  1. Locate an existing nozzle.

  2. Click Route Pipe on the vertical toolbar, and then select an existing nozzle.

    The New Pipe Run properties dialog box is displayed.

    Make sure that you unlock the Angle to route from point cloud data.

  3. Provide the new pipe run properties in the New Pipe Run dialog box and click OK.

  4. Press CTRL+SHIFT, and then select a point cloud point on the pipe run near the nozzle.

    If the pipe is not coincident with existing nozzle, the software logs the following error message in Smart 3D log.

    "System was unable to compute an intersection point from the point cloud data. Routing will be continued in free space without Point Cloud assistance".

  5. If the diameter of the new pipe run is not equal to the point cloud diameter, follow the below procedure:

    The software displays the following message: "The current pipe run nominal diameter is not equal to the point cloud pipe run diameter. Do you want to override the current pipe run nominal diameter using the point cloud diameter?"

    1. Click Yes to override the current pipe run diameter with point cloud diameter. Skip to step 7.

      OR

    2. Click No to use the existing diameter of the pipe run. Skip to step 8.

      The New Pipe Run properties dialog box is displayed.

  6. If the diameter of the existing pipe run is not equal to the point cloud diameter, follow the below procedure:

    The software displays the following message: "The current pipe run nominal diameter is not equal to the point cloud pipe run diameter. Do you want to create a new pipe run using the point cloud diameter?"

    1. Click No to continue routing with initially selected pipe run diameter. Skip to step 8.

      OR

    2. Click Yes to create a new pipe run with user defined diameter. Skip to step 7.

      The New Pipe Run properties dialog box is displayed with point cloud diameter.

  7. Modify the diameter of the pipe as necessary.

  8. Click OK.

  9. Press CTRL+SHIFT, and then select another point cloud point on the pipe to place the pipe. You can select a point cloud point on the second leg to place the pipe.

  10. Continue routing.
