What I meant was to be able to create orthos without getting the ortho dwg-s to Project Manager... because P3D often creates corrupted orthos (some lines missing, some valves cut half..) and I need to make multiple orthos to get a correct one and I don't want the Project Manager to be filled with trash orthos. Just like with ISO-s: you get to "test" the isos and dwg-s capability of creating isos correctly with quick iso command before creating the production isos.

Integration with Vault would be a huge advantage, especially for projects with multiple users

Another important thing:

- Posibility to use catalog elements during CustomPart inserction.

- Posibility to use "Auxiliar SPECS" (like suports for example) which will be adapt to current spec.

 

The tarjet of this two solutionts is posibility to have one catalog of ALL Valves, and another catalog of ALL Instruments for example. And when I rute any pipe with spec CS300 for example and I want to insert any valve, it will be posible to insert valve from this "Auxiliar Spec" and this valve is necessary to adapt automatically to the current spec (CS300).

 I think that there are projects that you don't know which type of valves you go to using. And may be there are 30 types of valves. That's why the better solution is not to have this elements in each spec.

 One spec for valves and instruments, like suports spec.

I didn't understand all of your story but imo that's the reason for the "placeholder" option when inserting Custom part...

Afterwards, when the decision has been made, you can replace the placeholder with the defined valve.

 

 

Below is wat I meant...

 

 

Best regards,

In custom Part menu is not posible to insert elements from catalogs directly, without using spec.

What about creating Ducting, Transition bends, Ducting supports.

I hope this will be included.

Configurable automatic weld numbering

 

- Choose (part of) line to number

- Choose starting point

- Choose starting number

- Coose branches

 

For me as piping contractor consistent weld numbering through revisions is key, beacuse of welding tracability.

 

Welds on supports

 

Adding welds on supports like welded shoes and for things like shear lugs and weld eyes

 

Additional materials

 

Things like shear lugs that belong to the pipeline and you may want in the material list

 

Generation of 3D PDF

 

I am aware of the possibility to generate 3D DWFx and NWD files, but they require a viewer to be installed, which can be a problem for clients with regard to ICT restrictions.

 

DWFx can also work online with Autocad 360, but this requires registration for the client and the performance and functionality is limited (layers, viewpoints, animations, lighting, etc.)

1)Please provide us with the ability to place reference points in a 3d model that will show up with dimensions on isometrics,  for example have it show reference dimensions from a column line to the center line of pipe?

 

2)Also please fix the insulation and grating display abilities in navisworks, currently they only show correctly in Navisworks if you export an .nwc from Plant3d 2013.

Seconded

it would be great if you could bring through a grid line to dimension to.
