Placing Parts Using a Schematic
||This task shows how to place
equipment and parts using a schematic drawing. The procedure below
describes placing equipment. The same method is used for placing parts.
||You must follow the parts
placement order described in Schematic Driven Design. You must also set the
Schematic Driven flag described in the same section.
Beginning Release 15, 3D versions of runs must be 'associated' with the
corresponding schematic, if you want to do schematic driven parts placement
on a run. Runs will automatically be associated if you create them in
Release 15 using a schematic. Runs that are not associated with the
corresponding schematic must be associated by you - if you want schematic
driven parts placement. If you change a schematic after creating a
run, you should associate them again. See
Analyzing Schematic Driven Design to learn how to do this.
In order to place equipment you must be in the Equipment Arrangement
workbench. To create a run and place parts you should be in the appropriate
If the Function Driven flag in the project resource management file
is set to 2, then schematic driven parts placement will not be possible in
||Click the Place Equipment button
. Two dialog boxes
display - the Place Equipment box and the Schematic Browser box. If the
Schematic Browser box does not display the schematic you want to use to
place parts then click the Open Schematic Diagram button and select the
schematic you want to use to place parts.
If your resources are stored in ENOVIA then you first need to
import it using procedures described in the
ENOVIA section of this manual.
|Click the equipment you want to place first,
in this case EQ-19.
NOTE: Use of the Select Mode buttons is explained in Placing Parts.
Refer to that task.
- If the equipment you selected has a part number defined then you do
not have to do anything more than place it.
- If the Part Type was not defined (it will display in the Place
Equipment box), then you need to click on the down arrow in the Part Type
field and select a part type.
- If the Clear Filter button is enabled it means that values from a
previous part placement exist in the Filter Definition dialog box. (See
Step 5.) Click the button if you want to clear these values.
- If you want to change the values of one or more properties of the
part you want to filter for, then click the Filter Definition
button to display the Filter Definition dialog box. Select the property
whose value you want to change and then select the new value from the
drop down box in the Value field. (The Value field will display after you
select a property.) This new value will appear in the Override value
column. The values in the Override value column will be used when
searching for parts in the catalog.
- The Override button brings up the Manage Override Parameters dialog
box, allowing you to change attribute values.
- The Flip Part button allows you to flip parts that can be flipped,
such as a reducer.
- The Move/Rotate button displays the Move/Rotate dialog box, allowing
you to manipulate the part.
- The Pipe Selection and Pipe Segment Shortcut buttons are shortcuts
that let you select part type.
- The Change to Schematic Mode button lets you toggle between schematic
and non-schematic mode. You will exit the command when you click this
button and need to click the Place Part command again.
||After you define the Part Type, the Part
Selection box will display and you can select a part. If both Function Type
and Part Type were defined then the Part Selection box will display when
you click on any equipment in the schematic and you can select the part.
||Click in your 3-D document to place the
||Parts and equipment have "ordered placement"
capability. To give an example, in the image below if you have placed the
valves 1 and 3, then valve 2 will only place between those two. You will
not be able to place it to the right of valve 3.
||Using the procedure described above, continue
to place all equipment and nozzles you want to from the schematic.
If you assigned names to connectors when you added them (both in the 3-D
and schematic application) then your 3-D nozzles will be placed at the
correct connector on the equipment - the nozzle will place on the connector
which has the same name as the connector in the schematic application.
