Spool Title-block Setup

Spool Title-block Setup

eVolve will automate the placement of Views, Schedules,Tags, and Dimensions while adhering to your company standard template.

Spool Window

eVolve looks for an annotation family named "Spool Window" to produce desired results. The placement of this family provides eVolve with view placement and view data necessary to automate results. Below is a sample placement of these families in a title-block and the results.

Parameters in Spool View family

  1. PlaceOnSheet - Yes/No - Going with the 80% rule when setting up the template that best fits your company, sometime an additional view is needed. Views can be generated but not placed using this option. If the detailer decides an additional view is needed, the view can be drag/drop onto the sheet.
  2. NumberTags - Yest/No - Do you want Number Tags placed in this View?
  3. NumberTagIgnoreId's - For additional controls over what elements get NumberTags, input the Service Type index (This is not CID) you want ignored. For example, 57,58,101, will NOT place and Item Number tag on Welds, Joints, or Couplings.
  4. Dimensions - Yest/No - Do you want dimensions placed in this View?
  5. View Template - View templates can be applied to the views that are being created. The input value must match identically to the View Template within the project.
    1. If this is a schedule, the input value much match identically the name of the schedule view template within the project that you want to use.
  6. View Title - Custom Name of the View/Schedule being created
  7. Height/Width - Dimensions of the Spool Window family, can type in values or use the drag nodes on the family to resize as needed
  8. View Type - Enable the supported view needed for that instance of the Spool Window.
  9. Parts List - Yes/No - DO NOT USE

    *if a View from View Type is enabled, Schedule Category will not function properly as they are conflicting entries.
