    Each pipeline is processed in turn and automatically saved as a .pod file in the Pipes and SPIImport folders of the current SmartPlant Isometrics project.

  5. After import processing completes, the software displays a message box. Click Yes to view the log file, or click No to close the message box without viewing the log file.

  • A log file named SPIBatchImport.log is saved to your local Temp folder. To view its contents, open the log file with any standard text editor.

  • If the software fails to import the pipeline due to bad data or some other inconsistency within the piping data file, it will display an appropriate error message.

  • Import processing results are also written in the SPIImport.mes file and saved to the SPIImport\Messages folder of the current SmartPlant Isometrics project. This message file reports any irregularities or errors that the software encountered while importing the piping data file and is useful in troubleshooting import failures. To view its contents, open the message file with any standard text editor.
