PDS TUTORIALS: Model Revision (Revise Existing Pipelines)

.

In this section you will learn how to revise existing pipelines.

Topics

PDS COPY PIPING

Copy Piping copies an existing pipeline or a group of components to a specified location in the model. Select Placement from the Piping pull-down menu.

PDS ROTATE PIPING

Rotate Piping rotates existing piping in the active model. You can rotate a pipeline or the elements defined by the active group by a specified angle of rotation. Select Revise Component from the Piping pull-down menu.

PDS COPY & ROTATE PIPING

Copy and Rotate Piping places a rotated copy of an existing pipeline or group of components. Select Placement from the Piping pull-down menu.

PDS MIRROR PIPING

Mirror Piping mirrors existing piping to a specified location in the active model. Select Revise Group from the Piping pull-down menu.

PDS COPY & MIRROR PIPING

Copy and Mirror Piping creates a mirrored copy of an existing pipeline or group of components. Select Placement from the Piping pull-down menu.

PDS MOVE PIPING

Move Piping moves an entire pipeline or move the elements defined by the active group to a specified location. Select Revise Group from the Piping pull-down menu.

PDS MOVE PIPE RUN

Move Pipe Run moves a specified pipe run to a new location while maintaining the connectivity to the connecting pipe runs in the piping segment. Select Revise Group from the Piping pull-down menu.

PDS MOVE PIPELINE END

Move Pipeline End moves a pipeline's end point to a new location. Select Placement from the Piping pull-down menu.

PDS REPLACE PIPING

Replace Piping provides you with the ability to replace all the piping commodities of a specific name within a working group with a different commodity name and/or commodity option. Select Revise Group from the Piping pull-down menu.

PDS RECONSTRUCT PIPING

Reconstruct Piping reconstructs a specified part of the model to update the graphical representation and the alphanumeric data associated with that piping, based on changes in the Piping Design RDB, the P&ID MDB, or the piping segment data in the model. Select Revise Group from the Piping pull-down menu.
