Rigid/Flexible pipes
Parameter associativity.

DIFFERENT TERMINOLOGIES
Pipeline: An assembly feature consisting of line
segments that represent the centerline of the pipe.
Pipeline parameters: Parameters that define
information such as fluid type, flow direction,
pressure, etc.
Fitting: A part that you assemble at the location
where a pipe joins another pipe, is terminated, or is
clamped.
Line stock: A list of parameters that define the size
and shape of the material used to create a pipe.

FITTINGS

ADDING FITTINGS
TYPES OF FITTINGS
FITTINGS AND COMPONENTS

ADDING FITTINGS
A fitting is an assembly component, typically a part, that you add
to the piping system to perform a specific function.
Essentiality of Entry Ports and Datum Points for assembling
Pro/LIBRARY_ACCESS license
Fittings in a piping system can be placed using piping
functionality, or conventional assembly techniques

TYPES OF FITTINGS
There are three types of Fittings:
CORNER FITTINGS

END FITTINGS

INTERNAL, or
STRAIGHT FITTINGS

FITTINGS PLACEMENT TECHNIQUES


Allow the system to orient it along the pipeline
Insert it at a pipe end (End Fittings)
Insert it at a corner of a pipeline (Corner Fittings)
Insert it at a selected point and break the pipe at the entry ports
(Straight break Fittings)

MANIPULATING FITTINGS AFTER PLACEMENT


Delete it from a pipeline
Change its orientation
Flip its ends 180 degrees
Twist it along the positive z-axis, and specify a value for rotation
Align the x-axis of an entry port with a selected edge
Align the y-axis of an entry port with a selected edge
Replace one fitting with another one

FITTINGS AND COMPONENTS


Line Assemblies
A line assembly is an inseparable piping assembly that is
designed, ordered and tracked by the customer as a single unit.
Note:

All pipelines should be routed within a line assembly

PIPING COMPONENTS
All piping components should be assembled into the piping
assembly.
The best way to locate piping components is to define datum
geometry in the piping skeleton and mate the components to the
skeleton.

EXTRACTING A MODEL
An extracted model is a combination of different fittings and
pipes that is documented as a single entity.
The extracted model has a .prt extension, but only one feature
(a merge), regardless of the number of components it references.
After you select parts to include in the extract model, you can
create a drawing of it.

MODULE SUMMARY
A fitting library is a family table.
Fitting parts require entry ports and typically a datum point, in
order to be considered fittings.
Fittings can be placed with conventional assembly techniques
or the special insert fittings.
Using insert fittings gives you the ability to replace, flip and twist
fittings.
An extract model is merge of fittings and solid pipes.

Piping Information and Drawings

PIPING INFORMATION &


DRAWINGS
Generating Piping bend location
information
Generating Piping machine location
information
Using Pro/REPORT functionality in a
table format to retrieve Bill of Materials
information into a drawing

OBTAINING ENGINEERING INFORMATION


Using the Info option in the PIPING menu, various types of
information can be generated about a piping assembly in the
following ways :
Obtain the length of a selected pipeline, segment, or line
stock
Create bend machine and bend location tables
Generate a Bill of Materials
For a selected pipeline, obtain the name of the working
assembly, pipeline, and current line stock
For a selected pipeline, obtain the name of the working
assembly, pipeline, and current line stock, as well as the
material, diameter, length, and wall thickness of the pipe
Check for line stock parameter violations

CREATING PIPE DRAWINGS


Drawings can be created for:
The entire assembly including pipelines
The solid pipes themselves
Extract models of pipelines and fittings
Various Pro/REPORT tables with engineering information

CHECKING FOR VIOLATIONS


To identify the violations that have been
imposed upon existing pipes, you can perform
a Check Pipe using parameters entered into the
LINESTOCK dialog box.
