The CADWorx interface enables you to export specifications and their required detail data, so that the specifications can be imported into a CADWorx project that can be used by the CADWorx application. This document describes how to configure the CADWorx interface of Intergraph Smart® Reference Data and how to run exports from Smart Reference Data.

The workflow is as follows:

  • You export the required data from Smart Reference Data (SRD) into text files. These files are zipped in an archive that is offered to you for download.

  • The CADWorx Importer loads these catalog and specification data files into a project file, which can be opened in the CADWorx application and reviewed in the Spec Editor.

The following files are created by the interface:

  • SizeTable

  • MaterialTable

  • ScheduleTable

  • n x WallthicknessTable$<TableName>

  • EndTypeTable

  • n x CmpTabnnn$<ComponentType>

  • SpecHeader

  • SpecSchedule

  • SpecItem

  • SpecBranch

The following template sheets are delivered with the software and are installed by installation scripts to provide hardcoded CADWorx values with their IDs:

  • EndTypeClass

  • ReducingSelectionType

  • DefaultFlangeTypeInSpec

  • BOMType

  • ColorIndex

  • OptionalComponent

These template data rows are fixed ‘system codelists’ for use in LOVs (list of values). You should not change the meaning of the key numbers. The sheets do not participate in any export job, and CADWorx will not read them.

Generally, the interface is configurable, which means the source where the data is derived from in SRD can be customized. This document was written based on the assumption that the interface-specific catalog data is maintained in templates, and the specification-related data is derived from the standard SRD tables. The installation scripts that come with the software install pre-configured content that is based on this assumption.

  • Catalog-related data is maintained on the CADWORX 10.08 screen.

  • Specification-related data is maintained on the common SRD screens.

It may happen that customers want to deviate from this concept to set up their own rules. Even the SDB (Standard Database) CADWorx setup delivered by Intergraph may be, for example, based on content that is not maintained in templates.

The following topics provide detailed information about the different sheets that are transferred to CADWorx.
