Isometric Piping Stencils: Example Drawings
« on: January 13, 2009, 02:17:16 PM »
Here are a couple of drawings compiled using the "Isometric Stencils" for Yoda

They have an impact for a trainee as you can draw the piece of plant kit as it is viewed on site

Thankyou Junichi for your positive comments, they could not have been drawn without your stencils.

I have been using Visio since version 4.1 and when I found your stencils & fonts it gave me a new impetus to try and create some novel training material, although I am now coming to the end of my working life, I still enjoy using the program.

Attached another drawing you wish to view

I have been working for some time creating cut away diagrams in Visio, see the second attachment,(although it does not show up well as a twice printed pdf to reduce the size).

 I now have to work out how to create the same type of cut away using Isometrics

Good to here from you again, I am a regular visitor to your web site as you always have interesting program improvements 

Here are some of your basic shapes with some minor changes, e.g. I have taken the white background off the lines

Also thankyou for the positive comments Visio Guy

For anyone interrested I have attached a drawing of how I put together the heat exchanger ( zoom in on the joints to view more detail)

Now I am vindicated!

I've received flack over on the Visio Guy blog from some naysayers who think I post too many articles on how to make "pretty" graphics with Visio.

The stuff you guys are uploading is truly outstanding!

Thanks all!

Vojo
Thanks for the input, your drawing is an excellent example of what can be achieved using Junichi Yoda's stencils. It never ceases to amaze me what can be achieved with Visio.

My aim is to try and use the program in an attempt to increase the learning of a complex chemical process by splitting it into its basic elements and making a drawing as easy to understand as possible for new personnel.

In my line of business there were only Autocad P&ID drawings which can be very difficult to read and understand, until I started using Visio to create simplified diagrams of small sections of a complex process which plant personnel find user friendly and increase the learning circle.

I am a silver surfer who has learned what I know from experience using the program, I am always eager to learn from others as I willing to share what limited knowledge I have gained and I see from your postings you are a talented Visio user, willing to share your knowledge.

thanks for kind words.   learned from the school of hard knocks driven by a need to convey complex computer configs (BladeCenter packs alot of stuff in a small package....hence the config is always
a discussion point)
