It is possible to generate I-model from inside AutoPLANT. The I-model generated can be used for data transfer according to user requirements. This feature from inside AutoPLANT helps you quickly create the I-models from one interface.
Prerequisite: AutoPLANT I-model composer installed on the machine.
Case 1 : i-Model for Review ,Markup, Visualization and Clash Detection.
The option of “For Review, Markup, Visualization, Clash Detection” is used whenever the i-models are to be used for reviewing the 3D model , markups for revisions or modification to be done in the model, visualization and conduction of clash detection for the models.
Case 2 : i-Model for Interoperability.
The option of “For Interoperability” is used whenever the i-models are to be used for interoperability operations for generation of Orthographic Drawings.
Functionality of Other Options:
Data from Model - Gets values from the Model
Data from project database - Gets values from the project database if available. This takes significantly more time but is needed if the data in the project database is changed independently of the model.
Create fasteners - Adds fasteners to the i-model. This is recommended for interoperability.
Force republishing of all files - When enabled, this option forces the master file and its reference files to be republished, even if they have not been modified since the last time they were published. By default, this option is disabled and a file is not republished if it has not been modified. (The date of the file(s) are checked.)
This option is useful in cases where the original files have not been modified, but configuration files or project databases that affect the published file have.
Create a package- Creates a single package for multiple i.DGN files. You need to select this option to enable the rest of the controls in this dialog. When a package is created, it will generate i.DGN files for the active drawing and all referenced drawings
Package - Sets the name of the packaged file and saves the file with an i.DGN extension.
Click the magnifying glass icon to open the Browse for Folder dialog to select a folder location for the output file.
Protection- Sets the type of protection for the packaged file.
Rights- Sets the privileges for the packaged file.
Expires- Choose an expiration date to completely lock the file after a certain date, regardless of the rights or protection. Click the Choose Expiration Date icon to open the calendar. After you select a date, click anywhere outside the calendar to close it.
