Like this kind of componets in the picture.  The catologue and the iso skey are all custom by users.  And then when making ISOdraft the problem in the 1st picture occurred.


In their projects, there are many components like this, for example, multiple-way vavle (as picture) also has the same problem.



We has been nagged by this problem for a long time. Please help us to solve it. 

Thanks a million.

I have the same problem with the isogen. I use P3D 2013.

The isogen can not handle well the multiple port valves properly (more than two ports) unless the ports point against eachother in a valve.

If the port centerlines does not come together in one point, the iso generator will not put properly the symbol.

You can see the iso centerline when you select in the 3D model a component. And the centerlines do not intersect eachother in the valve.

Unfortunately I do not know the solution for that problem.

I think it is a isogen issue and has to be developed in the future.

the valves in plant are 'inline' components, what you have in your model, I would call a piece of equipment, not a valve

So, what about U-shape tee? Could it be equipment?  And how to define  this kind of vavle align, if they aren't "inline".
