  1. Click SmartPlant > Retrieve to retrieve the P&ID that contains the nozzle to place. You can skip this step if the P&ID has already been retrieved.

  2. Click SmartPlant > View P&ID to view the P&ID that contains the nozzle to place.

  3. In the P&ID, select the nozzle to place in the model.

  4. Click Place Nozzle on the vertical toolbar.

  5. Select the equipment or designed equipment object on which to place the nozzle.

    You can either select the shape in a graphic view, or you can select it in the Workplace Explorer.

    The Nozzle Properties dialog box appears.

  6. Verify that the property values defined on the Occurrence tab are correct as compared to the nozzle report.

  7. On the Location tab, specify the placement type and type values for the location parameters as needed.

  8. Click OK.

    The Nozzle Properties dialog box closes, and you return to the model with the nozzle placed.

  9. Click SmartPlant > Compare Design Basis, and verify the correlation status of the nozzle in the model.

  10. If necessary, click Copy properties from design basis, and then click Update to transfer data in the P&ID to match the 3D model object.

  • The software automatically sets all mapped nozzle properties in the 3D model as defined by the currently selected P&ID nozzle.

  • After the nozzle is placed in the 3D model, it can be moved without affecting the correlation. If it is deleted, it does not delete the P&ID design basis object.

  • Correlation is a relationship between an object in the 3D model and the corresponding object in the P&ID. For example, a nozzle in the 3D model is related to a nozzle in the P&ID.

  • The occurrence properties of the nozzle object in the 3-D model that are not correlated with corresponding properties in the design basis object (that is, the nozzle in the P&ID) can be edited without changing the correlation status.
