Hey, I find there is a problem in Isometric generation in Autodesk plant design suite. I modelled a line and generated a Isometric, it spliting into 3 drawings, even after I tried with advanced option to force into 1 sheet. Because of this problem, we hold the purchase of software.

Did you check all of the parts and connectors (welds, bolt kits, etc) to make sure they are assigned the same line number tag?

 

Just as a test, try this:

 

1. Select all of the compoents in your pipe run

2. Look in the properties palette

3. Check "Line Number Tag"

 

It should not show *VARIES*

 

If it does, then you have at least one or more components in the pipe run that is assigned to a different tag (or unassigned) causing the Iso to split the parts out on separate sheets.

 

One of the recent updates has been the "Add to Selection" feature. This allows you to select one part in the pipe run, then select all parts that are assigned to the same number (whether they are connected or not) This is very useful for troubleshooting line number tag assignments.

One other thing to mention; you might try a larger title block size. Such as a D size sheet as opposed to the default.
