This Guide This book describes how to use the Tubing Design product. Before you read it, you should be familiar with basic concepts such as document windows, standard tool bars, and view tool bars. To get the most out of this guide, you should start with the tutorial in the Getting Started section.
The remaining sections of the book describe in detail the procedures for using all of the features of the Tubing Design product.
The procedures are divided into user tasks and customization sections. What's New? A task for validating run turns and checking turn radius errors is included. A chart lists the requirements for building various types of parts. These pertain to geometrical requirements, properties, override parameters and connector type. The process for modifying a Lines catalog is explained. Set up changes are also required to enable display of these attributes in catalogs.
Methodology for adding a new nominal size to a part is explained. The penetration management tasks have been revised where they existed, new sections have been added, and penetration management is available in more products now. You can use computed attributes in the names of objects, when you use the object naming rules to define your own naming convention. A tool allows you to check for certain errors in the entries in the project resource management file. Recommendations are included for improving performance, and using certain functions, while working in cache mode.
An explanation is provided of ways in which connections can be established between work packages. Tools for managing publications and cross document connections have been added. Enhanced Functionality A button in the Place Part dialog box allows multi-placement of parts. Parts placement now offers placement selection options. Routing a Run: Select Mode buttons allow you to select where you want to route from. The automatic parts rule can be used as a specification related rule also. Generating Resolved Parts from Parametric: Users need to specify a directory to hold the resolved parts when they are generated.
The functions associated with managing line IDs have been modified with the addition of new capability, which enhances the filtering ability. Some new tasks have also been added and are referred to in the section above. Schematic driven routing now allows you to route through hangers. Getting Started The following short tutorial provides an introduction to the Version 5 Tubing Design product.
It is intended to give you a feel for the product's capabilities in a few step-by-step scenarios, which are listed below. Certain functions will not work without setting up directory paths and options. The system administrator should refer to the tasks under Understanding Project Resource Management as well as platform dependent sample data in Finding sample data on various platforms.
The task Setting Up the Application in the Customizing section describes the various steps you have to take, and the order in which you have to do them, to set up Tubing Design.
In addition there is a resource table in the Customizing section that lists different resources used in this application and some of their characteristics, such as whether they can be customized, whether they are affected by NLS changes and which files are affected if you change units.
Entering the Workbench This task shows you how to enter the Tubing Design workbench. The Tubing Design workbench displays. Set Working Units and Grid This task describes how to set your working units. Select Tools - Options and expand the General node. Select Parameters and Measure then click the Units tab. Under Magnitudes, select Length and click the drop down arrow to set the unit of measure you will be using; Foot, Meter, etc. Now, scroll down the list in Magnitudes and select Area.
Select the unit of measure you will be using for area. Note: This is normally consistent with the Length standard. Enter a value for the Grid Step field; for example, 1 ft. The grid step is the increment used for snapping to grid. Imagine a grid placed over your workspace, consisting of squares. The value you enter in this field becomes the distance between the lines of each square.
If you enter 1 ft then when routing, the run will extend by 1 ft at a time. Runs begin, end and turn at grid intersections there are ways of overriding this. Similarly, when placing parts in free space as opposed to on a run , they will place at grid intersections.
The grid step setting will display in the General Environment toolbar at the bottom of the 3-D viewer. You can change it in the toolbar during your session but the new value will only apply to your current session. If you close the application and reopen it, the toolbar will again display the value in the General tab page. These will be your default settings and will remain in effect until you change them.
Click the OK button to complete the customization of the working units. Creating a Run This task describes how to create a run. In actual practice you will create runs in a much more controlled environment - the deck of a ship, or floor of a house, for instance. In the example below it does not matter where you begin or end a run - but when you are working on a project you will have to start and end at specific places, and your run will have to be a certain size and shape. For more information on runs and routing see Routing a Run.
You will learn more about line IDs later, but you should know that a run is associated with a line ID. A line ID is an organizational element that identifies the type and nominal size of the run e. These properties of the line ID ensure that the parts you place meet the requirements of the line ID and the intended design.
Thus, when you make a run it is part of a line ID. The line ID of your run is displayed on the upper toolbar on the left hand side.
Click the Route a Run button. The Run dialog box opens. Note: If the Design Rule: Multiple Rule Found dialog box opens, this means there is more than one type of run to choose from. For this scenario the choice is unimportant because you are learning the fundamentals of creating a basic run. Select from the table and click OK.
Click the Section button. The Section dialog box.
