To Delete Insulation in Non Spec-Driven Piping
1. Open the assembly containing the pipeline and the insulation to be deleted.
* The Model Tree view must be set to display features in order to delete insulation features from within it. Click > Tree Filters. The Model Tree Items dialog box opens. Under Display, check the Features box and click OK.
2. In the Model Tree, locate the assembly containing the insulated pipeline and the corresponding insulation feature. You can delete the following types of insulation:
Insulation Features—Stores the insulation data (codes, names, thickness, sizes, and so on) for a pipeline. Piping identifies the insulation features by insulation code.
Insulation Segment Features—Stores the start and end points for insulation on part of a pipe segment. Note that the insulation segment feature is a child of the related insulation feature. If you delete an insulation feature, Piping deletes all related children, including the insulation segment feature, if applicable. If you delete the insulation feature from an insulated pipeline that also contains a partially insulated segment, all insulation data will be deleted.
3. To locate the insulation segment feature to delete:
a. Select the insulation feature and right-click.
b. From the shortcut menu, select Information > Reference Viewer. The Reference Viewer opens. Under Children, Piping lists all children of the selected insulation feature. Insulation segment features are labeled Insulation Seg id <number>.
4. Select the insulation feature to delete from the Model Tree. The feature is highlighted on the pipeline in the graphics window. Right-click, and a shortcut menu appears.
5. Click Delete and select an option:
OK—Deletes the selected insulation and all child features.
Options—Opens the Children Handling dialog box.
1. Click Local or External to view the list of local and external children.
2. Select a child object, then select an option from the Status list: Suppress, Suspend or Freeze.
3. Click OK.
6. You can also click the arrow next to Insulation and click Delete Insulation. The insulation is deleted.
