Displays options for editing an end component, such as a cap, blind flange, or a pipe end.

Properties

Displays the Pipe End Feature Properties dialog box. For more information, see Pipe End Feature Properties Dialog Box.

Move From

Click to specify the starting location of the move vector. If you do not define a starting point, the software assumes that the current location of the object is the starting point.

 Move To

Click to specify the ending location of the move vector.

Plane

Activates options for selecting a working plane for the route path. Six options are available:

  • Plan Plane - Defines the work surface as the XY plane at the depth of the active end. You also can press CTRL+1 to select this option.

  • Elevation Plane: East-West - Defines the work surface as the XZ plane. You also can press CTRL+2 to select this option.

  • Elevation Plane: North-South - Defines the work surface as the YZ plane. You also can press CTRL+3 to select this option.

  • Plane by Turn/Branch - Defines the work surface as the plane defined by an existing turn or branch. You select the turn or branch to set the plane. You also can press CTRL+4 to select this option.

  • Plane by Three Points - Defines the work surface using three points that you define. You also can press CTRL+5 to select this option.

  • No Plane - Clears any work surfaces. The software does not project points that you place to any plane. You also can press CTRL+6 to select this option.

Run

Displays the name of the pipe run with which the selected end feature is associated.

Type

Displays the short code associated with the selected end. The Type list also contains the short codes associated with any other end components defined in the piping specification for the current nominal diameter. Selecting an entry from the Type list replaces the selected end component with one of a different type.

Option

Displays the option of the selected end. The Option list also contains any options defined in the piping specification for the short code selected in the Type box. Selecting another entry from the Option list updates the object accordingly.

 Lock Angle

Locks or unlocks the Angle box.

Angle

Displays the angle of any turn or branch component that is located at the other end of the leg with which the selected end feature is associated. If no turn or branch exists at the other end of the leg, then this box is disabled. Changing the angle value adjusts the position of the selected end feature to achieve the specified angle and then locks that angle value. When this box is unlocked, the value updates dynamically as the selected end component is moved.

 Lock Length

Locks or unlocks the Length box.

Length

Displays the length of the run leg connected to the end being edited. Typing a value in this box adjusts the position of the selected end feature to achieve the specified length and then locks that length value. When this box is unlocked, the value updates dynamically as the selected end component is moved.

Offset

Controls the SmartSketch® offset constraint. Type the distance that you want to offset the pipe that you are routing. Select <Disabled> if you do not want to use the offset constraint to help route the pipe. Select Set Offset Reference to define the reference point. For more information on setting the reference point, see Set Offset Reference Dialog Box.

 Lock Slope

Locks or unlocks the Slope box. This option displays only for sloped pipe runs.

Slope

Displays the defined minimum slope for the end feature. Select Use Default Slope to automatically change the slope value to match the Minimum Slope property of the pipe run. You can change the units of measure for the slope using Tools > Options > Units of Measure. This option displays only for sloped pipe runs.
