If a P&ID pipe run or pipeline is split into multiple pipe runs or pipelines in Smart 3D, you can use the following procedure to manually correlate these multiple Smart 3D piping objects to the single P&ID pipe run or pipeline.
If you are correlating pipelines, set the filter to Pipelines; likewise, for pipe runs, set the filter to Piping Runs. This is because you cannot select pipelines in P&ID and the software uses the filter to determine what kind of piping objects you are correlating.
Click SmartPlant > Retrieve to retrieve P&ID data into the software.
Open the P&ID in the P&ID File Viewer.
Click SmartPlant > Correlate with Design Basis.
Select an object in the 3D model that you want to correlate.
In the P&ID File Viewer, select the object that you want to correlate.
The software detects whether the P&ID object is already correlated to one or more 3D object. When you see the following message, click Yes to continue.
Selected Design Basis object is already correlated to another 3D object. Are you sure you want to correlate more than one 3D object the same Design Basis object?
If you click No, the software un-correlates the existing correlated run, and then correlates the new run.
Review the Correlate with Design Basis dialog box, set correlating options as needed, and click Update. For more information, see Correlate with Design Basis Dialog Box.
Review discrepancies between the Smart 3D piping object and the design basis using the SmartPlant > Compare Design Basis command.
The Compare Design Basis command helps you to determine if there are missing correlations to the P&ID piping object. For more information, see Compare Design Basis with the Model.
Repeat steps 3 through 6 to correlate more Smart 3D objects to the P&ID piping object. When all related objects in the 3D model are correlated with the P&ID piping object, the Correlation Status property of these 3D objects shows Correlated with data consistency.
