New Pipe Deafult Keywords in SBP_MODEL_DEF

Description
Two new default keywords are introcuded in the SBP_MODEL_DEF default file.
If the spool contains more than 30 materials the pipe is correctly splitted and transferred to
PPDB, but the material table on the pipe sketch will not be complete. A new keyword
MATERIAL_LIST_WARNING is introduced to get a waring in the ready function of pipe
modelling in such cases. Otherwise the warning will be displayed in pipe splitting.
The accepted values are

NO/OFF (system default)


No warning in pipe ready function if a spool contains more than 30 materials.

YES/ON
Warning given in pipe ready function if a spool contains more than 30 materials.

1993-2005 AVEVA AB

Occationally a pipe obejct gets currupted, eg contains parts with no length or undefined
vectors. To remove such parts the recover pipe option in sp307 can be used. A new
keyword RECOVER_AND_SAVE has been introduced to check the pipe object every time it
is saved.
The accepted values are

NO/OFF (system default)


No check of the pipe object when it is saved.

YES/ON
The recover pipe function is executed every time a pipe object is saved.

Benefits
Possibility to override system defaults.

Compatibility Constraints
None.

User Defined Connection Table

Description
When parts are connected to each other, the material codes of the components are checked
against each other. The rules about which material can connect to each other are defined in
a table with material codes 1-10 as both row and column index.
The table can be user defined via a text file created by the user.The file contains 3 different
record types. A logical name SBP_CMP_CONN_DEF, tells the program the file name.

Benefits
Possibility to override system defaults.

Compatibility Constraints
None.

performance has been poor. To improve the performance disable Description checkbox
before starting to search. This will speed up the search.

Benefits
Faster search for standard structures.

Compatibility Constraints
None.

General Bar Usage in TDM Projects

Description
Prior to this service pack a general bar cross-section was stored in SBD_VOLUME but read
from SBE_GENVOLDB. This has little or no relevance to a project using native Tribon
databanks because these two databanks normally points to the same physical databank.
However, in a TDM project, these databanks are different and it has been necessary to
manually copy the cross-section from SBD_VOLUME to SBE_GENVOLDB. This
inconvenience is now eliminated and the cross-section is stored in SBE_GENVOLDB
meaning that it is no longer needed to perform a manual copy.

Benefits
Use of general bars in TDM projects.

Compatibility Constraints

1993-2005 AVEVA AB

Crossections are now stored in SBE_GENVOLDB when earlier stored in SBD_VOLUME.

Rename Prefix of Penetration in Cable


Modelling

Description
The real and imaginary penetration pull down menus in Cable Modelling are extended with
functionality to rename a prefix of a penetration. The user keys in two prefixes: one to
search for and one to exchange to. All prefixes are renamed after confirmation.

Benefits
It is easier to rename many penetrations if it is only the first part of the name that shall be
exchanged.

Compatibility Constraints
None.

Rename Penetrations at the Same Time as


Cableways in Cable Modelling

Description
The group functionality to rename many cableways simultaneously in Cable Modelling is
extended. Penetrations, with the same name as the original cableway, will have the same
new name as the corresponding cableway if the new default value
CW_GROUP_RENAME_PNTR is set to 1.

Benefits
Easier to rename penetration if they are following the cableway names.

Compatibility Constraints
None.

Move Connection to a New Position in Cable


Modelling

Description
A new function to move a connection or end of cableway part in an easy way is
implemented. The material is handled but no cables are allowed to be routed on affected
parts.

Benefits
Connection can be moved with material.

Modify Equipment Connection is Possible in


Cable Background Modelling

Description
It is possible to update the equipment connection by using cable background routing.
The default behaviour is that it is not possible to change a connection. If the new default
value CAB_BG_DISCONN_EQ is set to 1 or YES, then the ordinary way to connect to an
equipment will disconnect the old equipment first and then connect to the new equipment
without any warning.

Benefits
Updating equipment information can be handled in background.

Vitesse Can Create Cable Markpoint

Description
A new function cable_markpoint_set(Name of markpoint) is added to the Tribon vitesse
interface. The name of the markpoint is a real penetration that is passed by the cable route.
This function, in combination with existing data extraction commands, gives a big possibility
to create a simple handling of markpoints
