I see that when exporting to PCF I can only seem to choose by line number. Is there a way to switch this so I can export everything by service into one file or by all selected parts? Or by all conected parts into one file? Same goes when generating Iso's. The reason is we have high temp/pressure pipes that we send to Auotpipe for stress analysis and Autopipe, as far as I know, can only import one PCF file at a time and can't merge them.
If I cannot change this then I shall add it to the wishlist if its not there already.
Have you tried to just change the Override Iso splitting to Split Iso when property changes? This allows you to select the other items listed.
Thanks for the response, but that doesnt solve my question. Its not exporting ISO's its exporting PCF files using PCF Export. It forces me to choose Line Numbers only. I would like to export by service or selected items.
Run an Iso as you would normally, you'll still get the PCF file from however you initially selected it.
Even when I run a production ISO I have to run everything by line number, I would like to be able to choose service over line number and be able to export all linenumbers into 1 pcf.
Use the Quick Iso function to manually select lines. You can filter out the lines via layers for example, show/hide whatever is required or not, then use Quick Iso to select those lines. It will create the pcf and the dwg file.
I do understand what you are trying to do. However, there is not a selection option that will allow you to do this. The only option I see is what Tomislav wrote in his last post.
I have forwarded this also to our developers as an enhancement request, since I agree this would be a nice feature .
