This will bring up the New Document dialog. This concludes the Basic Modeling blog. Notice that all the information for the Nozzle is already placed, such as the Spec and Line Number.

Centerline Routers are tools to place intelligent centerlines that can be used to place components. CS — MENU Allows users to quickly select a component from a spec record and place it Settings for the component are determined by what is tutorual Component preferences.

After the points are done, the Length and Radius become available. After the components are selected, they will be placed into the Dismantled Components section like so.

Anything that happens to the Parent in turn affects the child. This allows users to check settings quickly and use the features faster without having to go to the pull down auto;lant.

These points decide how the nozzles will be aligned. One thing to note, Spools are not the only thing that can be used to make an Assembly.

Basic Modeling in AutoPLANT

There is a few times were this information will not show updated in the 2D Browser. For example, the spool below could be used in multiple locations of a plant were a return with a valve insert would be needed.

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. As one can see from the image above, the options include the following: This tool can speed up this process, but it can also be very difficult to get it working.


If the component is selected in the Dismantled Components list, it will change slightly in the model space to show that it is selected and were it is. The first part of this is pointing to the acad. See the list below for information on each one. Each module has it’s own commands that reside in the pull down. This allows the project to have a connection between the 2D and 3D aspects of the project. If the user attempts to place a component without relationships in place, they will see a dialog similar to the one below.

Sometimes, a dialog called “Bentley AutoFit Resolver” will appear that looks similar to this.

Most of the time, a component that requires a Tap Port can be placed with the basic tap port placement. It is usually quicker to just reload the model. Selecting one of the components will make the grayed out buttons available. Briefcase Mode is like passing a single document over to a reviewer rather then the entire cabinet. When selecting the components here, the UnRebuild button will tutorrial available.

No mater which option is used to place the Centerline, each can have the same tools used with them. In this example, the location point was made to be the center of the sphere, the direction point was end going in the positive X direction, while the Orientation was in the Positive Y direction. For example, the spool below could be used in multiple locations of a plant were a turorial 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.

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. The command hasn’t been changed to match this change yet. In this example, I am going to change the Size for this from 6, which is what the original components were that made up this assembly, and I will use 4 instead.


The dialog will display the reason why it needs user input in the Cause of Failure column. After selecting this, the below dialog uatoplant appear – This dialog allows users to Load or unload the selected module or all of the modules. During modeling, sometimes a plant will have similar spools of pipe that are repeatedly used through out it.

This dialog is displayed because the program needs some input on were the center autopoant the bend will be placed. The Victaulic module gutorial this and will help in placing these connections.

An tytorial of what will be displayed atoplant the component is not inserted into the 3D model is give below. Just set these to anything that is needed, and then finish placing the component it will also request the location, elevation, and direction. This will load the following dialog.

Document Manager is a document management tool that tutorisl included with Tutodial, while Vision has more features and has it’s own license that has to be purchased. After running AutoPipe, the line should be component and look like this. The Anchor switch basically forces this to happen. To locate which specs are needed for this module, either do a search on Specs or Specifications. This button allows the users to undo any changes made and not rebuild the component.

As you can see, all the options except for “Select Entities” and “Cancel” are grayed out. This dialog allows users to Load or unload the selected module or all of the modules. This will also require some manual inserting by the user, such as placement for the Run and location of bends an such.

This can be easily fixed by adding the Relationships into Component Preferences.
