Isogen Isometric Drawings

  • For Isogen Isometric Drawings, the name of the drawing document becomes the prefix for all of the files. For example, if the drawing document name is My_Pipeline, the saved file names become: My_Pipeline.sha, My_Pipeline.pcf, and so on.

  • For Isogen Isometric Drawings, a file is created for each sheet in the drawing with [drawing name]_[sheet name] as the filename. For example, if the drawing My_Pipeline contains Sheet1 and Sheet2, two files will be saved with the names My_Pipeline_Sheet1 and My_Pipeline_Sheet2.
