6 SmartPlant 3D Installation Guide

Welcome to SmartPlant®

Welcome to SmartPlant®
The Intergraph® Process, Power & Offshore SmartPlant® family of process industry solutions is discipline-specific software that provides an integrated solution for the entire plant life cycle. SmartPlant provides knowledge-based, intuitive, easy-to-use, accessible, flexible, and data-driven tools that support global workflows. With SmartPlant, users can create information and provide data to multiple users at any moment. From these products, users are empowered to create logical and physical definitions of the plant model and have access to plant data from conceptual design through decommissioning.

SmartPlant 3D: An Overview
SmartPlant 3D uses Web and Windows technologies to provide a familiar interface for the user to produce step-changes in three-dimensional detailed plant design, procurement, construction, and operational system performance. This new datacentric solution approach generated by SmartPlant 3D synchronizes key elements of intragration and relationships.

Intragration - SmartPlant 3D allows multiple engineering disciplines to work concurrently and in real-time against relational databases. Relationships - SmartPlant 3D's relationship manager controls design changes across disciplines, which in turn establishes and maintains appropriate behaviors among structures, equipment, and systems.

SmartPlant 3D understands that plant design encompasses more than just 3-D modeling. As such, SmartPlant 3D is designed to integrate the SmartPlant Product Model with Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Operations and Maintenance (O&M), and Front End Engineering and Design (FEED). Traditionally, the only way to extract and load data from one application to another was through neutral format text files. SmartPlant 3D uses stress analysis, flow calculation, pump-sizing capability, and support selection point applications to perform these same tasks. Session files are used by SmartPlant 3D to empower users to define their own view of objects in the database. Its Project Management task enables users to administer and restrict user permissions to areas within the design catalog and the plant model. The optimistic locking feature in SmartPlant 3D makes it possible for users to work concurrently in the same environment and with the same component, whether it's specific to plant design or associated with the relationship of the components themselves. Additional features such as angle locking and interference checking make SmartPlant 3D the ideal software to manage system performance and maintain design intent. Related Topics • Preface, page 6

Third-Party Integration

Third-Party Integration
Equipment Modeling Capability
Although an extensive library of symbols is delivered in the [Product Directory]\Catalog Data\Symbols folder on the administrator machine, you can customize additional three-dimensional symbols for your company using the Visual Basic Symbol Wizard or Solid Edge™. Two-dimensional symbols for structural cross-sections are delivered in the CatalogData\Symbols\CrossSections folder. You can create your own two-dimensional cross-section symbols using the SmartPlant 2D Symbols application. The Visual Basic Symbol Wizard allows you to create and customize threedimensional symbols that fit your company or project. The wizard produces a Visual Basic project for building the symbol ports and graphics, and generates an Excel workbook for bulkloading the symbol data into the Catalog database. SmartPlant 3D also integrates with Solid Edge to provide users with parametric modeling and assembly design capabilities. With Solid Edge, users can build intelligent equipment reference data libraries of base parts that can be placed into the SmartPlant 3D model. An entire catalog of standard equipment can be modeled with Solid Edge, as well as custom, one-of-a-kind equipment for specific plants. Solid Edge's design assistance automatically monitors how close the assemblies match design objectives and comply with design rules. Solid Edge and SmartPlant 3D use the same user interface paradigms, including SmartLocate, SmartStep, and QuickPick, making Solid Edge a natural addition to the SmartPlant 3D product suite. Optimal knowledge of Assembly is required to maximize this capability. You can create member cross-sections using the SmartPlant 2D Symbols application. This application allows you to define different representations for the cross-section using layers. You also can define variables to drive the dimensions of the crosssection symbol. For more information on SmartPlant 3D's equipment modeling capabilities, see either the SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide or the SmartPlant 2D Symbols User's Guide available from the Help > Printable Guides command in the software.

Isometric Drawing Capability
SmartPlant 3D's isometric drawing interface gives users the ability to create piping isometric drawings by extracting data from 3D models and fitting that data into software components. Additionally, the SmartPlant 3D isometric drawing interface works with ISOGEN® software that not only enables users to create piping isometric drawings, including dimensioning, but that also allows users to generate notes, recognize attribute changes, and define which symbols to use in the final drawings. Knowledge of isometric drawings is required to effectively utilize this functionality.

Hardware and Software Requirements

Hardware and Software Requirements
SmartPlant 3D is a state-of-the-art graphics application, capable of creating and displaying very complex three-dimensional models. The SmartPlant technology requires comparable state-of-the-art hardware to ensure a successful, productive, and efficient experience. Before continuing with the installation of SmartPlant 3D, confirm that the administrator, server and workstation machines meet the recommended guidelines for disk partitioning and meet both hardware and software requirements. Related Topics • Hardware Requirements, page 11 • Software Requirements and Loading Order, page 13

Disk Partitioning Guidelines
For best performance when loading and running SmartPlant 3D, partition the hard drive according to the following guidelines: 1. Format all SmartPlant 3D partitions as NTFS file systems. By default, SmartPlant 3D is installed to C:\Program Files\SmartPlant\3D. Ensure you have sufficient free space on your C:\ partition (or another partition if you wish to install SmartPlant 3D there) according to the following information: Minimum Disk Space Requirements for SmartPlant 3D Prerequisite Software Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 Internet Explorer 6.0 Microsoft Office 2000 Microsoft Data Access Components 2.6 Service Pack 1 Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Microsoft 2000 Client Tools Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 2: Database Components 3-Button Mouse Driver Varies.

2. Ensure that the partition where the SQL Server data files will be stored has sufficient space. The system requires 120 MB to create a new set of databases and a small model will take a minimum of 250-300 MB. Intergraph PPO recommends that you have at least 1.0 GB of free space for database storage. You also will need additional disk space if you intend to use other products, such as Visual Basic® 6.0 with Visual Studio Service Pack 5, and/or Solid Edge version 10. Please consult your system administrator for this and additional software not provided by Intergraph PPO. Warning

Do not continue with the installation of SmartPlant 3D until enough disk space is free on the workstation, administrator, or server machine as stated in the aforementioned procedure.

Related Topics • Disk Partitioning Guidelines, page 10

Hardware Requirements
For optimal viewing and performance results of SmartPlant 3D, the following minimum hardware requirements are advised:
• • • • •

500 MHz Pentium® II processor, or higher, recommended Minimum of 256 MB memory for each client Minimum of 512 MB memory for server 100Mbit or better network with 100Mbit or better NICs in each machine Minimum of 1 GB hard drive disk space on the drive where the SQL server databases are stored Access to a CD-ROM drive or network drive 21" color monitor (capable of a minimum of 1024 x 768)

SmartPlant 3D Installation Guide 11

Hardware and Software Requirements

Graphics cards designed for 3D intensive applications that generate low CPU overhead and meet the following requirements:
• • • • • • • •

32-bit main RGBA pixel buffer Hardware OpenGL 1.1 support Hardware Z buffer: 32 bit 64 MB RAM recommended, 32 MB RAM minimum 4-bit minimum overlay buffer support 8-bit stencil buffer Hardware Alpha blending support Hardware Anti-aliasing support recommended

Important

If you are unsure about your graphics card's capabilities, contact your vendor or local system support group for assistance. Notes

Many of the recent generation video cards provide some level of OpenGL acceleration. Some manufacturers provide poor OpenGL drivers that can cause artifacts. Testing has shown that NVIDIA and Intense3D provide good drivers. ATI and Matrox often seem to have OpenGL problems with their drivers. Cards with double-buffered overlay planes (such as the Wildcat cards) have an advantage because highlighting can be done without having to do save/restores. Cards without overlay planes rely on blits during highlight operations, so good blit performance is needed, as well as good drivers. For example, the NVIDIA Geforce 2 graphics cards had unacceptable performance with their initial drivers, but since the release of the Detonator 3 drivers and beyond, the Geforce 2 cards have shown good performance while running SmartPlant 3D. Dual screen configurations should have either a single graphics card with two VGA outputs or two identical graphics cards. The graphics card(s) should otherwise meet the requirements of the specified graphics card recommendations.

Configuring SmartPlant 3D Databases
You must have the server components from Microsoft SQL Server 2000 installed on the server in order to create the databases. The server components are installed on the server by default when following the procedure outlined in Install Microsoft SQL Server 2000, page 58. Important

Administrative privileges are required for the following utilities to run correctly and for you to change necessary items.

Understanding SmartPlant 3D Databases
SmartPlant 3D must have five databases in order to function properly. They must be created before running SmartPlant 3D. The five databases are: 1. Site database 2. Site schema database 3. Catalog database 4. Catalog schema database 5. Plant (Model) database Note

An additional set of databases - the Reports and Reports schema databases - are optional and may be created and linked to a Plant database. The Reports database is a set of views that point to objects in other databases.

The Plant database contains the physical model of your plant. A Site database can point to multiple Plant databases. However, a Plant database cannot point to multiple Site databases simultaneously. The Catalog database and Catalog schema databases contain the reference data information, which includes physical dimensions and industry standards. Catalog and Plant databases share the same Catalog schema database. You can create a new Catalog database and Catalog schema database from a data file delivered with the software. The data file contains the definition of a catalog of business objects, including specific sizes of pipes, pipe specifications, steel section sizes, and so forth. You can modify the delivered reference data by editing and bulkloading Microsoft Excel workbooks. You can view the Site database in the Project Management task, and you can view the Catalog database hierarchy and contents in the Catalog task. The Catalog has two kinds of hierarchies: a Site database hierarchy comprised of catalog permission group folders and permission groups, accessed through the Project Management task, and an object hierarchy comprised of equipment, piping, and so forth, accessed

SmartPlant 3D Installation Guide 73

Configuring SmartPlant 3D Databases through the Catalog task. For more information about the functionality in these tasks, refer to the Project Management Help and the Catalog Help files. These help files are delivered to the \Common\Help directory on the workstation machine. For creation date and size information on each database, you can open the SQL Server Enterprise Manager. This software also provides further technical details about the relational tables in each database.

Configuring Interference Checking Server

Configuring Interference Checking Server
The Database Detect process runs on an Interference Detection (IFC) server. The SmartPlant 3D Database Interference Detection process is based on automatically checking new or modified objects against existing objects. When an object is created or modified, it is checked for interferences against all objects in the specified Plant database. The interferences generated by this process are persistent, meaning that the interferences are stored in a database like any other objects created using SmartPlant 3D. Changing the properties of plant objects can also modify these interferences. Interferences are also assigned to a permission group, thus making it possible to handle the entire process with SmartPlant 3D permission groups. Using commands in the Project Management task, a system administrator can limit user access of interferences to the proper user groups. Important

The IFC Server must have the same product version of SmartPlant 3D as the workstations that use the Interference Detection service.

Set IFC Permission Requirements
A Start menu shortcut for Check Interference is created when the Project Management component is installed on a machine. Since Project Management is typically installed on the administrator machine, you can use the administrator machine as the IFC server. Once the proper access permissions are configured, you can start the Database Detect process from the administrator machine. The SmartPlant 3D database hierarchy is comprised of a Plant that is associated to the Model and Catalog databases. For the IFC Database Detection process to run correctly, permissions must be set at the Plant and permission group levels in the Plant database. Important
