  1. Open your workspace in Smart 3D with a model to contain hangers and supports.

  2. Click Task > Hangers and Supports.

  3. Click Place Support by Structure on the vertical toolbar.

  4. Select the pipe feature on which you want to place the support.

  5. Click Accept .

  6. Select the member on which to place the hanger, and then select the Type.

  7. Click Finish.

    The software places the hanger.

  8. Click Select on the vertical toolbar, and then select Piping Features in the Locate Filter.

  9. Select a piping component, and then click Properties on the ribbon bar.

  10. Verify that the following properties are set on the piping components in Smart 3D before creating the ISO stress piping component files (PCFs):

    • COMPONENT-ATTRIBUTE1 – Design pressure

    • COMPONENT-ATTRIBUTE2 – Maximum temperature


    • COMPONENT-ATTRIBUTE4 – Wall thickness (reducing thickness in the case of reducing components)

    • COMPONENT-ATTRIBUTE5 – Insulation thickness

    • COMPONENT-ATTRIBUTE6 – Insulation density

    • COMPONENT-ATTRIBUTE7 – Corrosion allowance

    • COMPONENT-ATTRIBUTE8—Component weight

    • COMPONENT-ATTRIBUTE9 – Fluid density

    • COMPONENT-ATTRIBUTE10 – Hydro test pressure

      Some of these properties can be set on the pipeline and some can be set on the piperun. Setting properties in Smart 3D before exporting to CAESAR II saves time because the Pipe Stress Analyst does not have to set them.
