Adding a 3D view in an ortho drawing

Hi everyone,

 

I'm just wandering if it's possible to add an isometric view of the plant design (not a piping isometric) in an ortho drawing sheet. Because I can't figure out how if it is. I'm using P3D 2012

 

Thanks

What I do is create a new 3D model in the project (like isometric view).

Than insert as a DWG reference the basic model into the new model.

Than rotate the whole xref 45 degree around the Z axis and 30 degree around the X axis.

Than open the ortho drawing and create a new ortho view from the new isometric view model, and select top or front view.

Since I rotated the xref model, the view will be isometric view. And the xref will be updated whenewher I changed the base model.

Hi,

ISO work around - gives a great ortho/ISO view

 

Thanks

Is posible to hide any pipe before generation iso ortho? I probe to hide layers but when ortho is generated, program draw all pipes...

 I think that iso drawing of each pipe in ortho is better that iso generation in isogen. The automatic dimensions it will be good tool too.

You can hide pipe in the x-ref axonometric view, but you have to turn off the layers in the base model and the x-ref model as well.

But if you want to use the axonometric ortho view instead of ISO generator, how you will make the BOM, and how will you place the item numbers on the drawing? By hand?

Thank you for solution.

 It's posible to add annotations of ortho, but it's not the best solution. Now is dificult to add table too (only with excel). But I hope that the Autodesk developers add any tool for futures release. Isogen it's very old, it's necessary evolve, and not copy existing programs.
