|This task shows you how to build a component group.|
|A component group is analogous
to an assembly. You create a component group when you have a defined group
of components that you want to place frequently. Building a component
group allows you to 'assemble' them into a single entity that you can then
place as often as necessary. You can also define flow between the
connectors of a component group. See Defining a Flow Path on a
Component for more information.
The following scenario describes how to build a simple AC Unit consisting of a compressor, finned cooler, and a pressure gauge. However the process for building a component group is the same for other types of equipment or objects.
|To place a part from the catalog click the Place Component button . The Catalog Browser displays. Place a compressor from the catalog.|
|2.||Place the finned cooler and
pressure gauge to create an assembly resembling the image below. Flip
the gauge if necessary to orient it correctly.
|3.||Click the Build Component
Group button .
The Build Component Group dialog box displays.
|The green symbol
represents the placement location. You can drag the symbol to a
location on the component group that is appropriate to where it will be
placed in your diagram.
|4.||Save your document.|
