Bentley AutoPlant Isometrics V8i

Isometric Drawing Software - AutoPLANT Isometrics From Bentley

AutoPLANT Isometrics

AutoPLANT Isometrics can produce intelligent isometric drawings using spec-driven piping design with advanced routing and editing features. You can also create intelligent isometrics from your AutoPLANT PIPING models with the AUTO-ISO utility. The automatic generation of isometrics includes the capability to automatically generate and place annotation, dimensions, Bill of Materials, and to select drawing data manually or in batch mode. You can also use AUTOISO to separate your ISOMETRICS’ drawings into separate drawing sheets.

Who Uses

AutoPLANT Products are used around the world on projects ranging from small retrofits and expansions to large, full-scale facility design and construction:

  • Oil and Gas
  • Alternative Fuels
  • Power Generation
  • Chemical
  • Water/ Wastewater
  • Food and Beverage
  • Pulp and Paper
  • Life Sciences
  • Offshore

Owner-operators and EPCs use Bentley’s AutoPLANT Products in support of all phases of the plant lifecycle:

  • Automatic Isometric Generation - The AutoPLANT Isometrics V8i module is fully integrated with the AutoPLANT Piping module, the integrity of the data used to create the piping isometrics is ensured.
  • Manual Isometric Drafting - Generate isometrics from scratch. Input and placement options are the same as those employed by the AutoPLANT Piping V8i application, with component information that is based on an external specification database. Use the manual isometrics mode to edit and perform cleanup on isometrics created using the Auto-Iso function.
  • Multiple Material Reporting Formats - Accurate material quantities, obtained directly from the database, can be summarized in several formats to suit a variety of requirements.

Bentley AutoPlant Isometrics has a Report Writer module that provides a means to generate a set of external reports on the data contained in the current drawing, or across a range of drawings. AutoPLANT Isometrics makes extensive use of the Crystal Reports™ run-time engine to process data in various external formats. You can customize reports or create your own.

Program Architecture - Customization

Bentley AutoPlant Isometrics take full advantage of the latest AutoCAD ARX technology. Within these ARX applications, Bentley has implemented a Basic Script engine. All Isometrics components and most dialogs are defined in open Basic files for easy modification. The system architecture enables a user with a solid foundation in Visual Basic for applications programming language to modify almost any aspect of the component placement process, to create new components, or add new functions to the system.

Flexible Working Modes

The V8i (SELECTseries 3) Edition introduces a new Briefcase mode technology. This allows designers that do not need the work-sharing features of the Project to work independently with less administration and setup. Using the same technology large projects can easily move models between projects or model disconnected from the project or restore individual project models from backup.

Automatic Weld and Spool Numbering

Automatic weld and spool numbering enables you to specify the weld numbers and/or spool numbers in the model. The application will prompt you for a selection of components to number, the starting number, and the starting component. It then traverses the pipe using connectivity and numbers each weld. You have the option to skip previously numbered welds. When the program reaches a branch, the program prompts for the branch to follow. For spools, the program has a set of rules to determine a new spool where there is a field component (such as a valve), a field weld,
or at a flange.
