PDMS - Symbol Substitution for GA

In PDMS, GAs are created from the 3D model. In a recent project, TDS created a function in PDMS Draft to substitute electrical equipments, components in GA with Electrical 2D symbol with tags and legends. These function was used successfully in a offshore project.

15th November 2017

Overhead lamps with different heights are modeled in 3D.

The General Arrangement drawing is produced in PDMS Draft.

The Symbol Substitution function is used to substitute the electrical lamps with symbols based on the type of the lamp. For this case, we use a UDA to identify different type of lamps.

The drawing will be tagged and a legend will be created.

Tags are created based on the user definable attributes and automatically arranged.

A Legend is created with the quantity totaled based on the height and Reference column.
