Hi, we are using OpenPlant and BRCM to 3D model our Transformer Platforms, and to route cables we need to put all of the equipment inside the 3D model. Having done that we would like to generate all Plant Layouts directly from the 3D model rather than do the work twice and trying to keep 2D in sync manually with 3D. This means that the 3D component needs to change how it looks on the 2D extraction, example a 3D motor would display on the 2D drawing as a Circle with the letter M inside it etc. Is it possible to configure the tools to automatically substitute the 3D object with its associated 2D symbol when the 2D layout is extracted? Thanks, Paul
Thanks for posting your Query on Plant Forum!
You mean to say you need to extract 2D drawing from 3D drawing modeled? From 3D Model you can extract 2D drawings using OpenPlant Orthographics Manager. Please see below wiki article to check the processes.
Any further requirement like aligning a particular cell can used instead of any component.

I am aware that to extract 2D layouts you use Orthographics manager although seems to be mostly based on piping, we use electrical ladder rack, HVAC and Equipment so most of teh functions are not so useful. However the issue is we do not want the 3D motor symbol/object on the 2D layout but the appropriate 2D symbol which in the case of a motor is a Circle with the letter M inside it. How do we/can we configure this supplimentation as we do not want to put a 2D circle in the 3D model that would make the 3D model useless. Does this make sense now?
Yes this is clear- I need to check the possibilities.
I'm sorry there is no function like this on OPOM now.
We updated replacing 3D valve to 2D symbol in the latest release. but it is only for valve.
Thanks Shinkab to confirm here.
Paul, can you please raise an SR for this item to log enhancement on supporting the 2D cell functionality from 3D drawing?
