In AutoPLANT when running a BOM, the Quantity dimensions (cut lengths) are in inches, but the actual dimension given is not correct.
For example if a pipe is drawn in at 100", the BOM is listing the cut length as 3 15/16" while the properties of the pipe are showing the correct length.
Our assumption is this may be some sort of units issue. It does not work out exactly as a division of 25.4, but it is close. If you take 3 15/16" * 25.4 you get 100.0125". We are thinking the difference is a rounding issue. We have looked everywhere and cannot find anything. This is a fresh install on a new computer of the current CONNECT versions. Any ideas of where to look would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for posting your query on Bentley Communities forum.
Are you facing this issue in Imperial unit or Mixed Metric unit ?
Regards Abhijeet Shinde
We are starting the drawing under Sample Imperial.
We have tested on our side it working fine.
Could you please check Style.cfg variable Set it to, IE_FMT_LENGTH_ACCURACY = 1
Hope this helps. Looking forward to your reply.
We tried this but it did not help. We noticed this file is under the OpenPlant folder. We are using AutoPLANT piping and running a BOM straight from there we get this issue. We do get the same issue if we run a BOM from this or Isometrics.
We also tried a fresh install on a fresh Windows installation and it is coming up with the same issue.
Not sure if this helps or not, but here is the order we installed the programs on a fresh Windows 10 installation:
We use AutoPLANT, Isometrics, Equipment, and ProSteel. (I may have the names incorrect since it has been a few years since we updated)
