info Info

The topologic coloring of lines allows easy automatic dynamizing of tubes in technology (for media) as well as in the energy distribution (for electricity). So process controlled coloring of topological nets can easily be realized.

Because the tube structure is designed in the picture with all its technological elements (e.g. tanks and valves, resp. generators, switches and consumers), it is internally emulated as a model and the media flow is displayed in the Runtime.

In order to allow picture-overlapping models the entire design and configuration is always project-wide. So you have one entire topological model per project, which is used for the calculation of the tube stati and at last for the coloring of the tubes.

The whole topology is created automatically from the graphical design. No other engineering actions are necessary. (Topology from graphics)
