Configuring Smart 3D to work in an integrated environment provides a platform for data exchange, sharing, and integration across various software tools, enabling concurrent use and rapid communication among all Smart 3D project participants. Critical information is stored only once in a data-neutral warehouse, eliminating duplication and ensuring that timely, accurate data is always available.
Two steps are required to take advantage of the Smart 3D integration functionality:
Install the SmartPlant Client and Schema Component on your Smart 3D workstation computers, as necessary. For more information about installing Smart 3D components, see the Integration Setup Guide, available in the SmartPlant Enterprise documentation set.
In order to take full advantage of the Piping Specification Remote Access ability between Smart 3D and Smart P&ID, you must install the SmartPlant Client and Schema Component on a Smart 3D workstation computer on which the Project Management, Server Connectivity, and Piping Specification Remote Access Server options are installed.
Use the Project Management task to register your Smart 3D model. For more information about registering models, see Smart 3D Project Management.
