- Erection sheets are used to place 2D erection views on.
- Erection views are typically placed onto erection sheets before they can be printed. You can, however, print an erection view directly -- even before it has been placed onto a sheet -- by using File > Print .
|An example of a sheet outline that is used as a template for erection sheets. Notice that this sheet outline has logos and a border, but not a bill of material.|
1 . The " New... " button can be found on the drawing selection window for the Drawing Editor . Use any one (1) of the following methods to open the drawing selection window:
Method 1 : Home > Launch Drawing Editor .
Method 2 : Drawing Editor > File > Open ( Ctrl + o ) .
2 . The drawing selection window opens.
2a : Select the following drawing type: Erection sheets .
2b : Press the " New... " button.
3 . Type in the " Drawing name " (up to 61 characters) that you want to give the erection sheet. Then press " OK ."
5 . The newly created erection sheet opens. Except for those graphics from the sheet outline, the new sheet is totally blank. You need to Save it to have a permanent copy made of it.
- Before erection views are printed, they are typically placed onto erection sheets. This can be done using Objects > Sheet Items > Add in the Drawing Editor . Shown below is an erection view that has been placed directly onto an erection sheet using Sheet Item Add .
|The big advantage of placing an erection view as a sheet item is that any changes made to the erection view (including its redetailing or changes in its piecemarks) are automatically updated on the sheet.|
|More than one erection view can be placed as a sheet item on the same sheet, and each sheet item can have a different " Viewport " and a different " Scale " as shown in this example. The insets to the right of the sheet item that uses the ' Extents ' viewport are drawn at a larger scale to emphasize details that might have been otherwise missed.|
- An alternative way to add erection views to erection sheets is to add them as job standard details. You can do this by using Edit > Save Standard Detail (again, in the Drawing Editor ) to create a job standard detail of an erection view and then place it on the erection sheet using File > Add Standard Detail .
|The insets with the yellow borders in this illustration were created by using Edit > Clip , then using Edit > Save Standard Detail to save them as job standard details. Note that a similar effect was more easily created in the example above , by adding the same drawing as a sheet item three different times.|
