AUTOMATIC ORTHOGRAPHIC DRAWING
GENERATION SOLUTION FOR PDS
PDS Ortho-Draw is an automatic annotation and dimensioning
solution used to produce project deliverables from PDS physical
(3D) models. The standalone solution provides a flexible generation
environment for users to support various drawing conditions
in the field.
PDS Ortho-Draw drastically reduces drawing generation time.
This means that you can create plan and section view drawings
that conform to your standards in a fraction of the time. With
direct database connections, automatic expressions, batch
processing, and integrated editing tools, you can reduce drawing
production time by 80-90 percent when compared to traditional
work processes for creating orthographic deliverables.
INTEGRATED DRAWING MANAGEMENT
Drawing standards can be easily configured using an intuitive
interface that mimics typical production work processes.
All annotation and dimensioning parameters are stored and
controlled, so users can manage their orthographic drawing
configurations through an easy-to-use interface.
EASY TO MODIFY DRAWINGS
The “Smart Tag Editor” feature provides automated touch-up
services for post-drawing generation editing.
MULTI-PURPOSE, MULTI-DISCIPLINE DRAWING GENERATION
In addition to the piping orthographics, PDS Ortho-Draw offers
the ability to generate orthogonal arrangements for plant layouts.
Users can produce electrical and HVAC layout drawings. PDS
Ortho-Draw provides a variety of orthogonal and isometric
drawings with its multi-discipline options.
PDS Ortho-Draw enables quality control on collaborative global
worksharing projects. Orthographic drawings are generated using
a standard process. All annotation and dimensioning qualities
are consistent across multiple disciplines and distributed project
PDS 3D MODELS
PDS Ortho-Draw provides extensibility of PDS drawing generation
functions. Also, users can generate orthographic drawings automatically
from any PDS version efficiently and quickly.
MULTIPLE, SECTION, AND ISOMETRIC VIEWS
PDS Ortho-Draw can generate dimensions and annotations on
two or more views at a time. Not only plan view but also section
and isometric views can be generated.
ANNOTATION, SYMBOLOGY, AND DIMENSIONING OPTIONS
To support various drawing settings and styles of projects
and companies, PDS Ortho-Draw provides various drawing
generation options to help users generate the right drawings
at the right time.
Annotation options define the items that are annotated in the
drawings and expression formats. Users can define which 3D
design data is expressed by using data mapping and filter conditions.
Also, format and symbology settings define the expression
formats of items such as string formats, color, and font.
Dimension options define the external and internal dimension
styles of drawing views. Users can define dimension formats like
dimension unit, expression styles, and dimensioning rules.
Common options define the drawing generation styles. Users
can define one or more option profiles. This is very helpful for the
setup and control of various drawing generation schemes. Also,
each option profile can be exported and imported.Common options
include basic drawing annotation and expression methods.
