In OpenPlant Isometrics Manager, below process describes an overview of creating Title Block Attributes in ProjectWise to be used with the Title Block integration feature with Isometrics created using OpenPlant Isometrics Manager.
Tag Sets are used in MicroStation for title block integration to function properly with DGN files. Tag Sets must be a cell in the OpenPlant Isometrics Manager Seed file in order to convert over to an attributed block if the format output from OpenPlant Isometrics manager is DWG. Only then will the tags convert to AutoCAD attributes and then be usable between ProjectWise and AutoCAD title block attributes to be updated. If the format output is DGN, then the tag sets do not have to be cells. When copying a user’s DWG backing sheet into the OPIM seed file, the AutoCAD attributes will convert to MicroStation Tag Sets but must then be created as cells. A certain amount of prerequisite knowledge of creating ProjectWise attributes under attribute exchange rules using ProjectWise Administrator is required.
Note: These are not the exact steps but just an overview of what needs to be created in ProjectWise Administrator.
1. Using Projectwise Administrator, choose the Environments to modify and create attributes. In this example, Attributes REV_2, DESCRIPTION_2, DATE_2, CHK_2, DRWN_2, APP_2 and ENG_2 have been created.
2. Add the Attributes Graphically under the Attribute Layout as shown below. 3. Create an Attribute Class and the matching Attributes under the Attribute Exchange rules > AutoCAD TitleBlocks.
4. Here the exact Attribute Class and Attributes in MicroStation Title Blocks is created. User can copy and paste from one “Attribute Class” to another to save time.
B. Adding tag sets using OpenPLANT isometrics Manager
