Welding Symbols PIO's

Recommended Posts

Hi there:Why the welding symbols PIO's requires a plan projection in order to be placed in the drawing...???What if you like to annotate a welding sym. to an elevation view of a detail (layer linked by example)...???I think these PIO's will be more useful and efficient if they don't require the plan projection to be placed. Can you modify it's code in a future release...???Thank You!

Unfortunately, it is the nature of plug-in objects that they can only be placed in top-plan view. After placing the object, however, you can change the view to a 3D view and the welding symbol will look correct. If you are using layer links, place the welding symbol in the elevation layer, not one of the linked layers. After placing the welding symbol, change the view to what you want and move the symbol to the correct location.

I hope this helps.
