The following appears when I open a model:
---------------------------Error--------------------------- E723-23: System is not complete for analysis purposes ---------------------------OK ---------------------------
How to resolve?
There are a few issues that cause this error to be displayed. The following are known:
Must review the entire model looking for incomplete components, using the Solid model view feature, look for transparent pipe, typically bends such as the following:
This bend point radius is too large. The bend's Near or Far point would occur outside of the next node point, (ex. B76 above). Or the origin point of a segment is a bend that is not configured with a Near point as shown above (ex. B16)
a. reduce the bend radius so the entire bend can be displayed with the space allowed befor the next node point.
b. Or, select the bend point and press Modify> Convert Point to > choose Point. However, then you will encure another warning message, 90 deg kink in pipe that will need to be addressed.
c. Or, select the bend point and press Modify> Convert Point to > choose Tee, and then add a third segment to complete the tee.
d. Or insert a short pipe segment before the point to provide directionality for the entire bend to be displayed.
See piping and Point tab information below:
why does this cause the E723-23: Error message when trying to run an Analysis?
Answer: See the Paint Tab of the input grid, Notice that there is a Point, Bend, Bend. What is missing or is a mistake?
Please see the following AutoPIPE help section: Help > Contents> Contents Tab> Command Reference> Insert & Modify commands> Component Reference> Bend Points> read this entire page:
.... Unlike other AutoPIPE components, bends cannot be placed in a drawing until its orientation is known....
Again, what is the problem, Run , Bend, Bend, what is missing the next run point to identify the 2nd bend point direction.
Solution, a. enter another run point after the 2nd bend to complete the specification of the 2nd bend TIP, Near, Far, and Mid points. Or, b. convert the 2nd bend point into a run point using the Convert Point to... Run command.
Perform a Model Consistency check on the model looking for the following warning:
W726-6: Near zero length element at following point(s)
AutoPIPE does not like to have pipe lengths that are near Zero length, move or delete the node point that is causing the run length to be near zero length. Perform this step until this warning no longer appears in the model listing report.
Note: For AutoPIPE 09.06.01.xx and lower, use Tools> Model Consistency Check command.
When opening a model from a higher edition with a lower edition (ex. open AutoPIPE Nuclear model with AutoPIPE Standard edition) some features of the higher edition are not available in the lower edition (ex. Pipe code = ASME NB is only available in the Nuclear version and not in Standard or Advanced (Plus) ).
Therefore, check all settings for Tools> model options> General, Edit, and Results. Also review the Input grid for missing data (especially under pipe properties).
Example: the Piping Code could be set to "L" (Piping Code = L) as shown below:
A. Close the model
B. Change the AutoPIPE Edition to Nuclear
C. Now, reopen the model in an AutoPIPE nuclear Edition, the correct piping code will be displayed.
D. Review the model to be correct (i.e. all settings pertinent to a Nuclear model)
A. On the General Model Options Dialog screen select a different piping code that "L"
B. Continue to use AutoPIPE
C. If used, check all previously established settings (i.e. all application setting pertinent to a Nuclear model will have been erased) to ensure are correct for piping code selection.
Always look to the Application Bar to see what version is currently open (i.e. Demo, Standard, Advanced, Nuclear):
