I-View CAD creates three output files for Smart Review:

Output file type

Description

.dgn

MicroStation design file that contains the graphical elements.

.drv

Label file that contains the attributes (tags).

.dri

File that references the .dgn and drv files. You open the .dri file in Smart Review to view the generated model

In Smart Review, an attribute is data that you assign to provide additional information about an object. Each attribute is associated with an object's graphic cells. Together, these graphic cells form the model. You can access and view pipeline and component attributes using the commands on the Tags menu.

Query pipeline attributes

You can query pipeline attributes only if a pipeline placeholder exists. The creation of pipeline placeholders is controlled by the Use pipeline placeholders setting on the Attributes tab. You must select this setting prior to model generation.

  1. Open a generated model in Smart Review. For more information, see Open and view a model in Smart Review.

  2. Click Tags > Display > All.

  3. Double-click the pipeline placeholder:

    The software opens the Tags dialog box and displays the pipeline tag data.

Query component attributes

  1. Open a generated model in Smart Review.

  2. Click Tags > Display > All.

  3. Double-click the component:

    The software opens the Tags dialog box and displays the component tag data.

  • The options that you select in the Attribute Creation and External Data sections on the Attributes tab prior to model generation determine the identity and the quantity of the attributes that the software displays.

  • For more information about querying tags, refer to the Help documentation delivered with Smart Review.
