I have a situation.
My company builds large composite 3D models comprised of 80-100 different files. We have a reference structure that divides to whole project model into different discipline models, then ech discipline model into area models...
When we make sheets, we extract 2D graphics from the 3D models, and use those as the background graphics.
On a past project, one of our designers created about 50 sheets by referencing in the 3D model however. Now, we're trying to archive the project. Someone basically took the whole 3D model, and merged it all together into one file. For most of the sheets that didn't matter, but the one with the 3D model attached it has created a mess.
Basically, the guy is gong to have to go into each sheet and turn off all the new levels that showed up in his files when everything was merged.
Here's my question: Can he set up the level display he wants in one file, then save that into all his other files? Or is he going to have to do this in each and every sheet?
Thanks Francois for the comment.
Mike, for future questions or discussion topics, the best place to post would be the respective product Community's forum. The below link can help you find the right one:
For example here is a link to the MicroStation forum:
This is a bit late maybe, but you could have done the following:
Go to the Utilities Menu and select "Batch Process..."
On the Batch Process screen add all the files that you want to process.
Click on the button to create a new command file.
In the command file add the keyins that you want to run.
In your case you want to switch off levels, so you will add a line for each level you want to switch off like so:
level set display off 5
level set display off 6
Save the command file and select process.
This will execute the key-in commands in the file on each file selected.
I'm not sure if you would have to add a key-in to "Save settings" at the end of the command file when you are done, but I don't think so.
Maybe this can help you for next time?
