How to add a text label for "type of Tee" on a stress isometric using AutoPIPE?
AutoPIPE 11.02.xx.xx to 10.00.xx.xx has no feature to add a text label on an isometric drawing. Update the Style.xml file as mentioned below will add a new text label to the drawing.
The style.xml file is located in AutoPIPE program data directory. The default location for this file on a typical installation:
Folder: C:\ProgramData\ Bentley\ AutoPIPE CONNECT \ isoextractor\ projects\ project01\ stress\ Config
Add the following lines of data to the <userLabels> section of the Style.xml file:
<entry> <name>Tee Type</name> <id>23319CEE-0E2F-45CF-9DDC-F01049860126</id> <include>IE_TYPE=CT_TEE|CT_FITTING_CROSS</include> <exclude> </exclude> <text>TYPE=$(AP_Type)</text> <type>NOTE</type> <cellName>NOTE</cellName> <flags></flags> <PlaceLabel>True</PlaceLabel> </entry>
In order to turn this tag note OFF, the user must manually edit the Style.XML file setting this entry PlaceLabel to False:
A new enhancement has been logged to make turning this tag note On / OFF more user friendlier.
For those who prefer not to see the "Type =" text at the beginning of the tee tag name, can remove the text by modifying Line 23 from the image above, change:
For those who prefer not to see a box surrounding "Type = xxxx" text, can have it removed by modifying Line 25 from the image above, change:
Note: removing this border box can sometimes overlap with other items in isometrics. A box on text saves it in such case.
