It would be good if the data manager in the drawing had all the information available from the database including Line numbers, file names plus when you have “Current Drawing Data” selected that it also gives you the option to select xref’s in that drawing. This way you could get a quick MTO without having to select the drawings in the Report Generator.

the ability to set the line gap/loop to break the horizontal in P&ID (as an option in properties with default being vertical)

P&ID + P3D: a command that copies from one item to another (fe when the tag edit dialog for a pomp is selected, it should be possible to copy properties from another pump in teh 'existing items' list ). The properties that must be copied can be flagged in the project setup.

P&ID : aquisition for multiple sources : A 3 or 4 way valve is connected to multiple pipe segments and should show the different sizes. I'ts possible for reducers, shouldn't be too difficult

Selection criteria in report creator

11-26-2012 02:49 AM in reply to: ybogdanov

Selection of line number or other criteriu in Report creator.

 

Currently in report creator you can only use project data or drawing data as a data source.

 

I would like to be able to select one or more line numbers from one or more drawing files or some other criterium that makes sense (like area or service) from which i can create a report. Now it's all or nothing.

 

Reason: For example when issuing a series of isometrics i would like to create a bulk bill of materials for thos iso's.

You can use filters in "Edit Query", column "Filter" (show filters examples in left down part of screen of window).

I'm aware of that possibility, but editing the query for a report is not somthing I would have a regular user do. 

 

Apart from the harm you can do editing the query, it's way to complicated. Moreover, using this function would mean manually typing in every line number you want to add to the query.

 

What i'm looking for is a third radio button apart form project data and drawing data where you can select the line numbers you want from a selection list (and possibly some other criteria). 

 

The only viable option I have right now is exporting everything to excel/access and filter out what I need, but that is not why we have a report creator.

CadWorx had a really simple way of getting MTO's. With a few clicks you could export a Bill of Material into Excel, Access, text or html from objects in the current drawing including xref's. You could select by line number or select the models, there was no need to worry about the Database or Report generator.

 

It would be great if there was something similar in the next release of Plant 3D.
