Course Overview 10 Copyright © 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated Mar-13 Getting Started Module Overview OpenPlant Modeler provides a full range of intelligent 3D modeling applications for the engineering and design of process plants and discrete manufacturing. Also included are modules for producing project deliverables. Module Prerequisites • You must have a working knowledge of MicroStation 2D and 3D modeling. OpenPlant Modeler uses standard MicroStation conventions, such as precision key-in using AccuDraw, clip volume, display depth, text editing and view manipulations. • You must also have a working knowledge of ProjectWise. OpenPlant Modeler uses ProjectWise to store components, reference drawings and working documents. Deliverables are also stored and managed in ProjectWise. Module Objectives After completing this module, you will be able to: Mar-13 • Start OpenPlant Modeler and connect to a datasource. • Explore the User Interface. • Create Units, Systems and Pipelines. 11 Copyright © 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated Getting Started Starting OpenPlant Modeler Starting OpenPlant Modeler OpenPlant Modeler starts like any other MicroStation based program. It is installed on your local hard drive and the project workspaces are stored either on your local hard drive or on a shared network drive. ProjectWise managed workspaces may also be used, but are not covered here. Where OpenPlant Modeler differs from other applications, is that the components within the model reside in the ProjectWise database and are not stored in a file. The working model file is a temporary file used solely to allow you to see your model upon check out. The check in/check out process will be discussed later in this book.  Exercise: Start OpenPlant Modeler 1 From the Start menu select, Start > All Programs > Bentley > Bentley OpenPlant Modeler V8i (SELECTseries 5) > Bentley OpenPlant Modeler V8i (SELECTseries 5). 2 Select OP_Training_M datasource and enter your user name and password. 3 Click Log in. 4 If the Select working directory dialog appears, browse to a folder to hold your working documents from ProjectWise. Getting Started 12 Copyright © 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated Mar-13 Starting OpenPlant Modeler 5 When the ProjectWise File Open dialog appears, click Cancel. Note: By canceling this dialog, we have effectively disconnected ourselves from ProjectWise for getting dgn files. For this exercise, this is ok. Normally, it is recommended that all working models be stored in ProjectWise, this allows you to reference other models, like the structural or electrical models, and would also allow you to take advantage of the managed workspace features. In later modules we will open files from the ProjectWise datasource. 6 In the OpenPlant Modeler File Open dialog, click New File. 7 Type OP_Training_M in the File name field. Note: The name of the file must be unique because you will need to check your files in and out of a single datasource. Mar-13 13 Copyright © 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated Getting Started Starting OpenPlant Modeler 8 Click Save. 9 Highlight your new file and click Open, or double-click on the file. Note: If the following dailog appears provide the details. Getting Started 14 Copyright © 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated Mar-13 The OpenPlant Modeler User Interface The OpenPlant Modeler User Interface OpenPlant Modeler uses Task based tools. This means that tools are grouped in logical sets. Meaning, if you are working on Equipment tasks, you will not find Piping tools. OpenPlant uses two other dockable windows to allow you access to components and their associated data. They are the Item Browser and the Details window. The Item Browser accesses the Model Server for components. These are arranged in user customizable groupings. The delivered groupings are Area, Service and Unit. You will also find stored queries, used to sort the data at the local level. You might write a query to show you all of the equipment in Area 1, or all of the pipe in Unit 4. These queries can be stored locally (for only the current user) or globally (for the entire project) Mar-13 15 Copyright © 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated Getting Started The OpenPlant Modeler User Interface The toolbar at the top of the Item Browser will be discussed in more detail in a later module in this book. The Standard Preferences dialog may also be docked at either side or top or bottom of the screen. It is best practice to keep this dialog open where you can see it at all times. You will use this dialog to change the pipeline you are working with, as well as the spec, size and insulation settings. The OpenPlant Modeler menu gives you access to all of the above dialogs, as well as Reporting and Clash Detection Tools. There is also a menu for importing models converted with the ProjectWise PDx Dynamic Review Service. There is also a Getting Started 16 Copyright © 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated Mar-13 The OpenPlant Modeler User Interface menu for importing models converted with PSDS upgrade utility. This last menu will not be covered in this book. Mar-13 17 Copyright © 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated Getting Started Creating Units, Systems and Pipelines Creating Units, Systems and Pipelines Before you can begin modeling, you must have Units and/or Systems and Pipelines to associate the components to. This is how they are stored in the database and how you may query them at a later time to find them for check out or referencing.  Exercise: Creating Units, Systems and Pipelines 1 In the Standard Preferences dialog, click the arrow in the Pipeline list. 2 Select New... 3 Expand (+) the Unit node. 4 Type EPC in the Name field. 5 Type Engineering Procurement Construction in the Description field.

Without the Model Server, a user would not be able to produce reports or isometrics. Module Prerequisites • Basic OpenPlant Modeler functions Module Objectives After completing this module, you will be able to: Mar-13 • Check components in and out of the database. • Reference components out of the database and maintain them. • Write simple queries to the database. 69 Copyright © 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated OpenPlant Model Server Component Check Out/Check In Component Check Out/Check In The ability to check out individual pieces of equipment or single pipelines is a very powerful tool. This allows the work to be distributed to a far greater number of modelers than previous workflows would allow. Also, by using the Model Server, file corruptions are never an issue, the idea of a model file is now moot. Any design file with the correct units and opened in the correct workspace can now be used to check out or reference out model components. In the previous module, you created all of your equipment and finished by checking them into the database. Now let’s look at how you may use them moving forward. The Item Browser When you need to check out items to work on, you will start in the Item Browser. OpenPlant Model Server 70 Copyright © 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated Mar-13 Component Check Out/Check In The Item Browser has three distinct areas. The toolbar at the top, the OpenPlant Model Component Browser, and the Active Component Browser. The toolbar contains buttons to allow you to interact with the database. Show Details: Brings the Details window to the forefront, this window is much like the standard Element Info in Microstation, but gives you details of an element not necessarily in your model. This information comes directly from the database. To see the details of a component, simply highlight it in the component tree. Open Tree Manager: This button opens the Tree Manager, which allows you to change how you view your data from the database. Exercise to follow. Refresh Active Tree: Updates the data in your Active Tree from the database. Check In All: Checks in all components from your model. Free All: Frees checked out components from the database and deletes them from your model. Mar-13 71 Copyright © 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated OpenPlant Model Server Component Check Out/Check In Warning: You should be very careful with this command, any modifications to existing components will be lost if you use this command. Clear All Referenced Elements From Design File: Deletes all referenced components from your model. OpenPlant Model Server Status Tool: Allows you to view the status of components in your model and compare them to the database. This function allows you to verify that new or modified components do not conflict with items in the database. OpenPlant Model Server Operations History: Shows you the Check In/Check Out history of components in your model. Exercise to follow. Refresh All: Updates your referenced components from the database to show any recent changes, and updates the database with changes in your current model. Update All: Updates the database with any changes in your current model. Query ProjectWise: Opens the Query ProjectWise dialog to allow you to search for components based upon any number of attributes. Exercise to follow.  Exercise: Check Out Equipment Now that we have explored the icons in the toolbar, we will check out components. This is the first step as you begin to work. If you need to modify a piece of equipment, you will first have to check it out. If you need to work on a pipeline, you will first have to check it out also. You may check out components at any number of levels within the component tree, but it is recommended that you check out at the lowest level possible. Checking out the entire Unit will lock that entire Unit away from other users. The same is true for checking out a Service, all pipelines and equipment under that service will be locked. For this reason, it is recommended that you only check out individual pieces of equipment or just the pipelines you will be working on. 1 Open the Component Browser. 2 Expand (+) the Unit node. 3 Expand (+) the HTF node. 4 Expand (+) the Equipment node.

In the above diagram, components are referenced out from OpenPlant Modeler Server (OPMS) to snapshot.dgn. Non component based disciplines are added to a snapshot as reference files. The snapshot represents all components that are needed in the drawing. As Snapshot.dgn will be updated frequently, the drawing definitions (dynamic views) are stored in additional files.  Exercise: Creating Snapshot of the Overall Model The purpose of this exercise is to create a new model and reference in all components to have a snapshot in time of overall project components. 1 In the ProjectWise Datasource navigate to ..\OP Working Model folder. 2 Launch the Advanced Wizard.

By simply checking a model visually, you could miss an interference, however; you can automate this detection process using the Clash Detection tool. Module Prerequisites • All previous modules in OpenPlant Fundamentals course Module Objectives After completing this module, you will be able to: Mar-13 • Review the OpenPlant model using Clash Detection tool. • Managing Clash list and determine status of the clashes. • Manage Rules for detecting Clashes between components. 205 Copyright © 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated OpenPlant Model Review Clash Detection Clash Detection The Clash Detection engine uses new technology for better performance and workflows. The Clash Detection engine uses the graphical data and associated attributes to detect interferences in OpenPlant models. It creates a reusable configuration that specifies the elements and levels to include in the detection process, checking for clashes from multiple disciplines, such as pipes against other pipes, equipment, and structure. Clash Detection Interface 1 Select Tools > Clash Detection> Open as ToolBox. 2 Click Clash Detection on the Clash Detection toolbox. The following dialog opens. The Clash Detection dialog has two menus Job and Results. To run Clash Detection on a model, you must create a Clash Detection Job. From the Criteria tab you can define the criteria for detecting clashes i.e. the Criteria tab allows you to select items by Levels, References (models) or Named Groups. In the Rules tab you can pick the Clash Suppression rules, and in the Results tab you can review results in form of a Clash List. Clash Detection Basics During clash detection, the graphic elements of one object is compared with the graphic elements of other objects in the same model and in other models that are referenced. The geometry hidden in a view is not included in clash detection. OpenPlant Model Review 206 Copyright © 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated Mar-13 Clash Detection The results are evaluated to determine if the surfaces or edges of one object intersect those of another object. If interfering objects are detected, they are recorded for your review. The results of the clashes are shown as either a hard clash or a clearance. These calculations also are compared to the tolerances that users specify in the object set. Clearance Clearance allows users to expand the space around an element so that the extra area can be calculated when executing a clash detection. For example, if user wants to detect clashes between pipes and metal, he can add a clearance value to the pipes to allow for insulation around the pipes. Types of Clashes There are two types of clashes: Hard clash A hard clash is a physical clash between elements. If the graphic elements from two different objects intersect, then a hard clash is reported. Clearance A clearance checks for a clash taking into consideration the added area around the physical element. If any part of a graphic element from one object lies within a specified distance of another object, but does not intersect any of the graphic elements of that object, then a clearance is reported. Tolerance Tolerance is the range of variation permitted in maintaining a specified standard when designing. The Tolerance value is set in the Rules tab of the Clash Detection dialog. The default value is set to 1 mm; the maximum value is 10 cm. Mar-13 207 Copyright © 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated OpenPlant Model Review Working with Clash Detection Tool Working with Clash Detection Tool In these exercises you will: • Create a new model and reference in all components to have a snapshot in time of overall project components. • Run the Clash Detection on the snapshot to create a clash list, navigate through clashes and assign status to the clashes. • Learn to create new rules for suppressing clashes between components.  Exercise 1: Creating a Model Snapshot 1 In the ProjectWise Datasource navigate to the OP Working Model folder. 2 Creating a new document using the advanced wizard. 3 Select OP Working Model in the Select Target Folder dialog of the Advanced Document Creation Wizard. 4 Click Next.

Component Check Out/Check In

Component Check Out/Check In
The ability to check out individual pieces of equipment or single pipelines is a very powerful tool. This allows the work to be distributed to a far greater number of modelers than previous workflows would allow. Also, by using the Model Server, file corruptions are never an issue, the idea of a model file is now moot. Any design file with the correct units and opened in the correct workspace can now be used to check out or reference out model components. In the previous module, you created all of your equipment and finished by checking them into the database. Now let’s look at how you may use them moving forward.

When you need to check out items to work on, you will start in the Item Browser.

Warning: You should be very careful with this command, any modifications to

existing components will be lost if you use this command. Clear All Referenced Elements From Design File: Deletes all referenced components from your model. OpenPlant Model Server Status Tool: Allows you to view the status of components in your model and compare them to the database. This function allows you to verify that new or modified components do not conflict with items in the database. OpenPlant Model Server Operations History: Shows you the Check In/Check Out history of components in your model. Exercise to follow. Refresh All: Updates your referenced components from the database to show any recent changes, and updates the database with changes in your current model. Update All: Updates the database with any changes in your current model. Query ProjectWise: Opens the Query ProjectWise dialog to allow you to search for components based upon any number of attributes. Exercise to follow.

Exercise: Check Out Equipment Now that we have explored the icons in the toolbar, we will check out components. This is the first step as you begin to work. If you need to modify a piece of equipment, you will first have to check it out. If you need to work on a pipeline, you will first have to check it out also. You may check out components at any number of levels within the component tree, but it is recommended that you check out at the lowest level possible. Checking out the entire Unit will lock that entire Unit away from other users. The same is true for checking out a Service, all pipelines and equipment under that service will be locked. For this reason, it is recommended that you only check out individual pieces of equipment or just the pipelines you will be working on. 1 Open the Component Browser. 2 Expand (+) the Unit node. 3 Expand (+) the HTF node. 4 Expand (+) the Equipment node.
