I'm in Aplant3D 2014 and trying to generate an orthographic drawing from the model (for the first time in this software). It looks like I'm following all the correct steps and setting the view area for desired view in the ortho editor. With the paper check feature it looks like the scale is good for the display. The orthoeditor is viewing 3 selected dwgs in the project which amounts to a floor plan with equipment and piping. Once the ortho view is generated and up to date, the viewport is BLANK with nothing visible.
They are all part of the project. I have found after research that the equipment in the file was given to us by the equipment vendors as a 3D solid then we converted to equipment. It seems there is something about the equip that APlant doesn't like. With the equip placed in another project file and xref'ed as an overlay, I can at least get the piping and bldg geometry. I'm still working on getting the equipment to cooperate.
Thanks, for you help,
I found that we have to insert equipment models as a block and then convert, if we xref and then convert, the equipment does not display in the views.
