Importing background

Legend
Legend

Hello,

usually in my models I use backgrounds taken from Autocad.

I have two issue:

 

1. After importing the drawing, I have a lot of blank space between the event controller (top left of the page) and the actual background (usually PlantSim put it completely on the right or on the bottom of the model).

 

2. I don't know yet how to import drawing with good proportion. In fact, sometimes to obtain a good shape I need to enlarge the background size. In this way the normal dimension of icons is too much bigger then dimension of drawing objects.

Regards

Alessio

1. sometimes there are some remainings (points, line fragments) outside of the drawing area in AutoCAD, try to delete all objects, you dont need left and on top of the drawing;

2. you need to test, the size of the background image is limited; if you need images for the objects in the same scale you could place all e.g. MU-pictures under the drawing (in AutoCAD) and copy them later from the resulting background image in Plant Simulation
