Prior to routing a pipe, make sure that your reference 3D model attributes are mapped to corresponding Smart 3D attributes.

  1. Click Route Pipe on the vertical toolbar.

  2. Select a reference 3D port, and then click to route the pipe run.

    If the reference 3D port is not available, hover the mouse on the end of the reference 3D object until the Circle 3d , Revolution 3d , or Ruled Surface glyph displays, and then click to route the pipe run. Similarly, if the reference 3D ports are not available for turns or reducers, select a point close to port 1, the software routes in the direction of port 1. If you select a point close to port 2, the software routes in the direction of port 2.

  3. On the New Pipe Run dialog box, select the parent Pipeline.

    If there are no pipeline systems defined in Workspace Explorer, create a new pipeline system. Alternatively, select a pipeline system from the database to which you want to associate the new pipe run.

  4. In the Name box, type a name for the pipe run. If you do not specify a name, the software automatically generates a name.

  5. On the Reference 3D tab, enter all required properties, and edit the existing properties as needed. For more information, see Reference 3D Tab.

  6. Click OK to close the New Pipe Run dialog box.

  7. Select the end-point of the pipe run, and then continue routing.

  8. Right-click to end routing.
