What are the settings to achieve the exact same spool numbering as Isogens (OOBE with last version before it was pulled), using the latest version of OPIM/AutoPLANT OOB?
Edit: I used the guide here:communities.bentley.com/.../how-to-enable-openplant-isometrics-manager-to-read-autoplant-spool-number which sadly yields no spool numbers at all, so a little bit worse than standard OPIM. I am still interested in duplicating the out-of-box spool numbering of any of the previous versions of AutoPLANT with came with Isogens, if anyone has any additional ideas. Thanks again.
Maybe you could explain this requirement with more details and screenshots. Please add for us information what spool numbering settings you had on ISOGEN.
Spool numbering is known situation for us and we created Wiki article about how to configure OPIM, take all Spool numbers from AutoPLANT and display them in generated Isometrics. Please check below wiki and maybe it will help you to achieve same like you had on ISOGEN. If no, then we will wait for more information about required numbering settings and then we will try to find you the best way how to configure it.https://communities.bentley.com/products/plant/w/plant_design_and_engineering__wiki/23040/how-to-enable-openplant-isometrics-manager-to-read-autoplant-spool-number

Unfortunately this leads to no spool numbers showing at all. Thank you for the effort, anyway. I'm still interested in duplicating the spool numbering from the out-of-box experience of any of the previous versions of AutoPLANT which came with Isogens if you have any additional thoughts.
If you have created new Property, mapped it with AutoPLANT SPOOL atribute, used it for your Spools label then it should be presented on Isometrics. You need to be sure that property is mapped correctly with AutoPLANT Spool attribute.
Regarding duplicating spool numbering from Isogen, please add us here any screenshot with example, where we could se what significance in spool numbering Isogen had. I can understand that it was displaying same spool numbers as were used in AutoPLANT. Same can be achieved with OPIM and you can have same spool numbering from AutoPLANT. If instruction on provided wiki is not working, then maybe you could create a Service Request for us with all details about your testing and our AutoPLANT team will check this.
Thanks for the reply! Can you go ahead furnish me with a copy of your configuration which does this? I followed the guide verbatim and the results were disappointing. Have you actually seen this work, or are you merely suggesting that it should work? Again, I appreciate your reply but I will not be bending over backwards to screenshot out-of-box configuration results, which should be readily available or known to anyone who is supporting this software, so please do not suggest this anymore. I have filed a service request. Thanks anyway.
Thank you for information about your issue while fallowing this wiki and our AutoPLANT Team will try to find out what is not right. Regarding OOTB ISOGEN Spool numbering, this product is deprecated and discontinued with no Support as of June 24th 2016. We are not working with not supported applications It would be very helpful if you could add to created service request a detailed information about how it was on your ISOGEN isometrics, that we could try to find how to achieve same in OPIM.
Thank you for your collaboration with us.
Thank you for your reply. Yes, we are aware that you no longer have or support Isogens- software for which you will notice I'm not requesting support, but using as a comparison for how OPIM should function in terms of spool numbering. We have a ticket open, and I understand they are looking into this now, perhaps for the first time. By the time the output from OPIM is examined more thoroughly, screenshots from your older and more functional software will not be necessary to understand why it is broken. Simply put, the spool numbers should be unique per line number, sequential, and not count items that aren't spools. Thank you for looking into your OPIM product- it has some issues that have been missed in QA (assuming there is a quality assurance process in place).
