If for any reason the initial scope defined for the SDx project is too limited, you can use the Smart 3D Project > Claim command to add more objects to the active scope before doing any modeling. The Claim command assigns the selected objects exclusively to the active project and ensures that no other project can modify the object.

Claiming objects ensures that any changes that you make to existing Smart Interop Objects or any new Smart 3D design objects that you add to the Change Management model are automatically within the scope of the project.

  1. Verify that you have set the active project.

  2. Select the objects to claim. For example, when you fence select a pump, you might accidentally select more than the pump object. You select the nozzles associated with the pump. You can also select the foundation under the pump, even though the foundation is not nested under the pump in the Workspace Explorer.

  3. Click Project > Claim to associate the objects with the active project.

    The software displays the Claim Status Window. The window sws the status of failed claimed objects, if any exist. You can view the claim status of all the selected objects by clicking Show All Results.

  4. To save these results, click Save to Excel to open the Save As dialog box.

  5. Navigate to the folder location in which to save the file, type a name for the file, and then click Save.

  6. Click OK in the message box, and then click Close to exit the Claim Status window.

  • You must have Write permissions to the active project to claim an object to it.

  • An object can be related to only a single project. If you attempt to claim an object that belongs to another project, the claim fails. You must use the Release Claim command to set the relationship back to the initial state, and then re-run the Claim command to claim it to the new project.

  • You can create a filter of objects by project and set a style rule, so objects belonging to a certain project are easily distinguished.

  • If errors occur when using the Claim command, refer to the Troubleshooting Reference Help.
