Easier 3D modelling. Eg:
Is it so hard to put a Hold Column in the spec editor while modifying the component properties? Eg: Try to put the schedule on a pipe, by sizes, but the spec only goes so far; so you have only a bunch of sizes from the whole package and need to scroll all the way to next house to reach the schedule column but you lost you way/your size by then....
It is also valid for the Data Manager, in fact it's valid everywhere there is a table, just like Excel has Freeze Columns.
32)Collect source blocks of joint numbers.
In this way the leader lines will be deleted and there will be empty space.
For collect instruction, let user select that.
33)A mechanism for finding lines in iso drawing in project manager; something like “data grid view” with filter possibility.
How can I find a created iso while there more than one hundred lines in the plant; it seems Autodesk created this software for a plant with max 20 lines !
How can software written in the last two years be this poor?
Autodesk have all the knowledge of Autoplant and Cadworx to pull on.
Off page connectors do not stay connected reliably and line connectivity won't register from one p&id to the next, spec writing is a minefield what with their being so many fields to change and view.
For a valve all that should be necessary to change is the size, rating, end code, and face to face dimension.
Valve operators don't stay connected, finding the field to change the operator type amongst all the other data is crazy (open Autoplant c. 2007 to see what a dialog box looks like), tie-ins don't list correctly on the line list, iso's don't split reliably.................
The isogen drawings for sloped pipe also give grave errors, this is that it creates the isos but the angles are all about 45° and is no way near legible. This error is an internal error of the software development and was not corrected in 2014, for Mining and minerals piping this really defeats the object of using Plant 3D, as cant produce any Iso's???? We wish this could get fixed!
If a line is drawn too far from the world 0 location, this also creates connection problems on sloped pipe? The iso symbols also flip over incorrectly when the isos are produced. A great wish for this to be fixed as well.
