Going through the process of exporting a pxf file from OpenPLANT Modeler (08.11.09.278) and then importing the pxf file into AutoPIPE, the global coordinates from OpenPLANT do not get carried over into AutoPIPE. Is there a way AutoPIPE can read in the coordinates from OpenPLANT so that the two models have the same coordinates?
Close all open AutoPIPE sessions.
In the AutoPIPE folder is the following file:
C:\Bentley\AutoPIPE V8i SELECTseries\ CADAP.MAP
Open the file in any text editor (i.e. notepad).
Note: Any changes made in the file must be correct, any mistake can and will cause problems with the imported model. Be sure to match column location and format.
Starting on line #60 is a list of setting options that you can change at will. To resolve this issue, change:
'SHIFT ORIGIN (0,0,0) TO FIRST POINT IN MODEL ' 'Y'
'SHIFT ORIGIN (0,0,0) TO FIRST POINT IN MODEL ' 'N'
Note: be sure that the coordinates do not exceed AutoPIPE's limitation with significant digits for corrdinate location. Otherwise the imported model will crash AutoPIPE at some point.
Save the CADAP.MAP file and restart AutoPIPE.
For complete details on these options, please see the following AutoPIPE help section: Help > Contents> Search Tab> enter "PXF Import Options" (include the quotes), press List Topics button, double click on the selected topic from the list provided to see more information.
