Defining Source File Presentation Settings

A source file presentation settings component specifies which InterPlot settings file(s) to use (if any) to create the renditions. InterPlot settings files can define such things as the plot area, size/scale, rotation, pen table, design script, and so on. InterPlot settings files are created and maintained using the settings file editor delivered with ProjectWise InterPlot Organizer.

To define a source file presentation settings component, you first create your settings files, and then you specify which settings file(s) you want to use when you create a new source file presentation settings component.

For each Source File Presentation Settings component you create, you will define:

  • a settings file that is mapped to all data types

  • whether or not an alternate settings file is mapped to DWG files

You can create as many Source File Presentation Settings components as you need. Once the components are created, you can modify the properties of each component, and you can delete components that are no longer needed.

In Bentley i-model Composition Server Administrator, users can add these components to the job as needed on the Rendition Settings tab of the Job Builder dialog. In ProjectWise Explorer, users will select a rendition profile, and then select which of the available Source File Presentation Settings components they want to use.
