AVEVA Laser modeller issues

Post by Eliska » Fri Oct 24, 2014 4:15 pm

Hi guys,

is here anybody who work with AVEVA Laser modeller? I have very specific issue I struggle with:

I have several pipes running into one (the same diameter) under angle approx. 45 degrees. The program keeps telling me, that it cannot patch TEE under this angle. I tried to patch unclassified, but unfortunately it does not work, too.

If anybody would have answer, please, help me! :|

Hi Eliska,

Do you definitely have a standard item that fits the circumstances (i.e. with the correct diameters)?

Can you post a screenshot of the best BubbleView that shows the item you are trying to model?

Hi Jenni,

I am using standard A3B. Please, see screenshots...

I was trying other standards as well, however program keeps telling me, that it is impossible to patch the tee in that angle.

Thank you!

Hi Eliska,

I don't think that's a standard T-section. If you look in the BubbleView you would see welds where the secondary axis of the TEE met the pipe branching off and also welds on either side of the TEE on the primary axis. I think this is just two pipes that have been "run in" to each other and welded where the join is.

Therefore I would suggest you extend the pipe that represents the secondary axis visually into the middle of the pipe that represents the primary axis and make the actual connection inside PDMS once the model has been exported. I've attached some screenshots to show this. One showing how the pipe would look if you did this and one showing the main pipe cut back so you can see how the other pipe (in red) interacts with the main one.

I hope that helps - let me know if you have any questions.

Regards,
Jenni
