HI All.

I got a trouble when I create an iso.I would like to insert the plant-dwg-file's name into the iso drawing.For example,if the plant-dwg-file's name is 'PipeInAreaA.dwg',what I want to insert is just 'PipeInAreaA'.

For that, I tried to click "Title Block Attributes", selected 'Drawing Properties→Drawing Name',and inserted it on the table cell.But that didn't work.

So my problem is that how to get the plant-dwg-file's name in isometric.

 

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

Sorry but the mapping of the dwg file name to the iso title block is not feasible at the moment as the dwg file is just a stand alone drawing right now.

 

This has already been identified as a wishlist and our developers are looking into it.

 

But I can suggest a work around which is to use the LDT (line dimension table) option, with this option you can use the excel spreadsheet to map the model dwg name to the Iso title block..

Maybe the LDT is no better than modify the .pcf file  manually,I think.
