P3D 2012 Isometric Fabrication-Item vs. Erection-Item

I wanted to place Valves, Instruments,Supports,etc.  in the the Erection Category without changing it in the .PCF file.  Are there settings in the isoconfig file that dictate which category these items get placed in?


Thanks in advance.

There is a property for each 3d object in your model called "Shop/Field"
Your fabrication items should be set to Shop and Erection items set to Field. Looks like the settings within your ISO Border/Table Settings is set correctly, with the splitting of Erection and Fabrication items.
