Displays properties for pipe components. A pipe component is a valve, steam trap, strainer or other piping specialty item that splits a pipe.

The order in which the properties display in your view depends on your configuration.

Approval State

Specifies the status of the selected object or filter. Changing this property sets the Status. The display depends on your access level. You might be unable to change the status of the object. The list is defined by the ApprovalStatus codelist.

Smart 3Dx saves an object to the database when you change that object's status. Use Undo (CTRL + Z) to reverse the status change.

You can only edit or manipulate an object with a status of Working.

Branch Reporting Ownership

Specifies the reporting condition for the object. To change the options on the list, edit the Branch Reporting Ownership select list in Catalog.

Rule Driven

Specifies that a rule drives the value. This is the default option. Click to switch to User Driven .

User Driven

Allows you to select a value. Click to switch to Rule Driven .

If the Branch Reporting Ownership is User Driven, you can select:

  • Branch owns branch component, which indicates that Smart 3Dx reports the branch component with the rest of the branch.

  • Header owns branch component, which indicates that Smart 3Dx reports the branch component with the header to which it connects.

Construction Requirement

Specifies the construction requirement for the object. To change the options on the list, edit the Construction Requirement select list in Catalog.

Created by

Specifies the name of the person who created the object.

Date Created

Specifies the creation date of the object.

Date Last Modified

Specifies the date of the last modification to the object.

Defined By

Specifies how the Pad Thickness and the Pad Width values are defined.

By User

Enables you to define the Pad Thickness and the Pad Width.

By System

Displays the default Pad Thickness and Pad Width. These properties are read only.

Dry Center of Gravity

Specifies the location of the dry center-of-gravity for the object.

Dry WCG Origin

Specifies the way in which the dry weight center-of-gravity location is defined. The list is defined by the WCGOrigin codelist.

Computed

Indicates that the software calculates the origin location.

Defined

Indicates that you want to manually define the dry weight center-of-gravity location relative to the active coordinate system.

Fabrication Requirement

Specifies the fabrication requirement for the object. To change the options on the list, edit the Fabrication Type select list in Catalog.

Rule Driven

Specifies that a rule drives the value. This is the default option. Click to switch to User Driven .

User Driven

Allows you to select a value. Click to switch to Rule Driven .

Fabrication Type

Specifies the type of fabrication for the object. To change the options on the list, edit the Fabrication Type select list in Catalog.

Rule Controlled

Specifies that a rule defined for a parent property controls the value. If Rule Controlled does not display, you can select a value.

Hyperlink

Specifies the URL or local file path associated with the object. Click the hyperlink to open the page or object in your default browser. Point to the hyperlink to display the URL or path as a tooltip.

Description

Specifies the descriptive text associated with the hyperlink.

URL

Specifies the web address or local file name associated with the hyperlink. The URL must include the protocol, such as http: or https:, as well as the domain name. For example, https://hexagonppm.com/.

Is Base Part

Specifies whether the object is a base part.

Is Insulated

Specifies whether the nozzle object is insulated. If set to False, you cannot modify the information to any of the insulation properties.

Isometric Sheet Number

Specifies the isometric sheet number for the part. This property is used in conjunction with the Group Pipe Parts Command in Piping.

Last Modified by

Specifies the name of the person who last modified the object.

Name

Specifies the name of the selected object. If the name is too long to entirely display in the box, point to the box to display the complete name as a tool tip. If the name is not defined by a rule, User Defined displays. If this name is generated by a naming rule, Naming Rule displays. If you type a name in this box, Smart 3Dx automatically changes the naming rule to User Defined.

Option

Specifies available component features. The software generates this list based on the pipe specification, the NPD, and the short code that you selected in the Type box. If you have manually selected the part, Option displays as Part selected manually and cannot be changed.

Pad Thickness

Specifies the thickness of the selected reinforcing pad. If Defined By is set to By System, this property is read-only.

Pad Width

Specifies the width of the selected reinforcing pad. If Defined By is set to By System, this property is read-only.

Parent System

Specifies the parent system for the object. Recently used systems that are appropriate to assign as the parent system for this object as well as the Select from Workspace and Select from Model options display in the list. The most recently used system displays at the top.

The parent system of the object must have an Approval Status of Working before you can change the Parent System value. If the Approval Status of the parent system is not set to Working, this value is read-only.

Select Interactively

Turns on or off the interactive selection. When this option is on, you can select the parent object in a graphic view or any of the explorers.

Select from Workspace ICON Select from Workspace

Displays the Select Parent System Dialog with the Workspace tab open. The workspace is the subset of the active model database you specified when you started your design session. Navigate the hierarchy to select the parent system, and then click OK.

Select from Model ICON Select from Model

Displays the Select Parent System Dialog with the Model tab open. The model is all of the objects in the active model database, including those that are not part of your workspace. Navigate the hierarchy to select the parent system, and then click OK.

Part Definition

Specifies the part information for the object, the properties, and their values, as defined in the reference data. For information about the information defined in the reference data, see the appropriate Reference Data Help.

Reporting Requirement

Specifies whether the object is reported. An example of an object that you might not want to report is a spacer for a valve. You must order the valve, but do not need to order the spacer because the spacer comes with the valve. To change the options on the list, edit the Reporting Type select list in the Catalog.

Rule Driven

Specifies that a rule drives the value. This is the default option. Click to switch to User Driven .

User Driven

Allows you to select a value. Click to switch to Rule Driven .

Reporting Type

Specifies the reporting type for the object. To change the options on the list, edit the Reporting Type select list in Catalog.

Rule Controlled

Specifies that a rule defined for a parent property controls the value. If Rule Controlled does not display, you can select a value.

Sequence ID

Specifies the object sequence ID.

Stress System Number

Specifies the stress system number for the part.

Type

Specifies the types of component features allowed by the selected Specification and Nominal Diameter. Component features are listed by short codes. You can change the component feature type if needed. If you have manually selected the part, Type displays as Part selected manually and cannot be changed.

Wet Center of Gravity

Specifies the location of the wet center-of-gravity for the object.

Wet WCG Origin

Specifies the way in which the wet weight center-of-gravity location is defined. The list is defined by the WCGOrigin codelist.

Computed

Indicates that the software calculates the origin location.

Defined

Indicates that you want to manually define the wet weight center-of-gravity location relative to the active coordinate system.
