In the Project Manager under Isometrics and then Dimensions you can check the box for End to END. it says that you can OPTIONALLY STOP AT VALVES AND BRANCHES. My question is how do you tell it to stop at these points?

Figured it out. Add strinf (in red) to the IsoConfig.xml file...


<!-- End to End dimension -->
<!-- 'Enabled': 'true' or 'false' -->
<!-- 'StackOrder': Specfies the sequence if multiple dimension types are used.
<!-- 'FittingToFittingGasketDimension': Add an anchor point to the gasket which
is located between two fittings. e.g. flanged-valve -> gasket -> flanged-valve. -->
<DimensionType Name="Overall" Enabled="true" StackOrder="3"
<!-- Components to exclude -->
<!-- 'Enabled': 'true' or 'false'; If 'true' the exclusion rule is enabled.
<Exclusion Name="ExcludeCap" Enabled="true" Filter="Cap" />
<Exclusion Name="ExcludeGasket" Enabled="true" Filter="Gasket" />
<Exclusion Name="ExcludeFLValve" Enabled="true" Filter="FLValve" />
