Greetings All !!

 

Please help! I have a problem with one of my custom iso symbols. I have tried this solution but unsuccess:

http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-Plant-3D/Iso-Symbol-Works-Sometimes/m-p/3624432#M7063

 

I have created a new end type TC for Port 1 (S1), and:

 

- Port 2 (S2): BV

- Symbol Type: FLANGE

- Symbol SKEY: My mapped skey symbol, aka MNDT

- Component Category: Flange (Welding neck flange)

 

See images:

 

New End Type

Symbol Block with FlipY parameter and Flip1 action:

The isometric with mirrored TC Niple symbol, 3D (green box) ok:

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!

 

P3D 2013.

 

PS.: If I change Port 1 (S1) to FL, isometric generates succesfully with no mirrored symbols!

Not yet... Unfortunatelly till now we need to flip 2D blocks manually, and no autodesk support or answer about that issue. I hope someone tell us that this annoying behavior is not present on 2014, or at least they are working on a workaround/fix.
