isometric title block attribute centring

  In autoPlant 3D 2012. I have edited the Isometric title block through the project properties.  The tiltes attributes are mapped to the project and created to be centered.  Everything looks good until you create the Iso's.  The center justified text is not centered.  see attached shots.

  I recreated changes from scratch in new job and have same outcome?  Any suggestions? Is this a known problem?

Thanks for any help.

Hi,

 

This is a known issue that has been reported to our developers.

 

To workaround the issue you need to run the ATTSYNC command on the Isometric drawing.

 

Thanks,

Dan

Are you saying this is fixed?  I'm running 2014 with Ext.1 and it is not fixed for me.

Can someone from Autodesk confirm that this is being looked at?

On a large project we can have several hundred ISO's and this takes a lot of time to fix. I'm sure I'm not the only one with this issue.

It should be a priority.

Hi,

Some how I can not go to the Forum anymore, maybe the Cie. block that site.

No, the Autodesk supporter said that they send to the developer team to work on that. And right now it's has no news even with the version 2015 not even corrected yet.

You know what, I tried the 2015 plant3d, but no improve on the Isogen side. (ex.: it's still have the problems on the small size of piping like threaded fitting, socket weld fitting, anyway, when you try to pull on the iso for the small size with threaded and socket welded fittings, it does not do the job well.) do you have that problems?

Even on version 2015 not fixed yet.

 

by the way, some errors on version 2014 doesn't fixed on version 2015.

I work the most on small piping under 3" with threaded connection and socket welded connection, and 3d plant Isogen has some errors when I pull out the Iso drawing. I was report to Autodesk, but the errors doesn't fixed yet on the version 2015, hopefully it'll come by 2016. Now I stuck with that.

RE: This Topic

 

Here is a band aid. Create a *.lsp file and copy this into it and then put it in your startup suite:

 

(defun FixTitleAttributes (/ ss e) 
  (setq ss (ssget "_X" '((2 . "Title Block"))))
  (if (and (not(null ss)) (>= (sslength ss) 1))
    (progn
      (setq e (ssname ss 0))
      (command "ATTSYNC" "S" e "Y")
      )
    )
  (princ)
  )

(FixTitleAttributes)

 Reposted: to use code block and fix a portion of code. This is a stripped down version of what I use; its not tested, but should work.

 

 

RE: The fact that this issue has been persistant over a large number of P3D releases

 

I am a recent user of Plant 3D and thus far am quite disturbed by the lack of development on the product. Again, so far I've seen nothing that instills hope for the future. I really wish PID/P3D were independantly developed. I feel very strongly that they have spread their resources way to thin on this package and it is proven by this ridiculous/persistant problem. If they want PID and P3D to talk then develop that "module" independantly! In the meantime give us a functional piping program!
