Named Boundaries and Plan Production

We are having some issues with understanding the ORD Plan Production tool set and controlling level overrides in the drawing or sheet models.  When we create a series of plan and profile sheets, we start with a fresh 2D seed file, reference in the necessary reference files, turn on/off levels or set level overrides for the plan set’s needs in the design model, and then use the ORD Named Boundaries workflow to create the drawing models and sheet models.

 

The problem that we are having is none of the level overrides are being honored in the resulting drawing or sheet models.  Additionally, if we need to make any changes to the level on/off settings or additional level overrides from the host design model, none of these changes are dynamically shown on the drawing or sheet models.

 

We typically have hundreds of plan and profile sheets for projects and having to manually set the level on/off or overriding symbology is not a workflow option.  Our preferred workflow would be to have a single design model used for controlling all of the sheet model level settings.

 

Is this a known problem with ORD Plan Production?  Thanks in advance for any help.

  • I believe I can answer one of your questions.

    In the default sheet seed definitions, the presentation of the model referenced into the drawing model (not the sheet model) has Level Overrides turned off by default.

    The moment I corrected the presentation of the reference, everything came out as intended.

    Regarding the displayed levels not coming through on all sheets, I'm at a loss.
