Adding ISOGEN Data to Fittings

You can export piping and tubing data as a PCF file, for use in other piping applications such as ISOGEN.

You can assign the following custom properties to export to the PCF file:

Name

Location

Description

Optional or Required

IsogenSkey

Fitting part file,
typically as a document property, but can be configuration-specific.

The SKEY value in the PCF file. Examples: FLSW, FLWN, TEBX, etc. See your ISOGEN application for more details.

Required

IsogenBom

Fitting part file,
typically as a configuration-specific property.

Part number (ITEM-CODE) in the PCF file, used for BOM generation in the ISOGEN application. If not found, then the software uses  SWBomPartno or the configuration name.

Optional

IsogenDescription

Fitting part file,
typically as a configuration-specific property.

Description (DESCRIPTION) in the PCF file, used for BOM description in the ISOGEN application. If not found, then the software uses  SWBomPartno or the configuration name.

Optional

IsogenComponentType

Fitting part file,
typically as a document property, but can be configuration-specific.

The software determines the basic component types (flange, tee, cross, elbow, reducer, eccentric reducer, valve) by analyzing the component features (such as the number of RPoints and CPoints and their associated pipe diameters). This does not accommodate all possible component types, so for any other type of component (such as a union, instrument, or reducing elbow), specify the type using this property.

Optional

IsogenAttribute1,
IsogenAttribute2,
IsogenAttribute3,
etc.

Route assembly file,
as document properties.

These properties are mapped to attributes in the PCF file and can be used to transfer any additional data to the ISOGEN application. The assignment of data to attribute is configured in the ISOGEN application.

TIP: You can add these properties as custom properties in the template for route assembly documents so that in the route assembly, you only need to add the values.

NOTE: You cannot skip a property in the sequence. For example, you cannot create IsogenAttribute1 and IsogenAttribute2, skip IsogenAttribute3, then create IsogenAttribute4. When the software encounters an unused attribute number it will not process any further attributes. (The value of the property can be empty if not used.)

Optional
