A P&ID pipe run can correlate with multiple Smart 3D pipe runs. A P&ID pipeline can correlate with multiple Smart 3D pipelines.

  1. Click SmartPlant > Retrieve to retrieve data into the software (for example, a P&ID or a Dimensional Datasheet).

  2. Click SmartPlant > Correlate with Design Basis.

  3. Select an object in the 3D model that you want to correlate. If you do not have a P&ID open, the software displays the Open P&ID dialog box.

    If you are correlating pipelines, set the filter to Pipelines; likewise, for pipe runs, set the filter to Piping Runs. This is because you cannot select pipelines in P&ID and the software uses the filter to determine what kind of piping objects you are correlating.

  4. Select the P&ID to display.

  5. In the P&ID File Viewer, select the object that you want to correlate. The software then displays the Correlate with Design Basis dialog box. If one of the following conditions exist, then a message first displays.

    1. The 3D object supports one-to-many correlation, and the P&ID object is already correlated to one or more 3D objects. The following message displays:

      Selected Design Basis object is already correlated to another 3D object. Are you sure you want to correlate more than one 3D object the same Design Basis object?

      Click Yes to continue.

      -OR-

      Click No to display the Compare Design Basis dialog box, and proceed to step 6.

      -OR-

      Click Cancel to exit and cancel the correlation.

    2. The 3D object does not support one-to-many correlation, and the corresponding P&ID object and 3D object correlation already exists. The following message is displayed:

      You are trying to correlate to the same object again.

      Click Ok to display the Compare Design Basis dialog box with the correlation objects highlighted. Proceed to step 6.

      -OR-

      Click Cancel to exit and cancel the correlation.

    3. The 3D object does not support one-to-many correlation, and the corresponding P&ID or 3D object are already correlated. The following message displays:

      You are trying to correlate to an object that is already correlated. Would you like to remove the existing correlation and correlate again?

      Click Yes to remove the existing correlation and correlate the selected objects. After the new correlation, the software displays the Compare Design Basis dialog box with the newly correlated objects highlighted. Proceed to step 6.

      -OR-

      Click No to display the Compare Design Basis dialog basis with the correlated objects. Proceed to step 6.

      -OR-

      Click Cancel to exit and cancel the correlation.

  6. Review the Properties tab for highlighted objects that have a discrepancy between the P&ID and the 3D model. Objects that do not match are displayed in a different background color.

  7. Review the Topology tab to understand the differences in shapes between the 3D model and the design basis.

  8. Select Copy properties from design basis if you want to update the 3D object properties. Clear this option to prevent overwriting the 3D object properties from design basis.

  9. Click Update to correlate the 3D object with design basis object.

You can also select the Correlate with Design Basis command after activating a model object, a design basis object, or both types of objects. If you select an object before starting the command, follow the prompts on the status bar at the lower left of the application window.
