Place Equipment Ribbon - Intergraph Smart 3D - Help

Intergraph Smart 3D Structure

Intergraph Smart 3D

Sets options for adding equipment to your model. This ribbon appears automatically after you select the Place Equipment command and then select an equipment object, or when you select an existing piece of equipment.

To find out the name of an option on the ribbon, pause the pointer over an option and read the ToolTip.

Equipment Properties

Edits the occurrence properties and reviews the static properties of an existing piece of equipment. Equipment properties can be edited only after the object is placed in the model.

Any object modeled in Solid Edge that has occurrence properties cannot be placed or modified unless your computer has a copy of Solid Edge installed.

User Defined Form Definition

Displays User Defined Form for the particular equipment if it is defined in the catalog. See the Equipment and Furnishings Reference Data.

Relationship List

Lists all relationships for the selected equipment and provides an option for creating a new relationship if the equipment is not already fully constrained. An equipment part is fully constrained when it has sufficient defined relationships to prevent movement or rotation of the part along all three coordinate axes.

Positioning Relationships

Displays the available options for types of positioning relationships. Some options may not be available for all equipment types. See Positioning Relationships for more information.

Delete Relationship

Removes the selected relationship from the equipment model and the database. Using the Relationships list box, select a previously existing relationship for the equipment, and click Delete Relationship. You can use this command only when modifying existing equipment.

Equipment Reference

Prompts you for the reference on the equipment to be placed that will be affected by the positioning relationship. In all cases, the part that you select in this step moves to create the relationship, and the part chosen in the Second Part Reference step remains fixed.

Second Part Reference

Prompts you for the reference on the equipment object or reference element already in the model that will be affected by the positioning relationship. After you select the reference, the software repositions the first equipment part chosen with respect to the second part selected in the definition of the relationship.


Defines the offset distance for a mate or align relationship. Offsets are disabled when establishing a connect relationship. You can adjust this value after initial equipment placement if needed.


Displays the equipment name, as dictated by your predefined name rules, and accepts changes to that name.


Specifies the system with which to associate the selected equipment. The default system is the model itself.

<Select Graphically>

Allows you to select the system from the graphic view or from the Workspace Explorer. You can then place or modify the equipment.
