Editing the column layout and reported fields in Isometric Tables is a big part of customizing Isometric deliverables. This post walks through some of that customization.
Start by opening the Project Setup either by right clicking on the project name in the Project Manager and then selecting Properties or Project Setup can be located in the Home ribbon tab under the Project Manager Panel drop-down.
Once the Project Setup is open in the selection tree on the left hand side expand “Isometric DWG Settings” and select “Title Block and Display”. Ensure that the correct iso style is selected in the drop-down at the top of the screen and the press “Setup Title Block”.
That will open up the iso.dwt file which is the template file of the iso border. In the Ribbon you will see the option for “Table Setup”.
That option will open the Table Setup dialogue box. Here you can make changes to any of tables either placed or not placed in the BOM (Bill of Materials).
Notice the Table type drop-down list where you can flip between the various table categories.
Here you can re-arrange the order of the already placed columns with a simple left click hold, then dragging it to the desired location. If there is a field in your class definitions that is not currently shown but you would like to add it, press the “Add Column...” button to bring up a dialogue box where you can select the desired property. Once you have selected the property and pressed ok it will be added to the Table Layout.
The newly added field will not show up until you check the box below it. This is also a good opportunity to move the column to the desired location within the Table.
Note: Once placed, it may be necessary to adjust the column widths so that the header can be read and so that there is enough room in the field for the data being reported.
