Terminology Click

To use a mouse or key combination to pick an item that begins an action. For example, Click Apply to save the changes.

Select

To mark an item by highlighting it with key combinations or by picking it with your cursor. Selecting does not initiate an action. After selecting an item, you click the action you want to affect the item. For example, Select the file original.dat from the list box, then click Delete to remove it from the directory. In addition, you would select items to define parameters, such as selecting toggle buttons. This also applies to selecting graphic elements from the design file. For example, Select the line string to define the graphic template.

Tentative-select

To place a tentative point on an existing graphic element in a design file. If you are using the CLIX operating system, you tentative-select by double-clicking with a mouse or pressing on a hand-held cursor. If you are using the Windows NT operating system, you tentative-select by pressing a leftbutton, right-button chord.

Double-click

To select and execute a command by clicking the mouse or hand-held cursor button twice in rapid succession. This term implies that you are clicking the data button () as part of a menu or dialog box action. For example, Double-click on the file original.dat to load it into the new surface.

Drag

To press and hold the data button () while moving the mouse or hand-held cursor.

Type

To key a character string into a text box.

Key in

To type in data and press ENTER to enter the data and execute the default action. In a dialog box, pressing TAB after keying in data will enter the data and move the cursor to the next field.

The PDS Isometric Extraction Software creates piping isometric drawings from 3-D piping models created by the PDS modeling packages.

1-2

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

The software consists of two principal components: ISOGEN, which draws the piping isometric and places it in a MicroStation design file and Intergraph 3-D software packages which create input for ISOGEN and perform other functions necessary in final drawing creation. The software allows you to extract isometrics from a 3-D plant model: single isometrics interactively or multiple isometrics in a batch mode. The ISOGEN software is designed to be flexible because drawing practices vary from one company to another. The following features of Intergraph’s isometric extraction package allow you to specify drawing format: User-controlled ISOGEN option switches

The capability to use an alternate or foreign text

A large set of Intergraph option switches

User-controlled attribute breaks shown on drawings

A flexible method for generating notes

Attribute-driven symbology (solid or dotted lines)

User-defined component symbology

User-controlled mapping of attributes to the title block. In addition to the isometric drawing, the software also generates several nongraphic outputs, the most important of which is a completely user-definable MTO neutral file. This neutral file is extremely useful for those who want to couple a material control system with Intergraph’s 3-D modeling software. The above features are collectively referred to as software customization and are dealt with at length in this document. You will find reference information needed for customization in the appendices.

Introduction to ISOGEN 1 - 3

1.1 Overview of Isometric Extraction __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This section outlines the software components and how they are organized for interactively extracting isometrics.

1.1.1 The Intergraph Interface to ISOGEN __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The core software module in isometric extraction (both interactive and batch) is the ISOGEN interface. This program reads data from the 3-D model files and generates an input file for ISOGEN. ISOGEN knows nothing of PDS or any of its files. It reads only the input file created for it by the ISOGEN interface. While ISOGEN is primarily responsible for generating the drawing graphics (including dimensioning) the ISOGEN interface is responsible for most everything else — including note generation, recognition of attribute changes, defining which symbols to use and so on. The primary input to the ISOGEN interface is an ASCII file named pdsidf.dat. The interface reads from this file the piping and equipment models involved, the output isometric file name, and identification of all of the pipelines in the drawing. The interface also reads in data from the options file.

1-4

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

The options file consists of a collection of switches, options and tables that gives you some control over what the ISOGEN interface puts in its output file (called the intermediate data file or idf) and therefore what appears in the final drawing. Once this data is read in, the interface collects from the model files all of the components that make up the piping network. Data from the components is then used to form an internal data structure which represents the network. Finally, this network is traversed (the software traces a path through the piping network) and records are generated in the idf. The order of the records in the idf is in the order of the network traversal. Drawing notes and other features such as bill of material information are dealt with component by component as the network is traversed. If the components in the piping models are not properly connected or other problems exist, the internal data structure will not be properly built and isometric extraction will fail. See the section Interpreting the HITS Report for more information. The HITS report can help you to find problems in the piping model and tell you when the interface software is not working properly.

1.1.2 ASCII to Binary Conversion __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The Intergraph interface to ISOGEN creates an ASCII data file containing the input to ISOGEN. Since ISOGEN requires the input data to be in binary format, a program named ISOA_BGEN is run to convert this ASCII data file to binary. ISOA_BGEN creates the binary output file FOR036.# which IZOD2 uses to generate the isometric drawing.

1.1.3 ISOGEN __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ ISOGEN takes the binary input file and generates graphics in an 2D MicroStation design file. The graphics consist of the completed isometric drawing. ISOGEN can also generate several nongraphic outputs, including: An ISOGEN MTO neutral file A parts list (bill of material) A cut pipe report A component VRS sheet number file The parts list file contains the same bill of material that is shown on the isometric drawing. It is possible to turn the drawing bill of material off and attach the printed ASCII file to the drawing instead. The cut pipe report, which shows the length of each piece of pipe in the line, can be useful. The component VRS sheet number file is used by the batch extraction software and is discussed elsewhere.

2. PDS Environment

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The PDS 3D software supports a variety of applications. All the supported applications use a common interface that is controlled by the PD Shell program. This ensures consistency across applications and minimizes the amount of time required to learn the product. The PDS 3D modules provide a simple user interface through extensive use of forms. The modules also provide an on-line Help capability for easy access to information while working in the product. The PDS 3D software uses available nucleus tools such as MicroStation and FORMS. It supports standard software such as NFS, NQS, and RIS required to set up data across a network. This design facilitates the use of non-PDS tools such as relational databases and third party software. The PD_Shell Environment and all batch jobs in the PDS 3D products interface to Intergraph’s Network Licensing System.

2.1.1 PD_Shell Form Conventions __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The following Conventions describe how to respond to the various buttons, lists, and prompts that make up the environments. The display size of forms and dialog boxes in the non-Microstation graphics environment are independent of the size of the workstation’s display system. Most forms contain the same basic features: buttons, fields, text, and other gadgets. In general, anything you find on a form is called a gadget. Selecting Options You move through the PD Shell forms by selecting function buttons or other gadgets from the form. Select means to place the screen cursor (which appears as an arrow) on top of a screen gadget and press . For most of the forms with scrolling lists, you can double-click on a row to select and accept the data in that row. This performs the same action as selecting a row (which highlights) and then selecting the Accept button. You use the select action to select functions, access other forms, activate data fields, toggle buttons, select from lists, scroll through data displayed on the screen, and so on. The following summarizes other basic actions you use in the environments: Enter — When keying in any data in a key-in field, press the or key for the data to be entered into the system. You can also press or to move through a set of key-in fields. Delete — If you make a mistake while keying in text, press the key to erase character(s) to the left of the cursor.

Common Tools on the PD Shell Forms There are many gadgets in the environments that are common to most or all of the forms. The following describes these tools. Standard Commands The PD Shell forms have a set of standard buttons in the upper right corner of most of the form windows. The available commands vary from form to form depending on the type of operation. The Help button activates on-line Help for the active form. Help remains active until you delete the Help window.

2-6

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

The Shell button exits the active form and returns control to the base manager that is associated with the active form. For most forms this returns to the Plant Design System Environment form. The Top button exits the active form and returns control to the top form of the active branch. The Cancel button cancels or exits from the active form. Control returns to the immediately preceding form in the hierarchy. The Accept button accepts a selection or operation. Depending on the active form or option, the active form remains active so that you can repeat a similar operation or control returns to the preceding form. The Restart button clears any key-in fields on the form that have values you can modify. Scrolling List Some screen menus have a scrolling list of projects or applications. You need to scroll a list only if more options are available than can be displayed in the window. To scroll a list, select the arrow buttons on the side of the list. The list scrolls up or down depending on which arrow you select. The scrolling list has an arrow pointing up and an arrow pointing down. These arrows scroll lists line by line. There is a button that slides between these two arrows to indicate your position on the list. To page through the list, select the space above or below the sliding button. The list pages up or down accordingly. You can also select the slider and, while pressing , slide the button up or down the bar. The items scroll through the window as you move the button. The size and position of the button on the scroll bar is an indication of the number of lines and the relative position within the list. All commands that display a list of design areas or models order the list alphanumerically by the design area number or model number in ascending order. In some forms with scrolling lists, you can double-click on a row to select and accept the data in that row. This performs the same action as selecting a row (which highlights) and then selecting the Accept button.

PDS Environment 2 - 7

Key-in Fields Screens that accept keyboard input have key-in fields. These fields are box-shaped and dark gray. You can select a key-in field and key in a new value. A bar cursor appears in the active key-in field. Key in your input, and press . To change a field, reselect the field and key in the new information. Key-in fields have a maximum number of characters depending on the item that is being defined. If you select a key-in field for a code-listed attribute, the system activates a form that lists the code list values for the selected field. MicroStation requires lowercase characters for the file specification and path name of all design files. Therefore, the system automatically converts any input for the file specification and path name of a design file (such as a model or drawing) to lowercase before loading into the Project Control Database. Display-List Boxes A display-list box is located at the end of some key-in fields. It lets you select data from a list instead of keying in information. For example, there is a display list associated with the Authorization key-in field shown. At the end of the field, there is a small box with horizontal dashes. When you select this display list box with the screen cursor, an associated list of valid input values displays. Select an item from the list to enter its value into the field. Shift Left and Shift Right buttons At the bottom of some key-in and display fields, there are two buttons marked with arrows. These buttons are called shift left and shift right buttons. Often, you can key in more characters than a field display shows. Shift Left moves the text display to the front of the field; Shift Right moves the text display to the end of the field. Toggle A toggle field on a screen menu enables you to select one of two possible choices, one of which is always displayed. Place a data point on the toggle field to toggle between the two choices. Roll-Through List A roll-through list shows one choice at a time of a list that can be several items long. Place a data point on the roll-through list to scroll through the available options. The option displayed is active.

2.1.2 Batch Processes __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ When you install the PDS 3D applications, the system creates the necessary batch queues for that application. Refer to Loading PDS Products in the Project Administrator (PD_Project) Reference Guide for a listing of the batch queues. PDS 3D uses these batch queues to allow you to continue working in the environment while the system processes a request. Many of the batch processes can be delayed for submission at a specified time. When you submit a batch process the system sends an e-mail message to the mail path of the default login reporting the job’s completion status and any error log information. The batch process e-mail functionality is optional.

Iso Output Node:Path Select the Iso Output Node:Path field and key in the nodename:path where the ISOGEN output files will be stored. The default is set to nodename:/login directory. The key-in fields: Iso Output Node:Path, Iso Options File and Iso Seed Design File will accept a network address. Each should be entered as nodename:drive:\directory path\filename for example: 111jn:C:\win32app\ingr\dat\defaults.dat.

To change the default settings for the Iso Output Node:Path field, edit the ISOPATH export statement. Edit the pds.cmd file located in ˜\pdiso\bin. For example, a typical ISOPATH export statement in the pds.cmd file might be: $ENV{’ISOPATH’}=’PDSNT:C:\users\iso\isofiles\\’;

11.

Iso Design File Select the Iso Design File field and key in the ISOGEN design file. By default, the first pipeline name is displayed with a .iso extension.

3-6

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

The .iso extension will generate multi-sheet isometrics into a single design file. Replacing the .iso extension with a .i* extension allows the software to generate multi-sheet isometrics into separate design files where the * will be replaced with a number. For example, if the model in the Interactive Isometric Extraction form was changed to 400104wc.i*, the resulting design files would be 400104wc.i01, 400104wc.i02,, etc. This procedure will allow you to take advantage of ISOGEN’s plotting capabilities as described in the section Plot Isometric Drawing. The the most recently processed iso, displayed in the Iso Design File, becomes the first selection on the list of available isos when the Plot or View Graphics command is selected. 12.

Iso Options File Select the Iso Options File field and key in the nodename:path where the ISOGEN options file is located. If you key in an options filename and the file does not exist, an error message is displayed at the bottom of the form. The options file contains switches, options and tables that drive the Intergraph interface to ISOGEN. This file allows you to customize iso’s to your standard practice. The default is set to nodename:/pathname. The default value is delivered in the options file and can be altered by exporting the ISOOPTION variable.

13.

Iso Seed Design File Select the Iso Seed Design File field and key in the nodename:path where the ISOGEN seed design file is located. If you key in a seed filename and the file does not exist then an error message is displayed at the bottom of the form. The iso seed design file is a 2-D design file that is copied to create an empty design file into which the isometric is drawn by ISOGEN. The default is set to nodename:/path name/iso seed file. The default value is determined when the ISOSEED export variable is defined. To change the default settings for the Iso Options File and Iso Seed Design File fields, edit the ISOSEED and ISOOPTION export statements in the PDS.CMD file. The following are examples of typical ISOSEED and ISOOPTION export statements as they would appear in the defaults.dat file. export ISOSEED=$ENV{’ISOSEED’} = ’pdssrv:D:\proj\iso\ref\isoc.sed’ export ISOOPTION=$ENV{’ISOOPTION’} = ’pdssrv:D:\proj\iso\ref\isoc.def’

3.1 Extraction Criteria __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The following sections contain information specific to defining extraction criteria which must be defined prior to initializing an isometric extraction. The following extraction criteria are covered in this section: Model Files Pipeline Names –

Generation by Line Name Substring



Generation by Line ID

Iso Design File

3.1.1 Model Files __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Key in the names of the PDS Piping, Equipment Modeling and/or Pipe Support files that should be considered for iso extraction. Up to eight model numbers can be input. Equipment model numbers must be specified in order to generate nozzles on the isometric. The first model number entered is treated as the primary file and therefore must be a Piping model. Any RDB data accessed during iso extraction is obtained from the primary model (through its type 63 data). The RDB data that is accessed by the Iso Extraction Software and that must be properly attached to the primary file includes: Specification Material Database Graphic Commodity Library Physical Dimension Library Piping Job Spec Tables Library Standard Notes Library Material Descriptions Library Specialty and Instrument Descriptions Library Label Description Library Miscellaneous data stored within the model itself

3 - 10

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

If the model number that you specify does not exist, the software displays an error message at the bottom of the form. Press to proceed. If the model number is invalid, the software displays the message Error Retrieving Model and the fully expanded filename is displayed in the input field. A filename is considered invalid if it does not exist in the project database.

3.1.2 Pipeline Names __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Key in the pipe lines that are to be extracted into a single iso. Up to 8 lines can be specified. The lines you specify must be connected together in the Piping Model files. That is, these pipelines must be a network of piping segments. In order for the lines to be connected, the segments that form those lines must also be connected. You cannot specify multiple disconnected piping sections (such as, vessel trim piping). Pipelines can be identified for extraction in two ways: extraction by line name substring and extraction by line id (see the section Conventions and Limitations). The method you use depends upon the options selected and set in the iso extraction options file. Refer to The Options File, page 7 - 1 for more information. For each method, you identify the network of piping to extract by specifying piping segment attributes. Piping segments usually correspond only to sections of piping and NOT to an entire piping system (unless the line is trivial).

Extraction by Line Name Substring When extracting by line name substring you should key in any substring of the full PDS line name that uniquely identifies the pipeline you want to include in the iso. This is the default way of identifying pipelines to extract as defined in the LINE_ID_DEFINITION section of the defaults.dat file. Example 1: If the line name is 6IN-OWS10111-1C0031 then a substring that you might use to identify this line is OWS10111. You probably would not want to use 1C0031 since it is the spec name component of the line name and would probably identify more than one line in the model. Likewise, you would probably not want to use 6IN-OWS10111 since you may want to extract sections of the line that are not 6" NPD or because multiple 6" sections are connected together by sections that are not 6". Do not extract by line name substring if lines that are similarly named exist together in the models that you are extracting from. This situation exists, for example, when the substring you want to use is also a substring of another line name.

Interactive Isometric Extraction 3 - 11

Example 2: If the line that you want to extract is 8IN-OWS1011-1C0031, and you use the substring OWS1011, you are also specifying that you want to extract 6INOWS10111-1C0031 because OWS1011 is a substring of OWS10111. To ensure that you are extracting the correct line: specify a larger substring of the line name for the line you want to extract. In the case above, that larger substring may be -OWS1011-. By including the dashes the substring specified is no longer a substring of 6IN-OWS10111-1C0031. specify the line ids of the lines you want to extract. Refer to Extraction by Line ID, page 3 - 11 for more information.

Extraction by Line ID When extracting by line ID you key in the line ID of the lines that you want to extract. The line ID is a user defined collection of database attributes that can be used to refer to pipelines by other than their line names. To extract by line ID, you must select the proper option in the Options File AND you must know the line ID definition as specified in the options file (refer to LINE_ID_DEFINITION, page 7 - 59 for information on defining the line ID). To extract a line by its line ID, key in the attributes that make up the line id and separate them by dashes. Example 3: One simple definition of the line ID might be fluid code followed by line sequence number. This definition allows you to refer to the line without the NPD or spec name components the line name. Thus, OWS-1011 will refer to line 6INOWS1011-1C0031 while OWS-10111 will refer to line 8IN-OWS10111-1C0031. When specifying the line ID of a line to extract, both the embedded dashes and the ORDER of the attributes is important. Thus in the example above, neither OWS1011 (because the dash is missing) or 1011-OWS (because the order is incorrect) would suffice if the line ID is defined as fluid code followed by line sequence number. The difference between extracting by line ID and extracting by line name substring is that pipeline sections that are extracted are identified by EQUALITY of the line ID attributes rather than by SUBSTRING of the line name attribute. This method of identifying lines avoids the problems that can occur with line name substrings (provided that the line id definition is sufficient to uniquely identify pipe lines).

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

3.2 Iso Design File __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Key in the name of the output isometric design file. This file need not exist prior to running the software. If the file does exist, the software replaces it with a new file when the current iso is extracted. To specify that each isometric sheet is to be drawn in its own design file, you can insert an asterisk (*) as a wild card character in the output iso filename. When a wildcard character is inserted in the filename, the software replaces it with a digit as each iso sheet is generated. If more than 9 sheets are generated then the letters a - z are used for replacement of the wildcard. You may also use an asterisk (*) in the output file name’s extension. If you do this, the asterisk is replaced by two digits. For example, if you key in test.i*, sheet 1 will be in file test.i01, sheet 2 will be in test.i02, and so on. Since UNIX file names cannot have more than 14 characters, the iso design file name is truncated to a maximum of 14 characters. Using more than one fixed character together with an asterisk is not recommended. MicroStation requires that all design file names be in lower case. If an invalid iso filename is keyed in, an error message is displayed in the message field. The name portion of this file specification (excluding any wild card character) is used by the software to name several other files that are generated at the same time as the isometric model number. These include: The Intermediate data file - iso name + .idf

The Hits file - iso name + .h

The Intergraph mto neutral file - iso name + sheet no. + .b# (where: # is the number of times the line has been extracted)

The error message file - iso name + .err

The ISOGEN mto neutral file - iso name + .bom

The ISOGEN message file - iso name + .msg

The ISOGEN printed parts list - iso name + .prt

Interactive Isometric Extraction 3 - 13

The ISOGEN component vrs sheet file - iso name + .sed

The ISOGEN cut pipe report - iso name + .cut These files are all generated in the Iso Output Node:Path unless they are switched off by option selections (refer to The Options File, page 7 - 1 for more information). Their contents are discussed in more detail in the sections entitled Options File and Isometric Seed File.

3.5 Conventions and Limitations __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Some situations that occur commonly can be handled in more than one way by the iso extraction software. To deal with these, a set of conventions, described below, has been adopted. Other situations that can arise simply cannot be handled by the extraction software as it is currently written. A brief summary of these items is also provided below.

3.5.1 Extraction Conventions __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Olet Type Branches Olet type branch components (such as olets, branch-welds, and occasionally half couplings) can be owned by the header or branch pipeline in the 3-D model. By convention, when this type of branch is extracted, the branch component is assigned to the header pipeline. Thus, when the branch line is extracted, the branch component will be drawn dotted, no-mto and it will not appear in the BOM. However, you can specify that the branch component is assigned to the branch line. This depends on the position of the Header/Branch toggle on the Piping Data Control Form (accessed through Project Administrator). For more information on the Piping Data Control Form, see the section entitled Piping Data Control in the PD Project Administrator Reference Guide. It is NOT necessary that the piping segment in the model, under the branch component, have the same line name as the header.

End-Point Components When a pipeline in the model changes name at a multi-connect point component then that component is "owned" by more than one line. When this occurs, the component is always assigned to the pipeline attached to connect point 1 of the component. For example, if three different lines come together and join at a tee, the tee component will extract onto, and show up in the B.O.M. of, the line at connect point 1 of the tee. When the other two lines are extracted, the tee will show up as dotted, nomto and will not appear in the B.O.M. (Notice that it is NOT necessary that piping segments in the model be "broken" in any way to achieve the above result.)

3 - 20

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

Implied Materials at Line Name Changes When a pipeline name changes at a flanged connection, the bolts and gaskets generated at that point may be assigned to either of two lines. In this situation, the bolts and gaskets are assigned to the flange having the higher east, north and elevation coordinate. This arbitrary assignment prevents the implied materials from being generated twice. (It is possible to override this assignment; refer to the PDS Piping Design Graphics Reference Guide for details.)

Pipe Supports Pipe supports in the 3-D model may be attached anywhere along the length of a pipe except at either of the end-points. They may also be attached to the origin (connect point 0) of any component as well as to a component tap. You may have multiple supports connected to a component origin, but there should be at most one support attached to a component tap. When a support is connected to a tap, there must NOT be any other piping attached to the component at that tap. In general, supports should NOT be located at component connect points other than as outlined above. The one exception to this rule is that supports may be located at the same point as an olet branch (or branches) along a length of pipe. If these guidelines are not followed, the line may not extract.

Type 63 Information Type 63 data is read from the first model entered on the form for Interactive Extraction. When using Batch Extraction, Type 63 data is read from the first piping model in the area specified in each record of the batch input file.

3.5.2 Extraction Limitations __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Branch Nesting There is a limitation on the branch nesting depth that a pipeline may have. The first branch off from a line is level 1. If this branch in turn has a branch, then that branch would be level 2. ISOGEN will currently handle pipelines that contain up to twenty levels of branching. If a pipeline contains more than twenty nested branches, the extraction will fail. This limitation effectively limits the size of the largest system type isometric that can be extracted. This generally does not pose a problem for single pipeline fabrication type isometrics. Note, that the ISOGEN interface identifies a traversal sequence that minimizes the number of nested branches in most cases.

Interactive Isometric Extraction 3 - 21

System Isometrics Spool Numbering is not supported for system-type isometrics.

Tapped Piping Components ISOGEN requires that traversal of a pipeline never enter a component through a tap. Rather, in traversing the line, ISOGEN requires first traveling through a component and then traversing "out" the tap. It is possible to create a pipeline in the 3-D model that would require the ISOGEN interface to illegally traverse into a tap. You can avoid this situation by NOT joining components through taps. For example, a segment of pipe that begins at a component tap should not end at a tap on different component. If this situation cannot be avoided, change the line name somewhere and extract the network in two sections. Other limitations having to do with tapped components include: 1) Elbows and pipe bends must not have more than one tap. It is possible to create a model where an elbow is tapped more than once, but this configuration will not extract. 2) Tapped tee’s cannot be extracted using ISOGEN.

Flanged Pipe Taps that are placed on flanged pipe will not extract. Refer to Intergraph option 72 for settings that impact flanged pipe.

Batch Software Organization 4 - 1

4. Batch Software Organization

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

This section provides an overview of the batch extraction software components and organization. The purpose of this section is to explain to software support personnel how the software works so that problems can be tracked down and reported. Figure 4-1 shows the batch software organization. The batch extraction software is driven by an executable pdsidf and a script file batch.cmd. When you submit a batch job using the Schedule Batch Job form, the batch extraction is submitted to a batch queue named PDisocreate. This queue is created with a job limit of 1 and a priority of 16. These parameters can be modified as needed. In order to run batch isometrics, the pd_iso.cmd file, located in ˜\pdiso\bin, must define locations for required software. This script is executed from the batch queue and allows the batch extraction process to run on a node other than the one from which it was submitted. The following three variables are read from the Windows NT registry: PD_SHELL PD_ISO PD_ISOGEN

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

Batch Software Organization 4 - 3

4.1 The Batch Job Input File __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The input to the batch procedure is an ASCII data file generated by the Batch Environment called the Batch Job Input File. This file is structured as shown in Figure 4-2.

Figure 4 - 2. Batch input file data structure The first record in the file contains a file format version number and the name of the Batch Data File from which the Batch Job Input file was generated. The software checks the version number to see if it matches the software version number, and, if it does match, passes the Batch Data File name on to other software modules as needed. The second record is called an option record. The option record contains all of the batch processing options and revision block data that was entered into the BATCH form. Each option is separated from the others by at least one space. This record contains an exclamation point (!) in column 1 which flags it as an option record. The third record holds the name of the default set which was specified in the Create Batch Job Input form. This record also contains an exclamation point in column 1. Subsequent records, which initially contain a space in column 1, hold the model and primary line name for an isometric drawing which will be extracted. After the line is extracted, it is marked by an asterisk (*) in column 1 to indicate that it has been processed. The drawing records can be repeated any number of times in the batch job input file. Each time Accept is selected, from the Create Batch Job Input form, a set of drawing records is written to the batch input file. An example batch job input file is shown in Figure 4-3.

Figure 4 - 3. Example Batch Job Input File

4-4

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

When a batch iso job is submitted using the Schedule Batch Job form, the batch job input file name is passed to the pdsidf executable as a parameter. The system then reads the batch job input file and drawing creation begins.

4.2 Line Processing (pdsidf) __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Given the options from the batch input file and the identification of the line, two files are created, seed.dat and pdsidf.dat. These are the same two files that are created during interactive extraction. The Project database is accessed to obtain the list of model files, secondary pipeline names, the seed file names, the options file for the piping area, the output file directory, the iso design file name and the extraction number for the drawing. Type 63 information is read from the first piping model in the area specified in each record of the batch input file. Note that this model may not be the piping model which contains the pipeline being extracted. The two files produced are different from the ones produced for interactive extraction. In pdsidf.dat, the first line name in the line name list is followed by a backslash and the piping area name. Following the line list is a record that contains the default set name. Next is a record that contains batch processing options. The last record contains the extraction number for the drawing. skiso5 skiso4 skiso6 skiso7 *skiso3 40eqp01 40eqp00 pdssk:h:\proj\iso\isofiles\380105wc.i* 380105\skiso\1 proj N Y Y N * * Y * * 04-Aug-1998 * 13 1 0

Batch Software Organization 4 - 5

In SEED.DAT, the seed iso design file name is followed by records containing the plot request file name, the output file directory, the output iso file name, extraction number and number of sections. pdssk:h:\proj\iso\ref\isoc.def pdssk:h:\proj\iso\ref\isoc.sed pdssk:h:\proj\iso\ref\isoc_sml.i pdssk:h:\proj\iso\isofiles 380105 13 1.fi

4.3 The ISOGEN Interface __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The ISOGEN interface performs the same function in batch extraction as in interactive extraction: generation of the Intermediate Data File (IDF), which is the input to ISOGEN. In addition to the IDF the interface may also produce an mto neutral file and three files containing text for the drawing title block. The title block text files are shown symbolically as a single file in Figure 4-1. The contents of each of the title block tables file is controlled by a corresponding table in the title block tables file map. The SEGMENT_DATA_TABLE produces a file with the file extension of .seg, the DRAWING_DATA_TABLE produces a file with the extension of .bit and the SHEET_DATA_TABLE produces a file with the extension of .dwg. The title block text files are only produced if the appropriate option is set in the Intergraph options block. Some of the entries in the DRAWING_DATA_TABLE can only be produced when PDSIDF.DAT contains the extra inputs that appear in the file for batch extraction. A title block record map set up for use with batch extraction might not generate a correct output file if it is generated by running the interactive software.

4.4 ISOGEN __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ As in interactive extraction, in batch extraction, the program ISOA_BGEN must be run immediately prior to IZOD2 in order to convert the ASCII IDF to binary. IZOD2, the ISOGEN image which produces the iso, can then be run to generate the isometric drawings. Isometrics generated by the batch software are always created one sheet to a design file. The iso design file name is passed to the interface as name.i*, and so the first sheet will be in a file with the extension .i01, the second in .i02 and so on. When isometrics are created in batch, you must set Intergraph options block word 4 to 1. This causes ISOGEN to create a file that identifies which sheet each component in the line is drawn on. This file (called the sheet data file) is used downstream to split up the mto neutral file by sheet and also to prepare the segment summary table for each isometric sheet.

4-6

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

4.4.1 Splitting the MTO neutral file (MSPLIT) __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ After IZOD2 (see Figure 4-1) runs and creates the sheet data file, Intergraph’s MSPLIT executable splits up the mto neutral file so that a separate neutral file is created for each sheet of the drawing. The sheet data file consists of sheet numbers followed by Intergraph database occurrence numbers. MSPLIT assigns each neutral file record to a particular sheet by matching occurrence numbers in the sheet data file with the occurrence number on each record in the mto neutral file. MSPLIT will not work if you have not mapped the Intergraph occurrence anywhere in the neutral file record. MSPLIT is executed by passing the mto neutral file name (without the file extension) and the extraction number as inputs in a foreign command line. Therefore, if the mto file name is test.b and the extraction number for the drawing is 10, the input parameter to MSPLIT would be formed as test 10. MSPLIT then looks for files test.b and test.sht as the input files. The current assignment for the exported variable ISOOPTION is used to obtain the mto neutral file map name. The mto neutral file map must be read so that the field containing the occurrence number can be located in an mto record. When output files are generated by MSPLIT, the output file name contains the extraction number and sheet number. For example, for sheet 2, extraction number 10, the output file name would be test2.b10.

4.5 Generating Title Block Input (TBLOCK) __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ In the same way that MSPLIT assigns a neutral file record to each sheet in an isometric, Intergraph’s TBLOCK assigns segment data to a sheet for the segment data summary. TBLOCK assigns records in the .seg file (produced by the PD_ISO interface) to each sheet. It then sorts the records for each sheet and eliminates duplicates. Finally, TBLOCK assigns each data item in the record a text node number and sends it as output to a new file, which is input to STIB. TBLOCK is also executed by passing the input in a foreign command line. The only input in this case is the isometric file name. The input files are then determined by name plus .seg and name plus .dwg. The title block map name is obtained by reading the options file assigned to ISOOPTION.

4.6 Filling in the Title Block (STIB) __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ After all of the input for each sheet has been determined, the executable that actually places text in the drawing title block is run. Intergraph’s STIB associates text in an input file with text nodes placed in the design file.

Batch Software Organization 4 - 7

4.7 Plotting __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ After drawings are created in batch they can be plotted. You can use IP_IPLOT plotting software. To submit a plot, the batch software submits a job to the batch queue named PDisoplot. The job that runs in PDisoplot actually launches the plot. Since the plot jobs are launched from a separate batch queue, you can accumulate the jobs in the queue and release them at some later time. You might also hold the jobs in PDisoplot to prevent normal production plotting queues from getting loaded down with isometric plots.

4.8 Updating the Project Database (pdsidf) __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ After a line has been successfully extracted, the project database is updated. The extraction number and date are updated each time a drawing is completed, while the revision block is only updated if you chose to update it in the Create Batch Job Input form when you create the batch job input file.

4.9 Making a Run Log Entry (pdsidf) __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Making an entry into the run log is the last activity performed. The run log file name is formed using the file name of the batch job input file together with the file extension .job. An entry in the log file consists of the drawing spec (piping area plus line name), an error code, a status message, and the date and time that the run completed. This is the same information given to you in a MAIL message when an error occurs.

4.10 Investigating Batch Extraction Problems __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Since there are many steps involved in the generation of a completed isometric, there are many ways for the process to fail. When a problem occurs and drawing generation fails, you should follow a systematic procedure to determine the cause of the problem and, if needed, call Intergraph support and log the problem. All files will reside in the isoerr subdirectory in the specified output path location. Here is a suggested procedure: 1.

Check the run log (.job file) to get the status code and message. If there is no code or message, the batch procedure itself probably failed or was aborted. In this case, go to Step 4.

2.

Consult Appendix A for an explanation of the error determined in Step 1. The explanation of the error might be enough to enable you to resolve it easily. If not,

4-8

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

then the explanation should narrow down the possibilities to a certain extraction facility or a certain area within the batch procedure. For example, it could be that the ISOGEN interface failed or that ISOGEN failed.

3.

Check for error message files (.err). Sometimes the cause of an error is reported more specifically in the error log. For example, if the ISOGEN interface fails, it might be that the line did not exist in the model. This fact would be reported to you in the error message log. The .err file contains a note in the files list located near the top of the file. This note indicates which file was read for type 63 data. If any of the type 63 data which could effect the iso (for example: MTO Options, Design Monuments, etc.) has been changed, verify that the changes have been made to the file that is being read by PD_ISO.

4.

Check the log file for the batch run. Occasionally, error messages are displayed here and are not reported in the error log file. Also, if an error occurs or some module stack dumps, those conditions will be reported in this log.

5.

Rerun the line with the DEBUG and VERIFY options enabled. If the above steps do not lead to a resolution of the problem, use the DEBUG and VERIFY options to generate a detailed log file for the run. These options will also cause log files to be generated for the plotting jobs in case there is a problem with plotting. If you cannot determine the cause of the problem, the detailed log and any other pertinent files will need to be sent to Intergraph for an analysis of the problem.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

This chapter describes how to set up and use the ISOGEN interface software for generating isometrics in a batch process. Batch generation of isometrics is intended to be the primary means for generating production drawings on a project. Interactive extraction is intended primarily for testing the PDS interface to ISOGEN and ISOGEN itself. Using batch Isometric extraction, you can Generate multiple drawings in a single job

Automatically fill out the drawing title block

Automatically submit the completed drawing to the plotter. Everything that is needed to extract an isometric (except for line name) is stored in the Project Control Database at the piping area level. The following are types of area information that can be found in the Project Control Database: Area name

The Project Control Database helps you manage the isometrics produced on a project. For example, you can use the Project Control Database to keep track of when lines need to be extracted and to record and report on drawing issue dates.

Batch Isometric Extraction 5 - 3

5.1 Initial Setup Considerations __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The following procedure outlines the basic steps you should follow to use the batch extraction facility.

Create a batch options file Set up an options file to be used for batch extraction. For information on modifying the options file, see Define Default Sets, page 5 - 13 . As part of this set-up, you should also create a Title Block Map that is used in generating title block information. For more information on the Title Block Map, see Mapping Attributes to the Title Block, page 10 - 1 .

Create border and extraction seed files Create the design files that will contain your isometric drawing border and a seed file that will be copied once for each iso produced. The seed file will contain text nodes in the drawing title block. During the extraction process, the software attaches text strings to these nodes so that the title block is automatically filled out. The border file is attached to the seed file as a reference file. Refer to Creating Seed Files for Extraction, page 9 - 1 and Mapping Attributes to the Title Block, page 10 - 1 for details on setting up these files.

Set export variables Set the export variables that define drawing border location and other information that used in various areas of the software for batch extraction. ISOGEN environment variables are defined in the PDS.CMD file. The following is a list of user-defined export variables. ISOPATH $ENV{’ISOPATH’} = ’node:drive:directory path\\’; The exported ISOPATH value is loaded by default into the output path directory slot on the Add Default Set form. It is also used as a default for the output location, Iso output node:Path, when extracting an interactive isometric. ISOOPTION $ENV{’ISOOPTION’} = ’node:drive:directory path\isoc.def’; The exported ISOOPTION value is loaded by default into the Options File field on the Add Default Set form. It is also used as a default for the options file, Iso Options File, when extracting an interactive isometric.

5-4

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

ISOSEED $ENV{’ISOSEED’} = ’node:drive:directory path\isoc.sed’; The exported ISOSEED value is loaded by default into the Seed File field on the Add Default Set form. It is also used as a default for the seed design file, Iso Seed Design File, when extracting an interactive isometric. ISOPLOT $ENV{’ISOPLOT’} = ’node:drive:directory path\isoc_sml.i’; The exported ISOPLOT value is loaded by default into the Plot File field on the Add Default Set form. It is also used as a default for the plot parameters file, Iso Seed Plot File, when plotting an interactive isometric. ISOBORDER $ENV{’ISOBORDER’} = ’node:drive:directory path\isoc.brd’; The exported ISOBORDER value is loaded by default into the Border File field on the Add Default Set form. ISOBATCH $ENV{’ISOBATCH’} = ’node:drive:directory path\isobat\\’; The exported ISOBATCH value is loaded by default into the Batch Job Input File field on the Create Batch Job Input form. ISOREPORT $ENV{’ISOREPORT’} = ’node:drive:directory path\isorpt’; The exported ISOREPORT value is loaded by default into the Output File field on the Batch Data Reports form. ISOBATCHQUE $ENV{’ISOBATCHQUE’} = ’PDisovreate’; The exported ISOBATCHQUE value is loaded by default into the Process Queue field on the Schedule Batch Job form. ISO_ASCII_LOAD $ENV{’ISO_ASCII_LOAD’} = ’node:drive:directory path\isoascii’; The exported ISO_ASCII_LOAD value is loaded by default into the Filename field on the Bulk Load Lines From ASCII File form.

Batch Isometric Extraction 5 - 5

PDISOFONT $ENV{’PDISOFONT’} = ’XX’; The defined font must be a mono-spaced font. The exported font PDISOFONT value defines the font that will be used on the output isometric, both on the body of the iso, and on the MTO on the face of the iso. The defined font must be a mono-spaced font. SYMDGN, SYMNDX and SYMLIB $ENV{’SYMDGN’} = ’node:directory path\symbol.dgn’; $ENV{’SYMNDX’} = ’node:directory path\symbol.ndx’; $ENV{’SYMLIB’} = ’node:directory path\symbol.lib’; The exported values SYMDGN, SYMNDX and SYMLIB are loaded into the Symbol Design Node:File, Symbol Index Node:File and Symbol Library Node:File fields respectively on the Isometric Symbol Editor form. ISOUSRREFDIM Variable and Pointing to a Specific FW+ ASCII File This variable overrides the setting for the data file used in generating isometric drawings with references to gridlines or structural columns. $ENV{’ISOUSRREFDIM’}=’node:directory path\filespec.dat’; Where:

filespec.dat is the name of the gridline reference data file.

For example: $ENV{’ISOUSRREFDIM’}=’pdsserv1:e:\proj1\project\fw_bldg_a.dat’; Intergraph option 71 must be enabled before data in the filespec.dat file can be referenced. The following rules apply when using the ISOUSRREFDIM variable: If the variable is set and points to the proper location of a valid gridline reference data file, the file will be used for placing structural references on the isometric drawing. If the ISOUSRREFDIM variable is set incorrectly (for example, typos in the UNCpath or filespec), references are not displayed on the isometric drawing. If the ISOUSRREFDIM variable is not set in the pds.cmd file, gridline dimensions are extracted from the fw_projname.dat file by default.

5-6

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

Overiding the default reference dimension file can be useful in situations where a line passes between two buildings and you want to force the dimension from a specific building rather than using the closest dimension point. See Generate FrameWorks Reference Dimension File, page 5 - 86 for more information on the FrameWorks Dimension File.

The MicroStation uconfigure.dat file To avoid problems while using the batch extraction feature, edit the MicroStation configure.dat file and comment out the command line which generates the uconfig.dat file. #do user configure.dat(uconfigure.dat) #[ -f $MS_DIR/cfg/uconfigure.dat ] && . $MS_DIR/cfg/uconfigure.dat

The problem can occur when a uconfigure.dat file, generated for one project, overrides another project’s export statement. This causes the isometric extraction to fail when areas, models, and lines can not be located.

Batch Isometric Extraction 5 - 7

5.2 Basic Workflow for Running Batch Isometrics __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Define default setups Using the information from pre-defined export variables, define a default setup. A default setup contains the network address, directory and file specification for each of the following: options file seed file plot parameters file output path border file Exported information can be overwritten.

For more information on defining a default set, see Define Default Sets, page 5 - 13 .

Select project options Select the project options that define values throughout the project. These options include: Iso Name Option - sets the convention for naming iso design files. Drawing Number Option - sets the convention for for defining drawing names. Project Default Set - defines the set that is used in bulk load and generating isos Output Path Option - uses the area name in defining the output directory path for isos. The area name is appended to the output path assigned in the default set as subdirectory. For more information on defining project options, see Define Project Options, page 5 - 22 .

Add drawings to the newly created iso area For each pipeline that you wish to extract in batch you must first create a drawing. A single piping area will normally contain many drawings; usually one per each pipeline in the design files that comprise the area. When a drawing is created, define the name(s) of the pipeline(s) to be associated with the drawing, the output design filename and drawing number. The data stored for the piping area together with the data stored for a drawing provide all the same inputs you supply when using interactive extraction.

5-8

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

In either method, the drawing must be defined matching the format defined in the LINE_ID_DEFINITION section of the options file. You can add drawings to a piping area by either keying in the data or downloading data from an existing model. If data from an existing model is used to define a drawing, the drawing can be created automatically. For more information see Utilities, page 5 - 56 .

Generate a Batch Job Input File A Batch Job Input File specifies run options and drawings/line names for isometric generation. When the batch job finishes, the Batch Job Input File can be either be deleted or edited so that it can be resubmitted. For more information on generating a batch job input file, see Create Batch Job Input, page 5 - 89 .

Batch Processing Considerations To achieve optimum performance of Piping Isometrics in batch mode, it is necessary to understand how PD_ISO processes a batch job. As the PD_ISO software begins processing in batch mode, it creates an empty MicroStation design file in a temporary directory on the processing machine. Then, a number of piping and equipment models are attached as reference. The quantity of attached models is based on the setting of Intergraph option 60 and the continuation areas as defined through the Batch Isometric environment.

Initiate the batch job The batch job is initiated by submitting the Batch Job Input File. A batch job can be submitted either immediately or scheduled for a later time. For more information, see Schedule Batch Job, page 5 - 100 .

5.3.9.3 Isometric Symbol Editor __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ ISOGEN provides an extensive library of symbols that you can select to map PDS symbol names to isometric drawing symbols. If the drawing symbology for some of these symbols is inadequate, you can redefine them to have new symbology. It is recommend that you copy the provided design files and index files when creating new symbols. These files are the symbol.dgn and symbol.ndx files that are located in the directory ˜/pdiso/dat. The symbol definition process consists of the following steps: 1.

Draw the symbol in graphics by using the Symbol Definition Software.

2.

Create a symbol library from the graphics generated in step 1.

3.

Add the symbol library to the options file.

4.

Change the PDS to ISOGEN symbol map, as needed, so that PDS items are mapped to the appropriate ISOGEN SKEY.

The working units of the copied symbol.dgn file are defined as the following:

Master Units : M Sub Units : MM sub units per master unit: 1000 uor per sub unit : 1000

The Data readout accuracy is set to .02. The scale and angle locks and grid display may be turned ON to make symbol construction easier. The following grid setup works well and can be saved using the MicroStation file designed option: GU=0: .10 GR=10

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

1.

Select the Iso Symbol Editor button from the Utilities form. The system displays the Isometric Symbol Editor form.

2.

Define the Symbol Design, Symbol Index and Symbol Library fields to define the location of those files. Use the format nodename:path to define the location of each file. For example: mynode:/usr/ip32/pdiso/dat/symbol.dgn. You can set the PDS Environment Variables: SYMDGN, SYMNDX and SYMLIB to define default values for these fields. You can key in the name of a previously-created, symbol index file name by two methods. You can key in the name when revising a symbol that has been defined in a previous session. Also, you can key in the name when adding a new symbol to a 2-D design file that already contains one or more user-defined symbols.

Batch Isometric Extraction 5 - 73

If a single index file is not maintained for each design file that contains user-defined symbols, you will have difficulty converting the design file graphics into an ISOGEN symbol library. It is recommended that all symbols be defined in one design file with one corresponding index file. 3.

After defining the fields in the previous step, select the Symbol Editor button to enter the MicroStation environment and activate the Isometric Symbol Definition form.

Input Area Options

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Various components of the isometric symbol can be created and/or revised using the commands in the Input area and the Symbol Origin command located on the Isometric Symbol Definition form.

Old Skey Select the Old Skey field, and key in an old skey for the symbol you are defining. The old skey is an existing symbol key chosen from Appendix B: Alias ISOGEN Tables. When defining a new symbol, some of the default properties of the new symbol are inherited from the old one. The basic skeleton or connect point geometry of a new symbol may not vary from that of the old symbol. For example, you must not define a new angled fitting based on a straight-through fitting.

5 - 74

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

New Skey Select the New Skey field, and key in a new skey. The new skey is the symbol key of the symbol that is currently being defined. The following notes apply to new skey: If you leave the new skey blank, the old symbol will be redefined. If the old skey is variable end prep (that is, the old skey ends with the characters **), the symbol will be redefined for all end preps. If the old skey is specified with a specific end prep, only the symbol with that end prep will be redefined. If you specify a new skey, a new symbol of that name will be created. The new skey may end with the characters ** to indicate that the symbol is variable end prep. If the old skey is a valve operator and the new skey is left blank, all valve symbols that currently use that operator symbol will be redefined with the new operator. If the old skey is a valve operator and a new skey is specified, the operator must be explicitly attached to new valve symbols (using the spindle key input field). The new skey must never be the same as one of the old skeys that have been previously defined for ISOGEN. The system checks the index file to see if the current combination of old and new skey already exists. — THEN — If the combination exists, the software recognizes that an existing user-defined symbol definition is being revised. The software will then perform a window area about the redefined symbol graphics that you previously placed in the design file. — OR — If the combination does not exist in the index file, the software knows that the symbol is being redefined for the first time.

Symbol Origin If you are revising an existing iso symbol, do not define a symbol origin.

The Symbol Origin command defines an area in which the new iso symbol will be created. All iso symbol graphics must be contained within the defined area. Select the Symbol Origin button from the Isometric Symbol Definition form. The symbol origin is the lower left hand corner of a rectangular area in which the new symbol will be drawn. The rectangular area is approximately 20 x 25 mm.

Batch Isometric Extraction 5 - 75

Position the rectangular area and place a data point to place it. Once the area is placed, you must draw the iso symbol using only MicroStation Line and Linestring commands. No circles or closed shapes can be used. Keep the symbol as simple and as symmetrical as possible. Use approximately one-fourth of the block for the right proportion of your new symbol. Do not move or change the area once it is placed.

Spindle Key Spindle Key defines the operator subsymbol that will be attached to this symbol when it is drawn in the isometric. There are 12 existing spindle keys defined in the table in Appendix B: Alias ISOGEN Tables. You can also define new spindles (operators). If the symbol does not require a spindle, this field can be left blank if the symbol does not require a spindle.

ScaleFactor ScaleFactor is used to scale the plotted shape up or down relative to the dimensions used in drawing the symbol. A value of 100 (which is recommended) will give a scaling factor of 1.

Orientation Orientation is used to define the type of fitting drawn. This number is used for automatically creating a mirror image symbol. Available options include: Symmetrical - none (symbol is symmetrical) Flow Direction Dep - flow direction dependent (for example, check valve) Large to Small Bore - large to small bore (for example, reducer) Flange Start - flange start (for example, has a gasket to the left)

Flow Arrows Flow Arrows defines the flow arrow for the symbol. Available options include: Use Old SKEY - same as the old skey No - never has a flow arrow Yes - has a flow arrow

Dimensions Dimensions control how the fitting or symbol is dimensioned. Available options include: Use Old SKEY - same as the old skey Off - dimensions off On - dimensions on

5 - 76

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

Lagging/Tracing Lagging/Tracing controls the insulation and heat tracing display on the fitting. Available options include: Use Old SKEY - same as old skey Both Off - both off Lagging On - lagging on Tracing On - tracing on Both On - both on Setting values in option block words 61 and 62 causes ISOGEN to draw insulation and tracing on every component. These symbols definition options enable you to override the options block switches. For example, even though insulation and tracing on components are enabled, the previous options allow you to specify that for a specific component neither value should be displayed.

Assembling an Isometric Symbol

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The different components that make a user-defined isometric symbol include: Symbol Origin

Dynamically displays a drawing symbol area (discussed previously).

Start Point

The in point of the symbol; analogous to a connect point in PDS terminology. The point where the symbol will connect to adjacent symbols.

End Point

The out point of the symbol. Also, a point where the symbol will connect to an adjacent symbol.

Spindle Point

The point where a valve operator attaches to a symbol. Similar to the symbol origin in the PDS world.

Tap Points

Branch points on a symbol. Points where other piping components can be attached to the symbol. Tap points are not exactly analogous to PDS taps. A redefined symbol will usually have several tap points; however, when a drawing is created normally, only one or two will be used.

Symbol

Symbol graphics consist of the lines and line strings that are always drawn when a symbol is drawn in a drawing.

Lagging

Lagging graphics consist of the lines and line strings that are only drawn when the lagging on the symbol is enabled.

Tracing

Tracing graphics consist of the lines and line strings that are only drawn when the heat tracing on the symbol is enabled.

Batch Isometric Extraction 5 - 77

The following are guidelines that should be used when assembling components into a symbol. 1.

In this example, the symbol is created in a coordinate system where the x-axis is horizontal and the y-axis is vertical. The origin of the coordinate system should fall on a point of symmetry of the symbol. Thus, the y-axis will bisect the symbol. The symbol start point will usually fall on the x-axis.

2.

The only valid connect point geometries that you can define are the following: End point (for example, caps, plugs, blind flanges) Straight through (for example, valves, flanges) Offset (for example, eccentric reducer, flange) 90 degree change of direction (for example, angle valve) 3-way (for example, 3-way valve) 4-way (for example, 4-way valve) Other geometries must be obtained through the use of fitting taps. This requirement impacts the definition of symbols in the PDS environment. When defining a symbol in PDS, you must consider the ISOGEN symbol to which you will map when selecting the connect point geometry. If any connect point geometry does not map to an ISOGEN connect point geometry, extraction will not be performed properly. Example: In this example, a specialty item that resembles a lateral needs to be defined in both PDS and within ISOGEN, so that it properly extracts to a drawing. Appendix B states that no symbols exist with connect point geometry that satisfies the requirements of the speciality item. (In fact, you can map the specialty item to a TEXX (which is a tee); however, the symbology for a TEXX is not acceptable, and the TEXX can not be redefined.) In one solution, you can define the basic connect point skeleton of the item in both PDS and ISOGEN as a straight-through component. Although, the branch off the side can be a tap, you can not draw graphics that extend from the ISOGEN symbol for the branch. This is because you can not force ISOGEN to use a specific tap on the iso symbol. You must define several tap points and allow ISOGEN to choose the one that gives the best graphic representation of the component and connecting piping.

3.

When defining graphics that are drawn between the end prep symbols, your symbol definition should not contain any end prep graphics.

4.

When defining an offset fitting, the flow should go from top left to bottom right in the symbol coordinate system. For example, an eccentric reducer would be drawn with the large end on the left and the small end on the right, with the flat side down or at the bottom of the symbol. Flanged offset fittings must be created with the end prep graphics drawn integrally with the symbol.

5 - 78

5.

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

If angled fittings consist of two or more legs, all legs of a redefined angled fitting must be identical. When you define the angled fitting, you draw only a single leg. The other legs are created automatically by ISOGEN. The leg that you draw must be symmetrical about the x-axis of the symbol coordinate system. The start point of the leg must be to the left of the y-axis and the end point must be the pivot point or the origin of the symbol. All legs of an angled fitting must have a common pivot point (this requirement excludes redefinition of symbols like the angle block BA**).

Allowable and unallowable angled shapes 6.

A symbol can have up to nine tap points. When distributing tap points, observe the following rules. No more than three tap points can be placed on the x axis. No more than three tap points can be placed on the y axis. No more than three tap points can be placed above the x axis. No more than three tap points can be placed below the x axis. No more than three tap points can be placed left of the y axis. No more than three tap points can be placed right of the y axis. The previously-listed rules are not checked during symbol creation, but are verified when the symbol is written to the symbol library. The symbol will not be written if any of the limits are exceeded. To use tap points that are not on the x or y axis, when the symbol is drawn, observe the following rules: Outer tap points in the y-axis direction must be located at least 5 mm from the yaxis if they are to be used. Outer tap points in the x-axis direction must be located by at least the greater of 5 mm or 10% of the symbol length down the x-axis if they are to be used.

Batch Isometric Extraction 5 - 79

When a component with taps in the model is mapped to a symbol without taps, the tap point is assumed to be at the center of the symbol. None of the default ISOGEN symbols have defined tap points. A symmetrical symbol should have symmetrically distributed tap points so that ISOGEN always finds an appropriate tap point no matter how the symbol is oriented in a drawing.

Tap points on a flange 7.

Redefined symbols can not be too large. Otherwise, problems may occur with graphic interferences within the drawings. The amount of space reserved in a drawing for a symbol is always based on that of the old skey. Therefore, you should keep your symbol approximately the same size as the one it is based on. Using this criteria, most symbols should be between 8 and 12 mm long and 4 to 8 mm tall. Sketches of several of the original ISOGEN symbols appear in Appendix E: ISOGEN SKEY Dimensions.

8.

In redefining a valve operator symbol, you must follow these rules: The start point of the symbol must be the point where the operator attaches to the valve. The operator must be defined on its side with the stem lying along the x-axis and the handwheel lying along the y-axis.

9.

Two alternatives exist for defining pipe supports: The pipe support symbol does not have an orientation (like the default ISOGEN pipe support symbol). In this case, the start and end points of the symbol should be located at the same point. The graphics should be symmetrical about the xaxis.

5 - 80

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

The pipe support symbol has an orientation much like a valve operator does. In this case, the symbol definition should take place in two steps. — Redefine the pipe support so that it consists of only a start point, an end point, and a spindle point all located at the same place. The spindle key for this pipe support should be set so that a valve operator is attached when the symbol is placed. — Define the valve operator that will actually be the pipe support graphics. With these guidelines, you should select commands from the tutorial and locate the various symbol components. Each tutorial command is described in the following sections.

Start Point You use this command to specify the start point of the symbol. After you select the command, you must identify the point with either a data point or an XY= key-in. A symbol must contain one and only one start point. You can use the MicroStation view manipulation commands while drawing the symbol graphics. You must cancel out of view commands, however, before making subsequent tutorial selections. You can use the MicroStation element manipulation commands to modify graphics that you place to build the symbol. The system responds by placing a heavy cross at the point you specify.

End Point Use this command to define the end point of the symbol. After you select the command, you must identify the point with either a data point or an XY= key-in. A symbol must contain one and only one end point. The system responds by placing a heavy cross at the point you specify.

Fit Symbol Command The Fit command is used to perform a fit operation on the symbol definition area. Select the Fit command and place a data point in the view to fit the symbol. The system responds by doing a window area about the box that encompasses the current symbol definition.

Batch Isometric Extraction 5 - 81

Solid Line Select this command just prior to drawing symbol graphics with the MicroStation place line and place linestring commands. Symbol graphics can consist of lines and linestrings only. The system responds by setting the line code to solid.

Lagging Select this command just prior to drawing insulation graphics using the MicroStation place line and place linestring commands. Insulation graphics can consist of lines and linestrings only. The system responds by setting the line code to long dash.

Creating a User-defined Symbol Library

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

After drawing the symbol graphics with the Symbol Definition Software, you must generate a symbol library. To create the symbol library, select the Update Symbol Library button from the Isometric Extraction Utilities form.

Before Using This Command You must have created a design file containing user-defined symbols, and you must also have the corresponding symbol index file. The system performs the following processes when updating the symbol library. The system verifies that the symbol file (defined in the Isometric Symbol Editor Screen form) exists. If the file does not exist, the system displays an error message and returns to the Isometric Symbol Editor Screen form. The system verifies that the index file (defined in the Isometric Symbol Editor Screen form) exists. If the file does not exist, the system displays an error message and returns to the Isometric Symbol Editor Screen form. The system displays the following messages at the start of each phase of processing. Stroking design file contents... Converting ASCII symbols to binary... Upon completion, the system prompts Symbol library successfully created If any errors are encountered during processing, refer to the log file that is written to the ˜/pdiso/dat directory.

Using the Newly-created Symbol Library

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

To use the newly-created symbol library, you must first perform three actions: 1.

Edit the options file, and add the binary symbol library file name to the FILES table. Refer to The Options File, page 7 - 1 for more information on the FILES table.

2.

Edit the NEW_SYMBOL_KEYS table in the options file where necessary. Refer to The Options File, page 7 - 1 for more information on the NEW_SYMBOL_KEYS table.

3.

Modify the PDS to ISOGEN symbol map so that PDS symbols map to the newly-defined ISOGEN symbols.

5.3.9.4 Delete Drawing Records With Undefined Iso Type __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

This command deletes all isometric drawings that do not have an associated Type (fabrication, Spool, etc.). If you need to assign a Type to a drawing, one can be assigned by using the Revise Drawing command. All records that have been written to pdtable_185 in the project database must have an assigned iso Type or they cannot be extracted.

5 - 86

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

5.3.9.5 Generate FrameWorks Reference Dimension File __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The FrameWorks Reference Dimension File command allows you to generate an ASCII file that is used by Intergraph option 71 to place reference dimension in the isometric drawing. For more information on Intergraph option 71 refer to the section, The Options File. Structural elements are placed in FrameWorks Plus by using one of ten available cardinal points. Each cardinal point represents a different point on the cross-section of a structural member. For example, an I-beam can be placed using cardinal point 5 (CP5)which is the center of its cross section or it can be placed by CP6 the right-center point on the beam’s cross-section. The choice of cardinal point takes on additional relevance when using the Isometric Column Reference (Intergraph option 71) because this is the point that the pipeline will use as a reference.

In the previous graphic, the same pipeline is extracted twice. In the top extraction, column C_25 was placed using CP5 (center-center) while the bottom extraction was placed using CP6 (right-center). In both cases, the referenced column is in the same physical location and the position of the pipeline is unchanged. However, note that the easterly dimension varies by half the thickness of the column. Since the Structural Column Reference option (Intergraph option 71) references structural elements according to their active cardinal point at the time of placement. It is highly recommended that structural columns be placed by CP5 (center-center).

Batch Isometric Extraction 5 - 89

5.3.10 Create Batch Job Input __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ To extract isometrics using the batch software, you must create a batch job input file. The batch job file is an ASCII data file that is submitted to the batch extraction software as an input file. You create the batch input file by identifying which lines to create drawings for and setting the options that determine how the job will be processed. Lines can be selected for the batch input file using one of two methods. These include defining search criteria to select large groups of lines and selecting lines by line ID. Once a batch input file is created, it can be scheduled by using the Schedule Batch Job command. Refer to Schedule Batch Job, page 5 - 100 for more information. 1.

Select the Create Batch Job Input button from the Batch Environment form. The system displays the Create Batch Job Input form. When the accept button is selected on this Create Batch Job Input form, line ID records will be written to the batch job input file using this form’s current search criteria. Be sure that you do not select accept on this form unless you have set the appropriate search criteria. Select cancel (X) to exit the form without writing line records.

If the file already exists the system will display the Overwrite, Append and Review/Edit buttons. Select the Overwrite to overwrite the batch input file or select Append to append the information to the existing batch input file information. Select Review/Edit to display the batch input file in the default editor. The default editor is notepad. You can use the export variable PD_EDITOR to define a different default editor. 3.

Default Set Option Select the Default Set Option field to select another default set from the Isometric Extraction Default Sets form.

Batch Isometric Extraction 5 - 91

Select a default set from the form and select the accept button. The system returns to the Create Batch Job Input form and displays the selected default set and description in the Default Set Option field. 4.

Delete Existing Files / Save Existing Files toggle If the Delete Existing Files option is selected, the system will overwrite all miscellaneous files that were created as a result of a previous isometric generation. These files include any ISOGEN output you have enabled using the options file and error message files produced by the ISOGEN software. If the Save Existing Files option is selected, the system will not delete any of the generated miscellaneous files. This toggle will not purge old versions of the MTO neutral files. The batch extraction software uses the extraction number to name the neutral files. Example: The MTO neutral file is named as follows: iso name + sheet number + .b + extr number So, a MTO file named CW10022.b7 is the MTO neutral file for iso CW1002, sheet 2, from extraction number 7. As shown in the above example, the MTO neutral file generated by the ISOGEN interface is split up into multiple files by the batch extraction software. Each new MTO file contains the material associated with a single isometric drawing sheet.

5 - 92

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

If you choose not to delete the existing files, the existing iso will be copied to "output path"/isolast/. 5.

Do Not Save Details/Save Previous Details toggle If the Do Not Save Details option is selected, the system ignores any previously added graphics. If the Save Previous Details option is selected, the system adds all manually added MicroStation graphics of the previous isometric drawing version to the new version. Before using the Save Previous Details option, the MicroStation file, edg.exe, must be loaded locally to the workstation that will be used to process the isometric drawings. The software looks in the output directory (as specified in the area level data) for each drawing sheet as it is produced. If a drawing sheet is found, then all graphics that reside on levels 61 through 63 are merged into the new version of the drawing. This allows you to add manual details that will be retained from version to version of the drawing. Some changes, particularly those made to the isometric drawing itself, will not be acceptable or correct when merged into a new version of the drawing.

6.

Submit for Plotting / Do Not Plot toggle If the Submit for Plotting option is selected, the selected isometric drawings will be submitted for plotting. A Plot Request file name must be specified in the default set. For more information, see Define Default Sets, page 5 - 13 . If the Do Not Plot option is selected, none of the isometric drawings will be plotted.

7.

Increment Revision Number/Do Not Increment Revision Number toggle If the Increment Revision Number option is selected, the system will update the drawing revision block when an isometric is successfully generated. If the Do Not Increment Revision Number option is selected, the system will not update the revision block. You will encounter problems later when attempting to delete a drawing if a revision history does not exist for a drawing. Refer to Delete Drawing, page 5 - 46 for more information about deleting drawings. When the batch job is run, the system will use the inputs for By, Chk, Date and Descr to update the revision block for the drawing in the Project Control Database.

8.

By, Chk, Date, Descr To increment drawing revision numbers, key in information to these fields to specify the revision block data.

Batch Isometric Extraction 5 - 93

The data will be written back to the Project Control Database only if the isometric is successfully extracted. If you leave the Date field blank, the current date will be used. The Date field allows you to specify an issue date for the isometric that is different from the current date. If, for example, you are extracting a number of drawings over a period of a few days for issue on a given date, you should key in that issue date to this field. Rather than key in Chk initials at extraction time, you might want to update the Project Control Database with Chk and Aprv initials after the drawing has been plotted. 9.

Search Criteria: The following are search criteria that can be used separately or together to locate a drawing or group of drawings within an iso area. All defined search criteria must be met before a drawing can be included in an isometric extraction.

If the file name is valid, the remaining fields in the form will be given default values with the exception of the Run Time fields.

Batch Isometric Extraction 5 - 101

3.

System Log File Key in the name of a log file. This field allows you to create a log of the command execution as the job processes in batch. This log is useful when you are having difficulties getting the batch software to operate. It contains a log of all error messages issued by the various software modules used to create an isometric. The System log file (.job file) is different from the batch log file (.log file) created by the batch procedure. The system log file is named using the batch input file name together with a file extension of .job. The batch log file contains an entry for each attempted run together with an error code and/or message when the run fails. All .job and .log files are written to the same directory as the batch job input file. If this is not the case, have your system administrator check the hosts.nqs file to verify write permissions. If the batch job input file name remains the same, the .log file will maintain a cumulative history of each successive run.

4.

Job Name Key in a batch job name. This is the name for the batch run which will show up in the batch queue when you key in the qstat PDisocreate command. The default job name is the batch input file name.

5.

Process Queue Select one of the queues from the pull down list. The selected batch queue will extract the lines as defined in the batch input file. The queues displayed in the Process Queue field are chosen first from the queues defined in the PDiso_batch portion of the queue_descript file (located in the project directory). If no queues are defined in the queue_descript file, the system generates a Process Queue list from locally defined queues. Valid queue names include: PDiso_batch, PDiso_bat_1, PDiso_bat_*.

6.

Mail Notify Key in the email path of the machine that will be sent a mail message when the batch iso processing completes. A default for this field is provided by your system manager when the iso extraction product is installed on your system. The mail message contains the identification of the batch job input file, the Project Control Database name, a brief error message, and an error code. The error code is explained in more detail in Appendix A.

7.

Plot Queue Select one of the queues from the pull down list. This field is only displayed if the file defined in the Batch Job Input File field was created with the Submit for Plotting toggle turned on. Refer to Create Batch Job Input, page 5 - 89 for more information on defining batch job input files.

5 - 102

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

The queues displayed in the Plot Queue field are chosen first from the queues defined in the PDiso_plot portion of the queue_descript file (located in the project directory). If no queues are defined in the queue_descript file, the system generates a Plot Queue list from locally defined queues. If locally defined queues are used, only the pipe queues that are defined will be displayed in the Plot Queue pull down list. To display local device queues, create a pipe queue that points to the device queue. Valid queue names include: PDiso_plot, PDiso_plot_1, PDiso_plt_*. 8.

Plot Copies Keyin the number of copies to be plotted for each extracted line.

9.

Do Not Generate PDME Data / Generate PDME Data When set to Generate PDME Data, ISOGEN creates a .pdm file in the iso output directory. The resulting .pdm file is used when exporting data to PDME (Plant Data Maintenance Environment). Refer to the Export to PDME command in the PDS Project Administrator document for information. When using this option, Intergraph options 4 (ISOGEN component vs sheet number file) and 20 (Intergraph MTO Neutral File) must be set to 1 (active).

10.

Do Not Extract Existing Sheets / Re-Extract Existing Sheets When set to Do Not Extract Existing Sheets, ISOGEN extracts the line and determines the amount of information that will be placed on each sheet and splits them accordingly. When set to Re-Extract Existing Sheets, ISOGEN extracts the line normally. However, unlike the previous toggle setting, the system honors the previous extraction’s pagination. Refer to Repeatability, page 15 - 1 for additional information. This toggle should be set to Do Not Extract Existing Sheets if extensive changes are being made to a pipeline. If extensive revisions are made to a line and the previous pagination is honored, the result may be a sheet that contains too much information to decipher.

11.

Do Not Save Sheet Extraction Data / Save Sheet Extraction Data When the toggle is set to Save Sheet Extraction Data, the system generates and stores repeating data in the project and design databases. Repeating data includes such information as: traversal startpoint (saved to the project database) and the extracted item’s iso sheet number (saved to the design database). Refer to Repeatability, page 15 - 1 for additional information. This toggle should be set to Do Not Save Sheet Extraction Data until the design is stable and your isometrics are ready to be issued for the first time.

Batch Isometric Extraction 5 - 103

12.

Verify On / Verify Off toggle Select the Verify On option to turn on batch job verification. Select the Verify Off option to turn off batch job verification. When verification is on, a log of all system commands executed by the batch extraction procedure is saved in the iso output directory. Do not enable verification when large numbers of iso’s are being created since the resulting log files will use a large amount of disk space.

13.

Debug On / Debug Off toggle Select the Debug On option to enable the debugging logic in the batch job. Select the Debug Off option to disable the debugging logic in the batch job. The debugging logic causes the values of several batch procedure variables to be displayed in the system log file. This option is useful for tracking down problems or submitting problems to Intergraph.

14.

Submit Batch Immediately/Delay Batch Submit Time toggle Select the Submit Batch Immediately option to run the job immediately. Select the Delay Batch Submit Time to specify a run time for the job. Define the run time by keying in the day of the week (Mon, Tue, etc.), the time and then select AM or PM.

15.

After all fields contain the appropriate information, select the accept button. As described earlier, a batch job log file (containing an entry for each attempted extraction) is created and updated as the batch job executes. Examine this log after the job finishes to see that all drawings were successfully completed. When drawings fail, consult Appendix A for a more detailed explanation of the error code and message found in the log file. Also, check the .err files produced by the ISOGEN interface to make sure that the drawings do not contain errors. The batch shell marks each entry in the batch job input file as it is processed. Therefore, the batch procedure can be stopped and then restarted at any later time without causing drawings that have already completed to be rerun. If the system goes down and the job is not restarted automatically, it can be restarted using the Schedule Batch Job command. Drawings that have already been created will not be re-executed.

Interpreting the HITS Report 6 - 1

6. Interpreting the HITS Report

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The HITS report is a diagnostic tool generated by the Intergraph interface to ISOGEN. You can use this report to analyze the data collected from the 3-D piping model when a problem extracting an isometric occurs. This report can help you determine whether or not the problem exists in your model, in the ISOGEN interface or in ISOGEN itself. The HITS report filename is formed from the output isometric design filename. Isometric design filename is concatenated with the file extension .h. For example, if the isometric design filename is OWS1101.ISO then the HITS report filename will be OWS1101.h. The report is created in the default directory at the time the iso is created. One of the options in the ISOGEN interface defaults file allows you to generate a HITS report only and not an intermediate data file (IDF). You may not always want to generate an IDF with a HITS report. The run time to generate both an IDF and a HITS report is significantly longer than the run time to generate a HITS report only.

6.2 Section 1: Basic Input Data and Raw Design File Data __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The first section of the HITS report consists of basic input data and raw design data. The basic input data consists of the date the report was executed, project name and a list of model names that were extracted. Each column of the raw design file data is described below. Name

If Intergraph option 61 is set to 1, the name will be the first four characters of the component item name. Otherwise, a generic item name will be output.

occ

The component database occurrence number (excluding the partition number). Note that some PIPE components have an occurrence number greater than 30000. This occurs whenever olet type components are attached to a pipe. The software breaks these pipes into multiple sections. The newly created pieces of pipe receive occurrence numbers in the 30000+ range to distinguish them from the original pipe.

cp #

The connect point number

x,y,z

The coordinate in the design file coordinate system and is not adjusted for the global origin

node

A node number assigned to all connect points other than the origin. A special node number, -1, is reserved for line endpoints. Two connect points that have the same node number are connected to each other in the model.

direct

A direction list number. The direction list number identifies all those connect points that lie together on a straight line.

sect

Section number [always 0]

flags

A bit mask used internally by the software

topo

Topos [always 0]

branch

Branch flag [always 0]

sg_occ

The segment occurrence number. All connect points belong to or are owned by a segment in the piping model. This is the occurrence number of that owner segment.

Interpreting the HITS Report 6 - 13

6.3 Section 2: Design File Data Sorted by Coordinate __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The second section of the HITS report consists of raw design file data for each connect point of the piping components that make up the network that is being extracted. The database search criteria (as defined in the options file LINE_ID_DEFINITION) from section 1 is used to find all of the appropriate segments. Once the segments are found, the software collects all of the components that are attached to the segments. Section 2 is the result of this activity. Section 2 contains several columns of data. Each column is described below: Name

If Intergraph option 61 is set to 1, the name will be the first four characters of the component item name. Otherwise, a generic item name will be output.

occ

The database occurrence number of the component (excluding the partition number). [Note that some PIPE components have an occurrence number greater than 30000. This occurs whenever olet type components are attached to a pipe. The software "breaks" these pipes into multiple sections. The newly created pieces of pipe receive occurrence numbers in the 30000+ range to distinguish them from the original pipe.]

cp #

The connect point number.

x,y,z

The coordinate in the design file coordinate system and is unadjusted for the global origin.

node

A node number assigned to all connect points other than the origin. A special node number , -1, is reserved for line endpoints. Note that two connect points that have the same node number are "connected" to each other in the model.

direct

A direction list number. The direction list number identifies all those connect points that lie together on a straight line.

sect

Always 0 here. Section number is discussed later in this section.

flags

A bit mask used internally by the software.

topo

Always 0 here. Topo’s are discussed later in this section.

branch-

Always 0 here. The branch flag is discussed later in this section.

sg_occ-

The segment occurrence number. All connect points "belong to" or "are owned" by a segment in the piping model. sg_occ is the occurrence number of that owner segment.

Section 2 is primarily used for examining the amount of data pulled in from the models through the database search criteria. Some of the data for a specific connect point is sometimes useful — particularly the occurrence number.

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

6.4 Section 3: Tracing Data __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Section 3 of the report, Tracing Data is a record of the actions the software is taking in building the internal data structure of the piping network. This section is primarily useful to Intergraph for investigating software problems. The last statement in section 3 states how many disconnected sections of piping exist in the network identified in the database search criteria. If the number of sections is greater than 1 then the line is not extracted and the intermediate data file is not generated. ISOGEN does not allow multiple, disconnected sections of piping to be extracted into a single iso. The following is a list of possible reasons why a network might be disconnected and some suggested solutions: 1.

The database search criteria identified more than one pipeline and the pipelines are not connected together. The solution here is to change the search criteria so that only the piping that you really want to extract is pulled in.

2.

The pipeline being extracted is incomplete and portions of it do not have components on it. The solution is to place all of the components on the line.

3.

Although the line is finished, there is a part of it that appears to be connected, but is not. For a line to be considered connected the connect points from two different components must be within 20 uors of each other. In this case you should examine section 2 of the HITS report to find a connect point whose node number is -1 (which indicates that it is a line endpoint) even though you know it should be connected to something. This is usually quite simple when the line is small. When you find the connect point, use the coordinate to view and repair the disconnected graphics. When the line is complicated, you can use section 4 of the HITS report (see the section Tracing Data) to make a sketch that identifies the disconnected point.

Interpreting the HITS Report 6 - 15

6.5 Section 4: Design File Data Sorted by Topo __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Section 4 of the HITS report is probably the most important one. This section is really a print—out of the internal data structure that represents the piping network. This data is organized on the basis of topos. A topo is a construction used to group the data representing the pipeline topology. By definition a topo is a string of piping that starts at a network endpoint or a branch point and ends at a network endpoint or another branch point. A pipeline network may consist of a single topo or dozens of topos depending upon its configuration.

Figure 6-1. Example line consisting of one topo. The line in Figure 6-1 consists of one topo because it does not contain any branch points. The beginning of the topo is a line endpoint as is the end of the topo.

Figure 6-2. Example line consisting of two topos

6 - 16

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

The line in Figure 6-2 contains two topos due to the branch component in it (the tee). The first topo consists of the line from endpoint 1 to endpoint 2 (the header of the pipeline). The second topo consists of the piping from the center of the tee to line endpoint 3.

Figure 6-3. Example line consisting of three topos The line in Figure 6-3 contains three topos because there are two branches in it. The first topo again consists of the line from endpoint 1 to endpoint 4. The second topo consists of the line from connect point 1 of weldolet 1 to endpoint 2. The third topo consists of the line from connect point 1 of weldolet 2 to endpoint 3.

Figure 6-4. Topo’s on a line that contains a loop The line in Figure 6-4 consists of two topos. One topo is comprised of the line header from endpoint 1 to endpoint 2. The other topo starts at the center of one tee and goes to the center of the other tee.

Interpreting the HITS Report 6 - 17

The data in section 4 of the HITS report is sorted primarily by topo number. At the very beginning there are several lines where the topo number is zero. These are component origins which do not receive topo numbers or node numbers — they should be ignored. Subsequent to the lines where the topo number is zero are lines for the first, second and subsequent topos. The secondary sort key for the data in section 4 of the report is node number. Thus, within a topo the data is sorted by node number. This results in connect points with the same node number being adjacent to each other in the report. The result is that section 4 of the HITS report contains a trace of each topo of the line. Example 1: The following is an excerpt from a HITS report section 4:

Name

cp#

node

E90L E90L PIPE PIPE E90L E90L PIPE PIPE GATR GATR PIPE PIPE

-1 1 1 2 2 3 3 4 4 5 5 -1

topo 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1

This trace consists of a single topo. The first endpoint is connect point 1 of a 90 degree elbow. Connect point 2 of the elbow is connected to connect point 1 of a pipe. Following this logic, the sequence of components starting from the top is: elbow -> pipe -> elbow -> pipe -> valve -> pipe. This same procedure may be followed to sketch out each network topo. Topo sketches are useful if you are interested only in the sequence of components in a particular region of the line. If you are interested in the entire network, connect the topos together. The topos are connected together by the branch column in section 4 of the report. The branch column is used together with the last column. The last column in section 4 is a report line number. You can see by looking back at Figure 6-1 that the last column starts out at 1 and is incremented for each line in section 4. When the branch column contains a nonzero value then this indicates that the node is a branch point. The value of branch refers you to the line number of the report where the connecting topo begins. Example 2: The following is an excerpt from a HITS report section 4:

The network is composed of two topos. Topo 1 is simply two pipes. Topo 2 consists of a weldolet connected to a piece of pipe. Note that the occurrence number of the second pipe in topo 1 indicates the model contains a single pipe which the software split into two at the olet. Figure 6-5 shows the Network for Example 5.

Figure 6-5. Network for Example 2 The value for branch at node 1 is 5. Looking at line 5 in the report we see that it is the first line of topo 2. Thus topo 2 connects to topo 1 at node 1. This is confirmed by the fact that the node numbers where topo 2 connects to topo 1 match. That is, the WOL cp1, PIPE (occ 10) cp2, and PIPE (occ 30001) cp1 are all node number 1. The value of branch for cp1 of the WOL is -2. The negative sign indicates that this is a "back pointer". The back pointer is exactly the same as any other branch value except that it (usually) points back to a previous topo rather than forward to a subsequent topo. Note that where two or more topos are connected together the branch numbers must agree. In Example 5 they do. The back pointer on topo 2 points back to line 2 while the forward pointer on topo 1 points to line 5. In Example 2, the branch flag pointed to the start point of the connecting topo. It can also happen that the branch flag points to the endpoint of the connecting topo. In this case you traverse the topo in reverse order. Example 3:

In Example 3, topo 3 consists of pipe, elbow, pipe, pipe. Topo 7 is a typical drain assembly— plug, block valve, nipple, sockolet. Topo 7 connects to topo 3 at line 53 in the report (the value of branch on line 25 is 53 and the value of branch of line 53 is -25). In this case, the value of branch on topo 3 points to the bottom of topo 7 and the network structure is obtained by moving up topo 3 rather than down (See Figure 6-6).

In Example 4, the tee is slightly different from the olet type components. Branch flags are set on both connect points 1 and 2 of the T and the node numbers do not match where topo 2 connects to topo 1. This is a consequence of the fact that node numbers are not assigned to component origins. See Figure 6-7 which shows the Network for Example 4.

In Example 5, topo 1 consists of a pipe connected to an eccentric reducer which in turn is connected to another pipe. Notice, however, that the branch flag is set to two different numbers on the reducer. This indicates that the reducer is tapped twice. The branch flag on the first connect point points to the topo connected at the first tap while the branch flag on the second connect point points to the topo connected to the second tap. A tap is always a branch starting point and thus is always the start point of a new topo. Refer to Figure 6-8, which shows the network for Example 5.

Interpreting the HITS Report 6 - 21

Figure 6-8. Network for Example 5 If you generate some HITS reports and practice sketching out the pipeline networks, you will become familiar with the report contents and better understand the concepts presented in the examples above.

6.6 Section 5: Design File Data in IDF Order __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Section 5 of the HITS report contains a record of how the network is traversed as the intermediate data file is being generated. The software examines the network of piping and chooses the best (that is, the one least likely to result in problems from ISOGEN) topo to begin the network traversal on. ISOGEN prefers certain navigation sequences over others and the interface software tries to choose the optimal sequence. ISOGEN also requires that the traversal of the network be branch first order. This means that whenever a branch is encountered in the network, the traversal must head down the branch before continuing down the header. To traverse the network in branch first order manner you start on the header topo and travel connect point by connect point until the value of branch is greater than 0 at some node. When branch is positive then you jump down to the new topo and start traversing it until you come to another branch or to the end. If you encounter another branch then you must jump again to another topo. When the end of the topo is found then you return to the topo from which you jumped and continue tracing. Example 6: The following is an example of a network:

Name PIPE PIPE T T PIPE PIPE T PIPE PIPE

Occ 10 10 11 11 12 12 11 13 13

cp# 1 2 1 2 1 2 3 1 2

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

In Example 6, topo 1 consists of a header, two pipes, and the run of a tee. Topo 2 consists of a branch, the branch leg of a tee and a branch pipe. Following the rules given above for traversal of the network would yield the following trace:

Name PIPE T T PIPE T PIPE

Interpreting the HITS Report 6 - 23

Step 1 travels from one end of the first pipe to the other. Following the first pipe we travel into the tee. Notice that although the origins do not have node numbers they appear in the traversal whenever a change in direction occurs. This means that, for the tee, the traversal occurs from connect point 1 to the origin in step 2. At this point the branch flag is positive and so a jump occurs to topo 2. On topo 2 we travel from the origin of the tee to connect point 3 (which is the branch connect point) in step 3. In step 4 we travel down a pipe which is the last component on the topo. We then jump back to topo 1 and in step 5 travel from the tee origin to connect point 2. Finally, in the last step we traverse the remaining pipe on topo 1. Refer to Figure 6-9 for an illustration of this traversal. The header topo number can be found by examining the first line in the traversal. In this case the first line consists of PIPE — occurrence 10. Looking at the network description, observe that PIPE — occurrence 10 is on topo number 1. This makes topo 1 the header topo.

Figure 6-9. Traversal in Example 6 In ISOGEN terminology one step in the above trace is termed a component leg. Straight through components like pipe, flanges, and valves consist of one leg. Change of direction components like elbows, angle valves and so on consist of two legs. Branch components like tee’s, olets, 3-way and 4-way valves and crosses consist of three or four legs. In Example 9, the last leg of the tee is given a leg number of 4. By definition only 4-way components have a leg 3 (which would correspond to the 2nd branch leg). Branches off from components formed by taps are termed branch legs and are not given a number. Branch legs are treated as other branches are though. When a tapped component is encountered in the network then all the tapped legs must be traced before continuing down the topo. Although olet type components have a different connect point skeleton than tee’s do they are treated similarly in the network trace. This is highlighted in the next example:

In Example 7, the first leg of the olet goes from connect point 1 to connect point 1. It is analogous to the step with the tee where traversal goes from connect point to the origin. In this case the traversal does not go anywhere and therefore is called a zero length leg. The second leg traverses from cp1 to cp2 — analogous to the previous example’s traversal from the tee origin to cp3. After the branch topo has been traversed we return to the olet for leg 4 which again goes from cp1 to cp1 — another zero length leg. This step is analogous to going from the origin to cp3 in the previous example. Notice also the traversal through the elbow. Since the elbow causes a change of direction, it is traversed in two legs: 1) from cp1 to the origin and 2) from the origin to cp2. Sometimes the traversal of the network requires traveling into the branch leg of a branch component. When this happens the leg numbers are assigned somewhat differently on the branch component.

In Example 8, a lower numbered topo (topo 4) contains a back pointer to a higher numbered topo (topo 7). Whenever this happens, the traversal will enter branch. The trace for this part of the network would be:

In this example, the branch leg of the tee is leg 1 since it is traversed first. Legs 2 and 4 are assigned arbitrarily in this situation and so tracing may go either way (ISOGEN has no preference). Refer to Figure 6-10 which shows this network traversal.

6.7 Using the HITS Report to Solve Problems __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ When you have difficulty extracting a line, the first thing you should do in analyzing the problem is to sketch out the network. Often this is enough to identify the problem. If the structure in section 4 of the report is incorrect — that is, the topos are not correctly defined and connected or the pointers appear incorrect — then ISOGEN’s input will be wrong and the drawing will definitely be incorrect. When the data structure represented in section 4 of the report is incorrect then you can conclude that either the interface has a bug or there is a problem in the model. Typical model problems include such things as disconnected sections and overlapping components or pipes. When the modeler has inadvertently placed two pipes on top of each other you will get an error message at the top of the HITS report stating this. The message will also report a node number where the problem was detected. By getting the coordinate of the node you can pinpoint where in the model the problem occurs. This can also occur where the connect points of components overlap each other and are not properly connected. Notice that one of the columns in section 4 of the report is called section. In a correct network all of the topos should have a value of 1 in this column. When the network is composed of multiple disconnected sections, however, some topos will contain a value other than 1. In this case the network for each section should be sketched out. It should be apparent after doing this where the different sections should have been connected in the model and, therefore, where the trouble spot is. Another problem that might occur is that components that should all be colinear are not. This is detected by examining the direction list number. If the direction list changes for example from one pipe to another then a problem exists in the model and the line can not be extracted properly. Mismatches between the design file and database can also cause iso extraction failures but these types of problems should be trapped and reported adequately in other areas of the software. You should not need to rely on the HITS report to find these kinds of problems. When the data structure in section 4 of the report is correct then the traversal in section 5 should be examined. Even if the network is correct, some other bug can cause the network traversal to fail. Again, if the traversal is incorrect then ISOGEN will definitely fail. When both the network and the traversal are correct, there is most likely a problem with ISOGEN. When ISOGEN is at fault, then one of the following scenarios is true: 1.

The drawing appears correct for the most part but some aspect of it is incorrect. When this happens there is usually some option or combination of options that have been enabled that resulted in the problem. The best way to find the cause of the problem is to start with a basic drawing generation setup that contains few "special" options. Then add a few options at a time until the problem is reproduced. Finally, through a process of elimination identify the option that is causing the problem. All failures of this type should be reported to Intergraph.

Interpreting the HITS Report 6 - 27

2.

The drawing or one sheet of it is scrambled — a total failure. When this happens it is usually the case that disabling options will not result in the drawing working — though sometimes it does. The best thing to do when this happens is to try and reextract a smaller portion of the line if possible. The failure should also be reported to Intergraph. When any sheet of an ISOGEN drawing fails, ALL sheets from the same pipeline may contain errors and are suspect.

7. The Options File

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The options file consists of a set of options and tables that drive the interface to ISOGEN. You can modify the options file to customize the drawings that are produced by ISOGEN. See the appendices for an example of an options file. Information contained in the remainder of this manual assumes that you have knowledge of the following: The PDS database structure

PDS Reference Database The Label Description Library Utility The Standard Note Library Material Description Libraries

7-2

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

7.1 File Structure __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The options file is composed of two sets of options and several tables. Each option block and table is preceded in the options file by a keyword that identifies it. The keyword must begin in column 1 and should NOT be surrounded by single quotes. The keywords and data that follow them can appear in any order in the options file. You can put comments to the right of any table entry but not to the right of a keyword. You can also have comments preceding any keyword or following the last entry in a table. Comments either preceding a keyword or following the last table entry must have an exclamation point (!) in column 1 to identify it as a comment. Keywords are always followed by a number - starting in any column - that identifies the number of table entries. It is valid for the number to be zero, indicating that there are no table entries. If the number that precedes a table does not match the number of entries in the table, a warning message is generated at the time the table is read in. Entries in tables consist of a row of numbers and sometimes character strings that are separated by commas ( , ). Character strings that are part of a table entry MUST be surrounded by single quotes (’ ’). A typical table in the options file might appear as:

TABLE_KEYWORD nrows n1, n2, ’c1’, n3, ... . . . m1, m2, ’cm’, m3, ...

Where: TABLE_KEYWORD

is the table key word discussed above.

nrows

is the number of table entries.

n1, n2, ...

are numbers in the first table entry.

’c1’

is a character string in the first entry.

m1, m2, ...

are numbers in the last table entry.

’cm’

is a character string in the last entry.

The options file keywords consist of the following: ISOGEN_OPTIONS_BLOCK INTERGRAPH_OPTIONS_BLOCK FILES

7.2 ISOGEN_OPTIONS_BLOCK __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The ISOGEN options block is a group of options that are input directly to ISOGEN. These options do not effect the ISOGEN interface but, control the different characteristics of drawing output. However, some options selected in the ISOGEN options block might require that entries be defined in certain of the options file tables in order to work properly. The ISOGEN options block consists of 140 numbers arranged in 10 rows of 14. Each number is referred to as a "word" in the options block. Row 1 contains words 1 through 14, row 2 contains 15 through 28 and so on. The positioning of a number within a word is important. Thus, in editing the options block be sure to keep the units digit of the entry in the same column. The following options should not be changed from their default settings. These options are not used in the Intergraph environment. Words ______

Function _________

1 7 31 32 33 43-51 55-57 58 131

Plot length control Drawing control Iso output file Plotter scale factor Pipe detailed Wastage factors Diagnostic printing Clear screen Test parameter Be careful when changing words 34 (picture scale) and 38 (split control). Values other than the default sometimes result in drawing failure.

Be careful modifying words 115 (angular tolerance) and 116 (linear tolerance). Large values of these options can cause sloped lines to be shown incorrectly.

The Drawing control option (word 7) must be left at 0. ISOGEN will sometimes fail if forced to put more information on a sheet than it determines it can fit. You can minimize the number of sheets produced by increasing the sheet size.

Option 8 (dimension line distance) does not work when it is set to give a dimension standout greater than 25 mm.

In general, ISOGEN is more successful with a large sheet size than a small one.

The Options File 7 - 5

You can create virtually any size sheet - including one with a user-defined title block by using the drawing margin options (words 10-13) and the drawing size options (words 14-16). User-defined graphics in reference files must be positioned in drawing margins or in a reserved strip along the bottom of the drawing (option 35) in order for stacking of multisheet drawings to work properly.

1

Enable "CONNECTION NOT FOUND" message at line end points where no connecting component is found. (Does not apply to plugs, caps, and blind flanges.) This option can be used to highlight the fact that no connecting component was found at a line endpoint. When no connecting component is found then implied materials cannot be generated at that endpoint. This option can make checking of the drawings easier.

0

Do not adjust connect point coordinates to the face-of-flange.

1

Adjust connect point coordinates to the face-of-flange. In the piping model, component connect points are placed midway through the gasket at flanged connections. When this option is disabled, dimensioning on the iso also goes to the center of the gasket. When the option is enabled, dimensioning is to the face-of-flange.

val

Tolerance for considering valve operators and eccentric reducers to be skewed. Val is the maximum direction cosine times 1000. The default value is 10 (or .01).

10

0

The commodity code description includes consideration of component schedule. Therefore, do not append the component schedule to the material description

1

Commodity code description does not include consideration of schedule. Therefore, the component schedule is appended to the material description.

Option 10 is not needed if label description library numbers, which output schedules, are embedded ([ ]) within material descriptions found in the Material Description Library. During extraction, the labels are expanded in the material description. For more information on the Label Description Library and the Material Description Library, refer to the Reference Data Manager document.

The material description for an elbow appears as follows in the material description library where label 403 is defined to Output Component Schedule:

"WELD ELL BE [403] CS ASTM A234-WPB"

7 - 10

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

At extraction time, the label description library number [403] is expanded so that the description placed in the drawing is:

"WELD ELL BE STD WT CS ASTM A234-WPB"

These embedded attributes can also be included in the material descriptions for implied items like bolts and gaskets. 11

val

Piping component connection tolerance in uor’s. The default value is 20 uor’s. If the space between connect points is greater than the value defined by this option, the pipes/components are not considered connected.

12

val

Number of characters after which a line feed should be inserted in instrument tag numbers for display in an instrument bubble. (See also ISOGEN option number 123.) The following example assumes that the instrument tag number is INST-001.

Search continuation areas defined in the Add Iso Area or Revise Iso Area forms for continuation items only. The database partitions of the models contained in the primary area (the area listed in the batch input file) are the only models scanned for the pipeline to be extracted as defined by the LINE_ID_DEFINITION section of the options file. The remaining models that are attached as references are scanned for continuation items, both pipeline and equipment nozzles. If the same pipeline, as defined by the LINE_ID_DEFINITION, continues into another area, a continuation note is displayed on the iso that points to the same line name as the iso being extracted. Search continuation areas for LINE_ID_DEFINITIONs and continuation items. Any items that match the line ID will be included in the output isometric. All of the models from all of the pipeline continuation areas defined in the Revise Iso Area form is scanned for the line to extract. Also, all of the reference models are scanned for continuation items (both pipeline and equipment nozzles). If the same pipeline, as defined by the LINE_ID_DEFINITION, continues into another area, and the area is listed in the Revise Iso Area form, the pipeline is included in the extraction. NOTE: When set to 1, option 60 increases iso extraction time. It is recommended that option 60 be set to 0 unless the line to be extracted extends across multiple areas.

2

Search all areas of the project for LINE_ID_DEFINITIONs and continuation items ignoring the continuation settings in the Revise Iso Area form. ISOGEN searches every piping model in the project for the pipeline to be extracted and also searches every equipment model for nozzle continuation items. NOTE:

Structural Column Reference

This option allows you to place reference dimensions from a structural column or grid line to one item on the isometric. WARNING: Before using option 71 you must have an up-to-date FrameWorks Reference Definition File that provides the location of all structural components and grid lines in the project. See Generate FrameWorks Reference Dimension File, page 5 - 86.

7 - 38

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

This option references structural elements according to their active cardinal point at the time of placement. It is highly recommended that structural columns be placed by CP5 (center-center) if it is anticipated that the Iso Structural Reference feature will be used. See Generate FrameWorks Reference Dimension File, page 5 - 86. NOTE: Since a single reference file is used for the entire project, no structural models can be excluded from being referenced. Hence, there is no selectivity as to what structural column or grid line will be referenced on the iso. The referenced structural element will always be the one nearest to the start of the pipeline being extracted. If a FAIL message appears on the isometric drawing and the .err file is reporting a (35:2012) DATA FAULT, DOUBLEBACK PIPE error, refer to ISOGEN message file errors section of this document for information on the nature of this error. This Intergraph option has multiple switch settings (such as A, B, C, D). Intergraph switch settings are read from right to left (D-C-B-A). For example, if this option is set to 21, 1 represents switch position A and 2 represents switch position B.

7.4 The Files Table __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The Files table contains the names of several external files which are used by the ISOGEN interface. The entries in this table are order dependent and must be in the order shown below. All files may be defined as: network address: /directory path/file name. For example: pdscert: /usr/isofiles/symbol.map 1.

The PDS to ISOGEN symbol map This table maps PDS component names to ISOGEN symbol names. The format and contents of the table are discussed in more detail in the section PDS-to-ISOGEN Symbol Map. This library is required and must be specified.

2.

The ISOGEN user-defined symbol library This is a library of ISOGEN symbols that has either been translated from the VAX (see the README file for translation information) or has been added to those delivered with the ISOGEN product. This library is optional and need not be specified.

3.

The label description library This is a library of user-defined labels which are based on database attributes. Creation of library entries is discussed in the PDS Reference Data Manager document. This file specification is redundant in that a label description library is already referenced by piping model files. However, if you specify it here, you can have a separate library that is used specifically for iso extraction and for no other purpose. If this entry is left blank then the library referenced by the piping model file is used instead.

4.

The valve / valve operator symbol map (VALOPR table) This file contains a table that can be used to map a PDS valve and valve operator combination to a different symbol than that mapped by valve alone. This table is discussed in the section The Valve/Operator Table.

The Options File 7 - 43

In order to use this file, Intergraph options block option 31 must be set to 1.

This is an optional file name.

5.

The mto neutral file map This file contains the tables which govern the format of the Intergraph mto neutral file. Refer to The MTO Neutral File Record Map, page 12 - 1 for more information. In order to use this table, Intergraph options block option 20 must be set to 1.

6.

Reserved

7.

The Title Block Tables File This is an optional file containing tables that govern the generation of text that is to be inserted into a drawing title block by the batch extraction software. When you specify this table, you must also enable option 34 in the Intergraph options block.

8.

The Notes Table This file is optional and contains data that can be mapped to the title block by the batch extraction software. The table is accessed through the Title Block Tables File. The Notes Table allows you to map data to the title block which is not stored in the database.

9.

Center of Gravity Weight Library This is an optional library that generates center of gravity calculations for ISOGEN. For more information on center of gravity calculations, see Center of Gravity Calculation, page 19 - 2 . In order to use this library, Intergraph options block option 63 must be set to 1.

10.

Detail Sketch Facility Cell Library This is a cell library which contains the cells specified in the DETAIL_SKETCH_FACILITY section of the options file.

7 - 44

11.

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

Drawing Definition File This file allows you to customize line weight, size and output level of the data on the isometric drawing.

12.

Welds Definition / Format File This file specifies the format of the weld box that will be appear on the isometric drawing. It is also used to define the weld report.

13.

Material List Definition File This file allows you to define the format of a STYLE 2 or STYLE 3 Material Take Off.

14.

Basic Bending Parameters File This file can be used as a basic set of input to a bending machine. The 14th entry in the FILES section of the options file will contain the name of this file. If the first character of the entry is *, the generated file will be isoname.bnd; where isoname is the name used in creating the isometric design file name. If this entry contains a node, directory and filename, the bending information is appended to that filename for each extracted line. If this entry is left blank, a bending parameters file will not be generated.

The Options File 7 - 45

7.5 USER_DEFINED_WELDS __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This table allows you to to assign a weld symbol to a particular weld type. ISOGEN, versions 5.0 or later, allow you to create a user-defined weld symbol by using the symbol definition software. Once created, the new weld symbol graphics should be proportionate to other user-defined symbols. The newly created symbol should be mapped to a specific weld type in the USER_DEFINED_WELDS section of the options file. Note that the weld symbol is not mapped in the isomap.tbl file. By using the following table format, you can define which SKEY is used with each weld type. For example, if a weld type codelist number is defined to use the SKEY FFWT, ISOGEN generates the appropriate text and adds extra material as defined in the ISOGEN section of the options file. The format of a table entry is: VTF, VAL1, VAL2, ...,VALn, WELDTYPE, SYM

Where: VTF

is a number indicating the number of values to follow (maximum of 20 values per line.

VAL1-VALn

are the weld type attribute values that will be mapped to the symbol defined (SYM).

WELDTYPE

is a number 1-3 where: 1: SHOP 2: FIELD 3: OFFSHORE

SYM

is the ISOGEN weld symbol name.

7 - 46

If the table is not defined or a weld type code list value is not included in the table, the following action is taken: For more information, see Weld Types and Mapping, page 16 - 3 .

codelist value (from codelist 1100, Weld Type) 1 = No weld 11-20 = ’WW’ (shop weld) else = ’WF’ (field fit weld)

Example 1: Generating a user-defined weld from codelist values Show the required entries to generate the following welds: a site weld symbol when codelist value 22 is used. This is a field weld, but does not require extra material to be added. an offshore field fit weld symbol for code list values 30-33 inclusive. a mitre offshore weld symbol for codelist value 40. The format of the table entry is:

USER_DEFINED_WELDS 3 1, 22, 2, ’WS’ 4, 30, 31, 32, 33, 3, ’WOF’ 1, 40, 3, ’WM’

The Options File 7 - 47

7.6 WELD_PREFIX __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This table is used to add a prefix to an isometric weld number that is contained within an enclosure. The WELD_PREFIX table also allows the prefix to be positioned on the drawing frame as a form of general note about weld identification. The weld prefix may also be included as part of the output in the user-defined weld summary report. The format of a table entry is:

WELD_PREFIX 1 #, ’TEXT’

Where: #

is a number 0 through 3 where: 0 - is a general weld prefix to apply to all weld types 1 - is a shop weld prefix to apply only to fabrication welds 2 - is a site/field weld prefix to apply only to erection welds 3 - offshore weld prefix to apply only to offshore welds

’TEXT’

is the actual prefix to be used If all four prefixes are defined, the general weld prefix (setting 0) will be ignored.

Example 1: Defining a Weld Prefix Determine the table entry that would have all offshore welds have the prefix ’OFFSHORE-’ on the iso drawing. The table entry would be:

WELD_PREFIX 1 3, ’OFFSHORE-’

7.7 DETAIL_SKETCH_FACILITY __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This table is used to generate a detailed sketch or information note for specific item. Any component meeting the specified value defined in this table generates a defined detail sketch or note. The defined value must exactly match the attribute or label. You can generate general or specific notes for components and spools. The general information note places a note on each isometric sheet of the pipeline. The specific information note only places a note on the specific isometric sheet that contains the item generating the note. You can define up to 300 Detail Sketch Facility table entries.

The format of a table entry is:

TABLE, COL, LABEL, ’COL VAL’, ’DET NAME’

Where: TABLE, COL

is the table, column specification of the attribute that will be checked and compared with ’COL VAL’.

LABEL

is the label description library number that defines the format of the note that will be checked and compared with ’COL VAL’. When using LABEL, TABLE must be set and COL must be 0.

’COL VAL’

is the value that when equal to TABLE,COL or TABLE,LABEL will trigger the detail to be placed on the isometric.

’DET NAME’

is the name of the detail cell from the cell library (defined by the tenth entry under the files section of the options file) to place on the isometric.

Information Note Entries Two types of information notes are available: General Notes are indictaed by a _N at the end of the cell. Specific Notes are indictaed by a _S at the end of the cell.

The Options File 7 - 49

All cell names that end with _N or _S are treated as Information Notes and placed accordingly. ATEXT numbers -541 and -542 also effect these criteria. -541 _N is used as the delimiter/identifier in the general note name. -542 _S is used at the delimiter/identifier in the specific note name. Example 1: Example of the DETAIL_SKETCH_FACILITY Table

DETAIL_SKETCH_FACILITY 5 34, 0, 900, ’6Q1C01 GAT’, ’det_4’ 34, 3, 0, ’6Q3C74’, ’det_1’ 34, 20, 0, ’90.0000’, ’det_2’ 34, 0, 924, ’H’, ’HOLD_N’ 12, 12, 0, ’SYS1’, ’I5_S’

7.8 PIPELINE_HEADER __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The pipeline header table is used to generate records in the intermediate data file that cause attribute change graphics to be generated in the isometric drawing. Attribute change graphics can be used at changes in piping materials class, insulation type, and so on, along a pipeline. This table allows you to control the database attributes that are used to generate attribute breaks on the drawing.

Example attribute change graphics This table is also used to generate a note when some database attribute of a component overrides that of the pipeline. For example, a new pipeline might contain an existing valve. This table can be used to generate a note on the drawing that points to the valve and identifies it as existing. The format of a row (or a single entry) in this table is:

RECNO, ST, SC, SN, DFLT, PREFIX, CT, CC, CN, PT, PC, PN, IT, IC, IN

Where: RECNO

is the ISOGEN record number used for an attribute whose value can change along the length of a pipeline. Record numbers from the following table must be used for this item:

The Options File 7 - 51

Table 7 - 1. ISOGEN record numbers for pipeline attributes ISOGEN No _Rec ______

Attribute _________

ATEXT No _____

-6 -7 -11 -14 -15 -16 -17 -41 -42 -43 -44 -45

Line name Spool number prefix Piping materials class (spec) Date Record Insulation type Heat tracing type Paint code User-defined 1 User-defined 2 User-defined 3 User-defined 4 User-defined 5

-288 n/a -289 -250 -290 -291 -292 -293 -294 -295 -296 -297

An entry in the PIPELINE_HEADER table with an ISOGEN record number of -7 is used to define a spool number prefix. If defined, the prefix is used by ISOGEN to form spool number labels in the drawing. When defining spool number prefixes, use a single ? symbol to generate spool numbers only. Use two ? symbols for the spool number prefix to generate spool numbers and sheet numbers. As shown in the previous figure, the actual attribute values at an attribute change are preceded by some clarifying text. That text is "MATL," which identifies that the attributes shown are piping materials classes. For information on modifying this text, refer to ATEXT_SPECIFICATIONS, page 7 - 56 . The Atext numbers you will need in the ATEXT_SPECIFICATIONS table to change the clarifying text are shown above in Table 7-1. In the case of the user-defined attribute changes the default Atexts are blank. In order to generate attribute change graphics in the drawing you MUST define nonblank Atexts that correspond to the ISOGEN record numbers you use. For example, if you want to use ISOGEN record number -41 for a user-defined attribute change then you must define ATEXT number -293 with a nonblank value if you want to see the attribute change on the drawing. The Atext numbers shown in Table 7-1 modify only the clarifying text shown with the attributes in the drawing. They do not modify the title block entries for these attributes. Different Atext numbers are used to modify this text. Refer to Appendix B for details.

7 - 52

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

ST, SC

is a table, column specification for the segment attribute whose value might change along the pipeline. This attribute specification can be any segment level attribute in the material database. The segment level table is table 12. The specification for piping materials class, for example, would be table 12, column 12.

SN

is an optional label description library number that you can use to specify the segment attribute(s) that might change. By using the label description library number rather than than ST, SC (above) you can define composite attributes that are combinations of 2 or more database attributes. The label description library holds a definition of each label description library number. The number and its description in the label library can be used to form a text string (a label) that is formed from database columns. You define which columns are used in the label as well as the label format when making a definition in the label library. Iso extraction treats a string based on a label library number as a pseudo attribute. A pseudo attribute can be used to generate attribute breaks just the same as regular database attribute can.

DFLT

is an optional string used to define a default value for an attribute or label. When the attribute defined by ST,SC or SN is undefined (blank) then DFLT will be used. This shows attribute breaks for attributes that you normally do not want to provide values for. If you do not provide a value for this field the string "UNDEFINED" is used for undefined attributes.

PREFIX

is an optional prefix used in forming a note from a database attribute when a component attribute overrides a segment attribute. The override note is formed by appending the database attribute to the prefix defined here. The note formed in this manner points to the appropriate component in the drawing. When the ISOGEN record number for the spool prefix is -7, PREFIX is used as a separator between the spool prefix and the spool number.

CT, CC

is the table, column specification for the component level attribute that can override the pipeline level attribute defined by ST, SC. These items are optional. Some pipeline level attributes cannot be overridden at the component level (pipeline name and piping materials class are examples). When there is no override attribute these items should be set to 0. Attribute specifications for CT, CC apply to the component table (34) in the design database.

The Options File 7 - 53

CN

is the component level counterpart to SN. If the label generated by CN differs from that generated by SN then an override note will be generated. In order to avoid generating override notes on every component you must either define CN in exactly the same way as SN except for the table and attribute numbers or not use the component override feature.

PT, PC

is the same as CT, CC except that this attribute specification applies to pipe rather than components. Attribute specifications can only refer to table 50 in the design database.

PN IT, IC

is the same as CN except that it applies to pipe. is the same as CT, CC except that this attribute specification applies to instruments rather than components. Attribute specifications are from the instrument table (67).

IN

is the same as CN except that it applies to instruments.

Example 1: Breaking Supply Responsibility Along a Pipeline Since there is no predefined ISOGEN record number for supply responsibility, you must use one of the user-defined records. Record -41 is used in this example. Referring to the database table format, the following database attributes apply:

Segment Component Pipe Instrument

12, 39 - does not apply - does not apply - does not apply -

The table entry would appear as follows:

-41, 12, 39, 0, ’’, ’SUPPLIED BY’, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0

Example 2: Changing Construction Responsibility Along a Pipeline As in the previous example, there is no predefined ISOGEN record number for construction responsibility. So, you must use one of the user-defined record numbers. Record -42 is used in this example. The applicable database attributes are:

Segment Component Pipe Instrument

12, 38 - does not apply - does not apply 67, 29

The appropriate table entry would be:

7 - 54

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

-42, 12, 38, 0, ’’, ’CONSTR BY’, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 67, 29, 0

Example 3: Breaking Composite Attributes by Combining Insulation Purpose and Thickness For this example, we can use ISOGEN record number -15. Since the change that will be shown is made up of multiple attribute changes, we must use the label description library to form a pseudo attribute. Using the label library utility we have defined the following library numbers: 956 - segment insulation purpose and thickness 957 - instrument insulation purpose and thickness The table entry for this case would be:

-15, 0, 0, 956, ’’, ’’, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 957

The first entry in the PIPELINE_HEADER table MUST be for line name (using the -6 record). Otherwise, the ISOGEN interface will stop with an error. The attribute that is used for this entry is displayed in the pipeline ID box in the lower right hand corner of the drawing. You can use either the line name attribute (table 12, attribute 2) or the line ID (specified by using table 12, attribute -2) for ST, SC. Refer to LINE_ID_DEFINITION, page 7 - 59 for information on how a line ID differs from a line name.

The table entries should be in order of increasing absolute value of ISOGEN record number.

Attribute changes in the drawing can be inhibited by either removing the entry for the attribute from this table or by setting the Atext for the clarifying text to blank in the ATEXT_SPECIFICATIONS table.

When attributes are specified, the label library number should be 0. When the label library number is specified then the attribute specifications should be 0.

The line ID (COL = -2) can be used for the spool prefix.

ISOGEN word 39 must be set to 0 in order to display spool number labels formed using the spool prefix.

The Options File 7 - 55

If ST is less than 0, the attribute is checked for component overrides but no segment level breaks will be shown in the drawing. When ST is made negative, set RECNO to an undefined record number (such as -99).

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

7.9 ATEXT_SPECIFICATIONS __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This table is used to modify the values of text strings that ISOGEN puts on drawings. A table entry can also "turn off" a text string so that it does not appear. The format of a table entry is:

ATEXT number, ’new text’

Where: ATEXT number

is one of the ATEXT numbers defined in Appendix B of the ISOGEN Facilities Guide (which is Appendix B of this document).

’new text’

is the new text string to be applied to the Atext number. The ’new text’ will be used instead of the text defined in Appendix B of the facilities guide.

A particular text string can be turned off by setting its Atext value to blank. Example 1: Modifying Text Modify the clarifying text that precedes a piping materials class that is generated at a spec change by changing "SPEC" to "MATL". The table entry would be:

-289, ’MATL’

Example 2: Modifying Text for an Eccentric Reducer Turn on the "FLAT SIDE DOWN" message that points to eccentric reducers (this message is off by default). Refer to Appendix B for further explanation. The table entry would be:

-243, ’FLAT SIDE DOWN’

The table entries must be in order of increasing absolute value of Atext number. That is, -206 should precede -207 and so on. If one specification is out of order then all of the following entries will be ignored.

The Options File 7 - 57

In order to turn off all ISOGEN generated title block data the following Atext specifications can be used: -250, ’ ’ -253, ’ ’ -270, ’ ’ -271, ’ ’ -272, ’ ’ -317, ’ ’ -318, ’ ’ -400, ’ ’ -401, ’ ’ -402, ’ ’ -403, ’ ’ -404, ’ ’ -405, ’ ’ -406, ’ ’ -407, ’ ’ -410, ’ ’ -411, ’ ’

7.10 INGR_ATEXT_SPECIFICATIONS __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This table is used to modify the values of text strings that PD_ISO puts on drawings. The format of a table entry is:

ATEXT number, ’old text’, ’new text’

Where: ATEXT number is 1-15 1: ’NOT FOUND’ 2: ’BOLT LENGTH’ ’old text’

is the text string to be substituted.

’new text’

is the new text string to be applied to the Atext number. The ’old text’ value is used if the ’new text’ value is left blank or if the INGR_ATEXT_SPECIFICATIONS records are omitted from the Options file.

INGR_ATEXT_SPECIFICATIONS include: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16,

’NOT FOUND’, ’BOLT LENGTH’, ’NUTS PER BOLT’, ’CHAIN_’, ’FSTAND_’, ’XSTEM_’, ’HOR’, ’VOR’, ’DEG’, ’E’, ’N’, ’U’, ’W’, ’S’, ’D’, ’****’

The Options File 7 - 59

7.11 LINE_ID_DEFINITION __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This table is used to define the format of the line ID. The line ID is a composite attribute that should be formed from a subset of those attributes which are used to form the line name attribute. The line ID is intended to be a simpler way of referring to a pipeline. The format of a table entry is:

ST, SC, ’SUFFX’

Where: ST, SC

is the table, column specification for one of the attributes making up the line ID. Any attribute from the segment level (table 12) can be used.

’SUFFX’

is an optional, single character, suffix used to terminate the attribute in the line ID. A null entry (two successive single quotes) is valid.

The line ID itself is formed by linking all the attributes together with their suffixes if defined. The result is the line ID label. In order to use the Display Iso feature from an interactive piping session, this table and column must be set to 12, 3 Example 1: Defining a Line ID Define a line ID composed of fluid code, sequence number and unit code. The column numbers involved are: Fluid code Sequence no Unit no

12, 9 12, 10 12, 4

The table is defined as: 12, 9, ’-’ 12, 10, ’’ 12, 4, ’’ Using the previous line ID, what is the line ID for a line named 16IN-P12002-1C003? Assuming that a single digit unit number follows sequence number in this line number, the line ID would be P-12002. The suffix character defined in the table is used only in generating the text string for display purposes. When inputting line names for extraction every attribute forming the line ID MUST be separated by dashes. For instance, to input the line ID in Example 8 you must key in P-1200-2.

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

7.12 TYPE_1_LABELS __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This table is used to generate notes on drawings that point to specific components. This table causes a note to be generated when some database attribute which you define in the table has a value. When the attribute is undefined (that is, does NOT have a value) then no note is generated. When a line is extracted, each component is processed one at a time. This table allows you to generate a note, based on the value of a component’s attribute, at the time it is being processed. You can define up to 50 table entry lines for Type 1 Labels.

The format of a table entry is:

COMP TYPE, TABLE, COL, LDL NO, ENC TYPE (optional)

Where: COMP TYPE

is the component type to which the note should apply. Allowable values for component type are: 1 - Commodity item 2 - Specialty item 3 - Pipe 4 - Instrument 5 - Pipe support

TABLE, COL

is the table, column specification for the attribute that should be checked. If this attribute is defined, the note will be generated. An attribute is considered undefined based on its data type as follows: Integer - set to 0 Real - equal to -32768 ASCII - blank or null Coded - 0 or 1 Any attribute that is not undefined is defined and will cause a note to be generated. You can also specify that a Real attribute be considered undefined if it contains the value 0.0. To do this, make the value of TABLE negative in the table (such as use -34 instead of 34 to designate table 34).

The Options File 7 - 61

LDL NO

is the label description library label number that defines the format of the note that is to appear on the drawing. You must define this note in the label description library as defined in the PDS Reference Data Manager document. If the label references attributes from the database, the attributes must be from the table defined by TABLE or its associated table.

ENC TYPE

is the enclosure type. There are five text-type records that trigger the different enclosures shown below. If an enclosure is not required, use 0 as the enclosure type. Type 1 Enclosure This enclosure type can handle an unlimited number of characters on a single line. Type 2 Enclosure This enclosure type can handle an unlimited number of characters on a single line. Type 3 Enclosure This enclosure type can handle an unlimited number of characters on a single line. Type 4 Enclosure This enclosure type can handle a maximum of three characters on a single line. Type 5 Enclosure This enclosure type can handle a maximum of three characters on a single line.

Example 1: Defining Type 1 Labels Define a table entry that would generate a note (without an enclosure) when the REMARKS field attribute for the component is defined. Using the label library utility, we have defined label 910 as shown below:

7 - 62

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

The attribute referred to is table 34, column 46. The table entry would be: 1, 34, 46, 910 Where: 910 is the label number which defines the exact format of the note to be generated. The note would point to the item (or items) in the drawing that corresponds to the component(s) in the model whose remarks attribute has been defined. The database table defined by TABLE must correspond to the component type identified by COMP TYP. Thus, the following restrictions exist: COMP TYP ___________

Allowable values of TABLE __________________________

1 2 3 4 5

12, 34 12, 34 12, 50 12, 67 12, 80

When LDL NO is set to 0 in the table, no note is generated. The note that is defined by LDL NO need not use the attribute that is defined in the table as TABLE, COL. TABLE, COL is only the trigger in the note generation process. A dollar sign ("$") embedded in a label is treated as a line feed by ISOGEN.

The Options File 7 - 63

7.13 TYPE_2_LABELS __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This table is used to generate notes that point to specific components. Use this table to generate a note whenever a specific attribute (user-defined in the table) is defined with a specific value (also defined by you in the table). Notice the difference between this table and the TYPE_1_LABELS table. Note that generation from the TYPE_1_LABELS table is triggered by an attribute having ANY value. This table is more selective in that you specify the value of the attribute that is to trigger note generation. You can define up to 99 table entry lines for Type 2 Labels.

The format of a table entry is:

TABLE, COL, ’COL VAL’, LENGTH, LDL NO, ENC TYPE (optional)

Where: TABLE, COL

is the table, column specification of the attribute that will be checked and compared with ’COL VAL’.

’COL VAL’

is the value of TABLE, COL that will trigger note generation. If ’COL VAL’ is the same as the value of TABLE, COL then a note will be generated that points to the item.

LENGTH

is an optional specification of the number of characters from the database attribute that should be compared with ’COL VAL’. If set to 0, all characters of the attribute will be compared with ’COL VAL’.

LDL NO

is the label description library number that defines the format of the note that will be generated when the attribute identified by TABLE, COL has the value ’COL VAL’ or the first 1 through LENGTH characters of the attribute are the same as ’COL VAL’. If the label references attributes from the database, the attributes must be from the table defined by TABLE or its associated table.

ENC TYPE

is the enclosure type. There are five text-type records that trigger the different enclosures shown below. If an enclosure is not required, use 0 as the enclosure type.

7 - 64

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

Type 1 Enclosure This enclosure type can handle an unlimited number of characters on a single line. Type 2 Enclosure This enclosure type can handle an unlimited number of characters on a single line. Type 3 Enclosure This enclosure type can handle an unlimited number of characters on a single line. Type 4 Enclosure This enclosure type can handle a maximum of three characters on a single line. Type 5 Enclosure This enclosure type can handle a maximum of three characters on a single line. Example 1: Defining Type 2 Labels Define a table entry that would generate a note (with a type 3 enclosure) that points to all blind flanges. One way to accomplish this would be to check the value of the PDS commodity_name attribute for the string "6Q2C08", the PDS commodity name for a Blind Flange. The appropriate attribute is table 34, column 3. The table entry would be: 3, 3, ’6Q2C08’, 0, 911, 3 Where 911 is the label description library label number which defines the format of the note. Label 911 is defined as follows:

The Options File 7 - 65

Refer to notes 2, 3, 4, and 5 under the description of the TYPE_1_LABELS table. These notes also apply to the TYPE_2_LABELS table. To test on code list number values rather than code list text, set LENGTH to 0 and set COLVAL to the code list number. For example, to generate a note when the fabrication category 50(table), 14(col) is 25 use: 50, 14, ’25’, 0, 986.

7 - 66

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

7.14 TYPE_3_LABELS __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This table is used to generate a note when the value of a code-listed attribute matches one of the values specified in the table entry. This table is similar to TYPE_2_LABELS except that, rather than being triggered by a single value, a note can be triggered by one of several values. You can define up to 50 table entry lines for Type 3 labels.

The format of a table entry is as follows:

TYPE, TABLE, COL, LDL NO, NVALS, VAL1, VAL2, ... VALN, ENC TYPE (optional)

Where: TYPE

is the component type that the note should apply to. Use the following values for TYPE: 1- Commodity item 2- Specialty item 3- Pipe 4- Instrument 5- Pipe Support

TABLE,COL

defines the attribute that triggers note generation.

TABLE

must correspond to TYPE as follows: TYPE ______

ALLOWABLE TABLES _ _____________________

1 2 3 4 5

12, 34 12, 34 12, 50 12, 67 12, 80

LDL NO

Defines the format of the note to be generated if triggered. If the label references attributes from the database, the attributes must be from the table defined by TABLE or its associated table. If LDL NO is set to 0, the value of TABLE,COL is generated as the note.

NVALS

Defines the number of code list numbers in the list to follow.

VAL1...VALN

Code list numbers that should trigger note generation.

The Options File 7 - 67

Example 1: Defining Type 3 Labels Show the table entry needed to generate a note when the component fabrication category is set to code list values 5, 7, or 17. The table entry would be:

1, 34, 10, 994, 3, 5, 7, 17

Where: Label 994 would define the format of the note that would be generated.

When LDL NO is set to 0 so that the code listed text is generated as the drawing note, the short form of the code list text (that to the left of the "=" in the code list source) can be generated by making COL negative. Therefore, in the previous example, the following would be used to generate the short form of the code list text as the note. 1, 34, -10, 0, 3, 5, 7, 17

7 - 68

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

7.15 START_POINT_NOTES __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This table is used to generate notes at the beginning of a pipeline. The format of a table entry is as follows:

TYPE, TABLE, LDL NO, ENC TYPE (optional)

Where: TYPE TABLE

Currently, TYPE must be set to 0. TABLE defines the tables that will be referenced by LDL NO as follows:

TABLE _______

Valid tables in label LDL NO _ __________________________

12 34 50 67

SEGMENTS COMPONENTS PIPE INSTRUMENT

LDL NO

Label library number which defines the format of a note to be generated on the first component of the pipeline.

ENC TYPE

is the enclosure type. There are five text-type records that trigger the different enclosures shown below. If an enclosure is not required, use 0 as the enclosure type.

The Options File 7 - 69

Type 1 Enclosure This enclosure type can handle an unlimited number of characters on a single line. Type 2 Enclosure This enclosure type can handle an unlimited number of characters on a single line. Type 3 Enclosure This enclosure type can handle an unlimited number of characters on a single line. Type 4 Enclosure This enclosure type can handle a maximum of three characters on a single line. Type 5 Enclosure This enclosure type can handle a maximum of three characters on a single line. Example 1: Defining Start Point Notes Define a table entry that would generate the line name attribute at the start of a pipeline. The table entry would be:

0, 12, 900, 0

Where: Label 900 returns the line name (T12C2) followed by a dash and the text, "Starts Here".

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

7.16 END_POINT_COMPONENT_LABELS __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This table is used to define the format of notes that are generated at line endpoints when the line endpoint connects on to another pipeline. The note defined by this table is NOT generated at line endpoints that are not connected to other pipelines. The note itself is formed from the attributes of the connecting component. Each entry in the table is used to form one line of the note. Multiline notes are shown as a block of text on the drawing. The format of a table entry is:

’PREFIX’, CT, CC, CN, PT, PC, PN, IT, IC, IN

The attribute that is used for this entry is displayed in the pipeline ID box in the lower right hand corner of the drawing. You can use either the line name attribute (table 12, column 2) or the line ID (specified by using table 12, attribute -2) for ST, SC. Refer to LINE_ID_DEFINITION, page 7 - 59 for information on how a line ID differs from a line name. Where: ’PREFIX’

is a short prefix for the attribute that will be displayed at the line endpoint.

CT, CC

is the table, column specification of the attribute that will be displayed when the connecting component is a commodity item or a specialty item.

CN

is a label description library number that defines the format of the note line when the connecting component is a commodity item or a specialty item. When CN is used then CT should be set to a value that defines the tables referred to in the note description, held in the label library. That is, if the note definition uses table 12 then CT should be set to 12. If the note definition uses table 34, then CT should be set to 34. In generating a line in the line endpoint note either column CT, CC is appended to PREFIX or the line is generated using the label description library note identified by CN. When CT, CC is defined then CN should be 0. When CN is not 0 then CC should be set to zero.

PT, PC

is the table, column specification of the attribute that will be displayed when the connecting item is a pipe. These entries are analogous to CT, CC for components.

The Options File 7 - 71

PN

is the label description library number that defines the format of the note line when the connecting component is a pipe. PN is analogous to CN for components. When using PN you must set PT to a value that reflects the tables used in the note definition. For example, if the note uses table 12 then PT must be set to 12. If it uses table 50 then PT must be set to 50.

IT, IC

is the table, column specification of the attribute that will be displayed when the connecting item is an instrument. These entries are analogous to CT, CC for components.

IN

is the label description library number that defines the format of the note line when the connecting component is an instrument. IN is analogous to CN for components. When using IN you must set IT to a value that reflects the table used in the note definition. For example, if the note uses table 12 then IE must be set to 12. If it uses table 67 then IE must be set to 67.

Example 1: Defining Continuation Notes Define the table entries that would generate a continuation note that consists of one line for the connected line’s line name. For the note, the applicable database attribute is table 12, column 2. The table entry would be:

’LINE:’, 12, 2, 0, 12, 2, 0, 12, 2, 0

Example 2: Defining Continuation Notes Redo example 1 using label description library numbers rather than column numbers. The table entry for the line name would be:

’’, 12, 0, 951, 12, 0, 951, 12, 0, 951

The label description library number option is useful when you want to display more than one attribute on a single line in the note. CT, PT, and IE are restricted as follows: CT- 12 or 34 PT- 12 or 50 IT- 12 or 67

7.17 NOZZLE_NOTE __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This table is very similar to the END_POINT_COMPONENT_LABELS table except that it is used to form a note when the line endpoint is connected to an equipment nozzle. The primary difference is that with the NOZZLE_NOTE table some lines in the connection note can be generated based on the generic termination type of the nozzle. The format of a table entry is:

GEN TYP, TABLE, LDL NO

Where: GEN TYP

is a number that indicates those generic termination types for which this note line should be generated. The allowable values of GEN TYP are: -1- to indicate that the note line should be generated for ALL generic termination types. 1- to indicate that the note line should only be generated when the generic termination type of the nozzle is FLANGED. 2- to indicate that the note line should only be generated when the generic termination type of the nozzle is FEMALE. 3- to indicate that the note line should only be generated when the generic termination type of the nozzle is MALE.

TABLE

is the database table from which attributes are taken in defining the label description library entry that is identified by LDL NO. If the attributes defined in the note are from the equipment table then TABLE should be 21. If the attributes used in defining the note are from the nozzle table then TABLE should be 22.

LDL NO

is the label description library number that defines the format of the note.

Example 1: Defining a Nozzle Connection Note Define a table that generates a nozzle connection consisting of the following lines: Line 1 Line 2 Line 3

Equipment item name Nozzle tag number A line that depends on end prep as follows: A) Flanged - size-rating-facing B) Socket weld - size-rating-facing C) Welded - size-schedule-end prep

The Options File 7 - 73

The appropriate database attributes are:

Equipment name - table 21, column 2 Nozzle tag table 22, column 2 size table 22, column 4 rating table 22, column 5 end prep table 22, column 6 schedule table 22, column 17

The table would be:

-1, -1, 1, 2, 3,

21, 22, 22, 22, 22,

952 953 954 954 950

A note formed by this table for a flanged nozzle might be: ITEM: 2103-C NOZ: N11 6"-CL150-RFFE

If TABLE < 0 (such as -21 or -22) then the line will be appended to the previous line in the table without a linefeed. This allows you to combine attributes from tables 21 and 22 onto a single line in the note block. The Intergraph Options_Block word 23 controls whether the software uses the ISOGEN default nozzle note or the note defined by this keyword.

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

7.18 SECONDARY_ORIENTATION_NOTE __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This table is used to define valve operators that require a secondary orientation in order to install them. For each operator it also defines the prefix for the secondary orientation label. A table entry is as follows:

’OPER_NAME’, ’NOTE_PRFX’

Where: OPTR_NAME

is the symbol name of the valve operator which requires a second orientation.

NOTE_PRFX

is the prefix that should be used for second orientation.

Example 1: Defining Secondary Orientation Notes Define the table entry that would result in a secondary orientation note for the valve operator OP_9. The table entry would be: ’OP_9’, ’ORIENT WRENCH’ The above table entry creates the following note in a drawing:

The Intergraph Options_Block word 48 controls whether the software uses the ISOGEN default secondary orientation note or the note defined by this keyword.

The Options File 7 - 75

7.19 DOTTED_SYMBOLOGY_CODE_LIST_VALUES __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This table is used to allow the values of certain database attributes to determine whether or not the piping in the isometric should be shown in dotted symbology or not. By using this table you can, for example, make all "existing" piping show up in the iso in dotted symbology rather than with solid lines. Only code-listed attributes can be used to determine whether or not a section of piping or a component is to be dotted. Code-listed attributes are displayed as text strings when the Piping Review Attributes command is used. Attributes are displayed as having an integer data type in the database table format. The format of an entry in this table is:

ST, SC, CT, CC, PT, PC, IT, IC, VTF, VAL1, VAL2, ... VALn

Where: ST, SC

defines a segment level column (from table 12) whose value might cause the piping to be dotted.

CT, CC

defines a component level column (from table 34) whose value might cause a commodity item or specialty item to be dotted.

PT, PC

defines a pipe column (from table 50) whose value might cause a piece of pipe to be dotted.

IT, IC

defines an instrument column (from table 67) whose value might cause an instrument to be dotted.

VTF

is the number of values to follow in the list VAL1 through VALn.

VAL1-VALn

are the values of the code-listed column which will force the symbology to be dotted.

Example 1: Defining Dotted Symbology Determine the table entry that will result in dotted symbology on the isometric when the construction status is "existing". The relevant database attributes are:

segment: component: pipe: instrument:

table table table table

12, 34, 50, 67,

column column column column

20 32 27 29

7 - 76

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

Looking at the code-list number 130 (the construction status code-list) we can find that the code-list number for "existing" is 3. Thus, the table entry would be:

12, 20, 34, 32, 50, 27, 67, 29, 1, 3

Whenever the value of the segment level attribute matches one of those in the list VAL1 through VALn, all of the components attached to the segment will be drawn with dotted symbology in the isometric. When the value of a component level attribute (defined by CT,CC, PT,PC, or IT,IC) matches a value in the list, only that item will be drawn with dotted symbology. Example 2: Defining Dotted Symbology Determine the table entry that will result in the dotted symbology on the isometric when the construction status is EXISTING, REVAMPED, RELOCATED, TEMPORARY, DISMANTLE or FUTURE.

7.20 NOMTO_CODE_LIST_VALUES __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This table is very much the same as the DOTTED_SYMBOLOGY_CODE_LIST table except that it is used to imply a status of no-mto based on the value of a code-listed attribute. When a component has a status of no-mto then it does not appear in the ISOGEN bill-of-material. This table can be used in addition to the no-mto attribute that explicitly defines a component to be no-mto. Again, only code-listed attributes can be used in this table. Refer to DOTTED_SYMBOLOGY_CODE_LIST_VALUES, page 7 - 75 for information on identifying a code-listed column. The format of an entry in this table is:

ST, SC, CT, CC, PT, PC, IT, IC, VTF, VAL1, VAL2, ... VALn

Where: ST, SC

defines a segment level column (from table 12) whose value might cause the piping to be no-mto.

CT, CC

defines a component level column (from table 34) whose value might cause a commodity item or specialty item to be no-mto.

PT, PC

defines a pipe column (from table 50) whose value might cause a piece of pipe to be no-mto.

IT, IC

defines an instrument column (from table 67) whose value might cause an instrument to be no-mto.

VTF

is the number of values to follow in the list VAL1 through VALn.

VAL1-VALn

are the values of the code-listed column which will imply that the item to be no-mto.

Example 1: Defining Components as No MTO Determine the table entry that would result in all components with the construction status of existing to be no-mto. This example is very similar to the example covered in the section DOTTED_SYMBOLOGY_CODE_LIST_VALUES and requires an identical table entry:

12, 20, 34, 32, 50, 27, 67, 29, 1, 3

7.21 SHOP_FABCAT_CODE_LIST_VALUES __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ If the codelist number is not listed in the option file sections for SHOP_FABCAT_CODE_LIST_VALUES or OFFSHORE_FABCAT_CODE_LIST_VALUES, the item defaults to field. This table is used to identify those values of the fabrication category attribute that are to be interpreted as meaning shop. This is necessary because ISOGEN only allows the two options of either shop or field and does not distinguish (as PDS does) between supplier and fabricator of a component. If the codelist number is not listed in the option file sections for "SHOP_FABCAT_CODE_LIST_VALUES" or "OFFSHORE_FABCAT_CODE_LIST_VALUES" the item will default to field. ISOGEN lists shop materials separately from field materials. In erection-only isometrics ISOGEN does not list shop materials. Also, some end-prep graphics are changed to distinguish between connections made in the shop and those made in the field. Field connections are implied when the fabrication category changes from shop to field or viceversa. The format of the table entry is:

VTF, VAL1, VAL2, ... VALn

Where: VTF

is a number indicating the number of values to follow.

VAL1-VALn

are the values of the fabrication category attribute that are to be interpreted as meaning shop by ISOGEN.

Example 1: Segregating Fabrication Categories Define the table entry that would result in the fabrication categories Contractor supplied, shop fabricated (codelist value 5) and Shop supplied, shop fabricated (codelist value 15) being interpreted as meaning shop by ISOGEN.

SHOP_FABCAT_CODE_LIST_VALUES 1 2 5, 15

If needed, more than one row can be made in the table if the number of codelisted values per row exceeds 25.

7.22 OFFSHORE_FABCAT_CODE_LIST_VALUES __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ If the codelist number is not listed in the option file sections for SHOP_FABCAT_CODE_LIST_VALUES or OFFSHORE_FABCAT_CODE_LIST_VALUES, the item defaults to field. The OFFSHORE section is optional and is not required in the options file. Also, refer to Offshore Material Category, page 8 - 9 and Offshore Fabrication Category, page 16 - 4 for related material. The format of the table entry is:

VTF, VAL1, VAL2, ... VALn

Where: VTF

is a number indicating the number of values to follow.

VAL1-Valn

are the values of the fabrication category attribute that are to be interpreted as meaning offshore by ISOGEN.

Example 1: Segregating fabrication categories Define the table entry that would result in the fabrication categories contractor supplied, offshore fabricated (code list value 39) and shop supplied, offshore fabricated (code list value 49) being interpreted as offshore by ISOGEN. The table entry is:

OFFSHORE_FABCAT_CODE_LIST_VALUES 1 2, 39, 49

If needed, more than one row can be made in the table if the number of codelisted values per row exceeds 25.

7.23 MOVABLE_TEXT __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This table allows you to relocate or turn off certain text strings and the north arrow generated by ISOGEN. If an item is not turned off, it can either be moved to its proper position in the drawing title block or moved into a drawing margin so this it is not a part of the plotted drawing. The maximum number of movable text entries is twenty five.

This table is also used to set-up/ define a table or matrix of spool numbers that you locate in your drawing. The format of a table entry is:

RECNO, X, Y, TXTHGT, XOFF, YOFF, DIR

Where: RECNO

is the record number of the item to be moved or turned off. When setting up a spool number table you set RECNO to -7. Other valid entries include any of the header record numbers defined for the PIPELINE_HEADER table (refer to PIPELINE_HEADER, page 7 - 50 ) or one of the following: Recno ______

Item _____

-25 -700 -701 -702 -703

System ID for multi-line isometrics drawing north arrow (reserved) sheet number on a drawing number of sheets on a drawing

X

is the x offset in 1/100ths mm from the bottom left corner of the sheet.

Y

is the y offset in 1/100ths mm from the bottom left corner of the sheet. Use x and y equal to 0 to turn off a text string.

TXTHGT

is the text height of the string being moved in 1/100’s mm (that is, text in mm X 100). 0 is the default setting as defined in the ISOGEN option switches.

7 - 82

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

XOFF

is the horizontal distance in 1/100ths mm between spool numbers in a spool number table. XOFF also defines the direction of travel for locating the next table entry in the row. If XOFF is negative the next table entry is to the left, otherwise it is to the right. Should be set to zero if RECNO is not -7.

YOFF

is the vertical distance in 1/100ths mm between spool numbers in a spool number table. YOFF also defines the direction of travel for locating the next table entry in the column. If YOFF is negative then the next entry is located below the current one, otherwise it is located above it. Should be set to zero if RECNO is not -7.

DIR

is a compound number that defines the size and filling order of a spool number table as follows:

ROWS defines the maximum number of rows in the spool number table. COLS defines the maximum number of columns in the table. TABLE DIRECTION defines the order in which the table is filled with values. If TABLE DIRECTION is set to 0 then rows of the table are filled in succession. If TABLE DIRECTION is set to 1 then columns are filled in succession. This parameter should be set to 0 if RECNO is not -7. Example 1: Defining Movable Text Define table entries that would turn off the system ID for multi-pipeline isometrics and any title block text generated by -41 through -45 records in the PIPELINE_HEADER table. The following table would accomplish this: -41, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 -42, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 -43, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 -44, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 -45, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 Example 2: Defining Movable Text The following spool table would result from the values XOFF=-700, YOFF=800, and DIR=1003004 (such as Table entry -7, 100, 100, 0, -700, 800, 1003004).

The Options File 7 - 83

Certain ISOGEN text strings like the line name (-6 record) cannot be turned off. Do not set X and Y to 0. You can move these items outside the plotted area of the drawing to eliminate them.

Text is justified by the lower, left corner of the string.

If the number of spools on an iso sheet exceeds the number of table entries defined for a spool number table then the table is filled and an error message is written to the error file.

To position the default spool numbers (that is, where the spool number is surrounded by square brackets) in a spool number table you should not have a -7 entry in the PIPELINE_HEADER table. If you want to position only the number (without the square brackets) then insert an entry into the PIPELINE_HEADER table for the -7 record but set ST, SC, and SN to 0. Also set PREFIX to a blank. If you have defined a spool prefix in the PIPELINE_HEADER table then the entire spool number, including the prefix, will be positioned in the table.

7.24 NEW_SYMBOL_KEYS __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Certain ISOGEN interface logic depends on the ISOGEN symbol name. When ISOGEN symbols are redefined and renamed, this logic can not be properly executed. This table allows you to tell the interface software which user-defined symbol your new symbol is based upon so that the special logic can be properly executed. The format of a table entry is:

’SYMBOL KEY’, ’OLD SYMBOL KEY’

Where: SYMBOL KEY

is the name of your new ISOGEN symbol.

OLD SYMBOL KEY

is the name of the ISOGEN symbol upon which your symbol is based.

Example 1: >Defining ISOGEN Symbol Keys Define a table entry which indicates that the symbol RVXX has been redefined and named RRVV: ’RRVV’, ’RVXX’ An entry in this table is only required when the old symbol key (or the symbol upon which your symbol is based) is one of the following: CVXX, SVXX, MVXX, HVXX, XVXX, RVXX, IIXX, OPXX, PRXX, DRXX, CTXX or any symbol which you redefine and intend to map to a multi-endprep component in the model.

7.25 GENITM_NOTE_FORMAT __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This table is used to format notes for items that imply materials through the Implied Material Data Table and for valves with chain wheel operators, extension stems or floor stands. This table is enabled by Intergraph option 45.

The table can contain up to four entries that are used to format notes. The first entry is for valves with chain wheel operators. The second entry is for valves with floor stands. The third entry is for valves with extension stems. The fourth entry is for the note pointing to a component that generates implied items through the specification database. One note is formatted for each item implied through the specification database. A table entry is a text string as follows:

Label Definition

Where: The label definition is formed from text together with embedded specifications for attributes pertaining to the implied item. An embedded specification is formed by a number within square brackets (such as [n]). Valid numbers that can be used together with their meanings are: [1] [2] [3] [4]

The item code or commodity code of the implied item. The quantity of implied material. The material description of the implied material. The chain operator number, for chain wheel operators.

Example 1: Defining General Item Notes Show a note format that would display item code and quantity for an implied item: ’INCL. [2] - [1]’ When an implied item is generated through the reference database, the following example note might be generated in the drawing: INCL. 1 - WBAAACFHNB

ST, SC

defines a table, column specification that is to be mapped when the attribute is taken from the reference database entry for the implied item. Valid values for ST are 0 and 202.

CPF

is a connect point flag. When CPF is set to 1, it indicates that the attribute should be retrieved from the generating item’ s connect point (that is, the connect point from the item generating the implied material). NOTE: When this flag is set, CT, PT and IT should be set to 0. CC, PC, and IC should be set to a value selected from the Connect Point Attribute index in the USER_DEFINED_COMPONENT_BOM section.

ITEM

When this value is nonzero it indicates that either the attribute to be mapped is data that was generated along with the implied item, or the attribute to be obtained from the spec. Values for item are dependent on the implied item type as shown below. Item Type _____

When information is generated for an item, the item type is determined and one of the previously listed table, column pairs is selected. The selected table, column pair is then used to retrieve an attribute from the database. All pairs need not be defined. If a component data table entry should apply to only one type of item, set the table, column pairs for other types to zero. If the label number is defined as anything other than 0, that value will be used in place of the table, column value or the value from connect point attributes.

8. User-Defined BOM / Material Control File

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The ISOGEN package allows you to define (within certain limits) the layout and content of the ISOGEN generated Material List and related Material Control File. By making modifications to the Material List Definition (MLD) file and options file you can: Revise the Material List Style. — The current basic style with new optional column for weight - Style 1. — Placing user-defined data in a column-type layout - Style 2. This style is defined and controlled by the new Material List Definition (MLD) file. MTO list header information is included in the material list definition file (MLD). — Placing data in a column-type format (no headings) on a user-defined drawing sheet - Style 3. This style will be defined and controlled by the new Material List Definition (MLD) file. The MTO list header information is displayed in the iso border file. Create a user-defined Material Control File. This file is defined and controlled by the new Material List Definition (MLD) file. The MLD file is the 13th entry in the FILES section of the ISOGEN options file. Create a new Offshore Material category. Define optional material accumulation parameters. Select part number ID box format on the plotted isometric Define the Optional output of the Length format of pipes, miscellaneous components and pipe length. Define a full range of Bolt Units (size X length). Revise the format of the cut list. Define welds to be included on the material list. Re-position the tile block. Reserve an area for a user-specified title block. When using the new user defined formats, it is recommended that several trial runs are done. This way, you can verify that the layout is practical and that the requested data is both valid and available, before committing to project use.

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

Validity checks will be performed on the contents of the MLD file and warning messages output when necessary. Typical checks validate all major headings and all data identifiers. A check is also done to confirm that all mandatory data is included in the file.

User-defined MTO - Related Information The following is a list of related elements within the ISOGEN software that may be manipulated when creating a user-defined BOM or Material Control file.

8.1 Types of Material List __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Three types of material lists are available Style 1, Style 2 and Style 3. ISOGEN option switch 23 controls which Style material list is used. The MLD file contains the definition of the content and format of Style 2 and Style 3 Material Lists. Style 1 - Standard Material List To produce a material list identical to those produced prior to the 5.0 ISOGEN software release, turn off the intermediate sub-headings (PIPE, FITTINGS, FLANGES, etc). This can be done by setting the appropriate Atexts to BLANK. This will continue to provide the capability of producing a continuous-type material list. A 4.3 version of the ISOGEN options file can be used without any modifications to produce an iso with the 5.0 software that looks as it did when it was produced with the 4.3 software. Style 2 - User-defined Variation of the Standard Material List

User-Defined BOM / Material Control File 8 - 3

Style 3 - User-defined Text and User-positioned Text Only text is output. No headings are output. Style 3 works well for boxed or column type bills of material. The Cut List and Center Line Summary facilities are not available for Style 3.

Basic Contents of a Style 1 Material List Standard form Material List (as currently output and using all current sort criteria) New column for component weight (optional) New section for Offshore materials Revised Cut List (optional) New form of the Bolt size x length output An option for repositioning the title block when Material List on the right is used. Basic Contents of a Style 2 Material List User variation of the Style 1 material list User-definable column headings/data content for horizontal layout (done in the MLD file) Extra data attributes available for listing (This can be done by using the 80- 89 record identifiers in the MLD file.) Similar vertical layout to Style 1. (uses the same sort criteria) All options listed for Style 1 Facility for User to change sort group of components. (For example, move Blank Flange from Valve/In-Line Item group to Flange group) Basic Contents for a Style 3 Material List Fully user-defined drawing backing sheet (All column, boxes, headings, etc pre-defined in the seed isometric or border file) Three major categories of Materials to be identifiable (For example, FABRICATION, ERECTION, OFFSHORE) No intermediate Material Type headings to be output User-definable data content and data output positions for all material list information in the MLD file

listing listing listing listing

TOP to BOTTOM BOTTOM to TOP Fab Materials DOWN/ Erec Materials UP Erec Materials DOWN/ Fab Materials UP

If the Offshore category is used, you are restricted to using a continuous list (Top to Bottom/Bottom to Top) and should use the column for category identification (For example, FAB, EREC, OFF ). Automatic ISO overflow facility (used if there are too many parts for the given backing sheet)

8.1.1 Operating Requirements __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The following requirements must be met to successfully use the user-defined BOM / Material Control File functionality. Material List Definition (MLD) File This will be a required entry when using the user-defined bill of material (Style 2 or Style 3). The options file section titled FILES will require a new entry (the 13th entry) defining the location and name of the user-defined MLD file. Bill of Material Columns. You must define data to be output on the MTO for each component type in the MLD file. This done by using new or existing data identifiers. Existing BOM identifiers are Commodity Code (-20 record) or Commodity Description (-21 record). New BOM identifiers consist of user-defined identifiers: — -80 - -89 record types — PT-NO, QTY, N.S., WEIGHT, CATEGORY, GROUP The user-defined identifiers can contain anything from the database for a specific component. Three sections (see below) of the Intergraph options file define reported information and the identifier that is associated with that information (-80 - -89 record types) per item type. The -20 and -21 record types can not be redefined. You will not be required to output either of these record types on the user-defined BOM, but the .idf file will always contain these two records.

User-Defined BOM / Material Control File 8 - 5

Type -80 identifiers, if any, will always follow the -21 record type in the .idf file.

User-defined information can be formatted by manipulating the following three sections in the options file. USER_DEFINED_COMPONENT_BOM - used with components, engineered items, pipe, instruments and supports. USER_DEFINED_IMPLIED_ITEM_BOM - used with bolts, gaskets and welds. USER_DEFINED_GENERATED_ITEM_BOM - used with cap screws and chain wheel operators. To generate an entry in the bill of material for generated items, Intergraph option 45 must be set to 1 or 3.

8-6

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

8.2 Material List Definition (MLD) File __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The options file section titled FILES will require a new entry (the 13th entry) defining the location and name of the user-defined MLD file. The new entry in the FILES section will be verified, mounted and included as a -122 record type in the .idf file. This entry is required when using the user-defined bill of material. The MLD file allows you to define (with certain limits) the style and content of the following: The Heading content and layout of a PRINTED Style 1 (Weight Heading only) or Style 2 Material List. The column headings, data content definitions and positional coordinates of the main body of a plotted and/or printed Style 2 Material List. The main body of a Style 1 (current style) plotted or printed material list can not be changed. For a Style 2 type Material List the BASIC FORMAT is the same as the current style. The number, position, and content of the various vertical data columns is the part of the list that is user definable. The data content and positional coordinates for all items on a plotted Style 3 Material List. When using a Style 3 Material List, the option of obtaining a printed list is not available. The layout/data content of a user-specified Material Control File. Because of the current methods used within the ISOGEN program, the quantities included in the Material Control File must be identical to the quantities generated for the Material List. This is because the same accumulation rules are used for both.

User-Defined BOM / Material Control File 8 - 7

8.3 User-Defined Material Control File (.bom file) __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ When Intergraph option 1 is set to 1, the MLD file allows you to define the layout and content of the printed Material Control File (M/C File). The Material Control File is intended to be used as a vehicle for data transfer between ’Systems’. There will be several differences in layout when compared with the file generated for a Printed Material List (.prt file). Basic Requirements for a Material Control File Allow any width (Not limited to 132 characters). Allow any length of file. No ’Paging’ functionality is required. Include any Title Headings/Column Headings (if user-defined) once at the start of the file. Output of lengths in any quantity (QTY) column should be in the format set in ISOGEN option switch 24. Bolts to be included in the file should follow the same rules as the bolts used for the associated material list. Size and length units are set by ISOGEN option switch 65. Use ATEXT -359 to reformat the size and length information. The ISOGEN software allows you to identify all UNITS used within the M/C file through the use of Unit Identification entries. There is no limit on the number of Unit Identification entries and the format is user-definable. Unit ID entries must be included in the MLD file and immediately follow the MATERIAL-CONTROL-FILE identifier. Any unit id entries will be the first items output in the M/C file. Unit identification entries will not impact the ISOGEN system. Their only purpose is to identify the UNITS used for size and lengths in the M/C interface file. Some typical unit ID entries:

UNITS-BORE data UNITS-LENGTH data UNITS-BOLT-DIA data UNITS-BOLT-LENGTH data

Where: data identifies the units used in the M/C file.

8-8

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

A user-defined Material Control file will be triggered by the identifier MATERIALCONTROL-FILE which is located in the MLD file. The definition of the required file (layout/content) will follow the MATERIAL-CONTROL-FILE identifier. The file can be generated either with or without Titles and/or Column Headings. The definition of Title Headings, Column Headings and Data Items will use the same basic rules as a Style 2 printed material list. The key identifiers to be used are:

PRINTED-M/C-TITLES PRINTED-M/C-COLUMN-HEADINGS PRINTED-M/C-DATA-ITEMS

In the case of Data Items, the -39 IDF RECORD IDENTIFIER can be included in the Material Control file, but not on the Material List. This can only be used when using the Material List Non-Accumulation facility (ISOGEN option 74). Available Data Items for the Material Control File Unique Name _____________

IDF Record Number ___________________

PIPELINE-REFERENCE DRG PIPING-SPEC PT-NO QTY N.S. ITEM-CODE DESCRIPTION WEIGHT CATEGORY GROUP

-6 -11 -20 -21 (uses ATEXT -376 - 378) uses ATEXT -307, -308, -309, -311 - -315, -339, -375 -80 - -89 (user-defined attributes) -39 Segment and Component Occurrence Numbers

UNIQUECOMPONENTIDENTIFIER

If Unique Name and associated IDF Record Number both exist, either may be used. UNIQUE NAMES with no IDF Record Numbers are shown with a - in the IDF RECORD NUMBER column. When this occurs, you must use UNIQUE NAME. IDF Record Numbers with no UNIQUE NAME are shown with a - in the Unique Name column. When this occurs, use IDF Record Number.

User-Defined BOM / Material Control File 8 - 9

8.4 Offshore Material Category __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Any item designated as Offshore will be treated as an ERECTION type item in the drawing, but will be listed on the Material List under a new main heading as defined by ATEXT -371. All materials sorted are within the new heading category. The M/C file will contain a 3 in word 6 of existing component records when the item is designated as Offshore.

8.5 Transferring Components Between Sort Groups __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The MLD file has a TRANSFER feature that will allow you to move components from one sort group to another. The identifier TRANSFER must be followed by any relevant information that would identify the component to be transferred and the new group under which it will be listed. Component identification will be done by record ID numbers. Refer to the Record Identification Numbers listed in Appendix B of this document (35 =Elbow, 100 = pipe). Available sort Group identifiers include: PIPE VALV FITT INST FLAN SUPP GASK MISC BOLT WELD

pipe valves + inline items fittings instruments flanges supports gaskets miscellaneous components bolts welds

If you plan to list any of the above Group Identifiers on a Style 2 or Style 3 Material List, ATEXTs -307, -308, -309, -311, -312, -313, -314, -315, -339, and -375 must be set in the options file. A typical entry in the MLD file might be:

TRANSFER 107 FLAN

Where:

8 - 10

107

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

is the record ID for BLANK FLANGES and FLAN is the NEW sort group under which Blank Flanges should be listed. Any number of blank characters between record ID and Group identifiers are allowed.

8.6 Generating an Optional Format for Length Output __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ By default, length output on the Material List for PIPE, MISCELLANEOUS COMPONENTS and CL LENGTH is set to the nearest 1/10 M or 1/10 FT and is formatted:

Metric 10.4 M English 10.4 ’

ISOGEN option 24 allows for an alternative format to output either in millimeters or feet and inches.

Metric 1040 mm English 10’-5"

(rounded to the nearest mm) (rounded up to the nearest inch)

8.7 Bolt Units (size x length) __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Option switch 65, Bolting Length in the M/C file, allows you to define bolt length/bolt diameters. Any value set in the last position of ISOGEN option switch 65 is output in the second digit (tens position) of word 2 in the 60 type record in the M/C file. Any value set in the second position of ISOGEN option switch 65 is output in the third digit (hundreds position) of word 2 of the 60 type record in the M/C file. Bolt diameters (in word 2) and bolt lengths (in word 7) of 500 (bolt) records in the M/C file will be generated in the units appropriate to the various ISOGEN switch settings. The Material List also allows an alternative output format for bolts. The alternative output will be used whenever ATEXT -359 is set to any value other than blank. The suggested setting is diameter x length.

ISOGEN will always output in a bolt-diameter-by-bolt-length order. Bolt Units will be placed just below the new heading using a program generated text string. The text string is created by using a combination of ATEXTs -330 and -331. Typical Bolt Unit Output: BOLTS _______ Bolt Descr.

DIA x LENGTH (INS x INS) 3/4 x 2.1/2

(ATEXT -359) (Generated)

User-Defined BOM / Material Control File 8 - 11

8.8 Generating a Revised Format of the Cut List __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Modifications made to the current cut list format ATEXT -322 (Cut) is ignored. ATEXT -323 (Length) is moved up to the top line of the headings. Set ATEXT -361 so that the default text, Ft-Ins, will be positioned below LENGTH when imperial units are being used. Place ATEXT -331(mm) below LENGTH when mixed or metric units are being used. Set zero inches to output as 2’0" and not 2’. The revised layout still has two cut pieces on each line.

Typical layout:

PIECE NO.

LENGTH N.S. (FT-INS) (INS)

REMARKS

PIECE NO.

LENGTH (FT-INS)

N.S. (INS)

REMARKS

New cut list format The new cut list format has a revised layout with only one cut piece per line. To request the new cut list format, use ISOGEN option 2. Typical new layout:

PIECE NO.

LENGTH (FT-INS)

N.S. (INS)

END ONE

END TWO

ITEM CODE

— OR —

PIECE NO.

LENGTH (FT-INS)

N.S. (INS)

END ONE

END TWO

ITEM CODE

Gaps between new heading elements are handled by the ISOGEN software based on either the actual Atext heading or the length of the information items that are printed under each heading. This will be either the standard Atext or any user-modified Atext.

8 - 12

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

When using the new cut list format, you must verify that the total width of the cut list is less than the width of the requested material list. This will prevent the cut list from overflowing onto the drawing section of the isometric. Use ATEXTs -362, -363, -364, -365 when using the new cut list format. If PART NO. is required on the cut list instead of ITEM CODE, ATEXT -364 should be blank and ATEXT -365 set to PART$NO. The Cut List Remarks Column Current Atexts for cut list REMARKS (-326, -327, -328) are still used. If any of these Atexts are changed, sufficient space should be left between column headings to accommodate data. In the new cut list format layout, multiple remarks are allowed. Each remark is located on a separate line. For example:

REMARK LOOSE FLG FF WELD

Multiple occurrences of the same remark will be output in the form PLD BEND (2) where the last 2 characters are automatically generated. End One and End Two Columns Entries in these columns describe the operations performed in order to prepare the ends for fabrication. Five ATEXTs (-366 - -370) are available to identify the five basic operations that can be recognized by the ISOGEN system. For the new cut list format, certain items must be treated as BWs (Butt Welds), but do not have the BW end condition as part of the SKEY. These items include: Flanges (105/106) FLWN - Flange Weld Neck FOWN - Flange Orifice Weld Neck FLSE - LJSE Butt Weld Type All other 105’s and 106’s to use Square Cut The type of end preparation on pipe is determined by the SKEY of the fitting or by the weld type. For weld types: SKEYS WW, WS, WF, assume BW end preparation.

User-Defined BOM / Material Control File 8 - 13

8.9 Welds in the Material List __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ When using INTERGRAPH option 62 and ISOGEN option 64, welds can be added to the Material List. Welds can be displayed in any of the Fabrication/Erection/Offshore sections of the Material List. To list welds in the last position of each section of the Material List, use the heading defined by ATEXT -375. Welds added to the Material List will not be included in the standard M/C interface file. It is a user option in any user-defined M/C file. Accumulation of welds is controlled by ISOGEN option switch 74. Weld part numbers are not normally indicated on the plotted iso section of the isometric. If needed, ISOGEN option 73 with a Style 3 for weld part numbers can be used to place weld part numbers.

8.10 Style for Fabricated (Pulled) Bends Output __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ By using ISOGEN option 23 (position B), the outputs Bend Angle and Bend Radius can be displayed for pulled bends. The following is a typical revised output using the Style 1 and Style 2 Material Lists. Description ___________

NS ___

QTY _____

U03 Fabricated (Pulled) Bend 3.0D Bend Radius Angle 85.0

1

1

Part numbers less than 10 have a zero included (For example, U03 and not U3). Bend radius messages will use ATEXT -337 for bends expressed in number of diameters. (For example, 3.0D Bend Radius). A bend radius expressed in mm or Ft/Ins uses ATEXT -338 with the actual radius listed. (For example, 450 mm Bend Radius or 1’-6" Bend Radius). ATEXT -374 is used to generate the ANGLE text element in a format such as 85.0 (for an 85 degree angle).

8.11 Style for Material List Output __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ When using ISOGEN option switch 23, position A and B, with setting 10 or 11: The current form of output is sorted into the categories, Fab/Erec/Offshore, with sub-groups of Pipe, Flanges, Fittings, etc. within each category. Except for the addition of the new Weld sub-group, there is no change to the Material List that is currently generated. When Using ISOGEN option switch 23, position A and B, with setting 20 or 21:

8 - 14

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

An alternative form of output that has no separate Fab/Erec categories and no sub groups is generated. This creates a continuous Material List with component and welds listed in the order they were found in the intermediate data file (.idf file). This does not apply to Gaskets and Bolts that are accumulated; they are printed in the weld list as the first occurrence of each type.

8.12 Positioning the Title Block __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ ISOGEN option 25 allows you to either turn off or reposition the Title Block to the bottom of the Material List. ISOGEN calculates the height of the Title Block and draws a horizontal line between the two vertical lines that form the Material List boundaries. Checks are then made on ATEXTs -317 and -318. If they are not set to blanks and have not been positioned, the CL summary is positioned above the Title Block. ISOGEN option switch 35 reserves an area at the bottom of the Material List.

8.13 MLD File Content __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Heading Definitions for a Style 2 printed material list (ISOGEN MTO neutral file) in the MLD file contain three types of information items: A Heading Title element An associated data item to be listed with the Title element A basic activity identifier. All data items may be identified by either ’NAME’ or their .idf file record ID Number. A typical MLD file layout for a Style 2 Printed Material List heading would be:

PRINTED-MATERIAL-LIST TITLES PAGE ’ ’ ’Blank’ ’Blank’ PIPELINE REF :- ’-6’ PROJECT NO. :- ’-9’ ’Blank’ AREA REF :- ’-10’ REVISION NO. :- ’-8’ ’Blank’ PIPING SPEC :- ’-11’ DATE OF RUN :- ’-14’ ’Blank’ ’Blank’

The normal Material List would then be printed. This would be either the normal Style 1 list or any Style 2 list that you have defined. In the previous example:

User-Defined BOM / Material Control File 8 - 15

’’

is used with the page attribute and indicates a program generated page number.

’Blank’

indicates a blank line. Titles will be output at the top of each new page. Number of lines per page will be taken from the existing option switch 63.

Column Headings and Data Content Guidelines for Style 2 Material List Maximum heading width should not exceed 130 characters. There should always be the same number of data items as column headings unless space is left for future data additions. Column headings in the MLD file, must use the exact format of the required listing followed by the relevant data items to be printed. Each name (identifier) must be enclosed in single quotation marks.

8.14 MLD File Format Guidelines __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ As a general rule, all heading and title formatting must be positioned in the MLD file exactly as it is to be positioned on the printed output. Title elements, other than unique identifiers, can be used with any format. Data item identifiers will be enclosed in single quotation marks. Unique identifiers are used to determine what is defined and must match exactly. These identifiers include: — STYLE2-COLUMN-HEADINGS — STYLE2-DATA-ITEMS The format must be headings followed by data items. — Blank characters can be used as required.

8 - 16

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

— Blank columns are allowed. — Use a | character to indicate vertical column positions. Column headings can be any ascii string. Data items must carry the following: — A data item identifier — A start position along the horizontal line — A justification marker. Data Item Identifiers can be defined by using a Unique Name or, where applicable, the IDF Record Number (For example, ’Item-Code’ -30 L or ’-20’ 30 L). If a separation line is required on the generated Material List to separate the PART NO. column from the rest of the List, a | character should be inserted in the required position on the last line of the column headings. If an indicator is not found, the Material List will be generated without a separation line. If the PT-NO (part number identifier) column is located at the extreme left or right side of the Material List, ISOGEN will generate the vertical dividing line to separate the part numbers from the remaining items. A | character should be inserted end the end of the last line of the column headings to indicate where the right border line of the Material List is required (For example, two spaces beyond the maximum width of the last data item). Justification Markers R L N

Right Justified Left Justified A true number field. If N is used as a decimal number (Real) the decimal point will be positioned in the selected column. If N is not used as a decimal number (Integer), the units digit is positioned in the selected column.

Style 2 and Style 3 Data Item Identifiers The following values are available for use as Data Identifiers in the MLD file for Style 2 and Style 3 MTO’s. The allowable justification for each record is also listed. Unique Name ______

When Unique Name and associated IDF Record Number both exist, either may be used. Unique Names with no IDF Record Numbers are shown with a - in the IDF Record Number column (PT-NO, QTY,N.S., WEIGHT). When this occurs, use the Unique Name. IDF Record Numbers with no Unique Name are shown with a - in the Unique Name column. When this occurs, use IDF Record Number.

8.14.1 Style 3 Material List __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ A Style 3 Material List requires a backing sheet (drawing frame) that contains a reserved area for Material List information. The precise format is user-definable, but no column headings are defined in the MLD file. All column headings must already exist in the seed or border design files. This style of output requires two types of information. — STYLE3-CONTROLS — STYLE3-DATA-ITEMS Basic Control Information for a Style 3 Material List Unless otherwise stated, where a number is required it will be integer or in real mm’s with only one decimal place allowed. Unless otherwise stated, all of the following inputs are mandatory. Define the type of list that will be generated (sectionalized, continuous, etc.). Valid types include:

Continuous-Down Continuous-Up Fabrication-Down Fabrication-Up Erection-Down Erection-Up Offshore-Down Offshore-Up Erection/Offshore-Down Erection/Offshore-Up

8 - 18

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

These will be used as either single entries or multiple entries depending on the form of list required. Identify start positions for information using the format: Start-Position XPOS YPOS

Where: XPOS and YPOS is the x and y location in the design file Define vertical spacing between each line of horizontal text using the format: VERTICAL-SPACING value

Define the maximum number of lines that can be printed before automatic overflow onto another sheet occurs. This number can be defined for the complete list or on a section-by-section basis if the section function is being used. Use the format: MAXIMUM-ENTRIES value

Where: value is an integer Define the character height to be used for material list information using the format: TEXT-HEIGHT value

Define the level where material list information should be placed (optional). Using the format: DRAWING-LAYER value

Where: value is a level 1 - 63 Define character weight (optional). Using the format: TEXT-THICKNESS value Where: value is a weight 0 - 10 Style 3 Data Item Information Data items must specify a data item identifier and start position information. Identifiers -80 - -89 must carry the maximum number of characters allowed on each print line. Start position is the x position in mm’s that identifies the bottom left hand point of the text string to be plotted. All text will be LEFT justified.

Creating Seed Files for Extraction 9 - 1

9. Creating Seed Files for Extraction

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

To extract and plot isometrics, create a seed design file and a seed plot request file. The seed file names are keyed in at the Interactive Isometric Extraction form and the Define Default Set form (see Interactive Isometric Extraction, page 3 - 1 and Define Default Sets, page 5 - 13 for more information).

9.1 Creating an Isometric Seed File __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The isometric seed file is an empty MicroStation design file that the system copies before creating a new isometric. The seed file usually contains a single reference file consisting of the drawing border and title block. To create an isometric seed file: 1.

Copy one of the product option files (defaults.dat, mxdefaults.dat, etc.) and set ISOGEN options block word 14 for one of the standard drawing sheet sizes, or words 15 and 16 for a nonstandard sheet size. Setting these option block words defines a box within which your drawing border, title block and the ISOGEN drawing will reside.

2.

Set ISOGEN option 3 to 1 so that you can see the corners of the drawing border box when an isometric is created. Also, set the ISOGEN options block word 35 to define the reserved area for the title block.

9-2

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

3.

Set ISOGEN options 10 - 13 to create margins from the edge of the box created in Step 1. All of your user-defined border and title block graphics must be drawn within these margins; one or more of them will probably be quite large. You cannot reserve irregularly shaped areas within the drawing box for your border and title block. You must fit them into the rectangular margin areas.

4.

Generate an isometric using the interactive software (see Interactive Isometric Extraction, page 3 - 1 section Interactive Isometric Generation). The iso should be small enough so that only one sheet is generated.

5.

Call up the iso in graphics and plot it with the appropriate drawing size. Plot the area that will contain both your user-defined graphics and the ISOGEN drawing. Do not plot a small strip along the bottom of the drawing (appx. 1/8") since you will probably want to move into that area some ISOGEN-generated text strings that cannot be turned off. You do not have to plot an ISOGEN D size drawing with D size dimensions. You can use ISOGEN switches to make any size drawing you wish. You can then scale the drawing to have any plotted size you like. For this reason, experimentation is usually needed to arrive at a suitable combination of ISOGEN and plotting parameters.

6.

Examine the plot. There must be sufficient space for your user-defined border and title block graphics. Also, the drawing graphics and text size must be suitable for the plot size. Adjust ISOGEN option 14 or options 15 and 16 to adjust the scale of the drawing. Adjust options 4 and 27 to change the text size.

7.

Cycle through Steps 2 through 5 until you are satisfied with the resulting plot. In general, ISOGEN seems to perform better with a larger drawing area than a smaller one (the drawing area is increased with option 14 or options 15 and 16). Try to find a median between providing ISOGEN a large drawing area and scaling down the drawing for plotting purposes. At some point, scaling down a large drawing results in text that is too small. If the text size cannot be increased, then you will either have to plot with a bigger scale (resulting in a larger drawing) or reduce the ISOGEN drawing area (to reduce the amount of scaling needed at plot time).

8.

After completing Steps 1 through 6, create a drawing border in a separate design file. Create a 2D design file for your border and attach the drawing file created above as a reference file. Use the drawing to locate your border and title block.

9.

Use the reference file attachment from the border file and attach the new border to the new seed.

10.

Place the required text nodes in the new seed file for use with the Title Block Tables file.

11.

Turn off the ISOGEN border with ISOGEN word 18.

Creating Seed Files for Extraction 9 - 3

9.2 Creating a Plot Request File __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The plot request file is a special file used by the plotting software when processing a plot job. It contains values for plotting options and, sometimes, a definition of the plot itself. The format of the plot request is standard IPLOT format.

9.2.1 IPLOT Plot Request Files __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ An IPLOT plot request file is necessary if you want to plot isometrics using the IPLOT software.

Use the following steps to create an IPLOT plot request file: 1.

Copy your isometric seed file and get into the copy in graphics. Set up view 1 to have all of the parameters that you wish to be active for the plotted drawings (that is, turn off text node display, turn on/off levels to be plotted, etc.). Save this set-up with FILE DESIGN. Determine the coordinates, in working units, of the area to be plotted. These should be the lower left and upper right corners of the fence that would have been used for plotting. Write the coordinates down.

2.

From the command line prompt, key in the following command to create the IPLOT plot request file:

$iplot create "plot parameter filename" -design=design name -queue=queue name -region=[x1, y1, x2, y2] -scale=design units:plotter units -view=#

where: plot parameter filename

plot parameter filename to be generated

design name

is the name of the design file created by copying the seed file in step 1 above.

queue

identifies the plot queue on the plot node.

region

identifies the area to plot. Use the coordinates determined from step 1.

9-4

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

design units: plotter units

is an option scaling ratio for the plotted area. If you prefer, you may use -XSIZE=x size or -YSIZE=y size instead of the -SCALE= parameter to define the scaling. You may also leave this parameter off if no scaling is needed.

#-

view number

Example 1: iplot create test.i -design=test.dgn -queue=muxque -region=[0,0,17:0,11:8] -view=1 The system creates the file test.i.

Mapping Attributes to the Title Block 10 - 1

10. Mapping Attributes to the Title Block

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The Title Block Tables Files are used to associate database attribute data and other data with text nodes in an isometric design file. You make this association between attribute data and design file text nodes so the batch iso extraction software can automatically fill out the drawing title block. Intergraph option 34 must be set to 1 before the software will generate the title block data files. You can obtain title block information from several sources using the Title Block Tables File. These sources include database attributes from the line being extracted (for example, piping materials class), data stored within the project control database information (for example, revision block data), from the Notes Table and internally generated information (for example, sheet number). The format of the tables and the table entries in the Title Block Table Files are identical to that of tables and table entries in the iso extraction Defaults file. The format is as follows: The body of the table is preceded by a keyword. Each keyword is followed by a number that defines the number of table entries. The elements of each table entry are separated by commas. The following three tables are used to map attributes to the drawing title block: The text node number can not be greater than 999. Also, the number of text nodes in a seed file can not exceed 250. 1.

Notes Table (Table keyword is SEGMENT_DATA_TABLE) You can use this table to identify the attributes that should be summarized in tabular form on each sheet of a multisheet isometric. Usually, data summarized in this form will be from piping segments, but it may also originate from the Notes Table. When the title block for a particular sheet is filled in, only data from segments extracted to that sheet is placed in the title block.

2.

Drawing Data Table (Table keyword DRAWING_DATA_TABLE) You can use this table to identify attributes from the first piping segment, the largest piping segment, from the Notes Table or from the project control database. Attributes mapped through this table will appear on every sheet of a multisheet isometric.

10 - 2

3.

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

Sheet Data Table (Table keyword SHEET_DATA_TABLE) You use this table to place the sheet number and number of sheets in each drawing. You can also use this table to append the sheet number onto the drawing number for each sheet, making the drawing number unique for each sheet.

Mapping Attributes to the Title Block 10 - 3

10.1 SEGMENT_DATA_TABLE __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Each sheet of a multisheet iso consists of the piping from one or more segments in the piping model. You can use the SEGMENT_DATA_TABLE to define a summary block of segment information in a drawing title block. The ISOGEN interface uses this table to create an output file containing data for all of the segments that make up the pipeline. Next, ISOGEN creates an output file that identifies which segments appear on each sheet of a multisheet iso. These two files are then used to determine the information that must be summarized on each individual sheet. Example 1: Suppose that for each sheet of an isometric, you want to summarize, in a table, data from all of the piping segments that appear. Here is an example table for a specific sheet: Piping Spec Design Pressure Design Temperature Insulation Type Insulation Thickness

1C0031 150 300 C 6"

1C0031 150 300 D 8"

1C0080 150 600 C 6"

In this example, there are three segments where the data being summarized is different. This does not mean that the sheet contains only three segments, but that there are only three different segments (where the difference is defined only by the attributes in the table). The segment attributes shown in the table above are: Piping Spec Design Pressure Design Temperature Insulation Type Insulation Thickness

Table 12, Table 12, Table 12, Table 12, Table 12,

Column 12 Column 28 Column 29 Column 14 Column 15

The purpose of the SEGMENT_DATA_TABLE is to allow you to define all of the attributes that make up a single column in the title block summary table. Once you have defined these attributes, the batch extraction software determines how many columns of actual data are needed based upon the specific segments that appear on each sheet. You must have one table entry in the SEGMENT_DATA_TABLE for each attribute you want to summarize in the Segment Summary Table. An entry in the table has the following form: TBLNO, ST, SC, SN, OFF, LEN, FLAG, NODE, INC where:

10 - 4

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

TBLNO

is a table number that ranges from 1 to 9. You can define up to 9 different tables in your title block. For each different table number you should define the attributes and other information that comprise the table definition. For each table number defined, one output file record is generated for each segment in the pipeline. Therefore, if you use two table numbers and a pipeline contains 10 segments, 20 records are generated in the output file. To eliminate trailing zeros from isometric attributes, create an isometric label for the appropriate attributes (temperature, pressure, etc.) then call the isometric label (instead of the table/column) from the title block mapping file.

ST, SC

defines a segment column that will appear in the table. Valid values for ST are 12 and 1.

SN

is a label description library number used to define an attribute or a composite attribute that should appear in the title block table. When SN is specified (as non-zero), ST and SC should be set to 1. If SN is a negative value, the Notes Table is accessed. Text is then extracted from the Notes Table based on the value defined by the absolute value of SN.

OFF

is a byte offset (relative to 0) to the start of the field in the output file record. Set OFF as follows: The minimum offset must be 11. The first 11 bytes of each output record are reserved for the table number and segment occurrence number. Fields from different table numbers must not overlap. For example, data in table number 1 might be mapped to fields 12 through 100, while data in table number 2 might be mapped to fields 101 through 200. If you do overlap fields, the data might not be sorted properly in the title block. Do not map any field to an offset greater than 255.

LEN

is the length of the field in the output record. The offset plus length of any field must not exceed 255.

FLAG

is a special sort flag that indicates that the field is to be considered a sort field for purposes of sorting the data prior to placing it in the title block. Set FLAG to:

1

to specify that the field should be sorted in descending order.

-1

to specify that the field should be sorted in ascending order.

When multiple fields are used for sorting the data, the most important sort field should appear in the notes table prior to the least important.

Mapping Attributes to the Title Block 10 - 5

NODE

is the initial text node number in the summary table for the attribute. The summary information is mapped to a matrix of text nodes in the seed isometric design file. The size of the matrix needed is not known until after the isometric is extracted. Specify here the lowest text node number for an attribute in the table.

INC

is the increment for the text node number. Text node numbers for each item in the attribute summary are determined by taking the base node number and adding a multiple of the increment whenever a new column (or row) of data is added.

Example 2: Define the notes table for the data summarized in Example 11.1. Assume that the seed isometric design file has been created with the following set up: Piping Spec Design Pressure Design Temperature Insulation Type Insulation Thickness

+10 +11 +12

+20 +21 +22

+30 +31 +32

+40 +41 +42

+50 +51 +52

+60 +61 +62

+70 +71 +72

+80 +81 +82

+13 +14

+23 +24

+33 +34

+43 +44

+53 +54

+63 +64

+73 +74

+83 +84

The numbers represent the text nodes that have been placed in the seed design file. Since there are only eight columns of node numbers, at most only eight segments can be summarized in the title block. If there are more than eight different segments on a sheet, some are ignored and not summarized in the title block. The table needed to summarize this information would be: 1, 1, 1, 1, 1,

12, 12, 12, 12, 12,

12, 28, 29, 14, 15,

0, 0, 0, 0, 0,

11, 17, 21, 25, 27,

6, 4, 4, 2, 4,

1, 0, 0, 0, 0,

10, 11, 12, 13, 14,

10 10 10 10 10

!piping spec !design pressure !design temperature !insulation type !insulation thickness

The first entry in the table maps the piping spec to column 12 for a length of 6 bytes. The piping spec field is a sort key that alphabetizes the columns of data in the table so that they appear in alphabetical order by spec name. The beginning node number for spec is 10 and each new column of data has an increment of 10. In this example, the first spec is placed at node 10, the second at 20, the third at 30 and so on. If you put an attribute like segment npd in a table such as the one in Example 2, a typical line could generate a large number of columns or rows in the summary table. A better solution might be to use a different TBLNO for this type of attribute and summarize in a separate table on the drawing. Example 3: Summarize the data shown in Example 2 in one table. Summarize all of the npd’s and line names shown on a sheet in separate tables.

10 - 6

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

The following notes table would accomplish this: 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 3,

12, 12, 12, 12, 12, 12, 12,

12, 28, 29, 14, 15, 11, -2,

0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0,

11, 17, 21, 25, 27, 31, 37,

6, 4, 4, 2, 4, 6, 8,

1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, -1,

10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 100, 150,

10 10 10 10 10 1 1

!piping spec !design pressure !design temperature !insulation type !insulation thickness !npd !line id

In this example, the fields defined in tables 2 and 3 do not overlap the fields defined in table 1. If the seed isometric design file contains only text nodes 100, 101, and 102 for npd’s, only the three largest sizes on the sheet are displayed. This happens because FLAG is set to 1 indicating that the npd field is a sort field.

Mapping Attributes to the Title Block 10 - 7

10.2 DRAWING_DATA_TABLE __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ You can use the Drawing Data Table to define attributes that should be placed in every drawing sheet title block. Data that you can place in every title block can originate from the first segment of the pipeline processed by the ISOGEN interface, from the largest npd segment of the pipeline, from the Notes Table, from the project control database, or it can be an internally generated attribute. An entry in the drawing data table consists of the following: SOURCE, TBL, COL, NUM, FLAG, NODE where: SOURCE

is the source of the attribute that is to be mapped to the title block. Set the value of SOURCE to one of the following:

TBL, COL

1

if the attribute is from the first segment of the pipeline.

2

if the attribute is from the largest npd segment of the pipeline.

3

if the attribute is from the Project Database.

4

if the attribute is one of the special items as defined in the description of TBL, COL that follows.

5

if the attribute is from the Notes Table accessed with attributes from the first piping segment.

6

if the attribute is from the Notes Table accessed with attributes from the largest piping segment. defines the specific attribute that you want to map to the title block. The exact interpretation of TBL, COL depends upon SOURCE as follows: SOURCE is 1 or 2 TBL, COL is the database table, column pair of the attribute to map. For a listing of the database structure, see Piping Design Database Table Format, page D - 4 . SOURCE is 3 TBL, COL identifies the attribute to retrieve from the Project Control Database. The following index must be used for TBL, COL. Set TBL to 1 for data from the area level of the file (that is, any data which appears in the Revise Iso Area form while in the batch iso environment). Set the value of COL as follows:

SOURCE is 5 or 6 TBL should be 1. COL defines which value to return from an entry in the Notes Table. For more information, refer to Creating a Notes Table, page 11 - 1 . NUM

NUM functions differently depending upon SOURCE as follows: SOURCE is 1 or 2 NUM is a label library number used to define composite database attributes as an alternative to TBL, COL. When NUM is defined COL should be 0. TBL should be set to 1. The label must refer only to segment table 12. SOURCE is 3 NUM defines which revision level to return data from. Flag

If the value of flag is such that the revision that it identifies is less than 0, no output is generated. When the batch run option INCREMENT REVISION NUMBER is in effect, the current revision number is one plus the latest revision number stored in the project database Table 185 Column 17. If the option is not in effect, the current revision number is the latest revision number stored in the project database Table 185 Column 17. SOURCE is 4 NUM must be 0 SOURCE is 5 or 6

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

NUM is a label library label that, when expanded, becomes the input into the Notes Table. TBL must be 1. Refer to Creating a Notes Table, page 11 - 1 for more information. FLAG

When SOURCE is 1 or 2, you should set FLAG to 1 if you want to inhibit the conversion of code-listed attributes to their text-string equivalents. For other values of SOURCE, FLAG should be set to 0.

NODE

is the text node number to which the attribute should be mapped.

Example 1: 1, 12, 0, 951, 0, 5 Maps the string defined by label number 951 to text node number 5. Label 951 is expanded using attributes from the first piping segment of the pipeline. 3, 2, 91, 0, 0, 97 Maps the first user data field for a drawing to text node 97. 3, 1, 22, 0, 0, 96 Maps the defaults file stored at the area level in the Batch Data File to text node number 96. 4, 0, 3, 0, 0, 95 Maps the options file used for the current extraction to text node number 95. 6, 1, 3, 979, 0, 11 Maps the 3rd output field from a Notes Table record to text node number 11. The Notes Table record key is defined by label library label number 979, which is expanded using attributes from the largest piping segment in the pipeline. Example 2: Mapping Values to Title Blocks

It is possible to map a value that is not stored in the database to the title block of an iso using the Title Block Table, isoc.blk, in conjunction with the Notes Table, isoc.note. When entries contain a source of 5 or 6 in the DRAWING_DATA_TABLE section of the Title Block Table, isoc.blk, as shown below, the system references the Notes Table, isoc.note, for the data to use on the text node of the iso title block. Examples of a Title Block Table isoc.blk and the Notes Table, isoc.note, are shown below. Title Block Table entry: isoc.blk

DRAWING_DATA_TABLE 2 5, 1, 1, 992, 0, 12 5, 1, 1, 982, 0, 15

Mapping Attributes to the Title Block 10 - 11

Notes Table entries: isoc.note

1C0031 2C0032 SS CS

>150# CS >300# CS >Stainless Steel >Carbon Steel

In the example above, the line containing 5, 1, 1, 992, 0, 12 uses label 992. Label 992 is defined as Table 12, Column 12 (piping_materials_class). The system reads Table 12, Column 12 and extracts the data. For instance, the extracted data might be piping_materials_class 1C0031. The system then compares 1C0031 with the Notes Table and prints the corresponding value of 150# CS on text node 12. If the piping materials class value is 2C0032, 300# CS is placed on text node 12. Likewise, the line containing 5, 1, 1, 982, 0, 15 uses label 982. Label 982 is the attribute value defined for the Materials of Construction Class. The system reads the attribute value and extracts it. For instance, the extracted data might be CS. The system then compares CS with the Notes Table and prints the corresponding value, Carbon Steel, on text node 15. If the extracted data is SS, Stainless Steel is placed on text node 15. When there is no match in the Notes Table for a specific piping materials class entry, the error message ’Notes table look-up failed’ is displayed in the .err file.

10.3 SHEET_DATA_TABLE __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ You can use the Sheet Data Table to map the sheet number and number of sheets into the drawing title block and to append the sheet number to the drawing number prior to its placement in the title block. A table entry is defined as follows: SOURCE, TBL, COL, FLAG, NODE where: SOURCE

is the data item source. Set the value of SOURCE as follows: SOURCE 0 3

TBL, COL

Attribute source Internally generated attribute Attribute from the Project Database

identifies a data item only when SOURCE is set to 3. (Use TBL=2, COL=5 to specify the drawing number.) For each sheet in the isometric, the sheet number is appended to the data item before it is placed in the title block. If SOURCE is set to 0, TBL and COL must also be set to 0.

FLAG

identifies internally generated attributes. FLAG is also used to append the sheet number to the attribute defined by TBL, COL. Set the value of FLAG as follows: FLAG

Data item

1 2 -1 -2

Sheet number when SOURCE = 0 Number of sheets when SOURCE = 0 Append sheet num to attribute defined by TBL, COL Append sheet num prefixed by a "-"

Sheet number and number of sheets can also be located in a title block using the MOVABLE_TEXT table in the options file. However, that method will not result in correct sheet numbers when a multi-section isometric is extracted. NODE

is the text node number to which the attribute should be attached.

Example 1: Develop the table to map sheet number and number of sheets to the title block. Show the entry needed to append the sheet number to the drawing number for each sheet.

Creating a Notes Table 11 - 1

11. Creating a Notes Table

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

This section describes how to create a Notes Table. A Notes Table is a user-defined table that you can use to map nondatabase attributes into an iso drawing border during batch iso extraction. The table consists of one input together with a variable number of outputs. The input to the table is either a fixed string, such as "PROJECT DATA", or is derived from segment level database attributes. During a batch run, a table input is determined by expanding a label library number that you define in the Title Block Map (refer to DRAWING_DATA_TABLE, page 10 - 7 and SEGMENT_DATA_TABLE, page 10 - 3 for more information). The label is used as the key or index into the notes table. The table is searched until a match is found with the key. When a match is found, one of the table outputs is mapped to a text node. You define which output is mapped to which text node in the Title Block Map. Table Format The Notes Table is an ascii data file you create with the text editor. In the file one record or line is an entry. The number of table entries is unlimited. A single entry is limited, however, to 256 bytes or characters. The key and table outputs are separated from each other with the greater than (>) character. For more information, refer to DRAWING_DATA_TABLE, page 10 - 7 . The format of a table entry is: TBL INPUT > OUTPUT1> OUTPUT2> ... >OUTPUTn Example 1: PROJECT DATA > PROJECT ABC> ANYWHERE, USA> REFINERY EXPANSION> 6368-20 The key for this table entry is the fixed string "PROJECT DATA". The outputs are the strings "PROJECT ABC", "ANYWHERE, USA", "REFINERY EXPANSION", and "6368-10". U50-A10> RED The input for this table entry is U50-A10 (unit 50 - area 10). The only output is the string "RED".

11.1 Using the isoc.note File __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The notes file, isoc.note, in conjunction with the title block tables file, isoc.blk allows you to map a value, not stored in the database, to the title block. The files isoc.note and isoc.blk are delivered examples of a Notes file and a Title Block Tables file. Example Title Block Table entry:

Example DRAWING_DATA_TABLE entry: 2 5, 1, 1, 992, 0, 12 5, 1, 1, 982, 0, 15

Example Notes Table entry:

1C0031 2C0032 SS CS

>150# CS >300# CS >Stainless Steel >Carbon Steel

Entries in the DRAWING_DATA_TABLE section of the Title Block Tables file that have a source of 5 or 6 cause the software to search the Notes Table for information to output onto a text node in the iso title block. For more information, see DRAWING_DATA_TABLE, page 10 - 7 . In the previous example, line 5, 1, 1, 992, 0, 12 uses label 992 (table 12, column 12; piping material class) to define search/access criteria that will be used to search line segments in the piping model. The output of the piping model segment search is used as input to the Notes Table (see previous example). If the value returned from the search was piping material class 1C0031, it would be used as input into the Notes Table. The resulting output of piping material class 1C0031 would be 150# CS. The software would then place the output value, 150# CS, on text node 12. If the piping material class had been 2C0032, the resulting text on text node 12 would be 300# CS. Any other piping material class found as a result of the search would output an error Notes table look-up failed. This is because the input value is not in the Notes Table. The second line in the Title Block Table entry (5, 1, 1, 982, 0, 15) will write a note to text node 15 on the iso if the Materials of Construction Class attribute value stored with the line segment is SS or CS. If SS is returned from the search of the previously mentioned Title Block Table Entry, "Stainless Steel" would be placed on text node 15. If CS was returned, "Carbon Steel" would be placed on text node 15.

The MTO Neutral File Record Map 12 - 1

12. The MTO Neutral File Record Map

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The MTO neutral file record map consists of a set of tables that is used to format records in the MTO neutral file. A record is generated in the MTO neutral file for each component that is MTO-able in the extracted pipeline. The neutral file record length can be either the standard 255 byte or the expanded 1024 byte depending on the setting of Intergraph option 64. The format of a record in the neutral file varies depending on the type of component that generates the record. The following record types may exist in a neutral file: Commodity item record Pipe record Engineered item record Instrument item record Pipe support record Implied bolts record Implied gasket record Implied weld record Generated item record While each of these record types can have several fields that contain the same data, each can also contain additional data that is unique to its type (for example, number of bolts in the bolt record). The neutral file map tables tell the iso extraction software which design database attributes to place in each record and where to place them. The map is composed of four tables: 1.

Common data table (Table keyword is COMMON_RECORD_DATA) The common data table defines attributes that are to be placed into each record regardless of the type of the record.

2.

Component data table (Keyword is COMPONENT_ATTRIBUTES) The component data table defines the attributes that are to be placed into commodity item, pipe, specialty item, instrument and support record types.

12 - 2

3.

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

Implied item table (Keyword is IMPLIED_ITEMS) The implied item table defines the attributes that are to be placed into bolt, gasket and weld type records.

4.

Generated item table (keyword is GENERATED_ITEMS) The generated item table defines the attributes that are to be placed into the records of items that generated through the reference database.

The tables themselves are similar to options file tables in that the body of a table is preceded by a keyword that identifies the table. The keyword is followed by a number that indicates the number of table entries. One row or line constitutes a table entry. One table entry defines a neutral file record field. Each table is discussed in detail in this section.

12.1 COMMON_RECORD_DATA __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Fields defined in this table appear in every neutral file record. An entry in this table has the following form: TABLE, COL, OFFSET, LENGTH, FLAG Where: TABLE, COL

is the table, column specification for a segment level attribute that is to be mapped into the record or is set as shown in the index below for a special data item. TABLE _______

The commodity code can be mapped through this table or through the component level tables. It should be mapped here when commodity codes are size dependent.

The record type is a simple character string as follows: COMP - for commodity items PIPE - for pipe ENGR - for specialty items INST - for instruments SUPP - for pipe supports GASK - for gaskets BOLT - for bolts WELD - for welds GENR - for generated items File units is a simple character string as follows: ENGL - for English units MIX - for mixed units METR - for all Metric units can also use COL=-2 to obtain the line ID rather than the line name.

Generated items consist of chain wheel operators and items implied through the reference database. OFFSET

Is the offset (relative to 0) in the record for the start of the field.

LENGTH

Is the length of the data item’s field. The sum of offset + length must not exceed the length of the output record (255 characters).

FLAG

Is a special flag that is normally 0 but is set to 1 to inhibit conversion of code-listed attributes to their ASCII string equivalents. When FLAG is set to 1, the code-list number will be placed in the record.

Example: 12, 12, 14, 6, 0

maps the piping materials class into EVERY MTO neutral file record starting at output field 15 (offset 14) for 6 bytes.

12 - 4

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

12, -2, 4, 10, 0

maps the line id (defined in the defaults file) into EVERY MTO record starting at output field 5 for 10 bytes.

-1, 1, 20, 8, 0

maps the component database occurrence number into EVERY record starting at output field 21 for 8 bytes. Note that for implied materials this is the occurrence number of the GENERATING component.

-1, 5, 0, 4, 0

maps the record type of each record into output field 1 for 4 bytes.

12.2 COMPONENT_ATTRIBUTES __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Fields defined by this table appear in component, specialty item, pipe, instrument and pipe support records. An entry in the table has the following form: CT, CC, ET, EC, PT, PC, IT, IC, ST, SC, CPI, OFFSET, LENGTH, FLAG Where: CT, CC

defines a table, column specification for the case when the current item that is generating a neutral file record is a component. Valid values for CT are 0, 12 and 34.

ET, EC

defines a table, column specification for the case when the current item is a specialty item. Valid values for ET are 0, 12 and 34.

PT, PC

defines a table, column specification for the case when the current item is a pipe. Valid values for PT are 0, 12, and 50.

IT, IC

defines a table, column specification for the case when the current item is an instrument. Valid values for IT are 0, 12, 67.

ST, SC

defines a table, column specification for the case when the current item is a pipe support. Valid values for ST are 0, 12, and 80. When the MTO neutral file record is being generated for an item then its type is determined and one of the entity, attribute pairs above is chosen for purposes of fetching an attribute from the database. Not all pairs in the above set need to be defined. If a component data table entry should apply only to one type of item, set the entity, attribute pairs for other types to zeroes.

CPI

is a connect point identifier. It is used to access connect point attributes by connect point color (green or red) rather than by attribute number for the COMPONENT_ATTRIBUTES table. CPI is also used by the IMPLIED_ITEMS table when set to 1 to indicate that the attribute will be retrieved from the connect point of the item generating the implied material.

The MTO Neutral File Record Map 12 - 5

When set to 1, CPI is used by the IMPLIED_ITEMS table to indicate that the attribute will be retrieved from the connect point of the item generating the implied material. When CPI is set (nonzero), CT, ET, PT, IT, and ST should be set to zero and CC, EC, PC, and IC should be set to one of the values shown in the following index. CPI ____

OFFSET

is the offset into the neutral file record to the start of the field.

LENGTH

is the length, in bytes, of the field.

FLAG

Is a special flag that is normally 0 but is set to 1 to inhibit conversion of code-listed attributes to their ASCII string equivalents. When FLAG is set to 1, the code-list number will be placed in the record. If lap joint flanges are mapped to ISOGEN record number 106 to generate both the stub and flange in the ISOGEN material list, a separate record generated is in the MTO neutral file for the stub as well (refer to the section The PDS-toISOGEN Symbol Map, page 13 - 1 .) The MTO record for the stub is generated by overlaying attributes from the reference database entry for the stub onto the database record for the flange and then applying the COMPONENT_ATTRIBUTES table to this temporary occurrence.

Example 1: 34, 3, 34, 3, 50, 3, 67, 3, 80, 4, 0, 53, 6, 0 This table entry maps the item name attribute for all component types into the neutral file record starting at column 53 for 6 bytes.

34, 4, 0, 0, 50, 4, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 60, 6, 0 This table entry maps the new item name attribute for component types of COMPONENT and PIPE. Nothing is generated in the record for SPECIALTY ITEMS, INSTRUMENTS or PIPE SUPPORTS by this table entry. 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 66, 8, 0 This table entry maps the GREEN nominal pipe size (also referred to as size 1) into the neutral file record. Since pipe supports do not have connect point properties, no number is specified for them in the entry. 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 2, 74, 8, 0 This table entry maps the RED nominal pipe size (also referred to as size 2) into the neutral file record. 0, 4, 0, 4, 0, 4, 0, 4, 0, 0, 1, 94, 6, 0 This table entry maps the GREEN schedule (schedule 1) into the neutral file record. 12, 14, 12, 14, 12, 14, 12, 14, 0, 0, 0, 118, 2, 0 This table entry maps the insulation purpose attribute from the segment into the neutral file record for all items except pipe supports. 12, 27, 12, 27, 12, 27, 12, 27, 0, 0, 0, 126, 2, 1 This entry maps the paint code CODE-LIST VALUE from the segment into the MTO neutral file record. The code-list value is put in the record rather than the attribute itself because FLAG is set to 1 and the attribute being mapped is code-listed. Example 2: The following is an example of how to set the COMPONENT_ATTRIBUTES to extract item inspection number and inspection numbers for item connect point one. 34, 121, 34, 121, 50, 59, 67, 128, 80, 38, 0, 96, 4, 0 !item insp key 34, 122, 34, 122, 50, 60, 67, 129, 0, 0, 0, 100, 4, 0 !cp1 insp key

12.3 IMPLIED_ITEMS __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Fields defined in this table appear in neutral file records for bolts, gaskets and welds. The implied items table provides a means to map attributes that are: from the component that caused the item to be generated (for example: flange pressure rating)

from the spec entry for the implied item (for example: for the commodity code)

The MTO Neutral File Record Map 12 - 7

from data calculated when the item is generated (for example: bolt length) An entry in this table has the following form: TYPE, CT, CC, PT, PC, IT, IC, ST, SC, CPF, ITEM, OFFSET, LENGTH,

CT, CC

defines a table, column specification from a generating component that is to be mapped when the generating component is a COMPONENT or SPECIALTY ITEM. Valid values for CT are 0, 12 and 34.

PT, PC

defines a table, column specification from a generating component that is to be mapped when the generating component is a PIPE. Valid values for PT are 0, 12 and 50.

IT, IC

defines a table, column specification from a generating component that is to be mapped when the generating component is an instrument. Valid values for IT are 0, 12 and 67.

ST, SC

defines a table, column specification that is to be mapped when the attribute is taken from the reference database entry for the implied item. The only valid values for ST are 202 and 0.

CPF

is a connect point flag. When this item is set to 1 it indicates that the attribute will be retrieved from the connect point of the item generating the implied material. When set other than zero, CT, PT and IT should be set to 0. CC, PC and IC should be set to one of the values shown in the following Connect Point Attributes index.

FLAG

is a special flag used to inhibit the conversion of code-listed attributes to the ASCII string equivalents. You cannot map attributes for a weld from the reference database into the neutral file record. However, you can use a component TYPE of 4 (for ALL implied items) when mapping attributes from the spec for bolts and gaskets. In the case of a weld the field will be left blank.

Two welds may be generated on olet-like components. The first weld, which corresponds to the weld that attaches the olet to the header, is given the size from the header pipe as a safe estimate of the weld size.

The MTO Neutral File Record Map 12 - 9

The second weld, which corresponds to the point where the branch pipe attaches to the olet, is given the branch pipe size.

No welds are generated at branch welds. Branch welds are defined as those components that are mapped to the ISOGEN symbol TESO. The reason for this is that the component itself represents a weld and it is generated in the neutral file.

One weld is generated at a reinforcing pad. The weld represents the attachment of the pad to the header pipe. The reinforcing pad component represents the attachment of the branch pipe to the header.

Example: This table entry maps the gasket size into the neutral file record starting at output field 67 for 8 bytes. 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 66, 8, 0 This table entry maps the item name from the reference database for a bolt into the neutral file record. 2, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 202, 3, 0, -1, 53, 6, 0 This table entry maps the bolt length into the neutral file record. 2, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2, 127, 8, 0 This table entry maps the inspection number for welds, bolts and gaskets into the MTO neutral file record. 4, 0, 13, 0, 13, 0, 13, 0, 0, 1, 0, 51, 4, 0

12.4 GENERATED_ITEMS __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Fields defined in this table appear in neutral file records for items generated through the reference database and for chain wheel operators. The generated items table provides a means to map attributes that are: from the component that caused the item to be generated

from the reference database entry for the implied item (for example: for the commodity code)

13. The PDS-to-ISOGEN Symbol Map

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

You can use the PDS-to-ISOGEN symbol map table to tell the ISOGEN interface software which ISOGEN graphics symbol to use for a specific PDS component when it generates the Isometric drawing. The table is composed of 9 columns of data that are position-dependent (that is, the data must appear in specific columns in the table). You can add comments to the table by placing an an exclamation point (!) in column 1. A table entry consists of one row of data. The format for a table entry is as follows: PDS Item name:

Columns 2-7, left justified

ISOGEN symbol name:

Columns 9-12, left justified

ISOGEN record number:

Columns 14-16, right justified

Number of connect points:

Columns 18-19, right justified

Tap name:

Columns 21-24, left justified

Tap record number:

Columns 26-28, right justified

PDS operator name:

Columns 30-35, left justified

end prep low:

Columns 37-40, right justified

end prep high:

Columns 42-45, right justified

13.1 The PDS Item Name __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The PDS item name is the primary index into the table. Each PDS item that exists in a pipeline must have an entry for it in this table. As each component is processed, the table is searched for a corresponding table entry or entries.

13.2 The ISOGEN Symbol Name __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The ISOGEN symbol name is the primary output from the symbol map table. All of the ISOGEN symbols available with ISOGEN are shown in Appendix B. Look especially at the notes at the end of the appendix. The symbol names are generally four characters in length. The first two characters identify the type of symbol and the last two identify the end preparation. For many symbols, the end prep characters are double asterisks (**). The ** indicate that the symbol may end in one of the following sets of characters:

13 - 2

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

BW - indicating buttweld ends FL - indicating flanged ends SC - indicating threaded ends SW - indicating socket weld ends CP - indicating compression ends PL - indicating plain ends You can carry the variable end prep notation into the symbol map by substituting the characters XX for the characters **. For example, the ISOGEN symbol name for a ball valve is BV** and the table entry would be BVXX. When a line is extracted, the XX is converted to one of the end prep codes shown above based on the end prep of the component in the model. When you map a PDS component to an ISOGEN component, you must be sure that the connect point skeletons (that is, configuration or geometrical arrangement of the connect points) are the same. You cannot, for example, map a gate valve (whose connect points lie on a straight line) to an elbow (whose connect points define a 90-degree change-of-direction). The basic connect point skeletons handled by ISOGEN are: end point component (plug, blind flange)

straight-through component (gate valve, flange)

offset component (eccentric reducer)

return component (u bend)

change-of-direction component (elbow, angle valve)

single branch component (tee, olet, 3-way valve)

double branch component (cross, 4-way valve) The change-of-direction components for elbows are not restricted to 90-degree changes of direction. Other change-of-direction components, such as 2-way valves, are restricted. The tee components TESO and TEXX can have variable angle changes of direction. Other branch components, such as 3-way valves, must have 90degree changes in direction.

13.3 The ISOGEN Record Number __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Another primary output from the symbol map table is the ISOGEN record number. It is critical that the ISOGEN record match the component type identified by the symbol name. ISOGEN record numbers are defined in Appendix B.

The PDS-to-ISOGEN Symbol Map

13 - 3

The symbols in Appendix B are grouped by component type. The component type is identified at the top of the first page of each group of symbols. For example, a CV** is an instrument while a VG** is a valve. Appendix B, Record Identification Numbers, shows that the record number for an instrument In Leg is 90. The record number for a valve is 130. The PDS symbol for a lap joint flange represents two components: the flange ring and the stub. You can generate either one or two components in the isometric when you extract the line. If the ISOGEN record number for the lap joint is set to 105, only one component (one entry in the BOM) is generated. If the ISOGEN record number is set to 106, the ISOGEN interface automatically generates a component representing the stub. In this case, you must have an entry in the reference database for the stub. The spec access data for the stub is identical to that for the flange except that the option code is that of the flange plus 5000.

13.4 Number of Connect Points __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Another table output is the number of connect points for the component. This number does not include taps that the symbol may have. It is used both for identifying closure components (plugs, caps, blinds) and for processing tapped components. It is most important that this number be correct for components that may be tapped. The number of connect points is also used to distinguish tee type components (which have three connect points) from branch weld type components (which have two connect points). The number of connect points must be correct for these types of components. Incorrect values will cause incorrect entries in the bill-of-material and/or cut pipe report.

13.5 Tapped Component Name __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The tapped component name is used in special situations. When it is used, the ISOGEN symbol key is taken from this field, rather than the ISOGEN symbol key field.

13.5.1 Tapped elbows __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ An elbow is one of the components that ISOGEN considers special. Because it is special, you may not redefine it to add tap points as you can with most other symbols. This results in the need for special handling of tapped elbows. Symbol keys exist for elbows that have a single tap (see Appendix B). For an elbow that is tapped in the model, the symbol key that is passed to ISOGEN is taken from the tapped component name field of the table. Since there are no symbol keys for elbows with more than one tap, you will not be able to extract a doubly tapped elbow.

13 - 4

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

13.5.2 Olets attached to fittings __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Normally, olet type components are used as branch or tee-type components. However, sometimes an olet is attached to a fitting such as a reducer. ISOGEN does not allow the normal olet type fittings to be used in this case and so you must match an olet attached to a component to a different symbol (you must use one of the coupling components). In this situation, connect point 1 of the olet will be attached to a tap. Whenever an olet is found to be connected to a tap, then the symbol key that is passed to ISOGEN is taken from the tapped component name field (rather than the ISOGEN symbol name field).

13.6 Tapped component record number __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The tapped component record number corresponds to the tapped component name just as the ISOGEN record number corresponds to the ISOGEN symbol name. For a tapped elbow, the record number changes from 35 to 70. For the olet attached to a component, the record number changes from 40 to 126. Example 1: Show the required ISOGEN table entries needed to map socket weld GAT valves to the ISOGEN symbol VTSW, flanged GAT valves with the operator OP_100 to the symbol VTFL and all other GAT valves to the symbol VV**.

1 400

199 429

The table entries must be defined in the same order as shown above.

13.7 PDS Valve Operator Name __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The PDS valve operator name is an optional table input. This input is used when it is defined in the model and when it is defined in this table. When a component has a valve operator, the valve operator name from the model is compared to the valve operator name in the table (if it is defined). If they are the same, the table entry is checked further. If they are not the same, the table entry is rejected. If the valve operator is not defined in the table, then it is not considered in the table lookup.

The PDS-to-ISOGEN Symbol Map

13 - 5

13.8 End Prep Low and End Prep High __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The end prep low and end prep high table entries define an end prep range, a range of end preparation values, which makes component end prep an optional table input. If the end prep range is defined, the component’s end prep is checked to see whether or not it falls within the range defined by end prep low and high. If it does fall within the range, a match has occurred and the table entry is accepted. If it does not, the table entry is rejected. If no range is defined, the components end prep is not considered in the table lookup.

13.9 Order of Table Entries __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Due to the manner in which the table lookup is performed, it is necessary to put the most restrictive table entries prior to the least restrictive. Entries should be in the following order in the table: 1.

Entries with PDS name, operator name and end prep range.

2.

Entries with PDS name and either valve operator name or end prep range.

3.

Entries with only PDS name and neither valve operator or end prep range.

When table entries are placed in the above order, the software can choose the proper table entry, for each case.

13 - 6

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

The Valve / Operator Table 14 - 1

14. The Valve / Operator Table

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The valve / operator table is used to map a PDS valve and valve operator to an ISOGEN symbol different from the one mapped by the valve item name alone. This enables you to take better advantage of the variety of valve symbols that are defined within ISOGEN. It also gives you more flexibility in how you map PDS symbols to user-defined ISOGEN symbols. A valve / operator table is an ASCII file created with the editor. The format of the table is as follows:

m,n ’OPER1’, ’OPER2’, . . . ’OPERm’,

’VALV1’, ’SYM11’, ’SYM12’, . . . ’SYMm1’,

’VALV2’, ’SYM12’, ’SYM22’, . . . ’SYMm2’,

... ... ...

’VALVn’, ’SYM1n’, ’SYM2n’, . . . ’SYMmn’

Where: m-

is the number of rows in the table or the number of operators.

n-

is the number of columns in the table or the number of valves.

’VALVp’-

is the pth column heading in the table where p is less than or equal to n.

’OPERq’-

is the qth row heading in the table where q is less than or equal to m.

’SYMpq’-

is the table entry corresponding to VALVp and OPERq.

Example 1: Develop an example valve / operator table.

4, 2 ’OP_3’, ’OP_5’, ’OP_9’, ’OP_11’,

’GATR’, ’VTXX’, ’VKXX’, ’VSXX’, ’VGXX’,

’GAT’, ’VVXX’, ’VDXX’, ’VNXX’, ’VPXX’

You do not need to define every table entry with a value for SYMpq. If VALVp and OPERq should not map to a new symbol, make the table entry a blank (’’).

14 - 2

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

Every entry in the table, except for m and n, must be surrounded by single quotes and separated by commas. Otherwise, an error will occur when the table is read in.

Each valve defined in the VALOPR table must still be defined in the PDS to ISOGEN symbol map. When a valve and operator map to a new symbol in the VALOPR table, the new symbol must have the same ISOGEN record number as the one defined for the valve in the PDS-to-ISOGEN symbol map. For example, you can map a PDS symbol named GLOR to an ISOGEN symbol named VVXX with an ISOGEN record number of 130. However, you can not map the GLOR with an operator symbol of OP_3 to the ISOGEN symbol CVXX, because CVXX is an instrument with an ISOGEN record number of 90.

Intergraph option 31 must be enabled in order for the VALOPR table to be accessed.

The capability provided by this table is similar to that provided through the PDS to ISOGEN symbol map. If you are mapping valves and valve operators to ISOGEN symbols, then using the VALOPR table is much more efficient than having multiple records in the PDS to ISOGEN symbol map. If, however, you are utilizing the end prep range in the symbol map, you should also use the PDS operator name which is input in the symbol map to map valves and valve operators. The reason for this is that references to the VALOPR table overlay references to the PDS to ISOGEN symbol map. That is, VALOPR table access occurs subsequent to the lookup in the PDS to ISOGEN symbol map.

Repeatability 15 - 1

15. Repeatability

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

ISOGEN’s Repeatability facility allows isometric drawings to be re-extracted. When a drawing is re-extracted, its repeating data is recalled for purposes of extracting the isometric after modifications have been made in the piping model. Repeating data includes: The Iso’s Traversal Start point - (saved to the project database) The Extracted Item’s Iso Sheet Number - (saved to the design database) The extracted Item’s Piecemark Number Repeatability can be enabled and disabled via the Schedule Batch Job form.

Repeatability - Related Information The following is a list of related elements within the ISOGEN software that may be manipulated when using the repeatability feature.

15 - 2

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

15.1 Repeatability Restrictions and Limitations __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The following is a list of restrictions, limitations and rules that must be followed to ensure success when using the repeatability facility. Since there is only one place in the piping design file for sheet and spool numbers, repeatability will only be supported for one type of isometric. Split points placed in piping will be ignored during re-extraction. Implied items are not saved in the database and have no record kept that identifies the sheet to which they apply. Therefore, implied items will always be re-extracted on the same sheet as the item which implied them. The ISOGEN software will decide if a sheet will break at a flange. All bolts and gaskets for the flange will be on the same sheet as the flange.

The repeatability facility should not be used if the design is not stable or if extensive changes are being made to a pipeline. If extensive revisions are made to a line and repeatability is used, the result may be a sheet that contains too much information to decipher. If this situation occurs, it may be necessary to disable repeatability and extract the drawing normally so that it can be repaginated. Commands that maintain the old database record are preferred during piping design after the option to use repeating isometrics has been used. Delete Component deletes the database record, and there is no way of knowing the sheet to which it belongs. This is especially true if the item prior to it is on sheet 1, and the item after it is on sheet 2. If you plan on re-extracting an isometric drawing, it must first be extracted with ISOGEN option 108 set to 1 or 2. Once set, this option will not allow pipe splits. When a line is re-extracted, items with a sheet number of 0 will be placed on the same sheet as the item just prior to it. When a line is re-extracted, items that were added before the previous traversal start point will be placed on sheet one. It will not be possible for a multi-sheet iso to contain only disconnected pipelines. For example, if sheet 1 has two notes CONT ON DRG 2, drawing 2 will connect these ends. If an entire sheet is deleted, the sheet numbering will be incorrect when re-extracting a drawing. For example, the initial extraction generates three sheets. A redesign is done and the second sheet is deleted. When this line is re-extracted, it will produce two sheets since blank sheets can not be output.

Repeatability 15 - 3

New spool numbers will not be generated when additional piping is added to the drawing. Since new spool numbers are not identified by ISOGEN, the spool number in the design database will not be updated when extracting with existing sheets.

15.2 Extraction Information in the Database __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Extraction information, depending on its classification, is written to either the project or design database.

Extraction Information in the Project Database Re-extraction information saved to the project database includes the original start traversal point, section number, entity, component occurrence and segment occurrence numbers. The project database table pdtable_189 contains re-extraction information. The following is the format for the table, pdtable_189.

# Isometric Drawing Re-Extraction Data table number = 189 , number of columns = 8 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

, , , , , , , ,

drawing_indx_no , integer section_no , short start_traversal_X , integer start_traversal_Y , integer start_traversal_Z , integer start_entity , short start_comp_occ, integer start_seg_occ , integer

Extraction Information in the Design Database When the repeatability is used and the option Save Sheet Extraction Data has been set, existing columns in the design database will be updated in tables 34, 50, 67, and 80. These columns include:

iso_dwg_index_no , integer isometric_sheet_no , character(2) piece_mark_no , character(10)

Where: iso_drawing_index_no isometric_sheet_number

will be the number in table 185 column 1 of the project database. will be the number of the sheet on which the item appears.

15 - 4

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

piece_mark_no

will be the number of the spool on which the item appears.

When a component belongs to a spool that starts on a different sheet, the piece_mark_no value is reported as a three digit number in the format: xyy. Where x is the iso sheet number on which the spool starts and yy is the component’s spool number (on the x sheet). Only shop items can receive piece mark numbers. All field items are assigned a piece_mark_no of 0.

15.3 Determining the Traversal Start Point __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ When using the repeatability function, the ISOGEN software will determine the traversal start point for the extraction. In order of highest priority, the following is a list of rules for determining a traversal point. 1.

Compare the start_entity and start_comp_occ with each item that has been determined to be an end point. If a match occurs, use this as the start point. — End point marked as -1, or -2 for a cap, is a valid start point. — End points marked as -3 for pipe support are not considered as a valid start point. Refer to Section 4: Design File Data Sorted by Topo, page 6 - 15 for more information.

2.

The original start component is not an endpoint. Compare the start_seg_occ with each item that has been determined to be an end point. — If one end matches, use this end point as start point. — If two ends match, pick the end that is the closest to the last traversal start point.

3.

The original start component and segment occurrence are not considered endpoints. The last start point component exists, but it is no longer an end point. Choose the end point that is closest to the original start component. Intergraph option switch 68 can be used to stop the extraction process if the original start item can not be used. The ISOGEN software will generate informational-type messages that show the decision process that lead to selecting a traversal start point.

15.4 Determining Sheet Split Points __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ A sheet split location is determined by comparing the current isometric_sheet_no (sheet number) with the previous item sheet number (excluding sheet 0). Split point location is saved and output after the .idf file has completed and all split locations have been determined.

Repeatability 15 - 5

Sheet split locations will be determined using the following rules: Sheet numbers that are 0 will not be considered for sheet split records. Unless otherwise stated, they will not be considered as a sheet change. When a component is processed and that component has a sheet number different from previously processed components, a sheet split record is created. Until a new sheet number is read, all processed components will be output to that sheet. An informational-type message will be output if the previous item’s sheet number was set to 0 and the current sheet number is a new sheet. This reminds you to verify that all items were put on the correct sheet. The message will include the occurrence number of the item with sheet set to 0. A message to be used by the piping software is output in the MTO format. Error and Warning messages concerning sheet splits are output to the end of idf generation.

Correcting Incorrect Splits If an item has a 0 in the isometric_sheet_no column of the database, it is treated as either an additional item or the previous item was deleted and replaced with a new item. In this situation, a general rule has been established: Items whose sheet number is set to 0 will be output on the previous item’s sheet. Such that, when a starting item has its sheet number set to zero, the item would appear on sheet number 1. If necessary, this situation can be corrected by setting the isometric_sheet_no of the appropriate item to the correct sheet number in the design database. If more than one item in a series of items have sheet numbers set to 0, find the item that should start the new sheet and change the isometric_sheet_no to the correct number.

15.5 Determining Spool Split Points __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Like sheet split points, a spool split location is identified by comparing current piece_mark_no (spool number) with previous item’s spool number (excluding spool number 0). Location of the split between spools will be saved and output after the .idf file has been generated and all split locations have been determined. Items with spool number 0 will be placed on the current spool being processed. The spool split locations are determined using the following rules: Sheet numbers that are 0 are not considered for sheet split records. Unless otherwise stated, they are not considered as a sheet change. When a component is processed and has a sheet number different from previously processed components, a sheet split record is created. Until a new sheet number is read, all components processed will be output to that sheet.

15 - 6

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

An informational-type message will be output if the previous item’s spool number was set to Blank and the current spool number is a new spool. This reminds you to verify that all items were put on the correct spool. The message will include the occurrence number of the item with spool set to 0. A message to be used by the piping software is output in the MTO format.

16.2 User-defined Weld Symbols __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The following is a list of guidelines that must be followed when creating a new weld symbol. Mitre welds can not be redefined. All other weld symbols can be user-created. New weld symbols can be generated just as any other user-defined symbol with the Isometric Symbol Editor, located under the Utilities option. Refer to Entering the Iso Symbol Editor Environment, page 5 - 72 for more information.

16.3 Codelist Values for Standard Note 180 and 1100 __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ When the ISOGEN software is used to segregate offshore welds and identify mitre welds, standard note tables 180 and 1100 should be revised to accommodate this functionality. Changes to these tables will allow you to define which items will be in the offshore category of the bill of materials. Making revisions to standard notes 180 and 1100 will also allow different graphics symbologies of weld connections (offshore, mitre.). For more information, see Weld Types and Mapping, page 16 - 3 .

16.4 Weld Types and Mapping __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ To define a weld type (shop, field, offshore) and weld symbology, revise the options file table USER_DEFINED_WELDS. This allows you to create a weld symbol and identify those weld-type codelist numbers (CL 1000) that will have a different weld symbol on the isometric drawing. It is also possible to map the weld symbol (existing or user-defined) to the appropriate weld-type codelist number by revising the USER_DEFINED_WELDS section. For more information, see USER_DEFINED_WELDS, page 7 - 45 . When the USER_DEFINED_WELDS section is not added to the options file: Shop welds (WW SKEY) and field fit welds (WF SKEY) are the only available types of welds.

16 - 4

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

Shop welds are given fabrication codelist value numbers 11 through 20 inclusive. No Weld is given fabrication codelist value 1. Field fit welds are given all other fabrication codelist value numbers with the exception of 1, and 11 through 20.

16.5 Offshore Fabrication Category __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The ISOGEN software offers and optional feature for segregating offshore fabrication category in the bill of materials. The OFFSHORE_FABCAT_CODE_LIST_VALUES section in the options file is used in the same way as the Shop FABCAT section. For more information, see OFFSHORE_FABCAT_CODE_LIST_VALUES, page 7 - 80 . If the codelist number is not listed in the option file sections for SHOP_FABCAT_CODE_LIST_VALUES or OFFSHORE_FABCAT_CODE_LIST_VALUES the item will default to field.

16.6 Unique Weld Numbering __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The ISOGEN software has the ability to display unique weld numbers from the piping database and display them on the isometric drawing. Since a PDS-generated weld number is eight characters long, the weld number is an arrowed message. If an enclosure is chosen for weld numbering (see ISOGEN option 75), it must be one of the following: diamond ended box round ended box rectangular box If an enclosure is not chosen, the default will generate a normal arrowed message with no box that points to the weld.

16.7 User-defined Weld Prefix __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The ISOGEN software allows the addition of weld prefix when using weld numbering. A weld prefix may be used: As a prefix to the actual weld number on the isometric in a box. The box shape to be set in Isogen option 75.

16.8 The Weld Summary Report __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ A printed weld summary report is generated by setting Intergraph option 69. A new file name in the FILES Table (refer to The Files Table, page 7 - 42 ) of the options file is required if a user-defined format of the weld summary report is to be used. The designated file can be used for both the weld summary on the isometric drawing and the printed weld summary file. This optional file is referred to as the Weld Definition File (WDF) and is the twelfth entry in the FILES Table of the options file. The WDF file allows you to specify, within certain limits, the style and content of: The headings and data content of an alternative weld box to the normal weld box that is generated using ISOGEN option switch 53. Any alternative box’s output on the isometric in the same position as the normal weld box will be located in the bottom right corner of the isometric drawing area. The headings and data content of the weld summary report. If the Intergraph option to generate a weld summary report is set to 1 and the WDF file name is undefined, a Warning Error will be issued and the weld summary report will not be created. The report file name will be isoname.wXX where XX is the revision number.

16.8.1 Weld Definition File Format __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The Weld Definition File (WDF) allows the user to: Define the format of an alternative weld box displayed on the isometric drawing Define a backing sheet on the drawing frame Define the format of the Weld Summary Report As a general rule, all heading and title formatting must be positioned in the file exactly as it is positioned on the printed output. Title elements, other than unique identifiers, can be used with any format. Data item identifiers will be enclosed in single quotation marks. Unique identifiers will be used to determine what is defined and must match exactly. These identifiers include:

19.1 Center of Gravity Calculation __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Before Calculating the Iso Center of Gravity 1.

Generate an ISAM center of gravity weight library. From Windows File Manager or the DOS prompt, run the ˜\pdiso\bin\bldwtlib.exe executable to generate or update an ISAM weight library. Once initialized, bldwtlib prompts you to input an ASCII weight library neutral file. The default, weight_lib.neu, is located in the ˜\pdiso\examples directory and contains entry definitions and example data that can be referenced to make a custom weight library neutral file. After a weight library neutral file is defined, you are prompted to enter a name or use the default name, cog_weight.l, for the resulting ISAM weight library. By default, the file is written to the examples directory.

2.

Set Intergraph option 63 to 1.

3.

Edit the ISOGEN options file. — Define the name of the ISAM center of gravity library under the ninth entry of the FILES category. This is the library that will be used to make center of gravity calculations. For example, ’˜\pdiso\examples\cog_weight.l’

!COG WEIGHT LIBRARY

— Define the center of gravity entry in the MTO record map, which is the fifth entry of the FILES category. For example, ’˜\pdiso\examples\cogmto.tbl’

!MTO RECORD MAP

If the Debug switch on the Submit Batch Job form is set to on, a center of gravity report file, .cog, is written to the output directory. If the Verify on the Submit Batch Job form is set to on, additional Intergraph information about each component is added to the center of gravity report file. In the STIB data file (used to place drawing title block text), center of gravity x, y and z coordinates are assigned as node numbers 908, 909 and 910 respectively.

20. Isometric Presentation

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

ISOGEN’s Presentations feature allows you to customize the presentation of a generated isometric drawing. ISOMETRIC-DEFINITION is the identifier used when defining information for Isometric Presentations. When using the user-defined formats, it is your responsibility to ensure (by doing trial runs) that the specified options are practical and produce the required isometric presentation before committing to project use.

The drawing definition file (DDF) contains user-defined requirements that determine the final plotted isometric presentation. The DDF file is the eleventh entry in the FILES section of the options file. In addition to containing isometric presentation information, the DDF also contains Detail Sketch definition data (DETAIL-SKETCH). Subsection identifiers for user-defined presentation features include: PIPELINE-ATTRIBUTES PIPELINE-ATTRIBUTES-SPECIAL PIPELINE-ATTRIBUTES-DOTTED BEND/ELBOW-REPRESENTATION FITTINGS-GENERAL FITTINGS-SPECIAL FITTINGS-UNDIMENSIONED-BRANCHES MISC-ITEMS LAYER-NAMES An example data definition file is located at the end of this section.

20 - 2

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

The DDF uses the following conventions: Must be an ascii character file. All identifiers (Main and Sub-section) plus all data attributes must start in position one on a new line. No spaces are allowed in any identifier or attribute name. Use of any of the subsection identifiers is optional. Program defaults will be used as required.

Guidelines for Defining PIPELINE-ATTRIBUTES Input: Any number of Spaces are allowed between the attribute identifier and data items. All lines must start in position one. Allow space for a maximum of five N.S. RANGE records. Use of LAYER is optional. If LAYER is not set, the ISOGEN default LAYER set will be used. An * is allowed in last maximum bore position to signal that there is no maximum bore limit.

20 - 4

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

THICKNESS data 1 attribute is used to define required line weight in plotfile output. THICKNESS data 2 is used by the ISOPLOT module of ISOGEN when positioning Messages along the pipeline.

20.2 PIPELINE-ATTRIBUTES-SPECIAL __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The PIPELINE-ATTRIBUTES-SPECIAL section of the DDF is used in the same way as the PIPELINE-ATTRIBUTES feature except that the attributes set only apply to pipeline sections designated Special Status. Special Status is recognized when attribute status is set to DOTTED or NOMTO.

20.3 PIPELINE-ATTRIBUTES-DOTTED __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The PIPELINE-ATTRIBUTES-DOTTED section of the DDF allows you to define thickness and layer attributes for the following three categories of dotted representation. Dotted Special Status (SPECIAL-STATUS; such as Dotted, NO-MTO Items) Dotted Pipeline Continuations (PIPELINE-CONTINUATION) Dotted items at isometric Split Points (DRAWING-SPLIT-POINTS) Example PIPELINE-ATTRIBUTES-DOTTED Input: PIPELINE-ATTRIBUTES-DOTTED SPECIAL-STATUS THICKNESS PIPELINE-CONTINUATION THICKNESS DRAWING-SPLIT-POINTS THICKNESS

LAYER LAYER LAYER

15 16 17

Guidelines for Defining PIPELINE-ATTRIBUTES-DOTTED Input: The SPECIAL-STATUS, PIPELINE-CONTINUATION or DRAWING-SPLIT-POINT identifiers may be included in any order following the main section identifier. Use the THICKNESS and LAYER data as described for PIPELINE-ATTRIBUTES. N.S.RANGE or Bore Units are not allowed in this section. Dotted representation is the same for all bores. If a PIPELINE-ATTRIBUTES-SPECIAL section is included in the file, any setting for SPECIAL-STATUS found in this section will be ignored. Use of LAYER is optional. If LAYER is not set, the ISOGEN default LAYER setting will be used.

Isometric Presentation 20 - 5

Care should be taken when specifying the THICKNESS data for any of these Dotted categories. All three categories can involve the plotting of Dotted Fittings that may look unacceptable if thickness for Dotted representation is too thick.

20.4 BEND/ELBOW-REPRESENTATION __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The BEND/ELBOW-REPRESENTATION section of the DDF allows you to define Elbows and Bends to be either Round or Square when displayed on the isometric drawing. Example BEND/ELBOW-REPRESENTATION Input: BEND/ELBOW-REPRESENTATION BEND data ELBOW data

Where: data

can be set to either SQUARE or ROUND If no setting is defined, ROUND is used as the default.

20.5 FITTINGS-GENERAL __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The FITTINGS-GENERAL section of the DDF allows you to define attributes for all Fittings. These attributes include: N.S. (Bore Units) N.S. Range Plotted Fitting (Component) Thickness Layer (Level) number Fitting Scale (Plotted size of fittings) (to be applied to standard ISOGEN symbols) Attribute/Data Identifiers Include: Bore Units

20.6 FITTINGS-SPECIAL __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This FITTINGS-SPECIAL section of the DDF allows you to define Thickness, Layer or Scale attributes for specific types of components. The settings presented in this section will override the Fittings-General settings for the selected types of components. Definable Attributes Include: THICKNESS LAYER SCALE

Data requirements for the previous attributes are the same as the data requirements for FITTINGS-GENERAL. Any of the previous attributes can be set for a specific type of component. But, if FITTINGSSPECIAL attributes are not defined, ISOGEN defaults to the FITTINGS-GENERAL. For example: If LAYER 40 was the only special attribute set for INSTRUMENTS, it would be used for all INSTRUMENTS (all bores), but any Thickness and / or Scale attributes would be used from the FITTINGS-GENERAL section. Whenever a Scale attribute is set in this section, the Scale factor will not be used as a direct scale to the standard symbol. It will instead be used as a Multiplier to any Scale set in the FITTINGS-GENERAL section. For example: Scale 150 set in Fittings-General Scale 75 set in Fittings-Special Scale to be used on nominal Fitting type is 150 x 0.75 = 113 (to nearest whole number).

20.7 FITTINGS-UNDIMENSIONED-BRANCHES __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The FITTINGS-UNDIMENSIONED-BRANCHES of the DDF section allows you to vary the Thickness, Layer and Scale of any component that is included in any Undimensioned Branch. Attributes/Data identifiers are the same as the attributes/data identifiers for FITTINGSGENERAL. Example FITTINGS-UNDIMENSIONED-BRANCHES Input: FITTINGS-UNDIMENSIONED-BRANCHES N.S. INCH N.S.RANGE 0 1 THICKNESS 1 1.0 N.S.RANGE 1.5 2 THICKNESS 2 1.5

Isometric Types 21 - 1

21. Isometric Types

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Isometric Type definitions allow more flexibility with the line name definition. By using Types feature, you can track drawing records more accurately and efficiently. Isometric Types also allow you to store the same line name multiple times in the database, each time as a different Type. For example, line ABC can be stored twice, once as Fabrication Type and once as Spool Type. The Type attribute creates a unique database entry. Isometric Types and Code List 1900 Isometric Types are supported by Code List 1900. Code List 1900, as delivered, contains 3 types. These types include: Fabrication Spool Stress The following is an example of Code List 1900. C1900 ; 1900, Iso Type ; NOTE: In editing this codelist set, do not change the meaning ; of existing codelist values. Some data displays require that only ; values to the left of the "=" sign be shown; other reports require ; that only values to the right of the "=" sign be displayed. 1 = ’Fabrication’ (Default Setting) 2 = ’Spool’ 3 = ’Stress’

You can add more options, if needed, to Code List 1900. For an example of setting isometric types, refer to Bulk Load Lines, page 5 - 57 . The Isometric Type is a new column in pdtable_185 of the Project Database. All records MUST have an Isometric Type, or they will not extract. Batch Input files contain Type information when they are created on ISOGEN software version 5.0 or later. Batch Input files created prior to 5.0 will extract, but a error message will be output that states that the batch input file is out of date, and needs to be replaced.

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

A.1 Intergraph Interface to ISOGEN __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The messages that are issued by the Intergraph interface to ISOGEN are, for the most part, recorded in an error message file that is created along with the intermediate data file (the input file to ISOGEN) when errors occur. If no errors occur, then an error file is not created. Some messages generated in the file are not written to the screen as they only contain additional data on a reported error. There are three categories of messages issued by the software: Information - An error occurred that can result in other errors later on. Warning - An error occurred that can result in a problem on the drawing. The drawing should be checked. Error - An error occurred that is serious enough to cause extraction to abort. The drawing is not produced.

Appendix A: Warning and Error Messages A - 5

A.1.1 Information Messages __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ I1 - The Graphic Commodity Library does not exist or an error occurred when it was opened. This message indicates a problem with the graphic commodity library. Make sure that it is properly attached to the primary (the first) model design file. If there is doubt then you should enter the file in graphics and try to place any component. Iso extraction requires read access to the file. I3 - Error opening Material Descriptions Library. This message indicates a problem with the material description library. The proper file should be attached to the primary (first) model file via the RDB software. Iso extraction requires read access to the file. I4 - Error opening Specialty Material Descriptions Library. This message is the same as I3 except that it pertains to the piping specialty and instrument material descriptions library. Note that if this library is not successfully opened then specialty items will NOT receive material descriptions in the iso bill-ofmaterial. If the file exists and is properly attached make sure that your process has read access to it. I5 - Error accessing the Label Descriptions Library. The label description library should be properly attached to the primary (first) model file via the RDB software. If this has been done, then a quick test using the drawing annotation commands might uncover the problem. Make sure that your process has read access to the file. I6 -Note file not defined I8 - Unrecognized key read from MTO Neutral File record map. This message occurs when the software encounters an unexpected record in the neutral file map. Usually, this indicated that the number of table entries to follow (the number following each keyword) is incorrect. I9 - Unrecognized key read from options file. This message occurs when the software encounters an unexpected record in the options file. All keywords are followed by a number that indicates the number of records to follow until the next keyword. If this number is incorrect then this message will result.

A-6

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

I10 - An error occurred while reading the PDS to ISOGEN symbol map. Some difficulty occurred while the PDS-to-ISOGEN symbol map file was being read in. Check the symbol map file that is defined in the options file for mistakes. I11 - Error reading in complete PDS to ISOGEN symbol map. The internal buffer used for holding the PDS to ISOGEN map has been filled by entries from the map file and some have thus been ignored. Contact Intergraph with this problem. I13 - Physical data library not read. This message indicates that the physical data library for the current component could not be read by the mto software for generating bolts and gaskets. If bolt/gasket generation has failed on the current component then this message indicates that the most likely reason is that an error occurred while trying to read the physical data library. If no bolts/ gasket generation failure occurred then the message might be ignored. I14 - Unrecognized key read from title block tables file This message indicates that an unexpected record was encountered in the title block tables file. It will usually indicate that the number of entries to follow value (on a record following a keyword) is incorrect. I16 - Intergraph option 34 reset to zero Intergraph option 34 applies only to batch extraction. When interactive extraction is run, this option is ignored. I17 - Intergraph option 16 reset to 0 I18 - Check number of lines entry in the options file. I19 - Error accessing specialty material descriptions library I20 - Error accessing the specified material description library I21 - Error accessing the specified label description library I22 - Error opening the label description library

Appendix A: Warning and Error Messages A - 7

I23 - The last start point is chosen to be the traversal start point Table: 3 Component Occ: 4195082 Segment Occ: 4194661 I24 - Alternate index is used to read material description library. The material description is not found with the default primary key, item code. The alternate index, defined in the ALTERNATE_DESCRIPTION_INDEX table in the option file, is used to find the material description. I25 - No existing sheet and no last start point for section 1 Iso extraction will continue as the first time

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

A.1.2 Warning Messages __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ W1 - Error computing valve oper or reducer orientation. An error occurred in the calculations to orient a valve operator or an eccentric reducer. In both cases the connect point orientations should be checked in graphics to confirm that they are correct. W2 - Segment column is undefined. In checking for an attribute change at a segment endpoint the attribute being checked has gone from being defined with a value to being undefined (blank). The attributes defined in the PIPELINE_HEADER table in the options file should be checked and defined with a value as needed. W3 - Error forming label from label library. An error has occurred in creating a note or label using the label description library. The label (whose label number is also printed in the message) should be checked using the label description library software. W4 - Invalid LINE ID format - LINE ID ignored. A line ID that is either incorrect in format or contains invalid data has been input. Check the format of the line ID against the definition in the options file. Remember that each attribute that is part of the line ID must be separated from the others by a dash ( - ). An example of invalid data in the line ID might be a fluid code that does not exist in the fluid code codelist. W5 - Error reading in extraction criteria. An error has occurred reading in the line identification inputs from the input file. This might indicate a problem in the software that creates the input file. W6 - Model design file not found. This message indicates that the model design file read in from the input file either does not exist or that your process does not have read access to it. W7 - Error reading the Label Description Library. This message probably indicates that the label definition for a specific label does not exist in the label description library opened by the software. Make sure that the primary (first) model design file has the proper library attached or that the proper library is defined in the options file.

Appendix A: Warning and Error Messages A - 9

W8 - ISOGEN key is undefined in PDS - ISOGEN map. This message indicates that an entry in the PDS to ISOGEN symbol map exists for the PDS component but that the ISOGEN symbol name in the table does not. Make sure that the table contains the ISOGEN symbol name for the component in question. W9 - Could not locate item in PDS to ISOGEN symbol map. This message indicates that the PDS symbol in question could not be located in the PDS to ISOGEN symbol map. W10 - No-mto attribute has illegal value. The no-mto attribute on a component, pipe, or instrument has a value other than 0 or 1. Set the attribute to a legal value. W11 - Error forming nozzle note. An error has occurred forming the nozzle connection note generated at equipment nozzles. Check the label description library labels in the library if you are using the NOZZLE_NOTE table in the options file. Also review the nozzle entity to make sure that everything looks fine. If the failure occurs with the default nozzle note then report the problem to Intergraph. W12 - The coordinate system option is invalid. Coordinate system is set to PLANT. The coordinate system defined in the options file is incorrect so it was set to a default value. Check the option specified in the options file. W13 - Material description has been truncated. The material description generated from the material description library and the label description library has exceeded the maximum size allowed for in the software and was truncated. Contact Intergraph. W14 - Error reading Specialty Material Description Library. An error occurred retrieving the material description for a piping specialty, instrument or support from the specialty description library. An error message is generated in the iso bill-of-material. W15 - Error reading the Material Description Library. An error occurred retrieving the material description for a commodity item. An error message is generated in the iso bill-of- material.

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

W16 - Error attaching the design file . W17 - Error accessing A/N Commodity Library. An error has occurred searching the alphanumeric commodity library either for an implied material item or for a size dependent commodity code. Check the library to see whether or not the item that is being searched on exists. W20 - Header record attribute is undefined. Each entry in the PIPELINE_HEADER table in the options file defines a "Header record" for ISOGEN. These header records simply define the initial value for certain attributes at the start of the line (that is, spec name, insulation type, and so on). This message is warning you that for some header record defined in the PIPELINE_HEADER table the value for it from the database is undefined. You must either define the attribute in the database or remove the header record entry from the table. W23 - An error occurred while generating implied materials. Bolts, a gasket, or a weld will NOT be generated in the drawing and/or the mto neutral file. Some error resulted in no implied materials. Check the error message file for details of the problem. W25 - Error loading spec attributes for implied component. An error has occurred while attempting to overlay attributes from the spec for a stub onto the database record for a lap-joint flange. This overlaying must be performed just prior to generation of the material description so that attributes embedded in the material description for the stub can be generated properly. Make sure that the spec contains a valid entry for the stub. The spec search is performed by using the same data as for the lap joint flange except that the option code is set to the flange option code plus 5000. W26 - Maximum number of implied items exceeded. A component generates too many implied items from the Material Description Library and an internal buffer has overflowed. Contact Intergraph to have the buffer size increased. W27 - The Material Description Library is required in order to generate implied materials. Some materials might be missing from the MTO neutral file. A component indicates that implied material should be generated from the Material Description Library but the library is either not attached to the model or the library that is attached does not exist.

Appendix A: Warning and Error Messages A - 11

W28 - Error accessing the Material Description Library for implied materials. A component indicates that implied material should be generated from the Material Description Library but none was found. Check to make sure that the library contents are correct. W29 - Title block tables file not found. The title block tables file identified in the FILES section of the options file does not exist. This file identifies those attributes that are to be placed in the drawing title block. When this file does not exist no text can be placed in the title block. W30 - Error opening title block tables file. This message indicates that the title block tables file exists, but that for some reason it could not be opened. Check that your process has proper VMS access to the file. W31 - Error opening segment data file. File will not be created. The file holding title block attributes generated from the SEGMENT_DATA_TABLE (in the title block tables file) could not be opened. No title block data will be generated. W32 - Error opening STIB input file. File will not be created. The file holding title block attributes generated from the DRAWING_DATA_TABLE (in the title block tables file) could not be opened. No attributes generated by this table will appear in the title block. W33 - Error opening sheet specific title block data file. The file holding title block attributes generated from the SHEET_DATA_TABLE (in the title block tables file) could not be opened. No attributes generated by this table will appear in the title block. W34 - Error opening MTO Neutral File - file will not be created. A UNIX error occurred when creating a new mto neutral file. Make sure that your process has write access to the default directory. W35 - MTO record map not found. The mto record map, specified in the options file, cannot be located. Check the file spec in the options file and make sure that your process has read access to the file.

PDS ISOGEN Reference Guide - August 1999

E29 - Error reading size of valve/operator table. The first entry in the valve / valve operator table is a record that contains the number of rows and columns in the table. An error has occurred while attempting to read these values. Check that the format of the table is correct. E30 - Valve/operator table is too large. The valve / valve operator table is larger than the maximum currently allowed by the software. Reduce the table size and contact Intergraph to get the maximum size increased. E31 - Error reading valve/operator table values. An error has occurred while reading the body of the valve / valve operator table. This usually indicates that the table sizes defined in the first record of the file are incorrect. E32 - Error initializing the piping design database E33 - No components were found that match the database search criteria. Either the line name substrings or line ID’s that were specified in the input do not identify any lines that exist in the input model files. Check the inputs to make sure that they are correct and agree with the line name or attributes that make up the line id. E34 - Invalid node or path for iso design file E35 - Internal error generating material pointer. An internal software error has occurred in generating a material pointer for an olet type component. If the software were allowed to continue the bill-of-material would be generated incorrectly. Contact Intergraph if you receive this error. E36 - Internal error generating material pointer for downstream component. This error is the same as error number E35. E37 - Transformed coordinate exceeds the maximum. This error is caused from a coordinate that is too large to pass to ISOGEN. All coordinates are transformed to the output coordinate system (as controlled by the Intergraph options block) and then converted to 1/100’s of millimeters for ISOGEN. This value must fit within a 4 byte integer. This limitation results in a maximum coordinate value of 21,474 meters, or 70,450 feet or approximately 13.3 miles.

Appendix A: Warning and Error Messages A - 19

E38 - Internal error generating component item code. An error occurred while generating the item code for a stub (from a lap joint flange). Contact Intergraph if you get this error message. E39 - Error accessing spec for implied item. An occurred while attempting to read the spec database entry for a stub. Check that the entry exists in the database. The stub spec entry should have the same lookup parameters as the flange except that the option code should be the flange option code plus 5000. E41 - Error title block tables file E42 - Error opening project database E43 - Error reading database record E44 - Error reading database record E45 - Line is composed of multiple disconnected sections. This error results from trying to extract a pipeline that is either incomplete or incorrect and exists in the model in multiple unconnected pieces. It is not enough for all the segments to be connected. There must be components on top of the segments that are connected. E46 - Line does not contain a valid traversal start-point. This error occurs when the ISOGEN interface finds it impossible to obey ISOGEN rules for traversal of the pipeline network. The only work-around is to split the pipeline into two smaller sections and then extract the sections individually. E47 - Number of sections does not match specified value. For pipelines that are intentionally disconnected (for example, the line leaves the piping area, goes into the rack and then re-enters the area somewhere else) then you must specify the number of disconnected sections for the line in the Batch Data File. When the number of sections you specify does not match the number encountered in the model, this error occurs. Check the model to determine whether the Batch Data File or the model is incorrect. E48 - Invalid section number. Invalid inputs have been passed to the ISOGEN interface for multi-section pipelines in pdsidf.dat. Report this error to Intergraph.

A.2 ISOGEN __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The error messages issued by ISOGEN (through IZOD2) are directed to two places. Errors issued by ISOGEN proper are directed to the ISOGEN message file. This file is either named in the options file or has the same name as the output iso file name with an extension of .msg. Errors generated by the Intergraph design file interface are directed to a file named IZOD2.ERR. When IZOD2 is run through the delivered command procedures then IZOD2.ERR is appended to any error message file created by the ISOGEN interface - pdsidf.

A.2.1 ISOGEN message file errors __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ (35:2003) - WELD NUMBERS HAVE CAUSED DATA OVERFLOW An internal buffer for weld data has overflowed. Try a manual split of the pipeline into more sections. (35:2004) - INPUT DATA OVERFLOW The pipeline is too big. It must be extracted in smaller sections. (35:2005) - TEE OFF TEE GREATER THAN 20 DEEP This message indicates that the piping network being extracted contains branches which are too deeply nested for ISOGEN to handle. A branch off from the pipeline header is level 1. A branch off from the level 1 branch is level 2. A branch off from a level 2 branch is a level 3 branch. The maximum level branch that ISOGEN can handle is a level 20 branch. (35:2007) - TEE IN SKEW ISOGEN has detected an internal inconsistency. Check the resulting drawing. (35:2008) - DATA FAULT SKEW Same as 35:2007 (35:2009) - SKEW WITH NO CONTENTS Same as 35:2007

Appendix A: Warning and Error Messages A - 23

(35:2010) - FITTING WITH OFFSET NOT IN LINE WITH PIPE The offset of a fitting is not in line with an adjacent item. This is possibly a program or input data error. Check the resulting drawing. (35:2011) - ANGLE FAIL Unacceptable pipeline direction detected. This is possibly a program or input data error. Check the resulting drawing. (35:2012) - DATA FAULT ISOGEN detected a problem in some internal data. This is possibly a program or input data error. Check the resulting drawing. (35:2012) - DATA FAULT, DOUBLEBACK PIPE Occasionally, doubleback pipe errors can be erroneously generated. This occurs when the extracted pipeline and the grid line or structural column are located in the same place. In this case, there will be one dimension to the structural element and the FAIL message will appear on the face of the iso. This can occur regardless if the isometric extracts with no other errors. In the following graphic, pipeline and Grid Line 3 are coincident with one another. This is interpreted by the ISOGEN software as a pipeline that doubles back on itself which results in the FAIL message on the isometric drawing.

If the reference point on the pipe resides in the same plane as the structural component or grid line, a FAIL message will appear on the isometric and the .err file will report a doubleback pipe error. This error is a result of the manner in which the ISOGEN software interprets the .idf file and should be ignored.

Make sure that your MTO record map maps component occurrence numbers into the neutral file. 115 - Error Generating Title Block Text An error has occurred while attempting to determine which segment attributes should be placed in the title block of each isometric sheet. Make sure that you have properly set your Title Block Table File. Contact Intergraph for help if you cannot solve the problem. 120 - Iso Sheets File Not Found or Unreadable An error occurred when the batch command procedure tried to open the file that contains the number of isometric sheets generated by ISOGEN. This error indicates an Intergraph software problem. 121 - Error Reading Iso Sheets File An error occurred while trying to read the number of iso sheets from a file produced by ISOGEN. This error indicates an Intergraph software problem. 122 - Error Updating Number Of Sheets Error updating number of sheets An error occurred while updating the number of drawing sheets for a multi-section pipeline. Refer to the batch (DCL) log file to determine the cause of the problem. 123 - Error Opening STIB Input File An error occurred while trying to create an input file for STIB. This error probably indicates an Intergraph software error. 124 - Error Filling Out Title Block By STIB An error has occurred while STIB was attempting to fill out the drawing title block. Make sure that your seed iso design file has plenty of space for both the drawing graphics and the text that is inserted by STIB. Also make sure that the disk holding the batch run directory has plenty of contiguous space. STIB creates a 500 block temporary work file that must be contiguous.

Appendix A: Warning and Error Messages A - 43

125 - Error Getting Previous Manual Details An error occurred while attempting to move manual details from a previous version of a drawing to the latest. Refer to the batch (DCL) log file to determine the cause of the problem. 130 - Plot Software Does Not Exist Could not find the Plot Software (IP_IPLOT). If the plotting software is not loaded, set the plot option to No and rerun the iso. If attempting to perform a batch process, this error could also indicate that you do not have access to the requested queue. Verify that the requested queue name is available to the processing node’s batch login. 131 - Plot Seed File Does Not Exist The isometric seed file specified in the Batch Data File does not exist. Either create the seed file or change the file specification in the Batch Data File. 132 - Error Opening Or Writing Plot Job File An error has occurred creating a command procedure to launch an IPLOT plot job. This error is probably due to an Intergraph software problem. Refer to the batch (DCL) log file to determine the cause. Error occurred while creating the Plot Meta File: Check if there is enough memory space. 133 - Error Generating Plot Meta File Error occurred while creating the Plot Meta File. Verify that the system has enough memory. 134 - Error Submitting A Job To ISO_PLOT An error occurred submitting a job to launch an IPLOT plot. Make sure that the plot queue ISO_PLOT is properly set up. 135 - Batch Submitting Error Code: 0x10000XXX An error has occurred in submitting a batch job where XXX is an error return code listed in the ˜0batch0batchapi0batchapi.h file. For example, the return code 0x10000025 is defined as BATCH_ERROR_NO_ACCOUNT_MAPPING (025) IN THE ntbatchapi.h file. In this case, you would verify that your account is mapped correctly in the Intergraph Batch Manager. If the account password has been changed and the password in Account Mapping has not been updated since the account was mapped to the valid user, the batch job will still be reported as, Batch Job Submitted Successfully. The invalid password is not be detected by NTBATCH until the batch job is started.
