CHAPTER 9

9 Standard Model Library

9.1 Overview

The Standard Model Library provides a library of pre-defined hierarchies containing modelled, single or
multi-discipline elements that can be used in the model as many times as required throughout the project.

Standard Model Library captures model elements and stores them within an Application Data World
(APPLDW) referred to as a Library.

This in turn owns Application Data Area (APPDAR) elements referred to as a Library Area.

The Purpose attribute (PURP) of each of these elements is set to STDM to distinguish them from other
Application Data Worlds used with other utilities and allows them to store Application Data elements
(APPLDA) referred to as Library Items.

Underneath the Library Item sits a Zone which holds the captured model elements.

Library Models may contain elements from several design disciplines. In some cases the designer using the
Model Library may not have right access to all of the model elements. For example an equipment designer
may not be able to modify structural sections. In this instance the equipment designer can utilise the
standard library to create and initially position a library item within the model, but would then be unable to
modify the position of the structural segments thereafter.

It should be noted that model items created from a Library Item are model elements and do not contain any
reference to the Library Item from which they were created. If the Library Item is modified this change would
not be reflected in the model elements created.

Library Items are usually added by an Administrator once the status of the Library Item is verified for
release. As such the creation of the Library, Library Area and Library Items is not covered in this
training guide.

For information on the creation of Standard Model Library items please refer to the TM-1867 AVEVA
Everything3D Project Model General Administration training guide.

9.2 Creating from the Standard Model Library

Items stored in the Standard Model Library can be placed an unlimited number of times within the model.
To create an instance of the Library Item navigate to the GENERAL tab then click the Standard Model
button from the Create Group. The Create Standard Model Library Item form is displayed.

To create a Library Item the user must set a storage zone,


under which the design elements will be created.

If a zone was the CE when the form was launched it will


appear in the text box at the top of the form. If a zone was not
selected the text box turns red and asks the user to navigate
to a zone.

A zone can be selected, or re-selected by selecting a zone


from the Model Explorer and pressing the Zone button. The
selected zone will then appear in the adjacent textbox.

The Selection frame allows the selection of the library and


library areas to be used. These are chosen from the two drop
down lists which display the available selections.

The Toggle Name/Description checkbox toggles between


displaying the name and the description of Library Items.

Once a Library Area is selected the Library Items stored within


that area become available within the Standard Model
Library Items list. Selecting an item from this list makes it the
current Model Item and it is displayed in the forms 3D view.

The New Instance frame shows several attributes which can


be set when the new item is placed into the design.

Name Allows the user to select a name for the Library Item.
The user can select the Use Autoname checkbox to utilise
autonaming rules, if suitable rules are available.

Orientate Y is, and Z is - allow the orientation, with respect to


the world co-ordinates to be defined, prior to creation. The
default values are the same as for the Orientation commands
within AVEVA E3D, Y is N and Z is U.

Although the default values are wrt the world, another element,
e.g. the owning site could be used by entering WRT then the
element name into the text box.

An occurance of the Library Item can be created and positioned within the design by selecting the Create
and Position link label. The prompt bar on the form and the main 3D view changes to Pick New Item
position and the Positioning Control Form is activated.

Any item can be selected from the main 3D view to act as the origin of the new item. The Model Item data is
then created and positioned at the selected position. Once positioned the item creates the required model
elements, which behave as any model element of the same type does.

9.3 Using Standard Model Library Elements - A Worked Example

Add /ZONE-ELECTRICAL-AREA03, /ZONE-STRUCTURAL-AREA03 and /ZONE-CIVIL-AREA03 to the


main 3D View.

Navigate to the GENERAL tab then click the Standard Model button from the Create Group. The Create
Standard Model Library Item form is displayed.

In the Model Explorer select /ZONE_ELECTRICAL_AREA03. Click the Zone button in the Storage Zone
area of the Create Standard Model Library Item form. By default, the Library and Library Area option lists
should be populated with sample data.

From the Standard Model Library Items Library list select


the Standard Model Library Light. The 3D view on the
form should then update with the model item.

The Standard Library Item has its origin positioned in the


centre between the two hangers allowing simple
positioning. Lights are going to be added to the lower
beams between columns D10 and D11, G10 and G11, J10
and J11.

The first Light will be positioned between D10 and D11. In


the Name text box enter LT-103-B2. In the Orientate Y
text box enter N WRT /*.

Now click the Create and Position link label. The Position Control Form is activated allowing the full
range of graphical picking options. In this case the light will be positioned at the mid point of the beam. As
such select Pline and Midpoint from the Positioning Control form.

Now select the top of the BOS pline on the Bottom face of the
beam between columns D10 and D11.

The new light will then be positioned in the centre of the beam.
Repeat this process on the beams between columns G10 and
G11, J10 and J11 naming them LT-103-B3 and LT-107-B4
respectively.

Note that all of the lights are created in the existing zone
because the Library Item contains a single model element. Next
a Library Item containing multiple model elements from multiple
disciplines will be used.

From the Standard Model Library Items list select the Library
Item PUMP KIOSK FOR STANDARD MODEL LIBRARY.

Selecting this from the list shows the Library Item in the 3D
View. In this case the Library Item is a captured zone
containing model elements from the Structural, Equipment and
Piping disciplines.

Add the Site SITE_CIVIL_AREA02 to the 3D view. In the


Name text box enter PUMP_KIOSK_01. The kiosk will be
positioned with the doors facing East. To allow this the
Orientate Y is set to W WRT /*.

Select the Create and Position link label to create and


position the Library Item.

On the Positioning Control form select the Explicit Position


option and set the co-ordinates as:

E -319200

N 332500

U 100000.

The new pump kiosk is created in the model. Due to the multiple discipline elements a new zone has been
created.

It is possible to include model items with multiple model items using a User Defined Element Type (UDET),
which has a base type of Zone, but which can be stored under a Zone.

The creation of User Defined Element Types is not covered in this training guide and is usually
performed by a system administrator. For information on the creation and management of User Defined
Element Types please see the TM1860 AVEVA Administration Fundamentals training guide.

In this case an UDET named :SKID will be used. The :SKID is a zone element, able to be stored beneath
another zone.

A colon in front of an element type indicates it is an User Defined Element Type.

Add /ZONE-PIPING-AREA03 to the 3D View. Select the Skid


Mounted Pump Arrangement from the Standard Model
Library Items list.

The SKID origin is located in the Centre of Upper Nozzle. This


allows simple positioning of the SKID to the Pipework. Two
skids will be added connecting to pipes 0350-B-23, 03100-B-
24, 0350-B-24, and 03100-B-25.

In the Model Explorer select


/ZONE_EQUIPMENT_AREA03 and click the Zone
button to set the Item storage area.

Enter the name 03SKID1 and ensure the Orientate Y


is set to S WRT /*.

Select the Create and Position Link Label to


activate the Positioning Control form. Select the
Element and Snap options.

Now select the Head Flange on Pipe 0350-B-23.

Repeat the process for Pipe 0350-B-24, naming it


03SKID2.

The skids should now be positioned as follows.

In the Hierarchy note that the element :SKID is positioned underneath the Equipment Zone and that the
element name is :SKID.
