The user wants to add a Weldneck Stub End piping component. This is a combination of a Weldneck Stub End and a Lap Joint Flange piping components that are already available in OPM.
This can be done in three major workflows:
A. Add a new class in OpenPlant 3D schema for the new piping component
1. Launch Class Editor
2. Open the OP3D schema and supplement it with Modeling and Modeling Views schema
3. Search for the Lap Joint Stub End class. Create a copy of this class.
4. Rename it to the new component class (e.g. WELD_NECK_STUB_END_TEST)
5. See following attributes are applied
6. In the Properties tab, search for STUB_THICKNESS and STUB_OUTSIDE_DIAMATER. Change the OpenPlant_Physical_Catalogue_Property_Map for each property to FLNG_TH_M and FLNG_OD_M, respectively.
7. Ensure that the length property is already correctly mapped. You can do this by either adding OpenPlant_Physical_Catalogue_Property_Map custom attribute in this property and value of Property Name to COMP_LEN set accordingly. You could also copy the same custom attribute from the Lap Joint Stub End class Length property.
8. Copy the Calculated ECPropertySpecification custom attribute in Name property from Lap Joint Stub End class
9. Save the schemas.
B. Add WELDNECK STUB END component in Catalog and Specs
1. Open a Catalog (e.g. ASME.mdb) in Access
2. Go to FLANGE table
3. Add a row for the WELDNECK STUB END component. Make sure that it maches the EC_ClassName added in the schema
;4. Save the Catalog
5. Repair SysID of the modified Catalog via Catalog Editor (see Repair Sys IDs (bentley.com))
6. Add the new component in Spec via Spec Generator then Save
C. Add Ports of the New Component
1. Launch OPPA
2. Go to the Workset and select OPM. In the Settings tab, select Component Creation.
3. Go to the component class and add the ports.
4. Save and Exit
1. Launch OPM and select the appropriate workspace/workset
2. In the Standard Preferences, set correct Spec and main size as was added in the Catalog & Spec for the new component
3. Keyin mechaddin place <EC_CLASS> dsc=piping (e.g. mechaddin place WELD_NECK_STUB_END_TEST dsc=piping)
4. Place the component in the design area
If testing was successful, you can then add the component by following:
