CHAPTER 4

4 Surface Treatment

The Surface Treatment utility enables specific paint types and coatings to be applied to individual model
items such as piping, HVAC, structural elements, etc.

4.1 Definition of Surface Treatments

Surface treatments consist of surface preparation, primer, paint description, manufacturer and a coating
thickness. Surface treatments are defined in Paragon and stored in a Catalogue database.

The definition of Surface Treatments is outside the scope of this training guide. Refer to TM-1867
AVEVA Everything3D Project Model General Administration for information on how to define and
modify surface treatments in Paragon.

The database MASTER/PIPECATA, in the AVEVA data project ACP, contains a number of pre-defined
surface treatments, for example:

Surface treatments are referenced by model elements via the attributes Inprtref and Ouprtref representing
the inside surface treatment and the outside surface treatment respectively. Only elements with these
attributes may have a surface treatment assigned to them.

4.2 Assigning a Surface Treatment

Selecting TOOLS > Assign > Surface Treatment displays the Surface Treatment Assignment form.

4.2.1 Selecting Elements

The Scope definition area of the form assists in selecting database elements to assign surface treatment to
and displays them in the Selected elements area of the form in a grid.

The Scope definition options list may be used to filter by a particular element type. For example, if PIPE is
selected and a ZONE containing only EQUI elements is selected, the Selected elements grid does not
display any results. Similarly, if EQUI is selected and a ZONE containing only EQUI elements is selected,
only the EQUI elements are displayed in the grid. However, if ALL is selected the ZONE containing only
EQUI elements will display the NOZZ elements as well.

The radio buttons in the Scope definition area have the following functionality:

CE mem - includes members of the current element, i.e. elements owned by the CE.

ID enables item(s) to be graphically picked from the 3D view.

CE - includes the current element only.

Collection this radio button, and its associated options list, is only enabled if one or more collections
are defined. The options list adjacent contains all the currently defined collections. This option allows
the selection of items from predefined collections.

Clicking either the Select or Add Element buttons populates the Selected elements grid with the elements
based on the chosen method and criteria.

The Select button clears the grid of any existing elements and adds the selected items.

The Add Element button appends the selected items to the items already displayed in the grid.

Only items which have Inprtref and Ouprtref attributes are added to the grid. Items without these
attributes are ignored.

Once the Selected elements grid is populated, elements from the grid must be selected to apply the
surface treatment to. Selections can be made from the grid using standard Windows selection methods.

4.2.2 Selecting the Surface Treatment

Once the elements required have been selected, the surface treatment to be applied and where it is to be
applied, can be selected from the bottom part of the Surface Treatment Assignment form.

The database MASTER/PIPECATA contains four pre-defined Table groups (Selection Tables) which may
be selected using the Table group options list.

These options are:

IPSP Inside Paint Specification, rule based.

OPSP Outside Paint Specification, rule based.

FACE Face Code of Zone.

GENE General, non-rule based.

Each Table Group option has a number of specification based table items which are selected from the
Table item options list:

When a Table item has been selected the Specification, if applicable, Symbol code and Punch code
textboxes are automatically filled with the relevant information.

4.2.3 Applying the Surface Treatment

Having selected the elements to apply the surface treatment to and the required surface treatment, clicking
either the Inside, Outside or Both buttons will update the Selected elements grid with the appropriate
settings.

Clicking the Apply button on the form displays a warning message.

Clicking the OK button on the message assigns the


surface treatment to the specified items and removes
them from the Selected elements grid.

By Viewing the attributes of the processed elements it


can be seen that the Inprtref attribute has been
displayed accordingly.

4.2.3.1 Selected Elements Grid Pop-up Menu


Having selected items from the Selected elements grid, right clicking
in the grid item displays a pop-up menu which has the following
options:

Add to 3D view this option adds the selected elements to the


3D view.

Change Inside Codes from Spec this option populates the


inside codes, i.e. INPRTR, STINRF, STINCD and PUINCD
columns in the grid, for the selected items using the current Table
item data.

Change Outside Codes from Spec - this option populates the


outside codes, i.e. OUPRTR, STOURF, STOUCD and PUOUCD
columns in the grid, for the selected items using the current Table
item data.

Change IN/OUT Codes from Spec - this option populates both the inside codes and outside codes for
the selected items using the current Table item data.

Change Inside Codes from Face this option populates the inside codes, i.e. INPRTR, STINRF,
STINCD and PUINCD columns in the grid, for the selected items using the current Table item data.

Change Outside Codes from Face - this option populates the outside codes, i.e. OUPRTR, STOURF,
STOUCD and PUOUCD columns in the grid, for the selected items using the current Table item data.

Change IN/OUT Codes from Face - this option populates both the inside codes and outside codes for
the selected items using the current Table item data.

The Apply button on the Surface Treatment Assignment form will still need to be clicked to update
the attributes on the selected items after the grid is updated.

Change codes from Table List this option opens the Surface Treatment Section form which is
described in detail in the next section.

Remove Selected Element(s) this option removes the selected element(s) from the grid.

Remove All Elements this option clears the grid.

4.2.3.2 The Surface Treatment Selection Form


Having selected items from the Selected
elements grid, clicking the SRF List button at
the bottom of the Surface Treatment
Assignment form displays the Surface
Treatment Selection form.

The form contains Table Group and Table Item


options list, whose functionality is the same as
previously described for the corresponding
gadgets on the Surface Treatment
Assignment form. However, selecting a Table
Group and Table Item displays details and
coatings of the surface treatment.

Clicking the Inside, Outside or Both buttons


updates the selected items in the grid with the
details from the selected surface treatment.

The Clear button clears the details on the form.

The Apply button on the Surface Treatment Assignment form will still need to be clicked to update
the attributes on the selected items after the grid is updated.

4.3 Surface Treatment Calculation and Report

Once the surface treatments have been assigned to the required model elements, the inside and outside
surface area for each component may be calculated and reported on.

With the required element as the CE, selecting TOOLS > Report > Surface Treatment displays the
Surface Treatment Report form.

The CE when the form is loaded is set automatically. Navigating to another element within the Model
Explorer and clicking the CE button will set that as the current CE for the form.

Clicking the Calculate button calculates the inside and outside surface area for each component owned by
the CE and displays the results in the Selected elements grid. Units for the calculated area derive from the
current session units for distance.

The Units for Area displayed derive from the current session units for Distance, as defined in the units
setting form.

Having selected items from the Selected elements grid, right clicking in the grid displays a pop-up menu
which has the following options:

Add to 3D view this option adds the selected elements to the 3D


view.
