Material takeoff reporting (with implied materials) generates reports on PDS piping and equipment models involving data from the Design Database, Reference Database, Project Database, and Material Description Libraries. This type of report will also include implied mating data, such as bolts, gaskets, and welds by determining the connectivity of the piping and equipment. Format files used in this type of report primarily use A and B prefixed indices. This report is generated using Report Manager. These format files are also used by Drawing Manager to create drawing reports.
Sample Format -- The sample format files for creating MTO reports are: segment.fmt, piping_a.fmt through piping_g.fmt, weight.fmt, equip_a.fmt, and weldno.fmt and are delivered in the ~\pdreport\sample\ directory.
