From the setup I have changed Valve annotations to Text only w/leader for control valves as to Non-control valves but isometrics doesn't show valve tag numbers??
I have also tried to change setup to something else with no effect.
Is there some athor setup for tags what I kind locate or is there somekind bug?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have the same problem. I don't get the valve tags out onto the isometric drawing.
Did you manage to solve the problem? If so, how?
I just tried it and it seems to work for me. Can you attach the PCF that is used to generate the iso and maybe i can take a look? Or, if you can open up the PCF file and search for the valve in question and make sure it has a 'TAG' attribute explicitly specified, like below ...
Ah ha! Thanks for PCF. I managed to figure it out. The valves without tag annotations are identified as being part of a vent/drain ... and the vent/drain theme in the iso styles by default have no tag annotations for valves. The Annotation settings dialog in Plant 3D only controls the 'Default' theme. This is unlike the Dimension settings dialog where you can change dimension settings for all themes (Default, Small bore, Vent/Drain, etc.)
To get tag annotations in the vent/drain theme, you will need to go into IsoConfig.xml. Find the Themes/VentDrainPipingTheme/Annotations/Annotation
<ComponentScheme Name="Tag" AnnotationStyle="WipeCircle" Grouping="true" Tag="XX" Alignment="FlatHorizontal" LeaderStyle="AsNeeded" Filter="Valve" Fields="TAG" />
<ComponentScheme Name="InstrumentTag" AnnotationStyle="WipeCircle" Tag="XX" Alignment="FlatHorizontal" LeaderStyle="Always" Filter="Instrument" Fields="TAG" />
You'll find these two lines in the 'Default' theme also (so essentially you're duplicating these in the vent/drain theme).
This should start giving you tag annotations for valves and instruments that are part of vent/drain piping as well. Hope this helps
Ah, you added those annotations to the small bore piping theme (this won't do any harm but is not needed as small-bore piping theme derives its settings from the Default theme unless an override is specified).
I've edited and attached the isoconfig.xml file where i added the annotations to the vent/drain piping theme instead, which is what you need. Try it out and let me know.
