Piping Objects:

Smart 3D Object Type

PDMS Object Type

Comments

Pipeline system

Pipe

The specification attribute on the PDMS pipe object is controlled by the PipelineSpec option in the PDMSExportTranslator.ini file.

Pipe run

Branch

It is not necessary for both definitions to match exactly because a Smart 3D pipe run cannot contain components with multiple diameters, whereas the PDMS branch can. The MergeS3DRuns option in the PDMSExportTranslator.ini file combines all of the pipe runs under a Pipeline system and splits them into appropriate PDMS branches. Consequently, pipe run names in Smart 3D and branch names in PDMS differ.

Piping component

Relevant object in PDMS based on GType

The appropriate component is created based on the mapped GType of the component.

Gasket

Gasket

Gasket dimensions in PDMS should match those that are present in Smart 3D; otherwise, the isometric drawings generated from PDMS may fail.

Pipe support (logical)

Attachment

Pipe supports from Smart 3D are created as attachments which appear in the isometric drawings obtained from PDMS.

Pipe bend

Bend

Pipe bends from Smart 3D are exported as bend objects.

Underground and sanitary piping

FTUBE

Underground and sanitary piping; that is, piping that is plain-ended, is exported as FTUBE from Smart 3D. The relevant FTUBE components must be created in the PDMS catalog and mapped appropriately.

Weld

Weld

Smart 3D field fitted welds are exported as weld objects.

In addition to the piping object types listed in the above table, the required coding is written in the datal file to establish connectivity of piping with equipment nozzles and the interconnectivity between branches.

Structure Objects:

  • Linear member part

  • Curved member part

  • Section

  • Generic section

  • PNODE, PJOINT, SNODE, SJOINT are created.

HVAC Objects

Smart 3D Object Type

PDMS Object Type

Comments

Ducting system

HVAC

The specification attribute on the PDMS HVAC object is controlled by the HVACSpec option in the PDMSExportTranslator.ini file.

Generic system

HVAC

The specification attribute on the PDMS HVAC object is controlled by the HVACSpec option in the PDMSExportTranslator.ini file as there is no specification property on the Generic system in Smart 3D.

Duct run

Branch

It is not necessary for both definitions to match exactly because a Smart 3D duct run cannot contain run change components only at the ends of the run, whereas the PDMS branch can contain similar components in the middle of the branch. The MergeS3DDuctRuns option in the PDMSExportTranslator.ini file combines all of the duct runs under a Ducting system/Generic system and splits them into appropriate PDMS branches. Consequently, duct run names in Smart 3D differ from branch names in PDMS.

Duct component

Relevant object in PDMS based on GType

The appropriate component is created based on the mapped GType of the component.

Gasket

Gasket

Gasket dimensions in PDMS should match those that are present in Smart 3D. Otherwise, the isometric drawings generated from PDMS may fail.

Duct bend

Bend

Smart 3D duct bends are exported as bend objects in PDMS.

Duct support

Attachment

Smart 3D duct supports are created as attachments which appear in the isometric drawings obtained from PDMS.
