I have used Plant 3D Greetings from version 11 and have seen many improvements since then.
We are currently working a project in version 2013 and our company already has the 2014 version so I tested the program by making a copy of project to migrate to the new version with the following results.
1. - Migration to version was smooth and without incident.
2. - Created a model with three lines a head pipe 10 "insulation and reduced to 8" and two branches 6 "slope of 3 to 2 thousand and one" normal.
3. - Creation piping isometrics three lines and head out fine but the two branches isometric outside the framework generated isometric.
Thinking outside migration created a new project with Plant 3D 2014 and re-create a new model with the same features above happening the same problem.
This model was created in version 2013 and the 3 lines were generated without problems.
1. - I like them to remove the part of "Boundary Geometry" because through this option volume could define the coordinates and size of your volume, now with the new way of generating a volume you have to find a way to planes have a continuity between shots or if there is another way as hágamela know.
2. - Another option that I think is very good is "Pipe Gap Tool" but I think the symbol should be individually
Well that would be it and I would like to solve this problem as revising generally has very good improvements.
If I’m understanding correctly, your Isos are splitting onto three sheets and you want to keep it to one. However, you also mentioned that these are three different line numbers. So this is expected behavior, as-designed. Isos are line-driven, placing different line numbers on different sheets by default. If trying to minimize the number or Isos generated for one line number, be sure to select the “Force Iso onto on sheet” option in the Advanced Iso Creation Options. And as needed, use a larger sheet size (for example: C instead of B).
I send pictures of the model and the isometric that were generated from the three lines.
As shown in the isometric 10 " leaves with no problems but the branches of 6" and 2 " are generated outside the area.
The problem I see, is that when a head has branches in different diameter and different numbers of lines, the isometrics of the branches do not go well, but if they are part of the same line number isos all go well.
Be sure that the Drawing Area in the Title Block hasn’t been deleted. Go to project “properties” / Project Setup / Isometric DWG Settings / Title Block and Display /… Select the Iso style you're using here. Then select “Setup Title Block”. Is the green Draw Area box shown? (see attached image). If missing, replace using the Draw Area in the Isometric Drawing Area panel of the ribbon.
If this resolves your question, please check this as “Solved” so others can find the answer as well.
I have the exact same problem. The draw area is defined.
I can have a line which will be split into 3 ISO's, then maybe just one of them will do this trick.
We just recently updated from 2013 to 2014. If there is not a quick fix for this problem I waill have to go back to 2012(or 2013), and redo all my work to get the output we need. Thank god, we have backups of the 2012 projects, but alot of time will be lost.
I think this is a serious bug in 2014, which needs a hotfix ASAP.
