Steps to Accomplish
IE_<EC class>=<symbol>, <scalertype>, <IE type>Symbol the symbol to use for the supportScalertype determines the length of the trunnion in the isometric, when not given the Scalertype default to DUMMYPIPE (40 mm length)IE_TYPE the internal type. This determines further handling in reporting etc. Default to CT_PIPE which makes it appear in the PIPE section of the report, give the support a pipe cut label etc
For example for Single pipe trunnion if add following entry in style.cfg file.
Internally this would be read as: IE_SINGLE_PIPE_TRUNNION=spt, DUMMY20, CT_SPT
Add following entry in Style.cfg file.
Add new scalertype entry in DUMMY20 in 'Symbolsize.def' file.
DEF B2CP DUMMY20 SEGLEN 20
Add new symbol 'spt' for Trunnion.
Create symbol as per requirement
Note: Following additional steps need to follow, if requirement must show Trunnion Support under support section in Isometrics bill of material.
Open Style.cfg file in notepad.
Add following entry.
IE_SINGLE_PIPE_TRUNNION=spt, DUMMY20, CT_SPT
Open ‘Repsortgroup.txt’ in notepad.
Add 'CT_SPT' under Support section.
