Introduction

About this GuideCHAPTER 1 1 Introduction This manual is designed to give the Support Administrator guidance on project

This manual is designed to give the Support Administrator guidance on project setup and setting up and configuring the framework templates for the AVEVA Everything3D(AVEVA E3D) Supports application.

Guidance is also provided on how to produce drawings from the model using the Area Based Automatic Drawing Production (ADP) application.

Overview of the AVEVA E3D™ Supports Application AVEVA E3D™ Supports Application

The AVEVA E3D™ Support application allows the user to create standard supports for the pipe work, cable racks, and HVAC model objects. The application is highly interactive, enabling the user to design supports with the minimum of effort. The Support application is also highly configurable allowing the administrator to define project related defaults, to control the design of supports, and to determine the range and types of ancillary support components that can be used on the project.

The standard supports in this application are designed using structural GENSECs and are template driven, so in essence the template reflects the Standard. A default set of structural templates based on British, AISC and DIN Standard Steelwork GENSECs is supplied with the application. All of the supplied templates may be configured by the company or project to adopt any relevant national or regional standard for steelwork GENSECs.

Ancillaries are the element that are normally attached to the supported object such as a U-bolt, Bolt-on Shoe, Anchor, and Slip-unit. The ancillaries associated with the template reflect those available with, or, suitable for, the Standard. If the available templates do not reflect the requirement, a request may be made via the administrator to work with AVEVA Solutions plc to get the requirement designated as a new Standard (and hence a new template) or a Special or Project Special could be created by the Designer.

Ancillaries for cable tray and HVAC, sometimes referred to as fixings, are deemed to be the responsibility of the relevant contractor and are not dealt with in this application.

The AVEVA E3D™ Support development has been completed after consultation with various customers to allow for the various workflows for support design common across the industries we serve inclusive of multi- location working under AVEVA Global.

AVEVA E3D™ Supports have been the subject of several studies to address usability and performance of the application particularly at start-up and ancillary selection and to give the Designers greater flexibility for configuration of support standards.

AVEVA Everything3D™ (2.1) Supports Administration TM-1865

The AVEVA E3D™ Supports application uses a workflow that will NOT require write access to the Piping, Cable Tray, HVAC or main Steelwork elements. The following illustration shows how a Support Ancillary points at a Branch or piping component and a Pseudo attribute is used on the piping component or branch to point to the Support, thus requiring no write access on the piping hierarchy.

thus requiring no write access on the piping hierarchy. Databases Design Consequences • The SUPPO element

Databases Design Consequences

The SUPPO element does not appear in the member list for the branch, a Support Explorer is included to help the Designer to Navigate, Browse, Run the Health check, Modify, Delete and Display Supports.

Isodraft has been enhanced to take into account the SUPP elements.

Moving pipe (By, Drag etc.) will not move supports.

Data Consistency Check has been enhanced to check SUPP elements in the same way that ATTAs are checked.

For example, if the SUPP element is not aligned with the pipe, the Data Consistency Check displays an error message

2 AVEVA E3D™ Supports Projects and Databases

The AVEVA E3Dtraining material uses the Training project (TRA) which has been preconfigured for AVEVA E3D™ Supports.

This chapter describes how the AVEVA E3D™ Supports supplied databases can be included or copied into the current project so that they can be customised. This will also help when adding AVEVA E3D™ Supports to other projects.

Supplied Projects

The AVEVA E3D™ Supports application is supplied to all users of AVEVA E3D™ Supports with several projects, along with any client-specific project.

Projects ACP & APS: AVEVA supplied Catalogue (ACP) and Sample (APS) projects include all the databases required for standard AVEVA E3D™ Supports. Typically, the AVEVA E3D™ Supports Catalogue, Specification, Steelwork Templates and user defined ancillaries. These projects are supplied as part of the main AVEVA Plant software.

Database Requirements

Database Requirements

Database Requirements

The databases used by the Supports application are split into two classes:

AVEVA controlled reference libraries. These databases are maintained by AVEVA and generally regarded as being non-user definable. These databases should be included in customer projects as foreign imports from the AVEVA ACP project.

User definable template and configuration databases. These databases contain client/project specific customised supports data. Basic versions of these databases should initially be copied into a client project from the AVEVA APS project and then modified to suit. User is then free to include the customised versions of these databases either in a local project or by foreign project reference

Databases to be included from ACP project:

MDS/CATA

Catalogues and specifications

7 AVEVA E3D™ Supports Application Defaults

The AVEVA E3D™ Supports, Supports Admin Data form is the main control form for the AVEVA E3D™ Supports application. It allows the administrator to control some of the design limits within which supports can be created. The form also allows the administrator to set the criteria that AVEVA E3D™ Supports uses to locate support zones etc. The default values/settings shown on the forms are those that exist when the AVEVA E3D™ Supports application is first installed.

Some of the defaults on the Options(1) tab can be modified by the designer using the AVEVA E3D™ Supports Application Defaults form, the Designer must be a member of the DESADMIN Team.

The AVEVA E3D™ Supports, Supports Admin Data form modifies values in /MDS/OPTION/DEFAULTS, which are the defaults that are set for the AVEVA E3D™ Supports Application Defaults form in AVEVA E3D™ Supports design.

From the Configuration Group on the SUPPORTS Tab, click the Application Defaults button.

AVEVA Everything3D™ (2.1) Supports Administration TM-1865

This default is also associated with hangers and determines the angle above which a warning is displayed to the user. If the user attempts to support a section of pipe whose slope is greater than or equal to the MDSPIVWARN angle, an error is displayed but the user is allowed to continue with the design process.

It is essential that the value of MDSPIVWARN is always less than the value of MDSMAXPIVA.

In the example given in MDSMAXPIVA and MDSPIVWARN, the designer would have received a warning alert, as the slope of the pipe is greater than the MDSPIVWARN angle but less than the MDSMAXPIVA angle.
