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.
Have you found a solution to this?
Hi Richie - Funny that you ask as I have a meeting tomorrow with Bentley to discuss ORD Plan Production issues and this problem is still on the list. As of now, the workflow that I mentioned on 10/27 is the only workaround that we have. Several of our DOT clients, who are working directly with Bentley on their workspace development, are also having this issue.
Please let me know what they say. The only workaround that I've found is that, in your drawing model is to turn your sheet reference file from live nesting to Copy Attachments seems to allow level overrides to be accounted for.
