You can use the command line to import piping data into the software. Optionally, you can also use command line options to specify the isometric directory and project.

  1. Open the Command Prompt window.

  2. Type the required command line parameters, where /isodirectory and /project specify the isometric directory and project location in which the file is saved after import. For example, type:

    "SmartPlant Isometrics.exe" /import"C:\SampleIsoDir\IsometricsProject\Imports\Pipeline-T1.IDF" /isodirectory C:\SampleIsoDir /project PipingIsos

  3. Press Enter.

    The software imports the file and saves it to the target isometric directory and project that you specified in the command line parameters.

  • To display the Command Prompt window, click the Start button, and then type command in the Search box. Select Command Prompt in the search results listing.

  • The software accepts either / or -. For example, you can type /import or -import.

  • When specifying a file, you must include the full path location and filename.

  • You can specify multiple files on the command line. However, you must specify the full path location and filename for each file. In the following example, four files are to be imported: SG-T1.idf, SG-T2.idf, SG-T3.idf, and SG-T4.idf.

    "SmartPlant Isometrics.exe" /import
    "C:\SampleIsoDir\IsometricsProject\Imports\SG-T1.IDF"
    "C:\SampleIsoDir\IsometricsProject\Imports\SG-T2.IDF"
    "C:\SampleIsoDir\IsometricsProject\Imports\SG-T3.IDF"
    "C:\SampleIsoDir\Isometric\Imports\SG-T4.IDF"
    /isodirectory C:\SampleIsoDir /project PipingIsos

  • The software opens after the command is executed. To keep the software from opening, use the /silent command line option.
