So, if you want to select a different starting point, for example another nozzle, just press space-key and new starting point will be displayed into the From window. In a similar way, you can set the route end point by pressing space-key in the To window. The pipe line will automatically recalculate the route path.
A cross walk is active around the pipe line, in order to easily see and cross the locations of each nozzle. You can select any nozzle by pressing the 'x' key at any starting point or by a double click at the route endpoint, using the mouse. Each selected nozzle will be moved to its current position with respect to its current axis. Also, you have the possibility to change the pipe orientation, drag the nozzle along the route path and adjust pipe segments without changing the pipe orientation.
Finally, it has to be mentioned that the From and To windows are displayed horizontally, that is the nozzle axis are taken as the flow routing direction with respect to the pipe running direction as it is shown in the example. You have the possibility to change this by simply pressing the '+' or '-' buttons, located on the corner of the window.
This example represents the simplest pipe layout. It should be mentioned that the pipe specification is defined and can be extended through personalised definition. Derived from this example, it is possible to create multi-component piping in which the same set of nozzles are inserted into a multi-pipe layout.
It is important to mention that Smart Route functionality is able to automatically recalculate the pipe dimensions and the dimensions of any connected nozzles during route change. Also, it is important to mention that the pipe diameter is a function of the pipe height and pipe wall thickness. It is important to mention that pipe wall thickness is a function of pipe diameter in a ring and a radius is a function of pipe diameter in sleeves. d2c66b5586
