The PipeMfgSpoolRule sheet in the BulkLoadIsoKeys.xls workbook specifies how the software breaks pipes into spools. The workbook is delivered to the [Product Folder]\CatalogData\BulkLoad\DataFiles folder and is bulkloaded into the catalog.

You can also use the spooling commands in the Piping task to specify these rules, but the changes are not saved to the Catalog or the session file.

Name

Specifies the naming rule for spools.

BreakatUnion

Specifies that the software breaks the spools at unions.

IncludeStubIn

Specifies that a spool can include the stub-in pipe and all the parts of this stub-in branch until the first spool breaking component is encountered.

IncludeWeldedParts

Includes welded objects, such as pipe hanger or support parts, in the same spool as the components to which they are welded.

InSituON

Not used.

Updation

Specifies whether or not existing spools are deleted.

The Updation option should always be set to on. It prevents the loss of existing spools during re-spooling operations. You should only override this option using the interactive options provided with the commands available in the Piping task.

MaxLength

Provides the maximum length of a spool for oversizing calculation purposes. You should use ft (feet) for the units. If you specify units other than feet, the software uses meters as the units.

MaxWidth

Provides the maximum width of a spool for oversizing calculations purposes. You should use ft (feet) for the units. If you specify units other than feet, the software uses meters as the units.

MaxHeight

Provides the maximum height of a spool for oversizing calculation purposes. You should use ft (feet) for the units. If you specify units other than feet, the software uses meters as the units.

SequencingType

Not used.

SpoolingBasis

Controls the user interface displayed when spooling operations run. If set to Pipeline, the software user interface is set to pipeline spooling within the system hierarchy. If set to Block, the software user interface is set to block spooling within the assembly hierarchy.

The SpoolingBasis option should be set at the beginning of a project and not changed for the duration of the project.

IgnoreBoundaries

When set to False, the software will not cross the boundary of the pipeline or block. When set to True, the software will cross the boundary of the pipeline or block for spool generation until an intrinsic spool break is found. This feature is intended for use when pooling by block.

SpoolBreakByControlPoint

Specifies if spools should break at control points. You can place control points using the Insert Control Point command in the Piping task. You must set the control point Subtype to Spool Break in order to use the control point with this option. Select Ignore Control Points to ignore the control points during spooling. Select Break at Control Points to break spools at the normal intrinsic line breaks and at control points. Select Break Only at Control Points to break spools only at control points.
