It is usually quicker to just reload the model.

This is helpful for when the user needs to work on the model when they don’t have access to the project. If the icon appears to have a box around it, then the tool is turned on and the dialog will be displayed. What is Assembly Manager? More information on which specs are used for which module can be found under the Help menu for that module.

Inventory Throughout this slide show there will be hyperlinks highlighted in blue follow the hyperlinks to navigate to the specified Topic or Figure. This will bring up the New Document dialog.

AutoPLANT Piping – Tips and Tricks

Next, the program will request the direction of the Assembly. Think of it as a base for the Equipment or main part. 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.

The defaults for these settings can be set in Project Administrator by the project’s admin. In this case, the flange on the upper left was rebuilt first, that is why that one is so close to its original location. 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. The program will then request what type of Nozzle to be placed.

There are sections on insertingcreating and editing them. This dialog is called when Drawing Access Mode is turned on. Tag – defined in the first step Group ID tutroial automatically be generated when the Tutprial 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.


The program will first ask for the elevation, followed by the location, then autooplant direction, and finally the orientation angle.

The drafter can move around the model with the AutoCAD commands before applying the changes to make sure that everything looks ok. It should now look similar to the image below – Now, we can also place more primitives on this equipment, such as a Head on the top. To load a module, just select tutorkal module from the Available Modules list, pick the desired option, and then hit either OK or Apply. All this dialog is telling us is that there are no Line Numbers found in this project or they existed but none of them are selected and that there has to be some before a component can be placed.

An example can be seen below. The dialog will display the reason why it needs user input in the Cause of Failure column. Similar to how Component Preferences setups the components, the Centerline Properties tells the program what options to use when placing the components on the centerline. For example, the spool below could be used in multiple locations of a plant were a return with a valve insert would be needed. After all of this is set, the program will place in the equipment primitive.

Here, autoplznt drafter will need to give the document a name and select the application to associate the document to. After making this change, pressing the Insert button begins the insertion process.

The Assembly should be completely inserted into the model now.

tutoriaal It is a good idea to play around with the anchor and only set it for components that have to stay in tuhorial exact spot. No mater which option is used to place the Centerline, each can have the same tools used with them. 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 autoplanf Consistency reports An example of auto;lant Consistency Report that comes back clean is below.


This is the best way to determine how it reacts. Using the Equipment primitive that was just placed, place a Associative Rectangular Solid on the bottom. In this example, notice that the tag is in the 2d drawing but not in the 3d drawing.

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. This would include typical angles such as a simple olet that connects at a 90 to a pipe.

Just set these to anything that is needed, and then finish placing the xutoplant it will also request the location, elevation, and direction.

In order to place lines, the 2D Browser has to use the Centerline routing tools. This section goes over how to change the line that was just drawn in the above section from a 6 inch line to a 4 inch line.

Basic Modeling in AutoPLANT

About project SlidePlayer Terms of Service. We can build the Assembly by pressing the Build button. As you can see, all the options except for “Select Entities” and “Cancel” are grayed out.

Once this is select, the Nozzles properties dialog autoplang be displayed just as the Drums was. An example of what will be displayed if the component is not inserted into the 3D model is give below. Creating And Maintaining A Database.

As an example, we are going to take a Sphere and make it into a Spherical Tank. When a model is being opened for the first time, it will launch the “Model Setup” dialog. Existing models should already have a project associated with them and will autollant to that. Topworks and Supports can even be included in the Assembly, or even make up the whole Assembly. There are several ways that one can start with this process.
