Displays options for branches placed in the model.

Properties

Activates the properties dialog box for the selected branch. For more information, see Pipe Component 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 branch is the starting point.

Move To

Click to identify the termination point of the move vector.

Type

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

Option

Displays the option of the selected branch. The Option list also contains any options defined in the piping specification for the short code selected in the Type box. Selecting another entry from the Option list updates the object accordingly.

Run

Displays the name of the pipe run to which the branch is associated. All other pipe runs associated with the same pipeline parent also appear in the list. Another pipe run can be selected if needed. 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.

Angle 1

Specifies the angle of the branch.

Angle 2

Specifies the angle of the turn or branch feature located at the other end of the branch leg. If this box is blank, there is no turn or branch feature located at the end of the branch leg.

Flip

Orients the branch so that the selected port is located at the insertion point. If a lateral, tee, or other tee-type branch is located along the length of a pipe or between two components, only the in-line ports of the component are available when flipping. However, if the same component is located at the end of a pipe run, all component ports are available.

 Rotate

Select to rotate the branch about the pipe interactively. This option is available only when nothing has been connected to the branch port.

Angle

Type an angle at which you want the branch rotated about the pipe. This option is available only when nothing has been connected to the branch port.

Branch Position

Select the position of the branch centerline relative to the header centerline. Select Radial to place the branch such that its centerline intersects the header centerline. Select Non-Radial to place the branch such that its center line does not intersect the header centerline. If you select Non-Radial, you can specify the distance the branch centerline is offset from the header centerline up to being tangent to the outside diameter of the header.
