After data is retrieved into your Smart Construction site, you can plan components in your IWPs. For more information, see Add, view, or remove components in an IWP.

Which components are planned in IWPs?

In most cases, you'll plan IWPs with the latest retrieved data in your construction site. If data with fabrication modifications is retrieved into your construction site, you'll plan IWPs with data that has modification changes. When you select a component in a model or drawing and drag it to your IWP, the latest data is pulled into your IWP.

There are special cases when superseded, or outdated, components can be planned. If you have specific security permissions, you can plan a superseded component or spool in your IWP by dragging the superseded component to an IWP. If you try to plan a superseded component without the proper permissions, Smart Construction alerts you.

I was working with a particular spool in a drawing in my project, and now I can't find it. Where did it go?

If you can't find a particular spool in a drawing, it was most likely superseded and replaced with new data after fabrication modifications were retrieved into your site. Smart Construction alerts users with an engineering change flag on an IWP when planned drawings have been updated.

What components do I see in models and drawings?

In most cases, you'll see the latest isometric data in drawings, if that data was retrieved into your Smart Construction project.

Models are not always updated graphically with the latest fabrication changes. When you search for components using Quick Find, or you filter, use selection rules or the Clip Volume box, the search results and filters display the latest retrieved data. That data includes fabrication modifications, if that data was retrieved to your site.

When highlighting fabricated components, such as spools in a 3D model, the make-up of these components could differ from what is present in the model being viewed. You can select a user preference to determine what is highlighted in the model - closest match highlights the original engineered parts that match closest to the fabricated parts, and exact match highlights only the parts that exist in the model being viewed. Smart Construction displays the exact match in any fabrication drawing.

Using the SPC_PackageReplacedEngineeringComponents, SPC_OriginalDrawingView, and SPC_OriginalSpoolView access groups, you can search and select components in models using the Clip Volume dialog box, selection rules, and Quick Find to view which components and spools were superseded by fabrication. The results show both the current component and the superseded one.

How do I see both the engineering and fabrication data in Smart Construction?

Using the SPC_OriginalDrawingView and SPC_OriginalSpoolView access groups, you can view both the engineering and fabrication data in Smart Construction, if that data was retrieved to your site. When configured, you can view the superseded and current data in filters, Quick Find, selection rules, and the Clip Volume dialog box. You can configure Smart Construction to display both the latest engineering drawing and any superseded versions of the drawing. For example, an engineering drawing might be superseded by a drawing with fabrication changes. You can configure Smart Construction to display both the current spool and any superseded versions of the spool.
