13 Chapter 11 Block References and Attributes PROJECT EXERCISE P11B This project exercise provides point-by-point instructions for creating one dynamic block to represent several symbols for flanges with differing dimensions, as shown in the single-line depiction on the right of Figure P11B 1. In this exercise, you will apply the skills learned regarding creating dynamic blocks, acquired in Chapter 11. FIGURE P11B 1 Pictorial and Single-line drawings of piping arrangement Figure P11B 2 shows the differing dimensions of raised-face weld-neck flanges in two flange ratings (150 and 300 ) for two different pipe sizes (3 00). The four block references can be obtained from a single dynamic block that has been created with varying dimensional parameters driven by a Lookup Table with the different pipesize/flange-rating combinations. 00 and 4 FIGURE P11B 2 One block representing four combinations of dimensions In this project, you will learn to do the following: Start the Block Editor and draw the objects for making a dynamic block. Add parameter sets to the dynamic block. Add a Lookup Table for controlling the dimensions of the block reference after it is inserted.

14 11-14 Step 1: Step 2: Step 3: Start the AutoCAD program. To create a new drawing, invoke the NEW command from the Quick Access toolbar. AutoCAD displays the Select Template dialog box. Select acad.dwt as the template file and choose Open. AutoCAD creates a new drawing. Invoke the LIMITS command, and set the limits to the lower left and upper right coordinates as shown in the Settings/Value table. Settings Value UNITS Architectural LIMITS Lower left corner: -6,-6 Upper right corner: 12,6 LAYERS NAME COLOR LINETYPE Flange Red Continuous Pipeline Blue Continuous Step 4: Step 5: Step 6: Invoke the LAYER command from the Layers panel. AutoCAD displays the Layer Properties Manager dialog box. Create two layers, rename them as shown in the table, and assign the appropriate color and linetype. Set Flange as the current layer. Invoke the ZOOM ALL command to display the entire limits on screen. Invoke the BLOCK command from the Block panel. AutoCAD displays the Block Definition dialog box. Enter the name RFWN-FLG in the Name text box (see Figure P11B 3) and check the Open in block editor check box. After choosing OK, AutoCAD displays the warning No Objects have been selected for the block. What do you want to do. with two options to choose: Select Objects and Continue. Choose Continue and AutoCAD opens the Block Editor (see Figure P11B 4). FIGURE P11B 3 Block Definition dialog box

15 Chapter 11 Block References and Attributes FIGURE P11B 4 Block Editor Step 7: Step 8: Invoke the RECTANGLE command from the Draw panel to draw the Flange (without the weld-neck hub), as shown in Figure P11B 5. AutoCAD prompts: Specify the first corner point or 0, 3.75 Specify the other corner point 9375,7.50 Invoke the PLINE command from the Draw panel to draw the hub (the weldneck), as shown in Figure P11B 5. AutoCAD prompts: Specify the starting point:.9375, Specify the next point or Specify the next point or , Specify the next point or [Arc/Close/Halfwidth/Length/Undo/Width]: (ENTER)

16 11-16 FIGURE P11B 5 Rectangle and Polyline objects that comprise the Geometry for the Flange NOTE The dimensions of the geometry are arbitrarily drawn to comply with those of the flange; flange O.D. ¼ , length ¼ , and thickness ¼ They could just as well be drawn to comply with the dimensions of one of the other three pipe-size/flange-rating combinations, or even rounded off to dimensions that aren t on any of them. Once the action/parameters have been created and the block has been inserted, these action/parameters can be used to change the values to comply with the proper dimensions. Also, for this exercise, the thickness will be ignored (it is for appearances only and does not affect the overall piping makeup dimensions) as will the dimension for the base of the hub where it attaches to the flange. Step 9: From the Parameter Sets tab of the Block Authoring Palettes window, invoke the LINEAR STRETCH parameter set. AutoCAD prompts: Specify the starting point or (select Label from the shortcut menu) Enter distance property label <Distance>: LENGTH (ENTER) Specify the starting point or (select midpoint of the face of the flange, as shown in Figure P11B 6) Specify the endpoint: (select the endpoint of the weld-neck) Specify the label location: (specify the label location, as shown in Figure P11B 7)

Double-click on the exclamation point to assign the Stretch action. AutoCAD prompts: Specify the first corner of stretch frame or (specify the first corner of stretch frame as shown in Figure P11B 8) Specify the opposite corner: (specify the opposite corner) Select the objects: (select the polyline that depicts the weld-neck) Select the objects: (press (ENTER) to complete the selection)

18 11-18 FIGURE P11B 8 The gate valve Step 11: This completes the assigning of the stretch action. Similarly assign two additional Linear Stretch parameter/actions from the midpoint of the flange face of the flange to the upper and lower corners of the face (see Figure P11B 8). Name the Linear Stretch parameter set for the top one as Half Flg Dia 1 and bottom one as Half Flg Dia 2. On each end, use the crossing selection to select the rectangle representing the flange and the polyline representing the weld-neck to be the geometry associated with the actions. Be sure to select only the appropriate end and not the whole rectangle representing the flange. FIGURE P11B 9 Adding the flange half diameters Step 12: Select Lookup Parameter from the Parameters tab. AutoCAD prompts: Specify the parameter location or (choose a point near the geometry to place the lookup parameter)

19 Double-click the exclamation mark of the Lookup parameter. AutoCAD invokes the Lookup Action and prompts: Specify the action location: (choose a point to place the lookup action) AutoCAD displays the Property Lookup Table (see Figure P11B 10). Chapter 11 Block References and Attributes FIGURE P11B 10 Property Lookup Table Step 13: Choose Add Properties and AutoCAD displays the Add Parameter Properties dialog box. Select Linear in the Parameter Name listing as Add input properties type (see Figure P11B 11) and choose OK. AutoCAD returns you to the Property Lookup Table dialog box where you can enter the values for the properties under the LENGTH column. FIGURE P11B 11 Add Parameter Properties dialog box

20 11-20 Step 14: Under the LENGTH column, specify the values for the flange lengths for each pipe-size/flange-rating combination. Under the Lookup column in the Lookup Properties section, enter each pipe-size/flange-rating (see Figure P11B 12). Below the Lookup column, change the read-only selection to Allow reverse lookup. Choose Audit, and if there are no duplications or errors, AutoCAD will display the No errors found alert. Choose OK to return to the Property Lookup Table dialog box. FIGURE P11B 12 Property Lookup Table with Length Input Properties Step 15: Repeat steps 13 and 14 for the Half Flg Dia 1 and Half Flg Dia 2 parameters, adding the values for the half diameters of the flanges (see Figure P11B 13). After adding all the values, choose OK to close the Property Lookup Table dialog box. NOTE Whenever you make additions to the data, the text box under Custom changes back to read only. So be sure to repeat the following part of step 14: Below the Lookup column, change the read-only selection to Allow reverse lookup.
