How to change the scale size of a support symbol displayed on an AutoPIPE Stress Isometric using OPIM?
Create a stress isometric, on the Isometric Manager Options dialog select Settings button in lower left corner of the dialog. On the next Settings dialog, enter a Support Scale factor as needed.
Press OK button 2x to create a stress isometric in order to see how the new scale factor setting affected the drawing.
The style.xml file requires an update. It is located in following folder:
The file can be open in any Text editing application (i.e. MS Word, NotePAD, UltraEdit ect..)
After the file is opened, search for the following entry <ScaleFactorSupports>1</ScaleFactorSupports>
must be changed to <ScaleFactorSupports>0.5</ScaleFactorSupports> or any other desired factor between 0.00 to 1.00 per requirement.
Save the file, close the file, start AutoPIPE, open/create a model, save a Stress Isometric and confirm the setting works.
Note: A reoccurring issue has been found in AutoPIPE Connect 10.01.00.08 and lower, the Scalefactor setting above is reset to the original value when trying to create a Stress Isometric. This has been documented under TFS-D439345 and will be fixed in a future version of the application. There is no workaround or avoidance at this time.
