Re: P3D 2012: ISO setting problems

09-08-2011 12:31 AM in reply to: pkw167

Hi

 

Similar to this, I am having a problem configuring the ISO settings to refer to specific piping items.

Example: I have flexible hose couplings inside my spec, in the previous ISO settings, in the Spec Editor, I put the iso info as follows:

ISO TYPE: MISC-COMPONENT

ISO SKEY: FXSW

 

How do I go about mapping the new symbols to these existing items?

Or how would I choose a specific block to be placed when the ISO TYPE and SKEY are as what I have mentioned above?

 

Thanks!

Title block & display page in Project Setup, Click Edit isometric Symbols... to create a symbol and name it. remember to add ports for hose connector.

 

Go to install folder: \AutoCAD Plant 3D 2012 - English\ISOProjectTemplates

 

Open IsoSkeyACADBlockMap.xml, add your skey and block name into it.

 

Create Iso.

Hi,

 

One small addition.

 

Please edit the IsoSkeyACADBlockMap.xml file in the project that you are going to add the new isometric symbols.

 

That is, open IsoSkeyACADBlockMap.xm in say C:\Users\<username>\Documents\MyNewProject\Isometric, and add your skey and block name in that file.

 

You can also update the files (the IsoSymbolStyles.dwg and the IsoSkeyACADBlockMap.xml)  in the install folder (\AutoCAD Plant 3D 2012 - English\ISOProjectTemplates) if you want *every* new project, in the given unit system, created from there on to have the new symbols and skeys.

 

If you want only the current working project to have the new skey support, please update only the project files.

 

HTH.

 

Ratti.

Ratti is correct. Try to modify all the files in project folder not install folder.
