After you have placed an equipment object in the model, it might be necessary to adjust its properties or its relationships with other objects in the model. The Equipment and Furnishings task provides you with the flexibility to make design changes at any point in the design process.

All items that compose an equipment object have properties that you can edit. Using the Select command on the vertical toolbar, you select the object to edit. An important part of the Select command is the Locate Filter box that appears on the ribbon.

The Locate Filter box contains the available, pre-defined filters for the Select command. When you choose a filter in the Locate Filter box, the software allows you to select only the filtered items in a graphic view and in the Workspace Explorer. For example, if you select Shape, you can select only shapes that have been placed in a graphic view or in the Workspace Explorer.

The Equipment and Furnishings task includes these filters:

Cable Nozzle

Limits the selection of items to cable nozzles within an equipment object.

Cable Tray Nozzle

Limits the selection of items to cable tray nozzles within an equipment object.

Conduit Nozzle

Limits the selection of items to conduit nozzles within an equipment object.

Construction Graphics

Limits the selection of items to construction graphics.

Control Points

Limits the selection of items to the control points of an equipment object.

Equipment

Limits the selection of items to only equipment items that have been placed from the catalog or as designed equipment items.

Equipment Component

Limits the selection of items to a component of the equipment object.

Foundation Port

Limits the selection of items to the foundation port of the equipment object.

HVAC Nozzle

Limits the selection of items to HVAC nozzles within an equipment object.

Pipe Nozzle

Limits the selection of items to pipe nozzles within an equipment object.

Shape

Limits the selection of items to the individual shapes that compose a designed equipment object in a graphic view or in the Workspace Explorer.

Solids

Limits the selection of items to solids within an equipment object.

All

Allows the selection of any object, even objects created in another task.

Displays the Select Filter dialog box. Displays the Select Filter dialog box. The Select Filter dialog box displays all of the simple filters that are set up to accept object type or system objects as discrimination data. You can then select additional filters to add them to this list. Only the selection of filters is available; all other options are disabled.

Inside Fence

Selects all objects entirely inside the fence.

Inside/Overlap Fence

Selects all objects entirely inside the fence and those outside but touching the fence at some point.

The Properties dialog box allows you to adjust any of the occurrence properties of a particular piece of equipment, shape, or nozzle; not only during initial placement, but also afterward, including properties that may change the size or shape of the equipment, shape, or nozzle.

If the equipment model was designed using Solid Edge, modifying any occurrence properties also requires that Solid Edge be installed on your computer.

The Positioning Relationship box sets necessary constraints for a piece of equipment or shape either at placement or afterward. Because shapes, equipment objects, and ports added to an equipment object move as a rigid body when the equipment object is manipulated, you must avoid creating positioning relationships that conflict with this rigid body behavior when adding objects to an equipment object. With this in mind, relationships should be restricted to only those objects belonging to the designed equipment object.
