ISOGEN® for Developers

How ISOGEN Works

ISOGEN must be passed a description of the pipeline for which a piping isometric is required. A pipeline is a connected set of pipe, piping components (valves, flanges, gaskets), and ancillary information (supports and end conditions). From this data, ISOGEN lays out the piping isometric, dimensions it, and tabulates the material list.

ISOGEN reads the Piping Component File (PCF). The PCF is a human readable text file containing physical and logical data on each piping object in the pipeline.

Therefore, the first step of integration is to create the PCF from the piping design system.
