All of the following commands will move components along this line. THRO PT Position the origin to intersect a line perpendicular to the implied direction which passes through the branch tail. For most types of component, this command gives a tube spool length equal to the clearance value.

The direction is taken as the leave direction of the previous component. It does not change the angle. When only one axis is specified, the other tries to get to it's default, so in this case, Z will default to UP.
In backwards mode, the list is considered to be reversed so these commands have the effect of working pds the opposite end of the list. This is the best way of ensuring that you get to the element you want.
The following are examples: Usually for sloping lines. THRO PT Position the origin to intersect a line perpendicular to the implied direction which passes through the branch tail.
For most types commandx component, this command gives a tube spool length equal to the clearance value.

Pseudo attributes are not attributes as such, but they have the ability to extract data when queried. It does not change the position.
DIR S This is a special command which is allowed to change the angle of a component. In this case, the tee is orientated and the angle adjusted to allow p3 to point in the direction specified. ORI P1 IS N Rather than specifying an axis, this command specifies that a particular ppoint is to be orientated in the direction specified.
Normally, the Q POS command gives the position relative to the element's owner. For some components such as level operated valves the clearance is likely to take the lever length as the obstruction length of the valve, so in this case the clearance might be more unpredictable.

All posts 1 day 7 days 2 weeks 1 month 3 months 6 months 1 year Sort by: The following commands are pddms to piping because they use the implied direction of the previous component to determine the position. To position relative to some commxnds element, wrt can be added as follows: Names can change but reference numbers are fixed so you always get the same element. Orientation Commands Piping ORI This command orientates the arrive of the element in the opposite direction to the leave of the previous element.
This implied direction is some times referred to as the constrained centreline and is simply a line drawn in the direction of the previous component.
Author Post time Subject Direction: All of the following commands will move components along this line. It first performs an ori, then adjusts the angle to ensure that the leave direction is in the direction specified.
All the above commands can be used with piping components for exact positioning. DIST Position the current element coommands away from the previous component.
