Plant 3D questions

I have some few questions on Plant 3D.


  1. For Ortho Drawing for Structure, how do you create weldment table, weight table and BOM part list just like in isometric?
  2. How can you display the weight of the component in BOM (Isometric).
  3. How can you calculate the center of gravity of skid from plant3D.
  4. How can you display the value of Weight, Schedule in data manager.

1. For Structure, you can get some information from Data Manager, but its a manual process, not automated.

2. If you are talking about Pipe, then add the Weight to the BOM Table by editing the Iso Style, and its under the options for editing the sheet and the BOM table. For Structure, I don't think its possible.

3. Not possible

4. They should already be displayed, for Pipe.

This thread is old but I will re-ask the following questinon:


3. How can you calculate the center of gravity of skid from plant3D.
