The following new features have been added in OpenPlant Support Engineering V8i SELECTseries 6 Refresh 2:
A new parameter FracPrecision has been added to the Project Parameters section of the Project Dashboard which lets the user determine fractional precision when dimensioning supports using imperial units. Previously, the dimensions were displayed using decimal precision. The default dimension precision value is set to 1/16" but the following values can be used: 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32 and 1/64.Refer link for details- To Display Dimension in Fractions Inside Support Drawing
Added new option to place BOM Callouts on a support drawing which provides flexibility for the user to be able to clean up existing leader lines.
Added new Support Elevation option to the Support Drawing task bar which lets the user place a callout on a support drawing displaying the elevation coordinates for the supported pipe.
A new parameter CamPosReltoPipe has been added to the Project Parameters section of the Project Dashboard which determines whether the defined support component views in the support drawing are view relative to the pipe supported, which is the default, or relative to the model.
A new parameter SplitGangSupport has been added to the Project Parameters grid of the Project Dashboard which defines how a ganged support is detailed when support drawing(s) are generated. The parameter gives the user the option to have all of the components for the ganged supports detailed in one drawing, or having the separate drawings for each component.Refer link for details- To Generate Drawing for Grouped Supports In OpenPlant Support Engineering
New parameters have been added to the Project Dashboard > Project Parameters which control how grids are searched and used to create a Key Plan on a Support DrawingRefer link for details- How to Display Support Key Plan in Support Drawing
The following new features have been added in OpenPlant Support Engineering V8i SELECTseries 6 Refresh:
Enhanced U-Bolt Placement - The U-Bolt functionality has been improved to automatically place u-bolts once the type and properties for the u-bolt has been defined.
RSS Reader - The reader has been added providing up to date news content regarding new releases, technical support information, upcoming conferences or seminars, and any other pertinent information about OpenPlant Products.
The following new features have been added in OpenPlant Support Engineering V8i SELECTseries 6:
OpenPlant Support Engineering works in conjunction with OpenPlant Model Server in a component based workflow by referencing out piping components or work breakdown structure elements in order to begin work and then checking in support components upon completion to OpenPlant Model Server. These support objects can then appear in isometrics generated from OpenPlant Isometrics Manager.
OpenPlant Support Engineering can also be used with referenced i-models from OpenPlant Modeler and structural tools such as ProStructures.
