How to print the "Component Rotation"report while using AutoPIPE?
The Component rotation dialog was first introduced into AutoPIPE V8i 09.06.xx.xx and higher giving the user much more control over rotated items.
The report would be displayed only after enabling the "Show rotation report" option on the dialog (as indicated below).
The Component Rotation report has an *.ROT file extension and would be saved to the same folder location as the model. Each time a Rotate command was completed with the "Show Rotation Report" option enabled, it would display the new report overwriting the same *.ROT file again and again. There is no link to this file from the Menu or icons in the program. Use one of the following methods to print this report.
Assuming that "Show rotation report" option was enabled and pressing OK on the Component Rotate dialog the *.ROT file would have saved and displayed in AutoPIPE report viewer.
Print Options #1:
While the report is open in AutoPIPE Report Viewer, Select File> Print
Print Option #2:
After the *.Rot has been created, open it using any text editor (i.e. Ultra Edit, NotePad++, Microsoft Word, etc) to review and print
