  • Hello Yogesh,

    To represent Bolt Dia. & Bolt Length in isometric BOM sheet follow the steps below:

    1. You need to open the FINAL.ALT file in notepad. It is located in the directory ..\project name\config\isogen\final
    2. Add the following line towards the bottom:

    -359 DIA X LEN . You will have to type this in and then save the file.

    The length of the bolts should now show up on the Material List.
    Now,

    1.Open Project Sample Metric in Project Administrator
    2.Go to Isogen>Input>Options File
    3.Find switch 65 and change the switch to output length and diameter as per your requirement.
    4.Save and close the Options editor
    5.Save and close Project Administrator
    6.Open AutoPLANT
    7.Run an Iso. from the model
    8.Open the Iso. and note the changes

    Please let me know the results.

    Thanks & Regards
