In this blog article we present the new PlantSpecDriven function for rule-based insertion of branch symbols.
We show two cases for this new function is used. In the first example, symbols will be inserted for which calculations will be executed and the user is not supposed to insert every branch symbol by hand.
In the second example, regular Tees wiIl be inserted automatically.
The user creates rules for both cases to define the conditions under which the symbols should be inserted.
In the expression editor you can use all properties of the Pipe Line Group and the Pipe Line Segment for the main and the branch line.
