in the 3d drawing.

After setting the values into the dialog, press OK and notice that the Associative is placed connected to the cone.

We think you have liked this presentation. The program will begin to build the Assembly and once it is complete, the Assembly Manager will reload and be back to the “User Assemblies” section with the “Returning Valve” displayed in the Current Assemblies area. Once finished, the program will go back to the Assembly Manager dialog.


It also will cancel any delete jobs as well. Creating an Assembly To begin, we have to draw the Spool that will be used for the Assembly. Here is an example of this. This can be a bit of a pain to fix because the program believes that the nozzle doesn’t have all the correct tutkrial when it does between the two tools.

Now the equipment can have Nozzles placed on it and connected to piping. I will leave it on the default option and press the Resolve Intersection on each row. In this image the ball valve is anchored, notice how the centers of the 4 in the light blue and the center of the 6 in the gray are in the same location. Adding the Nozzle is very similar, just drag and drop the nozzle in to the Model space area of the drawing.

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. Right clicking on the Run L also displays some different options as seen below – In this case, instead of the “Insert in 3D”, the option “Centerline Routers” is displayed with to available options. 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.

This concludes the Basic Modeling blog. This will first request a Tag for the new Equipment, we will call this one ST The centerlines that are placed using these tools work in conjunction with other tools, such as AutoFit, to insert pipe quickly and easily. Most of the options in this menu are self explained, with the autoplanr of Drawing Access Mode which will be covered later. What this does is governs how the components will be placed when the Insert button is hit.

In order to place lines, the 2D Browser has to use the Centerline routing tools. Next, the program will request the direction of the Assembly. Once this is done, the “Insert Assembly” dialog will appear. The line represents were the centerline will run and allows users to use any AutoCAD polyline which can be easier to work with more experienced AutoCAD users then the basic pipe placement commands From File Pulls information from a file to create the centerline, see the help file for more information on this option From Components Creates a centerline based on existing pipeline.


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. Below is a display of what the AutoCAD Object currently looks like – One the tutofial side is a view of the object in wireframe and on the right is a view of it rendered. Briefcase Mode is like passing a single document over to a reviewer rather then the entire cabinet. To make this rectangular solid act as a bottom for the cone, use the below settings.

There are a few other tutorail that this tool allows if one right clicks on a component.

The Anchor switch basically forces this to happen. Select the desired one and the program will next request the location for this nozzle on the equipment.

The component can also still be edited to a point using the Piping commands, but in order to place new module based components, the module will need to be loaded again. This allows the project to have a connection between the 2D and 3D aspects of the project. For this, the Auto Insert will be used. This allows users to check settings quickly and use the features faster without having to go to the pull down menu.

In image, the message says “Status: We can build the Assembly by pressing the Build button. 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. 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 dialog will display the reason why it needs user input in the Cause of Failure column.

This is the second in our series on LiveCycle Data Services.
