CHAPTER 1

1 Introduction

AVEVA Everything3D™ (AVEVA E3D™) Pipe Router is a rule-based tool which enables the routing of pipe
networks by automatically positioning piping components.

Before using Pipe Router the pipes must be created, and their Heads and Tails connect or positioned. Pipe
Router begins routing from the head of a pipe and ends the route at the tail. The flow direction is always
forwards (from Head to Tail).

Pipe Router will automatically:

 Create clash-free orthogonal routes which use the minimum length of pipe and as few elbows and bends
as possible. The user can include non-orthogonal sections of pipe manually.

 Add elbows, reducers, flanges, gaskets and welds, providing they are available in the catalogue.

 Position piping components such as valves.

1.1 Aim

The aim of this training guide is to provide designers with the knowledge and skills necessary to use Pipe
Router to create simple pipe routes using simple rules.

1.2 Objectives

 Create a simple pipe route

 Use Routing Points to control the pipe route

 Route pipes along Routing Planes and Pipe Racks

 Create and use simple Routing Rules

1.3 Prerequisites

It is expected that trainees will have completed the TM – 1801 AVEVA Everything3D Foundations and TM –
1810 AVEVA Everything3D Pipework Modelling training courses. Trainees who can demonstrate a suitable
understanding of other AVEVA E3D applications and techniques may also be permitted to undertake the
training.

1.4 Course Structure

Training will consist of oral and visual presentations, demonstrations, worked examples and set exercises.
Each workstation will have a training project populated with model objects. This will be used by the trainees
to practice their methods and complete the set exercises.
