  1. In Smart Isometrics, open a piping object data (POD) file or create a new one.

  2. Click SmartPlant > Publish.

    The SmartPlant menu is enabled only if you have registered the active project.

    The Generate Drawings dialog box displays.

  3. Click OK in the Generate Drawings dialog box.

  4. After drawing generation completes, click Close on the Drawing Generated dialog box.

    To review the isometric drawing using your default drawing viewer software, click View Drawing before closing the dialog box.

  5. Click Yes in the Publish to SmartPlant Foundation message box.

    If the drawing output format is something other than what the publish operation supports, the message box is not displayed and the publishing stops.

  6. Log in to SmartPlant Foundation, and then click OK.

    The Publish dialog box displays.

  7. Select a Revision scheme, and then click OK.

    Revising a document is compulsory in order to publish. If you attempt to publish a document without revising, the software prompts you to assign a revision. For more information, see Revise a POD document.

    If the publish is successful, the software displays an informational message.

  • The SmartPlant Schema file must be checked into SmartPlant Foundation when you publish. If the publish operation fails, contact your SmartPlant Foundation system administrator to make sure the SmartPlant Schema is checked into SmartPlant Foundation.

  • After a successful publish, the software creates an attribute set called SPEnterprise Attributes on the Smart Isometrics piping data. This attribute set contains properties for the plant name, server name, and piping data and file unique identifiers. These attributes are used for subsequent Publish commands. After the attribute set is created and populated, the piping data is automatically saved to store the information.

  • During the publish process, the software uses attribute set data to verify whether or not the piping data has been previously published. If it has, the software checks the plant and server to which the data was previously published against the current isometric project. If they do not match, the software displays a warning message advising that the piping data was previously published to a different plant and that if the data is published to the new plant it will be disassociated from the original plant.
