  1. Select an object in the model.

  2. Click SmartPlant > View P&ID.

  3. If the active object in the model has a match (or a correlated object) in only one P&ID, then the software automatically opens the associated P&ID. If the active object does not match, or has multiple matches in more than one P&ID, then the Open P&ID File dialog box opens listing the P&IDs that contain the matching object and allowing you to specify the drawing to open.

    Use the document revision number and last revision date to select the correct document.

  4. If the Open P&ID File dialog box opens, select the P&ID you want to access from the list of all P&IDs that have been imported. The P&ID File Viewer: [drawing name] window opens and displays the drawing.

    The grid on the P&ID File Viewer: [drawing name] window states the name and description of the P&ID.

  5. When the P&ID opens in the P&ID File Viewer: [drawing name] window, use the various commands in the P&ID File Viewer to orient the drawing, select correlated objects, and specify colors.

  6. Select objects in the P&ID and use commands in the 3D software to create or edit these objects in the model.

  7. To close the P&ID File Viewer: [drawing name] window, click Close on the title bar.

  8. To open a different drawing, start the SmartPlant > View P&ID command again.

  • You can use the P&ID that the software displays in the P&ID File Viewer window as a reference when you model objects and thus create the appropriate 3D design objects.

  • Among P&ID objects that you can select are a pipe run, equipment, duct run, nozzle, duct component, piping component, and instrument component. Piping components and instrument components result in along-leg features in the 3D model. A branch point results in a branch feature in 3D, and an attribute break point results in a run change feature in 3D.

  • If there is a problem displaying a P&ID or selecting objects on the P&ID, then you can consider running a custom command for troubleshooting purposes (this command does not resolve any errors). The ProgID for this command is SP3DDisplayPIDService.VerifyPIDCmd.
