Specifies the minimum diameter of a routed object at which the system may place a flow arrow.

The cross-sectional diameter of the routed object must be equal to or greater than the specified diameter in order for the software to place a flow arrow on the object.

Examples

  • The following image shows a pipe with a diameter of 0.508 m. The specified Minimum Diameter is 0.0 m. The diameter of the pipe is greater than the Minimum Diameter. Therefore, the system places a flow arrow on the pipe.

    1 - 0.0 m diameter pipe
    2 - Flow arrow

  • The following image shows a pipe with a diameter of 0.508 m. The specified Minimum Diameter is 0.1 m. The diameter of the pipe is less than the specified Minimum Diameter. Therefore, the software suppresses the flow arrow.

    1 - 0.508 m pipe

No minDiameter value. The software draws flow arrows for all pipe sizes

No minDiameter value; resymbolized pipe

minDiameter = 0.2; the software does not draw flow arrows for pipes below 200 mm diameter

minDiameter = 0.2; resymbolized pipe

  • The content module Flow Direction (DrawingFlowDirectionContent) uses the Minimum Diameter property.

  • In contrast to the majority of properties, the software interprets the Minimum Diameter distance that you specify as model space units and not paper space units.

  • You must specify a non-negative model value for this diameter.

  • You can use either metric or imperial units for this measurement.

  • To manually edit the .xml, specify the minimum diameter at which a flow arrow must be placed. Enclose this value within the following .xml tags.

<minDiameter>0.02</minDiameter>
