a match line number & spec button..
its slow to go to properties and change line numbers, when one exists already, plus its a pain when my line number list is in the hundreds.... scrolling through them all...ahhhhh!!!! help!
I miss an "Explorer" for Piplins to finde fast pipline parts.
Use the data manager. In 2013 you can use the drop down at the bottom left to switch the view to by area, and then you can view line groups. Click on the header row will select and zoom to the items even if they are in another drawing.
Sorry I don´t know how.
in my Datamanger 2012 German version is that not available.
Annotate xref assemblies similar to Orthographic Views.
We create our arrangement drawings by using xrefs of our steelwork and pipework models, these are very large and contain Prosteel objects. At this stage we will not be using Plant 3D orthographic views.
It would be good if Plant 3D could do this by retrieving the line number, or tag information from the xref model and placing it in Paperspace. Similar to how CadWorx does it.
Isometric start point.
I have mentioned this in an earlier post and the response from Autodesk support is it will be logged as an enhancement request.
On our last project using CadWorx we had over 400 pipe models creating over 550 isometrics. I could open a piping assembly and batch create the isometrics, having the Isogenstartpoint set up on each model saved a lot of time and rework. This type of command should not be thought of as an enhancement but a necessary part of the program.
Speed up Isometric creation. While it does work in the background this is not much help since you usually have the model finished and are waiting for the isometric to see that everything is correct.
