AutoCad MEP-toggle off label curve rotation in isometric view

Recommended Posts

PlumberGoneVirtual

Has anyone yet figured out how to toggle off rotation of label-curve text so that it stays aligned with the orientation of the the object to which it is affixed when in isometric views? I know it can be done, as when I shift+mouse button 3D orbit my model the label curve text stays aligned until I stop the 3D orbit and the scene regens to now-rotated label curve text that maddeningly stays horizontal. It does not matter how I rotate or alter my UCS, the text always stays horizontal to the view, I want the text to stay aligned with the object to which it is affixed. How can I do this? Yes, I know that tags can rotate, but they don't auto-insert and they are not anchored to objects. I want my auto-inserted label curves to stay put.

 

Oh, and by the way, hello. I have benefitted many times from you-alls' wisdom here, I've just now got involved as google has let me down on this one and I hope that some mighty god of the xyz that dwelleth herein may deliver me from this label curve rotational blasphemy...that'd be great.

Has anybody figured out how to change the labels to align with the piping when in Isomtric. My labels align with the pipes on plan view but when I change to Isometric they simply don't align.

 

Thanks

I struggle with the same thing. I would also love to have the ability to have part tags "auto rotate" to an iso plane. For instants, air handling unit coil connections, I always show an iso plane shot, bit then I have to manually locate my own custom part and spool tags. Would love a solution to this :D

A nice Autodesk support engineer responded to my request. They are trying to figure the problem. Let's wait....:)

We've all moved on to Revit MEP instead. You should join in. :)
