Displays options for turns or bends placed in the model.

Properties

Activates the properties dialog box for the selected turn. For more information, see Pipe Turn Feature Properties Dialog Box.

Move From

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

 Move To

Click to identify the termination point of the move vector.

Plane

Activates options for selecting a working plane for the turn. 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 turn is associated. Also displays other pipe runs associated with the same pipeline parent.

  • You can select a different piperun from the list, if necessary.

  • Select <New Pipe Run> to create a new pipe run to route.

  • Select <Select Graphically> to select an existing run in a graphic view, the Workspace Explorer, or the P&ID View.

  • Select More to select a pipe run associated with a different pipeline.

Type

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

Option

Displays the options available for the selected turn type. For example, if two different wall thickness values are available in the piping specification for the short code selected in the Type box, both options appear in this list. Selecting an entry from the Option list updates the object accordingly.

 Flip

Orients the turn so that the other turn port is connected to the end of the run. This option is available only when a turn is connected to the end of a run and no other part has been connected to the other turn port.

 Lock Angle

Locks or unlocks the Angle 2 and Angle 3 boxes. Locking the corresponding angle value creates a constraint along which the selected turn angle can be moved.

Angle 2

Specifies the angle of the turn feature located at the end of one associated leg. If this box is blank, there is no turn feature located at the end of the leg. When you select this box, the software highlights the Angle 2 turn feature in the model. Although this value can be changed, the location of the corresponding turn cannot. Modification of this value repositions the selected turn until the specified angle is achieved.

Angle 1

Specifies the angle of the turn that you are editing. Modification of this value repositions the selected turn until the specified angle is achieved.

Angle 3

Specifies the angle of the turn feature located at the end of one associated leg. If this box is blank, there is no turn feature located at the end of the leg. When you select this box, the software highlights the Angle 2 turn feature in the model. Although this value can be changed, the location of the corresponding turn cannot. Modification of this value repositions the selected turn until the specified angle is achieved.

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.

 Modify Slope

Activates the Modify Slope dialog box, with which you can modify the slope of the legs on either side of the selected turn. For more information, see Modify Slope Dialog Box.
