Support for variable symbol shapes for user NOTE labels.
Cell name as expression in user label definitions.
Additional dimensioning options (sloped pipe annotations) have been added.
Rule based symbology options for isometrics output.
Multiple output formats can be configured for DGN 3D, DWG 2D, DXF 2D and DGN 2D.Refer link for details- How to Use the Isometric Cleanup When the Output Format is DWG
2D Export formats can be recreated after manual editing the iso.
New option to position specific symbols transversely in the pipeline (wall, floor, etc.).
Ability to change default tagging options for WELDID/PIPE CUTID.
New option to replace multiple coinciding welds with a single weld (e.g. slip-on flanges).

Additional dimensioning options (midpoint dimensioning, refrence dimensions and dimensioning of individual component types).
Schema version updated to 01.06
The Report Definition File now allows for functions to be included in the COLUMN expression when defining a report.Refer link for details- How to Add Piping Component Properties on Weld Reports
Add User Overrides functionality to let the user fine tune the isometric output at a fitting level.Refer link for details- How to: User Overrides for Isometric components
DB Query Enhancements: Added an option to add drawing attributes based on the most common value of a component attribute.Refer link for details- DBQuery : usage, logging, debugging
Added additional dimension options to the Isometric Style Configuration dialog via three tabbed sections:
Isometric Style Configuration - Dimensioning Primary
Isometric Style Configuration - Dimensioning Miscellaneous
Isometric Style Configuration - Dimensioning Sloping
Added functionality to save isometric to a DWG, DXF or 2D DGN format for Viewing.Refer link for details- How to Use the Isometric Cleanup When the Output Format is DWG
Added functionality to populate the Isosheets Grid from multiple lines and be able to run the isometrics output all at once.
Improved symbol for the flexible hose options which better represents the port directions and geometrical base shape. There is a quick setup process need to allow these hose options to work with older projects.
Added option to control whether you are prompted to select a new ManagedWorkspace path for every new OpenPlant Isometrics Manager session.
Support for installing and running OpenPlant Isometrics Manager without ProjectWise.
Enhancements in the IsoSheetGrid and IsometricProcessor interface
Support for changing the style before the Iso generation process or after a failure of the Iso generation.
Enhancements in the IsometricsManagement tab in the Isometrics Configuration dialog.
New layout of IsometricStyleConfiguration.
New Isometric Style Configuration options for Detail Sketches.Refer link for details- How To Add Detail Sketches in OpenPlant Isometrics Manager Using OpenPlant ModelerRefer link for details- How to Add Detail Sketches in OpenPlant Isometrics Manager Using AutoPLANT Modeler
New Isometric Style Configuration options for Tracing has been added to the Insulation andTracing page.
i-models backward compatibility: OpenPlant Isometrics Manager now has backward compatibility with respect to i-models that have been created with older versions of the OpenPlant schema.
Referenced i-models can now be processed: If an i-model was created from a drawing which referenced other models, then the data from the referenced models will also be processed and displayed in the resulting isometric. (For example: if you have a piping model with a referenced equipment model, then the equipment information will be included on the isometric.)
New Text Node Editor: an easy to use tool to define the locations for various project/drawing attributes in the drawing frame.Refer link for details- Modifying Text and Annotation Settings
Enhancements in the Properties dialog.
Label Modification tool: With the Label Modification tool the user can reposition labels in the generated isometric drawing if that is necessary for better readability
New templates - The cell templates have been reorganized and many template graphics have been added for easy creation of new isometric symbols
New Cells - Approximately 300 cells have been added to support new OpenPlant components.
