About Isometric Drawing Generation (ISOGEN)
Piping provides an ISOGEN interface that allows you to create isometric drawings of pipelines. The Isometric Drawing Generation (ISOGEN) interface exports material and geometrical data from a Piping model to a readable ISOGEN .pcf (Piping Component File) format. This format serves as an input to ISOGEN for creating pipeline, spool, and system isometric drawings.
Using the Generate Isometric dialog box ( Drawing) you can create isometric drawings from Piping models. You can select pipelines, set up filenames and directories, and export the data to an intermediate .pcf file(s). ISOGEN reads this .pcf file data and generates the isometric drawings in various standard data formats.
* You must first set the ISOGEN configuration options to use the ISOGEN interface generation tool.
