Creating new and re-defining existing ISOGEN Symbol Keys (SKEYs) in CADWorx using Symbols Editor
(Lab with Matt Worland)

All components output on ISOGEN isometric drawings are defined by a unique code called a symbol key (SKEY). ISOGEN uses an in-built SKEY library to draw the various piping components on the isometric. Many of the symbols in the library can be changed or redefined, whereas others are fixed by the program and cannot. Every component in a CADWorx specification needs to have a default ISOGEN SKEY assigned. Sometimes you may want a different representation of the component on the final isometric. To do this, you can either redefine the library symbol if it can be changed, or you can create an entirely new symbol and substitute it for the default symbol. This session will teach you all you need to know about ISOGEN SKEYs. You’ll get hands-on with the latest Symbol Editor version, using it to create an entirely new SKEY, plus change an existing SKEY for a component. 

Enhanced Isometric Deliverables: Advanced ISOGEN capabilities in CADWorx projects (Lab with Werner Theron)
Starting with the basics of how ISOGEN works in CADWorx, this session will also cover some advanced capabilities of ISOGEN that CADWorx users can take advantage of to improve the quality and content of their isometric deliverables.

SmartPlant Interoperability: Delivering Intelligent CADWorx Models to Intergraph Smart 3D Projects (Lab with Paul Martin)
Joint venture projects typically involve a number of contractors. Projects primarily executed in Smart 3D, will still need to receive models - process units, design packages, skid units, etc. – produced by smaller contractors, designed in other systems and having different formats. Ultimately, all models need to be brought together into a single view to enable pipe routes to be completed, ties to be made, hook-ups at interfaces to be checked, and to generate final isometrics and bills of materials. Supporting this workflow, and ultimately providing a comprehensive model handover to the client, SmartPlant Interoperability, provided via SmartPlant Interop Publisher, enables Intergraph’s own and third-party model formats to be brought together in Smart 3D. In this session, you’ll step through the entire process to see how easy it is to introduce an intelligent CADWorx model into an existing Smart 3D environment.

Leveraging tools interfaces to create data in CADWorx E&I (Lab with Ron Williams)
This is an overview covering a workflow which begins by pushing data (loops and loop elements) from CADWorx P&ID into CADWorx E&I and leveraging that data to create instrument loop diagrams and electrical loop diagrams in CADWorx E&I. During the workflow, we’ll make some data changes and additions to the loop elements, which we’ll then push back into CADWorx P&ID. This show the bi-directionality of the interface between the tools.
