  1. Click SmartPlant > Retrieve to retrieve the P&ID drawing that contains the run that you want to route. You can skip this step if the P&ID has already been retrieved.

  2. Click SmartPlant > View P&ID to view the P&ID drawing that contains the run that you want to route.

  3. Click Route Pipe on the vertical toolbar.

  4. In the Run pull-down list on the ribbon bar, select <Select from P&ID>.

  5. Select the run to route from the P&ID drawing.

  6. The New Pipe Run dialog box appears with properties populated from the design basis. Click OK to accept the properties given. This step saves the correlated run information and closes the New Pipe Run dialog box.

  7. Select points to define the route of your pipe run.

    • If process data was not defined on the P&ID, then you must manually type a temperature and pressure.

    • You can use PinPoint, Point Along, and the SmartSketch relationship indicators when defining your pipe run.

    • If you select an equipment nozzle that is correlated with P&ID design basis data, the software automatically determines which run should be connected.

  8. Select the ending point of the pipe run. Right-click to end a pipe run that does not terminate in a nozzle or branch.

Your plant must be registered with the Smart 3D integrated environment to use this procedure.
