After placing that, one can then add on Associative Primitives, think of these like the Head of a vessel or a skirt. One group of these tools are called Modules. Close out of the currently drawing and save all changes.

They are very similar to one another in how they look and work. Once loaded, the user should see autoplannt 2D Browser open up, similar to the image below.

The dialog will display the reason why it needs user input in the Cause of Failure column. When the application is loaded, it will go straight into the model and begin to load the associated application. For this, the Auto Insert will be used. There are sections on insertingcreating and editing them. It is recommended that if you didn’t wish to rebuild the components, use the UnRebuild button to remove the modifications and then apply the session with the components in the Dismantled Components section.

If you had dismantled any components and just hit the Close button without Applying the changes, then the pipe may stay in the grayed dashed line style. A list of each value and what it does can be found below: OK Information Security After making this change, pressing the Insert button begins the insertion process. What most users would do in this case if redraw the whole line.

After all the dialogs have been processed, the program will then request the insertion point to be selected.

It also will cancel any delete jobs as well. This radio button has two choices, Auto Insert and Prompt.

Set the dimensions to the desired values and then press OK to begin placing the Primitive in the model. If the 3D model is not opened at the time that the changes are done, the 3D model will be automatically updated because the two drawings are linked to the same database. 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. In this case, it would be the valve that was shown in the previous example.

Tag – defined in the first step Group ID – automatically be generated when the Equipment 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 help files can be either accessed from within the programs, through the use of Help buttons in some dialogs this loads the help file up on the topic that corresponds to the menu that the Help button was inor by going to the Help folder under the Bentley Plant V8i folder. The program will first ask for the elevation, followed by the location, then the direction, and finally the orientation angle.

The user can check other components, such as the Flanges to keep them from shifting, but keep in mind that if the there are two connecting components that will resize and they are both anchored, they may not stay connected.

This additional information gives details on what spec, service and area is being used by the component, as well as a few other details. If the valve was rebuilt first, it may have ended up in the correct location.

Right clicking on the Run L also displays some different options as seen below – In this case, instead of the “Insert in 3D”, the option “Centerline Routers” is displayed with to available options. When placing a nozzle, if it is noticed that the nozzle isn’t function the way that was intended, all one needs to do is edit the User Equipment, which will in turn load the User Defined Equipment dialog, and one can redo the points.


Assemblies are like pre-built spools that can be stored in the project for later use.

Some of the messages given by the Consistency Report are not as clear, as one can see below – In image, the message says “Status: CS — MENU Tutorlal users to quickly select a component from a spec record and place it Settings for the component are determined by what is in Component preferences. One other helpful note on this is that if one tutoriial clicks in the “New Document” dialog above, on the Application, the application’s “Excutable path: This is fine for when working on a short line, but what if the line contains many different components and is very long.

After the points are done, the Length and Radius become available. In this image the ball valve is anchored, notice how the centers of the 4 in the light blue and the center of the 6 in the gray are in the same location.

If the user attempts to place a component without relationships in place, they will see a dialog similar to the one hutorial. This allows the project to have a connection between the 2D and 3D aspects of the project.

Basic Modeling in AutoPLANT

From here, we give the Assembly a name, I am calling this one Returning Valve. These modules are kind of like customizations that are provided in the program to do special jobs. Document Manager is a document autoplnat tool that is included with AutoPLANT, while Vision has more features and has it’s own license that has to be purchased. The drafter can move around the model aufoplant the AutoCAD commands before applying the changes to make sure that everything looks ok.
