Often it is necessary to review the piping model in the context of certain data. For example, by diameter, wall thickness, temperature, or pressure. These operations are illustrated below.

When the Diameters button is clicked, the display is updated to show each diameter in a different color. A color key is included on the left side of the plot. This is shown in the figure to the right. This option can be used to quickly see diameter variations throughout the system. This is a good way to verify that diameter changes have been made where appropriate.

When the Thicknesses button is clicked, the display is updated to show each pipe wall thickness in a different color. A color key is included on the left side of the plot. This is shown in the figure to the right. This option can be used to quickly see wall thickness variations throughout the system. This is a good way to verify that wall thickness changes have been made where appropriate.


When the Temperature button is clicked, the display is updated to show each pipe temperature in a different color. A color key is included on the left side of the plot. This is shown in the figure to the right. This option can be used to quickly see temperature variations throughout the system. This is a good way to verify that temperature changes have been made where appropriate. When more than one (operating) temperature has been specified, a drop list is presented so that the (single) desired temperature can be used in coloring the model.


When the Pressure button is clicked, the display is updated to show each pipe pressure in a different color. A color key is included on the left side of the plot. This is shown in the figure to the right. This option can be used to quickly see pressure variations throughout the system. This is a good way to verify that pressure changes have been made where appropriate. When more than one (operating) pressure has been specified, a drop list is presented so that the (single) desired pressure can be used in coloring the model.


When the Material button is clicked, the display is updated to show each pipe material in a different color. A color key is included on the left side of the plot. This is shown in the figure to the right. This option can be used to quickly see pressure variations throughout the system. This is a good way to verify that material changes have been made where appropriate.
