How to relocate north arrow to a different position & rotate to a new direction on an AutoPIPE Stress Isometric using OPIM?
In order to relocate north arrow you have to perform following steps.
1. In AutoPIPE launch Openplant Isometric Manager from menu “File > Launch Openplant Isometric Manager”2. Open any border file you want to modify from “[Installation Directory]\isoextractor\Borders\...” i.e. I have selected DGN\A0BORD.DGN3. Press Settings>View Attributes4. On View Attributes dialog select “Text Node” and close the dialog. You can see in the snapshot below
5. On top left you see North Arrow place holder along with the text nodes6. Select the place-holder along with the text nodes
7. Now you can move the selection set to any place in the border.8. After setting proper place close OpenPlant Isometric Manager.9. Make sure to use the same border during export to Stress Isometric using AutoPIPE.
This requires a lot of manual manipulation in AutoPIPE v.11.02.xx.xx and lower OPIM versions. However, use the following process when using AutoPIPE 11.03.00.xx and higher.
AutoPIPE v11.03.00.xx and higher
Open "style.xml" from the following folder location:
"C:\ProgramData\ Bentley\ AutoPIPE CONNECT xx\ isoextractor\ projects\ project01\ stress\ Config\ style.xml"
Find the following setting under <StyleConverterSettings>
Following options can be used other than 'Y' as below:
AutoPIPE 11.02.xx.xx and lower OPIM versions.
Log a Bentley Service Request asking for patch update. After installing the patch update, see procedure above for method to rotate the north arrow.
Limitations: This patch has only one updated border file: Cbord.DGN. Additional border files will be made available in AutoPIPE v.11.03.00.xx and higher (817423).
