S E C T I O N 1
In order to use the software for process design, you must have reference data. Reference data
can be graphical or non-graphical in nature. For example, reference data includes graphical
symbols that you can place in the model, such as equipment or piping components. Reference
data also includes non-graphical, tabular data, such as catalog data and specification data.
Catalog data includes the parts that you place in the model, such as piping components and
equipment. Specification data includes the rules that govern how those parts are placed and
connected.
Understanding how the reference data in the software works is essential to effective use of the
software. For example, when you route pipe, nearly everything you see on a Properties dialog
box comes from reference data. While you route pipe, you are also constrained by piping
specification rules in reference data.
The software delivers the reference data in Microsoft Excel workbooks. In this flexible format,
you can edit the reference data, as well as add your own. For example, Excel allows you to copy
entire sheets of data and then modify some parameters. Another way to add or edit the
reference data is to use the commands in the Catalog task in the software. For more
information, see the documentation available for the Catalog task.
The catalog information is also user-customizable in terms of its data structure. You can
organize the delivered reference data into groups in the way that makes sense for your
company or project. For example, you can group the objects by type. These groups are often
referred to as classes.
You can migrate PDS piping specifications to use with the current software. The software
provides a tool that allows you to populate dimension table rules to update industry commodity
codes. For more information, see Using the PDS Translator (on page 29).
Solid Edge, Visual Basic, and SmartPlant 2D Symbols (Symbol 2D) are important tools for
creating reference data. You can use Solid Edge to create parametric or non-parametric
symbols; however, client computers used to modify Solid Edge parametric symbols after
placement must have Solid Edge loaded. Visual Basic provides programming tools for creating
more sophisticated, parameterized parts. Both Solid Edge and Visual Basic are used for
creating three- dimensional symbols. Symbol 2D provides the ability to create layer-based cross
sections for use in the Structure task.
To add a large amount of reference data to the catalog, use the Bulkload utility to transfer Excel
workbook data into the Catalog database. Each workbook is organized in a particular way in
order to specify the objects, their properties, and the relationship of the objects to the rest of the
hierarchy.

The following picture shows the overall workflow of creating reference data for the software. You
can create graphical data in Symbol 2D, Solid Edge, or Visual Basic (A). Excel workbooks
contain tabular data (B). You use the Bulkload utility (C) to populate the Catalog database (D).
Using the software, you place items in the Model database (E).

(A) - Graphical data
(B) - Tabular data
(C) - Bulkload utility
(D) - Catalog database and schema
(E) - Model database

Learning about Reference Data Types (on page 26)
Learning about Reference Data Types
Reference data can be graphical or non-graphical in nature. Graphical data includes Visual
Basic .dll files, Solid Edge .par and .asm files, and Symbol 2D .sym files. Non-graphical data
includes Microsoft Excel workbooks.
Graphical Data
The software supports multiple ways of representing a graphical symbol.
Visual Basic (VB) Symbols
Routing components are typically represented using a VB definition of the symbol. VB provides
an easy-to-use language to parametrically define the graphical representation of the symbol and
its connect points. Many VB symbols are delivered with the software.
Solid Edge Symbols
"One-off" equipment design can be done using Solid Edge, which provides several graphical
primitives to build the geometry of the equipment definition. The geometry can be parametrically
defined but requires Solid Edge to be loaded on every client workstation that will be used to
place the equipment in the model. Or, you must make sure that every possible size has been
generated and cached in the catalog.
SmartPlant 2D Symbols
Cross-section symbols for structural applications can be defined in the SmartPlant 2D Symbols
application. Using the Variable Table, you can parametrically define and constrain the geometry
of the symbols.
Understanding Reference Data


SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide 27

Non-graphical Data
This type of data includes specifications, rules, and other tabular information.
Classes and Parts
A part class is a group of related parts. For example, a part class can be an Inline Centrifugal
Fan. The parts could be models that run 1/3, 1/6, or 1/8 horsepower. Each part is a separate,
selectable object in the Catalog.
Specifications and Rules
Specifications are the collection of standards for the types of objects placed in a model. Rules
determine how the specifications are applied. You can customize both rules and specifications
based on what makes sense for your company. For information about piping specifications and
rules, see the Piping Reference Data Guide available from the Help > Printable Guides
command in the software. Other rules include interference checking rules and naming rules,
both described in this guide.
Tables
The reference data tables in the Catalog contain non-graphical property data. For example, the
codelists in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook are stored in tables in the Catalog database.

Looking at How the Catalog Database Fits In (on page 27)

Looking at How the Catalog Database Fits In
The software can use up to seven databases: Catalog, Catalog Schema, Model, Site, Site
Schema, Reports, and Reports Schema.
The Catalog database contains reference data, which includes part dimensions and industry
standards. This Reference Data Guide is about the data in the Catalog database.
Using the Bulkload utility, you can create a starting Catalog database and schema from a data
file delivered with the software. You can use your own custom Excel workbooks and custom
symbols to create a new Catalog database specifically for your project.
After creating the Catalog database, you can modify the delivered reference data. Two methods
exist to modify the reference data: edit the workbooks in Excel and bulk load the data, or use the
commands in the Catalog task to edit the data (bulkload is not necessary in that case).
The Model database contains all instances of parts in the physical model. The Catalog and
Model databases share the same schema.
The Site database and schema are containers for the other databases. The Site database
stores work-breakdown and user access for the model. A site database can have multiple model
and catalog databases. Typically, there is one site database set for each customer location. For
information about site databases, see the Project Management User's Guide available from the
Help > Printable Guides command in the software.
The Reports database and schema interact with the other databases to generate tabular reports
from the model data. For information about reports, see the Reports User's Guide and the
Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide available from the Help > Printable Guides
command in the software.

To view the hierarchy and contents of the Catalog, start the Catalog task. To view the Site
database, start the Project Management task. For more information about the functionality in
these tasks, see the Catalog Help and Project Management Help files.
For creation date and size information on each database, you can open SQL Server Enterprise
Manager. This software also provides further technical details about the relational tables in each
database.
The following picture shows the relationships of the databases:

(A) - Reports database
(B) - Site database
(C) - Model database
(D) - Catalog database
(E) - Site Schema database

The PDS (Plant Design System) Translator allows you to migrate your PDS piping specifications
to SmartPlant 3D piping reference data. The tool also allows you to populate dimension table
name rules and to update industry commodity codes.
The PDS translation process requires the specification writer to make some manual
edits to complete the conversion.
Workflow
1. Create PDS Export data files (on page 30).
2. Edit the Piping Translation Rules Workbook (on page 30).
3. Populate Dimension Table name rules (on page 31).
Populating the dimension table name rules is performed only once, before the
translation process.
4. Translate PDS reference data (on page 32).
You may need to run the translation step a number of times.
5. After translation, define necessary manual information (see Define Manual Information after
Translation (on page 33)). For information about required reference data, refer to Required
Worksheets (on page 35).
6. Create Commodity Codes (on page 39) (optional).
7. Bulk load the translated workbooks: piping specification data, piping commodity data, and
codelist data.
8. Run the Verify Consistency command in the Catalog task. For more information, see the
Catalog User's Guide available from the Help > Printable Guides command.
9. Run the PDS Model Data Exporter, and import the PDS model data into the software. For
more information, see the Common User's Guide available from the Help > Printable
Guides command.

Define Manual Information after Translation

The specification writer usually performs this procedure.
For more information about required reference data, see Required Worksheets (on page
35).
1. Open the Piping Catalog and Specification workbooks.
2. In the Catalog workbook, do the following:
Add worksheets as necessary. For more information, see Required Worksheets (on
page 35).
Add oa:Rotation to all valves with operators.
Add oa:Angle to all elbows.
Add oa:SpectaclePosition to all spec blinds.
Add oa:EccentricOffsetBasis to all eccentric reducers.
On the Piping Female End Generic Data sheet, define values for socket offset, thread
depth, hub outside diameter, and hub thickness.
On the Piping Bolted End Generic Data sheet, define values for flange thickness
tolerance, flange face projection, raised face diameter, flange groove width, standard
nut height for studs, standard washer thickness for studs, standard bolt extension for
studs, standard nut height for machine bolts, standard washer thickness for machine
bolts, and body outside diameter.

Change the bolt extension to address the use of nut height and washer thickness.
Add the drilling template data for PDS through-bolted ends without bolt holes.
If "almost precise" STUD tables were used in PDS, remove the drilling template
data.
On the Bolt Part Data sheet, define the values for the maximum temperature, fluid
code, ring number, and type any comments as necessary.
On the Gasket Part Data sheet, define the values for ring number and gasket type.
If you chose to use the SP3Dolet symbol definition for all your olets, you must manually
add the other two required symbol input dimensions (MajorBodyDiameter and
HoleinHeader) that the translator does not add to the olet part sheets. Failure to add the
two additional dimensions will cause the placement of olets to fail. As an alternative, you
can use the SP3DOletG symbol which only requires the same single input dimension
(FacetoHeaderSurface) as PDS.
3. In the Specification workbook, do the following:
Add worksheets as necessary. For more information, see Required Worksheets (on
page 35).
Edit the Bend Angles sheet as necessary.
Edit the Weld Clearance sheet as necessary.
Edit the Pipe Takedown Parts sheet as necessary.
Check the Piping Commodity Filter sheet for zero entries for RCP (red connect point)
for olets. For some olet type components, the translator may miss the second connect
point data, so you must manually verify the correct mapping.
On the Piping Commodity Material Control Data sheet, define the values for cap
screw diameter and for tapped hole depth.
Using the PDS Translator


34 SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide

On the Bolt Selection Filter sheet, define the value for bolt priority. Also, complete the
comments as necessary.

If the PDS translator encounters two through-bolted fittings requiring a complete
substitution of cap screws; and both through-bolted fittings have identical bolted
ends in terms of end preparation, pressure rating, and end standard; and the two
through-bolted fittings imply different cap screw commodity codes in PDS, only one
cap screw record will be created in the Bolt Selection Filter. The PDS Translator will
arbitrarily choose one of the two cap screw commodity codes, and the specification
writer must manually add the second cap screw by use of the bolt option.
If the PDS translator encounters a through-bolted fitting requiring a complete
substitution of cap screws; and the through-bolted fitting implies two different cap
screw commodity codes in PDS based on two different size ranges, only one cap
screw record will be created in the Bolt Selection Filter. The PDS Translator will
arbitrarily choose one of the two cap screw commodity codes, and the specification
writer must manually add the second cap screw by use of a different size range.
On the Gasket Selection Filter sheet, define the value for ring number. The
maximum temperature was used as the ring number in the delivered PDS data, but
a rule has not been defined to translate from the commodity code and maximum
temperature to ring number.
On the Permissible Taps Data sheet, define the value for IsPreferredTap.
Optionally, edit the Index sheet. Add or edit hyperlinks.
Optionally, edit the Revision History sheet.
4. Save the catalog and specification workbooks and exit.
5. Open the AllCodeLists.xls workbook and edit as necessary. Save and exit.

For the CL51 through CL56 rating items, the rating must be changed to a
schedule/thickness value.
PDS geometry standards must be replaced with industry standards. The following table
shows the corresponding US Practice Geometry standards.
6 = 'PDS- P1'
7 = 'PDS- P2'
8 = 'PDS- P3'
11 = 'PDS- I1'
12 = 'PDS- I2'
13 = 'PDS- I3'
16 = 'PDS- Op1'
17 = 'PDS- Op2'
18 = 'PDS- Op3'
For reinforcing pads using a geometry standard of 6 (or other), the value can be removed
from the PipingCommodityMatlControlData worksheet in column P. This record is not
required for SmartPlant 3D.
Items using any user-defined or customized geometry standards require that the values are
added to the AllCodelists workbook.

Here are some important points to remember about this utility.
The Piping Commodity Filter Cleanup utility deletes duplicate records in the piping
commodity filter.
The utility scans the Piping Nominal Diameters sheet for valid sizes, then processes the
Piping Commodity Filter (PCF, in this topic) sheet in the specified file, and merges
common records when the values of all properties (except the First Size, From and First
Size, To properties) are identical.
The utility does not support the cleanup of catalog (part) sheets.
The utility can clean only one piping commodity filter sheet at a time.
The utility overwrites the cleaned specification PCF workbook and reports results in a log
file.
Limitations
The Piping Nominal Diameters sheet and the Piping Commodity Filter (PCF) sheet must
be in the workbook specified for processing.
The utility does not merge multi-size items such as reducers, reducing tees, and so forth,
unless all the records in the first size and second size match.
The utility may change the formatting of some merged cells. If you require specific
formatting, it may be necessary to apply the desired formats to modified cells after the
cleanup is completed.

Using the Pipe Branch Cleanup Utility
The Pipe Branch Cleanup utility is a tool for cleaning translated PDS piping specification branch
table data by removing invalid records based on available piping diameters per spec. These
records may exist in translated PDS reference data or user-defined specification workbooks.
Here are some important points to remember about this utility.
The utility scans the Pipe Nominal Diameters sheet for allowable sizes per spec.
The utility then applies the available diameters to the appropriate branch tables.
The utility removes records from the Pipe Branch sheet that reference invalid diameters for
the spec as defined in the Pipe Nominal Diameters worksheet. Put another way, the utility
eliminates pipe branch records for any sizes that are outside the permissible NPD rule for
the corresponding piping specification.
The utility can clean only one branch sheet at a time.
The utility edits the branch sheet and reports results in a log file.
Limitations
The utility does not remove duplicate records from the branch tables.
The Pipe Branch and Pipe Nominal Diameters sheets must exist in separate workbooks.
One way to set this up is to open the piping specification workbook, and cut and paste the
Pipe Nominal Diameters sheet into another workbook. The specification workbook has the
branch sheet in it. After the process is over, copy the nominal diameters sheet back into the
specification workbook.

Before running the OD to NPD utility, you must convert at least one PDS
specification using the PDS translator. The conversion results in one specification workbook and
one catalog workbook per spec.
1. In Windows Explorer, navigate to the software installation folder.
2. Under CatalogData\PDSTranslator\Bin, double-click ODtoNPD.exe.
The Workstation setup includes the PDSTranslator folder only if you have specified the
Project Management option during installation.
3. In the Piping Catalog Excel file box, browse and select the piping catalog workbook (.xls
format).
4. In the PDS Model Code Rule Excel file box, browse and select the PDS model code rule
workbook (.xls format).
5. In the Log file box, browse to specify the log file for the conversion process.
6. Click Start Convert. As the utility processes the files, you can view the status messages on
the dialog box. Once completed, "Finished" appears on the dialog box.

The software allows you to modify the reference data using two methods. One method is editing
the Excel workbooks and then bulk loading your changes into the Catalog database. You must
bulk load the Excel data in order to use the modified reference data in the software; it is not
sufficient to change only the Excel workbooks. The second method is using the commands in
the Catalog task.
To edit the Excel data, you must understand the content and format of the workbooks.
Many of the delivered workbooks contain data unique to a given function or discipline. For
example, there are separate Excel workbooks for Piping, Structure, and so forth. There are also
common workbooks that contain data for more than one discipline; one example is the
AllCodeLists.xls workbook, which contains codelists. For a list of workbooks and
corresponding documentation, see Delivered Excel Workbooks (on page 50).
Several sheets are common to most of the reference data workbooks. These sheets include
comments about the revision history, links to the other sheets, custom interface and attribute
definitions, and hierarchy information. For a list of the common sheets, see Describing the
Common Sheets in the Workbooks (on page 57).
Other sheets in the workbooks contain component-specific information for objects in reference
data. These sheets define part classes, which are groups of related objects. Each part class
contains one or more parts, which are unique instances of that type of object. For example, a
part class can be Inline Centrifugal Fans. The parts in that part class could be models that run
1/3, 1/6, or 1/8 horsepower. Part class names must be unique across the entire Catalog.
However, you can relate the same unique part class to different disciplines, such as piping and
equipment.

Before you modify a workbook, save a backup copy. That way, you can always bulk load the
previous data.
Do not modify the contents of the GUIDs sheets in the delivered sample workbooks or in
workbooks that you used to create the Catalog database set for a project.
Naming limitations exist for some of the reference data. For example, custom attribute
names and sheet names cannot exceed 30 characters. In addition, you cannot use reserved
keywords and special characters in the names. For more information, see Appendix: Name
Limitations in Reference Data (on page 293).

Minimum Reference Data
When you create a new catalog, you must bulk load a minimum amount of reference data in
order for the software to function properly. You must bulk load the workbook(s) for the
disciplines that you want to work with and any other workbooks with related data such as
codelists, naming rules, and so forth.
For example, if you want to create a catalog for piping and equipment only, bulk load
AllCodelists.xls, AllCommon.xls, Equipment.xls, EquipmentComponent.xls,
GenericNamingRules.xls, InsulationData.xls, Shapes.xls (for designed equipment),
Ten_Specs_SpecificationData.xls, and Ten_Specs_CatalogData.xls.
When using the Bulkload utility to create a new catalog, you must use the
AppRepos.dat template file to create the Catalog Schema. This file is located in [Product
Directory]\DatabaseTemplates on the administrator computer.

Describing the Common Sheets in the Workbooks
The following sheets appear in most of the Excel workbooks, which are located in the [Product
Directory]\CatalogData\BulkLoad\DataFiles folder on the administrator computer.

Legend*
Index*
Custom Interfaces
GUIDs
CatalogRoot

R-Hierarchy
* The Bulkload utility does not process these sheets, so you can enter any comments and
information on them.
In addition to the common sheets, each Excel workbook contains unique sheets. Some of the
unique sheets define classes of objects, and other unique sheets define tabular reference data,
such as pipe specifications. No two sheets in the same workbook can have the same name.

You should not change the sheet name for the Custom Interfaces, R-
ClassNodeDescribes, ClassNodeType, and GUIDs sheets.
Revision History
This sheet contains comments that describe modifications to the workbook, the person who
made the modifications, and the date modified. Updates to this sheet are not mandatory, but
they are recommended for internal tracking purposes. This sheet is not processed by the
Bulkload utility. The text on this sheet is purely for the benefit of change tracking, notes, and
revision records. For more information, see Revision History Sheet (on page 59).
Legend
This sheet provides information about common conventions in the workbook. It lists the
keywords and the associated meanings. This sheet is not processed by the Bulkload utility. For
more information, see Legend Sheet (on page 60).
Index
This sheet provides a list of all the classes in the workbook and links to each sheet. This sheet is
not processed by the Bulkload utility. For more information, see Index Sheet (on page 61).
Custom Interfaces
This sheet defines user attributes that are in the reference data. This sheet describes the names
of attributes, such as length and weight, and contains information about the units of
Using Excel Workbooks to Configure Reference Data


58 SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide

measurement. The Custom Interfaces sheet also defines links between reference data
parameters and parametric symbol arguments.
You can control whether the attributes are Read/Write or Read-Only. For more information
about attribute access, see Controlling Access to Attributes (on page 63).
For more information about custom interfaces and attributes, see Custom Interfaces Sheet (on
page 68). For more information about units of measurement, see Appendix: Units of Measure
(on page 261).
Custom Class Interface List
This sheet lists any additional virtual interfaces that will be implemented by non-virtual classes.
During the bulkload process, these interfaces are mapped to the specified classes. For more
information, see Custom Class Interface List Sheet (on page 70).
GUIDs (Globally Unique Identifiers)
This sheet contains identification numbers for the part classes. For more information, see GUIDs
Sheet (on page 70).
The Custom Interfaces, Custom Class Interface List, and GUIDs sheets are metadata
definition sheets. Familiarity with the metadata is important when copying objects between
models with different catalogs.
CatalogRoot
This sheet defines the name of the root folder for the data in a workbook. The catalog root is the
highest allowable level in the hierarchy for a discipline. For example, in the Equipment.xls
workbook, the root folder is Equipment. This name appears in the Catalog task user interface.
For more information, see CatalogRoot Sheet (on page 74).
ClassNodeType
This sheet allows you to create classification folders in the Catalog hierarchy. A classification
folder is similar to a folder in Windows Explorer, except a classification folder can only contain
other folders, not individual items. The ObjectName column contains the folder object name,
which represents the internal name for the node in the software. The Name column contains the
identifier name that appears in the Catalog task user interface. An example is an item with V205
in the ObjectName column and Towers in the Name column. The Bulkload utility and internal
catalog know the item by its object name, V205. The Catalog task user interface displays the
item name as Towers.
The ClassNodeType sheet does not specify the hierarchy of the classification folders. For more
information, see ClassNodeType Sheet (on page 74).
R-ClassNodeDescribes
This sheet defines the parent-child relationships between the classification folders and the part
classes. This sheet uses the object names of the classification folders and the names of the part
classes. The RelationSource column contains the parents (classification folders), and the
RelationDestination column contains the children (part classes). For example, the Pumps
classification folder is the parent of a part class named Pump. For more information, see
R-ClassNodeDescribes Sheet (on page 74).
R-Hierarchy
This sheet defines the parent-child relationships among the folders in the Catalog hierarchy that
are above the classification folders. This sheet uses the object names of the folders. For
Using Excel Workbooks to Configure Reference Data


SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide 59

example, RefDataEquipmentRoot has a child named Pumps. This sheet does not define new
classification folders or part classes. For more information, see R-Hierarchy Sheet (on page 75).

Revision History Sheet
The Revision History sheet provides a place for you to maintain a written record of the
changes made to the workbook, such as the addition of a new sheet or modifications to existing
sheets. The Bulkload utility does not read or modify this sheet.
When you create or update a workbook, you should note the change on the Revision History
sheet. You must enter the text on this sheet manually; the Bulkload utility does not enter the text
for you. Updating this sheet is not mandatory, but keeping a revision history can be helpful,
especially when multiple users make changes to a workbook.
You can modify the format and content of the Revision History sheet as needed. The only item
that must remain unchanged is the name of the sheet.
Below is some suggested information to include on this sheet.
Worksheet Name - Lists the name of the worksheet that was added, deleted, or modified.
Revision Description - Provides a description of the modifications and additions made to the
workbook. For example, one description might be Added company standard butterfly valve.
By - Provides the name of the person who made the changes. You can provide the name in any
format, such as first name and last name, initials, or Windows network logon name.
Date - Lists the date that the revisions were made. You can provide the date in any format, such
as mm/dd/yy or dd/mm/yy.
Version Implemented - Lists the version of software in which the revision is included.
Not all workbooks have the Version Implemented column on this sheet.

Definition Denotes the overall definition of the part class, including
the part class type, symbol definition, and nozzle
identification and types.
The Definition section can contain occurrence attributes,
which are properties that you can change for a specific
part in the model.
You define an occurrence attribute by entering oa: in front
of the property name on the part class sheet in the
workbook. These properties appear on the Occurrence
tab of a Properties dialog box.
SheetName (without the prefix R-) Denotes a worksheet name in the Excel workbook.
ObjectName Denotes a unique object identifier.
LikeThis Denotes a column heading. Italicize the column headings
in the workbook.

Adding and Modifying Custom Interfaces
You should plan the addition and modification of custom interfaces, categories, and attributes in
your catalog. To bulk load interfaces and attributes, you must have write or full control on at
least one of the catalog permission groups, which are defined in Project Management. The
following paragraphs describe the restrictions on additions, modifications, and deletions of the
custom interfaces.
Using Excel Workbooks to Configure Reference Data


62 SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide

Interfaces
You can create a new interface on the Custom Interfaces sheet and then add it to the catalog
using the Bulkload utility. You can also add an interface by adding an attribute associated with
the interface to an existing part class sheet and running the Bulkload utility in the
Add/Modify/Delete mode.
You can delete an existing interface by typing the letter D in the first column of the interface row.
This action does not actually delete the interface from the database; it removes the interface
from all of its implemented classes.
You should not modify the name of an interface, but you can change the category to which it
was assigned.
If you add new interfaces after creating the Reports databases, you must re-generate the
Reports databases in order to report on the new interfaces. If you modify an existing part class,
you also must run the Synchronize Model with Catalog command in Project Management on
any model that has occurrences of the class that you modified. (In addition, re-synchronizing the
model with the catalog requires re-generation of the Reports databases).
For more information about re-generating database views and synchronizing the model, see the
Project Management User's Guide.
When you add, modify, or delete an interface, the Bulkload utility re-generates views, but
only virtual interface views and relation views (not interface views).
Categories
Categories are listed in the Property Categories codelist. If you want to use a new category
name on an interface, you must add the new category name in the codelist and then bulk load.
You can modify category names by editing the codelist.
Categories are across a model and dependent on the catalog. If multiple models make use of
the same catalog, then the two models' interfaces and attributes are categorized identically.
Attributes
You can add attributes to existing interfaces by typing A in the first column of the rows to add.
You can also modify some attribute data. For example, you can modify the text in the Attribute
User Name column, and you can change the category in which the attributes appear (for
example, in the Standard, Dimensions, or other category). The category is governed by the
CategoryName column on the Custom Interfaces sheet.
However, you cannot delete existing attributes after bulk loading them. If you try to delete
existing attributes, the Bulkload utility will include warnings in the log file.
In addition to adding custom interfaces to part classes, you can add custom interfaces for
systems and interference checking objects. The software includes sample workbooks that
demonstrate how to add custom interfaces to systems and IFC objects. For more information,
see Appendix: Other Reference Data (on page 295).

Using Excel Workbooks to Configure Reference Data


SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide 63


Controlling Access to Attributes
It is possible to control whether an attribute can be modified or not. You can specify that certain
attributes are Read-Only, and others are Read/Write.
Grouping Attributes
Because the Bulkload utility adds the entire interface when it processes an attribute, an attribute
that needs to be Read- Only should have its own interface, or it should be grouped into an
interface with other Read-Only attributes.
The following picture shows one-to-one relationships between attributes and interfaces on an
example CustomInterfaces sheet. There is one attribute per interface.

It is not recommended that every attribute in the catalog have its own interface due to
performance concerns. The recommended procedure is to group parameters logically, so that
an interface contains either all Read-Only attributes, or all Read/Write attributes.
Using Excel Workbooks to Configure Reference Data


64 SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide

Assigning Read-Only to Attributes
You can specify that an attribute is Read-Only by setting the flag on the CustomInterfaces
sheet.

The attribute will be Read-Only for every part class in the workbook. If users will need to
change the value of the attribute for one type of part but should not have access to the same
attribute on another part, than this approach cannot be used.
The Read-Only flag is set on the part that is placed on the model, and it is also set on the
attribute in the Catalog database.
Bulkloading Attributes
The following steps happen when the Bulkload utility adds attributes to a part class.
1. The interfaces are defined in the Catalog Schema. These interfaces come from the
CustomInterfaces sheet that appears in each workbook.
2. A part class is added to the Catalog Schema.
3. The Bulkload utility processes the part class and adds it to the Catalog database, along with
its attributes.
4. The Bulkload utility processes the attributes on the part class sheet. Here is what the
Bulkload utility does:
Gets each attribute and looks for its interface on the CustomInterfaces sheet.
Adds the interface to the Catalog Schema and gives the attribute the appropriate
(Read/Write or Read-Only) access.
Every attribute in an interface is given the same access.

SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide 65

Moving Attributes to New Interfaces
The following procedure moves attributes to new interfaces in the catalog. In this example, a
group of attributes is split among two new interfaces.
1. Delete the interface on which the attributes had been placed. Locate the interface on the
CustomInterfaces sheet, and type a D in the first column in that row. Run the Bulkload
utility in the Add/Modify/Delete mode.

2. On the CustomInterfaces sheet, create new interfaces and group the attributes.

Using Excel Workbooks to Configure Reference Data


66 SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide

3. To use the new interfaces, all part classes and items that use the attributes must now be
modified. On a part class sheet, type an M in the first column of every row that uses the
interfaces, including both the part class and item.

4. Run the Bulkload utility in the Add/Modify/Delete mode. This operation adds the interfaces
from the CustomInterfaces sheet and modifies each part class and item to use the
attributes from the new interfaces.
5. Synchronize the model and catalog to update all model occurrences to use the attributes
form the new interfaces. For more information about synchronizing, see the Project
Management User's Guide.
If the part class sheets use fully qualified interface names (example:
Interface::UserAttribute<Symbol Parameter>), you must edit the names on the part class sheets
to reflect the new interfaces. Remember that the same attribute name can be used in multiple
interfaces as long as a fully qualified name is used to define it for a part class.
Occurrence Attributes
Occurrence attributes are attributes with Read/Write access. These attributes are denoted by
oa: at the top of a part class sheet.

In the software, occurrence attributes appear on the Properties dialog boxes, on the
Occurrence tab or Parameters tab. If all oa: attributes are removed from the part class sheet,
and the Bulkload utility is run, then all of the attributes will be Read-Only (grayed-out) on the
Properties dialog boxes for parts in that part class.

Add User Attributes to a Class
1. Open the Systems.xls file, which is delivered in the [Product
Directory]\CatalogData\DataFiles\BulkLoad\SampleDataFiles folder. This file provides a
sample that you can follow during this procedure.
2. Create a new workbook.
3. Click Insert > Worksheet, and add two sheets: CustomInterfaces and
CustomClassInterfaceList.
4. On the CustomInterfaces sheet, type a name in the InterfaceName column.

This interface will contain the attributes that you want to add.
Begin the interface name with "IJUA".
5. In the Category column, type a category, if necessary.

If you do not type a category name (leave the column blank), the custom attributes will
appear in the Standard category in the software.
To add a new category, you must add the category name to a codelist. For example, in
the delivered AllCodeLists.xls, you would add the category name to the
PropertyCategories sheet and then bulk load. The short description text and the text
on the CustomInterfaces sheet must match.
6. Complete the remaining columns as necessary. For more information about the columns,
see Custom Interfaces Sheet (on page 68).
7. On the CustomClassInterfaceList sheet, type a name in the ClassName column.
You can find this name using the 3D Schema Browser. For example, the pipe run class
name is CPMPipeRun.
8. In the InterfaceName column, type the same name you specified for the new interface on
the CustomInterfaces sheet.
9. Save and exit the workbook.
10. Bulk load the workbook in the Append mode, to ensure the schema update and
regeneration of the views in the database. If you are using any codelists, remember to add
the codelist files on the Bulkload dialog box.
Bulk Load Database with Data (on page 82)

The added attributes are available for all objects in the class that you specified, including the
objects that are already modeled. You can select multiple instances of this class and then
define common values.

68 SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide


Custom Interfaces Sheet
The CustomInterfaces sheet allows you to load a custom schema into the metadata of a
catalog. This sheet defines the customized user interfaces and attributes (properties) for the part
classes in the workbook.
When you bulk load a workbook, the software looks at each user attribute on the class sheets
and uses the Custom Interfaces sheet to decode the information. When an object uses a single
attribute from an interface, the object also inherits all the attributes for that interface regardless
of whether the object uses the other attributes.
The outcome of bulk loading a Custom Interfaces sheet is the GUIDs sheet. The Bulkload
utility creates the GUIDs sheet if you are bulk loading a workbook for the first time. Successive
attempts to load the workbook attempt to reuse the GUIDs available on the GUIDs sheet.
An interface is a collection of attributes. A complete interface definition includes one or more
attribute names with associated data type, unit type, and optional symbol parameter. An
attribute with the same name can exist on more than one interface. On a part class sheet, you
can scope the user attributes based on their interfaces and symbol parameters. The scoping
syntax is Interface::UserAttribute<Symbol Parameter>. For example, for a part class Vessel, the
user attribute Length is a property of an Interface IJUAVessel and the symbol parameter is H. In
a part class Tank, the user attribute Length is a property of an Interface IJUATank and the
symbol parameter is L. Then, the complete definition of the user attribute in each part class is
IJUAVessel::Length<H> and IJUATank::Length<L>.
If the user-attribute name is unique (that is, the attribute is not shared with another interface),
you only need to type the user-attribute name and symbol parameter on the class sheet. In the
preceding example, you can type Length<H> in this case. If the attribute name is unique and
the default symbol parameter is the same on the Custom Interfaces sheet and on the class
sheet, then you only need to type the user attribute name on the class sheet: Length.
When you are adding a new part class that uses custom interfaces, regardless of whether the
custom interfaces already reside in the Catalog database, you must still include the definition of
the custom interfaces for the part class on the Custom Interfaces sheet. This Custom
Interfaces sheet must reside in the same workbook as the part class that you are bulk loading.
You can use the Systems.xls workbook in the [Product
Directory]\CatalogData\BulkLoad\SampleDataFiles folder as a sample when you want to add
customized user attributes to certain objects. An example is adding attributes to pipe runs.
InterfaceName - Specifies the custom interfaces, which are property sets. Start each
user-defined interface name with IJUA. For example, if you want to define a new interface called
CentrifugalPump, name the interface IJUACentrifugalPump. You should not change
system-defined interfaces, which start with IJ.
CategoryName - Specifies the category for the custom interface. System-defined interfaces
(starting with IJ) are in the Standard category by default.
The purpose of the category is to filter the grid on the Properties dialog box and to assist in
reporting queries. When you are working on a part in the model, you can view the categories on
the General or Occurrence tab of the Properties dialog box. All attributes in IJ interfaces
appear in the Standard category, while the attributes in IJUA interfaces appear in their specified
categories.
AttributeName - Specifies the attributes available for the part classes in the workbook. The
names cannot have any blanks or special characters.
The attribute name is the UserAttribute component in the syntax
Interface::UserAttribute<Symbol Parameter>. If the attribute name is unique throughout the
Using Excel Workbooks to Configure Reference Data


SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide 69

catalog's interfaces, then you do not need to specify the Interface:: portion of the syntax
statement.
AttributeUserName - Provides a user-friendly name for the attribute. This name is optional and
can include blank spaces. When users view a Properties dialog box or build a report query for
an object, they see attribute user names, not attribute names.
Attribute user names do not need to be unique within the model.
Type - Specifies the data type for each attribute. For example, many attributes are associated
with the Double data type, which is used for real numbers. Available data types include Bit,
Char, Double, Short, Long, Number, Single, and String. Double and Char are the two most often
used.
UnitsType - Specifies the unit type, which is defined in the software. If there is no unit type, you
can leave this cell blank or type 0. The unit types are defined in the Core component of the
software. For more information, see Appendix: Units of Measure (on page 261) in the
SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide.
PrimaryUnits - Specifies the units for the attribute. If there is no primary unit, you can leave this
cell blank or type 0. Like unit types, primary units are defined in the Core component of the
software. For more information, see Appendix: Units of Measure (on page 261) in the
SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide.
Primary units are the default units for a particular attribute if you do not specify units in user
tasks. For example, if you only type a number for the pump flow rate on a class sheet without
specifying units, the units are whatever you specified in the PrimaryUnits column for the flow
rate attribute.
CodeList - Specifies a codelist for the attribute. If you want the attribute to use a codelist, type
the name of the codelist in this column; otherwise, leave the column blank. The names of the
codelists are listed in the 'Head' line on each sheet in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook. On part
sheets that use the codelisted attribute, specify the numerical value from the codelist.
For example, if you want to use a codelist for the end preparation attribute, type
EndPreparation in the CodeList column on the Custom Interfaces sheet. Then, on a part
sheet that uses this attribute, type 301 to indicate male ends, welded with beveled end.
Do not type a 0 in the Codelist column. Leave it blank if there is not a codelist for
the attribute.
CodeListTableNamespace - Specifies the namespace of the codelist.
The CodeListTableNamespace column is presented as a sample on the Custom Interfaces
sheet in the StructHandrails.xls workbook. One namespace is called REFDAT. For
user-defined codelist tables, the namespace is UDP. For more information, see Select List
(Codelist) Namespaces (on page 144).
OnPropertyPage - Specifies whether the attribute is listed on the Properties dialog box for the
part class. You can type TRUE or 1, or FALSE or 0 in this column. The reason this column
exists is that you might want to prevent users from viewing some attributes on the Properties
dialog boxes.
ReadOnly - Specifies if the attribute is read-only on the user interface. Attributes that are not
read-only are generally occurrence attributes, which are marked with oa: beside their names on
the part class sheets in the class definition section. For more information about occurrence
attributes, see Controlling Access to Attributes (on page 63) in the SmartPlant 3D Reference
Data Guide.
SymbolParameter - Specifies a default symbol input parameter that the interface uses to drive
the symbol. The symbol parameter names cannot have any blanks or special characters.
The symbol parameter name is the <Symbol Parameter> component in the syntax
Interface::UserAttribute<Symbol Parameter>. If the symbol parameter name on the Custom
Using Excel Workbooks to Configure Reference Data


70 SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide

Interfaces sheet is the same as the symbol input variable in the Visual Basic project, the Solid
Edge assembly file, or the Symbol 2D cross section, then you do not need to specify the symbol
parameter portion of the syntax on the class sheet.
If an attribute is used for naming rules only and is not used in a symbol, then you can leave the
SymbolParameter column blank.

Custom Class Interface List Sheet
The CustomClassInterfaceList sheet maps interfaces to classes. Each interface and class
must already exist in the Catalog Schema database. During processing, the Bulkload utility
relates the custom-defined virtual interfaces to the specified non-virtual, system classes. The
utility does not recognize any of the bulkload update modes and does not create new interfaces
or classes while scanning this sheet.
Class Name - Lists the name of the non-virtual class.
Interface Name - Lists the name of the custom virtual interface.

GUIDs Sheet
The GUIDs sheet contains Globally Unique Identifiers, which are registry identifiers. The GUIDs
are visible only in the Excel workbooks; the GUIDs do not appear on the user interface in the
software.
One of the purposes of GUIDs is to create a connection between part classes in reference data
and the occurrences created in the model from those part classes. For example, when you
delete a part class, redefine it, and bulk load the new definition, you should keep the old GUID if
you want any previously-created occurrences in the model to be connected to the new part class
definition in reference data.
Another situation in which GUIDs are used is when you bulk load a spreadsheet to another, new
catalog. The GUIDs for the objects in the new catalog will be exactly the same as those in the
original catalog.
The GUIDs sheet records the GUIDs used when bulkloading the spreadsheet the first time. This
sheet is specific to a particular workbook and contains only those GUIDs of the user classes and
interfaces in that workbook.
The purpose of storing GUIDs is so that you can replace a Catalog database in the middle of a
project. The replacement catalog must have the same name and location as the previous
catalog. The GUIDs sheet helps to avoid the situation in which a replacement Catalog database
causes existing models to become invalid. If the GUIDs were not saved, this situation would be
impossible because the Catalog and Model databases share the same schema.
Two utilities generate GUIDs: the Database Wizard and the Bulkload utility. The Database
Wizard generates GUIDs when creating the Catalog database set from the delivered
CatalogDB.dat file. The Bulkload utility generates GUIDs when creating a new Catalog database
set using the New mode. When the Bulkload utility creates new GUIDs, it uses Excel to write
these values to the workbooks. You must not have any Excel instances running when bulk
loading, or the process locks.
After you have bulk loaded a catalog using Excel workbooks, you must not modify the GUID
entries in the workbooks used to create the live database. Only the Bulkload utility should
change data on a GUIDs sheet that is linked to a live Catalog database.
It is essential that you not manually modify any generated GUIDs.
Class/InterfaceName - Lists the part class names and interface names of the classes defined in
the workbook. Custom interfaces are defined on the Custom Interfaces sheet.
PackageName - Lists the packages, if applicable, for the class and interface names.
Using Excel Workbooks to Configure Reference Data


SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide 71

GUID - Contains GUIDs for the part class occurrences and interface occurrences in the model.
The software identifies an occurrence by this GUID when you place an object in the model.
AttributeName - Lists the user attribute names. This column is applicable only to those user
interfaces for which user attributes have been defined. The column is empty for user classes.
DispID - Lists the DispIDs for the user attributes. This column is applicable only to those user
interfaces for which user attributes have been defined. The column is empty for user classes.
The AttributeName and DispId columns are necessary for achieving metadata
consistency between multiple catalogs.

Part Class Sheets
Topics
Part Class Sheet ............................................................................ 71

Part Class Sheet
Many of the reference data workbooks contain part class sheets. Each part class sheet consists
of the class definition and the parts definition. The class definition is marked with the keyword
Definition, and the parts definition is marked with the keywords Head/Start/End.
Once you delete a part class, you cannot re-create it in the Catalog using the same
name. Internally, a record of it is kept after you delete the part class. You can re-create the part
class under a different part class name. The part items in the part class can remain the same
(same names).
Class Definition
The class definition portion contains information for the entire class. When you define the
individual parts, you can override the class information. If you do not redefine the information for
a specific part, the software uses the information for the entire class.
Part Class Type - Specifies the type of part class. The part class types are defined on the Part
Class Types sheet in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook.
The Bulkload utility processes a new part class only if the type in the Part Class Type column is
in the Part Class Types select list. This check is for both specific part class types and generic
part class types.
Symbol Definition - Specifies the symbol file for the part class. The following list shows the
symbol file for each application that you can use to create the symbols.
Visual Basic: Project.Class Module
Solid Edge: Assembly (.asm) file
SmartPlant 3D 2D Symbols: Symbol (.sym) file
The following columns in the class definition are optional.
Codebase - Specifies the symbol's cabinet file name relative to the location in the Symbol and
custom program file location box on the Bulkload dialog box. If you specify a Codebase
value, the symbol code downloads the symbol .dll file from the cabinet file located on the symbol
server.
Here is an example of an entry in the Codebase cell.
%CAB_SERVER%\Pump.CAB

Enter the text CAB_SERVER literally; do not replace it with a server name.
Using Excel Workbooks to Configure Reference Data


72 SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide

The Codebase column must be in the class definition section, not the parts definition
section.
The purpose of using cabinet files to package symbols is to avoid the requirement of registering
the symbols on each client. For more information about creating symbol packages, see the
SmartPlant 3D Symbols Reference Data Guide available from the Help > Printable Guides
command in the software.
Symbol Icon - Specifies a graphic file for the part class. You can view this graphic in the
Catalog task interface or on a Properties dialog box in the software.
If the part class worksheet has a symbol icon file name present, but the symbol icon file is
missing from the SharedContent share, then the Bulkload utility generates a warning in its log
file.
User Class Name - Sets the user class name. This name is also known as a definition class
name. You can use this field to provide a more meaningful name for the class or a name with
spaces in it. This name appears in the Catalog task and Catalog browser control.
Occ Class Name - Sets the occurrence class name. This name appears in the business object
hierarchy on the Object Type tab on the Filter Properties dialog boxes.
Additional columns in the class definition portion can include nozzle and occurrence attribute
(oa:) information. For more information about occurrence attributes, see Controlling Access to
Attributes (on page 63).
Parts Definition
Name - Provides the name of the part.
Part Description - Provides a description for the part.
Other columns in the parts definitions section can include nozzle and attribute information. You
can view these attributes on the Definition tabs of the Properties dialog boxes in the software.
For more information about the parts definitions in each discipline, see the reference data
guides available from the Help > Printable Guides command in the software.

Do not use special characters such as < > . - ! ? + ' % , ; | & ~ * in the names of part classes
(sheet names). The Bulkload utility will not create or modify the part classes if their names
include these characters. Microsoft Excel prevents the use of ! and *, and Bulkload writes an
error message to the log file for the other special characters.
If you add new part classes after creating the Reports databases, you must re-generate the
Reports databases in order to report on the new part classes.
You can type fractional values for NPD (nominal piping diameter) in the class or parts
definition sections. For example, you can type 2-1/2 or 2 1/2. The Bulkload utility interprets
the value as 2.5.
If an attribute is used for naming rules only, then you do not need to define the attribute on a
part class sheet.

Catalog Hierarchy Sheets
You can customize the Catalog hierarchy for multiple levels. Each successive level is designed
to segregate and categorize the reference data.
The last folder in each branch of the hierarchy is called a part class, which contains individual
parts. For example, one part class in the delivered reference data is Horizontal Centrifugal
Pump. The part class contains horizontal centrifugal pumps with different dimensions. The last
folder in a branch can hold rules instead of parts.
The folder directly above a part class folder in the hierarchy is called a classification folder.
Folders above classification folders are termed hierarchy folders. You can add as many
hierarchy folders down through the hierarchy as necessary. Once you define a classification
folder, that classification folder can only contain part classes. Part classes represent the lowest
possible locations in the hierarchy.

If a folder in the hierarchy has children, all the immediate children must be of the same type.
For example, a folder's immediate children can be part classes, or other folders, but not both
part classes and folders.
Internal object names of the hierarchy folders and classification folders must be unique in
the Catalog. Part class names must also be unique.
In the picture, Components and Bends/Elbows are hierarchy folders. The item 45degElbows
is a classification folder, and E45 is a part class.

To customize the Catalog hierarchy, you must edit the Excel workbooks, which contain four
sheets that control the hierarchy: CatalogRoot, ClassNodeType, R-Hierarchy, and
R-ClassNodeDescribes. Hierarchy sheets do not contain attribute names; they contain object
names.
Using Excel Workbooks to Configure Reference Data


74 SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide

When you add a part class to the Catalog hierarchy, you must update the hierarchy sheets,
where necessary, in order to see the data in the Catalog task.

R-Hierarchy Sheet (on page 75)

CatalogRoot Sheet
The CatalogRoot sheet defines the root folder for the data in a workbook. The catalog root is
the highest allowable level in the hierarchy for a discipline. For example, the Cabling.xls data is
stored in the Cable root folder in the Catalog task.
Available roots are listed on the Catalog Root sheet in the AllCommon.xls workbook.
Name - Specifies the name of the root folder for that workbook. There cannot be a blank space
or special characters in the name of the root folder.
ClassNodeType Sheet
The ClassNodeType sheet defines the folder object names and corresponding user interface
names.
ObjectName - Specifies the object name of a classification folder. Use this name when you
reference the node on other sheets, such as the R-ClassNodeDescribes sheet. This name
must be unique in the Catalog.
Name - Specifies the user interface name of a classification folder. This name appears in the
Catalog task user interface and does not need to be unique in the Catalog.


R-ClassNodeDescribes Sheet
The R-ClassNodesDescribes sheet maps the classification folder names to the part classes.
For example, the delivered Cabling.xls workbook lists a classification folder called CablesNode.
A classification folder can have one or more part classes. The CablesNode classification folder
is associated with the Power Cables, Communication Cables, Radio Frequency Cables, Fiber
Optic Cables, and Hybrid Cables part classes on the R-ClassNodeDescribes sheet.
All children of a classification folder must be part classes. You cannot mix part
classes with folders beneath a classification folder.
RelationSource - Specifies the classification folder name. This name is the object name in the
ObjectName column on the ClassNodeType sheet. This name must be unique in the Catalog.
For more information, see ClassNodeType Sheet (on page 74) in the SmartPlant 3D Reference
Data Guide.
RelationDestination - Specifies the part classes associated with the classification folder name.
Part class names are the same as sheet names in the workbook and must be unique in the
Catalog. When you select a part class folder in the Catalog task, you see the contents (parts) in
the right pane of the window.
Using Excel Workbooks to Configure Reference Data


SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide 75


R-Hierarchy Sheet
The R-Hierarchy sheet maps parent and child relationships between folders in the Catalog
hierarchy. For example, in the Equipment.xls workbook, one of the parents is CatalogRoot. The
child associated with CatalogRoot is RefDataEquipmentRoot.
These folder names are object names, not names that appear on the user interface. These
names must be unique in the Catalog.
A parent folder can have any number of children. However, a child folder can only have one
parent. A familiar example is the hierarchy of folders in Windows Explorer.
RelationSource - Specifies the parent object names.
RelationDestination - Specifies the children object names.
The R-Hierarchy sheet specifies relationships between all parent and children folders,
except part classes and the classification folders right above the part classes in the hierarchy.
These folders are related on the R- ClassNodeDescribes sheet.

Adding Part Classes to the Catalog
To add a part class to the Catalog hierarchy, you must edit the Excel workbook for your task.
Before you modify a workbook, save a backup copy. That way, you can always bulk
load the previous data.
When you add a part class to an existing classification folder, you just need to edit the
R-ClassNodeDescribes sheet. When you add a part class to a new classification folder, you
must edit the ClassNodeType, R-Hierarchy, and R- ClassNodeDescribes sheets.
You must also add a specific part class sheet to the workbook. You can copy an existing part
class sheet and modify it as necessary. You must create the symbol definition for the new part
using Visual Basic, Solid Edge, or SmartPlant 2D Symbols.
If you add new part classes after creating the Reports databases, you must re- create the
Reports databases in order to report on the new part classes.

Add Part Classes to New Classification Folders

Before you begin this procedure, you should create a symbol definition for the part class that
you will add. You can use Visual Basic or Solid Edge to create the symbol definition. For
more information about symbols, see the SmartPlant 3D Symbols Reference Data Guide
available from the Help > Printable Guides command in the software.
In the Excel workbook for your task, copy and rename an existing sheet with the name of
the part class that you want to add. The example in this procedure uses
MyDistillationColumn as the part class.

It is helpful to draw a picture of the reference data hierarchy that you want before following
this procedure.
This picture shows the hierarchy in the procedure example.

1. Open a reference data workbook in Microsoft Excel.
2. On the ClassNodeType sheet, insert a row before the End keyword and enter a name for
the classification folder in the ObjectName column. For example, if you want to add a part
class called MyDistillationColumn to the hierarchy, this part class can be grouped under a
classification folder that contains distillation columns. In our example, enter
DistillationColObj in the ObjectName column.
The object name of the classification folder is important because you will use it again in
this procedure.
3. Also on the ClassNodeType sheet, enter the user interface name for the classification
folder in the Name column. This name appears in the Catalog task user interface. In our
example, type DistillationColumns.
4. On the R-Hierarchy sheet, relate the folder object names in the hierarchy. In our example,
CatalogRoot is a parent to RefDataEquipmentRoot. The default hierarchy contains
CatalogRoot in the RelationSource column and RefDataEquipmentRoot in the
RelationDestination column.
5. Also on the R-Hierarchy sheet, in another row, type RefDataEquipmentRoot in the
RelationSource column and DistillationColObj in the RelationDestination column.
All folders must be related in the hierarchy on the R-Hierarchy sheet, except the
classification folder and the part class (these folders are related on the R-
ClassNodeDescribes sheet).
6. On the R- ClassNodeDescribes sheet, relate the part class to the classification folder
above the part class in the hierarchy. In the RelationSource column, type
DistillationColObj. This name matches the object name of the classification folder that you
entered on the ClassNodeType sheet. In the RelationDestination column, type the name
of the part class, MyDistillationColumn.
Using Excel Workbooks to Configure Reference Data

7. Mark all of the rows that you added on the ClassNodeType, R-Hierarchy, and
R-ClassNodeDescribes sheets with the letter A.
8. Bulk load the workbook in the Add/Modify/Delete mode.

Before you begin this procedure, you should create a symbol definition for the part class that
you will add. You can use Visual Basic or Solid Edge to create the symbol definition. For
more information about symbols, see the SmartPlant 3D Symbols Reference Data Guide
available from the Help > Printable Guides command in the software.
In the Excel workbook for your task, copy and rename an existing sheet with the name of
the part class that you want to add. The example in this procedure uses MyPump as the
part class.

It is helpful to draw a picture of the reference data hierarchy that you want before following
this procedure.
This picture shows the hierarchy in the procedure example.

1. Open a reference data workbook in Microsoft Excel.
2. On the R-ClassNodeDescribes sheet, relate the part class to the classification folder above
the part class in the hierarchy. In the RelationSource column, type Pumps. This name
matches the object name of the Pumps classification folder on the ClassNodeType sheet.
In the RelationDestination column, type the name of the part class, MyPump.
3. Mark the row that you added with the letter A.
4. Bulk load the workbook in the Add/Modify/Delete mode.

Using the Bulkload Modes
In order to use reference data in the software, you can transfer data in the Excel workbooks to
the Catalog database using the Bulkload utility.
Bulkloading is a process that imports data from the Excel workbooks into the Catalog database.
You should back up the workbooks as needed before you make modifications and begin the
loading process.
The loading process has several modes available: New, Append, Add/Modify/Delete, and Delete
and Replace. In addition, the Bulkload utility includes an option for creating flavors of Solid Edge
parts.
The time taken by the bulk loading process varies. More time is required when a schema
change (such as adding a codelist value, a new interface, or a part class) is made. Schema
changes trigger the re-creation of the views in the database.
In the Append and Add/Modify/Delete modes, the Bulkload utility first looks for the default
permission group in which to create the objects. If the default permission group is not found,
then the utility creates the objects in the first available permission group to which the user has
write access.
New
You should use the New mode when you are creating a new Catalog database.
The New mode is different from the Append and the Add/Modify/Delete modes in that a live
database set (Catalog and Catalog Schema) is not already available on the server. In the New
mode, you choose the database type and enter a name for the catalog that you want to create.
You also select a template file to create the Catalog Schema.
When you run the Bulkload utility in the New mode, the utility creates interfaces. For information
on limitations associated with interfaces, see Custom Interfaces Sheet (on page 68).
Append
You can use the Append mode when you want to add data from many new workbooks or
worksheets to the Catalog database. When you use this mode, the software scans the data and
adds only the new classes and parts to the database. The software does not observe any
Add/Modify/Delete flags in this mode.
The Append mode is normally used for large updates to the catalog.

Add/Modify/Delete
The Add/Modify/Delete mode is best used when you are modifying the database on a smaller
scale or when you are modifying pre-existing classes. In this mode, the Bulkload utility scans the
workbooks for flags at the beginning of each row. The table below defines the flags and the
actions associated with them.
Flag Operation Notes
A Add The Bulkload utility adds the object to the
database and removes the letter A from the
row upon successful addition.
M Modify The Bulkload utility modifies the object in
the database and removes the letter M from
the row upon successful modification.
D Delete The Bulkload utility deletes the object, but
does NOT remove the letter D. You must
verify that the object was deleted using the
log file.
For example, if the Bulkload utility sees an M at the beginning of a row, the software modifies
that entry in the Catalog database with the changes in that row.
The Bulkload utility removes the A and M designations from the workbooks during the loading
process. However, the rows marked with D are still marked with D. You can open the workbooks
with rows marked D and comment out those rows manually after the bulkload. Type the ! symbol
at the beginning of each row that you want to comment out. If you do not remove or comment
out the deleted rows, you will receive errors the next time that you bulk load because the
Bulkload utility will attempt to delete objects that no longer exist in the catalog.
You should be aware of the rules that affect deleting part classes and parts. You can delete a
part class by typing a D at the beginning of the Definition row on the part class sheet. When
you delete a part class, you cannot reuse the part class name in the same database set.
However, if you delete parts (line items within a class, not the class itself), you CAN reuse the
names of the parts.
To modify a part name, you can use a combination of deleting and adding operations. Copy a
part row, insert the row in the Head/Start/End section, and change the name. Then mark the
original row with D and the inserted row with A. The row marked with D must come before the
row marked with A going from top to bottom on the sheet. The reason is that the bulkload
operations occur sequentially from top to bottom on a sheet.
To modify a UserClassName or OccClassName, place an M at the beginning of the row and
enter the new names in the UserClassName and OccClassName cells.

Loading Reference Data into the Catalog


SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide 81

Delete and Replace
The Delete and Replace mode is useful when you would like to replace all the data in the
Catalog database with the data currently in Excel workbooks. New part classes are appended to
the Catalog.
This option has some limitations. You can change the definition of a part class, but you cannot
change the part class type. Also, this option is not supported for sheets common to all the
workbooks, including the ClassNodeType and R- Hierarchy sheets. If you bulk load these
unsupported sheets, the utility writes a warning to the log file and does not process the sheets.
When this mode is used to replace entire piping material classes (for example, 1C0031), only
those piping material classes appearing in the bulkloaded workbook are deleted and replaced.
All other piping material classes in the database are unaffected.
If you are re-creating part classes or parts, you must include the R-
ClassNodeDescribes sheets in the workbooks in order to establish relationships among the
hierarchical nodes in the reference data.
The table below lists the data types and whether or not they are compatible with the Delete and
Replace mode.

Create Flavors
The Create flavors option computes and stores in the catalog the specific geometry for each
different size of a part class. Flavors apply to Solid Edge parts only. You can use the Create
flavors option with any of the bulkloading modes.
For example, the reference data might include two parts with different symbol input parameters.
Both parts refer to the same Solid Edge assembly set. At the time of bulkloading, if you select
the Create flavors option, then the Bulkload utility creates a one-to-one relationship symbol
using the symbol parameters for each part and stores this symbol in the Catalog database. If
you do not select the Create flavors option, then at placement time in the model, the
workstation placing the symbol performs the parameterized changes to the symbol, based on
the reference data, before the placement.
You can add flavors for Solid Edge parts that are already in the catalog. Mark the rows for the
parts with M and bulk load in the Add/Modify/Delete mode with the Create flavors option
selected.
To bulk load flavors for Solid Edge parts, Solid Edge must be installed on the computer
performing the bulkload process. To place Solid Edge equipment without flavors in the catalog,
the workstation performing the placement must have Solid Edge installed.

Bulk Load Database with Data

You should back up all Excel workbooks before modifying them and bulk loading. All of the
workbooks are delivered with read-only properties.
When you use the Bulkload utility to create a new Catalog, the Excel workbooks for the
Hangers and Supports task must appear last in the list. If they are not placed at the end of
the input files list, errors will be generated in the log file.
Do this procedure on a workstation computer with the Bulkload component and SmartPlant
3D Server Connectivity component installed. Log on with a user name that has database
ownership privileges. For more information about necessary components, see the
SmartPlant 3D Installation Guide available from the Help > Printable Guides command in
the software.
You should close all Excel workbooks before starting the bulkload. Do not open Excel during
the bulkload.
1. Click Start > Programs > Intergraph SmartPlant 3D > Database Tools > Bulkload

3. In the Excel codelist files box, click the browse button to specify the codelist
workbooks.
You must specify a workbook in this box if you are creating a new catalog, adding a
new codelist, or modifying an existing codelist. In all other cases, you are not required to
populate this box.
4. Under Bulkload mode, select a mode for the bulkloading process.
Mode Description
Bulk load to a new catalog Creates a new Catalog database.
Append to existing catalog Adds new classes only to an
existing database.
Add, modify, or delete
records in existing catalog
Reads flags in Excel workbook to
add, modify, or delete data.
Delete and replace Deletes all records in the Catalog
database and replaces with data in
Excel workbooks. New part classes
are appended to the Catalog.
If you are re-creating part classes or parts, you must include the
R-ClassNodeDescribes sheets in the workbooks in order to establish relationships among
the hierarchical nodes in the reference data.
5. If you want to store geometry for each unique part defined by the Solid Edge model, select
Create flavors.

Do not select Create flavors when you are creating symbols.
The Create flavors option can increase the time needed for the bulkload process. If you
are loading Solid Edge flavors, you must have Solid Edge installed on the bulkload
computer.
6. If you are working in a test catalog or a training environment, you can clear the Update
Object Type Hierarchy and Catalog Views check box to reduce bulkloading time.
However, if you are in a production environment, leave this option selected.
7. Under Catalog information, select either MSSQL or ORACLE in the Database Type box.
This box is enabled only if you are creating a new database set.
If you selected MSSQL, select the name of a server in the Database server name box.
This location is where the Catalog database and schema are stored (or will be stored, if
you are creating a new database set).
If you selected ORACLE, select the name of the Oracle net service for the Catalog
database connection in the Oracle Service box. The service must exist before you
choose it in this box.
8. In the Database name box, select the name of the Catalog database that you want to
update with new reference data.

To create a new database, select <New Database>, and you can type a name for the
new database.

9. If you are modifying an existing catalog, select the Catalog Schema database name in the
Schema database name box.
The Schema server name box is read-only. The software completes this box with the
name of the database server that you selected in the Database server name box.
10. If you are creating a new catalog, click the browse button beside the Template file to
be used to create schema box to specify the template file for the Catalog Schema.
For MSSQL, use the AppRepos.dat file to create the Catalog Schema. This file is
located in [Product Directory]\DatabaseTemplates on the server computer.
For ORACLE, use the AppRepos.dmp file to create the Catalog Schema. This file is
located in [Product Directory]\DatabaseTemplates on the server computer.
11. In the Log file box, click the browse button to specify the name and location of the log
file.

The default location for the log file is [Product
Directory]\CatalogData\BulkLoad\DataFiles, but you can change this location.
You must have write privileges to the folder in which you are saving the log file.
The log file name must not contain any special characters. However, you can use the
back slash when specifying a UNC path to a log file.
You must use the file extension .log for the log file.
12. If you are bulk loading to a new catalog, click the browse button under Symbol and
custom program file location and select a SharedContent folder on the server.

This box is populated automatically if you are using the Append, Add/Modify/Delete, or
Delete and Replace modes. You should not modify the location unless you are sure that
you want to change the symbol path for the catalog.
To allow all workstations to access the symbols, specify a UNC path to a shared folder
on a remote computer, such as the server. The server setup installs the contents of the
SharedContent folder under [Product Directory]\CatalogData, so if the computer name
is smith, you can type \\smith\SharedContent. At a minimum, users need read access
to this share. They need change access in order to modify the symbols.
13. Click Load. You can see messages in the status bar of the Bulkload utility while it is running.
If you interrupt the bulkloading process, you may see a Switch To/Retry message.
Click Switch To to return to the bulkloading process.

Bulkload Dialog Box
This utility sets options for adding reference data from Excel workbooks to the Catalog
database.
Excel files - Displays one or more Excel workbooks for loading into the Catalog database.
These workbooks contain the reference data.
The software bulk loads the files in the order they are listed in the Excel files box.
Add - Lists additional Excel workbooks in the Excel files box.
Delete - Removes currently selected Excel workbooks from the Excel files box.
Excel codelist files - Lists the codelist Excel workbooks. Click the browse button to access
the Open dialog box, which allows you to select one or more Excel codelist workbooks for
loading into the Catalog Schema database. To remove a codelist workbook, you must click
Reset to clear all boxes on the Bulkload dialog box.
You must select a codelist workbook when one of the following criteria is met:
You have updated the codelist information and want to bulk load the modified data into the
live database.
You are creating a new catalog with the Bulkload to a new catalog option.
For all other instances, the Excel codelist files box can remain empty.
Bulkload mode - Allows you to select the type of bulkload.
Bulkload to a new catalog - Select this mode when you want to create a new Catalog
database set. You can use this mode to create a new catalog containing your company data and
not any delivered reference data. In this mode, you must specify a template file for the schema.
Append to the existing catalog - Select this mode when you want to only add new classes to
the Catalog database. In this mode, the software does not read any Add/Modify/Delete flags in
the column beginning each row. Use this mode for large updates to the catalog.
Add, modify, or delete records in existing catalog - Select this mode when you want to
modify the Catalog database on a smaller scale than in the Append mode. Use the
Add/Modify/Delete mode for small updates to the catalog.
In the Add/Modify/Delete mode, the Bulkload utility scans the workbook(s) for certain flags (A,
M, D) at the beginning of rows. Here are the flags and the actions associated with them:
Letter Designation Operation
A Add
M Modify
D Delete
For example, if the Bulkload utility sees an M at the beginning of a row in the workbook, the
software modifies that entry in the Catalog database.
Loading Reference Data into the Catalog


SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide 87

Delete and replace records in existing catalog - Replaces existing data in the Catalog
database with the data in Excel workbooks. New part classes are appended to the Catalog.
This option has some limitations. You can change the definition of a part class, but you cannot
change the part class type. Also, this option is not supported for sheets common to all the
workbooks, such as the ClassNodeType and R- Hierarchy sheets. If you bulk load these
unsupported sheets, the utility writes a warning to the log file and does not process the sheets.
If you are re-creating part classes or parts, you must include the R-
ClassNodeDescribes sheets in the workbooks in order to establish relationships among the
hierarchical nodes in the reference data.
Create flavors - Select this option when you want to compute and store in the Catalog the
specific geometry for each different size of a part class. This mode allows users to place an
occurrence of a particular part in the model without having a license for Solid Edge on their
computers. However, you must have Solid Edge installed on the administrator computer that
does the bulkload process for the specific parts and flavors.
Update Object Type Hierarchy and Catalog Views - Select this option to update the Object
Type Hierarchy (BOC) and the catalog view after bulkloading the data. Clearing this option will
significantly reduce the time it takes to bulkload the workbooks. However, you should leave this
option selected unless you are bulkloading to a test catalog. Do not bulkload to a production
catalog without making sure this option is selected.
Database Type - Select the type of database, either ORACLE or MSSQL. This box is enabled
only if you are creating a new database set.
The following box is labeled Database server name if you chose MSSQL. It is labeled Oracle
Service if you chose ORACLE.
Database server name - Select the server that stores the Catalog database.
Oracle Service - Select the name of the Oracle net service for the Catalog database
connection.
Database name - Select the name of the Catalog database into which you want to load
reference data. If you are using the Bulkload to a new catalog mode, select <New Database>
and type a name in the Database name box. If you select a site or model database in this box,
the utility displays a notification message.
The following two boxes appear only for the Append and Add/Modify/Delete modes.
Catalog schema server - Displays the name of the server that stores the Catalog Schema
database. This server is the same as the name in the Database server name box.
Catalog schema database - For preexisting catalog sets, select the name of the Catalog
Schema database.

If the necessary schema database does not appear in the Schema database name list,
click <Refresh>. This situation occurs if you created a schema database after opening the
Bulkload dialog box.
If you are using the Bulkload to a new catalog mode, the Catalog schema server and
Catalog schema database boxes do not appear. Instead, complete the box labeled
Template file to be used to create schema.
Template file to be used to create schema - Specifies the template file for the Catalog
Schema.
For MSSQL, use the AppRepos.dat file to create the Catalog Schema. This file is located in
[Product Directory]\DatabaseTemplates on the server computer.
For ORACLE, use the AppRepos.dmp file to create the Catalog Schema. This file is located
in [Product Directory]\DatabaseTemplates on the server computer.
Loading Reference Data into the Catalog


88 SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide

Log file - Click the browse button to specify a location and name for the log file, which
records the bulkloading status, including any error messages. The log file name must follow
operating system constraints and cannot contain any special characters. However, you can use
the backslash when specifying a UNC path to a log file.

You must use the file extension .log for the log file.
You must have write privileges to the folder to which you are saving the log file.
Symbol and custom program file location - Displays the location for symbols in Solid Edge or
Visual Basic format. In the Append and Add/Modify/Delete modes, the Bulkload utility
automatically populates this box with the current symbol location. For these modes, you should
not modify the location unless you are sure that you want to change the symbol path for the
catalog. In the New mode, you can click the browse button to specify the location. You can
also change the location in the Project Management task on the Properties dialog box.
This location is stored in the Catalog database and is accessed by the other tasks at run-time in
order to read and compute the symbol files. To allow all workstations to access the symbols,
specify a UNC path (for example, \\MyServer\SharedContent) to a shared folder on a remote
computer, such as the server. At a minimum, users need read access to this share. They need
change access in order to modify the symbols.
You can also specify a path (such as D:\SharedContent) on the local computer, but this action
does not allow other workstations to access the symbols.
Load - Starts the bulkload.

Uniqueness of Objects
When you want to modify or delete existing objects in the catalog using the Add/Modify/Delete
mode, you must first identify the properties that define the uniqueness of the object.
The reason is that when you modify or delete an object in the catalog, the Bulkload utility needs
to identify a row on the Excel sheet with an existing object in the database. For this purpose,
Bulkload uses certain properties of the object that play a role in naming the object.
For example, in the piping material class table, the piping specification object in the database is
identified by its specification name (SpecName). You can change all the properties on a piping
specification except its SpecName. If you change the SpecName, then the identity of that object
is lost, and hence Bulkload reports an error that it cannot find the object.
The following table lists all objects in alphabetical order and the corresponding unique
properties.

Piping Generic Data Bolted Sheet
The Piping Generic Data Bolted sheet in the AllCommon.xls workbook defines generic data
for bolted piping ends.
Nominal Piping Diameter - Type the nominal piping diameter for the bolted end.
Nominal Diameter Units - Specify the units for the NPD column. For example, type mm or in.
Pressure Rating - Type the pressure rating code for the bolted end. This property defines the
envelope of pressure to which the bolted end may be subjected. Valid codes are listed in the
AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Pressure Rating sheet in the Codelist Number column.
End Preparation - Type the end preparation code for the bolted end. Valid codes are listed in
the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the End Preparation sheet in the Codelist Number column.
End Standard - Type the end standard code for the bolted end. Valid codes are listed in the
AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the End Standard sheet in the Codelist Number column.
Flange Outside Diameter - Type the flange outside diameter of the bolted end.
Flange Thickness - Type the distance from the outermost face of the flange to the back surface
of the flange on which the nut rests. This distance includes any projections that the flange may
have, such as raised-face, only if the manufacturer's data includes any projections. The flange
thickness includes the thickness of the loose flange used, but does not include the wall
thickness of the pipe or stub end for lap-flanged ends. In terms of ASME B16.5 (1996), this
value is considered the minimum flange thickness.
Flange Thickness Tolerance - Type the plus tolerance for the flange thickness. For example,
ANSI B16.5 (1996) specifies the flange thickness tolerance as 1/8" for NPD 18" and smaller,
and a tolerance of 3/16" for NPD 20" and larger.
This value is required for computing bolt lengths, when you (the specification writer) prefer to
express the flange thickness tolerance explicitly and independently of the stud or machine bolt
extension.
Flange Face Projection - Type the value that represents any projections that the flange may
have. An example is a raised-face flange.
Raised Face Diameter - Type the raised-face diameter of the bolted end, if applicable to
raised-face flanged ends. This value is required to compute the outside diameter of the gasket
and the inside diameter of the gasket.
Flange Groove Width - Type the groove width of the bolted end, if applicable to groove-flanged
ends. This value is required to compute the outside diameter of the gasket.
Seating Depth - Type the distance from the outermost surface of the bolted end to the seating
surface of the gasket. This column has a value only for small groove flanged, large groove
flanged, small female flanged, large female flanged, small groove lap flanged, large groove lap
flanged, small female lap flanged, large female lap flanged, ring type joint flanged, and
mechanical joints. This value represents the groove depth for ring type joint flanged ends.
Bolt Circle Diameter - Type the diameter of the circle of bolt holes on the face of flange. This
property applies only to circular drilling templates.
Quantity of Bolts Required - Type the number of bolts required for the bolted end.
Bolt Diameter - Type the diameter of the bolts for the bolted end.
AllCommon Reference Data


SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide 105

Body Outside Diameter - Type the outside diameter of the body of the fitting at the bolted end.
You can still choose to define the body outside diameter with the piping commodity part
data (or piping specialty part data or instrument part data) for certain fittings. This actual body
outside diameter is required for rack piping to match the bottom pipe of the adjacent straight
runs, not only for aesthetic purposes, but also to ensure that, if the body portion of the
component rests on steel, the correct centerline is maintained. Using inaccurate data, in some
cases, will cause false interferences to be reported, and, in other cases, leave diameter
mismatches with adjacent piping.
Drilling Template Pattern - Type the drilling pattern code for the bolted end. This code
represents the arrangement of bolt holes at the bolted end. Valid codes are listed in the
AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Drilling Template Pattern sheet in the Codelist Number
column. For pictures of common drilling patterns, see Bolt Hole Patterns (on page 105).
Bolt Pattern Length - Type the bolt pattern length for the bolted end.
Bolt Pattern Width - Type the bolt pattern width for the bolted end.
Bolt Pattern Offset - Type the bolt pattern offset for the bolted end.

Piping Generic Data Female Sheet
The Piping Generic Data Female sheet in the AllCommon.xls workbook defines generic data
for female piping ends.
Nominal Piping Diameter - Type the nominal piping diameter for the female end.
Nominal Diameter Units - Specify the units for the NPD column. For example, type mm or in.
Pressure Rating - Type the pressure rating code for the female end. Note that the pressure
rating is used as the basis of the female end generic data, if the schedule is undefined.
Typically, a female fitting will not be defined with both a pressure rating and a schedule value.
The Pressure Rating property defines the envelope of pressure to which the female end may
be subjected. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Pressure Rating
sheet in the Codelist Number column.
End Preparation - Type the end preparation code for the female end. Valid codes are listed in
the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the End Preparation sheet in the Codelist Number column.
End Standard - Type the end standard code for the female end. Valid codes are listed in the
AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the End Standard sheet in the Codelist Number column.
Schedule - Type the schedule (or thickness) for the female end. This value is required only for
those female ends where the female end generic data is determined on the basis of the
schedule, and not the pressure rating.
The schedule is used as the basis of the female end generic data, if the pressure rating is
undefined. Typically, a female fitting is not defined with both a pressure rating and a schedule
value.
Socket Diameter - Type the socket, or thread, diameter of the female end.
Socket Depth - Type the socket depth for the female end.
This property also represents the 'length through hub' dimension for the non-bolted end of
slip-on flanges. Otherwise, the existence of a value for socket depth and socket offset will
indicate a socket-welded end.
Socket Offset - Type the offset of the socket for the female end. The typical engineering
practice is a 1/16" offset.
Thread Depth - Type the depth of the exposed threads for the female end. The existence of a
value for thread depth indicates a threaded end.
Hub Outside Diameter - Type the hub outside diameter of the female end.
This data is optional because it is generally not represented as a standard. You can provide this
data for those situations where a detailed representation of the female end is required.
Hub Thickness - Type the hub thickness of the female end.
This data is optional, since it is generally not represented as a standard. You can provide this
data for those situations where a detailed representation of the female end is required.
Body Outside Diameter - Type the outside diameter of the body of the fitting at the female end.
If you do not define a value here, the outside diameter must be available in the plain piping
generic data for the same value of the end standard property.
You can still choose to define the body outside diameter with the piping commodity part
data (or piping specialty part data or instrument part data) for certain fittings. This actual body
outside diameter is required for rack piping to match the bottom pipe of the adjacent straight
runs, not only for aesthetic purposes, but also to ensure that if the body portion of the
component rests on steel, the correct centerline is maintained. Using inaccurate data, in some
cases, will cause false interferences to be reported, and, in other cases, leave diameter
mismatches with adjacent piping.
AllCommon Reference Data


SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide 111

Piping Generic Data Mechanical Sheet
The Piping Generic Data Mechanical sheet in the AllCommon.xls workbook defines generic
data for mechanical piping ends.
Nominal Piping Diameter - Type the nominal piping diameter for the mechanical end.
Nominal Diameter Units - Specify the units for the NPD column. For example, type mm or in.
Pressure Rating - Type the pressure rating code for the mechanical end.
Note that, typically, a mechanical end does not have a value for pressure rating. If so, the
mechanical end generic data can be defined without pressure rating. In other words, some
mechanical ends may require pressure rating, while other mechanical ends will not.
The Pressure Rating property defines the envelope of pressure to which the mechanical end
may be subjected. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the Pressure
Rating sheet in the Codelist Number column.
End Preparation - Type the end preparation code for the mechanical end. Valid codes are
listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the End Preparation sheet in the Codelist Number
column.
End Standard - Type the end standard code for the mechanical end. Valid codes are listed in
the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the End Standard sheet in the Codelist Number column.
Groove Depth - Type the groove depth for the mechanical end.
Groove Width - Type the groove width for the mechanical end.

Insulation Thickness Table Sheet
The Insulation Thickness Table sheet defines all possible sizes, temperature ranges, and
insulation thicknesses available for the insulation specifications. Before defining ranges and
insulation thicknesses on this sheet, you must list the insulation specifications on the Insulation
Spec sheet.
Spec Name - Type the insulation specification for which you want to define thickness ranges.
NPD Low - Specify the smallest pipe diameter to be considered in this range.
NPD High - Specify the largest pipe diameter to be considered in this range.
NPD Unit Type - Specify the units of measure for the NPD Low and NPD High columns. Each
delivered insulation specification is defined in both imperial and metric units.
Temperature Low - Specify the lowest temperature to be considered in this range. Include the
temperature unit of measure (K for Kelvin, F for Fahrenheit, or C for Celsius) when specifying
this value.
Temperature High - Specify the highest temperature to be considered in this range. Include the
temperature unit of measure (K for Kelvin, F for Fahrenheit, or C for Celsius) when specifying
this value.
The temperature from the 3D model must be greater than the lower bound and less than or
equal to the upper bound. The exception is the lowest range in each section on this sheet,
where the temperature can be greater than or equal to the lower bound and less than or equal to
the upper bound.
For example, the lowest range for insulation made of calcium silicate is 100F 400F. Therefore,
you can enter 100F. Note the = sign between Temp_lo and t in the following expression.
Temp_lo <= t <= Temp_hi
For the other ranges, such as 401F 500F in the calcium silicate section, you can only enter a
number between and including 402F 500 F. Note there is no = sign between Temp_lo and t in
the following expression.
Temp_lo < t <= Temp_hi

Component Insulation Exclusion Sheet
The Component Insulation Exclusion Rule nodesheet in the InsulationData.xls workbook
helps to eliminate false clashes involving piping and instrument components. This rule identifies
conditions under which a component, such as an instrument indicator, is not insulated although
it exists on an insulated line. Another example is that valves, flanges, and unions that are
typically not insulated for personnel protection. This rule does not have any effect on runs whose
Insulation Purpose is set to Undefined.
The components that are not to be insulated are determined on the basis of the piping
commodity type; the first size range; the second size range; the Multi-Size Option; the Heat
Tracing Requirement (heat traced or not), the Insulation Requirement (hot or cold insulation),
and the Insulation Temperature.
The software uses the following convention to determine the temperature to use as the basis of
the rule:
If the piping designer has specified the pipeline insulation temperature, then that insulation
temperature is used.
If the pipeline insulation temperature is undefined, then the heat tracing medium
temperature for jacketed piping (the operating temperature of the jacket fluid) is used.
Otherwise, if the heat tracing medium temperature is undefined, or non-jacketed piping is
being used, the temperature is determined on the basis of these case conditions:
If hot insulation applies, the maximum temperature of the applicable (maximum) case
conditions is used.
If cold insulation applies, the minimum temperature of the applicable (minimum) case
conditions is used.
First Size From - Enter the smallest size in the first size range for this rule.
First Size To - Enter the largest size in the first size range for this rule.
First Size Units - Enter the units of measurement for the first size values, for example, in or
mm.
Heat Tracing Medium - Select the heat-tracing medium to which the rule applies. Valid codelist
numbers are specified on the Heat Tracing Medium sheet in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook in
the Codelist Number column.
Heat Tracing Type - Select the heat-tracing type to which the rule applies.
Heat Tracing Requirement - Select the heat-tracing requirement to which the rule applies.
Insulation Purpose - Select the insulation purpose to which the rule applies. Valid codelist
numbers are specified on the Insulation Purpose sheet in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook in
the Codelist Number column.
Insulation Type - Select the insulation type to which the rule applies.
Insulation Requirement - Select the insulation requirement to which the rule applies.
Insulation Temperature From - Specify the lowest temperature in the temperature range to
which the rule applies.
Insulation Temperature To - Specify the highest temperature in the temperature range to
which the rule applies.
Insulation Reference Data


SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide 119

Multi-Size Option - Type a string to represent an optional piping commodity selection for
multi-sized fittings when the first size and second size are inadequate.
For example, if two additional sizes (2" and 1") are required in addition to a first size of 6" and a
second size of 4", the string that would represent the sizes would be 6x4x2x1. The software
interprets the string to determine the second size and the number of sizes in addition to the first
size and second size. Do not include a unit of measure in the string. The unit of measure for the
first size, defined in the First Size Units column is used.
Piping Commodity Type - Specify the commodity type codelist number for which you are
defining a rule. Valid commodity types codelist numbers are specified on the Piping
Commodity Type sheet in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook in the Codelist Number column.
Piping Commodity Sub Class - Select the piping commodity sub class.
Piping Commodity Class - Select the piping commodity class.
Second Size From - Enter the smallest size in the second size range for this rule.
Second Size To - Enter the largest size in the second size range for this rule.
Second Size Units - Enter the units of measurement for the second size values, for example, in
or mm.

Each task in the software that creates new parts in the model automatically generates a name
for the parts using defined rules.
The reference data for naming rules consists of a list of part classes and associated naming
rules. A Visual Basic program does the naming. You can use the same naming rule for more
than one part class. For more information about Visual Basic rules in the software, refer to the
SmartPlant 3D/SmartMarine 3D Programmer's Guide. This guide is available when you install
the programming resources. For more information about installation, see the "Install Additional
Product Software" section in the SmartPlant 3D Installation Guide.
You can customize the delivered naming rules or create new naming rules. For more
information, see Creating and Distributing Naming Rules (on page 123).
The software often includes new naming rules with each version. If you are migrating your
reference data from a previous version and want to use the new naming rules, you must add the
new naming rules to the GenericNamingRules.xls workbook and then bulk load.
You should not create weld naming rules or use labels that generate weld identifiers with spaces
in them. The WeldNumberLabel allows you to customize weld identifiers on isometric drawings.
This label should not, under any circumstances, result in the generation of an identifier with
spaces in it. Weld identifiers with spaces are not supported.
See Also
Naming Rules Sheets (on page 125)
Naming Rules Sheet (on page 126)
Creating and Distributing Naming Rules
The software makes it possible to create and customize the rules for naming. The process of
customizing naming rules is similar to the process for customizing the symbols. For more
information, see the "Visual Basic Symbols" section in the SmartPlant 3D Symbols Reference
Data Guide available from the Help > Printable Guides command in the software.
The main difference between distributing new symbols and distributing new naming rules is the
point at which the check for new naming rules is made. Each time the Catalog database is
modified through a bulkload operation, the software checks for new naming rules in the CAB
files. Just integrating the naming rule dll into a CAB file is insufficient (as clients do not go look
for it); a bulkload operation that modifies the Catalog is required.
You can specify cab file information in the SolverProgID field on the NamingRules
sheet. The SolverProgID must be in the following format: <ProgID>|<CAB file location>. An
example is Pipeline.UserPipeline|Pipeline.CAB, where the Pipeline.CAB file is delivered in the
\\<ComputerName>\Symbols folder.

Move Custom DLLs to SharedContent Directory
(Option 1)
Starting with version 2009 of SmartPlant 3D, rules DLLs are saved with other reference data in
the SharedContent folder. Use the following workflow to copy your customized rules to this
single location instead of to each client workstation.
1. Recompile each Visual Basic project in a Version 2011 (9.0) Service Pack 1 client
installation.
2. Copy the new DLLs to the [Reference Data Directory]\SharedContent\Custom Symbols
folder.

You can create folders as needed in the Custom Symbols folder, such as a folder for
each task.
If a custom DLL has a localizer DLL, both should be in the same folder.
DLLs ending "Ref.dll" or "_Ref.dll" are treated as reference DLLs and are ignored.
These DLLs do not need to be copied from the client machine containing the rules
Visual Basic source code.
3. In the Project Management task, select a catalog that uses the SharedContent folder.
4. Click Tools > Update Custom Symbol Configuration.
The command creates or updates the file called CustomSymbolConfig.xml in the [Reference
Data Directory]\SharedContent\Xml folder. CustomSymbolConfig.xml contains entries of
ProgID, CLSID, and DLL name for each class in the custom DLLs. After
CustomSymbolConfig.xml is created, the software uses the custom DLLs from the
[Reference Data Directory]\SharedContent\Custom Symbols folder.

The software parses [Reference Data
Directory]\SharedContent\Xml\SystemSymbolConfig.xml first and then
CustomSymbolConfig.xml. If there are duplicate entries in SystemSymbolConfig.xml and
CustomSymbolConfig.xml for the same ProgID, the last entry is used. An error is logged to
error log when a duplicate entry is found. Whenever a symbol or naming rule class needs to
be created, the software follows the following priority:
a. It checks if an entry for the ProgID exists in the xml files. If an entry exists, then the
corresponding DLL is loaded and an instance of the class is created.
b. If an entry does not exist, then the class is registered.
If an entry exists for a ProgID in the xml files, it is used even though another (or same) copy
of the DLL is registered. The order of priority when creating an instance of an object is:
CustomSymbolConfig.xml, SystemSymbolConfig.xml, and then the registry.
When a new custom DLL is added to the [Reference Data Directory]\SharedContent\Custom
Symbols folder, or an existing custom DLL is modified, you must re-run the Tools > Update
Custom Symbol Configuration command in Project Management.
If you choose to use option 1, then the custom DLLs should not be registered.
If any of these components use helper classes and the helper classes are instantiated by
calling "CreateObject", the "CreateObject" needs to be replaced. If the helper class is in the
same project, then "new" can be used instead of "CreateObject". If the helper class is in a
different project, then "SP3DCreateObject" needs to be used instead of "CreateObject".
SP3DCreateObject tries to instantiate the object using the information in xml files. If no entry
Naming Rules Reference Data


SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide 125

is found in xml files for the given ProgID, then it calls "CreateObject". SP3DCreateObject is
implemented in [Product Directory]\Core\Runtime\SP3DCoCreateInstance.dll. When
SP3DCreateObject needs to be used, [Product
Directory]\Core\Runtime\SP3DCoCreateInstance.dll needs to be referenced in the Visual
Basic project. Example usage of SP3DCreateObject is shown below:
Set oHelperObject = SP3DCreateObject(strHelperProgId)
If the symbol class has any public structures or types, they should be made private. For
example:
Public Type InputType
Name As String
Description As String
Properties As IMSDescriptionProperties
uomValue As Double
End Type
Should be changed to:
Private Type InputType
Name As String
Description As String
Properties As IMSDescriptionProperties
uomValue As Double
End Type

compatibility are beyond the scope of this document. Contact your SmartPlant 3D Support
representative if you have questions.

For proper P&ID correlation when you use the software in an integrated environment,
SmartPlant P&ID and SmartPlant 3D must use the same naming convention for piping
components and equipment.
One example is piping reducers. You can open the Excel workbook for piping components in
SmartPlant 3D, and change the name "Concentric Size Change" to "Concentric Reducer". Or,
copy the existing rows and add new entries, as shown below. Save the workbook and bulk load

A P P E N D I X A
This appendix contains information about the select lists that you see under the main Select
Lists node in the tree view. The select lists in this appendix are listed in alphabetical order.
Select lists are called codelists in the delivered bulkload workbooks. A select list number is
the same thing as a codelist number.

A select list (codelist) is a set of predefined acceptable values for a particular attribute. For
example, the Fluid Code list defines all the acceptable fluid names that you can use. You can
only select fluids that are defined in the Fluid Code list. Generally, each entry in a list has a
unique number to identify that value, a short description, and a long description. Depending on
where the software is using the list, you can select the short description to select the list item.
However, when defining parts and piping specification rules, you may be required to identify the
list item that you want by using the list number.
The delivered select lists can be categorized into these types: simple, hierarchical, and system.
Simple - Map numbers with descriptions.
Hierarchical - Group the mappings in multiple levels. If you set a lower-level value in this
type of select list, all values above this level are also set. For example, in the Equipment
Types select list, if you set ProcessEqTypes5 to 370, the higher-level values are also set:
ProcessEqTypes4 to 360, ProcessEqTypes3 to 325, and so forth.
System - Contain values that users must not change.
You can modify most select lists to reflect your own practices, terminology, and language. You
can make revisions to a select list set by editing the AllCodeLists.xls workbook and then bulk
loading. You can also add or edit select lists in the Catalog task.
When you add an entry to a select list, the number for the entry must be between
10,000 - 40,000. Numeric values less than 10,000 and greater than 40,000 are reserved for use
by the software.
Here are some important points to remember about deleting and modifying select lists. You
cannot delete a select list after it is loaded into the Catalog database. However, you can delete
values in certain select lists. The Bulkload utility supports delete and replace for select lists.
You can rename select lists. The name for a select list corresponds to the column name on the
sheet, not necessarily the sheet name in the workbook. The name for each select list must be
unique in the database.
Appendix: Select Lists (Codelists)
Appendix: Select Lists (Codelists)


134 SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide

You can edit the lowest level in a hierarchical select list, but you must not edit any higher levels
in the select list. You can edit simple select lists (without a hierarchy) unless otherwise specified
on the sheet.

For quick links to all the select lists, see the Index sheet in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook.
The namespace for user- defined select lists is UDP. This designation is placed in the
CodeListTableNamespace column on the Custom Interfaces sheet. For more information
about select lists and namespaces, see Select List (Codelist) Namespaces (on page 144).
The limit for select list names is 30 characters. You cannot use blanks or special characters
in these names.
The limit for the long and short descriptions in a select list is 256 characters.
The property name, or column name, can be a maximum of 30 characters.
A sheet name and select list table name cannot exceed 30 characters.
All values in the short description column for a select list must be unique for that list.
Select List (Codelist) Column Descriptions
The select lists have several fields, or columns, in common. Hierarchical select lists can have
more than one pair of short and long description columns.
Short Description - Specifies the short description of the entry. The maximum length of this

Bolting Requirements (Optional) - Select the bolting requirement for the piping commodity.
Valid codes are listed in parentheses. The following options are available:
Undefined (1) - The bolting requirement is undefined.
Bolting required (5) - The piping commodity requires a reportable set of bolts determined
by the bolted joint, but based on a special bolt extension option. If you select this option, you
must define the Bolt Extension Option.
Complete substitution with cap screws for threaded holes (10) - The piping commodity
requires a reportable set of substitution cap screws for full threaded holes determined by the
fitting itself instead of the bolted joint. Cap screws are used for all bolt holes in this situation
and represent a complete substitution of the bolts that would have otherwise been
determined by the bolted joint. Use this option when the through-bolted fitting includes a
complete set of threaded holes to match the drilling template applicable to the mating flange.
Complete substitution with cap screws for tapped holes (15) - The piping commodity
requires a reportable set of substitution cap screws (or substitution tap end stud bolts) for
tapped holes determined by the fitting itself instead of the bolted joint. Cap screws (or tap
end stud bolts) are used for all bolt holes in this situation and represent a complete
substitution of the bolts that would have otherwise been determined by the bolted joint. Use
this option when the through-bolted fitting includes a complete set of tapped holes to match
the drilling template applicable to the mating flange.
Partial substitution with cap screws for threaded holes (20) - The piping commodity
requires a reportable set of substitution cap screws for threaded holes determined by the
fitting itself instead of some of the bolts determined by the bolted joint. This option
represents a partial substitution of the bolts that would have otherwise been determined by
the bolted joint. Use this option to address the situation where the through-bolted fitting
includes a partial set of threaded holes with respect to the drilling template applicable to the
mating flange, and also the situation where the through-bolted fitting includes a complete set
of holes to match the drilling template applicable to the mating flange, but only some of the
holes are threaded.
Appendix: Select Lists (Codelists)


156 SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide

Partial substitution with cap screws for tapped holes (25) - The piping commodity
requires a reportable set of substitution cap screws (or substitution tap end stud bolts) for
tapped holes determined by the fitting itself instead of some of the bolts determined by the
bolted joint. This option represents a partial substitution of the bolts that would have
otherwise been determined by the bolted joint. Use this option to address the situation where
the through-bolted fitting includes a partial set of tapped holes with respect to the drilling
template applicable to the mating flange, and also the situation where the through-bolted
fitting includes a complete set of holes to match the drilling template applicable to the mating
flange, but only some of the holes are tapped.
Bolts supplied with nozzle and not to be reported (30) - The piping commodity is
supplied with the necessary bolts included, such that the applicable bolts should not be
reported.
Reportable bolts not required (35) - A set of bolts is not applicable to any end of this
piping commodity because all ends are non-bolted. This option is the default for any piping
commodity without any bolted ends.
Complete substitution with cap screws for full threaded holes at second size end,
where the cap screws only apply at the second size end (40) - The second size end
requires a reportable set of substitution cap screws for full threaded holes determined by the
fitting itself, for example a reducing flange, instead of the bolted joint. Cap screws are used
for all bolt holes in this situation. This represents a complete bolt substitution that would
have otherwise been determined by the bolted joint. This option addresses the situation
where the smaller end of a reducing flange includes a complete set of threaded holes to
match the drilling template applicable to the companion flange. This option is not available
for nozzles.
Complete substitution with cap screws for tapped holes at second size end, where
the cap screws only apply at the second size end (45) - The second size end requires a
reportable set of substitution cap screws (or substitution tap end stud bolts) for tapped holes
determined by the fitting itself, for example a reducing flange, instead of the bolted joint. Cap
screws are used for all bolt holes in this situation. This represents a complete bolt
substitution that would have otherwise been determined by the bolted joint. This option
addresses the situation where the smaller end of a reducing flange includes a complete set
of tapped holes to match the drilling template applicable to the companion flange. This
option is not available for nozzles.
Partial substitution with cap screws for full threaded holes at second size end, where
the cap screws only apply at the second size end (50) - The second size end requires a
reportable set of substitution cap screws for full threaded holes determined by the fitting
itself, for example a reducing flange, instead of some of the bolts determined by the bolted
joint. This option represents a partial bolt substitution that would have otherwise been
determined by the bolted joint. This option addresses the situation where the smaller end of
a reducing flange includes a partial set of threaded holes with respect to the drilling template
applicable to the companion flange, and also the situation where the smaller end of the
reducing flange includes a complete set of holes to match the drilling template applicable to
the companion flange, but only some of the holes are threaded. This option is not available
for nozzles.
Partial substitution with cap screws for tapped holes at second size end, where the
cap screws only apply at the second size end (55) - The second size end requires a
reportable set of substitution cap screws (or substitution tap end stud bolts) for tapped holes
determined by fitting itself, for example a reducing flange, instead of some of the bolts
determined by the bolted joint. This represents a partial bolt substitution that would have
otherwise been determined by the bolted joint. This will address the situation where the
smaller end of a reducing flange includes a partial set of tapped holes with respect to the
drilling template applicable to the companion flange, and also the situation where the smaller
Appendix: Select Lists (Codelists)


SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide 157

end of a reducing flange includes a complete set of holes to match the drilling template
applicable to the companion flange, but only some of the holes are tapped. This option is not
available for nozzles.
Complete cap screw substitution for full threaded and tapped holes for each bolted
end (60) - Each bolted end requires a reportable set of substitution cap screws for full
threaded holes and also tapped holes determined by the fitting itself instead of the bolted
joint. Cap screws are used for all bolt holes in this situation. In other words, this represents a
complete bolt substitution that would have otherwise been determined by the bolted joint.
This option addresses the situation where the through-bolted fitting includes a complete set
of threaded holes and also tapped holes to match the drilling template applicable to the
companion flange. This can be required, as an example, for a larger size asymmetrical lug
body butterfly valve where tapped holes are required near the valve stem. This option is not
available for nozzles.

Any through-bolted joint, where the Termination Subclass for one of the bolted ends
indicates through-bolted end with bolt holes, but the Bolting Requirement property for the
fitting at that same bolted end indicates a complete substitution of cap screws (or tap end
stud bolts), the software considers it to be a bolted joint, not a through-bolted joint.
Although two or more through-bolted fittings may be involved in forming a through-bolted
connection, the software assumes that only one through-bolted fitting exists for any situation
where either complete substitution or partial substitution with cap screws (or tap end stud
bolts) applies. Furthermore, whenever two or more through-bolted fittings form a
through-bolted connection, the software assumes that the bolts extend through all of the
through-bolted fittings.

Geometric Industry Standard
The Geometric Industry Standard select list (codelist) defines the source, normally either an
industry standard or a manufacturer, used in the preparation of the catalog data applicable to
the piping commodity.
This select list is used in the Piping task. The list belongs to the REFDAT namespace.
You can edit the delivered text of the short or long descriptions as long as you do not
change the meaning. Do not change the numeric values of the delivered select list items. You
cannot add or delete select list items.
Two cases for geometric industry standards exist:
The piping commodity is of a type, size, or function such that its dimensions are governed
by an industry standard. Many fittings and certain sizes of some valves fall into this category.
In this case, the geometric industry standard specifies the governing standard.
The piping commodity is of a type, size, or function such that its dimensions are
manufacturer-specific, and, therefore, are not controlled by any industry standard. Many
smaller-sized fittings and valves fall into this category. This situation has two additional
possibilities.
Precise dimensions are not critical. A company-specific engineering standard may be
created for the piping commodity type that enables a standard catalog definition in order
to permit modeling in those situations where the precise dimensions of the piping
commodity are not critical. This situation is practical when the piping system in question
is field-routed and fabricated. It is not practical in situations where space tolerances are
extremely critical, or when the piping is to be shop-fabricated. In these cases, the
geometric industry standard must reflect the engineering standard.
Precise dimensions are critical. In this case, the geometric industry standard must
eventually reflect the manufacturer of the piping commodity.

The geometric industry standard distinguishes between versions of an industry standard or
manufacturer data. In other words, version 'a' of a specific industry standard is different from
version 'b' of the same industry standard by two distinct values of the geometric industry
standard. When a model is revamped, it is possible that the dimensional data for some
fittings will have changed between the existing, or as-built, data and the most recent
dimensional data. In some situations, it will be necessary for the piping designer to model an
older version of a fitting in the same model, where the newer version of the fitting is
modeled.

Nut Creation Option
The Nut Creation Option select list (codelist) defines the options for nut creation.
By default, the software creates nuts at a bolted joint. The specification writer can disable nut
creation when nuts are not tracked for material management purposes.
Even if this option is disabled, the specification writer can still use the nut height for the bolt
length calculation if the nut selection filter and accompanying nut part data are defined in the
catalog.
In other words, the nut selection filter, and the accompanying nut part data, may be used for bolt
length calculations, even when this option has been disabled. In this situation, the nut height, as
well as the bolt extension, will be included in the bolt length calculation, although the bolt
extension will be expected to not consider the nut height.

Selection Basis
The Selection Basis select list (codelist) defines the values that indicate whether the piping
commodity is available for manual selection by the piping designer or for selection only as a
result of a rule.
This select list is used in the Piping task. The list belongs to the REFDAT namespace.
The following examples show how this select list is used:
For flanges, this select list provides an indication of whether the automated flange selection
logic is applied. The value should be enabled for the default flange connected to fitting short
code and the default flange connected to plain piping short code. Otherwise, the value
should be disabled such that the flange selected by the piping designer overrides the default
flange, as selected by the software. In other words, this select list provides the means for the
piping designer to optionally (at the discretion of the specification writer) be able to select a
flange that is not subject to the automated selection logic for flanges.
For reinforcing pads, this select list provides an indication of whether the reinforcing pad
thickness and the reinforcing pad width are to be specified by the software (system) or by
the user.
For reinforcing welds, this select list provides an indication of whether the reinforcing weld
size is to be specified by the software (system) or by the user.
For pipe bends, this select list provides an indication that the bend radius is determined from
the piping commodity filter, and that the corresponding specification and catalog data are not
required. The commodity code for the pipe bend is expected to be the commodity code of
the plain piping from which the pipe bend is fabricated.
For mitered elbows, this select list provides an indication that the number of miter cuts is
determined from the piping commodity filter, and that the corresponding specification and
catalog data are not required. The commodity code for the pipe bend is expected to be the
commodity code of the plain piping from which the mitered elbow is fabricated.
Reinforcing Pads
Reinforcing pads are treated as piping commodities, where the commodity code is included in
the piping specification. Reinforcing pads appear in the bill of material on the isometric drawing.
Some users include the reinforcing pad thickness and width on the isometric drawing, while
other users do not show this data in the material description on the isometric drawing. In the
latter case, the reinforcing pad thickness and width are based on a standard that is included with
the paper piping specification and, while the data from the standard is accurate, the reinforcing
pad thickness and width are determined from the chart for fabrication, and not from the material
description on the isometric drawing.
If the reinforcing pad is placed by the system, its reinforcing pad width and reinforcing pad
thickness are computed. Any reinforcing pad that is placed as a result of the Branch Intersection
rule should be considered as placed by the system. However, if the reinforcing pad is placed by
the user, the piping designer must specify the pad width and thickness. If branch reinforcement
calculations have been enabled for the piping specification, the reinforcing pad width and the
reinforcing pad thickness, after subtracting the applicable mill tolerance as specified by the
piping designer at placement time, must be verified to represent adequate reinforcement by
means of the branch reinforcement calculations. This verification must consider the minimum
fillet weld size between the header and the pad, and the minimum fillet weld size between the
branch and the pad.
The acceptability of the reinforcing pad should be re-verified in any situation where the
reinforcing pad is re-computed on the basis of any reference data changes or changes to
Appendix: Select Lists (Codelists)


230 SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide

engineering data in the model that affect the selection of the reference data for that reinforcing
pad.
Reinforcing Welds
A reinforcing weld, which can be either a stub-on type or a stub-in type welded to the header
pipe, is not a piping commodity that can be purchased. Typically, a reinforcing weld does not
include a commodity code in the piping specification. Likewise, a reinforcing weld is typically not
included in the bill-of-materials with the isometric drawing. A reinforcing weld should
automatically be placed as a non- material take-off item, if enabled by a project-wide option.
If the reinforcing weld is placed by the system, its reinforcing weld size is computed. Any
reinforcing weld that is placed as a result of the Branch Intersection rule should be considered
as placed by the system. However, if the reinforcing weld is placed by the user, the piping
designer must specify the weld size. If branch reinforcement calculations have been enabled for
the piping specification, the reinforcing weld size, as specified by the piping designer at
placement time, must be verified to represent adequate reinforcement by means of the branch
reinforcement calculations.
You can edit the delivered text of the short or long descriptions as long as you do not

commodity with one or more welded ends.
The face of the flange requires an additional weld. This situation can occur for a slip-on
flange.
The face of the flange can have an optional, additional weld. This situation can occur for a
plate flange, where the additional weld is based on the plate flange thickness.
Each welded end requires a reportable weld. However, the weld at the second piping point
is determined on the basis of the Weld Type Exception option rather than the Weld Type
Rule. This situation occurs for fittings (for example, sleeves), where the weld type always
differs between the two ends of the fitting.
None of the ends requires welding. This value is the default for any piping commodity
without any welded ends.

SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide 293

A P P E N D I X C
You must consider naming limitations when creating and modifying data used by the software.
Naming limitations include restrictions on the length and content of names, such as database
table, view, and column names. These restrictions also affect reference data names.
Both SQL Server and Oracle use keywords and future keywords. Check the SQL Server or
Oracle documentation before you choose names for your metadata objects so that the names
you choose do not clash with SQL or Oracle keywords.
The following table shows the name length limitations in the reference data.
Name Maximum for SQL Server Maximum for Oracle
Codelist name 128 characters 30 characters
Codelist long or short
description
255 characters 255 characters
Property name 23 characters 23 characters
Interface name 23 characters 23 characters
Part class name (sheet
name)
121 characters 23 characters
Piping commodity name 128 characters 128 characters

Oracle allows only 30 characters for the database name of a table, view, or store procedure,
while SQL Server allows 128 characters.
Do not use special characters in names. Special characters include: | . - ! ? + ' % , ; & ~ * <
>

The end-user software delivery includes additional reference data and samples.
Additional Data
The additional workbooks are delivered in the [Product
Directory]\CatalogData\BulkLoad\AdditionalDataFiles folder. These files are not bulk loaded. If
you want to use this data, you will need to bulk load the workbooks into your Catalog database.
The following table summarizes the additional data files.
File name Description
Delta folders Contains delta files for migrating reference data between
versions of the software. The delta files follow a naming
convention to assist you in migration. The name consists of:
1) a number to indicate order of bulkloading, 2) an
abbreviation of the bulkload mode, 3) the version- to-version
upgrade, and 4) the name of the original workbook. Hence,
for the V2007 to V2009 delta upgrade, the file name is

SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide 307

A P P E N D I X E
This section lists frequently-asked questions about reference data.
Catalog Database
Q: How do I create a new Catalog?
Using the Bulkload utility, you can create a starting Catalog database and Catalog Schema
database from a template file named AppRepos.dat for Microsoft SQL Server database or
Apprepos.dmp for Oracle databases.

When using the Bulkload utility to create a new catalog, you must use the AppRepos.dat
template file to create the Catalog Schema. This file is located in [Product
Directory]\DatabaseTemplates on the administrator computer.
Do NOT use the template file named CatalogDB.dat to create a new catalog with the
Bulkload utility.
For more information, see Bulk Load Database with Data (on page 82).
Custom Interfaces
Q: What is an interface?
An interface is a collection of attributes. For more information about interfaces, see Adding and
Modifying Custom Interfaces (on page 61) and Custom Interfaces Sheet (on page 68).
Q: What is the Custom Interfaces sheet for?
The Custom Interfaces sheet provides a method to define user-defined interfaces and add
attributes to classes. It also provides a mechanism to link between class attributes and
parametric symbol arguments.
Q: How can I create a new interface?
You can create a new interface using the Custom Interfaces sheet and then add it to the
Catalog Schema using the Bulkload utility. You can also add an interface by adding an attribute
associated with the interface to an existing class sheet and running the Bulkload utility in the
modify mode.
Q: Do I need to add the letter A in the first column to add the new interface?
No. The Bulkload utility does not recognize the update modes for the Custom Interfaces sheet.
It tries to relate the interface to the classes in the workbook.
Q: Do I need to synchronize the Model with the Catalog after adding new interfaces?
Yes. If the new interfaces were created on existing classes, then you need to synchronize the
Model with the Catalog database.
Q: Do I need to re-generate the Reports databases after adding new interfaces?
Yes. You must re-create the Reports databases in order to query or report on the new attributes.
You must first synchronize the Model with the Catalog.
Appendix: Questions and Answers
about Reference Data
Appendix: Questions and Answers about Reference Data


308 SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide

Q: How can I delete user interfaces?
You can delete an existing interface by typing the letter D in the first column of the interface row
and running the Bulkload utility in the delete mode. This action does not actually delete the
interface from the Catalog Schema; it removes the interface from all of its implemented classes.
Q: What is the limitation of an interface name?
The interface names cannot exceed 23 characters. The Bulkload utility will not include warnings
in the log file if interface names exceed this limit. For more information about limitations on
names, see Appendix: Name Limitations in Reference Data (on page 293).
Q: Can I add additional attributes on existing user interfaces?
Yes. You can add attributes to existing interfaces by typing A in the first column of the rows to
add.
Q: Do I need to synchronize the Model with the Catalog database after adding new attributes on
existing interface?
After adding new attributes to an existing interface, the user must synchronize the Model with
the Catalog database. Also, you must re-create the Reports databases in order to query and
report on the new attributes.
Q: Can I modify any of the data in existing attributes?
No, you cannot modify existing attributes after bulk loading them.
Q: What is the limitation of an attribute name?
Attribute names cannot exceed 23 characters. The Bulkload utility will not include warnings in
the log file if attribute names exceed this limit. For more information about limitations on names,
see Appendix: Name Limitations in Reference Data (on page 293).
Q: Must the attribute name be unique for all interfaces?
No. An attribute with the same name can exist on more than one interface.
On a part class sheet, you can scope the user attributes based on their interfaces and symbol
parameters. The scoping syntax is: Interface::UserAttribute<Symbol Parameter>.
Q: Can I create a new interface with the same name as a deleted interface?
No. If you "delete" an interface and want to re-bulk load it with new properties, you must change
the interface name. However, you can restore back the deleted interface by re- bulk loading it
with the same attribute.
Q: Why does the system display all the attributes for that interface if the object uses only one of
them?
When an object uses a single attribute from an interface, the object also inherits all the attributes
for that interface regardless of whether the object uses the other attributes.
Q: I want to add user attributes to a class, such as pipe runs. How do I do this?
Open the Systems.xls file, which is delivered in the [Product
Directory]\CatalogData\DataFiles\BulkLoad\SampleDataFiles folder. This file provides a sample
that you can follow. Create a custom interface, and then map the class name to your new
interface. For more information, see Add User Attributes to a Class (on page 67).
Appendix: Questions and Answers about Reference Data


SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide 309

Codelists
Q: Where are the user-defined codelist tables stored?
User-defined codelist tables are added to the Catalog Schema under the User Defined Package
namespace. For more information about namespaces, see Select List (Codelist) Namespaces
(on page 144).
Q: Do I need to add the letter A to add the codelist table?
Yes. The system creates the codelist table using the first column name. You must use the letter
A to add the codelist values into the codelist table. The name for a codelist is not necessarily the
sheet name in the workbook.
Q: Can the user create a hierarchical codelist table (a two- level codelist, for example)?
Yes. For example, the Commodity Option codelist in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook is a
hierarchical codelist. You can find this workbook in the [Product
Directory]\CatalogData\BulkLoad\DataFiles folder.
You can also create hierarchical codelists using the Catalog task functionality.
Q: Can I add new codelist values to existing codelist tables?
Yes, you can add simple codelists (without a hierarchy) unless otherwise specified on the sheet.
For existing hierarchical codelists, you can add the lowest level in a hierarchical codelist, but you
must not add any higher levels in the codelist.
Q: Can I start the Head Definition at row 1 on the Excel sheet?
Yes. The Head Definition can start at row 1.
Q: Why can I use the same codelist values in some of the codelists?
The codelist values are only required to be unique in each hierarchy level.
Q: What does the Sort Order column do?
The values in this column specify the order in which to display items in the software.
Q: Can I delete a codelist table?
You cannot delete a codelist table. However, you can delete entries in the selected codelist
table by running the Bulkload utility in the delete mode. The software marks the selected codelist
entries as deleted.
Q: What happens if codelist values are deleted?
The software marks them as deleted items.
Q: Can I modify the short description of a codelist?
Yes. You can modify the short description of a codelist.
Q: Does the name of the codelist have to be unique?
The name for each codelist must be unique in the Catalog Schema.
Q: What is the namespace for user-defined codelists?
The codelist namespace for user-defined codelists is UDP (User Defined Package).
Q: What is the limitation on a codelist name?
The limit for codelist names depends on the server type, SQL Server or Oracle. For more
information about limitations on names, see Appendix: Name Limitations in Reference Data (on
page 293).
Q: What is the limitation on a codelist description?
The limit for the long and short descriptions in a codelist is 255 characters. For more information
about limitations on names, see Appendix: Name Limitations in Reference Data (on page 293).
Appendix: Questions and Answers about Reference Data


310 SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide

Part Classes
Q: Does the Custom Interfaces sheet need to be in the same workbook as the part classes?
Yes. The Custom Interfaces sheet must reside in the same workbook as the part classes that
you are bulk loading.
Q: Do I need to synchronize the Model with the Catalog if I edit a part class?
If you modify an existing class definition, you must run the Synchronize Model with Catalog
command on any model that has occurrences of the class that you modified.
Q: How can I delete classes?
You can delete an existing class by typing the letter D in the first column of the Class Type
Definition row and running the Bulkload utility in the delete mode. This action does not actually
delete the class from the Catalog Schema. The software marks the class as a deleted item. You
cannot reuse the part class name in the same database set.
After deleting the class from the catalog, you also must synchronize the model with the catalog
in order to remove all occurrences of the class from the model.
Q: Must the UserClassName field be unique for a class?
Yes. The UserClassName for a class must be unique. If it is not unique, the software will have a
problem displaying the name in the graphical user interface.
Q: Does the order of the attributes in the class sheet matter?
Order of the attributes (columns) is not important. The software uses the names of the attributes
regardless of the order on the sheet.
Q: What is the length limitation on a piping commodity code?
The limit for piping commodity codes is 128 characters. For more information about limitations
on names, see Appendix: Name Limitations in Reference Data (on page 293).
Structure
Q: Can I add additional occurrence attributes on a Cross Section class?
The Cross Section classes do not support occurrence attributes.
Q: Can I edit the Class Type Definition on a cross section class?
You can only edit the SymbolIcon file name. You cannot modify the Reference Standard on any
cross section class.
For more information about structural reference data, see the Structure Reference Data Guide
available from the Help > Printable Guides command in the software.
GUIDs (Globally Unique Identifiers)
Q: What is the purpose of the GUIDs sheet?
GUIDs are registry identifiers for the part classes and interfaces. The primary purpose of the
GUIDs is to create a connection between part classes in the Catalog database and the
occurrences created in the model from those part classes. Do not modify the contents of the
GUIDs sheets in the delivered sample workbooks or in workbooks that you have used to create
a Catalog database set for a project. For more information about GUIDs, see GUIDs Sheet (on
page 70).

A P P E N D I X F
Metadata consistency is important when copying objects between models with different
catalogs. This topic discusses how to ensure that the metadata in both the source Catalog
Schema and the target Catalog Schema is consistent.
The two catalogs must be consistent in their schema and in their data. However, exceptions
exist. For example, only the object name for a part must be the same. The rest of the data for a
part does not need to be consistent.
While reading the following information about data consistency, it is helpful to know the
difference between user classes and system classes in reference data.
System classes are modeled during design time using the Rose model. User classes are those
classes that the user creates by bulkloading part sheets. Furthermore, there are two types of
user classes that are created during the processing of the part class sheets during bulkloading.
The first type is a definition class, and the other type is an occurrence class. The definition class
name appears in the Catalog task and in the Catalog browser. You can specify the definition
class name in the UserClassName field on the part class sheets. The occurrence class name
appears in the business object hierarchy on the Object Type tab on the Filter Properties dialog
boxes. You can specify the occurrence class name in the OccClassName field on the part class
sheets.
In the delivered reference data, the definition class name and occurrence class name for a part
class are often the same name. For example, on the 3WayBallValve part class sheet in Piping
Catalog.xls, the definition class name and occurrence class name are both specified as 3-Way
Ball Valve.
Catalog Schema Consistency
The user classes must have the same CLSID. A CLSID is an identifier that is assigned when
you specify the schema.
Any of the system classes (non-virtual) that implement virtual interfaces (during the bulkload
process) in the source catalog should have the same set of implemented interfaces in the
target schema.
The user interfaces that are intended to exist in both catalogs must have the same IID. An
IID is an identifier that is assigned when you specify the schema.
The user properties that are intended to exist in both catalogs must have the same DispID.
A DispID is an identifier that is assigned when you specify the schema.
Each user attribute definition in the original schema should match with the definition in the
target catalogs schema. User attribute definition includes its Type, UnitsType, and
PrimaryUnits attributes. For metadata consistency, we are concerned about the following
attributes: Name, Type, UnitsType, PrimaryUnits, and Codelist.
User attributes that are codelisted should have the codelist table exist in the target catalog
schema. In addition, the target schema should have all the values of the codelist table in the
source schema. The valueIDs should match in both schemas. The short and long strings
can be different.
Properties that are mapped to symbol parameters must exist in both catalogs.
Properties associated to an interface that exists only in the source model will not be
exposed in the target model, even though the value of the property from the source object
will probably be copied.
Appendix: Metadata Consistency
Appendix: Metadata Consistency


312 SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide

Properties associated to an interface that does not exist in the source model will be exposed
in the target model, but the values will be NULL.
Catalog Consistency
Catalog objects that are related to model objects being copied must exist in the target
catalog and must have used the same internal name as in the source catalog.
Inconsistencies between catalogs can arise in the following areas:
User class definitions
Custom class definitions
User interface definitions
User attribute definitions
Symbols
When the source and target catalog schemas are different, the case may be that a definition
exists in the source but not in the target. Or, a definition exists in the target but not in the source.
Or, the definitions exist in both the source and target, but the definitions are different. The
procedures to remedy these situations depend on the exact details of the situation.
If you copy a part with different values in the target catalog and the source catalog, the target or
source set of values is used for the part when it is placed in the target model.
For assistance with metadata, contact Intergraph Process, Power & Marine Support.

General Setup
The setup instructions are global for the SmartPlant Reference data. They apply to all of the
specs, projects, and product groups in SmartPlant Reference Data.
General configuration settings are defined in the SP3D 10.01 General Configs dialog box. To
display this dialog box, click SP3D Interface > SP3D 10 Config.
For the delivered standard database, the DIN specs require a Transfer Type that will
need this item be set to Y, but the PIP specs (ANSI) will have a Transfer Type that will allow
this be set to N. You can create any Transfer Type that meets your needs.

314 SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide

Exporting from the SmartPlant Reference Data
Standard Database
The Standard Database holds the information that is compatible with the SmartPlant 3D
specifications. That includes codelists, plant level reference data and rules, specification-level
rules, part data in the catalog, generic piping component data, and piping specification data. The
general idea is that all that information is created, managed and modified in SmartPlant
Reference Data, and then exported to SmartPlant 3D catalogs when needed.
Output from SmartPlant Reference Data is Excel sheets which can be manually bulkloaded into
SmartPlant 3D. These Excel sheets should not be modified prior to downloading, because then
you lose control of further modifications. Output Excel file names are not by default what you
see in this document, but you can rename them to meet your requirements.
Export is done with export job definitions in SmartPlant Reference Data. This is done using the
SP3D 20.01 Export Jobs dialog box available from SP 3D Interface > SP 3D 20 Transfer.
The export job definition is different for ANSI specs and for EN/DIN specs. This
appendix does not deal with ANSI specs.
General Notes
It is better to start with a new destination. The data that you input there is for documentation
purposes only, but the destination itself holds a hook to inventory. If you export again to the
same destination, you might not get a full export but an incremental export related to what
you exported before (that information is stored in the inventory). If you start with a new
destination, you can be sure that inventory is empty.
You create a destination in the form: SP 3D Interface SP 3D 10 Config SP 3D 10.05
Destinations
You can empty a destination in the form: SP 3D Interface SP 3D 20 Transfer SP 3D
20.02 Destination Data
To make sure that your export is not incremental, check the first column in your Excel
sheets. There should be only A letters and not A,M and D letters. The problem arises if
you try to append a worksheet with A,M,D letters, the end result is unpredictable and very
likely bad.
Use Validate Job and Start Job to validate and run these jobs. The Progress tab tells you how
the run went.
If you use Write XLS as the job goal, you need to click Cancel after each run when it is finished.
If you do not, your next run, even for a different export, will end in an error because of this
unfinished export job.

EN/DIN Specifications
The transfer types that need to be extracted from Standard Database are as follows:
SDB_CODE_LISTS - All codelists.
SDB_GENERIC_DATA - Generic dimensional data for EN/DIN specifications.
SDB_DIN_ALL_WO_CDL - EN/DIN specs.
The following dialog boxes specify the export job definitions for each of these exports. Matters of
interest in these dialog boxes include:
Destination - Specifies where you are going to use the export. If changes are made to data in
the standard database and exported to a destination, worksheets in Add/Modify/Delete can be
created based on previously exported data for the specific destination.
Bulkload mode - The default value is ADD_MODIFY_DELETE mode.
Item Mapping - Select SDB_ITEM_MAPPING or DIN_MAPPING depending on the export.
SDB_CODE_LISTS will use SDB_ITEM_MAPPING, SDB_DIN_ALL_WO_CDL and
SDB_GENERIC_DATA will use SDB_DIN_MAPPING
Template - The template is automatically populated when Item Mapping is chosen.
Transfer type - Predefined sets of worksheets to be exported.
Job goal - Select write XLS for a standalone job. The other job goals are designed for the
upcoming .NET interface.
Config - Select SDB config for everything.
Sheet config - This is not an input field, but is typed in automatically based on other selections
Use Validate Job and Start Job to validate and run these jobs. The Progress Tab tells you
how the run went.

Bulkloading into SmartPlant 3D
In order to use specs in SmartPlant 3D, you need to bulkload them into a catalog. Start with an
empty catalog that you can create with SmartPlant 3D tools. You can use either Project
Manager or the Database Wizard for that. For the catalog template in the case of an empty
catalog, you need to use the AppRepos template. For further information how catalogs are
created in SmartPlant 3D, please refer to the SmartPlant 3D documentation.
For successful creation of a catalog, you need to follow the correct order, correct bulkloading
methods, and you need to bulkload all the necessary files needed for a certain discipline.
This document deals only with the data needed for piping discipline.
The files that you need to bulkload are slightly different for ANSI and EN/DIN specs.
This appendix does not deal with ANSI specs.
Appendix: Importing SmartPlant Reference Data Specs into SmartPlant 3D


SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide 321

EN/DIN Bulkloading
You need to bulkload files in the following manner. Bulkloading is presented below in two steps
for clarity. You can combine these two step in one bulkload task because the software
automatically selects the correct order.
First:
sdb_code_lists
Codelists are bulkloaded using a different section of the Bulkload dialog box. The order
of those files is not significant if there is no overlapping data. You will get warnings of
overlapping data if the same data is present in multiple files.

Second:
generic naming rules.xls
insulation data.xls
sdb_generic_data
SDB_DIN_ALL_WO_CDL
Appendix: Importing SmartPlant Reference Data Specs into SmartPlant 3D


322 SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide

For SmartPlant 3D to work, you need to have generic naming rules in the catalog. For the piping
discipline, you also need insulation data for modeling. Those do not come from SDB, but they
are delivered with SmartPlant 3D catalog data. Intergraph Corporation also recommends
bulkloading Reports.xls.
For EN/DIN specific data, you load generic data and the actual spec data.

These are the requirements for getting the piping discipline to work. For other matters, such as
running isometrics and reports, creating drawings and modeling equipment, you need other data
in your catalog. For a complete list of the data required for each task, see Using Excel
Workbooks to Configure Reference Data (on page 49).
