The following Training Manual includes all the fundamentals of Equipment building including positioning and orientation
both by attribute manipulation manually, but also using graphical picking which also introduces event driven graphics.
At the end of this training, you will:
• Know how to create equipment elements.
• Know how to create, position, orientate and connect primitives.
• Know how to modify elements and manipulate attributes.
• Understand the principles of graphical hits to modify elements
• Manipulate the graphical representation of elements.
(pdms training): The next step in designing a pipe is to create and position a series of fittings, which define the pipe route you require.
Just as on a drawing board, you need to decide which piping components are needed in order to satisfy the
requirements of the process. The components must be arranged so that the pipe meets its design needs. However,
unlike on the drawing board, you do not need to know any fitting dimensions, PDMS derives these automatically from
To create piping fittings, you need to select an item from the list of fittings available to you from the associated piping
specification. Typical types of fitting available are Elbows, Tees, Reducers, Flanges, Gaskets and Valves etc. There is
some intelligence build into the PDMS forms so that by placing for example a valve the associated Gaskets and Flanges
will also be created.
For all piping components, you will need to carry out the following steps: -
Select the component from the piping specification, position the component and set the orientation.
There tube is not created explicitly it is created automatically or implied by placing fittings.
