Controls parameters for adding and editing supports to the .prj or .psl file.
Specifies general information about the pipe support such as the Name and Size Range.
Specifies the name for a group of assemblies. This name displays in the CADWorx Support Modeler palette. Expanding the group name lists the assemblies under this group. From this location, you can edit the data contained in a specific assembly or a pipe support component. Specifies the name of the support.
Specifies the name of the assembly.
Specifies the sizes for the assembly. Click the Component Size Setup ellipsis to define default sizes for each Pipe Size of the support. For more information, see Component Size Setup.
Increase support size if component is insulated
Automatically selects a larger size support component based on the insulation thickness. For example, a six-inch nominal size pipe (6.625 inch actual OD) has four-inch thick insulation (14.625 inch OD). This makes the total pipe diameter 6.625 inch actual OD plus 8 inch insulation OD. The software determines the support by looking it up in the data file.
Use next larger size if exact size is not available
Specifies that if the software does not contain the exact size support in the data file with the insulation, then the software selects the next larger size support.
Displays the support components that you can use to make an assembly. After you select a type, the list box shows the available data table for that type of support.
Moves the selected item from the Components Available list to the Components Selected list.
Moves the selected item from the Components Selected list to the Components Available list.
Displays the components in the assembly. The support builds using the selected components in the order shown. After you add an assembly with a group of components, the individual pipe support components can be edited by expanding the assembly, and then selecting the component you want to edit. For more information, see Edit Pipe Support Component Pane.
Moves the selected item one position higher in the assembly sequence.
Moves the selected item one position lower in the assembly sequence.
CAESAR II Type
Specifies the restraint type of the support for use in CAESAR II pipe stress analysis.
Locates a component item in the bill of material schedule. Type the needed value. Type 0 to place the item first in the schedule. Type 999 to place the item last. If the same sort numbers are used for different components, they are placed in alphabetical order.
Specifies the bill of material type. Select Fabrication, Erection, Offshore, or Misc.
Specifies the identifier value Isogen uses for an isometric drawing. For more information, see SKEY Information in the CADWorx Plant Users Guide.
Specifies the SKEY value Isogen uses for an isometric drawing. If you do not specify an SKEY value, then CADWorx uses the default Isogen Support symbol during Isometric Drawing generation. For more information, see SKEY Information in the CADWorx Plant Users Guide.
Specifies the format of text displayed with the support.
Specifies text displayed with the support.
Specifies a CAD .dwg file containing details about the support. Select the file from the Select detail sketch file dialog box.
Describes the pipe support assembly. The bill of materials uses this description.
Specifies the abbreviated description for the pipe support assembly.
Specifies an optional tag description for the pipe support assembly.
Specifies the part number information of the pipe support assembly.
For more information, see Pipe Support Long, Short, Tag, and Part Number Format Dialog Boxes.
Specifies any notes attached to the pipe support assembly.
