In the target, the following information is given – “C: There are a number of different ways to use Centerline. Here, the drafter will need to give the document a name and select the application to associate the document to.

Feedback Privacy Policy Feedback. Select the LB flange and press OK to continue. An example can be seen below. Briefcase Mode is like passing a single document over to a reviewer rather then the entire cabinet. In order to add these components to an Assembly, the Assembly Manager has to be used.

tutoroal Once finished, the program will go back to the Assembly Manager dialog. Next, create a new model and load it up in that same project.

In the example above, the valve is currently selected in the session and the other components are also going to be dismantled. Consistency Check Compares the selected component with it’s 3D inserted counter part Consistency Check All Compares all components with their 3D inserted counter parts Show Consistency Results Shows the results for this component’s Consistency Check Show Consistency Results All Shows the results for all components after running a Consistency Check All Insert in 3D Same effect as drawing the pipnig into the model space Zoom Zooms to the component in the 3D model space, has been known to throw an error when the line has not be inserted Reset Resets the 2D Browser dialog and removes and Consistency reports An example of a Consistency Report that comes back clean is below.

Once all the components are selected, press Enter to end the select. Anything that happens to the Parent in turn affects the child.


Once this is done, the “Insert Assembly” dialog will appear. If the valve was rebuilt first, it may have ended up in the correct location.

They can also be changed slightly so that variations of the spool, such as different ratings or sizes could be placed as well autoplabt the need of creating another Assembly. Now the equipment can have Nozzles placed on it and connected to piping. It allows the user to review the changes made. This is the best way to determine how it reacts. There are several ways that components can be placed. Creating an Assembly To begin, we auutoplant to draw the Spool that will be used for the Assembly.

Such as the image below. 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. Share buttons are a little bit lower.

After selecting this, the below dialog will appear – This dialog allows users to Load or unload the selected module or all of the modules. Now when starting this command, the program will request which primitive to associate this Associative Primitive with. One thing to note, it can be difficult to determine the best placement of the points, try place nozzles and seeing how they react to the setup, then make some changes to the points to see how they change.

The Attachments and Supports section will display any attachments such as Topworks or supports that are attached to the selected component in the Dismantled Components section. A full understanding of Centerline Routing will help a long way into working with this feature.

After making this change, pipjng the Insert button begins the insertion process. The program will go through a number of these options to determine what is best needed for this particular placement of the Assembly.

These ajtoplant sections can be found under the Equipment menu as seen below – What these two options do is allow users to build equipment from primitive objects, similar to AutoCAD’s 3D shapes. Each one has a different menu when being placed so that the different values that define that shape can be set.


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. Inserting Assemblies Once piping is fully loaded, go to the Assembly Manager and select the new Assembly.

Now that all tutorisl projects setup is done, the drafters should be ready to being drawing the Models that are going pipnig be included in the project. Now that we have the name set to how we want it and are sure that all the components are in that are needed. When selecting the components here, the UnRebuild button will become available. The component can also still be edited to a point using the Piping commands, but in order to place new module based components, the module will need to be loaded again.

With that set, pressing the Insert button will begin the insertion process for each selected component, if only one component is selected, then that component will be inserted, but the other components will not. Below is a display of what the AutoCAD Object currently looks like – One the left side is a view of the object in wireframe and on the right is a view of it rendered.

For example, if the rectangle had associative primitives attached to it and it was deleted, all the associates attached to the rectangle will be deleted as well, but its parent, the Cone, will remain. The defaults for these settings can be set in Project Administrator by the project’s admin. It will also try to touch on a few known issues that users have experienced. The Rebuilt Components contains all the components that have been Inserted or Deleted.
