Select all pipes connected via Line Number by choosing the desired Line Number Tag.
Why was it developed?
Users often need to select all pipes of the same Line Number in order to make the same modifications to all of them. They first need to identify all Line Numbers active in the drawing by manually hovering over each pipe and then selecting the appropriate pipes. This task involves a tremendous amount of manual labor with a high scope for error. Moreover, the effort needs to repeated when selecting the pipe layout of a different Line Number. This can be solved using the native Data Manager tool but it still requires multiple clicks.
Output and value addition
At Pinnacle, we construct certainty with technology. Our R&D Division developed a Line Number Selector automation tool to reduce this entire process into a single command line entry.
The tool first generates the complete list of all the Line Number Tags available in the selected area and by selecting the Line Number Tag from the available List, the whole Pipe Line get selected.
And just like that, we have optimized productivity, eliminated errors, and constructed certainty.
