Can OpenPlant Support Engineer (OPSE) export a support directly to AutoPIPE?
At this time there is no direct workflow between AutoPIPE and OpenPlant Support Engineering (OPSE). OPSE is an application which will provide complex design and Modeling of Support for Piping, Structural, Electrical and HVAC Components in an OpenPLANT model environment. Typical workflows are:
1. OpenPlant Support Engineering can be used with referenced i-models from OpenPlant Modeler and structural tools such as ProStructures.
2. OpenPlant Support Engineering can also works in conjunction with OpenPlant Model Server in a component based workflow by referencing out piping components or work breakdown structure elements in order to begin work and then checking in support components upon completion to OpenPlant Model Server. These support objects can then appear in isometrics generated from OpenPlant Isometrics Manager.
Once an OPSE support has become part of the OpenPlant model, it may be exported using the typical workflow interface between OpenPlant and AutoPIPE, or PXF file. AutoPIPE will be able to import the PXF file where any mapping changes can be made as needed.
