1 Introduction


This training course will be taken by all users of the Hull / Outfitting system and provides the grounding for
further training in the AVEVA Marine modelling applications.

With AVEVA Marine 12 Series it is possible to view the model by creating a wide range of views of the ship
model. There are special functions to handle these views and produce the desired drawings rapidly and
accurately.

Once the relevant views are placed in a drawing they can be annotated with further information.
AVEVA Marine 12 Series has powerful text and dimensioning functions and full 2D drafting functionality.
AVEVA Marine 12 Series also has very powerful editing functions. All entities have editable properties, such
as, colour, layer, and line type. Whilst a series of transformations provide all other tools needed to edit the
layout of the drawing.

The basic Marine Drafting functions can also be found in all the AVEVA Marine Hull Design products
(Structural Design, Planar Modelling, Curved Hull, and Plate Nesting).

1.1 Aim

Over the next two days the participants will learn the basic functions to control the graphical view, create hull
symbolic views, outfits views, annotate and dimension the drawings.

1.2 Objectives

2 How AVEVA Marine Can Help You.

The AVEVA Marine System is a Multi-Discipline 3D Modelling System that allows the user to simulate a fully
detailed, full size model.

AVEVA Marine allows the user to see a full colour shaded representation of the model as the design
progresses, adding an unprecedented level of realism to drawing office techniques.

The model can store huge amounts of data referring to position, size, part numbers and geometric
relationships for the various parts of the project. This model becomes a single source of engineering data for
all of the sections and disciplines involved in a design project.

All this information is stored in databases. There are many different output channels from the databases
through which information can be distributed, these range from reports on data stored in the databases, fully
annotated and dimensioned engineering drawings, to full colour shaded 3D walk through capabilities which
allow visualisation of the complete design model.




















Even with the advanced features of AVEVA Marine, the main form of communication between the designer
and those who build the ships remains the drawings. Without engineering drawings the task of shipbuilding
would almost be impossible. To meet this requirement, AVEVA Marine can produce numerous types of
drawings, ranging from complex 3D illustrations to fully dimensioned arrangement drawings and piping
isometrics
All the data in AVEVA Marine design would be of little value without the ability to ensure the quality of the
design information.

3 Getting Started.
Because of its large overall size, AVEVA Marine is subdivided into a number of functional modules. Each
module accesses the databases for a different purpose. To start AVEVA Marine click
Start >All Programs >AVEVA Marine >Design >12.1.SPx >Marine Drafting

After starting the application the following screen will be displayed, for the training project environment use
the following login information as displayed in the screen below, the Password is PHULLFWD (upper case).
In reality the system administrator will set project specific databases/passwords and will advise the users of
these settings when working on real projects. They are selected from the scrollable list menus by clicking

After completing the information in the form click OK.

The Marine Drafting interface is also
accessible from within the Hull
Design modules Planar Modelling,
Curved Modelling, Plate Nesting etc.


Drawings created using the
Outfitting Draft application can be
opened using the Marine Drafting
interface. However, if any changes
are made to the document it will not
be possible to re-open the document
in the Outfitting Draft application.

The Marine Drafting interface is displayed. The status of Toolbars and Explorers which are displayed are
saved when exiting the application and may vary to those displayed below:

3.2.1 Toolbar Tips

The function of each button of the toolbar can be displayed by placing the cursor over the appropriate
button.





Refer to Appendix C for a list of the available keyboard shortcuts


3.2.2 Viewing the Toolbars

The toolbars are displayed by clicking the right mouse button in the menu bar area of the screen, then
clicking the appropriate toolbar text. A check box will be added to show the toolbars currently displayed.


There are numerous tool bars available which can be toggled on/off depending
upon the task being performed. It is not recommended to include all toolbars for
general use as this will take up valuable workspace. The following are the
recommended settings for this training course

For a complete listing of the toolbars that are available to the user refer to
Appendix B Toolbar Listing






















3.3 Marine Drafting Explorers

There are four explorers available to the user in the Marine Drafting application:-
Design Explorer this shows the hierarchy of the Design World present in the current MDB
Manufacturing Explorer - this shows the hierarchy of Manu World present in the current MDB.
Draft Explorer - this shows the hierarchy of the Draft World present in the current MDB
Marine Drawing Explorer this shows the hierarchy of the current drawing with respect to the
various views and the drawing form.
There are settings to adjust the general set up and presentation of the explorers.
E.g. show TUBI elements within the Design explorer. Select

AVEVA Solutions Limited and its subsidiaries.

These explorers are accessed by selecting View >Explorers >Design Explorer/Manufacturing
Explorer/Draft Explorer/Drawing Explorer from the application pull-down menu.



The function of Manufacturing Explorer is not
relevant to this course. It is covered in TM-2106
AVEVA Marine (12.1) Hull Detailed Design
Production Information.










The use of each of these explorers will be covered in more detail in the relevant sections of this guide.


3.4 Storage of Drawings

All drawings created within in the Marine Drafting application are stored in a Registry which is in turn
owned by a Department. This can be easily seen by checking the hierarchy of the Draft Explorer.


The Departments and their members are stored in PADD
databases. The allocation of the Departments to the relevant
databases is an administration task, but the general user should
have some knowledge of this to understand the limitations that
are imposed.

The setting up of the Drawing Types, Departments and
Registries is covered in TM-2111 AVEVA Marine (12.1)
Marine Drafting Admin.

Marine Drafting adopts the common philosophy that is used
throughout the AVEVA Marine applications. The User must be a
member of the Team that owns the database.

This means that logging in as a different user might result in
previously created drawings not being available.


Navigate to the DEPT General shown in the Draft Explorer.

The owning database can be queried by keying in q dbname in
the Command Window.

From the Admin application it can be seen that the
HULLFWDDPADD1 database is owned by the
HULLDRAFTFWD Team.


















The PHULLFWD user is a member of
the owning HULLDRAFTFWD Team.



















The access rights to any database in the MDB can be determined by keying in STATUS in the Command
Window. This will list all the databases and suffix each with R or RW for Read and Read/Write access
respectively.

The name of the selected Backing Sheet will then be
added to the New Drawing form as shown.

At this stage if no name has been specified for the new
drawing. The drawing will initially be called UNTITLED
until the first time the user saves the drawing, at this point
the user can specify the desired drawing name if not
already defined.

If the user attempts to key in a drawing name that already
exists an Error alert form is presented to the user.

Click the OK button on the Error alert form and the system will return
to the previous form allowing the specification of a unique drawing
name.



Clicking the OK button on the New Drawing form will open the new drawing with the selected drawing form.


It is possible to work without a drawing form if desired. Simply leave the Backing Sheet text field empty on
the New Drawing form. This will allow the user to draw and create views without the confines of a drawing
border.


If at any time the user wishes to add/exchange a drawing form, this is achieved by
the selecting Insert >Drawing For from the application pull-down menu.

The user will then be presented with a form allowing the selection of the drawing

3.6 Functions and Operations

The Marine Drafting application has a workflow using functions and operations. Normal use consists of
beginning or initiating functions/operations, executing them, then ending or completing in order to move on
to the next operation/function.

Consider the function Insert >Line

This can be accessed from the application pull-down menu or from the Geometry
toolbar.







Once the Insert >Line function has been invoked an operation can be started to
define the type of line to be inserted, in this case Line: Two Points. This operation is
started from the Geometry Line toolbar as shown.



To complete an operation or accept a selection, click the Operation Complete button or use
Return/Enter on the keyboard.

To exit a function and quit any operations in progress, click the Quit button. or Esc on the keyboard.

As many drawing operations will be repeated, most operations behave in a looped fashion so that after one
operation the system is immediately ready to perform the same operation again. Use the Quit button or Esc
key to leave this loop.

For example:-

Drawing poly line Ready for next poly line Ready for new function

be repeated, indicate opposite corners / select view numbers, for each view required.


3.7.9 Display a Predefined Window


Displays the predefined windows on the drawing,
allowing the user to make the desired selection.










Select a window number on
the Windows toolbar or
indicate the window on
screen.












For example, selecting window 5 in this
case displays the title block.




If the Windows toolbar is visible and the user is aware of the window definition it is possible to select
the windows by clicking the corresponding number on the toolbar directly.

To make this easier the user may adopt a philosophy of allocating numbers to certain projections or
positions relative to the drawing form, i.e. Plan View or top left =Window1.

3.9.2 Defaults

To view / edit the defaults for the current drafting session select
Format >Default from the application pull-down menu.

The system will display a menu containing all the current
default settings.

A particular setting can be selected and edited, affecting the
current drafting session only.


It is also possible to store the changes made to the defaults but
this should not be attempted by a user unless with relevant
authorisation. The setting and maintenance of the master
defaults is considered a task for the system administrator.

The default keyword TEXT_STD_HEIGHT is used to
change the STANDARD text height, not the model text
height
The setting of the Default File keywords is covered in
TM-2111 AVEVA Marine (12.1) Marine Drafting Admin.


3.9.3 Drawing Scale

Marine Drafting have one scale as such, instead each view within the drawing has its own
scale. As an example of this, main sections, elevations and plan views could be displayed at 1:50 while
detail views could be shown at 1:5 or 1:10 etc.

For views created using the modelled elements each view in the drawing is generated by the system and it
is therefore very easy to modify the scale of each view. Therefore the initial scale is not a major concern as it
can be modified at any time.

However if the occasion arises where a new view is to be created using traditional drafting methods then it is
important to set the correct scale before constructing the view.

To start a new view with a new drawing scale select Tools >Subpicture >Current...
from the application pull-down menu or click the Current Subpicture button on the
Subpicture toolbar.


The system will display the current drawing scale in the Message Window and
display the Current Subpicture form as shown.



Click 4. New View and the system will display the following dialogue
box:



AVEVA Marine (12.1)
Marine Drafting TM-2100


33
www.aveva.com
Copyright 1994 to current year.
AVEVA Solutions Limited and its subsidiaries.
The system will automatically display the scale set in the defaults or of the current view. Modify the scale as
required and click the OK button. It is not necessary to type the full string, entering 100 has the same effect
as entering 1:100.


The system will redisplay the original menu and the Message Window
will contain information regarding the new drawing scale created. Any
geometry created will now appear at the new scale.



If it becomes necessary to add geometry to an existing view it is important to make that view current.
Making the view current ensures the correct scale is applied to any additional geometry added to a
view.

3.9.4 The Title Block


Marine Drafting drawing forms are created using numerous drawing form rules that allow predefined
attributes to be added to the drawing. This makes it possible to fill in the title block for the drawing via an
input form. This ensures all title blocks appear the same as it standardised text style and text height.

To complete the title block via the input form select File >Propertie from the application pull-down
menu.

The system will display the File Properties form
as shown.


Fill in the fields relevant to the particular drawing
form and click the OK button.

The system will automatically update the fields in
the title block with the information submitted in the
form.

(For alternative forms select
UPDATE_DRAW_INFO_FORM Key in 1 / 2 or 3)

Alternative form representation can be
selected by altering the
UPDATE_DRAW_INFO_FORM keyword to
the permissible values of 1, 2 or 3.





The creation and maintenance of the drawing forms is covered in TM-2111 AVEVA Marine (12.1)

4 Viewing the Ship Model

This chapter involves working with an existing model, which has been created by the designers and
modellers at AVEVA Solutions Ltd. The modelling functions are covered in other training courses.

4.1 The Marine Drafting View Concept

views of a section of the ship. An example is shown below.


When a Marine Drafting drawing
is plotted the views appear just as
any 2D drafting output would
appear. However the main
differences and advantages of
Marine Drafting views become
apparent when a drawing is open
on the screen.

live
window into the 3D model. Each
view is a user-defined slice
through the model and is capable
of displaying all objects in the
model at any given time.






4.2 Adding Hull Items to a Model View (Insert Model)

Firstly a drawing must be open to which the view can be added.

To add a new model projection or view to a drawing select Insert >
Model from the application pull-down menu or click the Insert Model
button on the File toolbar.



The Model Selections form will then appear.

There are 3 main steps to adding a model projection to a drawing:-

1. Select how to add model objects to the workspace.
2. Collect the type of model objects to add to workspace.
3. Define the view to which the collected objects are to be added.

1. First in the View scrollable list select New as
the way to add objects to the workspace.

New: Will create a new view containing the
selected objects.

All: Will add the selected objects to all views in the
workspace, if no view exists a new one will be
created.

Single: Allows the user to select a single view to
add the objects to.

Multiple: Will add objects to multiple views selected
by the user.

Existing: Will add objects to all existing views.




Properties: Allows the user to choose the properties of the view eg. Wireline or Hiddenline etc. These
properties effect all view types, plan / section / elevation and 3-D. This can also be determined later in the
workflow.

2a. Select the Plane Panel check box as the type of model objects to add. This will ensure that only plane
panels are selected in the selection process.


2b. Key in the name of the model object to be
select, wildcard is accepted.

Multiple wild cards may be used separated by a
comma e.g. F108-BHD*, F108-LP*. If all the
panels in a block should be included use the
Block/Zone box and give the name of the block
e.g. F108


2c. If the user is confident about the name that has been entered, click the All button to automatically select
all objects. Alternatively use the Verify button as shown to display a list of selected objects to be presented.

Cancel will return you to the previous form.


After the system has searched for the requested objects the number
collected is displayed in the Model Selection form.



2d. The user will need to select a projection for the view, click the
Projection button to select one of the options from the form.








2e. Clicking the View Properties button will open the View
Properties form as shown. When only adding hull elements it is
only the View Type options that are applicable. This can be set
to the values shown.


A full explanation of the View Types is covered later in this chapter.

The Style values are only applicable to Outfitting elements


If it is the intention to slice the view at a later date then the Wireline and Wireline Hidden Line options
should not be used. Refer to the Creating a Sliced View section for more details on this function.

3. Click the OK button on the Model Selection form to add the elements to the workspace

With the cursor, place the new model projection in the workspace. Only the

The model objects will appear in
the system designated colours.
(Each component has its own
colour)
















4.2.1 Drag and Drop to a Model View from Design Explorer

An alternative method to the use of the Model Selection form is to drag and drop the elements directly from
the Design Explorer. This is very useful for adding groups of elements that have a common owner.

Select the element from the Design Explorer, right click and drag into
the drawing canvas.


The view options will be displayed, as shown.
These are the same options that are available
from the Model Selection form covered
previously.



If the user drags the cursor over an existing view the options will
be slightly different with the addition of the Selected View option.












Selecting New View will present the Choose
Projection form.



Click the View Properties button to determine the View
Type and Style as before.

Select the Universal Hidden Line and
/TT/DRA/PRJ /REPR/GEN/BASIC options for
the View Type and Style respectively and
click the OK button.

This view contains outfit elements so
the correct Style is important.



There are numerous Styles supplied with the MTP/MAS projects, these are only examples for the users to
experiment with. It is expected that the system administrator will copy/rename the useful Styles and make
any necessary additions to suit the requirements of the customer.

The creation and maintenance of the Style Libraries is covered in TM-2111 AVEVA Marine (12.1)
Marine Drafting Admin.

The Choose Projection form will then reappear allowing
the user to select the project, in this case the plan view.









As shown previously the user must then place the first element in the hierarchy on the
drawing.

When placed click (Operation Complete) to add the rest of the model objects.

4.3 Adding Outfit/Hull Items to a Model View (Search Utility)

Elements can also be added a model view using the Search Utility. Select View >Addins >Search Utility
from the application pull-down menu. The following Search form is displayed:

Search For:
Name Contains: Is a filter to allow names
of items to be used to limit search results,
wildcards supported.

Element Type: Is a filter to allow specific
types of items to be used to restrict the
search results. [ALL] may be used if all
elements are to be included. However it is
more likely to apply specific type such as:
EQUI, PIPE, STRU, HVAC, CWAY,
HPANEL, CPANEL etc.

Search Filters:
Beneath Element: Using /* indicates the
top level world element will be used. If a
node is selected on the Design Explorer
and the CE (current element) button is
clicked, the name of that element will
automatically populate this box. In this
case only elements below this level will be
searched for and displayed in the results.

In Database: Set to Design using
scrollable list when searching to add
elements to a view.
Modified:
The option to Filter by modified date and
Show Modified Date on Output.

Within Volume:
In Volume:
Of Elemement: If a node is selected in
the Design Explorer and the CE (current
element) button is clicked, the name of
that element will automatically populate
this box, only elements within the volume
of the selected element will be searched
for and displayed in the results.

Explicit Volume: Lower and upper limits of a volume may be given to limit the search results within that
volume.

The Wholly Within radio button results in only items totally within the given volume being added to the
search results. The Wholly & Partially Within results in items totally within the given volume and those that
intersect / pass through being added to the search results.

Attribute Fillters:
Additional attribute filters can also be applied, for example it may be necessary to search for all pipes
belonging to a particular system.

Saved Searches:
The defined searches can also be stored.
For additional information on the general use of the Search Utility refer to Appendix A.

The form provides a very flexible method of collecting elements, in the following example all Hull Panels,
Pipe and Equipment in the MDB that is wholly & partially within the volume of Hull Block F204 will be
collected.












When the required filters have been
set click the Search button.






The Search Results will be displayed as shown. It is possible
to highlight the elements using the standard Shift/Ctrl keys,
while Ctrl +A will select all.

Once the selection has been made
the user can drag and drop directly
from the Search Results using the
same method as from the Design
Explorer previously covered.


The Search Results remain available during the current
session. If the form is closed it can be accessed by
selecting View >Addins >Search Results from the
application pull-down menu.


Alternatively, the user can select Add to Insert
Model from the right mouse button context sensitive
menu. The Model Selection is displayed and can be
used to add the selected elements to new or existing
views.

The presence of the drag and drop from the
Search Results means this method is less likely
to be used. It has been shown for information.



Checking the Display Search Results in Separate Tab check
box on the Search Utility form, results in additional tabs being
created on the Search Results form. This allows the user to
access multiple search results by selecting alternative tabs.

Click (Operation Complete) to
complete the operation.





4.3.2 Copy Model Objects from an Existing View.

Once a view has been created often it is quicker to copy the objects from one view to another rather than
use view creation methods shown so far in this guide. To do this select Tools >Model >Copy from the
application pull-down menu.

The user must consider whether the whole view or individual elements are to be copied:-
If the whole view is being copied then any element in the view can be indicated and Level 1
selected from the Subpicture Level toolbar.














If individual elements are being copied the user must indicate the correct element in the view and
Level 2 selected from the Subpicture Level toolbar. In this case EQUI MPS4001, the main engine.













AVEVA Marine (12.1)

AVEVA Solutions Limited and its subsidiaries.

This selection phase can be continued to collect numerous elements.

Click (Operation Complete) to complete the selection procedure.

The user can then indicate an existing view to copy objects to or click
(options) to create a new view.





Clicking the (options) button will result in the Choose Projection form being presented to the user.












Alternatively, indicate an existing view to copy the select element(s) to that view. In this case EQUI
MPS4001, the main engine.

4.4 View Types

All of the view creation methods require the user to select a suitable View Type.






The following is an indication of
the type of result that can be
expected.



4.4.1 Wireline


This produces a conventional wireline view showing all
element and points. This option is the quickest to
generate the view graphics.

This View Type cannot be used if the outfitting elements
are to be sliced

The examples shown here are PIPE 403-LOS_002
belonging to ZONE 403-PIPE, EQUI LOS1005 &
LOS1006 belonging to ZONE 403-EQUIP.






4.4.2 Modelled Wireline


This produces slightly greater realism by blending the
intersection of primitives, but without incurring the
computational overheads of removing hidden lines.

This is best indicated on the valve detail


AVEVA Marine (12.1)
Marine Drafting TM-2100


47
www.aveva.com
Copyright 1994 to current year.
AVEVA Solutions Limited and its subsidiaries.

4.4.3 Wireline Hidden Line


This produces an image where hidden lines are removed
from individual significant elements (EQUI, SUBS etc),
but not from items hidden behind them, i.e. the valve
does not hide any pump elements

This View Type cannot be used if the outfitting elements
are to be sliced

4.4.4 Local Hidden Line


This produces an image where hidden lines are removed.
Where two or more elements overlap the elements
overlapping are shown in wireline, i.e. where the valve
over laps the nozzle on the equipment.

This representation differs from Wireline Hidden Line
because individual significant elements are shown
properly so that intersections between primitive and holes
are correctly shown, i.e. the valve hand wheel.



4.4.5 Global Hidden Line


This produces a view where all hidden lines are removed.

AVEVA Marine (12.1)
Marine Drafting TM-2100


48
www.aveva.com
Copyright 1994 to current year.
AVEVA Solutions Limited and its subsidiaries.

4.4.6 Universal Hidden Line


This produces an image where all hidden lines are
removed (as in Global Hidden Line), but in addition
intersection lines between significant elements (e.g.
EQUI and STRU, SUBS and BRAN) are generated.

The difference can be seen where the two pipe
branches intersect

This option is the slowest to generate the view
graphics.




4.4.7 Changing View Type

It is possible to change a view type within the drawing, from the Marine
Drawing Explore.

This is performed by selecting the view in the explorer, the view will be
highlighted in the drawing and from the right mouse button context
sensitive menu selecting the Properties option.

The View Properties form will appear showing the current setting of the
view. Select View type and Style required and click the OK button.

4.5 Creating a Sliced View

Slicing a view creates a view that is limited between two points perpendicular to the plane of the view. The
use of slicing requires the presence of a second view with a different projection to allow the user to indicate
the limits of the slice.

In the example shown a plan view is being sliced to show the pipe work around the main engine just above
the tank top. The section view has been used to pick the two points.

To perform the slice select Tools >Model View >Slice from the application pull-down menu.



Indicate the view to be sliced, the plan view in this
case.












An aid line is added to all views with perpendicular
projections, the section view in this case.

The position of the aid line is determined by the
initial indication on the view being sliced. This can
be very beneficial when slicing complicated views.

the two points that the slice will be between on the
other view (plan view)









The two points that define the slice can then be
indicated. The slicing procedure will commence
upon indication of the second point.






The point definition used here is via a simple cursor indication. It is possible to specify the positions with
complete accuracy using the Geometry Point toolbar or right mouse button. Refer to the Points
section later in this guide for more information.

AVEVA Marine (12.1)

AVEVA Solutions Limited and its subsidiaries.


The resulting plan view shows the view sliced
between the two points.















Indicating this view for slicing again will result in
the existing slice points appearing on all views
with perpendicular projections.

The slice values are also stated in the Message
Window.











Clicking (Operation Complete) at this stage will remove the slicing from the view.

The Slice function is not intended for use with a Wireline or Wireline Hidden Line View Types.

The result of slicing the view is very similar to the Before/Behind boxes shown on the Limits tab of the
Create View form , refer to the section Creating a Symbolic View.

4.6 Updating the Views Model Data

It is common for existing drawings to need to be updated due to changes in the model. Currently there are
two methods of doing this at the view level which work in very similar ways, but there are some subtle
differences

4.6.1 Update Design

From the application pull-down menu select Tools >Model View >Update >Update Design.











The user can then indicate the view to update or click the ALL
button on the Buttons toolbar to update all views in the drawing.




4.6.2 Exchange Model View

Alternatively, select Tools >Model View >Exchange from the application pull-down menu.








The user can then indicate the view to update or click the ALL
button on the Buttons toolbar to update all views in the drawing.



The user is then prompted to select the discipline that should be exchanged or ALL.


Another form is the displayed that is specific to Hull elements only.


In this case select 1. From Model.

Option 2.Defaults is covered in the
following section Hull Model Draw
Codes.

4.7 Updating Individual Elements (Exchange Model)

Individual model elements can be updated by selecting
Tools >Model >Exchange from the application pull-
down menu or by clicking the Exchange Model button on
the File toolbar.



The user can then indicate the specific element to be updated. In this case it is
a pipe which is highlighted in the view.











The user is then presented with a Question form to
confirm the selection. Click the Yes button to
continue.




If the element selected is a Hull element then another form is displayed that is specific to Hull elements only.

In this case select 1. From Model.

Option 2.Defaults is covered in the following section Hull Model Draw
Codes.



If the element is present in more then one view yhe user can then specify
whether the update is to be performed on All views, to Confirm one by
one or Only Indicated.



The Confirm one by one option will cycle through every
view that contains the selected element and require the
user to confirm whether the update is to be performed for
that specific view by clicking the Yes or No buttons on
the Question form.

example.











To change the model draw codes select

The draw codes can be changed by
accessing the tree on the right of the
property sheet.



When adding a model view the new

4.9 Validate

Validate is used to track and optionally exchange all "out-of-date" models in the current drawing. The
validation tool will also track and optionally remove all models in the drawing that are not found in the data
bank.

Select Tools >Model View >Validate from the
application pull-down menu.

The system prompts the user to indicate a model view to
validate. The user can validate all the views in the current
drawing by clicking All. The Validate Model View form is
displayed with a list of possible out-of-date models. The
user can choose what to exchange or, if preferred, select
All of the models in the list.


If the user chooses a single element and clicks the OK
button to exchange that element. The list will be updated
with the previously selected item removed allowing the
user to repeat the procedure.

Click (Operation Complete) to complete the procedure.


If there are no models in the indicated view that are possibly out of date,
the system displays the Information alert message: 'All models in the
model view(s) are valid' as shown.

4.10 Creating a Symbolic View

To create a Symbolic View a drawing must be active in the Marine
Drafting session. The symbolic views are true cuts from the model
and represent structure that has been modelled at the given plane.

Select Symbolic View > from the application pull-down menu.
Curved Hull views are covered in more detail in
training guide TM-2104 Hull Detailed Design-
Curved Hull Modelling.

The resulting menu is made up of five separate tabs, Plane, Limits, Select, Outfit and Misc.

4.10.1 The Plane Tab

Name: Assign a name to the view. The name used should be
unique within the drawing.

It is important that a name assigned to an existing object is not
used as the name of the view. Therefore never use a drawing
name, a panel name or a block name as the name of a view.
The views will automatically be give unique names when
opening the form, for all exercises the default names will be
used.

Scale 1: Controls the scale of the text and symbols in the resultant
view.

This value does not control the overall scale of the resultant
view this should be manipulated by the use of the transform
sub-picture function.


4.10.1.1 Plane Options

X - The resulting view will be a transverse section, typically on a frame. If this option is activated the
X: Origin field will become active, enter the desired value i.e. FR121 for a section at frame 121.
Y - The resulting view will be a longitudinal elevation. If this option is activated the Y: Origin field will
become active and the desired value should be entered i.e. LP0 for an elevation on centreline.
Z - The resulting view will be a plan view. If this option is activated the Z: Origin field will become
active and the desired value should be entered i.e. 7000 for a plan view at 7000 above base.
3 Points - The plane of the resulting view will be defined by three points. If this option is activated all
9 fields will become active and the user should define an Origin, U-axis and V-axis by giving an X,
Y and Z value for each. This option is used to define non-orthogonal views.
Panel - The plane of the resulting view will be defined by an existing panel. If this option is activated
the Name: field will become active and the name of the desired panel should be entered. If the
panel to be used for the plane is the starboard instance of a reflected panel then the Reflect check
box should be checked. The Name: field will default to Panel, which means the plane for the plates
in the main panel will be used to define the view. However it is possible to select a particular
Bracket, Stiffener or Flange to further define the view. If one of these options is selected the relevant
Component No: should also be added so the system knows which Bracket, Stiffener or Flange to
use to define the view. The Only Current Panel check box should be checked if the user desired
only the named panel to appear in the resulting view.

Marine Drafting TM-2100


56
www.aveva.com
Copyright 1994 to current year.
AVEVA Solutions Limited and its subsidiaries.
Curve - The plane of the resulting view will be defined by an existing Hull curve. If this option is
activated the Name: field will become active and the name of the desired curve should be entered.
RSO - The plane of the resulting view will be defined by an existing Reference Surface Object. If this
option is activated the Name: field will become active and the name of the desired RSO should be
entered.

RSO (Reference Surface Objects) are created in Initial Design and are used to define
compartmentation for the vessel to be used in Naval Architecture Calcula
also be defined in the hull applications.

Looking: For: The resulting view will look from Aft Fore
Aft: The resulting view will look from Fore Aft
PS: The resulting view will look from Starboard Port
SB: The resulting view will look from Port Starboard
Top: The resulting view will look from Bottom Top
Bot: The resulting view will look from Top Bottom

The Symbolic View default directions for views are as follows:
Sections - Looking aft
Plans - Looking down
Elevations - Looking to port

Pick: If the current drawing already contains views then it is possible to select one of these and the system
will fill out the fields in the form to match those used to create the selected view. After the form has been
populated it is possible to change the view name and create a new view using the selected views values. To
get values from an existing view click the Pick button. The system will prompt . Use the
cursor to indicate the desired view in the drawing. The system will return to the Create View form having
filled in the fields with the values from the indicated view.

Replace Existing View: If this check box is checked the system will replace an existing view instead of
creating a new one. If the Pick button has been used the system will automatically replace the view
previously selected when the form is submitted. If the Pick button was not used the system will prompt the
user to select a view to be replaced.


4.10.2 The Limits Tab

Limits: Defines the extents of the resulting view. If all fields
are left blank the resulting view will have the maximum
extents.

If a plan view (Z plane) or section (X plane) is being created
it is possible to click the Portside or Starboard buttons and
limit the view to that particular side of the ship. These
buttons are not applicable to elevations.

The Any button will return the form so the full ship is
included in the view, i.e. both Port and Starboard.

Depth:
Define the depth of the view before and behind the view
plane. This is also relevant for any Outfitting elements that
maybe included in the view.

The selection of the View Type is important for Outfitting in order for the slice to be successful at the
Depth values provided. The Wireline and Wireline Hidden Line options should not be used.

The Restriction check box is available when a restricted view is being used. When checked the view retains
any restrictions placed on it. If unchecked the view reverts back to the original unrestricted view state.

4.10.3 The Select Tab

Design View:
The resulting view will be based on the design structure of the
model i.e. Blocks, Panels, Shell profiles, Seams and Butts, etc.

Selecting this option will result in all fields in the Shell and Planar
menus remaining active, while the Assemblies field will remain
inactive.

Assembly View:
The resulting view will be based on the assembly structure of the
model. Selecting this option will result in all fields in the Shell and
Planar menus becoming inactive, while the Assemblies field will
become active.

GA View:




4.10.3.1 Shell Options

Curve:
Existing: If a curve has already been created and stored (using the project defined prefix) at the
exact plane of the view to be created then the system will use this curve in the resulting view.
By Name: If this option is selected the Name field will be activated and the name of any previously
stored curve can be given. This curve will then be used in the resulting view.
Cut: The system will cut a new curve in the plane of the view to be created.
None: No hull curves will be in the resulting view.

Seams: If this check box is checked the system will automatically add any seams/butts crossing the plane of
the resulting view.

Profiles: If this check box is checked the system will automatically add any shell profiles crossing the plane
of the resulting view or in the plane of the resulting view.

Shell thickness: If this check box is checked the system will show the thickness of shell plates as two lines.

4.10.3.2 Planar Options

Automatic Selection: If this check box is checked the system will automatically add all relevant planar
panels to the resulting view.

Draw Planeviews: If this check box is checked the system will display planar panels lying in the same plane
as the resulting view. If the box is not checked the system will omit these panels from the view.

If this box is checked the system will automatically add all relevant Reference Surface Objects
to the resulting view.

Draw as Plate: Controls the behaviour of the system when interactive selections are made in the resulting
view. If this radio button is on the system will ignore any sub-components in a plate, e.g. if a hole was
indicated the system would ignore the hole and highlight the plate it belonged to. If this button is off the
system works at the lowest level component and will therefore recognise holes, cutouts, notches, etc.

Draw as Panels: Controls the behaviour of the system when interactive selections are made in the resulting
view. If this radio button is on the system will ignore any sub-components in a panel, e.g. if a plate was
indicated the system would ignore the plate and highlight the panel it belonged to. If this button is off the
system works at the lowest level component and will therefore recognise plates, stiffeners, brackets, etc.

Draw as Blocks: Controls the behaviour of the system when interactive selections are made in the resulting
view. If this radio button is on the system will ignore any sub-components in a block, e.g. if a panel was
indicated the system would ignore the panel and highlight the block it belonged to. If this button is off the
system works at the lowest level component and will therefore recognise Panels, plates, stiffeners, brackets.

Draw Intersections: If this check box is checked the system will display all planar panels crossing the plane
of the resulting view. If the box is not checked the system will omit these panels from the resulting view.

Blocks: Key in the name of a specific Block to be included in the view. Check the Exclude check box to
omit a Block from the view.

4.11 Recreate an Existing Symbolic View.

If a view already exists on a drawing it is possible to update it with the
very latest model information by recreating it. This instructs the system
to interrogate the model and update any changes to objects already in
the view and add any new model objects.

Select Symbolic View >Planar Hull View >Recreate from the
application pull-down menu. The system will prompt . Either indicate a desired view to
recreate or use the All button to recreate all planar views on the drawing.
This option does not handle Model Views instead the Exchange or Update options must be used.


4.12 Modify an Existing Symbolic View.

If a view already exists on a drawing it is possible to display the input menus used to create it, modify them,
and regenerate the view as required.

Select Symbolic View >Planar Hull View >Section from the application pull-down menu.

From the Create View form check the Replace existing
view check box then click the Pick button

The system will then prompt the user to ,

4.17 Introduction to Subpictures

When a view is created it will display model objects which will consist of components.

Each view and its component parts will belong to what is called a subpicture.
Subpictures consist of up to 3 levels:
View The complete view as created by Symbolic View or Model Views.
Subview This is the individual object, i.e PIPE, EQUI, HPANEL etc. Obviously there may be
numerous subviews owned by a view.
Component This is the individual part of the object, i.e. flange, valve, stiffener, plate etc.

To manipulate the subpictures in the drawing the levels are numbered as indicated below:-
View Level 1
Subview Level 2
Component Level3

Copyright 1994 to current year.
AVEVA Solutions Limited and its subsidiaries.

4.18 The Drawing Structure


























Each level of the subpicture can be manipulated as a group; this means they can be moved and edited as
one and can be stored and added to drawings as separate entities.
4.19 Current subpicture.

During normal use of the system there will always be a current subpicture. Any new geometry, text, etc., will
belong to this current subpicture and its scale will be the set by the subpicture.

The function Tools >Subpicture >Current controls the current subpicture.

The following options are displayed:

Existing component: Select (with cursor) an existing
subpicture to edit or add to.

New subpicture (auto): Create a new subpicture
dependent on next selection. (level 2 if geometry is
indicated, level 3 if a model object is indicated).

New subpicture (manual): Create a new subpicture, the
user defines the level by indicating the owner. If the owner is
at level 2 then a level 3 subpicture created and so on.

New View: Will create a new level 1 view with a user-defined drawing scale.

Automatic: Will automatically select a subpicture for new entities, based on the closest entity (next
selection) or connected entity i.e. nodes on contour belong to the same subpicture as the contour.
This means all geometry drawn will be to the correct scale, i.e. same as subpicture.

The most common use of this function is to make an existing subpicture current so that something can be
added to it, i.e. text, geometry etc.

4.19.1 Make an existing subpicture current

When adding elements, e.g., text, to a drawing containing multiple views, the subpicture with which the
elements are to be associated must be selected as the current subpicture before adding the elements.

Select Tools >Subpicture >Current from the application pull-down menu or
select the Current Subpicture button on the Subpicture toolbar. The Current
Subpicture menu is displayed:



Select Existing component then indicate an existing subpicture. CP
(cursor position)

View the Message Window to check the
status





Care must be taken when considering the hierarchy of the subpicture structure. Adding text and
geometry to a component will result in these elements being removed if the owning sub-view object is
exchanged, deleted or updated.

4.20 Create New View (Level 1)

To create a new subpicture, select one of the New options from the form

To create a new view (Level 1) with the default scale, click the 2 New subpicture (manual)

Click Operation Complete to make a new view.

To create a new view with a new scale use, New View

Key in the desired drawing scale e.g. 100

4.21 Create New Subview (Level 2)

To create a new subview (Level 2) select, 2 New subpicture (manual)

There must be an existing subpicture.

Indicate an existing subpicture (Level1) and choose Level 1

To create a new component (Level 3) is with option 2 New subpicture (manual)

There must be an existing subpicture.

Indicate an existing subview (Level2) and choose Level 2


View the Message Window to check the status.



4.23 Transforming a Subpicture

The appearance of a Subpicture can be changed using a transformation. These include moving, scaling and
rotating.

A Subpicture can be transformed on any of its three levels hence the importance of splitting and
regrouping. See section entitled Re-use of Subpictures.

To transform a Subpicture select Modify >Transform>Subpicture from the
application pull-down or click the Transform Subpicture button on the Subpicture
toolbar

Select the subpicture to be transformed.

Choose a level using the Subpicture Level tool bar.

1. View.
2. Subview.
3. Component.

The subpicture is highlighted. It can now simply be dragged
to a new position or rotated after clicking (Options).

All of the transformation options are available.

After the subpicture is moved to the desired location click
(Operation Complete).



In reality the above is a bad example of a transformation because this will be undone if the Hull Panel is
exchanged or updated. Also the drawing does not give an accurate reflection of the modelled elements.

4.23.1 Ways to Transform.

When an entity is selected for transformation, the Transform toolbar will be displayed.






When transforming it is important to look at the Message Window
to see what the system is expecting. It must say 'Choose
transformation' before the Transform toolbar options can be
used.

The most commonly used transformations when laying out views in a drawing are Scale, a combination of
Move Two Positions and either Lock U or Lock V, to align the node points of either the base lines or
centrelines of two views. However all options on the Transform toolbar have been shown here some of
which are more applicable for geometry.

Scale: Key in the absolute scale of the subpicture i.e. key in 25 (scale 1:25) Click the OK button, OC.

Move Delta: Key in an offset value to move the subpicture, i.e. 100 U, 100 N


Move two Positions: Select a point relative to the element, then a new point to where the reference
point is to be moved.

1. Select a reference point relative to the element,
2. Then a new point where the reference point is to move.














Rotate Delta: Key in an angle for the element to rotate by. (It will rotate around a predefined centre,
+ve =anticlockwise).

Rotate two positions: Rotate by two reference lines both fixed at the centre of
rotation.


Rotate predefined angle: Rotate by 45, 90, 180 and -90 degrees respectively.



Mirror: Mirror around the horizontal or vertical axes or parallel to a line.

Parallel: Transform an entity so an edge is parallel and a distance
from another straight line.
1. Select a segment on the item to transform
2. Select a segment to be parallel to
3. Key in the distance from this segment.


Four positions:
1. Transform by defining an axis between two positions
2. Then a new position for this axis (two more positions)
























Same as: Transform the same as existing Subpicture; scale rotation and mirroring are accounted
for


Along curve: Will transform an entity such that it will
follow the path of a curve.

curve i.e. on the curve.



4. Indicate what part of this line is to be on the curve
( for start).



5. Click to complete.




Lock V: If this is clicked before making a transformation the vertical component will be locked and
only the rotation or horizontal position can be changed.

Lock U: If this is clicked before making a transformation the horizontal component will be locked and
only the rotation or vertical position can be changed.

Change centre of rotation (symmetry): By default a centre of rotation at the centre of the
circumscribing rectangle is used for rotating transformations. This function can be used to move the
centre of rotation and the point of symmetry for mirror functions.

1. Select a new position for the centre of rotation using point functions.
Press operation complete.
2. Continue with rotate transformation, now the centre of rotation will be as defined by user.











Toggle form detection: Usually the drawing form is undetectable when performing a transformation.

4.26 Re-use of Subpictures

All subpictures may be stored on a databank and later added to a drawing. They will be stored on the
subpicture databank (defined by the logical SBD_PICT). In order to save a particular subpicture, it may be
necessary to split or regroup a drawing into several subpictures.

4.26.1 To split level 1. (Create new view)

Select Tools >Subpicture >Split from the application
pull-down menu or click the Split subpicture button on the
Subpicture toolbar.








Select a subpicture. Choose level 1 as the level to be split.
This means a new level 1 will be created.

Select how to split the geometry from the options:

Auto Let the system create a separate owner for each
entity selected.
Subordinate Create a new owner for the subordinate (other
Subpicture on drawing with lower level) entities
selected.
Geometry Create a new owner for the geometry selected.
Polygon (CUT) Create a new owner for the geometry selected by
an enclosing polygon/rectangle.
Area (CUT) Create a new owner for the geometry selected by
an enclosing general area.
Set NO CUT Toggle CUT/NOCUT feature. If cut is set,
geometry intersecting the polygon/general area
will be included in the split. If NOCUT is set only the geometry completely inside the
polygon/area will be included.

In this case a group of entities will be selected by surrounding them with a polygon. Select 6 Set NOCUT
followed by 4 Polygon (NOCUT) draw a polygon around the entities. Once the polygon is defined the
capture and splitting will need to be confirmed. (Options to toggle polygon or rectangle)

















Polygon to select the
geometry to split
Clicking the Options button will toggle between a
rectangle or polygon to aid capture on complicated
drawings.
AVEVA Marine (12.1)
Marine Drafting TM-2100


78

Copyright 1994 to current year.
AVEVA Solutions Limited and its subsidiaries.

The split function will now create a new owner on the working level (in this case 1). So the geometry
selected will belong to a new level 1 view.

4.26.2 Split level 2 (Create new subview)

To create new subviews and components
in a subpicture select a working level of 2
or 3. This will 'split' or move the selected
items into a new subview or component
respectively.
Indicate the subpicture and select level 2
as the level to be split.




Now select the geometry to be split to the
new sub-view or component.



The result is a new level 2 subpicture.


4.26.3 Regroup Subpicture

This function allows the user to move entities from one owner to another. This means entities in 2 separate
subpictures can be grouped together.
In this case the component
from sub-view 2 is moved to
subview 1 and thus view 1>
sub-view 1 is its new owners.






In this case the component from sub-
view 2 has moved to subview 1 and thus
it has a new sub-view owner but belongs
to the same view.



To regroup two separate level 1 subpictures.

Select Tools >Subpicture >Regroup from the application pull-
down menu or select the Regroup subpicture button on the
Subpicture toolbar.
Polygon

To regroup the SECTION 16-A with the other
sections on the left of the drawing.

With the cursor select the subpicture to regroup
the items to, i.e. (the new owner).

Select the level 1, to regroup the other entities as
a sub-view to this existing view.

Once again there is a multiple-choice menu to
determine how the user selects geometry to
regroup.




Subordinate Move subordinates, indicated by the user to another
owner.
Neighbour Move all subordinates of neighbours, indicated by the
user to another owner.
Geometry Move all geometry indicated by the user to another
owner.
Polygon (CUT) Move all geometry selected by an enclosing
polygon/rectangle to another owner.
Area (CUT) Move all geometry selected by an enclosing general
area to another owner.
Set NO CUT Toggle CUT/NOCUT feature. If cut is set, geometry
intersecting the polygon/general area will be included
in the split. If NOCUT is set only the geometry
completely inside the polygon/area will be included.

Select Neighbour and indicate the geometry belonging to Section 16-A. Because the Regroup is being
performed using Level 1 selecting Neighbour will collect all Level 1 elements belonging to the indicated
geometry.

Had Subordinate been selected all Level 2 elements would have been collected, Level 2 being the
subordinate of Level 1. The use of Subordinate & Neighbour requires an awareness of the current
subpicture structure but is often quicker than using Polygon.

Click (Operation Complete) then YES to accept the regrouping. The selected subpicture will now be a
subordinate (in this case a level 2 subview) of the owner subpicture.

5 Basic Geometry

The drawing of the elements modelled using the AVEVA Marine suite of applications is a valuable by-
product of the modelling process. The need to draft a drawing from scratch using basic geometry does not
arise very often, but cannot be assumed to never happen at some stage. Consequently AVEVA Marine
provides the tools to allow the user to create basic geometry using traditional drafting functions.

5.1 Creating Geometry

5.1.1 Points

Points in drawings are represented as a small cross. The actual need to display a point and see the cross
on a drawing plot is not very common; therefore there is little requirement for the creation of these points.
However, points are used extensively when creating/positioning geometry. To avoid the need to have these
small crosses all over the drawing, a particular point type can be selected and after an indication in the
drawing, the system will create a temporary point allowing the creation of basic geometry.



Cursor point. - A point at the cursor position when the mouse is clicked.


Node point. - A point at the closest end point of an entity.



Key in co-ordinates of a point. - A point specified by u,v co-ordinates.




Event point. - A point at closest event point of a modelled element.



Midpoint. - A point at the midpoint of entity.



Intersection point. - A point at the closest intersection of two entities. Clicking the Options button
allows the two entities to determine the projected intersection.


Nearest point. - A point at the nearest part of the nearest entity.



Existing point. - A point at the nearest existing point on the drawing.



Centre of Arc. - A point at the centre of the closest arc.



Periphery point of arc segment by angle. - A point on the closest arc at an angle specified.
(0 at horizontal and +ve anti clockwise). Selecting indicate in the value will allow the cursor to snap
to the quarter positions.


Distance along a Contour. - A point at a user specified distance along an entity. Distance taken
from end closest to indication of entity.

Centre of Gravity. - A point at the centre of area of an enclosed contour.

AVEVA Marine (12.1)
Marine Drafting TM-2100


88

Copyright 1994 to current year.
AVEVA Solutions Limited and its subsidiaries.



Symbol connection. - A point at the closest symbol connection point.



Offset current point. - t.



Automatic point. - A point at the closest node, midpoint or intersection as defined by the user.

Add offset. - A point offset from the next point defined. (the next point defined will use the point
mode selected before the Add offset mode).

The sequence of point selection is very important for this operation, for example on the shape below a line
will be created from two points 25mm and 50mm up from the existing node points.

From the Insert Line function, (shown later) the
user is prompted for in the
Message Window.






The user can indicate the first node which will result in Enter String form appearing
allowing the user to key in the offset value, 25 U in this case and click the OK button.
The first position will have been determined.




The system will remain in the Node point mode but the user will have to select the Add Offset
option once again


The user can indicate the second node which will result in the Enter String form appearing
again allowing the user to key in the second offset value, 50 U in this case and click the OK
button. The line will now be complete.

In reality the Geometry Point
toolbar is seldom used
because it is quicker to
access the point via the right
mouse button context
sensitive meu.









The user must select the Node point option,
immediately followed by the Add Offset
option.

5.1.5 Virtual Geometry

So far the creation of the geometry has in some cases relied on interaction with existing
elements. It should be noted that this is not always necessary. The Virtual Geometry
mode allows the user to create temporary constructions lines during the function which
are used as references only and are removed upon completion.


In the following example a line will be created from point 1 to
point 2

Point 1 is a Node point

Point 2 is the Intersection of an existing line A and a
vertical virtual line B positioned at the Node point.









From the Insert Line function, the user is prompted for in the
Message Window.

Click the Node point option and indicate point 1.



Click the Intersection point option.


Indicate , but the actual intersection
does not exist.

Clicking the Options Indicate first
segment . However the desired segment line B does not exist.




To create the vertical line B click the Virtual Geometry Mode button on
the Geometry toolbar. The result of setting this mode is that the next
geometry element to be created will not be permanent in this case the
Vertical Line.


Click the Node point option and indicate point 3. The virtual line will be added as shown.

The prompt will change to
Indicate second segment .
Select the existing line A. to
complete the creation. The
virtual line is no longer visible.

5.2.4 Multiple Selection

This function will allow the user to select and filter multiple items. The Multiple
selection context sensitive menu option can be activated by pressing the Ctrl key
and clicking the right mouse button in the graphical window.

The Box function will allow the user to select elements within a given box and the
Polygon function will let the user select all the elements within a polygon. Inside
and Crossing are options to the area selection. If Inside is selected, elements
completely inside the area will be selected. If Inside is NOT selected, elements
completely outside the area will be selected. If Crossed is selected also elements
crossing the boundary will qualify for selection. i.e. in addition to the ones inside
and outside.


Among the selection options there are also two types of filters. The first filter represented by the Comp.,
Subview, View, Contour, Text and Symbol options. With the Comp., Subview and View the user decides
the subpicture level for selection. With the Contour, Text and Symbol options the user selects the type of
geometry to be selected. Selecting these options will only have the effect when there is no subpicture level
selected at all by the user. i.e. the user selects geometry entities directly.

The second filter is also on the context sensitive menu and this is the . This is an
additional filter that will be applied to the previously selected elements. The filter is one or several properties
i.e. Colour, Line Type, Text Height, Layer. When the user selects the option it means
that the user has two lists of elements, the selected and the filtered elements. The filtered elements are the
result the user will get when scanning the selected elements to find the ones that match the advanced filter
selection.

Selecting the option will display the Property Filter form.



If the user selects more than one property, this will
mean that the element must match all of the
selected properties to be targeted. i.e. If the user
has selected two subviews and they have set the
Property Filter to Colour Red and the Line type
Dashed. The filtered elements will be all contours
in the two subviews that are both red and dashed.


The search will stop on the highest level, i.e.
once a matching element is found the
subordinate elements will not be searched.





There are two menu choices on the Multiple Select context sensitive menu that are related to the selected /
filtered elements. Show selected elements and Show filtered elements.


These two options let the user select which list of elements they want to be highlighted on the drafting
canvas. The selected elements or the filtered elements, by default the selected elements are highlighted.

If the user has an Advanced Filter set, all operations that they apply to the selected elements will
affect the filtered elements and not the selected ones.

CHAPTER 6

6 Annotation & Enquiries

6.1 Dimensioning

Measurements are divided into the following main categories:
Linear,
Radius,
Diameter
Angle,
Curved
Area,
Distance From a Plane
3D rulers
Coordinate

The dimensioning functions make use of a variety of parameters that control the layout of the resulting
measurements. When starting up a session, all these parameters are initialised from the application default
file.

The layout parameter settings of the Linear, Angle, Radius and Diameter measurements do not normally
influence each other. However, the Co-ordinate, Curve Length and Area measurements share relevant
layout parameters with the Linear set.

2D dimensioning is activated from the Dimension application pull-down menu
or the Dimension toolbar.






When adding dimensions to the drawing the subpicture structure is determined
automatically. For linear dimensions a level 3 subpicture is added to the element
indicated for the first measure point.


6.1.1 2D Linear Dimensions

Select Dimension >Linear from the application pull-down menu or click the
Create Linear Dimension button on the Dimension toolbar.

The Dimensioning: Linear 2D form will then be displayed.






2D Linear measurements may be presented
Horizontally, Vertically or Parallel to an arbitrary line.

These are divided into three types:-
Normal:- Presents the distances between successive measure points, along a common line. If the
normal measurement contains only two measure points (i.e. a single measured) distance it is called
single, otherwise combined. A single measurement may be presented in four different ways.
Chain:- Presents the distances between a base point and a number of successive measure points,
along a common dimension line. The base point equals the first supplied point.
Staircase:- Presents the distances between a base point and a number of successive measure
points. The distances are presented along a common direction, but along separate dimension lines.
The base point equals the first supplied point.

6.1.1.7.1 Tolerance

The tolerance may be appended to the measure. There are two types of tolerances, symmetric and
unsymmetrical.

Symmetric
The symmetric tolerance consists of a single value, denoting the uniform
deviation from the measured value. The height of the tolerance text will be
the same as the height of the measure text.






Asymmetrical
The asymmetrical tolerance consists of two values, denoting the upper
and lower deviation from the measured value. The height of the tolerance
text will be half the height of the measure text.




Setting these tolerances has an impact on the Dimension test field.

6.2.1 Adding Outfit Intelligent Text Labels

To add labels for Outfitting elements select Annotate >Label from the application pull-
down menu or click the Create Labels button on the Dimensioning toolbar.

The Label form is displayed allowing the user to key in alternative label syntax. The
default value that is used #FLNM() is the full name attribute.






Once the syntax is entered click the OK button on the form. The user is prompted
to in the Message Window.

The event point is effectively a Ppoint from Outfitting.

Indicating the required Ppoint will display the following form:-

1 Same as given P-point: - allows the user to use the indicated
Ppoint for the leader line.
2 Another Point: allows the user to indicate an alternative
position for the leader line.


The following form is then displayed allowing the user to determine
whether the label should be inside a box.






The following form is then displayed allowing the user to determine the
appearance of the leader line.




The user will need to understand the numerous possibilities when
entering the syntax values. The attribute values are obtained from the
lowest level of the hierarchy, i.e. a primitive from an EQUI or component
from a pipe, unless the user specifies otherwise.



For example:-

Using #FLNM() and selecting a primitive on an EQUI
will have the following result:-

Using #FLNM() and selecting the elbow on a PIPE will
have the following result:-


AVEVA Marine (12.1)
Marine Drafting TM-2100


128
www.aveva.com
Copyright 1994 to current year.
AVEVA Solutions Limited and its subsidiaries.

Neither of these values are particularly useful without the required filters





However using #FLNM<FROM EQUI>() and
#FLNM<FROM PIPE>() will have the following result:-







The name of the EQUI and PIPE both contain the slash which may be undesirable to the user. The content
of the label can be modified using the syntax between the brackets ().


To remove the slash from above, the syntax
#FLNM<FROM EQUI>(C2:) and #FLNM<FROM
PIPE>(C2:) can be used.


A comprehensive list of formats can be seen in
Appendix D Intelligent Text Syntax.





Other useful examples of syntax are as follows:-

To show the system to which the EQUI is assigned use
the syntax #MDSYSF<FROM EQUI>().














To show the position of the EQUI in relation to the
owning ZONE use the syntax #POS<FROM
EQUI,WRT ZONE>().

To show the bore of a branch use the syntax
#HBORE<FROM BRAN>().






Useful parameters from the catalogue can also be
obtained using the syntax #PARA[3]<FROM SPREF
PRTREF>(). In this case the connection type from the
elbow.





Text can be added to the label by the user, for example
Connection Code:- #PARA[3]<FROM SPREF
PRTREF>() will result in the following:-





The text can be separated onto different lines using
the #/ syntax, for example Connection Code:-
#/#PARA[3]<FROM SPREF PRTREF>() will result
in the following:-

6.2.2 Hole Annotate

6.3 Auto Tagging


The Autotagging facility enables the user to automatically
generate a series of Labels in one or more model views of a Sheet.
Having defined a set of rules to control which elements are to be labelled
and the (common) appearance of the labels.


The automatically generated Labels (which may be General or Symbolic) can then
be individually edited, e.g. it may be necessary to reposition a label or to modify its
leader line. The editing functionality is subject to a few constraints so as to prevent
Labels from becoming out of line with the criteria under which the Autotagging
process operates.

The hierarchy for the creation of Tags is the same as for Labels. Tags will only be placed on Layers that
have their PURPose attribute set to TAG, however, the Outfitting Draft Administrator can define other
PURPoses that may be used in addition to TAG.

The TAGR shown in the diagram above is a Tag Rule which can be defined locally by a user. Standard Tags
Rules, created by the Outfitting Draft Administrator, may be available.

Labels created by Autotagging may not be deleted singularly. If the Tag Rule is deleted or Unset, in
the case of standard rules, then the labels will be removed.

6.3.1 Creating Tags

Firstly open the drawing TRA_CH3-DRAWING-INTERFACE and then select Annotate >Autotagging from
the main menu. The Automatic Tagging form is displayed. If the user has no view current, a prompt will
before the form is displayed. This enables
Marine Drafting to select the correct view and layer(s) for tagging.


The Layer pull-down lists the available Layers for the current view that can own the GLAB & SLAB elements
created via Autotagging.

Only Layers with a PURPose attribute set to TAG will be listed, (by
default only one Layer will be present, although others may be
created if required).

The Automatic Tagging form has two parts:

Library Tagging
Local Tagging.

A layer may only contain one set of Library tags as regenerating
them deletes the existing ones, losing any manual positioning that
has been done on the previous tags.

However it is possible to have more than one set of local tags under
a Layer.

6.3.2 Library Tagging

Library tagging uses Tag Rules defined by the Draft Administrator. The Tag Rule Library where the rules are
stored is displayed next to the Reference Library text on the Automatic Tagging form. This library may be
changed by the administrator from the User Defaults form accessible from outfitting draft by selecting
from the main menu.
The following example is based on a drawing containing the ZONE 403-EQUIP and ZONE 403-
PIPE, the Function of the ZONE 403-EQUIP has been changed to 'Layout Equipment'. The Library
tagging rule for Equipment / Nozzle requires that the Function of the Equipment Zone contains the

The Function attribute is case-sensitive.

The Tag Library pull-down enables the user to select the class of item
that you wish to tag, e.g. Equipment, Piping, Structural, etc.





The Style pull-down enables the user to select the particular item type
that you wish to tag. The available list will vary depending on the
option selected from the Tag Library list.

The Equipment Nozzle Select Rule requires that the Function of the Equipment Zone has the word
Equipment in it. For training PHULL FWD has been made a member of the EQUI TEAM. Functions
would normally be set by EQUI OUTFIT.
To change the Function attribute, select the ZONE 403-EQUIP element from the Design Explorer,
click the right mouse button and from the displayed context sensitive menu select .
Layout Equipment This should be carried out by Equipment user.

Clicking on the Apply button displays the following message, clicking the Yes
button will delete any existing tags on the current layer



It is possible to create Local and Library Tags in the same Layer.
However care must be taken that the form is being used for only one of
the instances at any one time. If this is not done an error is displayed
You cannot set the Library Style Reference
whilst Local Rules exist

Clicking on the Update button at the bottom of the
Automatic Tagging form generates the tags (as SLABs).

The tags will be positioned using a default position criterion;
however, they may be re-positioned using the option
available in Marine Drafting i.e. Modify >Label >Move.


In some cases two or more tags may be positioned
automatically using the same default position.

6.3.3 Local Tagging

Local Tagging gives the user control over the appearance and relevance of the tags. Tags may use a
Library Symbolic Label or a locally defined General Label as a template.

The Copy Library Style button enables the user to copy a Library
Tagging style and then make modifications to the tag rule that defines
which elements are tagged.

Having copied the library style the Style selection in the Library
Tagging area of the form becomes unset. If the Style is unset when
you click the Copy Library Style button, no style will be copied.




Clicking the Apply button changes the Rule name to NOZZLE-1












A Tag Rule and Label Master are created in
the appropriate layer








The Tag pull down displays the item type to be tagged and the Rule button displays the current tagging rules
in your local style.

To modify the rule that determines which elements will be tagged, modify the selection criteria in the With
textbox.

The Template Ref shows the name of the Symbolic Label used for the tagging. This may also be
changed or a General Label created, as described later.

6.3.4 Creating a new Local Tagging Rule


If the copying of a Library Tagging Style is not desired, new Local
Tagging Rules may be created and stored under the LAYE element.

The Tag pull-down enables the user to select the elements to be
tagged:




Clicking the Create button creates a new rule name based on the type
of element you have selected to be tagged, e.g. EQUIPMENT-1,
BRANCH-1, SCTN-1, etc.

Subsequent creation of a Local Tagging Rule using the same element
type will increment the suffix of the rule name, e.g. EQUIPMENT-2,
BRANCH-2, SCTN-2, etc.

The Delete button deletes the Local Tagging Rule displayed in the
Rule pull-down.

6.3.5 With Selection

The With textbox enables the user to enter selection criteria, using standard operands, that will filter the
selected element types, e.g. if the selected element type is a valve an entry of
ABORE GE 80 in the With textbox would select only gate valves with a bore greater or equal to 80mm.

6.3.6 Template Type

The Template Type pull-down has two options:

CHAPTER 7

7 Automatic Drawing Production (ADP)

This chapter explains how to use Automatic Drawing Production (ADP) for Equipment, Pipework and
Steelwork.
Marine Drafting allows for various types of Automatic Drawing Production:

General ADP for Equipment and Piping
Steelwork Detaili
HVAC Sketches


Select AutoDP from the main menu pull-down.


7.1 General ADP

The General ADP option creates drawings from specified parts of the Design and adds annotation,
according to defaults set up by the System Administrator.

The defaults are stored in files. There are different defaults suitable for different types of drawing. The user
must load a suitable file for the drawing being produced.

The files are located in
C:\AVEVA\Marine\Projects12.1.SPx\Training\mtpdflts

The ADP application can add dimensions, labels, and schedules to a drawing. It can also add graphical
information such as equipment centrelines and pipe end symbols. The ADP application recognises different
types of dimensions:

Type 1 dimensions for Pipework
Type 2 dimensions for Equipment centres
Type 3 dimensions for Gridlines or Bulkheads

The way in which each type of dimension is displayed can be controlled. The order in which types of
dimensions are generated can be specified and for each type, rules can be setup using PML expressions to
define how different drawing element types are dimensioned.

7.1.1 Creating a General ADP Drawing.

ADP Drawings must be created in a suitable registry i.e. REGI MarDwg. Once the required registry has been
chosen, select AutoDP >>General ADP >Create from the main menu pull-down.

The Create DRWG form will now be displayed, key in the name DR-
ADP-1, and then click the OK button.


The Modify General ADP Drawing Form will be displayed. It is
very similar to other Create Drawing Forms with the exception
that the title can be multi-lined.

Select Frame /TT/DRA/PRJ /BACKS/MET/A0

8.1.2 Modifying Attributes


The attributes of the database elements can be modified
using the Attributes form. The attributes which are not
editable, for example the Type and Owner attribute, or
attributes for elements the user does not have write
permission for, are displayed in the grid with a grey
background.

Generally, Marine Drafting users will not have write-
permission to change the Attributes of elements in the
Design Explorer. This section of has been included for
information only.

Left-mouse clicking an attribute value in the grid will allow the user to edit the value. Feedback is given to
the user on the success of the modified attribute.

Successful modifications are highlighted in Cyan. A tool tip
is displayed when the cursor is moved over the attribute
value, confirming the update is acceptable.




Unsuccessful modifications are highlighted in
Salmon. Again, a tooltip is displayed when the cursor
is moved over the attribute value, giving feedback on
the reason the update has failed.



8.1.3 Attribute Right-Mouse Options

When right-mouse clicking on an attribute in the form, instead of from the column headers, there are two
additional options available, Navigate To and Set Attribute Value to CE. These options will be available
or greyed out, dependent upon if the attribute selected allows modification, or has an external
reference which can be navigated to or set as.

8.1.3.1 Navigate To

The Navigate To option will navigate to the attribute setting, if it references another element, and make that
element the CE.













If the Track CE checkbox in Attributes form is checked, the form will display the attributes on the
element navigated to.


8.1.3.2 Set Attribute Value to CE

The Set Attribute Value to CE option allows the user to navigate to the element the selected attribute is to
be set to; selecting Set Attribute Value to CE will set the attribute. Note that the Track CE checkbox
must be unchecked to use this feature.























The ability to change these Attributes depends upon the write permissions of the user. Again,
general Marine Drafting users will not usually have permission to change Attributes of elements
in the Design Explorer, and this section has been included for information only.

8.3 Introduction

The Search tool enables the user to search for model items in the Dabacon database, refine using filters and
to be able to list the search results in a table / grid. The user will be able to specify one or more item types
(separated by spaces, commas or semi-colons) to search and be able to set scope & attribute filters for the
search. The user will be able to select the items listed in the search result table, and perform actions on this
selection.

To commence the search the user should press the Search button.








It may take a considerable period of time to output a large amount of data into the output table.
The amount of elements found during the search is shown within the
form after the search.


The Search Tool will automatically
open the Search Results table and populate the table with the search
results.






If the Search Results form is closed, it can be opened at
any time by selecting the Display Search Results
link label on the Search form


8.3.1 Item Type

The user can specify one or more item types to be searched for, separated by spaces in the item type
combo-box, such as;






The search tool remembers the history for the current session in the drop down combo-box. The user can
clear the history at any time by selecting Clear History at the bottom of the combo-box.

Copyright 1994 to current year.
AVEVA Solutions Limited and its subsidiaries.

8.3.2 Search Filters

The user can set various scopes for the search. When the search tool is first opened during a session, then
the default scope will have the world element as the ceiling of the search within the current database (i.e.
Design, if within the Design application).


The In Database pull-down menu can be used to
search other MDBs, such as Catalog.










The various search filters which can be set are listed
below.

It is possible to mix Beneath Item and In Volume filters.







8.3.2.1 Hierarchical Search beneath a Ceiling

The user can enter the name of an existing database item to use as the ceiling in the ownership hierarchy.
All found items will exist in this ownership hierarchy. This is not a volumetric search. The database combo-
box will automatically update if the database item exists in any of the visible databases. Similarly, if the user
changes the database type in the combo-box then the database item currently displayed will be checked,
and if not found in that database then it will be reset to world.

The databases listed in the combo-box are those that are available to the user in the current session.

The database item which the user enters will be remembered throughout the session in the combo-box. This
history can be cleared.


8.3.2.2 Search within Element List

This option allows the user to set a list of elements to be considered
in the search. The options available include using the current
Drawlist, and the elements contained in My Data.


8.3.2.3 Search by modification date

Using this option, the user is able to filter
the search by the date of which the
Element was last modified.

Copyright 1994 to current year.
AVEVA Solutions Limited and its subsidiaries.

8.3.2.4 Volumetric Search within an existing model item, or a 3D box

The user can specify an existing model item for the scope of the search This is a volumetric search and not
an ownership (hierarchical) type search. The found items will reside within the volume of the specified model
item. Alternatively, the user can specify the opposite 2 corners of a 3D box in which to conduct the search.

There are options with either of these searches to specify whether the found items exist completely or
partially within the specified volume

8.3.3 Attribute Filters

The user can set one or more attribute filters for the search. The
specified attributes will apply to each item type listed. If there is more
than one attribute filter specified then the found items will satisfy all of
the attribute filters.





The system will recognise the type of each attribute entered by the
user and provide appropriate operator conditions in the Operator
field (i.e. contains, starts with, less then, etc.), and the Value field will
be available for the user to enter an appropriate value. The user will
not be able to set the operator or value fields before an attribute
name is specified. Of particular note are the In List and In Range
operators.




8.3.3.1 In List operator

This enables the user to specify a list of values (separated by spaces) these can be numeric or non-numeric,
depending on the type of the attribute. i.e., Attribute =AREA, Operator =In the list, Value =0 2 3, would find
items which have AREA attribute equal to either 0 or 2 or 3.





8.3.3.2 In Range operator

This enables the user to specify a range of 2 numeric values i.e. an upper and a lower limit which includes
the lower and upper limit. So, i.e., Attribute =AREA, Operator =In the range, Value =1 10, would find items
which have AREA attribute equal to any numeric value between and including 1 and 10.






If the Attribute is changed once it is in the grid, then the Operator and Value fields will update accordingly.

Attribute filters can be removed from the grid by selecting one or more rows, and then either clicking Delete
Filter from the form, or hitting the delete key.

8.4 General Functionality on the Search Results Form

The search results will be output to a separate Search Results form (containing a tabular control). The user
can specify the columns that are displayed. Each column represents an attribute of the item. The user will
be able to display and hide the search results form. The user can select either one or more rows in the
Search Results form and perform specified actions on this data. i.e., within Design, the user can drag &
drop one or more items into the 3D graphical view. All menu actions can be specified within the AVEVA
customisable menu builder application.

All Search Results functionality is accessible through the right-mouse menus by right-clicking a column
header.

8.4.4 Virtual Hierarchies

A Virtual Hierarchy is another method of adding elements to a Group Set. It allows an expression to be used
which will dynamically add specified elements to the Group Set. Any new elements created later which fall
inside the specified expression will be automatically added to the Group Set.

The dynamic selection consists of a PML 1 collection expression, and is set against the SCOSEL (Access
Control Scope) attribute of the Group Set (GPSET) element.

Some examples of expressions which can be used are:

ALL PIPE WHERE ( BORE GT 80 ) - This will add all PIPE elements in the MDB which have a
Bore greater than 80
FOR SITE /EQUIP_3DK_FWD . This will add all
Equipment elements, located beneath SITE EQUIP_3DK_FWD
ALL ( EQUI HVAC ) - This will add all EQUI and HVAC elements in the MDB

In this example, the SCOSEL attribute of the Group Set created previously can be updated to dynamically
add all EQUI elements belonging to ZONE 311-EQUIP. From the Attributes form, change the SCOSEL
attribute to ALL (EQUI) FOR ZONE /311-EQUIP.

















The Group Set now contains all the EQUI elements owned by ZONE 311-EQUIP, and any subsequent EQUI
elements added to this Zone will automatically be added to the Group Set.

The model may be rotated around the eye point, the position from which the
model is being viewed, or the eye may be rotated around the model.
The method of operation depends on the setting displayed in the Status
Area in the bottom left hand corner of the 3D View. If the status reads
Model the eye is rotated around the model. If the status reads Eye the
model will be rotated around the eye.

Function key F7 toggles between Model and Eye. When the Model option is set the centre of rotation is the
centre of the 3D view.

Rotating may also be performed using sliders along the bottom and right-hand edges of the 3D View.

The slider along the bottom of the view rotates the view around the vertical axis and the slider on the right-
hand side of the view rotates the view around the horizontal axis.

Clicking and holding down the left mouse button on the appropriate slider and moving the pointer in the
required direction will rotate the view. Selecting function key F9 toggles the sliders on and off.

Panning may also be achieved by setting the Centre of Interest of the 3D
view. Positioning the pointer anywhere and in the 3D view and clicking the
middle mouse button will move the selected to the centre of the view, thus
effectively panning the view.
The view will pan by the distance between the picked point and the centre
of the view.
Keeping the pointer in the same location and repeatedly clicking the middle
mouse button will keep panning the view.

Walk In Walk mode the eye point moves towards or away from the model. When
in Walk mode, clicking and holding down the middle mouse button and
moving the pointer up walks the eye point forward, i.e. towards the model,
whilst moving the pointer down walks the eye point backwards, i.e. away
from the model.
Walk mode only works in perspective views. Selecting View >Settings >
Perspective will set Perspective if the option is currently unchecked or set
Model if the option is currently checked. Function key F4 also toggles
between Perspective and Parallel.
The current setting is displayed in the Status Area.




Restore View Allows the user to restore up to four views. Clicking the left mouse button
on one of these buttons restores the view saved with that view number.
These saved views are only applicable to the current session, and will not
be available after the user has exited the system. This option enables the
user to save the current state of a 3D View so that the direction and
magnification can be restored when required.


Views are saved by using the right-mouse click 3D Shortcut menu
in the 3D view, and selecting Save View, then the view number
which the current 3D view setting is to be saved in.



Once a view is saved, the corresponding button in the
3D view control toolbar is no longer greyed out, and
selecting this button will restore the 3D view to the saved
setting. The view can also be restored using the right-
mouse click 3D shortcut menu, and selecting Restore
View >View1

If View 1 has already been saved, selecting it again will overwrite the previous view and save the new
one

These saved views are only applicable to the current session, and will not be available after the user has
exited the system.

8.6 Status Control

Status Control allows the user the ability to control and report on the status of individual model elements as
they progress through their lifecycles.
Equipment elements, Pipe elements, Hull elements, Catalogue elements, drawings etc can all have status
assigned to allow for full control of all these elements during the design and production stages of their
lifecycle.

The Status Control data model defines a workflow as a status definition owning a set of Status Values.
Individual model objects reference the status value via a status link object as shown below. Status data is
stored on the status link objects (stored in the same database as the object to which it refers). The user
does not need write access to the model object in order to set its status. The status link objects are
distributed globally with the model objects they refer to. They are not visible to the end user, but the status
data is available as pseudo attributes.
