Displays all the editable instance-specific information about the selected designed equipment object. The property name appears on the left side of the grid and the corresponding property value appears on the right side of the grid. If more than one equipment object is selected, common occurrence properties for the selected objects appear on the tab.
When viewing properties for a single equipment object, the following properties appear. More properties may appear depending on what you defined in the reference data. For more information about occurrences defined in the reference data, see the Equipment and Furnishings Reference Data Guide, available from the Help > Printable Guides command in the software.
Because equipment properties are customizable in the equipment and furnishings reference data, only the properties that are required by the software are documented.
Display Equipment Preview
This button is disabled for designed equipment.
Select the properties to view, modify, or define. Equipment properties are divided into several different categories: Standard, Insulation and Tracing, Weight and CG, Fabrication and Construction, Surface Treatment and Coating, Position and Orientation, and Responsibility.
Specifies the name of the selected object. If the name is too long to entirely display in the box, hover the cursor over the box to display the complete name as a tool tip. If the name is not defined by a rule, User Defined displays. If this name is generated by a naming rule, Naming Rule displays. If you type a name in this box, Smart 3D automatically changes the naming rule to User Defined.
Displays the available name rules for the selected object. Specify the naming rule to use to name the object. You can select one of the listed rules, or you can select User Defined to specify a custom name in the (Name) box.
Specifies a description for the object.
Specifies the system to which the object belongs. By default, the model is the parent system for the object. If a parent system is selected when you start the command, System is automatically updated with the selected system. If multiple systems are selected when you start the command, System is automatically updated with the last used system.
Specifies the reporting requirement for the object. To change the options on the list, edit the Reporting Type select list in Catalog.
Specifies the type of reporting. To change the options on the list, edit the Reporting Type select list in Catalog.
Specifies the room number associated with the designed equipment.
Specifies whether the object has been correlated to an object in a P&ID. The list is defined by the EFWCorrelationStatus select list.
Specifies whether the object is correlated to a P&ID object. The list is defined by the EFWCorrelationBasis select list.
Correlate Object indicates that the object has a correlating object in a P&ID.
No correlation is required indicates that the object does not have a correlating object in a P&ID.
Correlation Approval Status
Specifies whether the object is approved with discrepancies in the three-dimensional data compared with design basis data. The list is defined by the EFWCorrelationApprovalStatus sheet in the AllCodelist workbook.
Topology mismatch approved indicates that the object topology mismatch can be ignored.
Data and Topology mismatches approved indicates that the object data and topology mismatches can be ignored.
None indicates that you do not approve a mismatch.
Position and Orientation
Specifies the distance of the connection point from the active coordinate system origin in the east direction.
Specifies the distance of the connection point from the active coordinate system origin in the north direction.
Specifies the distance of the connection point above or below the active coordinate system origin.
Specifies the bearing angle for the object. The Bearing angle is measured between the local x-axis of the object and the Y-axis (North) of the global coordinate system in the XY-plane. The local x-axis is the default axis of primary symmetry for all symbols in the catalog. The bearing measurement direction is clockwise from the active coordinate system North looking in the negative active coordinate system direction; that is, down from 0 to 360 degrees. You can enter negative bearing angles, but the software automatically converts them to the positive equivalents. If the pitch is set to +/- 90 degrees, then the bearing measure displays 0 degrees.
Specifies the pitch angle for the object. The Pitch angle measures between the x-axis of the object and the X-axis of the global coordinate system in the XZ-plane. This option sets the reference in the model to a line that is the intersection of the vertical plane through the X-axis of the local coordinate system and the active coordinate system horizontal plane. The angle is measured in the positive direction from the horizontal plane in the active coordinate system up direction regardless of the current bearing. Another way to describe pitch is the rotation of the object about its y-axis. Pitch angles are limited to between -90 degrees and +90 degrees, with 0 indicating horizontal.
Specifies the roll angle for the object. The Roll angle measures between the local z-axis of the object and the Z-axis of the global coordinate in the YZ-plane. Another way to describe roll is the rotation of the object about its x-axis. This option sets the reference in the model to a line that is perpendicular to the local coordinate system x-axis and in the horizontal plane. Roll angles are measured clockwise from horizontal to the y-axis of the local coordinate system. The roll angle is between 0 and 360 degrees. You can enter negative roll angles, but the software automatically converts them to the positive equivalents. If the pitch is set to +/- 90 degrees, then the reference in the model is the North axis.
