The Management Console allows you to manage your drawing and report documents with folders, components, and packages. The panel is located on the left side of the application window, as shown in the following plant mode example.

To add folders, components, and packages to the Management Console, right-click the top level or an existing folder, and select New on the shortcut menu to display the Add Component dialog box. For more information on the New command, see any of the Drawings and Reports user's guides:

  • Orthographic Drawings User's Guide

  • Isogen Isometric Drawings User's Guide

  • Reports User's Guide

You can also manage documents, components, and packages in the 3D modeling tasks using the Tools > Drawings Console command. For more information, see the Common User's Guide.

When you first enter the Drawings and Reports task, the Management Console is empty except for the top-most level, the Model. You add Folders to the model, then begin adding components and packages to the folders you create. For example, you can add a folder and call it Equipment, then add the Imperial_Equipment Drawing package to the folder to create equipment drawings.

Delivered Components and Folders

Components provide the basic setup for a method of drawing.

The following components are shown on the General tab of the Add Component dialog box:

Delivered Component

Description

3D Model By Query

Creates a 3D Model By Query component in the Console. You can use the 3D Model By Query component to export 3D model data in bulk as CAD (SAT) files. The software uses a filter-based query to collect the objects and document them automatically. More information is available in the Orthographic Drawings User's Guide.

3D Model Data

Creates a 3D Model Data component in the Console. Right-click the component and select Setup on the shortcut menu to specify a filter that identifies the objects you want collected by the 3D Model Data component. You can use the 3D Model Data component to output SmartPlant Review files or CAD (SAT) files. More information is available in the Orthographic Drawings User's Guide.

MicroStation 3D DGN

Creates a MicroStation 3D DGN component in the Console. Right-click the component and select Setup from the shortcut menu to define the MicroStation seed file and style to use in generating the component documents. More information is available in the Orthographic Drawings User's Guide.

Folder

Creates an empty folder in the Console.

Drawings By Query Manager

Creates a Drawings by Query Manager in the Console. The Drawings by Query Manager is used in conjunction with other components, such as the Orthographic Drawing by Query and Isogen Isometric Drawing by Query components, to complete the query for objects in the model. The Drawings by Query Manager provides the filter that specifies the "where" side of the query. It tells the query "where" to look for the objects specified by the component "what" filter. More information is available in the Orthographic Drawings Users Guide and the Isogen Isometric Drawings User's Guide.

Generic Module Folder

Creates a Generic Module Folder in the Console. The Generic Module Folder component provides a way for you to run your custom VB modules to create custom drawings. You set up the Generic Module Folder component to use your custom VB module. More information is available in the Orthographic Drawings User's Guide.

Imported Folder

Imports an external Windows folder from a shared network folder into the Management or Drawing console. The imported folder can contain any type of file available in Windows. You can manage the imported documents, and publish them using Imported Folder menu options. For more information, refer to Drawings Folders in the Orthographic Drawings User's Guide.

Composed Drawings

Creates a Composed Drawing component in the Console. Composed drawings are orthographic drawings created in a 3D task such as Common. The composed drawing component manages the composed drawings you create. More information is available in the Orthographic Drawings User's Guide.

Orthographic Drawings by Query

Creates an Orthographic Drawings by Query component in the Console. The Orthographic Drawing by Query component allows you to create drawings for many objects in the model all in the same manner. This component does not require physical volumes in the model. The software uses a filter-based query to collect the objects and document them automatically. More information is available in the Orthographic Drawings User's Guide.

Isogen Isometric Drawings by Query

Creates an Isogen Isometric Drawings by Query component in the Console. You create an isometric drawing by associating an Isogen Isometric Drawing by Query component to a Query Manager. The Isogen Isometric Drawing by Query component specifies the "what" portion of the query, while the Query Manager specifies the "where." More information is available in the Isogen Isometric Drawings User's Guide.

Spreadsheet Reports

Creates a Spreadsheet Report component in the Console. More information is available in the Reports User's Guide.

Search Folder

Creates a Search Folder in the Console. Search Folders allow you to search for documents based on common properties such as out-of-date status, approval, or documents that have been published to a certain contract in integrated environment. More information is available in the Orthographic Drawings User's Guide.

Volume Drawings

Creates a Volume Drawings component in the Console. The Volume Drawing component uses a template to create drawings. You can place a view on the template and associate the view with a view style to control the output. To define the contents of the view, you create a drawing volume in the model. More information is available in the Orthographic Drawings User's Guide.

In marine mode, the following component is found on the Ship tab of the Add Component dialog box:

Delivered Component

Description

Drawings by Rule

Creates a Drawing by Rule component in the Console. The component allows you to create empty drawings by rule. For more information, see the Orthographic Drawings User's Guide.

Delivered Packages

Packages contain components that have been further defined with view template, styles, queries, and filters to create specific types of drawings. These packages are shown on other tabs of the Add Component dialog box. They are organized by discipline such as Electrical or Structural. For more information on the delivered packages, see:
