Intergraph Smart 3D

Displays a retrieved cable schedule. You can select cables to import or update. The Process button updates existing cable and imports other cable. This command is located on the dialog box that displays during View Cable Schedule.

In an integrated environment, the Electrical task and Smart 3D Electrical can share a cable schedule, along with several cable properties.

You can retrieve a cable schedule using the SmartPlant > Retrieve command. Then, you can view the schedule and create or update cable objects while in the Electrical task within Smart 3D.

If you want to create cables in a specific electrical system, select the system in the Workspace Explorer before viewing the cable schedule or processing those cables. If you do not select an electrical system, then the software creates the cables in an electrical system with the same name as the cable schedule document. If no such system exists, then the software creates one.

Your project may contain pumps with integrated motors or separate motors. Both situations are handled in the software. When retrieving cable data, Smart 3D searches the cable schedule and displays the cable connection in the To/From field for the cable connection.  If the pump does not appear in the cable schedule, then the pump is referenced.  You can visually see what is being created with the cable in the To/From field. Upon finding one or the other, a cable is created and connected to the motor or the pump.
