Publishes the information in the selected documents. You can access the Publish Documents command by right-clicking a component or document.
The Publish and Update and Publish commands are available for the following types of documents:
3D Model Data (Intergraph Smart Review file type)
Orthographic Drawings, including Volume and Composed drawings (viewable file with links to data)
Isogen Isometric Drawings (viewable file with links to data)
Reports (viewable Microsoft Excel workbook file)
The viewable files created when you publish drawings and reports provide relationship links to the 3D Model Data. You must also publish the 3D Model Data to provide the navigation between the viewable files and the 3D Model Data.
The Publish > Update and Publish command updates and then immediately publishes the selected documents in one step. This command is available only if the model is registered with SmartPlant Foundation.
When you publish a 3D model, you must now enable the Scheduler and Loader in SmartPlant Foundation to make the 3D model data document retrievable. The load, consolidate, and merge tasks must complete successfully before the 3D model document can be retrieved.
Define the Discipline and Document Type properties to enable publishing for the documents. See Set properties for publishing documents.
For 3D model data, the Discipline and Document Type properties are already populated.
You may also want to specify documents to be revised, not published, or reserve revision numbers. See Revising.
To generate a list of documents that need to be published, you can use SmartPlant > Find Documents to Publish.
You can publish isometric drawings to SmartPlant Foundation in additional file formats other than the SHA drawing file format. These additional files along with the SHA drawing are generated by the update process. When publishing isometric drawings you can also publish other available data files and reports generated by the update process. See Published Files (S3D Supplementary).
