Abstract:

The 3D Piping IGES Application Protocol AP specifies the mechanisms for defining and exchanging 3D piping system models in IGES format. The A.P defines three-dimensional arrangement data of piping systems which includes definition data types of geometry shape and location, connectivity, and material characteristics. The scope of this AP includes only piping system data and not drawings or internal details of equipment. The specified piping model is sufficiently detailed to support the fabrication and final assembly of a piping system. IGES is designed to support a broad range of applications and informations and it is recognized that few implementations will support all of the specification. An application protocol defines a logical subschema of the IGES specification. the usage of the subschema, and the necessary benchmarks for testing implementations. The 3D Piping IGES Application Protocol is the first IGES AP to be delivered to industry and is an important example for the development of STEP Standard for the Exchange of Product Model Data application protocols.
