HOW TO MAKE SLOPE LINE IN PDMS

Posted by Antony Thomas at Saturday, October 16, 2010

SLOPING A PIPE 1/8” TO A FOOT
MAKE SURE THAT YOU DO A SAVE BEFORE START THIS PROCESS. THIS WILL ALLOW YOU TO
ABORT YOUR SESSION WITH OUT A SAVE.
1. SELECT THE PIPE THAT NEEDS TO BE SLOPED

2. LAUNCH MENU OPTION “ORIENTATE – COMPONENT ‐ SLOPE

http://piping-info.blogspot.com/2010/10/how-to-make-slope-line-in-pdms.html
PDMS ---> Orientate -->> Component --> Slope

3. LOOK AT THE SLOPE DIALOG BOX NOTE THE FOLLOWING:
http://piping-info.blogspot.com/2010/10/how-to-make-slope-line-in-pdms.html
a. FALL IS SELECTED
b. THE VALUE IS 1/100 WHICH IS EQUIAL TO 1/8”
c. SLOPE IS SHOWN TO BE DOWN
d. SELECT APPLY TO EXCEPT THE VALUES – IF NEED BE YOU CAN DO A RESET WHICH WILL
REVERSE WHAT YOU HAD SET IT TO.
4. NOTE THAT THE LINE BETWEEN THE 90 ELLS IS NOW DASHED. THIS IS INDICATING THAT THE
ELBO’S ARE NOT ALLIGNED ANY LONGER.

7. WHILE KEEPING THE POINT 2 ELBO YOUR CE DO A “THRU ID CURSOR” YOU WILL BE RELOCATING
image THE RED ELBO WHICH IS OUR CURRENT ELEMENT “CE”
a. MAKE SURE THAT YOU CHANGE YOUR BRANCH DIRECTION BACK TO THE FLOW
DIRECTION.
8. THE LINE IS NOW SLOPED BUT NEEDS TO BE FIXED DUE TO THE DASH LINE BETWEEN THE TWO
ELBO’S

9. FIXING THE LINE IS EASY JUST NEED TO LINE UP THE ELBO’S BUT DOING A “THRO ID CURSOR”
SELECTION DOES NOT LINE THEM UP DUE TO THE SLOPING LINE. SO YOU WILL NEED TO DO A
MENU OPTION ORIENTATE – COMPONET – LEAVE TO CHECK TO MAKE SURE THAT THE LEAVE
OF THE SELECTED ELBO IN THIS CASE IS POINTING DOWN.

10. MAKING SURE THE DIRECTION OF THE SELECTED ELBO IN THIS EXAMPLE IS POINT DOWN
TOWARDS THE ELBO THAT WE ARE WANTING TO RECONNECT.

11. NOW WE WILL MEASURE THE OFFSET TO SEE HOW MUCH WE WILL NEED TO MOVE THE ELBO.

12. AT THE COMMAND YOU WILL TYPE THE FOLLOWING “BY E 17/32” WHILE KEEPING THE ELBO
YOUR CURRENT ELEMENT “CE”
image
13. AFTER YOU ENTER THE INFORMATION ON THE COMMAND LINE YOUR LINE SHOULD LIKE LIKE THE FOLLOWING
