It has long been a frustration that it is not possible to export the parameters of the pipe supports in Autodesk® AutoCAD® Plant 3D.
Even if support is stretched to become two times longer than the original instance, for Plant 3D the two supports remained identical.
This will change from now on.
- The parameters can be exported to a CSV file.
- The parameters can be added to the supports’ description, this way they can be shown in the Report Creator or on the Isometric / Ortho drawings’ Bill Of Materials
- These parameters can be also added to the supports’ tags with an automatically generated running number as well!
Additionally, these naming conventions can be customized. For instance, you can generate a list of supports based on a single parameter or include all available parameters. Furthermore, you can choose which parameters to incorporate into the support descriptions. This eliminates the need for manual measurement and entry of these values.
