  1. Click SmartPlant > Retrieve to retrieve the P&IDs that contain the runs to route. You can skip this step if the P&IDs have already been retrieved.

  2. Click SmartPlant > View P&ID to view the P&ID that contains the first part of the run to route.

  3. Select All or Piping Runs in the Locate Filter.

  4. Click Route Pipe on the vertical toolbar.

  5. In the Run pull-down list on the ribbon bar, select <Select from P&ID>.

  6. From the P&ID drawing, select the run to route.

  7. The New Pipe Run dialog box appears with properties populated from the design basis. Click OK to accept the properties given. This step saves the correlated run information and closes the New Pipe Run dialog box.

  8. Select points to define the route of your pipe run.

    You can use PinPoint, Point Along, and the SmartSketch relationship indicators when defining your pipe run.

  9. Right-click to end a pipe run in space (not terminated on a nozzle or branch).

    After routing, notice that the correlation color in the P&ID Viewer does not show a data match. This mismatch is because the second part of the run noted through the off-page connector has not yet been routed and correlated. The off-page connector displays the corresponding P&ID to find the matching connector.

  10. Click SmartPlant > View P&ID to view the corresponding P&ID noted by the previous drawing.

  11. Click Route Pipe on the vertical toolbar.

  12. In the Run pull-down list on the ribbon bar, select <Select from P&ID>.

  13. Select the other side of the run to route from the corresponding P&ID.

  14. The New Pipe Run dialog box appears with properties populated from the design basis. Click OK to accept the properties given, which saves the correlated run information and closes the New Pipe Run dialog box.

  15. Route the run to the end of the first pipe run. Because the software places a weld when the two ends are connected, you should choose an appropriate location along the pipe run for the weld caused by the off-page connector. This prevents unnecessary welds from being created.
