ORTHOGEN for Plant3D
OrthoGen’ s interface to Plant 3D’s data base selects properties from local SQl Lite or Network data bases. Using ACAD viewports allows auto annotations to be integrated with 2D embellishment work. Since this is a standard ACAD environment. OrthoGen integrates with existing user developed commands, details, standards, and block libraries.
Create ortho dwg at a glance
OrthoGen® is a software program that streamlines projects by automating orthographic drawing production by eliminating repetitive tasks, pin-pointing plant objects and locations, protecting data integrity, sharing drawings and data, and producing fast-consistent design drawings. Automatic drawings generated from 3D models are created in a fraction of the time previously spent and they accurately and consistently reflect model conditions.

Simple User Interface
OrthoGen has a new simple user interface. OrthoGen 10 is designed to be used in multi languages with AutoCAD or MicroStation and works with S3D, PDS and CADWorx plant design models. Production users can review style settings but cannot change them allowing the enforcement of project standards. Users must have Administrator privileges to change settings.
Pre-defined drawing styles
OrthoGen is delivered with many sample styles for all disciplines. Styles can be easily created and customized to project standards. Styles can be saved/loaded from “INI files”.
Styles are created as INI files and managed in a simple Discipline-Annotation Style folder structure. Using the Style Editor you have access to all OrthoGen settings and options. This allows for detailed customization without programming.
