snaked pipe run

 

when running HDPE in cable trays or over long distances,

due to its thermal expansion issues (it grow & shrinks with temp change quite considerably)

it is normal to 'Snake' the pipe usually providing a snaking table giving allowance at differnet installation temperatures

currently plant cant deal with this, the extra length has to be manually calculated and noted on the iso so the material doesnt get cut too short

not so much of an issue for smaller stuff atm, as its often site run, but with the trend being to do less and less site work and more shop spooled items, this will become an issue.

In regard to creating orthos: It would be nice to be be able to create orthos from an angle within your chosen model instead of the standard 6-sided method (right, left, top, bottom, etc). Often times things are at an angle and currently the only method I have found to capture those items straight on is to open the 3D model drawing, physically rotate the model, save, go back to your ortho drawing, create the ortho section, go back to the model drawing, rotate it back to it's original orientation, save, return to your otho drawing and pray that you don't have to update that particular ortho view and go through all of that again.

 

On larger 3D models this sequence can take nearly a half hour which is NOT highly productive.

PLANT REPORT CREATOR should have a provision to select the line nos. to create a report. Presently there is no effective tool is there to filter. Filter option is not effective in this.

I would like to see the addition of "intelligent" spouting, ducting and pneumatic conveying much the same as piping.  When you refer to "plant" type operations there is far more than just piping. You need all of the above to call P3D a complete package.

Modification of ISO Annotation in 3D. Now is imposible to change the messages. It was be good idea to create any Annotation Manager in the project, or add iso annotations in Data Manager.

Don’t lock the specs when the users have Plant 3d open. There is no benefit as the user can still change the specs once they are first in. It would be better to have this controlled on the network with permissions.

The ability to add or remove Bolts and Gaskets in the model without changing the connection type.

 

You often have special cases where you need to add bolts or gaskets which are separate from the connection type. For example we have HDPE pipe which does not require gaskets for connection between HDPE and HDPE but when we connect to steel it then requires gaskets. It would be nice to have the ability to add and remove the gaskets or bolts afterwards, maybe have a dialog box with gaskets and bolts listed with check boxes rather than having to change the connection type.

Patrik

I deal with this by having a differnet end type for the poly stub flange (PFL)

so in joints

PFL - PFL = fastener only

PFL - FL = fastener + gasket

Rotate valve actuator on its own axis.


When bringing in valves with the actuator, it would be good to get the option to turn the valve actuator on its own axis. At this stage you can rotate the valve which rotates the actuator but you cannot rotate the actual actuator.


For example Butterfly and Ball valves have lever actuators which at this stage can only be shown as open or closed there is no option to rotate the actuator itself.


This was a feature in CadWorx that worked very well and was easy to setup.
