SmartPlant I-Configure User's Guide

SECTION 1

Welcome to SmartPlant I-Configure


SmartPlant I-Configure allows you to create and manage the isometric directories, projects and styles that are used by other SmartPlant products to generate isometric drawings and reports using ISOGEN. ISOGEN is the industry-standard software for the automatic production of piping isometric drawings. It is integral to most of the major plant design systems on the market, including PDS and SmartPlant 3D, and is used in the vast majority of process plant projects involving the design of pipework. A significant factor in the success of ISOGEN is its broad range of configuration options. Virtually everything about the piping isometric drawing from the style of dimensioning and format of weld and part numbers to the location and layout of the material take-off is configurable. This allows you to produce isometric drawings to your own specifications. SmartPlant I-Configure has been specifically designed to simplify the customization of piping isometrics produced by ISOGEN. It allows ISOGEN's substantial array of control switches and files to be easily managed. Easy to learn and simple to use, SmartPlant I-Configure makes ISOGEN features available to more users and allows them to configure SmartPlant Isometrics, SmartPlant Isometrics I-Tools, and SmartPlant Spoolgen. SmartPlant I-Configure includes the following features: Support for projects (see "Import Project" on page 69) and styles created in Project Manager (PipMan). Connections (see "Connect to Isometric Directory" on page 33) to network projects (see "Set up a Network Project" on page 16) . Object (see "Objects" on page 20) -based user interface for the configuration of ISOGEN control files. Explorer type windows (see "Exploring the SmartPlant I-Configure Interface" on page 29) to navigate the available projects and styles. Wizards (see "Wizards Menu" on page 38) to quickly set-up and configure styles. XML (see "Configuration Files" on page 11) files for storage of project and style information. Built-in drawing previewer (see "Preview Drawing" on page 64) to graphically examine onthe-fly the impact of modifications made to styles. Password protection (see "Project Access Rights" on page 76) to avoid unauthorized alterations to projects and styles.

SmartPlant I-Configure User's Guide

Welcome to SmartPlant I-Configure

Legacy System Support


SmartPlant I-Configure allows you to import style settings from earlier versions of I-Sketch, IConfigure and SPOOLGEN, and even from IDF files.

Information for I-Configure 2.8 Users


The MLD/WDF format created by the software was changed in subsequent version of the software. However, you can use the Comment (on page 20) field to control the format more precisely. This will impact on SmartPlant Isometrics I-Data Integrator, which uses the comment field in the MLD to control the name of fields created in its database tables. Consequently, you must manually set up projects used by SmartPlant Isometrics I-Data Integrator to ensure that the new formats match the old. For details of all other changes made in this version of the software, refer to the Release Notes.txt file that is delivered with the software. By default, this file is delivered to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Intergraph\I-Configure during installation.

Information for I-Sketch Users


The introduction of SmartPlant I-Configure impacts SmartPlant Isometrics users as follows. SmartPlant Isometrics works against existing PipMan projects and styles without any modification being necessary, and without PipMan being installed on the machine. SmartPlant I-Configure replaces PipMan and the ISOGEN Options and AText editors. The AText.pdf is delivered by default to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Intergraph\IConfigure\resdlls\0009 during installation of the software. PipMan projects were fixed format and always included: Projects - Pipes, Exports and Inputs folders. Styles - Drawings, Messages, Reports folders.

SmartPlant I-Configure projects are controlled by an XML configuration file. All ISOGEN settings (inputs and outputs) are written to this file, which is held in the Style folder. The outputs from SmartPlant I-Configure are the same as from PipMan - the FLS and ISOGEN control files: DDF, MLD, WDF, POS and so on. Project properties are not held in registry. Instead, they are contained in a variety of XML configuration files (on page 11). Existing PipMan projects and styles must be imported (see "Import Project" on page 69) before they can be changed in SmartPlant I-Configure.

SmartPlant I-Configure User's Guide

SECTION 2

Getting Started
SmartPlant I-Configure brings all of ISOGEN's controls together into a single application. In its interface, these are represented as a series of control objects which have properties. For example, the control objects have an OutputFormat property which controls the CAD format of the drawing. Where appropriate, the allowable options are presented to the user to minimize error.

Convenient Style Wizards


You can choose from hundreds of properties to set, some of which must be set in combination with other properties. To assist the user, I-Configure features a number of wizards which guide the user step by step through setting particular sets of related properties. The drawing wizard helps the user configure the drawing template. This is usually a companystandard backing sheet on which ISOGEN plots the drawing and related data such as the material take-off, welding report, and project-related data. The drawing wizard has a graphical interface, overlaying the location of key items onto the backing sheet. The dimensioning wizard helps the user set up the dimensioning styles used by ISOGEN. Other wizards assist with the setup of welding controls such as weld numbering styles and numbering sequences, and in the creation of report files.

Preview Mode
SmartPlant I-Configure allows the user to quickly preview the results the settings configured using a built-in test file. ISOGEN can be run to check the output without ever leaving the IConfigure environment. To function correctly, the Drawing Setup Wizard (on page 39) and the Preview Drawing (on page 64) command both require that VoloView Express is installed on the workstation that is running SmartPlant I-Configure. Also, if you do not have access to any other 2D CAD system for isometric drawing productions, you can use VoloView Express to produce DXF drawings in any of the other products and tools delivered on the product DVD. VoloView Express is delivered on the Intergraph SmartPlant Isometrics product DVD. For information about installing VoloView Express, see the SmartPlant Isometrics Installation Guide, which is available using the Help > Printable Guides command in the software.

Getting Started

Configuration Files
SmartPlant I-Configure stores configuration information in a variety of XML files. CreateTutorial_<application name>.xml (on page 12) IsoDirList.xml (on page 13) Project_Data.xml (on page 13) ProjectConfig_<application name>.xml (on page 13) ProjectList.xml (on page 15) ProjectPipeline.xml (on page 15) Style.xml (on page 15)

Although you can view configuration files using Internet Explorer; Intergraph PPM cautions against modifying them in any way.

See also
Backing Sheets (on page 12) Templates (on page 12)

Backing Sheets
To help you get started with SmartPlant I-Configure, a set of backing sheets, commonly referred to as drawing frames, is supplied. During a default installation of the software, these backing sheets are delivered to <Installation Folder>Program Files\Common Files\Intergraph\IConfigure\Backing Sheets.

See also
TemplateFile (on page 338)

Templates
To help you get started with SmartPlant I-Configure, a set of template Styles is supplied with the software. During a default installation, these template styles are delivered to <Installation Folder>:\Program Files\Common Files\Intergraph\I-Configure\Templates.

SmartPlant I-Configure User's Guide

Getting Started

CreateTutorial_<application name>.xml
The CreateTutorial_<application name>.xml configuration file controls the creation of the tutorial project. Each product installs its own version of this file. The CreateTutorial configuration file uses the same syntax as the ProjectConfig_< application name>n.xml file--CopyFile and CreateFolder--but also supports the setting of project defaults to specific values.

See also
Tutorial Project (on page 15) ProjectConfig_<application name>.xml (on page 13)

IsoDirList.xml
Contains the list of isometric directories set-up on the current machine. SmartPlant I-Configure creates this configuration file %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Alias. Windows 2000, XP - ALLUSERSPROFILE = Documents and Settings\All Users Windows NT - ALLUSERSPROFILE = WINNT\Profiles\All Users

Project_Data.xml
Each project folder contains a Project_Data file, which is used to store application-specific project defaults (on page 37) and other project level data. For example, in the file name P1000_Data.xml, P1000 is the name of the project.

ProjectConfig_<application name>.xml
The structure of SmartPlant I-Configure projects is controlled by the ProjectConfig_<application name>.xml file configuration file--for example, ProjectConfig_Spoolgen.xml. In a default setup, this file is delivered to <Installation Folder>:\Program Files\Common Files\Intergraph\I-Configure\Application Data. Although projects are application-specific, they can be enabled for multiple applications from the same source, if necessary. The project configuration file defines: Any data files that must be copied to the project (or style). Any folders that must be created. Any mandatory styles that must be created. For example, SmartPlant Spoolgen must have a style called SGImport and one called Spool. Any application-specific project defaults.

SmartPlant I-Configure User's Guide

13

Getting Started When you create a new SmartPlant I-Configure project, you must use the Application list to specify the associated application. The software displays a list of supported applications in the Application list on the New Project dialog box, depending on what has been installed.

Using a User-Defined ProjectConfig_App.xml File


If a file with the name UserProjectConfig_<application name>.xml is found in the same folder as the supplied ProjectConfig_<application name>.xml file, it is used in preference to define the project structure, style content and so on. This allows you to create a user-specific project configuration that is not overwritten by the next installation of SmartPlant I-Configure. For example, if both UserProjectConfig_SPIsometrics.xml and ProjectConfig_SPIsometrics.xml are found in the same folder, the software uses the former XML configuration file when you set-up a new project for SmartPlant Isometrics.

14

SmartPlant I-Configure User's Guide

Getting Started Initial Settings New syntax in ProjectConfig_<application name>.xml file allows you to specify an initial setting (in the form of an XML file) for any property using the following syntax:
<SetProjectProperties PROPERTY='FILENAME' />

Consider the following example:


<SetProjectProperties WeldGaps='$APPCONFIG$\Application Data\WeldGaps_Template.xml' ElbowConversion='$APPCONFIG$\Application Data\ElbowConversion_Template.xml'/>

SmartPlant I-Configure then loads the specified property with the contents of the specified file.

See also
Create a Project (on page 121) Enable Project (on page 34) Source (on page 93) Project Defaults (on page 37)

ProjectList.xml
Each isometric directory contains a ProjectList.xml file, which contains a list of projects and styles.

ProjectPipeline.xml
The ProjectPipeline.xml file is an application-specific configuration file, which can be present in the project folder. For example, it is be found in SmartPlant Spoolgen- and SmartPlant Isometrics-enabled projects. The ProjectPipeline.xml file contains the user specified extensions to Pipeline, Component, Weld and Bolt attributes that have been defined for the project.

See also
Pipeline Attributes (on page 108) Component Attributes (on page 110) Weld Attributes (on page 110) Bolt Attributes (on page 111) Project Defaults (on page 37)

Style.xml
Each style folder contains a Style.xml file, such as Final-Basic.xml, which is used to store the style configuration data. To help you get started with SmartPlant I-Configure, a set of template styles is supplied with the software. However, before a style can be used by an application, the style must first be exported. If you have not already exported the style, the application can perform this step for itself.

Getting Started

Tutorial Project
Any product which uses SmartPlant I-Configure, such as SmartPlant Spoolgen or SmartPlant Isometrics, installs a sample tutorial project that you can use to help you get started (see "Getting Started" on page 11) with the software. If you alter the tutorial project in anyway, you can use the Create Tutorial Utility to restore its out-of-the-box default settings. To launch the utility, click Start > All Programs > Intergraph SmartPlant Isometrics > Create Tutorial Project. The following table shows the styles made available under the tutorial project structure depending on which application is installed:

Application
SmartPlant Isometrics

Command Line Switch


-aSPIsometrics

Result

SmartPlant Spoolgen

-aSpoolgen

Do not use the tutorial project as a basis for production work, as subsequent installations of the same application overwrite the tutorial project. If you make changes to the tutorial project and wish to keep them, rename the SampleIsoDir or the project before reinstalling any software which installs and runs CreateTutorial.exe as part of its installation, or before running Create Tutorial Project from the Start menu.

Getting Started

Set up a Network Project


You can set up projects on a network server so that users working on multiple client workstations can access and share project configurations concurrently.

What do you want to do?


Set Up a Project on a Network Server (on page 17) Connect to a Network Project (on page 18)

For a description of use of mapped drives and UNC paths for network projects, see Options (on page 77). For more information about connecting to network isometric directory and associate projects, see Connecting to an Isometric Directory (see "Connect to Isometric Directory" on page 33).

See also
Project View Panel (on page 79) Supplementary ReportFiles Object (on page 532) Supplementary ReportFiles ISOGENFiles Collection (on page 534)

Set Up a Project on a Network Server


1. Create an isometric directory (on page 88). 2. Create a project (on page 121) and its associated styles. To avoid file conflict errors, it is also necessary to change the output path for the Message file for each style in the project configuration, so that the file is written locally-for example to C:\TEMP--when users attempt to use the same style concurrently. ISOGEN then outputs the Message file it creates to this local folder instead of to the same folder on the network server. 3. Use Windows Explorer to create the Message file path, such as C:\TEMP, if one does not exist.

SmartPlant I-Configure User's Guide

17

Getting Started 4. For each style in the project, add a definition (see "Add to Collection" on page 23) to the Supplementary ReportFiles object's ISOGENFiles collection, which sets the message path to C:\TEMP\Message filename.

You can use the Reports wizard (on page 63) can be used to set the message file path. Use an appropriate filename for the message file, such as Spool mes for the spool style. Set the drive on which the isometric directory and project to be connected to resides to be shared, and set the required permissions for the share.

Connect to a Network Project


1. Click Create Isometric Directory . 2. In the Browse for Folder dialog box, browse to the network path where the isometric directory to be connected to resides, select the project, and then click OK. The project appears in the Project View panel.

Create User Templates


1. Create the style (see "Create a Style" on page 559) using your own company standard backing sheet and settings. 2. Save the style XML file and copy it to a folder designated to hold your company templates. For the purposes of this example, assume that the style template is stored in \\Server\CompanyTemplates folder. File paths in the project/style hierarchy are automatically converted to use $PROJECT$ or $STYLE$ instead of the actual file path. This means that the style XML files can readily be copied between styles and do not need modification.

18

SmartPlant I-Configure User's Guide

Getting Started 3. Copy the ProjectConfig_<application name>.xml file to a file named UserProjectConfig_<application name>.xml and modify this file to reference your new template. By default, the ProjectConfig_<application name>.xml file is delivered to in <Installation Folder>:\Program Files\Common Files\Intergraph\IConfigure\Application Data and is application-specific. That is, there is a file called ProjectConfig_Spoolgen.xml that defines SmartPlant Spoolgen projects and another called ProjectConfig_SPIsometrics.xml for SmartPlant Isometrics projects.

See also
Modify the ProjectConfig File (see "Modify the User ProjectConfig File" on page 19) Save (on page 35)

Modify the User ProjectConfig File


Before proceeding, make a backup copy of the ProjectConfig_<application name>.xml file. You can safely modify the following two sections of the file. Immediately after the <AppSpecificProjectConfiguration> tag, you can create additional CreateFolder and/or CopyFile commands to create and populate new folders in the project folder.
<AppSpecificProjectConfiguration Source="Alias"> <!-- Do the following for all projects --> <CopyFile From="$APPCONFIG$\Application Data\ProjectPipeline.xml" To="$PROJECT$\"/> <!-- Create the SmartPlant Isometrics required folders under the project --> <CreateFolder Name="$PROJECT$\Inputs"/> <CreateFolder Name="$PROJECT$\Pipes"/> <CreateFolder Name="$PROJECT$\Data"/> <CreateFolder Name="$PROJECT$\Data\Materials"/> <CreateFolder Name="$PROJECT$\Data\Sketches"/>

Comment
You use the Comment column to enter a text comment for any definition contained in TextColumns and XYColumns collections.

If any text is entered in this field, it is output as a comment--preceded by a "!"--to the relevant data or summary report file. As an example, consider the following:

Declared attribute names are no longer output automatically as a comment in the MLD/WDF If a SmartPlant Isometrics I-Data Integrator project is dependent on this to generate column names in output files, you can now manually set these values in the Comment column instead. Any comment field in an imported MLD is preserved.

Objects
Objects are used to contain and control the properties which define isometric directories, projects and styles. An object contains a set of related properties. For example, the DrawingFrame object contains a set of properties that define the drawing frame. An object can also contain other objects, called sub-objects. For example, the WeldList object contains the following subobjects: FixedLayout VariableLayout UserDefined SummaryFile

An object can contain a collection of other objects, also known as definitions, or a set of identical objects. For example, the MaterialList.SummaryFile object can contain a set of TextColumn objects. Each one defines a single column in the SummaryFile output. Other examples of collections are the AlternativeTexts object, the Drawing.Definitions object and the MaterialList.UserDefined object.

Properties
An object contains a set of related properties. When you change the object properties that belong to a style, it alters the content and appearance of the isometric drawing and report file outputs that are produced when the style is used in those products that use SmartPlant I-Configure. You can display and access objects of a style using the Detail panel (on page 82); however, you can only modify properties by changing values in the Properties panel (on page 80). Depending on the purpose of the property, you can set different values in the Value field of each property. Some properties have a selection list that displays automatically when you double-click the property. Other properties are typed entries--simply click in the Value field to place the cursor, and then type the required value. Some properties are read only and are set automatically by the software when other properties are defined.

Values
The values that object properties or collection definitions possess, are determined by their purpose. For example, a value can be a character or number, a filename and/or file path, an ISOGEN attribute, or some or other keyword used in an ISOGEN input control or output report file. You can clear the value of a property using the Clear command on the shortcut menu (on page 24).

Collections
A collection is a special type of object that holds a set of other objects. The collection has its own properties, which apply to the collection as a whole. For example, the MaterialList.UserDefined object is a collection of XYColumn objects, such as the headers used for the Material list. All collections have a Count property that shows the number of objects in the collection. When you select a collection in the Detail panel (on page 82), the Properties panel (on page 80) displays its definitions.

You can use the Clear (on page 26) command on the shortcut menu to clear the value of a definition. You can use the commands on the shortcut menu to manipulate the order of the definitions (as rows in the collection). To change the value of a definition, do one of the following:

Enable Project
When you first create a project, it is for use with a specific application, such as SmartPlant Isometrics. This is because different applications require different styles to be available, which is determined by the type of isometric and report deliverables the application is required to produce. For example, SmartPlant Isometrics must be capable of providing as-designed or asbuilt piping isometrics, whereas SmartPlant Spoolgen needs to be able to produce isometrics suitable for pipe fabrication in the shop and erection/construction of the spools on-site. 1. Click the project you want to enable in the Project View panel (on page 79). 2. Click File > Enable Project. Alternatively, you can click Enable Project . 3. Select the application that the project is to be enabled for in the Application list. 4. Select the (optional) styles required by checking/un-checking the boxes of those available. The project cannot be re-enabled for itself. In other words, the application that the project was first created for is not shown in the list. Existing projects can be enabled to work with other applications installed on the same workstation. For example, a Project initially created for I-Run, can also be enabled for use with SmartPlant Isometrics. For more information, see the following Enable Project Matrix:

69

Exploring the SmartPlant I-Configure Interface PipMan and Spoolgen 4 projects must be imported into SmartPlant I-Configure before they can be used with any other product that now uses SmartPlant I-Configure to create and manage projects and styles. After the import is complete, the imported project appears in the Project View panel. You can now edit the project and modify its properties using SmartPlant I-Configure. Import of project and style settings is intelligent. If a project folder is replicated-- that is, there is a common structure apart from the drive--then the software modifies the path in the style (OPT or FLS) so that it points to the referenced file in its new location. For example, if you copy a project folder from G:\M5000 to C:\USERS\DATA\COMPANYNAME\MP4000, the software identifies the common root (MP4000). Any file referenced from an OPT file in this path, will have its path modified--G:\MP4000\DATA\CPT.FDF is modified to C:\USERS\DATA\COMPANYNAME\MP4000\DATA\CPT.FDF, provided this file exists.

Imports a style "fragment" into the current style. A style fragment is contained in an XML file that specifies a set of properties to be set and/or a set of members for a collection object, such as a set of TextColumns to be used with MaterialList SummaryFile object. If a style fragment file exists in the same folder as a template file, with the same name and with an .xml extension, it is automatically loaded. This allows the setting of properties specific to the template file, such as margins, list locations, and so on. 1. In the Project View panel, select the style to which the style fragment applies, such as Final-Basic. 2. Click Tools > Import Style Fragment. 3. Browse to the XML file for the style fragment and then click Open. SmartPlant I-Configure reads the content of the style fragment XML file and applies the new properties to the style.

Project Access Rights


Modifies the access rights on a project. Access rights can be password protected--the first person to set the access rights is able to set a password to prevent other users from modifying it. In this way, a project can be set up in such a way that others can see and use it but cannot save changes to the project or any of the styles contained within it.

To avoid situations where the project cannot be modified, such as when the password is forgotten, ensure that you make a note of the password used for each project. See our disclaimer. Once a password is set, the access rights cannot be changed unless the correct password is supplied. If the access rights are set to Write, then all users of the project are allowed to save changes to the style and export the style settings. If set to Read Only, then users may make changes, but these cannot be saved or exported. When you set project access rights to Write using a valid password, any existing password is cleared.

Name
Specifies the project folder name.

Path
Specifies the project folder file path.

Source
Displays the vendor-specific string that was defined when the project was created. For example, a project created by an Intergraph product, such as SmartPlant Isometrics, has the Source set to Intergraph. The Source string is controlled by the SetSource method as described in the ProjectConfig_application.xml file. The Source property allows a vendor to judge whether its software can use the project, and allows the user to identify which projects are created by which vendor software products. Products such as SmartPlant Isometrics and SmartPlant Spoolgen can share a project. This is a read only property and cannot be modified.

Import PipeHeader Attributes


You can import project attributes from the PIPEHEADER-ATTRIBUTES section of a DDF or from the Personal ISOGEN .PIP file used in Project Manager (PipMan) projects. 1. Click Project Defaults and then click the Attributes tab. 2. Click Import on the Attributes tab. 3. In the Browse for Project Data dialog box, select the required input file format from the Files of type list. 4. Navigate to the required file, select it, and then click Open to import. If the Pipe Header attributes are imported, use care when using the External Pipeline attributes file.

Attribute Expressions
You can define an attribute as containing an expression that references other attributes in the same collection and can contain functions. The value of the attribute is then the result of evaluating the expression.
ATTRIBUTE1 = P-100-ABC ATTRIBUTE2 = Left($ATTRIBUTE1$,1) & Right($ATTRIBUTE1$,3)

In the previous example, ATTRIBUTE2 contains an expression. Its value (as seen in the properties dialog box in SmartPlant Spoolgen) is reported as PABC (the left most character plus the three right-hand characters from the string P -100-ABC). A good analogy is a spreadsheet, where a cell can reference the contents of another cell and built in spreadsheet functions. Cells can contain both values and formulas.

Expression Building Rules


References can be made only to other attributes in the same collection of attributes. That is, you cannot reference a pipeline attribute from a component. References to other attributes are made using the $ATTRIBUTE_NAME$ syntax. The ATTRIBUTE_NAME must be the underlying unique name for the attribute, not the DisplayName, which can be redefined by the user. The Expression Builder is used to help build correctly-defined expressions. Expressions are evaluated using the VBScript engine. That is, the syntax of the attribute expression must be valid VBScript syntax and can contain any function supported by that language. If an expression cannot be evaluated, regardless of the reason, the value reported is the original expression.
ATTRIBUTE2 = Left($ATTRIBUTE1$,1) : ATTRIBUTE2 would display P ATTRIBUTE2 = Lft($ATTRIBUTE1$,1) ATTRIBUTE2 would display Lft($ATTRIBUTE1$,1) [Lft is not a valid VBScript function]

Projects If the expression is expecting a string-- for example, the Left function takes a string value for its first argument--then the double quote () must be used around the attribute reference, whether or not the referenced attribute is defined as a string is irrelevant. Valid - Left($ATTRIBUTE1$,1) Invalid - Left($ATTRIBUTE1$,1)

The attribute containing the expression must be defined as a string. All the POD user-defined attributes (ATTRIBUTE1..ATTRIBUTE200, COMPONENT-ATTRIBUTE1..COMPONENTATTRIBUTE10) are suitable for use as expressions.

Specifying That an Attribute Contains an Expression


1. Create a new attribute (see "Add a New Attribute" on page 112) (or edit an existing one) from the project defaults. 2. Select Evaluate Expression

Build becomes available on the dialog box. Although you can type an attribute expression directly into the Default value box, clicking Build displays the Expression Builder.

Projects The expression is evaluated using the values entered for the referenced attributes and the result displayed in the lower text box. In the event that the expression cannot be evaluated, an error message appears in the Result text box, indicating the cause.

In the previous illustration, the following errors are causing the Expression Builder to fail to evaluate: The right bracket on the Left function must be after the $PIPELINE-REFERENCE$. The Left function needs a parameter specifying how many characters to extract from the left most end of the string. The $PIPELINE-REFERENCE$ must be enclosed in quotes.

Projects When you correct the errors and re-run Expression Builder the result is C, the left-most character from the string CS150.

New Workflow Attributes


SmartPlant I-Configure is aware of the new work flow attributes that are added to the POD by SmartPlant Spoolgen when files are imported. These attributes are available in the Expression Builder for SmartPlant Spoolgen projects.

Expressions in the Alias Attribute Editor


The Attribute Editor control (AttributeEditor.ocx, 1.4 or later) supports the editing of expressions (using the Expression Builder defined in the previous section). Clicking an attribute that contains an expression displays the standard edit button:

Styles illustration as an example, changing the True/False settings controls whether the feature of the isometric drawing controlled by each of the Properties shown is displayed on the drawing or not. An object can contain a collection of other objects, which is a set of identical and related objects that are also known as definitions). For example, the MaterialList SummaryFile object can contain a set of TextColumn objects. Each one defines a single column in the SummaryFile output.

In the previous illustration, the properties (AttributeName, Offset and MaxChars ) for the selected MaterialList UserDefined object are stored in a collection called XYColumns(5). The (5) indicates the number of definitions, or objects, in the collection. The Properties panel shows the corresponding properties.

AlternativeTexts
Alternative Text, or AText has it is often called, is a powerful ISOGEN feature that enables any text on the isometric drawing to be easily changed or removed. The feature operates by assigning a unique identification number to each standard text string. The ID number is then referred to whenever a change needs to be done to the text string that the number represents. For a complete list of available ATexts and their default values, see Grouping of AText Listings (on page 133). By definition, a standard text string can either be a single character, a single word, or a group of words. However, some ATexts are, by default, set to an all blank word. The total number of separate standard text strings held by the software in this way is in excess of 300.

Identification Number Format


Because identification numbers are always negative, they are must be preceded by a minus sign. For example, AText -249 (see "The Isometric Drawing Area" on page 133) represents the default word WEST, which is used in the main isometric drawing area.

See also
Examples (on page 132) Specify Alternative Texts (on page 162) Using Alternative Text (on page 130)

Using Alternative Text


AText allows you to substitute your own text terminology or language in place of the standard ISOGEN words on the isometric. To make a word change, you do not have to replace all the standard AText--you can change as little as just one word if that is all is required. Although the AText feature has a considerable degree of built-in flexibility, you must exercise a certain amount of care when defining your own words, particularly in terms of word lengths. As a general rule, newly defined words or word strings should be about equal in length or shorter than the text that is being replaced. Obvious exceptions to this are the cases of the single line headings in the material list region. In this respect, you must take full responsibility for word definition. ISOGEN does not warn you in cases where words are too long and cannot be accommodated in the standard space provided on the isometric. Badly designed AText can lead to undesirable results, such as over-writing or incorrectly positioned text.

Special Characters
The following special characters further extend the functionality of ATexts: The Dollar ($) Sign - The $ character, which is used in ISOGEN to force a new line in regular isometric message text, can also be used with ATexts. However, when using the $ character, it is recommended that you carefully check the output results of each occurrence.

130

SmartPlant I-Configure User's Guide

Styles The Question Mark (?) - The ? character has the following two different uses: In ATexts -210, -211 and -212 (see "The Isometric Drawing Area" on page 133) to suppress the plotting of the single characters normally associated with these ATexts, without switching off their associated facility, as would normally happen when an AText is set to blank. For example, setting AText -210 ? suppresses the F that is normally plotted. It does not completely suppress the plotting of the flange material list part number as would normally happen when an AText item is set to blank. Using the ? character is particularly advantageous on spool isometrics. In some special ATexts at points where the software dynamically inserts information. By default, AText -456 (see "The Isometric Drawing Area" on page 133) is set to DETAIL ?. As a result, the software inserts either a letter or a number, depending upon which system you have specified at the position of the ? character.

The "At" (@) Sign - You can use the @ character to pad out an AText string with trailing blanks. As a result, the text that follows the AText has a series blanks between it and the AText.

Foreign Language Use


AText is particularly beneficial to foreign language users who want to produce isometrics containing text in their native language. However, there are restrictions governing which characters are permissible. Those restrictions are outlined in The Usable Character Set.

The Usable Character Set


You can only use the following standard English and special purpose characters in AText definitions: Upper- or lower-case letters in the range A to Z. Numeric characters in the range 0 to 9 inclusive. A blank space character. The following special purpose symbols: * + - . , : [ ] ( ) # ' < > = | & %

Other foreign language characters, such as those used in the Cyrillic, Greek, or Chinese alphabets are excluded, as are specially accentuated characters, such as , , , and so on.

AText and the Drawing Frame Symbols


The AText feature goes further than just controlling text characters. The standard symbols appearing in the line summary area across the bottom of the standard ISOGEN drawing frame, viz. for shop weld, field weld, and so on through traced pipe, can all be suppressed when they are not required by setting their associated ATexts to blank.

Composite Text Messages


Composite text messages are made up of more than one text item and the composition is done by ISOGEN automatically. Such messages can be composed in either of the following two ways: By combining two or more related ATexts By combining AText and an associated design database attribute value 131

SmartPlant I-Configure User's Guide

Styles Generally, in those cases where AText operates together with design database attribute information to form a composite message, setting the AText part to blank to suppress the plotting of it causes suppression of the attribute text also. For example, if the composite message BATCH REF: 12/100A/C in the title block area needs to be completely suppressed, then setting AText -252, which contains the words BATCH REF, to blank causes both this and the attribute part, 12/100A/C, not to be plotted.

See also
Examples (on page 132) Grouping of ATexts Listings (see "Grouping of AText Listings" on page 133)

Examples
The following are some examples of standard ATexts: The material list heading ERECTION MATERIALS. The isometric connection messages CONN. TO and CONT. ON in the main drawing area. The BATCH REF and PIPING SPEC headings in the title block area.

Each of these are default AText words that are programmed in by ISOGEN but which you can re-program, if required, as explained in the following examples.

Example 1: ERECTION MATERIALS


You can find ERECTION MATERIALS as AText -310 (see "The Plotted Material and Cut Pipe List Heading Texts" on page 142). To change the default heading (ERECTION MATERIALS) to CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS, the entry - 310 CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS must appear in the appropriate data input file.

Example 2: CONN.TO
CONN TO. is an example of a composite message that is used at locations where pipelines are connected to equipment nozzles. You can find it as AText -208 (see "The Isometric Drawing Area" on page 133). To change the message CONN. TO to JOIN TO, the entry -208 JOIN TO must appear in the appropriate data input file. Information regarding the joined to component, that is, the nozzle name as extracted from the design database, is automatically appended to the AText by ISOGEN to form a composite message, such as JOIN TO D45-NZ12.

Example 3: BATCH REF


BATCH REF is another composite message example--AText -252 (see "The Title Block/Drawing Frame Areas" on page 150). The message is used to convey plant zone or area information in the title block area of the isometric where the contents of the BATCH (AREA) type record in the pipeline input data file is automatically appended by ISOGEN. An example of this kind of message is BATCH REF : AR-A/TF/N12. To remove the batch reference entry from the isometric, set the AText entry in the input data file (IDF) to blank, thus: -252

132

SmartPlant I-Configure User's Guide

Styles Doing so removes the entire composite message from the isometric, both the AText BATCH REF : part and the following design database attribute that holds the batch reference information.

Grouping of AText Listings


All the AText listings are logically grouped into the following isometric drawing regions: The main Isometric Drawing Area (see "The Isometric Drawing Area" on page 133) Plotted Material List and Cut List (see "The Plotted Material And Cut Pipe List Heading Texts" on page 142) Specification Change indication (on page 149) Title Block/Drawing Frame (see "The Title Block/Drawing Frame Areas" on page 150) Line Summary Area (see "The Line Summary Area" on page 152) Printed Material List (see "The Printed Material List" on page 154) Weld Box Summary (see "The Weld Box Summary" on page 154) Flat Spools and Flange Rotation text (see "Flat Spools and Flange Rotation" on page 156) Compipe Material Control link (see "The COMPIPE Material Control Links" on page 157) SPOOLGEN (FFISYS) Screen Display (on page 157) Reference Plane System (on page 161)

Used at flange positions in vertical pipe legs to optionally indicate the elevation coordinate of the flange connection face. The special characters ? and $ can be combined with this AText to allow you to control the final form of the output text. ? is used to cause the insertion of elevation value, and $ forces a new line of text. For example, a setting of ?$FLANGE FACE produces EL +22613 FLANGE FACE. Note that here the EL characters are obtained by the software also using AText -205 automatically. Used to provide a cross-reference message for detail sketches. This AText appears on the drawing part of the isometric. The sketch identifying number or letter is edited in by the software at the ? position. Used to identify miter welds. The software edits in the miter angle into the text string at the ? position which can be positioned anywhere in the string. Used to indicate the nominal size for metric bore units.

SpoolIDSize
Controls the number of characters used for the size of circle, double circle and ellipse enclosure styles. The default is 2, and the valid entries are from 1 to 8 characters, or set to Variable, which dynamically sizes the enclosure. The following example shows the default size of 2 used for an circle enclosure.

The number of characters defines the minimum size that the circle, double circle and ellipse are drawn at. If there are more characters than the value set, the enclosure dynamically adjusts to suit. Setting the size to Variable, allows the circle, double circle and ellipse, to be smaller than the default of 2 characters, but again dynamically adjust to suit the number of characters.

SpoolIDEnclosureStyle
Allows the physical size of the SpoolIDEnclosure to be increased. This is achieved by specifying a mixture of new line and blank character indicators that are used by the software to 'pad- out' the SpoolIDEnclosure record to effectively increase the size of the enclosure. The size of the text (set by TextSize property) displayed within any increased size enclosure is not be increased in size. The data string associated with each identifier consists of a combination of @, $ and ? characters. The @ character is used to signal a blank (space) requirement. The $ character is used to signal a new line requirement. The ? character is used to indicate where the actual data from the declared record should be located in the 'padded-out' record.

TapBranchSuppression
Tapped branch connections can sometimes be difficult to draw clearly on an isometric, particularly where a number of fittings are in close proximity. ISOGEN suppresses the drawing of tapped branches for particular components. This allows the alternative of using a detailed sketch to show branch connections instead. Where tapped branches have been suppressed, part numbers and weld numbers can still be output on the isometric. The suppressed components are defined by either by component type SKEY--such as VALVEVB**-- or component type as follows: ALL - Suppress the output of all tapped branches. PIPE - Suppress the output of all tapped branches on pipe. FITTING - Suppress the output of all tapped branches on fittings. FLANGE - Suppress the output of all tapped branches on flanges. VALVE - Suppress the output of all tapped branches on valves. INSTRUMENT - Suppress the output of all tapped branches on instruments.

MaterialList UserDefined Object


The MaterialList UserDefined object contains the properties defining the alternative Style3 material list. This type of list is created and plotted into a drawing frame that contains a preexisting table (with header texts) into which the material list is plotted. A Style3 material list is only allowed with a backing sheet. That is, if an ISOGEN generated drawing frame is in use, only Style 1 and Style2 are available. The MaterialList UserDefined object has several sub-objects and one collection: OneSection (see "MaterialList UserDefined OneSection Object" on page 380) TwoSection (see "MaterialList UserDefined TwoSection Object" on page 382) ThreeSection (see "MaterialList UserDefined ThreeSection Object" on page 385) RemarksBox (see "MaterialList UserDefined RemarksBox Object" on page 389) SpoolTable (see "MaterialList UserDefined SpoolTable Object" on page 391) XYColumns (see "CutList UserDefined XYColumns Collection" on page 448)

These objects are used to hold the data defining the various different types of Style3 list. These basically break down to how many sections there are plotted (certain options are not available in certain list types). Sensible defaults exist for each type of list, so each sub (section) object can be set up automatically, allowing you to select between them.

Styles OutputLinesTube Used in conjunction with AText -537 to control the number of lines used for output of pipe lengths. The form of length output on the material list is controlled by the LinearQuantityStyle property; however, in order to save space, it is possible to have a two line format. By default, the OutputLinesTube property is set to 1, which uses the existing LinearQuantityStyle property. If AText -537 is being used, then the OutputLinesTube property must be set to 2. AText -537 is used to indicate the new line by using the $ and the setting for the units indication to be output, as shown in the following example: -537$m -537$mm -537$FT -537$FT 13.5m 13500mm 19.5 Ft 13.5Ft (instead of 13.5') m mm Ft Ft (instead of 13.5')

Do not use AText -537 if pipe quantities are requested in Ft-Ins (13'-5") units. If set, this AText takes over control of the Units indication output on all styles of material list, as well as allowing a new line indicator to force two line output. If it is not set, then normal defaults apply.

COMPONENT-INFORMATION-FILE
For each component entry, the CIF holds the following items of information: Design contractor's item code (the Item code in the input Piping data file). Main and secondary component bores. Main and secondary Thickness/Ratings. Fabricator's item code. Fabricator's material description. Component weight.

This is the maximum amount of information that can be held for each component. What actually appears depends upon what facilities are actually being used. The structure/layout of the CIF file is defined by the COMPONENT-INFORMATION-FILE Section of the FUNCTION DEFINITION FILE.

CIF Rules Summary


1. Weight data in the CIF takes precedence over weights in the Piping data file; however, in the event of missing values, SmartPlant Spoolgen can supplement the data in the CIF by searching the Piping data file. 2. I the C of G facility is to be used then component weight information must be available in either the CIF or the Piping data files. 3. Several ITEM-CODE-IDENTIFIER entries can be made in the CIF to cater for a variety of different Design Contractor or Fabricator item codes. (The actual ones to be used are specified in the COMPONENT- INFORMATION-SELECTION section of the FDF file). 4. For those who want to handle projects with Metric bore Piping data files and Imperial bore Piping data files, if required, two sets of N.S. and N.S.SEC information can be included in a CIF, with both projects sharing the one CIF. However, where this is done, two separate FDFs are required in order to specify the required N.S. to be used on a particular project.

Item Codes in the CIF


Item codes for components in the CIF can be constructed (and hence specified) in two different ways, thus: 1. In the form of unique codes with built-in bore information: E.g. E-90-CS1-40:3 - this is an elbow of 3" bore E-90-CS1-40:4 - this is the same elbow, but of 4" bore R-C-CS1-40:4X3 - this is a concentric reducer of bore 4" X 3". This type of Item code does not need N.S. and N.S.SEC data fields to specify the bore information because this is built-in to the Item code. 1. Codes having separate bores: E.g.

472

SmartPlant I-Configure User's Guide

Styles E-90-CS1-40 R-C-CS1-40 This type of Item code does need N.S. and N.S.SEC data fields to completely identify the component. There are no rules as to whom should use which of the two types of item code construction. Some Design contractors use the first type.

Input Data Formats


Inch bores - You can type 1/2, 0.1/2, 0.5, 1, 1.0, 1.1/2, 1.5, 2, 10 (1 1/2 is also permitted for 1). mm bores - You can type. 50 or 50.0. Weights - You can type. 25 or 25.0

Units Selection Process


Usually, it is expected that the units' settings in OS 41 and the FDF match, as they should do. However, if they do not match, the following sequence is followed. Units for Weights & Lengths - The units specified in OS 41 are regarded as the master units. For example, if OS 41 specifies weights in LBS but the weights in the CIF are kgs, then all kgs values are converted to lbs. on output. A similar procedure is applied to length units. Units for N.S. - The unit settings in the FDF and Piping data file must be the same. A check is performed between the N.S. units as defined by O.S.41 and the UNITS-BORE attribute in the FDF. If they differ, the run is terminated with Error Code 35:1126.

WEIGHT/COFG-SUMMARY-FILE Section
This FDF Section defines the required content and layout structure of the weight and center of gravity printed output summary file. The input definition for this section is in three separate parts:

SUMMARY-FILES-TITLES
The section heading SUMMARY-FILE-TITLES is followed by the title data. There are two different types of title data information items: 1. Variable user-defined descriptive title text, such as PROJECT NO. or AREA REF. 2. Fixed data items. These are standard keywords or equivalent I/D numbers that are used to describe a required data field. They are written inside single quote marks ( ' ' ) to distinguish them from the variable user-defined title text. The two types are used together to make-up the required file heading. The following rules apply to the title data section SUMMARY-FILE-TITLES text: Both user-defined descriptive title text and fixed keyword text are positioned in the output file on the exact line and in the column position at which they are input. User-defined descriptive title text can be written in upper- or lower- case characters and is re-produced as specified in this respect. Fixed data items can be defined either as keywords written in upper-case characters and enclosed in single quotes, or can be represented by their standard text record numbers (inside single quotes). Empty lines for spacing purposes are created by the instruction Blank. Use the characters ' ' in conjunction with the word PAGE to obtain page numbers. For example, PAGE ' ' automatically produces PAGE 1, PAGE 2, and so on, at the top of each printed output page.

SUMMARY-FILE-COLUMN-HEADINGS
The section heading SUMMARY-FILE-COLUMN-HEADINGS is followed by the column headings data (this section is optional). All column headings data are reported in the output file exactly as it is specified in the FDF. The text should be positioned to suit the data items layout that follows it.

SUMMARY-FILE-DATA-ITEMS
The section heading SUMMARY-FILE-DATA-ITEMS is followed by the data item entries. Each data item entry in this part of the FDF is input using either two, three, or five parameters, depending on the type of data item being specified. C of G with a vertical layout uses three parameters. C of G with a horizontal layout uses five parameters. All others including weight output use two parameters.

The first part is a keyword that must be enclosed in single quotes ( ' ' ). Typical entries would appear like this:

Most keywords have an equivalent numeric identifier which can be used as an alternative to the text. For example, the numeric equivalent of PIPELINE-REFERENCE is -6. Numbers, when used, must also be enclosed by single quotes ' '.

Bar Codes
To output a bar code on the isometric, such as the following example for the pipeline reference, you must create an attribute.

1. In the DFAttributes collection, create an attribute:

SmartPlant I-Configure User's Guide

563

Techniques 2. Set the following properties as indicated: AttributeName (on page 548) to Pipeline Reference. BarCode (on page 342) to one of the valid codes (1,2 or 3). CharHeight (on page 548) to appropriate value. Font (on page 548) to the font that matches the bar code value (Bar Code 39, Bar Code 25, Bar Code 25 Interleaved). XPos (on page 548) to the X position for start of bar code. YPos (on page 548) to the Y position for the start of bar code.

The required bar code must be installed in your system fonts directory. For AutoCAD users, the backing sheet must have the bar code font defined in it.

See also
AutoCAD Barcode (on page 564) DFAttributes Collection (on page 547)

AutoCAD Barcode
To add the barcode font to an AutoCAD backing sheet, open the DWG, or DXF file and add a new text style.

Style Name - Set the style name to the name of the font file without the extension. In the example shown, this is Bar39.ttf. Ensure that the style name matches the filename specified in the ISOGEN font information file (FONTSTD.FIF)
ISOGEN-FONT 151 FAMILY T DESCRIPTION Bar Code 39 FILENAME BAR39.ttf

564

SmartPlant I-Configure User's Guide

Techniques Font Name - Select the font name in the list, and must be set to the required font. In the example shown, this is Bar Code 39. If the backing sheet is a DWG file, the backing sheet just needs saving. However, if it is a DXF file, then the file must be saved as DXF release12 format. Use a text editor to edit the DXF file by finding the second occurrence of the text style name (Bar39) and change the txt entry following that to the font name (Bar Code 39). These actions are necessary because of restrictions in SmartPlant Spoolgen, which cannot handle DXF files later that AutoCAD Release 12. Also, the DXFOUT routine in AutoCAD for a Release 12 version DXF does not allow references to True type fonts to be made; they are changed to txt.

External Data
Used to load data from an external data source, such as a database, on import. The external data configuration (GED Configuration) properties and External Data on Import on the Project Defaults dialog box need to be set lo allow the external data to be loaded on import. You must also define the external data source and create an XML configuration file, which defines the external data.

See also
External Data Source (on page 566) GED Configuration (on page 102) Project Defaults (on page 37) XML Configuration File (on page 567)

External Data Source


External data can be in any ODBC compliant form. In order to use the data source, you must Control Panel to define a Data Source Name (DSN). In Windows 2000, for example, click Start> Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Data Sources.

In the previous illustration, PROJECT1 is the DSN name and has been set up as a Microsoft Excel data source.

566

SmartPlant I-Configure User's Guide

Techniques The type of data that is linked to depends on the ODBC database drivers currently installed on the machine. Drivers for Access, Excel, SQL Server and Oracle databases are commonly available. Setting up a new DSN is dependent on the database being set-up, but in each case, the DSN is given a name and this name is used in the XML Configuration file referenced by the software which uses it.

XML Configuration File


The following example shows the basic structure of the XML configuration file:
<EXTERNAL-DATA Version="POS3"> <PIPELINE> <!Data specifying how to retrieve pipeline data --> (see "Pipeline Data" on page 567) </PIPELINE> <COMPONENT> <!Data specifying how to retrieve component data --> (see "Component and Information Data" on page 569) </COMPONENT> <INFORMATION> <!Data specifying how to retr ieve Information data --> (see "Component and Information Data" on page 569) </ INFORMATION> </EXTERNAL-DATA>

Multiple PIPELINE, COMPONENT and INFORMATION entries are permitted in the configuration file.

Macros
A macro can appear in the SQL or FILTER tags defined below. A macro is a string that is substituted at run time with a value taken from the current open POD (Pipeline object data) file. A macro starts and finishes with a $ character. Macros take the general form $OBJECT.PROPERTY_OR_ATTRIBUTE$. For example, $P.PIPELINE-REFERENCE$ means the Pipeline object PIPELINE-REFERENCE attribute. The following macros are available to reference PODFILE objects: $P = PIPELINE ... $P.PIPELINE-REFERENCE = PIPELINE PIPELINE-REFERENCE ATTRIBUTE $C = COMPONENT ... $C.PIPING-SPEC = COMPONENT PIPING-SPEC ATTRIBUTE $M = MATERIAL ... $M.ItemCode = MATERIAL ItemCode property $I = INFORMATION ... $I.MESSAGE-TEXT = MESSAGE-TEXT ATTRIBUTE

Techniques

Pipeline Data
Within the <PIPELINE> tags, the following tags can appear.

<DSN>
The <DSN> tag contains the name of the DSN created to point to the database containing the external data. For example:
<DSN> PROJECT1 </DSN

<SQL>
The <SQL> tag contains the definition of a query to be executed against the DSN. It is a string that can contain macros that at run time are substituted with the value of the specified property or attribute. For example, the following table (named PIPEDATA), contains data for two pipelines.

The <SQL> tag must be specified so as to create a query that can identify which row of the table contains the data to be imported into the application. Typically this is done using the PIPELINEREFERENCE property, as shown in the following example:
<SQL> SELECT * FROM PIPEDATA WHERE PIPELINE = $P.PIPELINEREFERENCE$ </SQL>

In the previous example, PIPEDATA is the name of the table in the external database. In a POD file, with the PIPELINE-REFERENCE attribute set to APL-BUG-1, the software generates the following query and returns one row of data.
SELECT * FROM PIPEDATA WHERE PIPELINE = 'APL-BUG-1'

White space (tabs, carriage returns, spaces) are not important in the <SQL> tag. In SmartPlant Spoolgen, pipeline properties are referred to by the PCF attribute name to which they are exported.

<EXTERNAL-MAP>
There can be any number of these tags. Each one defines the SmartPlant Spoolgen pipeline attribute that is to receive data, and the name of the field (column) in the row returned by the query that contains the data. The SmartPlant Spoolgen pipeline attribute can be referred to by either its ISOGEN attribute or Display Name as defined by the SmartPlant I-Configure in the project properties. The following example uses SmartPlant Spoolgen pipeline attribute - Isogen attribute.
<EXTERNAL-MAP <EXTERNAL-MAP <EXTERNAL-MAP <EXTERNAL-MAP <EXTERNAL-MAP Name="PROJECT-IDENTIFIER" ExternalName="Project ID" /> Name="AREA" ExternalName="AREA" /> Name="ATTRIBUTE1" ExternalName="Client" /> Name="ATTRIBUTE2" ExternalName="Site" /> Name="ATTRIBUTE3" ExternalName="Designer" />

568

SmartPlant I-Configure User's Guide

Techniques The data in the previous example defines a mapping between the five SmartPlant Spoolgen attributes specified in the Isogen Attribute field and the column in the external data specified by the ExternalName field. The next example uses SmartPlant Spoolgen pipeline attribute - DisplayName
<EXTERNAL-MAP ID" /> <EXTERNAL-MAP <EXTERNAL-MAP <EXTERNAL-MAP <EXTERNAL-MAP DisplayName="ProjectIdentifier" ExternalName="Project DisplayName="Batch/Area" ExternalName="AREA" /> DisplayName="Client" ExternalName="Client" /> DisplayName="SiteRef" ExternalName="Site" /> DisplayName="Designer" ExternalName="Designer" />

The data in this example defines a mapping between the five SmartPlant Spoolgen attributes specified in the DisplayName field and the column in the external data specified by the ExternalName field.

Component and Information Data


The structure of the <COMPONENT> and <INFORMATION> tags is the same and is largely identical to the pipeline data. However, in addition to the <SQL> tag there is a <FILTER> tag, which defines a supplementary filter to be applied at each component. The query in the <SQL> tag is executed once, at the onset of the Get External Data command. It is used to specify a set of data relating to all the components in the pipeline and can return more than one row. Typically the PIPELINE-REFERENCE property is specified in a $P.PIPELINE-REFERENCE$ macro in this query.
<SQL> <!-- Query is executed once --> SELECT * FROM COMPDATA WHERE PIPELINE = '$P.PIPELINE-REFERENCE$' </SQL>

COMPDATA is the name of the table in the external database.

SmartPlant I-Configure User's Guide

569

Techniques The <FILTER> tag is built up from external field names and values that allow a single row in the set of records defined by the <SQL> query to be identified. For example, the following table contains component data:

The following query, then, returns three records;


SELECT * FROM COMPDATA WHERE PIPELINE=APL -BUG-1

If you define the following filter expression, the software evaluates the expression at each component in the iso file. Any component with REPEAT-PART-NUMBER = 1 matches row 1 only.
<FILTER> PART-NO = '$C.REPEAT-PART-NUMBER </FILTER>

You can use all Component, ComponentKeyPoint, ComponentLeg and Material properties and attributes in filter expressions. For example, the component ItemCode is a property of the material with which the component is associated. A filter of this form can be used to match a row in the external data with the specific component.
<FILTER> IC = '$M.ITEMCODE </FILTER>

Welding
Weld Lists
There are four types of plotted weld list: 1. Fixed original 2. Fixed operations box 3. Variable layout 4. User-defined Setting the ActiveList property on the WeldList object controls this. If this property is set to Fixed, then the ShowOperationsBox property on the FixedLayout object below the Weldlist object is used to control whether it is an Original or Operations box weld list. If the property is set to Variable, then the data for the VariableLayout object needs to be set. If this property is set to User defined, then the data for the Userdefined object needs to be set. Also, for the user-defined weld list there must be a backing sheet, which has the columns and headings required for the weld list.

The properties on the WeldList object need to be set for all types of weld lists, as these control the number of welds at special situations. The VariableLayout object's HeaderLines property sets up the text header line for the variable layout, and the contents (MaterialList VariableLayout TextColumns ) define to ISOGEN the data, start column, and justification on the horizontal line. The UserDefined object's properties and contents (XYColumns collection) define to ISOGEN how the data is positioned on the isometric, such that it lines up with the columns on the backing sheet. The properties define the start position, layout, and font for the data, and the XYColumns collection stores each data item to be output.

If this property is set to Fixed, then the Content property on the FixedLayout object below the CutList object is used to control whether it is a Standard or Extended Fixed cut list. If this property is set to Userdefined, then the data for the Userdefined object needs to be set.

The properties on the CutList object need to be set for all types of material list If the user-defined material list is being defined, then there must be a backing sheet, which has the columns and headings required for the Cut list. The UserDefined object's properties and contents (XYColumns Collection) define for ISOGEN how the data is positioned on the isometric, such that it lines up with the columns on the backing sheet. The properties define the start position, layout, and font for the data, and the XYColumns collection stores each data item to be output. Printed Cut list - There are two types of printed cut list: (1). Standard and (2). Userdefined. This is controlled by the UserDefined property on the SummaryFile object. If set to False then the old standard cut list is printed. If set to True, then the-user defined cut list specified by the properties and contents of the SummaryFile object is printed. The Path, Append, and Enable properties are used for both types of printed list.

Dynamic File Naming


It is possible to pre-process the ISOGEN.fls files to substitute a macro for one of the PCF header attributes taken from the current file. The following PCF attributes are supported in macros:

PCF Attribute
$PIPELINE-REFERENCE$ $REVISION$ $PROJECT-IDENTIFIER$ $PIPING-SPEC$

Description/Comment
Pipeline reference Revision Applies to the PROJECT-IDENTIFIER attribute in the PCF/IDF, not the SmartPlant I-Configure project. Piping specification

$INPUT-FILE$ Name of input file without the extension. For example, in the Supplementary ReportFiles ISOGENFiles collection you can use the $PIPELINE-REFERENCE$ to set the FilePath as shown in the following illustration:

The following is written in the ISOGEN.fls file: CENTRELINE/INSULATIONLENGTH WEIGHT/COFG-SUMMARYAPPEND C:\IsoDir\Project\Final\$PIPELINEREFERENCE$-CL.TXT C:\IsoDir\Project\Final\Reports\$PIPELINEREFERENCE$-COG.TXT

If the required attribute is not present in the PCF/IDF, then the attribute NAME is substituted. System environment variables such as TEMP, USERNAME or COMPUTERNAME can be used in folder or file paths for report files.

Flange Rotation
When flanges are connected it is normal practice to position the flange so the bolt holes are off center, as shown in the following illustration.

The flange rotation function is provided so that the isometric generates a message showing the angle the flange needs to be rotated when the flange is connected to a pipe that is not moving in a primary direction. You can control if ISOGEN generates a message when a flange rotation angle is required, and the type of enclosure style (if any) to include for the message. This is done by setting the ShowFlangeRotation on the Drawing Content object and FlangeRotationStyle properties on the Drawing Format object. Flange rotations are caused by pipe directions moving in a skew direction instead of directly in a principle plane. For example, if a pipe direction (as viewed on the face of the flange - see rules below) is Up, and at the elbow, then turns to move North + West at an angle of, say, 45 degrees, then the North + West section is said to be in a skew.

584

SmartPlant I-Configure User's Guide

Techniques

Flange Rotation Rules


Rules that are followed when determining the rotation angle. 1. Always look at the flange face.

2. Set the flange to the normal OFF CENTRES position with respect to the first change in direction that is found by moving along the spool away from the flange being positioned. This can be one of the following: a. The next leg of the spool following a bend / elbow. b. A branch connection. c. A flange at the other end of the spool if it is a straight pipe. d. A component direction or a branch direction that is specifically identified by SmartPlant Spoolgen, using one of the ATexts -487 to -491. These are for use on spools where the only suitable reference plane is not covered by a), b), or c) previously discussed.
AText ID Number -487 Default Text Purpose

*** REFERENCE FLAT ***

Used to identify which item is to be used as a reference plane for any output flange rotation angle.

-488 -489 -490 -491 -492

*** REFERENCE SPINDLE *** *** REFERENCE SUPPORT *** *** REFERENCE BRANCH *** *** REFERENCE WINDOW *** FLAT DIRECTION Used to point to any 2D or 3D triangles on flat spool isometrics.

-493 -494 -495 -496 -497

SPINDLE DIRECTION SUPPORT DIRECTION BRANCH DIRECTION WINDOW DIRECTION FLANGE ROTATION ? (The calculated angle is output where the ? character is located).

Used to identify all flange rotation angles on the plotted part of a flat spool drawing. 1. Having set the flange off center to the identified reference plane, rotate the flange in a clockwise direction by the angle indicated.

SmartPlant I-Configure User's Guide

585

Techniques All flange rotation angles are calculated (with all of the necessary compensations to accommodate the pipe movements) such that they are all in the clockwise direction.

Outputting a Table of Flange Rotations


It is possible to generate a table of flanges and the associated flange rotation. This is achieved by using the DFTableAttributes collection to set up a table to output the flange part number and flange rotation angle. The material list must be set to non-accumulation

Location Points
Location points are used to output a coordinate offset to the nearest main steelwork column or floor. The location point is positioned in the design system, and the steelwork grid and floor levels are defined in the Supplementary AdditionalData object The plotted symbol used for the location point is user-definable. The default is shown in the following illustration.

The number is only output if more than one location point is used on the drawing. The associated text is controlled by AText - 471, the default being LOCATION POINT? where the ? character is the cross-reference number when more than one location point is used.
