This article will explain how X, Y, Z coordinates can be included in reports for each component in OpenPlant Modeler. By default, coordinates do not show up in the reports but with the help of changes in schema this can be achieved.
NOTE: If you are working in Imperial projects, then expressions to calculate the X, Y, Z values would be different.For X it would be this.TRANSFORMATION_MATRIX.M03/304800For Y it would be this.TRANSFORMATION_MATRIX.M07/304800For Z it would be this.TRANSFORMATION_MATRIX.M11/304800 assuming that UOR is 304800.
Bentley's Product Advantage Group requests that you please confine any comments you have on this Wiki entry to this "Comments or Corrections?" section. THANK YOU!
Thanks Harpreet, great info.
You can find this transformation matrix in element information where M03 represents the X coordinate, M07 represents Y and M11 represents Z. And yes, you are right for imperial project this should be "this.TRANSFORMATION_MATRIX.M03/304800".
Hope this helps!
Thanks Harpreet, Can you provide some more description on what the parts of the expressing represent? Does this need to be modified when working with an imperial project with a UOR of 304800?
