Ghost gaps are created in the 3D design system and are used to link related, but unconnected, components such as:

  • One pipeline to another to form a system isometric

  • One part of a pipeline to another part of the same pipeline where the middle section may remain incomplete and unfinished.

The following example shows part of a system isometric that consists of two pipelines. Set OS 110 = 0 to give a standard-sized gap (A). Set OS 110 = 50 to increase the gap size (B).

Gaps may be dimensioned or un-dimensioned, which is controlled from within the 3D design system by defining the appropriate settings in the extracted piping data file. In the previous example, the gaps are un-dimensioned.
