its possible to sum weight in ISO drawing,
now i have strange 5,10 5,15 i want to normal weight for pipe when 5 meters of pipe have 25 kg weight.
many thanks for You asnwer
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hi, I have got the same problem.
have somebody any idea, to resolve it?
How I do that?
1.- In spec Editor a Insert weight to each ND Pipe and by Kg/m
2.- For each single Part, Exactly Weight.
Insert that into Isogen Stamp table (BOM)
3.- Project Setup/Isometrics DWG Setting/Tittle Block and Display/Setup Tittle Block/Table Setup/Add Column/Pipe and Equipment/Weight.
Perhaps this is not the way and must be other, but I do´nt know.
Can you Help Us?
Searching in the program about this problem a find a Readme file of Plant 2013.

I'd like to make sure I understand what you need for weights. For piping components (tee, elbow, valve) I think you want the weight of one item in the weight column for that item. E.g. if you have 5 elbows and they weigh 10lbs apiece, you want 10 not 50. Correct?
For pipe, if the pipe weights 10 lbs per ft and you have a 25 ft quantity of piping, you'd want the row in the BOM to show 250, not 10. Is that correct?
We rarely show weights on our isometric drawings, usually thats handled through a more traditional BOM. All the same, it would be useful in some cases, like isometrics for the stress engineers. Given the option, I'd like a couple of different possible weight values in an isometric BOM: one for per-component weight, and another for total weight for that entry. As your example, the line for components (e.g. elbows) would be similar to:
1 4" ELBOW, 90 DEG LR, SCH. 80, ASTM A-234 GR. WPB 5 10 50
... where the 5 is the unit count, 10 is the weight-per-component, and 50 is the total. Having the option for one, or the other, or both, is useful for the usual "where did this number come from?", "how much for just one?", and "how much for everything?" questions from engineers and purchasing.
As your example for pipe, it would be similar to:
1 4" PIPE, SMLS, SCH. 40, ASTM A-106 GR. B 1205mm _ 50
... where _ is the per-length-unit weight and 50 is the total weight for that length. I don't see a need for a per-length-unit weight for linear components like pipe.
Also, when there is weight values available it is nice (but not essential) for sub-totals and totals in the BOM: fabrication, erection, miscellaneous; supports; and so on.
