I tried to overlay a DM isometric over one of the xrefs we got from a client.  I simply rotated the xref until it roughly matched up however the scales seemed to be off.  Is there a specific scale that I should change the xref to?  Any help would be greatly appreciated or maybe this is something that cannot be done.

Our isometric is to scale so it should work, though I am wondering how you are tilting the xref to get it to match the isometric viewpoint. You might need to scale the xref to account for that. I'm not sure what exactly it would need to be. If the xref is tilted right, a quick DIST command (without snapping) should help you figure out what factor you need to use.

I have gone to using text to define the objects at the end of the pipes.  Trying to line up all the individual fixtures is too much of a hassle.
