Controls the generation of the cut piece list and corresponding cut piece identifiers (numbers or letters) at appropriate positions along the plotted pipeline. An option to have cut piece identifiers (numbers or letters) starting at 1 or A on each isometric drawing as opposed to each pipeline is also controlled with this option switch.

Cut piece numbers can be output on the isometric drawing in a variety of alternative enclosure types which are controlled by switch positions 7 and 8.

There are two types of cut piece lists: the old style, which has limited information, and the new style, which has full information.

Finally, when using imperial units you have an option to list the cut lengths on the new style cut piece list in a decimal inches format. This option is in addition to the regular value in the LENGTH column.

Switch Settings

The following settings are available for Option Switch 2:

SWITCH POSITION 1 - Cut Piece Numbering and Cut Piece List On / Off Control

0

Suppress the generation of the cut piece list and cut piece identification numbers/letters. This is the default setting.
