This dialog allows users to Load or unload the selected module or all of the modules. 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. The Primitive that autoplanh Associative Primitives can be considered Parents while the attached Associative Primitive can be called the Child. One last note on this tool, do not just hit the Close button to exit the tool.

Also, location Nozzles can be a big help when using User Defined Equipment. In image, the message says “Status: This is to tell the drafter that these components are to be dismantled.

Now, we can just insert this Assembly into the current model, but I am going to load up a new model to show how the Assembly is now stored in the Project. Now when starting this command, the program will request which primitive to associate this Associative Primitive with. In order to place these components, just drag and drop the component into the 3d model space. There are a few other options that this tool allows if one right clicks on a component.

The Valve is very similar to how the equipment is displayed as it uses the “Insert in 3D” options to be placed. With a Sphere, it can be a bit difficult to decide which direction puping best.


To load a module, just select the module from the Available Modules list, pick the desired option, and then hit either OK or Apply. This concludes the Basic Modeling blog. Share buttons are a little bit lower. 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. This can be a bit confusing since thtorial 2D Browser will show the new tag and if the drafter doesn’t know which tag was changed, they will need to either know the original tags name and which one is missing or go through each component.

Since there is a Handwheel in this Assembly, the Handwheel properties will also appear. 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 autoplaht the “Returning Valve” displayed in the Current Assemblies area.

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. Each module has it’s own commands that reside in the pull down. Another way to fix this would be to run the Consistency Checker in the 2D Browser to locate what tags changed and then manually change the components Tags to match to new ones.

Notice that all the information for the Nozzle is already placed, such as the Spec and Line Number. To begin working with these, one needs to start with an Equipment Primitive. What most users would do in this case if redraw the whole line. 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 centerlines that are placed using these tools work in conjunction with other tools, such as AutoFit, to insert pipe quickly and easily.


The first step in the creation process is to select all the components that will make up the Assembly.

When placing an Equipment Primitive, the program will start out by requesting the Pipinf number for this Equipment. The line represents were the centerline will run and allows users to use any AutoCAD polyline which can tutorlal easier to work with more experienced Pipkng 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.

This button allows 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. When beginning to model, the drawing has to have some default relationships created to use for the components. What these two options do pjping allow users to build equipment from primitive objects, similar to AutoCAD’s 3D shapes. 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.

There are multiple ways that this can be done, but the three main ways are through the Icon, Document Manager, or Vision.
