You can also manage documents, components, and packages in the 3D modeling tasks
using the Tools > Drawings Console command. For more information, see the Common User's
Guide.
Delivered Components and Folders
When you first enter the Drawings and Reports task, the Management Console is empty except
for the top-most level, the Model. You add Folders to the Model, then begin adding
components and packages to the folders you create. For example, you could add a folder and call it
Equipment, then add the Imperial_Equipment Drawing package to the folder to create
Equipment drawings.
The delivered components are shown on the General tab of the Add Component dialog box.
They include:

Console. The Drawings by Query Manager is used
in conjunction with other components, such as the
Orthographic Drawing by Query and Piping
Isometric Drawing by Query components, to
complete the query for objects in the model. The
Drawings by Query Manager provides the filter that
specifies the "where" side of the query. It tells the
query "where" to look for the objects specified by
the component "what" filter. More information is
available in the Orthographic Drawings Users
Guide and the Piping Isometric Drawings User's
Guide.
Generic Module Folder Creates a Generic Module Folder in the Console.
The Generic Module Folder component provides a
way for you to run your custom VB modules to
create custom drawings. You set up the Generic

filter-based query to collect the objects and
document them automatically. More information is
available in the Orthographic Drawings User's
Guide.
Piping Isometric Drawing by
Query
Creates a Piping Isometric Drawings by Query
component in the Console. You create isometric
drawing by associating a Piping Isometric Drawing
by Query component to a Query Manager. The
Piping Isometric Drawing by Query component
specifies the "what" portion of the query, while the
Query Manager specifies the "where". More
information is available in the Piping Isometric
Drawings User's Guide.
Spreadsheet Reports
Creates a Spreadsheet Report component in the
Console. More information is available in the
Reports User's Guide.
Search Folder
Creates a Search Folder in the Console. Search
Folders allow you to search for documents based on
common properties such as out-of- date status,
approval, or documents that have been published to
a certain contract in integrated environment. More
information is available in the Orthographic
Drawings User's Guide.
Volume Drawings
Creates a Volume Drawings component in the
Console. The Volume Drawing component uses a
template to create drawings. You can place a view
on the template and associate the view with a view
style to control the output. To define the contents of
the view, you create a drawing volume in the model.
More information is available in the Orthographic
Drawings User's Guide.

3D Model Data
You can create a 3D Model Data component and base it on a specific filter. The filter defines
the contents of the component documents when they are created. You can use the 3D Model Data
component to output SmartPlant Review files or CAD (SAT) files. For more information on
setting up the 3D Model Data component, see Setup a 3D Model Data component.
Output as Neutral CAD (SAT) Graphics File
You can setup the 3D Model Data component to output your model objects to a neutral CAD (.sat)
file format. Right-click the 3D Model Data component and select Setup to set the filter and output
file path.
Output as SmartPlant ReviewFile
If you are using the 3D Model Data component to output as SmartPlant Review files, there are
three files the software generates depending on how you set up the 3D Model Data component. If
you are working in an integrated environment (registered with the SmartPlant Registration
Wizard), the software creates all three files: ZVF, VUE, and XML. If you are not working in an
integrated environment, the software only creates the VUE and XML files.
You can set the output on the 3D Model Data component to save the SmartPlant Review (SPR)
file to disk, database, or both. If your model has been registered using the SmartPlant Registration
Wizard, the software also creates a ZVF file during the update process. The SmartPlant Review
VUE file is never published. Likewise, the ZVF file is never copied to the disk; it must be saved to
the database for publishing to SmartPlant Foundation. For more information, see the SmartPlant
3D Installation Guide, available from Help > Printable Guides.
The basic workflow for creating a 3D Model Data component is:
Define your workspace logically, based on divisions such as Unit or Area, instead of choosing
a filter based on the entire model.
Create a 3D Model Data component and set it up with a filter and output file information.
Create the 3D Model Data document (one document per 3D Model Data component).
SPR shows the objects from the VUE file using global coordinates. If you plan to save
the 3D Model Data component documents to a VUE file using the Save as SmartPlant
Review File command, right-click the component and select Properties to check the Style
tab Coordinate System property setting. You want to make sure the Plant Monument
The Management Console, Folders, and Components


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 21

Coordinate Offset is passed correctly to SPR when creating the VUE file. The offset value
allows you to see the original coordinates relative to the new SPR coordinate system.
Revise the documents if publishing to SmartPlant Foundation.
Set properties Surface Styles and Aspects properties as needed on the 3D Model Data
documents. For more information, see Set surface styles and aspects for 3D model data
documents.
Update the documents using Update Now or Batch > Update on the 3D Model Data
component shortcut menu.
Save the documents to a predefined location for viewing in SmartPlant Review or publish the
documents to the registered SmartPlant Foundation plant.
For a more comprehensive list of tasks associated with the 3D Model Data Components, see 3D
Model Data Component Common Tasks.
Recommendations for Exporting to SmartPlant Review
The number of objects generated by a 3D Model Data component and exported successfully
to a SmartPlant Review file depends largely on the type of objects and your hardware
resources. We recommend that you limit each 3D Model Data component filter to
approximately 50,000 objects.
Monitor the error logs regularly for resource issues, even if the specified filter worked
initially. Users could add more objects to the model meeting the filter criteria.
SmartPlant Review (SPR) version 6.1.0.15 (or higher) allows you to open multiple VUE files
simultaneously. Refer to your SmartPlant Review documentation for more information.
When you open VUE and XML files in SPR for the first time, SPR builds a database
containing the tag information for the files. This process may take a significant amount of
time.
SmartPlant Review (SPR) version 6.2.0.29 (or higher) supports turning SmartPlant 3D
aspects on and off. All aspects are turned on by default in SPR. The SPRSchema.txt file can be
customized to add any user-defined aspects.
The 3D View Control used for viewing the published graphics in SmartPlant Markup
does not currently support turning aspects on and off.
Project Supervisor Setup
Your project supervisor should set up appropriate filters that define the objects to include in the
component documents when they are created.
You must install the SmartPlant Schema Component and the SmartPlant Client to use this
component. For more information, see the SmartPlant 3D Installation Guide available from Help
> Printable Guides.

Exporting 3D Model Graphics to MicroStation
You can export 3D model graphics directly to MicroStation. The actual export is not a
drawing file. It is an actual 3D file translated into MicroStation graphic types. While the workflow
is similar to that of regular volume drawings, there are some differences.
You create a MicroStation component with the same Add Component command. Once the
component is created, right-click and select Setup from the shortcut menu. The Setup command
allows you to define the MicroStation seed file and style to use in generating the component
documents.
The view style you specify for the component determines which model object graphics are
included in the component documents. The view style also specifies the layers on which the
graphics are placed when imported in MicroStation. The seed file selected determines the
MicroStation symbology used within the document.
Layers are referred to as Levels in MicroStation. Levels are defined by integers 0-63 and
must be entered in the Layers property in the view style properties dialog box.

Generic Module Folder
The Generic Module Folder component provides a way for you to run your custom VB
modules to create custom drawings. You set up the Generic Module Folder component to use your
custom VB module. For example, you might create a VB module to create MicroStation 3D
drawings, AutoCAD 3D drawings, or Electrical Isometric drawings. The Generic Module Folder
is simply a container for your VB modules. You create the component just like other components,
but when you perform Setup on the component, you specify a custom VB module.
The software builds the list of available VB modules from the Symbols share, specifically from
\Symbols\Drawings\Catalog\DwgTypeModules. You must store your VB module in this location
to have access to it when setting up the component.
CustomVB Module
The behavior of the component depends entirely on how the VB module is developed. Everything
is controlled by the VB module. When you right click the component, the VB module determines
which menu items are available. If the module has a command that creates documents, you see the
Create Documents command. If, for whatever reason, the module does not need documents, the
document-related commands do not appear on the shortcut menu. Other commands the VB
module might include are Rename, Delete, Refresh, and Print. For more information on general
commands available, see Shortcut Menus.
If the module supports publishing, the right-click menu includes the Publish command. This
command is available only if your model has been registered using the SmartPlant Registration
Wizard. For more information, see Publishing Documents.
For information on the interfaces used to create a custom VB drawing module, see the
Programmer's Guide. Contact your administrator or Intergraph Support if you need the
Programmer's Guide. You can find support information on our web site
http://support.intergraph.com (http://support.intergraph.com/).

Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 23



Composed Drawings
Composed drawings are orthographic drawings created in a 3D task, such as Common,
through the Drawing Console. The composed drawing component manages the composed
drawings you create. Composed drawings are flexible, allowing you to have views that are
managed by a drawing region and associate the views to volumes and other views.
In 3D modeling tasks such as Common, you can use the Tools > Drawing Console command to
create a composed drawing component and the drawings associated with it. In the Drawings and
Reports task, you can create the composed drawing component, but you must use the 3D modeling
tasks to associate the drawing to objects in the model.
1. In the Drawings and Reports task, use the Tools > Define Layout Style command to create
layout styles you need for your composed drawing regions, then use the layout styles when
you create your layout templates with the Tools > Edit Layout Template command.
2. Create a folder for the drawing component either in the Management Console, or go to a 3D
task and use Tools > Drawing Console to create the component.
3. In the 3D modeling task, use the Drawing Console to create new composed drawings.
Right-click the component and select New Drawing. For more information, see New
Drawing. You can also use Edit on the shortcut menu to view or modify existing composed
drawings. You can select Tools > Snapshot View to add snapshots of the model to composed
drawings. For additional information, see the Common User's Guide available from Help >
Printable Guides.
4. When the composed drawing is open in the SmartSketch Drawing Editor, you can add views,
associate views to volumes or other views, remove view associations, add dependent report
views, and modify the layout of the drawing sheet. For more information, see Create a new
composed drawing. For information on the Drawings Compose Toolbar, see "Working with
3D Task Drawings" in the SmartSketch Drawing Editor Help. After saving the drawing in
SmartSketch Drawing Editor, return to the Drawing Console to do additional editing, update
the drawing, and revise and publish the drawing. After the composed drawing is created, it is
just like any other drawing document and can be managed in the Drawings and Reports task.
For information on the 2D commands available for editing, see the SmartSketch Drawing
Editor Help.
If the drawing document you are looking at in the Detail View has a yellow icon (for
example: ), the drawing document is a version 6.1 legacy Snapshot drawing. You should use
the Tools > Convert Legacy Snapshots command to convert this document to a Composed
Drawing for use in the current version of the software. If you do not convert the legacy snapshot
drawing, you cannot perform edit operations on the drawing, including update, revise, and
publish. For more information, see Convert Legacy Snapshots.
Drawing Regions and Drawing Views
A region is a container that manages drawing views. The layout style associated with the region
dictates the order and placement of the managed drawing views. Drawing views are associated
with objects, volumes, or other drawing views. You place regions and views on a composed
The Management Console, Folders, and Components


24 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

drawing when it is open in SmartSketch Drawing Editor. For more information on placing regions
and views, see the SmartSketch Drawing Editor Help.

Regions and drawing views behave as follows:
You can create a drawing view outside a region, but this makes the drawing view an
"unmanaged view", meaning the properties of the region do not impact the drawing view.
However, if a view is inside a region or touching a region, the region manages the drawing
view and, when you update the drawing, the software associates the drawing view with the
region and updates it based on the applied region layout style.
If a region refuses to accept a drawing view (for example: the region is defined for three
views, and you are attempting to add a fourth view), the drawing view is added as an
unmanaged view, just outside and to the upper left of the region. If another region occupies
this space in the drawing area, the unmanaged view is placed as close to the original region as
possible.
If a drawing view "straddles" two or more regions, the region that contains more of the
drawing view manages it. If the drawing view equally straddles two or more regions, the
software uses the first drawing view point to measure distance and determine which region
manages the drawing view.
If a region contained a drawing view and the drawing view properties make it ineligible for
the region, the software removes the drawing view from the region automatically and places is
in the upper left of the drawing area, outside of other regions.
Layout Templates and Layout Styles
Composed drawings use layout templates and layout styles to assist you in creating reusable
drawings. The software combines layout templates with drawing borders to create composed
drawings. Layouts also use regions as containers to manage drawing views. You also define a
layout style associated with the region. The layout style dictates the order and placement of the
managed drawing views. For more information on defining layout styles, see Define Layout Style
The Management Console, Folders, and Components


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 25

Command (on page 107). For additional information on editing layout templates, see Edit Layout
Template Command (on page 113).
Drawing Borders
When you create a composed drawing in a 3D task, you specify a border template to use with the
drawing. After the drawing is created, you can switch the border associated with the drawing
using the Switch Border command on the shortcut menu of the drawing. For more information,
see Switch Border.
Drawings by Query Manager
The Drawings by Query Manager component works in conjunction with the Orthographic
Drawing by Query and Piping Isometric Drawing by Query components. The Drawings by Query
Manager provides the filter that specifies the "where" side of the query. It tells the query "where"
to look for the objects specified by the component "what" filter.
After you have set up the Drawings by Query Manager, you are ready to start creating drawings
with either an Orthographic Drawing by Query and Piping Isometric by Query components.
The Drawings by Query Manager uses the normal filter to specify "where" to look for the objects
included in the drawing. You do not use an asking filter with the Drawings by Query Manager.
The Drawings by Query Manager component is available by running the New command from the
shortcut menu of a folder in the Console hierarchy.
It is best to store the Drawings by Query Manager in the same location as the other
components with which it works.
Drawings by Query Manager Shortcut Menu
Right click on the Drawings by Query Manager component to display the shortcut menu.
Run Query - Runs the query specified by the Drawings by Query Manager setup definition. If
you have not run the Drawings by Query Manager Setup command, this command is unavailable.
Copy - Copies the Drawings by Query Manager component. After you paste the copy to a
different location in the Console hierarchy, you can run Setup again as needed for the new
Drawings by Query Manager.
Delete - Deletes the Drawings by Query Manager component. It does not delete any of the
associated Drawings by Query components or documents.
Rename - Renames the component. It does not affect any of the associated Drawings by Query
components or documents.
Save Package - Allows you to save the Drawings by Query Manager and its definition as a
package to be reused in other folder locations in the hierarchy.
Setup - Specifies the Filter and Package to query for the Drawings by Query components.
Properties - Displays the Properties dialog box for the component.

Orthographic Drawings by Query
You can generate orthographic (volume) drawings using a filter-based query. The
Orthographic Drawing by Query component allows you to create drawings for many objects in the
model all in the same manner. This component does not require physical volumes in the model.
The software uses a filter-based query to collect the objects and document them automatically.
For example, Hanger drawings use parts that can be queried from the database. There are many of
them, and in most cases, they are documented the same way. Using the Orthographic Drawing by
Query component means you do not have to place hundreds of drawing volumes to document each
type of part or assembly.
The basic workflow for creating Orthographic Drawings by Query is as follows:
Create an Orthographic Drawing by Query component that specifies what you want to
document
Create a Query Manager that says where to look for the data
Run the filter-based query
Create the drawings
Update the drawings
Publish the drawings to a viewable graphic file; no physical data is published
Administrator Setup
Your administrator sets up appropriate templates to use with the Orthographic Drawings by Query
component. The administrator is also responsible for creating filters that define "what" and filters
that specify "where" in the model to look for the objects. The template and the "what" filter
information within the component are saved as a package.
Drawings by Query Manager
The Drawings by Query Manager uses the normal filter to specify "where" to look for the objects
included in the drawing. You do not use an asking filter with the Drawings by Query Manager.
For more information on the filters necessary for setting up a Drawings by Query component, see
Drawings by Query Filters.
Navigator Rules
The navigator rules for Orthographic Drawings by Query tell the software how to traverse
elements to be included in the range for the drawing view objects. The navigation rule can also
optionally return separate object collections, whose range is included in the 3D object range. If no
navigation rule is specified for a drawing view, the drawing object collection includes everything
in the 3D object range. The delivered rules are:
HngSupSimpleNavigator.dll - Specific to Hanger and Support objects. Returns the
HangersSupport objects, support components, supporting objects, supported objects, and the
design children (recursively). It also returns the control points on the HangerSupport objects
and support components.
HngSupRangeNavigator.dll - Same as HngSupSimpleNavigator.dll with design children
collection to extent of the HangerSupport range.
The Management Console, Folders, and Components


28 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

DrawingSpoolNavigator.dll - Specific to Spools. Returns the Spool, its connected parts, and
their features.
HngSupNoSupportingRange.dll - Same as HngSupRangeNavigator.dll, but without
supporting objects.
SystemRangeNavigator.dll - Specific to Equipment objects. Returns the Equipment objects,
as specified by the "what" filter. It also returns design hierarchy children of the Equipment,
including any Route objects that are children of the Equipment (Runs, Parts, and Features).
When you edit the template associated to an Orthographic Drawing by Query component, such as
the HgrSup3View package, you can set the navigation rule assigned to each drawing view.
Right-click the component or package and select Edit Template to open the drawing template in
SmartSketch Drawing Editor. Select and right- click a drawing view to display the Drawing View
Properties and set the navigator rule. For more information, see the SmartSketch Drawing Editor
Help.
Piping Isometric Drawings by Query
Isometric drawings communicate several important types of information to a pipe fabrication
workshop. This information includes pipe cut lengths, bend angles, and welds. You create
isometric drawing by associating a Piping Isometric Drawing by Query component to a Query
Manager. The Piping Isometric Drawing by Query component specifies the "what" portion of the
query, while the Query Manager specifies the "where".
The basic workflow for creating Piping Isometric Drawings by Query is as follows:
Create a Piping Isometric Drawing by Query component that specifies what you want to
document
Create a Drawings by Query Manager that specifies where to look for the data
Run the filter-based query
Create the drawings
Update the drawings, if necessary
Publish the drawings to a viewable graphic file; no physical data is published
Each Piping Isometric Drawing by Query component has an associated isometric style. The
delivered styles are Iso_Pipeline, Iso_Piperun, Iso_PenSpool, Iso_Spool, Iso_WBS, and
Iso_Stress. You can open the Isometric Style Options Browser from any of the isometric
drawing styles by right-clicking the drawing style in the Console and selecting Edit Options on
the shortcut menu. The browser allows you to set options for isometric drawing format and
content.
After creating the Piping Isometric Drawings, you can open them for viewing, editing, printing,
and publishing (if your model has been registered using the SmartPlant Registration Wizard). To
troubleshoot the drawings, you can use the View Data command to access part and reports
information and log files.
The Management Console, Folders, and Components


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 29

The software uses a third-party engine made by Alias, ISOGEN, to generate isometric drawings
from the three- dimensional model. The following illustration shows the process of creating the
drawings.

The application creates a piping component file (PCF), which is used along with the isometric
style information to create an intermediate data file (IDF). The ISOGEN engine then reads the
IDF and creates the isometric drawings.
Administrator Setup
Your administrator should setup appropriate isometric styles to use with the Piping Isometric
Drawings by Query component. The administrator is also responsible for creating filters that
define "what" and filters that specify "where" in the model to look for the objects. The template
and the "what" filter information within the component are saved as a package.
Drawings by Query Manager
The Drawings by Query Manager uses the filter to specify "where" to look for the objects included
in the drawing.
For more information on the filters necessary for setting up a Drawings by Query component, see
Drawings by Query Filters.
The Management Console, Folders, and Components


30 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

Spreadsheet Reports
The Spreadsheet Report component allows you to define report templates and create report
deliverables.
The software features a tabbed editor called the Report Template Editor that allows you to
create and modify report templates. Most of the delivered reports use a combination of filters and
SQL. The Report Template Editor includes an interface for entering database query syntax and
testing the results of a query as part of the report. The editor also features an Excel component in
which you can drag and drop attributes onto a worksheet. The default format of all reports is
Microsoft Excel format.
After you make changes to a template, you can test the template by using the Update
Document(s) or Update Now command. For more information on updating documents, see
Updating Documents.
There are several types of spreadsheet reports delivered with the software. They are defined and
described in the Reports.xls workbook. For more information on the workbook, see the Drawings
and Reports Reference Data Guide.

Microsoft Excel 2000 SP3 is the minimum supported version for the Drawings and Reports
task. Later versions are also supported.
With SmartPlant 3D, Excel 2007 is also supported. Excel 2007 has a new file format and
extension (.xlsx). However, the delivered report templates still use the old .xls extension. If
you create a report template with the .xlsx extension, only machines with Excel 2007 will be
able to handle (edit, update, or open) the report. If you attempt to open a .xlsx file with an older
version of Excel, an error message appears stating that the file is not compatible with the
version of Excel.
For users of Office XP, in Microsoft Excel under Tools > Macro > Security > Trusted
Publishers tab, check the Trust Access to Visual Basic Project option.
For users of Office 2007, click the Microsoft Office button to access Excel Option. Go to the
Trust Center category and select the Trust Center Settings button. Select the Macro
Settings category and check Trust access to the VBA project object model.
For more information about Office 2000, Office XP, Office 2007, and service packs, refer to

The Management Console, Folders, and Components


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 31

Search Folders
Search Folder allows you to search for documents based on common properties such as
out-of-date status, approval, or documents that have been published to a certain contract in
integrated environment. You can create a Search Folder component in any folder in the Console.
After running the query defined for a Search Folder, you can perform such tasks as Update or
Publish as if you were working from the actual owning component location for the documents.
The documents found by the Search Folder query are listed in the Detail View as if they existed
under the Search Folder component. You are able to interact with the Search Folder documents
just as if you were dealing with the "real" components that own the documents. Search folders can
also be used for reports.
The Search Folder Component is available by running the New command from the shortcut menu
of a folder in the Console hierarchy. Generally, you can create a Search Folder component under
any component in the Console that allows you to run New command.
Search Folder Shortcut Menu
Right click on the Search Folder component to display the Search Folder shortcut menu.
Run Query - Runs the query specified by the Search Folder setup definition. If you have not run
the Search Folder Setup command, this command is not available.
Setup - Specifies the query to run for the Search Folder. Selecting Setup for the Search Folder
does not perform the individual setups for any of the drawing by query documents found in the
Search Folder query and shown in the detail view.
Copy - Copies the Search Folder. It does not copy the associated documents shown in the detail
view area. The Search Folder setup information is saved with the copy. After you paste the copy to
a different location in the Console hierarchy, you can run Setup again as needed for the new
Search Folder.
Delete - Deletes the Search Folder. It does not delete any of the documents found in the associated
detail view.
Rename - Renames the Search Folder. It does not affect any of the documents found in the
associated detail view.
Properties - Displays the Configuration Properties for the document.
To change properties on the document, go the "owner" location of the document. The
Search Folder does not participate in any propagation of properties to its documents.
Save Package - Allows you to save the Search Folder and its definition as a package to be reused
in other folder location in the hierarchy.

After the search folder is placed in the console, it will follow the same localized naming
convention as a normal folder. For example: "New Search Folder", "New Search Folder (2)",
and so forth.
Unlike normal folders, you cannot create components beneath a Search Folder. This includes
Paste; however, you can Copy the Search Folder and paste it somewhere else in the
hierarchy.
The Management Console, Folders, and Components


32 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

The Search Folder does not participate in any commands executed from a higher node (for
example, Update, Refresh, and Publish). This prevents multiple actions being run on the
same documents.

Volume Drawings
The Volume Drawing component uses a template to create drawings. You can place a view on
the template and associate the view with a view style to control the output. To define the contents
of the view, you create a drawing volume in the model. Before you create these types of drawings,
an administrator should create or edit drawing view styles and templates for use with the
drawings. For example, you can place title block labels and reports on the templates to reflect your
project or company standards.
After you have your view styles and templates in place, you are ready to start creating drawings.
The volume drawings require that the changes occur within the drawing template.
The software allows you to place several views on a template each with independent scale. In the
Space Management task, you can place a volume, which is associated to a single or multiple
views. The volume you create in Space Management is associated with all the views you create
within a volume drawing template. Therefore, in a multiple view volume drawing, you can have
multiple views of the same volume, and each view specifies the style, scale, and orientation for the
volume associated with the view. If the volume you create is too big for a particular view at its
scale, the volume is clipped.
For example, if you place two views in a drawing template with the following property settings:
DrawingView1 - Size 6" x 6", Scale 1" = 1', and Orientation = Plan
DrawingView2 - Size 6" x 6", Scale 1" = 1', and Orientation = North.
You use the Place Volume By 2-Points command in the Space Management task from
coordinates (0,0,0) to (6,6,6). In this case, the volume is exactly the right size based on scale and
orientation. The generated drawing contains the complete contents of the volume.
However, if your volume was placed from (0,0,0) to (8,6,6), the volume is too big for the drawing
view on the template. The maximum volume size the view can accommodate is no more than 6
inches on each side. The software centers the volume in the drawing view, effectively giving you
the information from (1,0,0) to <7,6,6 in the output drawing.
The overall processing for volume drawings is:
Identify a drawing volume. This is a query of all the objects that have been created in the
database which reside inside the volume borders. The objects do not have to be visible or even
in the current workspace to be included.
When the drawing is created, the software checks the objects from the volume query against
the list of filters in the specified view style.
If an object in the volume matches one of the specified view style filters, the software applies
the rules set for the object filter. If the object does not match a filter, it is not included in the
drawing view.

The following conceptual graphic shows the workflow for creating volume drawings:

The software applies the view styles in a top-down manner. If an object finds its match in several
filters, the last one applied (the bottom-most style) overrides any preceding style rules.
When a drawing is updated, it can be published by right-clicking the document and selecting
Publish on the right- click menu. The document is published as a viewable graphic file; no
physical data is published. For more information, see Publishing Documents.

You can use Batch Management to manage your document batch processing. You can also use
Custom Command tool to set up special macro commands you use in your documents. Convert
Legacy Snapshots converts legacy version 6.1 Snapshot drawings to Composed drawings.
Define View Style Command (Tools Menu)
Defines drawing view and key plan styles for drawings and MicroStation 3D DGN documents.
This command displays the Define View Style dialog box, which lists the available styles.
Each drawing view and MicroStation 3D DGN document in the software has an associated view
style and can have a key plan style. A view style contains several rules for filtering, labeling, and
creating the graphics in the output document. The key plan style specifies the rules used to define
the appearance of the key plan associated to a drawing view.

Defining Filters for ViewStyles
You can set up the filters for styles by using the File > Define Workspace or Tools > Select by
Filter commands in any 3D task. One way to organize the drawing filters is by discipline, such as
Piping, Equipment, or Structure. The following example shows Equipment filters. You can also
define filters within the View Style Properties dialog box by selecting More in the Filter
dropdown.

Defining ViewStyles for Drawing Views
For orthographic drawings, you can create and edit view styles using the Tools > Define View
Style command. For piping isometric drawings, you can modify drawing output using the
Isometric Style Options Browser dialog box.
The software comes with default view styles for a number of drawing types. These view styles can
be used as delivered or copied and modified to suit your needs.
You can change the order of the rows on the View Style Properties dialog box by selecting a row
and then clicking the up and down arrows on the left side of the dialog box. The software applies
the graphic rules in a top- down manner. If an object finds its match in several filters, the last
graphic rule applied (the bottom-most style) overrides any preceding graphic rules. Label rules
and dimension rules accumulate.
Defining Styles for Key Plans
The Tools > Define View Style command also allows you to create and maintain styles for key
plans you place within a drawing. The key plan style uses an existing drawing view style to define
the appearance of the key plan. You can create three different types of key plan styles: One
Volume with Model View, Natural Volumes Only, and Normalized Volumes Only.
Within regard to the graphic rules specified as part of the view style properties, the
software honors only the last aspect applied.

View Style Properties Dialog Box
Defines view styles for orthographic drawings and MicroStation 3D DGN documents. You can
open this dialog box by clicking New or Properties on the Select View Style dialog box.
The software stores the view styles and rules as files in the Symbols share.
If you are editing the properties of an existing view style, the current properties are shown. If this
is a new view style, all the fields are empty.

View Style Name - Specifies the name of the view style. The view style name can have up to 128
characters. If you are creating a new view style, you need to type a new name.
We do not support special characters in the view style name (such as, $, #, =, /, or \).
Description - Describes the view style.
ViewStyle Settings
Lists graphic preparation rules and resolution settings for intersections between objects. This
section also lists tests and actions for the view style. Each row in the grid must contain a filter. If
all the tests are true in a row, then the software executes the actions in that row.
Filter Behavior - Specifies the content behavior for the objects returned by the selected filters
when a drawing view is created. The options are:
Filters determine which objects are processed (Volume) - Specifies that all objects inside
the volume run through the view style, regardless of workspace and show/hide settings. The
items that match a filter in the view style are shown in the drawing with the appropriate rules
applied. Items that do not match a filter are not included in the drawing.
Filters provide overrides to set of objects (Snapshot) - Indicates that a list of objects (that
is, a combination of the workspace and the show/hide settings at the time you created the
snapshot drawing volume) run through the view style. The items that match a filter in the view
style are shown in the drawing with the appropriate rules applied. Items that do not match a
filter are included in the drawing with a basic Visible Hidden Line (VHL) style applied.
Graphic Preparation Rules - Specifies or defines a graphic preparation rule. One rule may
contain several modules (.dll files). The module can replace the three-dimensional graphics shown
in the model workspace with other three-dimensional graphics for the drawing. For more
Tools Menu

information, see Create or Edit a Graphic Preparation Rule (on page 48). For more information
on the graphic rule files delivered with the product, see Custom Graphic Modules (on page 687).
Intersection Edges - Creates lines where surfaces intersect each other. At High Resolution, more
detail is shown in the drawing by creating lines between all intersecting surfaces. At Low
Resolution, less detail is shown by omitting the bspline properties. For example, changing from
Off to High Resolution would produce the following effect for your graphics:

Using High Resolution increases the drawing generation time.
Preserve Z Order - Maintains the three-dimensional order of resymbolized graphics. This setting
overrides the top-down ordering in the view style for the graphic rules. For example, pipe gaps
display according to their layering in the 3D model. A cleaner-looking drawing results if this
option is selected.

Filter Name - Specifies a filter in the current model. You can choose existing filters or define new
filters by selecting More in the dropdown. You can use CTRL+C to copy and CTRL+V to paste
filters from one cell to another.
Asking or parameterized filters are only supported when they are asking for a WBS
Project.
Primary Orientation - Orientation of the primary linear axis of an object with respect to the
drawing view. The primary linear axis is along the x-axis of the local coordinate system.
Secondary Orientation - Orientation of the secondary linear axis of an object with respect to the
drawing view. The secondary linear axis is along the y-axis of the local coordinate system.
Primary Orientation and Secondary Orientation use the same options:

Not shown Normal
1 Normal, toward you
2 Normal, away from you
Not shown Sloped
3 Sloped, toward you
4 Sloped, away from you

The Sloped, projects horizontal and Sloped, projects vertical options provide special
orientations for situations where the drawing needs to distinguish between a sloped pipe that
projects orthogonally on the sheet and those that project non-orthogonally on the sheet. You may,
for example, prefer orthogonally-projected pipe be dimensioned in the drawing with the pipes that
are parallel and orthogonal to the sheet. The following graphic shows examples of a 3D model
with pipe for both cases:

1 This pipe is sloped in the 3D space of the model, but
projects using the Sloped, projects horizontal
primary orientation. The view style specifies that the
dimensions for the pipe are handled the same as the
actual parallel, horizontal, and vertical pipe in the
view.
2 This pipe is sloped in the 3D space of the model, but
uses the Sloped primary orientation and does not
project horizontally or vertically. The view style
distinguishes between this pipe and pipe 1.
3 These pipes are parallel and horizontal or vertical to
the view, and use the Parallel, horizontal and
Parallel, vertical primary orientations.
Tools Menu


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 41

For dimensioning purposes in the drawing view, the Parallel, horizontal and Sloped, projects
horizontal pipes are part of the same dimensioning chain. The Sloped pipe is not included in the
dimensioning.

You can resymbolize the model graphics based on special orientation cases. For example,
you might want to represent piping items that are parallel to the sheet plane as single lines while
representing the items coming straight out of the sheet as special symbols.
Clipping - Lists the various clipping options. For example, you might want to put a cap on a pipe
that is clipped to the right of the sheet.
Use the Clipped option when testing for objects that are clipped by one of the sides (Top, Bottom,
Right, or Left) of the volume. Dimensioning pipe that is clipped by the volume can take advantage
of this option setting.
Use the Not Clipped option to test for objects that are not clipped at all.
The Clipped and Not Clipped options ignore front and back clipping.
The following picture illustrates the various clipping options - Left, Right, Front, Back, Top,
and Bottom.

Apply Grid Labels to Elevation and Section Views
The following procedure describes how to apply grid labels to elevation and section views on
drawings. Custom rules are required along with filters for Grid Plane objects.
The example workflow uses the GridLinesDrawingWrapperEntity.dll custom rule to resymbolize
the grid plane as a set of lines. The lines draw at all perpendicular plane locations and extend along
the elevation plane from (lowest Z-1)m to (highest Z+1)m of the coordinate system to which the
grid plane belongs. For example, if the coordinate system has X=0,10,20, Y=0,5,10 and EL=0,10,
then for the grid plane at X=0, there will be three lines:
Y=0 from Z-1 to Z+11
Y=5 from Z-1 to Z+11
Y=10 from Z-1 to Z+11
Check for the Required Filters
If the catalog you are using does not have filters for Grid Plane Elevation and Sections, you need
to create them. You need one for "Elevations" looking North/South and another for "Sections"
looking East/West.
Check the Catalog for the filters. If you are using the delivered default filters in version 6.1
or later, these two filters are delivered under Catalog Filters > SP3D Object Filters > Grid
Systems.

Create the Required Filters
If the Grid Plane Elevation and Sections filters do not exist, you can create them. For more
information on creating filters, see the Common User's Guide available from Help > Printable
Guides.

The example workflow above uses columns and beams to give the results of the view style
application and meaning. The row referencing Grid Plane Elevations is the only required row. In a
drawing using the new view style, the Grid Planes are blue based on the settings from the view
style:


Some modeling situations have intersections that cause unwanted Grid Planes to appear and
be labeled. You may need to edit the drawing document and delete unwanted labels. Be sure
to save changes to make to the drawing document so that subsequent updates are remembered.
Use the procedure above to create separate view styles for Elevation and Section views. You
can then create Elevation and Section view drawing type packages using the appropriate view
styles. For more information, see Save Package Command.

Us e Bubble Labels in Drawings
You can use bubble labels to identify objects in a drawing view by the Item Numbers shown in a
report view. The drawing view style must identify a bubble label for the objects you wanted
labeled with the Item Numbers. The filter in the following view style example looks for Structure
objects and applies the HngSup Side_Reference_Circle_CA_L bubble label:

The drawing document must have a drawing view that is associated to a report view. The bubble
label looks for the Item Number field in the report to label the objects in the associated drawing
view. For example, you can use the delivered HgrSup3View package to create drawings that use
a bubble label to identify the part of a support object. The Item Numbers for each support part are
listed in the report shown on the drawing.

Tools Menu


76 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

The bubble labels applied to the drawing view are generated from the Item Number values in the
report.

You can also place bubble labels manually using the Manual Place Label command when a
drawing is open in SmartSketch Drawing Editor. You must still have a drawing view associated to
a report before using the bubble label. For more information on placing manual labels, see Place a
Manual Label on a Drawing.
Label XML definition is discussed further in the SmartPlant 3D/SmartMarine 3D
Programmer's Guide under Label Templates and Rules (XML) > XML Tag Reference. When
creating new bubble labels, see <content> XML tag definitions to find the value of the

As s ign Drawing Objects to Specific Layers
Layers provide a way to control the display of elements on a drawing sheet in SmartSketch
Drawing Editor. There are three different places in drawings that affect the layer settings. The
label templates folder, dimension templates folder, and the graphic rule interface inside the
software.
By default, all objects in a drawing reside in the default view layer.
To alter which layer the labels appear, see Modify the Label Template Layer (on page 78).
To alter which layer the dimensions appear, see Modify the Dimension Template Layer (on
page 77).
To alter which layer the graphical objects appear, you must modify the Layer field in the
Graphic Rule - VHL Dialog Box (on page 87), Graphic Rule - Line Dialog Box (on page 90),
or Graphic Rule - Symbol Dialog Box (on page 95).
The settings listed above determine which objects from certain templates appear in non-default
layers in the drawing view. As a drawings administrator, you may want to pre-define layers in the
delivered view template for ease of use and export. For more information and an example
workflow, see Pre-Define Layers in Delivered View Template in the SmartSketch Drawing Editor
Help.

Symbols in Orthographic Drawings
You can use symbols as part of the view style for your orthographic drawings. The symbols can
appear as part of the drawing view, replacing graphic objects to simplify drawing output. You can
also place symbols on a drawing as a label in paper space.
Using Tools > Define View Style, you define symbols through the properties on the view style.
When defined as part of a graphic rule in the view style, the symbol takes the place of an object
included in the drawing view. Depending on how you created the symbol, the symbol may scale to
match the drawing view contents. For more information, see Graphic Rule - Symbol Dialog Box
(on page 95).
If you are using a label to place a symbol in the paper space of the drawing, the symbol will not
scale. For more information, see Label Rules (on page 98).

View Style Rules
View styles consist of tests and actions. One of the tests must be a filter, and the actions are rules
that control the drawing results. Each rule is an XML file, which is used as an input to the view
style XML file. The rule XML files are located on the Symbols share in the
\Drawings\Catalog\Rules folder.
Graphic Rules
Graphic rules control the representation of the model graphics on drawings. For example, you can
represent pipe runs as single lines while representing equipment as control point symbols. You
can also resymbolize structural members as single lines with detailed widgets placed along the
lines. To specify the resymbolization, you create a custom symbol and incorporate the symbol into
a graphic rule for a view style. For more information, see Graphic Rules (on page 83).
Label Rules
Label rules control automatic label placement on drawings. For more information, see Label Rules
(on page 98).
Before creating a new label rule, you must first create the label query using the Define Label
command in the Catalog task.
Dimension Rules
Dimension rules control the placement of dimensions while dimension styles control the
appearance, including the units, of dimensions on orthographic drawings. You can specify the
granularity, offsets, style, text size, and object types for the dimensions. For more information on
working with dimensions, see Dimensions.
ViewRules
The view rules use properties to define how objects are associated to a drawing view. For more
information, see View Rules (on page 101).
Matchline Rules
The matchline rule uses labels to specify the drawing extents and the names of adjoining
drawings. For more information, see Matchline Rules (on page 103).

North ArrowRules
The north arrow rule uses a label to specify the direction toward north on drawings. For more
information, see North Arrow Rules (on page 104).
The drawing dimension and label rules are discussed further in the SmartPlant
3D/SmartMarine 3D Programmer's Guide under Extending the Capabilities of the Software.

Graphic Rules
Graphic rules control the representation of the model graphics on drawings. Each filter in the view
style can have its own graphic rule. For example, you can represent pipe runs as single lines while
representing equipment as control point symbols. You can also resymbolize structural members as
single lines with detailed widgets placed along the lines.
You specify graphic rules when you edit an existing view style or create a new view style with the
Tools > Define View Style command. In the Graphic Rule dropdown on the View Style
Properties dialog box, select More to display the Select Graphic Rule dialog box.

Graphic Rule - VHL Dialog Box
Sets options for a specific Visible/Hidden Lines (VHL) graphic rule. The VHL graphic rules
create a "wireframe" representation of objects, where just the outline of the object is drawn.

Rule Name - Specifies the name of the graphic rule. The rule name can be up to 128 characters
long.
Description - Describes the rule.
Aspect - Provides a dropdown list of available aspects so they can be resymbolized
independently. For example, you may have pipes that use an insulation aspect, and you want both
the pipe and its insulation symbolized uniquely on the drawing. You can use this property on the
VHL graphics to resymbolize both the pipe and its insulation. For more information, see Apply
Symbology to Graphic Object Aspects (on page 66).
Show aspect - Specifies that you want to show the aspect symbology for the selected objects
within the drawing. Only the aspects for which this checkbox is checked are shown in the
generated drawings.
Graphic Module - Specifies a module (.dll file) that allows you to customize the graphics
included in your graphic rule. For more information, see Custom Graphic Modules (on page 687).
For orthographic drawings, this module affects only those items that meet the criteria of
the filter on the selected row of the table in the View Style Properties dialog box. To apply a
module to all items in the view style, choose a Graphic Preparation Rule on the View Style
Properties dialog box.
Visible Line Style - Specifies the line style for visible edges of objects.
Hidden Line Style - Specifies the line style for edges of an object hidden by the surface of other
objects. The line style is shown as dashed red in the example below.

Tools Menu


88 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

Hidden By Self Line Style - Specifies the line style for edges of an object that are hidden by the
surface of the same object. The line style is shown as dashed red in the example below.

Occluded Line Style - Specifies a line style for edges of an object that are aligned with and
completely hidden by edges of the same or another object. For example, you may use this style
when you have two objects that are aligned but at different elevations. Occluded lines are drawn,
but are frequently not visible because the visible line style dominates. The line style is shown as
dashed red behind the solid black visible line in the example below.

Occluded lines are drawn, but are frequently not visible because the visible line style
dominates.
Layer - Indicates the drawing layer (or level, if saving to a MicroStation file) on which the
graphic is placed. For example, you would type LinesAndSymbols in the value field to place
your VHL graphics on the LinesAndSymbols layer of your drawing. If the layer does not already
exist in the template you are using to create drawings, the software creates the layer automatically.
For graphic rules used in the conversion to MicroStation files, the software only
recognizes whole numbers between 1 and 63, inclusive, in the Layer field. Other values are
ignored and the object is placed on level 1 in the DGN file.
Visible Fill Style - Specifies the fill style for visible surfaces of objects within the clipped area of
the view. Every face of every instance of the objects matching the applied filter in the view style
will have the selected fill style. For an example workflow showing how fill styles can be applied,
see Apply a Visible Fill Style to a Drawing (on page 55). In the following graphic, everything that
is a slab (everything except the two barrels and the wall piece) has a Hexagon fill style applied.

Tools Menu


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 89

Clipped Solid Fill Style - Specifies the fill style for clipped faces of objects that match the applied
filter in the view style. For more information, see Apply a Clipped Solid Fill Style to a Drawing
(on page 59). For example, the following graphic shows where a clipped wall surface is filled with
a Honeycomb fill style, while the underlying slab surfaces (also clipped) are not filled.

Make Clipped Solid Monolithic - Specifies, when set to Yes, that all solid objects assigned with
this graphic rule are based on the view style tests they passed (Filter, Orientation, Clipping) and all
of the objects in each group are merged into a transient object. The software finds the intersection
body or contour of the transient object with the drawing volume. Only the intersection contour is
drawn and filled on the top of the constructing objects, masking out their common internal edges.
For more information, see Use the Make Clipped Solid Monolithic Option (on page 72).
Aspect (Multi-Select) - Specifies the envelope around the objects for VHL processing. Examples
are maintenance or insulation envelopes. You can select multiple aspects by holding the CTRL or
SHIFT keys. This setting is currently not supported.
Show Centerline - Specifies whether the centerline appears in addition to the 3D graphics. If you
reset this property to No, the Centerline Visible Line Style and Centerline Hidden Line Style
boxes display <Not Drawn>.
Centerline Visible Line Style - Specifies the line style for a visible centerline.
Centerline Hidden Line Style - Specifies the line style for a hidden centerline.
Clipping - Indicates whether or not the graphics are clipped within the drawing. For example, in
plan views, certain objects such as stairs or ladders are best represented unclipped by the drawing
volume. You would specify a filter row in the view style for stairs or ladders and set this option to
unclipped to achieve the desired graphic representation.
Make Transparent - Specifies how transparency is applied to an aspect:
Tools Menu


90 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

No - The aspect will not be transparent.

For all objects in view - Full transparency. The aspect of the object is transparent for all other
objects and all aspects of the same object (that is, it does not hide other objects or aspects of
the same object).

For other aspects of same objects - Relative transparency between objects. The aspect of the
object is transparent only for other aspects of the same object (that is, the given aspect does
not hide other aspects for the same object, but hides other objects).

In orthographic view styles, the Make Transparent option is especially useful when you need to
show objects beneath another object. For an example workflow, see Apply Transparency to an
Orthographic View Style (on page 62).

All of the line styles in the pull down lists are found in the Styles.sha file, located in the
Symbols share in the [Reference Data Product

Label Rules
Label rules control the appearance of annotation labels as well as their automatic placement on
drawings. For example, you can create label rules that place labels with or without borders and
leader lines. You can even specify that the labels find "clear space" on the drawing, as shown in
the graphic.

You can use these rules for many purposes. The delivered sample rules include several types of
rules, such as control point labels, grid line labels, name labels, name and part labels, and piping
labels.
The label rules are saved in the Symbols share in the \Drawings\Catalog\Rules\LabelRules folder.
The rules have corresponding templates and symbols under \Drawings\Catalog\Labels\Templates.
For more information on the delivered label rules, see Label Rules (on page 549).
If you choose to relocate or reorganize the labels folder structure, you need to edit each associated
Label Rule XML file. The label rules are located in the Symbols share in the
Tools Menu


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 99

\Drawings\Catalog\Rules\LabelRules folder. After each <name> tag of the XML file, enter the
correct relative path and name for the template files, as in the example below.
Delivered path

Modified path

Select Label Rule Dialog Box (on page 44)
Layering Labels
You can define the layer on which your annotation labels appear in the drawing by editing the
label rule template XML file. After the <posSettings> section of the XML file, add a
<labelLayerSettings> definition using the <labelLayer> tag, like the one shown in the example
below, that defines the layer on which you want the annotations placed:

If the layer does not already exist in the template you are using to create drawings, the software
creates the layer automatically.
Prioritizing Labels
In "Clearspace Labels", you can use the XML setting for Priority to dictate which label(s) in the
drawing have a higher chance of being placed at their preferred positions, as specified by the
Positioning module within the label XML template. When you create a drawing that uses a view
style with two or more "Clearspace Labels" defined, you can have multiple labels with different
Priority settings, and the level of Priority can impact which label is more likely to receive its
preferred position. For example, Label 1 and Label 2 have different Priority settings defined in
their respective XML templates. However, Label 1 takes its preferred position in the drawing
over Label 2 because the Priority is higher for Label 1. The lower numeric value for the Priority
means Label 1 is more likely to receive its preferred position.
Label 1

Tools Menu


100 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

Dimens ion Rules
In general, dimension rules control the placement of dimensions while dimension styles control
the appearance, including the units, of dimensions in orthographic drawings. However, dimension
styles and dimension rules interact in complex ways. There are two methods you can use to get
dimensions to appear in drawings. Automatic dimensioning and manual dimensioning place
dimensions in native format drawings.
For automatic dimensioning, the view style controls whether or not dimensions are placed. For
manual dimensioning, you edit an existing drawing and place dimensions manually.
The Save As command saves drawings from the database to files and presents additional
considerations about dimensions. The files created by the Save As command can be native format
or a foreign format such as MicroStation or AutoCAD. With the Save As command, the software
attempts to replicate dimensions as they are shown within a drawing.
Assigning dimension units is different for each method. For more information, see:
Automatic Dimensioning
Manual Dimensioning
Save As MicroStation or AutoCAD Format
Isometric drawings use the isometric options settings within their style to determine the
dimension appearance, placement, and units.

Matchline Rules
Matchline rules are used to label adjoining volumes on drawings.
The matchline rules (the standard rule delivered and any new rules you create) are saved in the
Symbols share in the \Drawings\Catalog\Rules\MatchlineRules folder. The rules have
corresponding templates and symbols under \Drawings\Catalog\Labels\Templates\Matchline. For
more information, you can open the rule and template XML files to view the comments in the
code.
Use the following steps to add matchline labels to a specific layer:
1. In the directory [Reference Data Product
Directory]\Symbols\Drawings\Catalog\Labels\Templates\Matchline, open the
Matchline_None_A.xml file.
2. Insert the following new lines of code just above the <!--Positioning Settings --> line
in the Matchline_None_A.xml file.
<labelLayerSettings>
<!--This option determines on which layer the label is placed-->
<labelLayer>MATCHLINE_LABELS</labelLayer>
</labelLayerSettings>
MATCHLINE_LABELS can be any name you want, including an existing layer. If the
layer name that you choose does not already exist, then it will be created.
Working with Volumes that Share a Common Surface
If you require matchline labels for drawings that share common surfaces like the graphic below,
all of the drawings should be part of the same component.

Orthographic Drawing by Query Components
Orthographic Drawing by Query components contain setup information plus template and style
definitions. You can create new components to generate orthographic (volume) drawings using a
filter-based query. Drawing by Query documents are not saved as part of the drawing component.
When you save a component as a package in the Drawings and Reports task, you specify the
folder where the package is saved. You can save the package on a single drawing or on an entire
Management Console folder. Packages are saved on the Symbols share in the
\Drawings\Catalog\Packages folder.
Delivered components are also located on the Symbols share in the \Drawings\Catalog\Packages
folder. When you add a new component to the Management Console in the Drawings and
Reports task, the Orthographic (by Query) tab of the Add Component dialog box shows the
available orthographic Drawings by Query components. You can also create your own tab when
you save your components.
There are two delivered orthographic drawing by query components that appear on the
Orthographic (by Query) tab:
HngSup3View (see "HngSup3View Package" on page 183)
Pipe Support Drawings (see "Pipe Support Drawings Package" on page 185)
For more information on adding drawing components to the Management Console, see the
Orthographic Drawings User's Guide.

Dimension Templates XML Overview
Dimension Settings
When using a template that applies dimensions to the drawings, you can customize the behavior
and appearance of the dimensions with the dimensionSettings section.
The maxDimOffset value determines the maximum linear paper space distance between
consecutive witness lines in linear distance dimensions.
<maxDimOffset>0.2</maxDimOffset>
The maxWitnessLength value determines the maximum paper space length of witness lines
in linear distance dimensions.
<maxWitnessLength>0.2</maxWitnessLength>
The overall option places an additional dimension over each dimension chain cluster
identified by the rule. A value of -1 will place an overall dimension, while 0 will not.
<overall>-1</overall>

The overallOffset option determines the offset for the overall dimension from the dimension
chain.
<overallOffset>0.005</overallOffset>

The granularity option determines how many attempts are made to place a dimension in clear
space. The setting options are 0 for Coarse, 1 for Medium, and 2 for Fine.
<granularity>0</granularity>
The perimeterOffset option determines the offset that margin dimensions should be offset
from the matchline. The DrawingGAMarginOnly module must be used for the geometric
analyzer. For more information on the DrawingGAMarginOnly module, see
DrawingGAMarginOnly (on page 738).
<perimeterOffset>0.055</perimeterOffset>
The priority option allows you to place a priority on particular rules in order to resolve
conflicts among multiple rules. The lower the value, the higher the priority. For example, 1 is
a higher priority than 3. Also, the label and dimension priorities are considered globally,
which means you can give preference to dimensions over labels, and so on.
<priority>1</priority>
Orthographic Drawings Reference Data


208 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

The horiz option determines whether horizontal dimensions are placed. A value of -1 will
place horizontal dimensions, while 0 will not.
<horiz>-1</horiz>

The vert option determines whether vertical dimensions are placed. A value of -1 will place
vertical dimensions, while 0 will not.
<vert>-1</vert>

If the value for keepTopOrBottomDup is 0, then only the top-most point of an aligned set of
points is considered for dimensioning. If the value is set to 1, then only the bottom-most point
of an aligned set of points is considered for dimensioning.
Orthographic Drawings Reference Data


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 209

Similarly, if the value for keepLeftOrRightDup is set to 0, then only the left-most point in a
horizontally aligned set of points is considered in dimensioning. If the value is set to 1, then
only the right-most point in horizontally aligned set of points is considered for dimensioning.
<keepTopOrBottomDup>1</keepTopOrBottomDup>
<keepLeftOrRightDup>1</keepLeftOrRightDup>
The align option determines whether similar linear distance dimension chains should attempt
alignment with each other if their projection angles match. A value of -1 will align the
dimensions, while 0 will not. The value must be 0 for absolute positioned dimensions.
<align>0</align>

The preserveTextOrientation value determines whether or not text is aligned or moved out
from the dimension line. The text obeys the text orientation setting in the dimension style
settings of the label template XML file if the preserveTextOrientation value is set to -1. The
text orientation value in the label template XML is Horizontal, Vertical, Parallel, or
Perpendicular. If the preserveTextOrientation value is set to 0, the dimension text is either
rotated appropriately to match the dimension line, or it is moved out from the line if there is
not enough clear space.
<preserveTextOrientation>-1</preserveTextOrientation>
The range value determines whether a separate transparent view volume is placed on the
outer region of the SmartFrame, similar to a picture frame. A range is placed if the value is set
to -1. If the range value is set to 0, a range is not placed.
<range>-1</range>
The rangeOffset value is only valid when the range value is set to -1, otherwise it is ignored.
When the range value is on, the rangeOffset value determines the size of the range from each
side of the SmartFrame. A rangeOffset value of 0.03 places a view volume that extends from
the edge of the SmartFrame sides into the rest of the SmartFrame by 3 centimeters. The space

The internalDimension value determines whether or not dimensions are placed inside the
internal dimension range (see graphic above). If the internalDimension value is set to -1, all
dimensions that are inside of the internal dimension range are placed within the internal
dimension range, and not outside the view. When using the internalDimension parameter, you
can specify any positioning module to use with the dimensions.
<internalDimension>-1</internalDimension>
The externalDimension value determines whether or not dimensions are placed inside the
external dimension range (see graphic above). If the externalDimension value is set to -1, all
dimensions that are inside of the external dimension range are placed within the external
dimension range area, and not outside the view. When using the externalDimension
parameter, you must use the DrawingDimMarginPos positioning module.
<externalDimension>-1</externalDimension>
The minimumDimension value determines a minimum dimension distance. If a dimension is
less than the specified distance, it is not placed in the drawing. If a dimension is less than the
specified distance, and is part of a dimension chain, it is absorbed into the larger dimension.
The surrounding dimension that absorbs the smaller dimension is determined by the direction
of the dimension. For vertical dimensions, the small dimension is absorbed by the larger
dimension below it. For horizontal dimensions, the small dimension is absorbed by the larger
dimension to the left.
<minimumDimension>0.3</minimumDimension>

The trimWitness value determines whether or not a dimension witness line extends into the
drawing view to the dimensioned object or stops at the drawing view. If the trimWitness value
is set to -1,the dimension witness lines are trimmed. If the value is set to 0, the dimension
witness lines continue into the drawing view to the dimensioned objects.

Orthographic and Key Plan View Styles
View styles define how objects are resymbolized within drawing and keyplan views in drawing
documents. In orthographic drawings, like composed drawings or orthographic drawing by query,
you can define both orthographic view styles and key plan view styles. You use Tools > Define
View Style in the Drawings and Reports task to manage and create view styles. For more
information, see the Orthographic Drawings User's Guide.
When you create a new orthographic or keyplan view style, it is saved to the Symbols share in the
\Drawings\Catalog\Rules\KeyPlan and \Drawings\Catalog\Rules\Orthographic folders.
The styles delivered with the product are specific to each type of drawing. For example, you
would use the Electrical Equipment Plan view style to create Electrical Equipment drawings. If
you open the XML definition file for the view style, you will see the specifications for the output
of the Electrical Equipment for the drawing documents you will create.
Similarly, if you use the Electrical Equipment Key Plan view style, you are setting the output
style for an Electrical Equipment key plan within your drawing document.

View Styles produce different results based on the filters and rules that are included. The filters
that are used, and the order they are used in, determine the output of the drawing view.
Below is an example of how a drawing view is created from the view style. In this example, the
Piping Plan view style illustrates the drawing creation process.
The last graphic rule in the viewstyle takes precedence.
The delivered view styles match the logical order found in the Select Filter object hierarchy. From
first to last, the view style rows follow the same hierarchy. For example, Piping Parts precedes
Pipes in the object filter hierarchy. Therefore, the view style includes the Piping Parts filters
before the Pipes filters because of the object hierarchy.
If a child filter is placed above a parent filter, the child filter is overwritten in the drawing. The
filters must follow the same logical order as the object filter hierarchy.
The following graphic compares the object hierarchy in the Select Filter dialog box to the Filters
in the View Style Properties dialog box.
Orthographic Drawings Reference Data


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 223



When inserting filters in the view style, be sure they match the order of the objects in the
Select Filter dialog box. For example, be sure to place Pipes filters under any existing Piping
Parts filters.
Examples
The following example is the default Piping Plan view style. The highlighted piping segment has
a 2 inch diameter.


Orthographic Drawings Reference Data


224 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

The following example is a modified Piping Plan view style. A row has been inserted beneath the
original Piping filters to resymbolize all pipes equal to or less than 2 inches as a single line.


The following example shows the order of the Piping filters in the modified view style. The filter
that resymbolizes all pipes that are less than or equal to 2 inches is last because it is further down
in the hierarchy.

Graphic Rule
This is an example of the graphic representation of a Column in a drawing.

Dimension Rule
Dimensions all vertical and horizontal columns. Columns are dimensioned as anchors, which
means they are only dimensioned when they are in close proximity to a group of dimensioned
objects. If a column is not close enough to a group of dimensioned objects in a particular quadrant,
it is not dimensioned. Also, if the column is inline with another column that is already
dimensioned, it is not dimensioned.
In the example below, notice how the top left column is not dimensioned because the bottom left
column is dimensioned. Also, the middle columns are not dimensioned because they line up with
the outer columns.

Orthographic Drawings Reference Data


274 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

Example


View Styles produce different results based on the filters and rules that are included. The filters
that are used, and the order they are used in, determine the output of the drawing view.
Below is an example of how a drawing view is created from the view style. In this example, the
Piping Plan view style illustrates the drawing creation process.
The last graphic rule in the viewstyle takes precedence.
The delivered view styles match the logical order found in the Select Filter object hierarchy. From
first to last, the view style rows follow the same hierarchy. For example, Piping Parts precedes
Pipes in the object filter hierarchy. Therefore, the view style includes the Piping Parts filters
before the Pipes filters because of the object hierarchy.
Orthographic Drawings Reference Data


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 275

If a child filter is placed above a parent filter, the child filter is overwritten in the drawing. The
filters must follow the same logical order as the object filter hierarchy.
The following graphic compares the object hierarchy in the Select Filter dialog box to the Filters
in the View Style Properties dialog box.


When inserting filters in the view style, be sure they match the order of the objects in the
Select Filter dialog box. For example, be sure to place Pipes filters under any existing Piping
Parts filters.
Examples
The following example is the default Piping Plan view style. The highlighted piping segment has
a 2 inch diameter.


Orthographic Drawings Reference Data


276 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

The following example is a modified Piping Plan view style. A row has been inserted beneath the
original Piping filters to resymbolize all pipes equal to or less than 2 inches as a single line.


The following example shows the order of the Piping filters in the modified view style. The filter
that resymbolizes all pipes that are less than or equal to 2 inches is last because it is further down
in the hierarchy.

Graphic Rule
This is an example of the graphic representation of a Column in a drawing.

Dimension Rule
Dimensions all vertical and horizontal columns. Columns are dimensioned as anchors, which
means they are only dimensioned when they are in close proximity to a group of dimensioned
objects. If a column is not close enough to a group of dimensioned objects in a particular quadrant,
it is not dimensioned. Also, if the column is inline with another column that is already
dimensioned, it is not dimensioned.
In the example below, notice how the top left column is not dimensioned because the bottom left
column is dimensioned. Also, the middle columns are not dimensioned because they line up with
the outer columns.

View Styles produce different results based on the filters and rules that are included. The filters
that are used, and the order they are used in, determine the output of the drawing view.
Below is an example of how a drawing view is created from the view style. In this example, the
Piping Plan view style illustrates the drawing creation process.
The last graphic rule in the viewstyle takes precedence.
The delivered view styles match the logical order found in the Select Filter object hierarchy. From
first to last, the view style rows follow the same hierarchy. For example, Piping Parts precedes
Pipes in the object filter hierarchy. Therefore, the view style includes the Piping Parts filters
before the Pipes filters because of the object hierarchy.
If a child filter is placed above a parent filter, the child filter is overwritten in the drawing. The
filters must follow the same logical order as the object filter hierarchy.
The following graphic compares the object hierarchy in the Select Filter dialog box to the Filters
in the View Style Properties dialog box.


Orthographic Drawings Reference Data


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 327

When inserting filters in the view style, be sure they match the order of the objects in the
Select Filter dialog box. For example, be sure to place Pipes filters under any existing Piping
Parts filters.
Examples
The following example is the default Piping Plan view style. The highlighted piping segment has
a 2 inch diameter.


The following example is a modified Piping Plan view style. A row has been inserted beneath the
original Piping filters to resymbolize all pipes equal to or less than 2 inches as a single line.


Orthographic Drawings Reference Data


328 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

The following example shows the order of the Piping filters in the modified view style. The filter
that resymbolizes all pipes that are less than or equal to 2 inches is last because it is further down
in the hierarchy.

Graphic Rule
This is an example of the graphic representation of a Column in a drawing.

Dimension Rule
Dimensions all vertical and horizontal columns. Columns are dimensioned as anchors, which
means they are only dimensioned when they are in close proximity to a group of dimensioned
objects. If a column is not close enough to a group of dimensioned objects in a particular quadrant,
it is not dimensioned. Also, if the column is inline with another column that is already
dimensioned, it is not dimensioned.
In the example below, notice how the top left column is not dimensioned because the bottom left
column is dimensioned. Also, the middle columns are not dimensioned because they line up with
the outer columns.

Label Rule
Every piece of equipment is labeled with a name label and a north-east coordinate label. The name
label is placed in the center of the equipment, unless there is an object already in the center, or if
there is not sufficient white space for the label. If the label cannot be placed on the center of the
object, it is placed with a jogged leader. The coordinate label is placed on the object origin, unless
there is insufficient space, in which case it will find the necessary white space. See the above
graphic for an example of the labels.

Graphic Rule

View Styles produce different results based on the filters and rules that are included. The filters
that are used, and the order they are used in, determine the output of the drawing view.
Below is an example of how a drawing view is created from the view style. In this example, the
Piping Plan view style illustrates the drawing creation process.
The last graphic rule in the viewstyle takes precedence.
The delivered view styles match the logical order found in the Select Filter object hierarchy. From
first to last, the view style rows follow the same hierarchy. For example, Piping Parts precedes
Pipes in the object filter hierarchy. Therefore, the view style includes the Piping Parts filters
before the Pipes filters because of the object hierarchy.
If a child filter is placed above a parent filter, the child filter is overwritten in the drawing. The
filters must follow the same logical order as the object filter hierarchy.
Orthographic Drawings Reference Data


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 363

The following graphic compares the object hierarchy in the Select Filter dialog box to the Filters
in the View Style Properties dialog box.


When inserting filters in the view style, be sure they match the order of the objects in the
Select Filter dialog box. For example, be sure to place Pipes filters under any existing Piping
Parts filters.
Examples
The following example is the default Piping Plan view style. The highlighted piping segment has
a 2 inch diameter.


Orthographic Drawings Reference Data


364 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

The following example is a modified Piping Plan view style. A row has been inserted beneath the
original Piping filters to resymbolize all pipes equal to or less than 2 inches as a single line.


The following example shows the order of the Piping filters in the modified view style. The filter
that resymbolizes all pipes that are less than or equal to 2 inches is last because it is further down
in the hierarchy.

Graphic Rule
This is an example of the graphic representation of a Column in a drawing.

Dimension Rule
Dimensions all vertical and horizontal columns. Columns are dimensioned as anchors, which
means they are only dimensioned when they are in close proximity to a group of dimensioned
objects. If a column is not close enough to a group of dimensioned objects in a particular quadrant,
it is not dimensioned. Also, if the column is inline with another column that is already
dimensioned, it is not dimensioned.

In the example below, notice how the top left column is not dimensioned because the bottom left
column is dimensioned. Also, the middle columns are not dimensioned because they line up with
the outer columns.
The left portion of this drawing has been cropped due to size constraints.

Label Rule
Each duct is labeled with the cross section size from the model.

Dimension Rule
Horizontal and vertical ducts with Parallel orientations (horizontal and vertical) are dimensioned
to each other. The dimensions are placed in white space on each side of the drawing. Horizontal
ducts are dimensioned vertically, and vertical ducts are dimensioned horizontally. When the
drawing updates, the duct dimensions also dimension to nearby columns, since the columns are
anchored.

View Styles produce different results based on the filters and rules that are included. The filters
that are used, and the order they are used in, determine the output of the drawing view.
Below is an example of how a drawing view is created from the view style. In this example, the
Piping Plan view style illustrates the drawing creation process.
The last graphic rule in the viewstyle takes precedence.
The delivered view styles match the logical order found in the Select Filter object hierarchy. From
first to last, the view style rows follow the same hierarchy. For example, Piping Parts precedes
Pipes in the object filter hierarchy. Therefore, the view style includes the Piping Parts filters
before the Pipes filters because of the object hierarchy.
If a child filter is placed above a parent filter, the child filter is overwritten in the drawing. The
filters must follow the same logical order as the object filter hierarchy.
The following graphic compares the object hierarchy in the Select Filter dialog box to the Filters
in the View Style Properties dialog box.
Orthographic Drawings Reference Data


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 411



When inserting filters in the view style, be sure they match the order of the objects in the
Select Filter dialog box. For example, be sure to place Pipes filters under any existing Piping
Parts filters.
Examples
The following example is the default Piping Plan view style. The highlighted piping segment has
a 2 inch diameter.


Orthographic Drawings Reference Data


412 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

The following example is a modified Piping Plan view style. A row has been inserted beneath the
original Piping filters to resymbolize all pipes equal to or less than 2 inches as a single line.


The following example shows the order of the Piping filters in the modified view style. The filter
that resymbolizes all pipes that are less than or equal to 2 inches is last because it is further down
in the hierarchy.

432 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

Dimension Rule
Dimensions all columns, pipes, and grid lines. Equipment parts are only dimensioned as anchors,
which means they are only dimensioned when they are in close proximity to a group of
dimensioned objects. If an equipment part is not close enough to a group of dimensioned objects
in a particular quadrant, it is not dimensioned.

Label Rule
The longest segment of each pipe run is labeled. If a pipe is clipped, it is labeled with a leader.
None of the piping components (except for the pipes) are labeled. For example, surface mounted
components and elbows are not labeled.
Graphic Rule
This is an example of the graphic representation of stairs in an elevation drawing.



Stairs that are partially included in a volume are not clipped. The entire stair object is included
in the drawing.
Stairs that appear in the looking direction are included in the drawing, even if the volume does
not include the stairs.
View Styles produce different results based on the filters and rules that are included. The filters
that are used, and the order they are used in, determine the output of the drawing view.
Below is an example of how a drawing view is created from the view style. In this example, the
Piping Plan view style illustrates the drawing creation process.
The last graphic rule in the viewstyle takes precedence.
The delivered view styles match the logical order found in the Select Filter object hierarchy. From
first to last, the view style rows follow the same hierarchy. For example, Piping Parts precedes
Orthographic Drawings Reference Data


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 441

Pipes in the object filter hierarchy. Therefore, the view style includes the Piping Parts filters
before the Pipes filters because of the object hierarchy.
If a child filter is placed above a parent filter, the child filter is overwritten in the drawing. The
filters must follow the same logical order as the object filter hierarchy.
The following graphic compares the object hierarchy in the Select Filter dialog box to the Filters
in the View Style Properties dialog box.


When inserting filters in the view style, be sure they match the order of the objects in the
Select Filter dialog box. For example, be sure to place Pipes filters under any existing Piping
Parts filters.
Examples
The following example is the default Piping Plan view style. The highlighted piping segment has
a 2 inch diameter.


Orthographic Drawings Reference Data


442 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

The following example is a modified Piping Plan view style. A row has been inserted beneath the
original Piping filters to resymbolize all pipes equal to or less than 2 inches as a single line.


The following example shows the order of the Piping filters in the modified view style. The filter
that resymbolizes all pipes that are less than or equal to 2 inches is last because it is further down
in the hierarchy.

Horizontal pipes are dimensioned vertically, and vertical pipes are dimensioned horizontally. For
example, see the above graphics.

Graphic Rule
This is an example of the graphic representation of piping parts in a drawing.

Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 473


Label Rule
The longest segment of each pipe run is labeled. If a pipe is clipped, it is labeled with a leader.
None of the piping components (except for the pipes) are labeled. For example, surface mounted
components and elbows are not labeled.




Graphic Rule
This is an example of the graphic representation of stairs in a drawing.


Stairs that are partially included in a volume are not clipped. The entire stair object is included
in the drawing.
Stairs that appear in the looking direction are included in the drawing, even if the volume does
not include the stairs.
Pipes that are clipped by a volume are labeled differently than other pipes and pipe parts that
appear inside the volume. Depending on the direction of the pipe and the Look Direction of the
view, a pipe is either labeled on the outside of the view with a leader, or it is resymbolized.
Clipped pipes that run perpendicular to the look direction are labeled with a jogged leader outside
of the drawing volume. Clipped pipes that are directly parallel to the look direction are
resymbolized.

Graphic Rule
Columns are resymbolized as single lines with widgets. The widget rule draws a portion of the
graphic column to show the shape, direction, and thickness. 30% of the column's length is drawn,
while 100% of the column's height is drawn. The remaining 70% of the column's length is
displayed as a single line.
The graphic portion of the column is drawn according to the cardinal point and in relation to the
single line representation of the column. The solid line is always centered, and the graphic portion
aligns accordingly. Also, the graphic representation begins at the origin of the column, not the
center of the column. For example, if a column was modeled from the ground up, the graphic
representation in the model would begin at the bottom of the single line representation.
Hidden lines are drawn with the Dashed style in order to display the orientation of the column.

View Styles produce different results based on the filters and rules that are included. The filters
that are used, and the order they are used in, determine the output of the drawing view.
Below is an example of how a drawing view is created from the view style. In this example, the
Piping Plan view style illustrates the drawing creation process.
The last graphic rule in the viewstyle takes precedence.
The delivered view styles match the logical order found in the Select Filter object hierarchy. From
first to last, the view style rows follow the same hierarchy. For example, Piping Parts precedes
Pipes in the object filter hierarchy. Therefore, the view style includes the Piping Parts filters
before the Pipes filters because of the object hierarchy.
If a child filter is placed above a parent filter, the child filter is overwritten in the drawing. The
filters must follow the same logical order as the object filter hierarchy.
Orthographic Drawings Reference Data


498 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

The following graphic compares the object hierarchy in the Select Filter dialog box to the Filters
in the View Style Properties dialog box.


When inserting filters in the view style, be sure they match the order of the objects in the
Select Filter dialog box. For example, be sure to place Pipes filters under any existing Piping
Parts filters.
Examples
The following example is the default Piping Plan view style. The highlighted piping segment has
a 2 inch diameter.


Orthographic Drawings Reference Data


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 499

The following example is a modified Piping Plan view style. A row has been inserted beneath the
original Piping filters to resymbolize all pipes equal to or less than 2 inches as a single line.


The following example shows the order of the Piping filters in the modified view style. The filter
that resymbolizes all pipes that are less than or equal to 2 inches is last because it is further down
in the hierarchy.

Graphic Rule
This is an example of the graphic representation of a Column in a drawing.

Dimension Rule
Vertical and horizontal dimensions are placed on all columns. The columns are used as anchors to
other dimension objects, but they are also dimensioned independently. The anchored dimensions
are included in the chains that include braces, beams, and equipment object dimensions. For an
example of column dimensions anchored with other dimensions, see the example below.

Orthographic Drawings Reference Data


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 507

There are two types of independent dimensions for the columns. First, the columns are
dimensioned to the surrounding columns, giving you a distance between each adjacent column.
Second, the overall distance between the chain of column dimensions is dimensioned. For an
example of the two independent dimension types, see the example below.

Key Plan View Styles
Key plan view styles are used to place key plan views on orthographic drawings. These drawings
show nearby and adjacent volumes in relation to the main view in the drawing, which is also
known as the focus element.
The key plan view style XML files are delivered in the Symbols share [Reference Data Product
Directory]Symbols\Drawings\Catalog\Rules\KeyPlan folder.
There are several requirements for key plan drawings to function properly. For a list of
these requirements, see Key Plan Drawing Requirements.
Civil Key Plan
Refers to the orthographic Civil Key Plan view style. For more information, see Civil Key Plan
View Style (on page 225).
Default
The default key plan view style displays the focus element with a thick line style, and displays the
surrounding adjacent elements with a normal view style. The focus element is labeled with the
volume name from the model. See the following graphic for an example.

Drawing Rules for View Styles
Drawing rules are another way you can define the output for your drawings. You define the rules
used by your orthographic view style when you use Tools > Define View Style in the Drawing
and Reports task. The software includes rules for specifying graphic resymbolization, labeling,
and dimensioning. All of these are part of the view style definition. For more information, see the
Orthographic Drawings User's Guide.
When you define a view style, you filter or test for different types of objects within the model. For
each filter, you can define rules that further specify how the objects are resymbolized, labeled, or
dimensioned.
The delivered rules are located in the Symbols share in the [Product Reference Data
Directory]\Drawings\Catalog\Rules folder:
DimensionRules - Sets the style of dimensioning used within a drawing document.
GraphicRules - Specifies the graphic output for the drawing objects. Objects can be displayed as
Vector Hidden Line (VHL) or resymbolized.
LabelRules - Determines the labeling to be applied to objects.
MatchlineRules - Labels adjoining volumes on drawings.
NorthArrowRules - Places a label that points toward Global North on drawings.
ViewRules - Specifies how detail and section view frames will appear in the drawing document.

View Label Rules in Drawings
View label rules control the appearance of view labels, their placement on views, and the
appearance and types of annotations within the views. You assign view labels as part of the
drawing view style with the Tools > Define View Style command in the Drawings and Reports
task.
View label rules are delivered in the Symbols share in the [Reference Data Product
Directory]\Drawings\Catalog\Rules\ViewRules folder.
The view labels also use:
Templates delivered in the Symbols share in the [Reference Data Product
Directory]\Drawings\Catalog\Labels\Templates\Views folder.
View naming rules.
Section mark rules.
The following view label rules are delivered with the software:
Type1
Displays the view direction, and view scale. For example:
Looking North
SCALE: Fit To Scale
The Type1 view rule uses the SectionBubbleArrow for all cutting plane section mark arrows.


Type2
Displays the view direction, and view scale. For example:
Looking North
SCALE: Fit To Scale
The Type2 view rule uses the Type2_Arrow for all cutting plane section mark arrows.

For more information on creating your own cutting plane section marks, see Create a Custom
Cutting Plane Symbol (on page 79).

Layout Style Rules in Orthographic Drawings
Layout style rules define how the number of views per region in an orthographic drawing
document. You use the Tools > Define Layout Template command in the Drawings and Reports
task to create new layout styles. You also specify layout styles when you place regions using the
Place Region command in SmartSketch Drawing Editor. For more information on using these
commands, see the Orthographic Drawings User's Guide and the SmartSketch Drawing Editor
Help respectively.
The software populates the views within a region from bottom-to-top and left-to-right across the
region.

Layout styles use a processor DLL that defines how the rule behaves within the software. For
orthographic drawings, the delivered DefaultLayoutProcessor.dll is the only processor used.
This processor allows you to choose a predefined arrangement of views to be aligned and
managed inside a region. Some of the delivered examples are 4 views arranged in a checkerboard
fashion, 4 tall views aligned vertically, and 4 wide views aligned horizontally. other delivered
examples increase the number of views, using similar arrangements. If you define the region to
have a layout style for 4 views but you attempt to place 6 views within the region, the software
moves the extra drawing views to an unmanaged area of the drawing sheet, outside the region.

Section View Orientation Rules in Orthographic
Drawings
SmartPlant 3D Section ViewOrientation Behavior
The software automatically determines the "up" direction for section views. In most cases, the up
direction is "up," or +Z. In cases where using +Z is impossible (for example, if the section view
direction is Looking Plan or Looking Up.), the software orients the view to the North direction.
The following examples outline common section view orientations:

The delivered isometric drawing styles are Iso_Pipeline, Iso_Piperun, Iso_Spool,
Iso_PenSpool, Iso_WBS, and Iso_Stress. Each delivered style has an associated XML file and
IGR file. The XML file contains the isometric options, and the IGR file is the backing sheet for the
isometric drawing. They are delivered on the Symbols share in the \PmfgIsoStyleData folder.
Iso_Pipeline - Creates a final isometric drawing used to construct the plant. This style creates
one drawing per pipeline system. This drawing style is an example of a potential
configuration for a fabrication isometric. It includes a material list.
Iso_Piperun - Creates a draft of an isometric drawing for checking against project guidelines.
This style creates one drawing per pipe run. This drawing style is an example of a drawing
configuration used for checking pipeline designs prior to extracting the fabrication isometric.
Iso_Spool - Creates an isometric drawing used in the fabrication shop to manufacture the
pipe. This style uses piping spools. You can create spools using the Generate Spools
command in the Piping task. Like the final isometric style, it includes a material list.
Iso_PenSpool - Creates an isometric drawing that documents penetration spools that consist
of a penetration plate and several piping spools. This style creates one drawing per penetration
spools. You can create penetration spools using the Create Penetration Spools command in
the Piping task.
Iso_WBS - Creates an isometric drawing that documents a collection of parts that are
assigned to one Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) item of the type Group Iso Drawing.
This style creates one drawing per WBS item.
Iso_Stress - Creates a Piping Component File (PCF) that can be output to the CAESAR II
pipe stress analysis software. No drawing is created. To save the PCF file, use the Save As
command. For more information, see Create a piping component file (PCF).
You can create other isometric drawing styles, such as a Bid style for construction contractors to
bid on a project.

in the BulkLoadIsoKeys.xls file on the PipeMfgRules sheet if you want to save isometric
drawings to a different location.
1. Log on to the application administrator computer using an account that has database
ownership privileges.
2. In Windows Explorer, create folders in which you want to store isometric drawings.

Create a folder on the server named PipingMfgDrawings.
Within the PipingMfgDrawings folder, create five folders for the different isometric drawing
types. Name the folders Iso_Pipeline, Iso_Piperun, Iso_Spool, Iso_PenSpool, Iso_WBS,
and Iso_Stress.
1. In Windows Explorer, create sharing permissions on the root folder. In this example,
PipingMfgDrawings should be shared.
To share a folder, select the folder in Windows Explorer. Then click File > Sharing and
select Shared As.
2. Back up your Excel workbooks before you begin to modify them.

5. In the OutputIsoDrawingLocation column, edit the paths to show the Uniform Naming
Convention (UNC) locations for the isometric drawing types on the server. For example, if the
node name of the server is smith and you want to store the Iso_Pipeline isometric drawings in
the Iso_Pipeline folder that you created earlier, type
\\smith\PipingMfgDrawings\Iso_Pipeline in the row for the Iso_Pipeline isometric type.
Repeat this step for the other isometric drawing styles.
6. In the IsoBackingSheet and IngrOption columns, edit the paths to show the UNC locations
of these files on the server. The server setup installs these files by default at [Reference Data
Product Directory]\Symbols\PmfgIsoStyleData.
Repeat this procedure for the other rows and columns.
7. In the Head column under Start, mark the beginning of each modified row with M.
8. Click File > Save to store the modifications.
9. Run the Bulkload utility in the Add/Modify/Delete mode to modify the reference data. For
more information about bulkloading, see the SmartPlant 3D Reference Data Guide accessible
from the Help > Printable Guides command.

If you want to modify the isometric paths again, you must edit the workbook and bulk load.
The left-most column (column A) of the sheet specifies the bulkload action taken with regard
to the row. For example, an A in the column indicates the drawing volume part class is being
added; the letter D specifies the class is deleted; the letter M indicates the class is modified. A
! symbol specifies that the row is ignored during bulkloading.

The reports reference data includes a list of the templates associated with reporting in the
software. These templates include label templates, query templates, query parameters templates,
formatting templates, and reports templates.
In the Catalog task, you can view a hierarchy of folders containing the report and label templates
and components.

The hierarchy is derived from the Reports.xls workbook that contains the report reference data.
The Reports\Components category includes the baseline, display, formatting, and query
templates. The Reports\Templates category groups the report templates by discipline.
The Labels category contains the templates for catalog labels, isometric drawing labels, Icarus
cost-estimation labels, and ToolTip labels. For more information on drawing labels, see Label
Rules (on page 549).

The report and label templates are available in the \CatalogData\Symbols\Drawings\Catalog
folders on the application server.

Report Sheet
The Report sheet in the Reports.xls workbook defines the locations for the report and label
templates.
The upper portion of this sheet lists the valid report and label templates and descriptions. This
portion is commented out with ! characters at the beginning of each row, so the Bulkload utility
does not read this information.
The left-most column (column A) of the sheet specifies the bulkload action taken with regard to
the row. For example, an A in the column indicates the report or label template is being added; the
letter D specifies the template is deleted; the letter M indicates the template is modified. A !
symbol specifies that the row is ignored during bulkloading.
Name (Column B) - Specifies the report or label template name. This name appears in the XML
for the template. This name must match the name specified on the R-Hierarchy sheet.
Type (Column C) - Specifies the type of template. The types include label templates, query
templates, query parameters templates, report templates, and formatting templates.
Description (Column D) - Provides some descriptive text about the template.
Filename (Column E) - Shows the path to the template.

while the Label Template section has a green background.

For more information on modifying the Reports.xml workbook, refer to the SmartPlant 3D
Reference Data Guide available from the Help > Printable Guides command in the software.
All files must be located in the correct Symbols share for bulkloading to be successful.
R-Hierarchy Sheet
The R-Hierarchy sheet maps parent and child relationships between folders and files in the
Catalog Reports and Catalog Labels hierarchies.
The folder names are object names, not names that appear on the user interface. These names must
be unique in the Catalog. Also, the names must match between the Report sheet and the
R-Hierarchy sheet.
A parent folder can have any number of children. However, a child folder can only have one
parent. A familiar example is the hierarchy of folders in Windows Explorer.
The left-most column (column A) of the sheet specifies the bulkload action taken with regard to
the row. For example, an A in the column indicates the report template is being added; the letter D
specifies the template is deleted; the letter M indicates the report template is modified. A ! symbol
specifies that the row is ignored during bulkloading.
You should copy the Reports.xls spreadsheet to another name before bulkloading. Once
bulkloading occurs, the values in Column A will reset.
RelationSource - Specifies the parent object names. For report templates, the background is
yellow. For label templates, the background is green.
RelationDestination - Specifies the child object names.
The R-Hierarchy sheet specifies relationships between all parent and children folders,
except part classes and the classification folders right above the part classes in the hierarchy.
These folders are related on the R-ClassNodeDescribes sheet. For more information, refer to the

Create a filter-based report that uses the DrawingMAP
table
It is often required to report the name of a drawing that contains equipment in an equipment
location report. The following example query returns the names of all equipment and the drawings
they are contained in. This query may be used in a SQL report.
select
j4.Itemname 'Equipment',j3.Itemname 'Drawing' from
XDrawingMAP X1
join XSheetHasViews x2 on X1.oidorigin = x2.oidorigin
join JDDwgSheet j2 on j2.oid = x2.oiddestination
join JNamedItem j3 on j3.oid = j2.oid
join JNamedItem j4 on j4.oid = X1.oiddestination
where j4.OID in (select oid from JSmartEquipment)
order by Equipment, Drawing

Normally, tables in the databases have corresponding views that begin with "J," which
means the expected view name for DRAWINGDrawingMAP would be JDrawingMAP. However,
the correct view name is XDrawingMAP.

Label rules control the appearance of annotation labels as well as their automatic placement on
drawings. For example, you can create label rules that place labels with or without borders and
leader lines. You can even specify that the labels find "clear space" on the drawing, as shown in
the graphic.

You assign label rules as part of the drawing view style with the Tools > Define View Style
command in the Drawings and Reports task. You can use these rules for many purposes. The
delivered sample rules include several types of rules, such as control point labels, grid line labels,
name labels, name and part labels, and piping labels. For more information, see the Orthographic
Drawings User's Guide.
Label rules are saved in theSymbols share in the \Drawings\Catalog\Rules\LabelRules folder. The
rules have corresponding templates and symbols under \Drawings\Catalog\Labels\Templates.
Most labels are managed by and bulkloaded from the Reports.xls file. This workbook contains
the reference data for labels. For additional information, see Reports Reference Data (on page
545). For more information, see "Label Rules in Marine Structure Drawings" in the
Orthographic Drawings User's Guide.
If you choose to relocate or reorganize the labels folder structure, you need to edit each associated
Label Rule XML file. The label rules are located in the Symbols share in the

\Drawings\Catalog\Rules\LabelRules folder. After each <name> tag of the XML file, enter the
correct relative path and name for the template files, as in the example below.
Delivered path

Modified path

Layering Labels
You can define the layer on which your annotation labels appear in the drawing by editing the
label rule template XML file. After the <posSettings> section of the XML file, add a
<labelLayerSettings> definition using the <labelLayer> tag, like the one shown in the example
below, that defines the layer on which you want the annotations placed:

If the layer does not already exist in the template you are using to create drawings, the software
creates the layer automatically.
Prioritizing Labels
In "Clearspace Labels", you can use the XML setting for Priority to dictate which label(s) in the
drawing have a higher chance of being placed at their preferred positions, as specified by the
Positioning module with in the label XML template. When you create a drawing that uses a view
style with two or more "Clearspace Labels" defined, you can have multiple labels with different
Priority settings, and the level of Priority can impact which label is more likely to receive its
preferred position. For example, Label 1 and Label 2 have different Priority settings defined in
their respective XML templates. However, Label 1 takes its preferred position in the drawing
over Label 2 because the Priority is higher for Label 1. The lower numeric value for the Priority
means Label 1 is more likely to receive its preferred position.
Label 1

Label 2

Label Rules


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 551

Labels that have the same Priority setting in their XML templates will not collide in the drawing if
there is sufficient clearspace, but neither label receives preferential treatment for placement.

Compound Labels
Labels can be combined within a label rule or a template to produce a compound label.
Compounding labels is useful when it is necessary to:
1. Reduce the number of label rules in a view style.
2. Apply different formats to the various parts of a label.
3. Eliminate the need for a query interpreter.
4. Reduce the "footprint" of the label so that less open space is needed for its placement.
5. Use different placement modules for the various parts of a label.
Compound labels have different behaviors based on whether they are combined in a label rule or
in a template.
When combined in a label rule, the component parts of the compound label can be placed
automatically and moved independently of each other. For more information, see Create a
Compound Label Using Label Rules (on page 558).
When combined in a label template, the component parts cannot be moved independently of
each other. For more information, see Create a Compound Label with a Combined Symbol (on
page 560).
When combined in a label rule, the component parts of the compound label can be placed
manually and moved independently of each other. For more information, see Create a
Compound Label Using the Content Module (on page 563).

Create a Compound Label Using Label Rules
The following procedure steps you through the workflow for creating a custom compound label
for use in a drawing view style by modifying the Label Rule XML file. The software contains
labels that can be used in your drawings. It is not necessary to have administrator privileges on the
computer on which you perform this procedure. However, it is necessary to have at least write
permissions to the Symbols share on the server computer you are connected to.
Working in the Rules Folder
In theSymbols share of your database, locate the delivered label rules. The default location for
these files is [Referencce Data Product Directory]\SymbolsDrawings\Catalog\Rules\LabelRules.
Some label rules only use one label type in an XML file, but it is possible to call multiple labels in
the same XML file. For an example of this, refer to the delivered Equipment Plan_Process
Equipment_North-East Coordinate.xml file. This file uses three different labels in order to
create a compound label.

This method will produce two independent labels on a drawing. They will not necessarily be
placed in the same position and will behave as independent labels. To combine labels into one
symbol, see Create a Compound Label with a Combined Symbol (on page 560).
This method can only be used automatically in a view style. You cannot manually place a
label created with this method.

Create a Compound Label with a Combined Symbol
The following procedure steps you through the workflow for creating a custom compound label
for use in a drawing view style by modifying the label XML and label SYM files. The software
contains labels that can be used in your drawings. It is not necessary to have administrator
privileges on the computer on which you perform this procedure. However, it is necessary to have
at least write permissions to the Symbols share on the server computer you are connecting to.
Working in the Templates Folder
In the Symbols share of your database, locate the delivered labels. The default location for these
files is [Reference Product Directory]Symbols\Drawings\Catalog\Labels\Templates.
For an example of a delivered label that can be modified, refer to the delivered
BopPipePort1_CA_JL.xml file.
This method will produce a single independent symbol that contains two labels. It will not
be possible to reposition one of the labels without also re-positioning the other. This method is
recommended for placing compound labels that will always be positioned together. To place a
compound label that creates two independent symbols, see Create a Compound Label Using
Label Rules (on page 558).
This example will create a compound label that consists of the BopPipePort1 and Piping
Plan_LineNumber_Longest Segment labels.
1. Copy and paste a new copy of the appropriate XML file that you want to modify. In the case
of this example, copy and paste the delivered BopPipePort1_CA_JL.xml file.

It is recommended that you make a backup copy of this file before making any changes.
To do this, right-click on the file and select Copy. Paste the file in the same directory.
While the files can be edited with a text editor like Notepad, consider downloading a 3rd
party XML document editor to make it easier to read and modify the XML files.
2. Rename the copied file to BopPipePort1_CA_JL_Custom.xml and open it in a 3rd party
XML document editor.
3. Use the following XML format to add a label to the resulting symbol.
Original
<content>
<contentModule value="DrawingLabelHelper"/>
<ID attributeName="BopPipePort1">BopPipePort1.rtp</ID>
</content>
Modified
<content>
<contentModule value="DrawingLabelHelper"/>
<ID attributeName="BopPipePort1">BopPipePort1.rtp</ID>
<ID attributeName="Piping Plan_LineNumber_Longest Segment">Piping
Plan_LineNumber_Longest Segment.rtp</ID>
</content>
4. Repeat the above step for any additional labels that need to be added to the symbol.
5. Once all of the appropriate labels have been added to the label XML, save your changes and
exit.
Label Rules


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 561

Working in the Rules Folder
In the Symbols of your database, locate the delivered label rules. The default location for these
files is [Reference Product Directory]Symbols\Drawings\Catalog\Rules\LabelRules.
In this step, you are entering the name of the new label you created in the Label Templates folder.
1. Copy the BopPipePort1_CA_JL.xml file and paste a new copy of the file.
2. Rename the copied file to BopPipePort1_CA_JL_Custom.xml.
3. Open the new XML file and replace the label name with BopPipePort1_CA_JL_Custom.
<label>
<name>BopPipePort1_CA_JL_Custom</name>
</label>
4. Save the file and exit the editor.
Working with the SYMFile
1. Select the SYM file that corresponds to the XML file you edited earlier. In this case,
BopPipePort1_CA_JL.sym.
It is recommended that you make a backup copy of this file before making any changes.
To do this, right-click the file and select Copy. Paste the file in the same directory.
2. Open the copied file in SmartSketch Drawing Editor.
3. Click Text Box .
4. Click to place the text box and position it relative to the existing symbol.
5. Enter generic text into the text box field. For example, Test.
6. Use the Select Tool to right-click the text box you created and select Properties.
7. In the Text Box Properties box, select the User tab.
8. Make sure the Attribute set is defined appropriately.
9. Type ID in the Name field.
10. In the Value field, enter the name of the RTP file you added to the XML file. In this case,
Piping Plan_LineNumber_Longest Segment.
Label Rules


562 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

In most cases, the name entered in the Value field is identical to the RTP file name. The
correct name can be found in the XML file inside the ID attributeName tag.

11. Click Add and then click OK.
12. Save your changes and exit.
13. Add the new label rule to the appropriate view style. For more information on adding a label
rule to a view style, see Label Rules (on page 98).
Below is an example of a label combining the BopPipePort1_CA_JL symbol with the
Piping Plan_LineNumber_Longest Segment symbol. Note that the highlighted symbol
includes both labels since they are combined.

If you want to alter the origin of the symbol, follow these steps.
1. Select the symbol or text box.
2. On the Symbol Authoring Tools ribbon, select Symbol Origin.
Label Rules


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 563

3. Locate the center of the label (or the place you would like the origin to be), and place the
origin.

Save the file and exit.

When placing a compound label, a leader will connect to the last text box, not the symbol
origin.
In order to place the leader in the middle of a compound label, you can insert a small text
box first so that the leader will point to the small text box between the two custom labels.
The dummy text box must be placed after all other text boxes or symbols are placed.
Below is an example of a dummy text box placed in between two functional text boxes. In this
instance, the leader will connect to the small dummy text box as long as it was placed last.

Create a Compound Label Using the Content Module
This section steps you through the workflow for creating a custom compound label for use in a
drawing view style. This is accomplished by modifying the label XML and label SYM file. The
software contains labels that can be used in your drawings. It is not necessary to have
administrator privileges on the computer on which you perform this procedure. However, it is
necessary to have at least write permissions to the Symbols share on the server computer to which

In the Symbols share of your database, locate the delivered labels. The default location for these
files is [Reference Product Directory]Symbols\Drawings\Catalog\Labels\Templates.
Label Rules


564 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

Some label rules only use one label type in an XML file, but it is possible to call multiple labels in
the same XML file. In this example, the Instrument Name_Elevation label is created and
includes the instrument name and elevation value below the name.

This method will produce two independent labels on a drawing. They will not necessarily be
placed in the same position and will behave as independent labels. To combine labels into one
symbol, see Create a Compound Label with a Combined Symbol (on page 560).
Labels created with this method can only be placed manually; these labels cannot be added to
a view style for automatic placement.
The compound labels resulting from this workflow are placed with a single origin point as
opposed to separate origins for each symbol. For more information on creating a compound
label with individual origin points, see Create a Compound Label Using Label Rules (on page
558).
1. Create a new XML file in the Templates folder. Right-click and select New from the menu.
For this example, the label XML file is called Instrument Name_Elelvation.xml.
2. Use the following XML template to create the label. For this example, the Instrument
Elevation_Equipment_Name and SP3DCoordinate_CA_JL labels will be added.
Before proceeding, consider downloading a 3rd party XML document editor to make it
easier to read and modify the XML files.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<label>
<content>
<contentModule value="DrawingLabelHelper" />
<embeddedLabel>Instrument
Elevation_Equipment_Name</embeddedLabel>
<embeddedLabel>SP3DCoordinate_CA_JL</embeddedLabel>
</content>
</label>
3. Once all of the appropriate embedded labels have been added to the label rule, save your
changes and exit.
Working with the SYMFile
1. Create a new SYM file by copying and pasting an existing symbol in the Templates folder. In
this example, the SYM file is named Instrument Name_Elevation.sym.
2. Open the new SYM file in SmartSketch Drawing Editor and delete any existing symbols or
graphics.
3. Open Symbol Explorer and drag the Instrument Elevation_Equipment_Name.sym
and SP3DCoordinate.sym files to the active sheet.
4. Right-click on the Instrument Elevation_Equipment_Name symbol, and select Properties.
5. In the User tab, enter EmbeddedLabel in the Name box, and Instrument
Elevation_Equipment_Name in the Value box, and click Add.
6. Make any other changes to the label format and behavior, and click OK to close the dialog
box.
7. Right-click on the SP3DCoordinate_JA_CL symbol, and select Properties.

8. In the User tab, enter EmbeddedLabel in the Name box, and SP3DCoordinate_JA_CL in
the Value box, and click Add.
9. Make any other changes to the label format and behavior, and click OK to close the dialog
box.
10. Save your changes and exit.
Below is an example of a label combining the Instrument Elevation_Equipment_Name
symbol with the SP3DCoordinate symbol.

If you want to alter the origin of the symbol, follow these steps.
1. Select the symbol or text box.
2. On the Symbol Authoring Tools ribbon, select Symbol Origin.
3. Locate the center of the label (or the place you would like the origin to be), and place the
origin.

4. Save the file and exit.
Label Rules XML
Label rules control the appearance of annotation labels as well as their automatic placement on
drawings. For example, you can create label rules that place labels with or without borders and
leader lines. You can even specify that the labels find "clear space" on the drawing.
You assign label rules as part of the drawing view style with the Tools > Define View Style
command in the Drawings and Reports task. You can use these rules for many purposes. The
delivered sample rules include several types of rules, such as material and grade labels, profile
cross-section labels, and part name labels. For more information, see the Orthographic Drawings
User's Guide.
Label rules are delivered in the Symbols share in the [Product Reference Data
Directory]\Symbols\Drawings\Catalog\Rules\LabelRules folder.
Each label rule uses one or more label templates. For more information, see Label Templates XML
(on page 587).

North-East Coordinate Labels
Description: The North-East Coordinate labels are compound labels that incorporate a symbol,
north coordinate, and east coordinate. For more information on how these labels work and how to
create your own label, see Create a Compound Label Using Label Rules (on page 558).
Each North-East Coordinate label uses the corresponding Symbol, East Coordinate, and North
Coordinate label template file from the \Catalog\Labels\Templates folder.

Label Templates XML
Label Templates XML Overview
Quadrants and Granularity
When a label is placed automatically, the software looks for the best place to position the label. In
order to rationalize this process, the software breaks a view into four quadrants. If the software
looks through quadrant one and is unable to find enough clear space for the label, it will move to
quadrant two, and so on. If the software is unable to find enough clear space based on your
specifications, it will place the label at an absolute position, which is also specified by you. In
many cases, this absolute position could be the object origin or control point. These settings are
configured in the delivered label template XML files.
The amount of granularity also determines which quadrant a label is placed in. There are three
granularity settings that allow you to change the proximity of one label to another when being

placed in a drawing view. A granularity setting of Coarse (shown in black in the example below)
will reach out at full text box height increments. Medium (shown in red in the example below)
setting will reach out in increments one half of the text box height. A Fine (shown in green in the
example below) setting will reach out in increments of one third of the text box height. Based on
these settings, you can change the number of labels that will fit inside a quadrant. A Coarse
granularity setting will allow the labels to spread out and be more legible, while a Fine setting will
fit more labels in a quadrant, but will be more difficult to read. The granularity settings can be
found in the label template XML files.
<labelSettings>
<granularity>1</granularity>
</labelSettings>
In the label XML templates, a granularity setting of 0 is Course, 1 is Medium, and 2 is
Fine.



Positioning Settings
The starting position of a label or the label leader (also referred to as the terminator) can be
modified in the Label Templates. In the case of connectPoint, you can determine where the leader
will connect to the object being labeled. DefaultLabelPointGenerator must be used in the
related template in order to use the connectPoint setting. The connectPoint option can be found in
the <posSettings> section of the template. When the Control Point setting (9) is used, the
software will place the point on the object origin unless there is a specified control point on the
object.
Label Rules


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 589

In the case of positioningPoint, you can specify where the label will be placed on the object.
DefaultLabelPointGenerator must also be used in the related template in order to use the
positioningPoint setting. The positioningPoint option can be found in the <posSettings> section
of the template. When the Control Point setting (9) is entered, the software will place the point on
the object origin unless there is a specified control point on the object.
Below are examples of the XML template and the positioning values.

Inside/Outside Shape and Leader Jogs
Leaders will automatically position inside or outside of the equipment object being labeled. For
example, if you select the object origin and place the label outside of the object, the leader will
simply point toward the origin from outside the object without crossing the object boundaries. If
you place the same label within the object boundaries, the leader will point directly to the object
origin.
Label Rules


590 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

Below is an example of the label being placed on the outside of an object. Note that the leader
stops at the object boundary and points to the origin.

When the label is moved closer to the terminator, the leader adjusts.

The leaderSettings section of the templates allow you to change the behavior of the label leaders.
The leaderModule tag allows you to choose a leader module, for example, DwgLeaderControl.
The style tag allows you to choose a style for the leaders. In many cases, the Normal style is used.
The breakline setting determines if a jog will be placed in the leader. The value for a leader jog is
-1, while 0 will omit the jog. The jogSegmentOffset setting allows you to control the offset from
the jog segment to the label. The jogLength setting also lets you control the length of the jog
segment. The leaderOffset setting allows you to control the offset from the matchline to the jog
segment. The default value for the leaderOffset setting is 0.035 m and must be used with the
DwgMarginLeaderControl leader module.
Below is an example of the XML template for the leaderSettings.

<jogLength>0.005</jogLength>
<leaderOffset>0.035</leaderOffset>
</leaderSettings>

Label Settings
You can customize the automatic behavior of the labels in the labelSettings section of the
templates.
The labelOffset setting determines the reach from the terminator to the closest text box
corner. This value is represented in meters.
<labelOffset>0.04</labelOffset>


The granularity option determines how many attempts are made to place a label in clear
space. The setting options are 0 for Coarse, 1 for Medium, and 2 for Fine.
<granularity>0</granularity>
The priority option allows you to place a priority on labels in order to resolve conflicts
among multiple labels searching for white space. The lower the value, the higher the priority.
For example, 1 is a higher priority than 3.
<priority>1</priority>
The subPriority option allows you to place a second priority on labels in order to resolve
more specific conflicts among multiple labels searching for white space. As with the priority
option described above, the lower the number, the higher the priority. For example, 1 is a
higher priority than 3. A value of 0 indicates that the subPriority option is off.
<subPriority>2</subPriority>
The perimeterOffset option determines the offset that margin labels should be offset from
the view border. The DrawingGAMarginOnly module must be used for the geometric
analyzer. For more information on the DrawingGAMarginOnly module, see
DrawingGAMarginOnly (on page 738).
<perimeterOffset>0.055</perimeterOffset>

The maxFactor setting determines the maximum scale factor for the text size. This value is
measured in meters.
The minFactor setting determines the minimum scale factor for the text size. This value is
measured in meters.
<maxFactor>1</maxFactor>
<minFactor>1</minFactor>
The minOffset and maxOffset settings determine the minimum and maximum (respectively)
offset factor for being placed in clear space. These settings are similar to the labelOffset
setting.
<minOffset>0</minOffset>
<maxOffset>0.005</maxOffset>
The whiteObjs setting allows you to ignore the white space settings and place a certain type
of label in a drawing. The value used in the whiteObj element is the name of the 2D layer in
the drawing. For example, to allow labels to be drawn on top of the objects included in the
Beam layer, the whiteObj value is Beam.

The whiteObj element must nest inside of the whiteObjs parent
element in the XML hierarchy.
Dimension Settings
When using a template that applies dimensions to the drawings, you can customize the behavior
and appearance of the dimensions with the dimensionSettings section.
The maxDimOffset value determines the maximum linear paper space distance between
consecutive witness lines in linear distance dimensions.
<maxDimOffset>0.2</maxDimOffset>
The maxWitnessLength value determines the maximum paper space length of witness lines
in linear distance dimensions.
<maxWitnessLength>0.2</maxWitnessLength>
The overall option places an additional dimension over each dimension chain cluster
identified by the rule. A value of -1 will place an overall dimension, while 0 will not.
Label Rules


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 593

<overall>-1</overall>

The overallOffset option determines the offset for the overall dimension from the dimension
chain.
<overallOffset>0.005</overallOffset>

The granularity option determines how many attempts are made to place a dimension in clear
space. The setting options are 0 for Coarse, 1 for Medium, and 2 for Fine.
<granularity>0</granularity>
The perimeterOffset option determines the offset that margin dimensions should be offset
from the matchline. The DrawingGAMarginOnly module must be used for the geometric
analyzer. For more information on the DrawingGAMarginOnly module, see
DrawingGAMarginOnly (on page 738).
<perimeterOffset>0.055</perimeterOffset>
The priority option allows you to place a priority on particular rules in order to resolve
conflicts among multiple rules. The lower the value, the higher the priority. For example, 1 is
a higher priority than 3. Also, the label and dimension priorities are considered globally,
which means you can give preference to dimensions over labels, and so on.
<priority>1</priority>
The horiz option determines whether horizontal dimensions are placed. A value of -1 will
place horizontal dimensions, while 0 will not.
Label Rules


594 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

<horiz>-1</horiz>

The vert option determines whether vertical dimensions are placed. A value of -1 will place
vertical dimensions, while 0 will not.
<vert>-1</vert>

If the value for keepTopOrBottomDup is 0, then only the top-most point of an aligned set of
points is considered for dimensioning. If the value is set to 1, then only the bottom-most point
of an aligned set of points is considered for dimensioning.
Similarly, if the value for keepLeftOrRightDup is set to 0, then only the left-most point in a
horizontally aligned set of points is considered in dimensioning. If the value is set to 1, then
only the right-most point in horizontally aligned set of points is considered for dimensioning.
Label Rules


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 595

<keepTopOrBottomDup>1</keepTopOrBottomDup>
<keepLeftOrRightDup>1</keepLeftOrRightDup>
The align option determines whether similar linear distance dimension chains should attempt
alignment with each other if their projection angles match. A value of -1 will align the
dimensions, while 0 will not. The value must be 0 for absolute positioned dimensions.
<align>0</align>


Geometric Analyzer Settings
You can customize the automatic behavior of the geometric analyzer in the
geometricAnalyzerSettings section of the template.
The placeLines setting determines whether or not a line is placed between labels. This setting
is useful for creating label chains to signify a common elevation. A value of -1 means lines are
placed between labels, whereas a value of 0 means that lines are not placed between labels.
<placeLines>-1</placeLines>

The cpLabelType setting determines the orientation of a label. A value of 0 indicates the
label is a static control point coordinate label. A value of 1 means that the label is horizontal
text, while a value of 2 indicates the label is vertical text.
<cpLabelType>1</cpLabelType>
The ignoreViewDirection setting determines whether or not the view direction is considered
when updating a drawing. This setting is useful when placing an elevation coordinate label on
a plan view. A value of -1 means the view direction is ignored. A value of 0 means that the
view direction is considered during update. The default setting for this tag is 0.
<ignoreViewDirection>-1</ignoreViewDirection>
Symbol Settings
The label symbols can be modified in SmartSketch Drawing Editor. For more information on the
specific attributes available for modification, see the SmartSketch Drawing Editor User's Guide.

Generic Shape Tracing
The software automatically hides the leader when it intersects the boundaries of an object. In the
example below, the dotted segment of the leader would be hidden because it is placed over the
equipment object boundaries.

Label Rules


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 597

Generic Text Shape Leader Shift
The leader will automatically switch sides when being repositioned. By default, the leader origin
is in the middle of the label. When being repositioned, the leader will find the shortest distance
from the label to the object.

If a label with a jogged leader is placed, the jog will position on the left or right side depending on
which side is closest to the point being labeled.

If an unsymmetrical text shape label is placed with a jogged leader, the direction of the label will
change with the jog position.

Label Rules
Label rules control automatic label placement on drawings. For more information, see Label Rules
(on page 98). You can customize these label rules by editing the XML and/or SYM files. For more

HngSup - Key Plan Label
Description: Label contains key point coordinate location information. This label consists of 5
labels that return the Y offset, X offset, Y grid plane, X grid plane, and elevation. A symbol is also
used to label the key point location.
If no coordinate system is defined, or the hanger assembly key point is more than one
meter outside of the first or last x/y grid plane or elevation plane in the specified coordinate
system, the software defaults to the global coordinate system and the grid label bubbles are left
blank.
Key Point location - Indicates the location of the hanger key point with a symbol. The
key point location symbol is placed relative to where the coordinate system is in model
space. In the example below, the key point is located in the upper right-hand portion of the
grid system.
Y Offset - Distance between key point and nearest Y grid plane or global origin on the
y-axis.
Y Grid Plane - Name of the nearest Y grid plane. If no coordinate system is specified in
the drawing sheet properties, the software defaults to the global coordinate system and the
bubble is left blank.
X Offset - Distance between key point and nearest X grid plane or global origin on the
x-axis.
X Grid Plane - Name of the nearest X grid plane. If no coordinate system is specified in
the drawing sheet properties, the software defaults to the global coordinate system and the
bubble is left blank.
Elevation Value - Distance between key point and coordinate system origin or global
origin on the z-axis. If no coordinate system is specified in the drawing sheet properties,
the software defaults to the global coordinate system origin.

In general, dimension rules control the placement of dimensions while dimension styles control
the appearance, including the units, of dimensions in orthographic drawings. However, dimension
styles and dimension rules interact in complex ways. There are two methods you can use to get
dimensions to appear in drawings. Automatic dimensioning and manual dimensioning place
dimensions in native format drawings.
For automatic dimensioning, the view style controls whether or not dimensions are placed. For
manual dimensioning, you edit an existing drawing and place dimensions manually.
The Save As command saves drawings from the database to files and presents additional
considerations about dimensions. The files created by the Save As command can be native format
or a foreign format such as MicroStation or AutoCAD. With the Save As command, the software
attempts to replicate dimensions as they are shown within a drawing.
Assigning dimension units is different for each method. For more information, see:
Automatic Dimensioning
Manual Dimensioning
Save As MicroStation or AutoCAD Format
Isometric drawings use the isometric options settings within their style to determine the
dimension appearance, placement, and units.

Dimension rules control the appearance and behavior of dimensions as well as their placement on
drawings.
You assign dimension rules as part of the drawing view style with the Tools > Define View Style
command in the Drawings and Reports task. You can use these rules for many purposes.
Dimension rules are delivered in the Symbols share in the [Product Reference Data
Directory]\Symbols\Drawings\Catalog\Rules\DimensionRules folder.
Each dimension rule uses one or more dimension templates. For more information, see Dimension
Templates XML (see "SP3D Dwgs Dimension Templates XML" on page 654)

SP3D Dwgs Dimension Templates XML
Dimension Templates XML Overview
Dimension Settings
When using a template that applies dimensions to the drawings, you can customize the behavior
and appearance of the dimensions with the dimensionSettings section.
The maxDimOffset value determines the maximum linear paper space distance between
consecutive witness lines in linear distance dimensions.
<maxDimOffset>0.2</maxDimOffset>
The maxWitnessLength value determines the maximum paper space length of witness lines
in linear distance dimensions.
<maxWitnessLength>0.2</maxWitnessLength>
The overall option places an additional dimension over each dimension chain cluster
identified by the rule. A value of -1 will place an overall dimension, while 0 will not.
Dimension Rules


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 655

<overall>-1</overall>

The overallOffset option determines the offset for the overall dimension from the dimension
chain.
<overallOffset>0.005</overallOffset>

The granularity option determines how many attempts are made to place a dimension in clear
space. The setting options are 0 for Coarse, 1 for Medium, and 2 for Fine.
<granularity>0</granularity>
The perimeterOffset option determines the offset that margin dimensions should be offset
from the matchline. The DrawingGAMarginOnly module must be used for the geometric
analyzer. For more information on the DrawingGAMarginOnly module, see
DrawingGAMarginOnly (on page 738).
<perimeterOffset>0.055</perimeterOffset>
The priority option allows you to place a priority on particular rules in order to resolve
conflicts among multiple rules. The lower the value, the higher the priority. For example, 1 is
a higher priority than 3. Also, the label and dimension priorities are considered globally,
which means you can give preference to dimensions over labels, and so on.
<priority>1</priority>
The horiz option determines whether horizontal dimensions are placed. A value of -1 will
place horizontal dimensions, while 0 will not.
Dimension Rules


656 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

<horiz>-1</horiz>

The vert option determines whether vertical dimensions are placed. A value of -1 will place
vertical dimensions, while 0 will not.
<vert>-1</vert>

If the value for keepTopOrBottomDup is 0, then only the top-most point of an aligned set of
points is considered for dimensioning. If the value is set to 1, then only the bottom-most point
of an aligned set of points is considered for dimensioning.
Similarly, if the value for keepLeftOrRightDup is set to 0, then only the left-most point in a
horizontally aligned set of points is considered in dimensioning. If the value is set to 1, then
only the right-most point in horizontally aligned set of points is considered for dimensioning.
Dimension Rules


Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide 657

<keepTopOrBottomDup>1</keepTopOrBottomDup>
<keepLeftOrRightDup>1</keepLeftOrRightDup>
The align option determines whether similar linear distance dimension chains should attempt
alignment with each other if their projection angles match. A value of -1 will align the
dimensions, while 0 will not. The value must be 0 for absolute positioned dimensions.
<align>0</align>

The preserveTextOrientation value determines whether or not text is aligned or moved out
from the dimension line. The text obeys the text orientation setting in the dimension style
settings of the label template XML file if the preserveTextOrientation value is set to -1. The
text orientation value in the label template XML is Horizontal, Vertical, Parallel, or
Perpendicular. If the preserveTextOrientation value is set to 0, the dimension text is either
rotated appropriately to match the dimension line, or it is moved out from the line if there is
not enough clear space.
<preserveTextOrientation>-1</preserveTextOrientation>
The range value determines whether a separate transparent view volume is placed on the
outer region of the SmartFrame, similar to a picture frame. A range is placed if the value is set
to -1. If the range value is set to 0, a range is not placed.
<range>-1</range>
The rangeOffset value is only valid when the range value is set to -1, otherwise it is ignored.
When the range value is on, the rangeOffset value determines the size of the range from each
side of the SmartFrame. A rangeOffset value of 0.03 places a view volume that extends from
the edge of the SmartFrame sides into the rest of the SmartFrame by 3 centimeters. The space
measured by the rangeOffset value is measured in paper space, not model space.
Dimension Rules


658 Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide

<rangeOffset>0.03</rangeOffset>

The internalDimension value determines whether or not dimensions are placed inside the
internal dimension range (see graphic above). If the internalDimension value is set to -1, all
dimensions that are inside of the internal dimension range are placed within the internal
dimension range, and not outside the view. When using the internalDimension parameter, you
can specify any positioning module to use with the dimensions.
<internalDimension>-1</internalDimension>
The externalDimension value determines whether or not dimensions are placed inside the
external dimension range (see graphic above). If the externalDimension value is set to -1, all
dimensions that are inside of the external dimension range are placed within the external
dimension range area, and not outside the view. When using the externalDimension
parameter, you must use the DrawingDimMarginPos positioning module.
<externalDimension>-1</externalDimension>
The minimumDimension value determines a minimum dimension distance. If a dimension is
less than the specified distance, it is not placed in the drawing. If a dimension is less than the
specified distance, and is part of a dimension chain, it is absorbed into the larger dimension.
The surrounding dimension that absorbs the smaller dimension is determined by the direction
of the dimension. For vertical dimensions, the small dimension is absorbed by the larger
dimension below it. For horizontal dimensions, the small dimension is absorbed by the larger
dimension to the left.
<minimumDimension>0.3</minimumDimension>

The trimWitness value determines whether or not a dimension witness line extends into the
drawing view to the dimensioned object or stops at the drawing view. If the trimWitness value
is set to -1,the dimension witness lines are trimmed. If the value is set to 0, the dimension
witness lines continue into the drawing view to the dimensioned objects.
The range, rangeOffset, internalDimension and externalDimension values must be
activated (-1) or defined in order for the trimWitness function to work.
<trimWitness>-1</trimWitness>
