I’ve experiencing some weird actions in the Structure Mode of P3D 2014. Following the walk through of the actions that cause the error:
1 – I've made some lines for guide my structure (1200 X 600 X 1200)
2 – I've applied the “Member” command to turn the line into Structure (AISC > C > C4x7.2)
3 - I've used the “Structure edit” button to change the orientation and align point
4 – I've used the “Miter Cut Member” to join the edges of the structure
5 – “Save” and “Export to Autocad”.
When I open the drawing exported from P3D the edges are not cutted and the alignment of the Structure is wrong.
Same thing happens if I simply explode the Structure Member, or even if I create an Ortho View from the P3D command.
I've tried this with with the 2013 version, and everything is ok. No error.
Any Idea on what may have happened?
I was able to reproduce the problem as well. I have passed this along to the Plant Development team and they will be looking into correcting the issue. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
I discovered this problem as well a couple of days ago. This seems to happen with all the channel shaped sections on all the various specs. Hope the dev team will cook up a fix fast. Thanks for rasiing the issue.
Does not work for Plate as well in ortho view nor exported dwg. And if i somehow change the COG of the plate, the entire plate dissapears from the ortho view.
How come this was not tested before releasing the product?
we just bought Plant 2014 - and an issue still there. i see plates as single lines in my orthos, and i dont see railings at all!!! what's the use of those fancy things if they doesnt translate into simple ortho drawing???
I can't confirm/deny the bug, in that I have Ext 1 installed. That said, I do not get the bug, so like Rave.Tam suggests, the Ext 1 may have had as a by-product, the fix.
