It’s been two years the last time I update this blog. WordPress almost delete the blog. Thankfully I can update now. I notice that there are people who were having problems in purchasing the macro. I’ll update soon.
Current isometric extraction process:
1. Go to isodraft
2. Select the pipe
3. Extract the isometric and produce .plt files and .dxf files
4. Convert to PDF files from dxf files
5. Repeat the process for other pipes
What can IsoPro do to help you:
1. Extract the isometric drawings in Design module
2. Automatically produce isometric drawings in PDF
3. Multiple pipes extracted at one time
4. Option to produce dxf, matreial and bolt files

This macro works this way
1. First you need to create a box for area to be selected in COG report. This box can be enclosing a deck, an area or the entire model. Set this box in the Clip Box.
2. Set the hierarchy you want to include in the report. This hierarchy can be the entire model, a site or a zone. If you want to include more than 1 site, first you need to create a GPSET (group set) and add the sites.
3. Create a box or an equipment as the COG origin. Position the COG origin in the correct location. All COG will be taken with respect to the COG origin set in this column.
Run the report and you will get the weight for the area. For components that have missing cmpref will be reported in a file.

Whenever we extract iso from design module, if there is previewisostd.txt file in the project xxxiso std folder
then it looks for it first rather than looking for C:/aveva/plant/——-/pdmsui/dflts/std
I have deleted previewisostd.txt from the project folder, so now it looks for the default pdms path and its working fine
To create a new top level element in a specific database there is a DB keyword available in the syntax of the ‘NEW’ command as follows:
NEW element_type element_name DB database_name
where element_name is again optional and where the database_name is expressed as a fully qualified database name, i.e. team/database.
The following command will create a new SITE named /MYSITE in the MYTEAM/MYDB database.
NEW SITE /MYSITE DB MYTEAM/MYDB
