User wants to create heat tracing pipeline with two different line styles and both have different line weights. In this example, we will see how to create a multi-line style and how to use it to create custom pipeline.

Launch OpenPlant PID application.
Select desired project file and unit, let’s say here imperial.
Go to Element > Multi_line Styles.
Multi line Styles dialog open, select on Create new multi-line style.
Name the line style, let’s say ‘Heat Traced Pipeline’.
Edit all symbology settings as per requirement (line style, line weight, color, offset) and Save all the settings.
Launch Bentley Class Editor.
Open OpenPlant_PID.01.07 schema.
Supplement with OpenPlant_PID_Supplemental_Imperial.01.07 schema.

Go to Level Manager.
In the Level Manager dialog add a new level named Tracing Pipeline.
