Standard Database for Smart Reference Data Version

SDB has added the Symbol Library Manager to add and manage all S3D symbols. SDB contains S3D Piping Data referring to Dot Net Symbol DLLs, ProgIDs, and Symbol Icons only.

Managing Tool Versions

In the Administration > Document Management > Tools Version Management screen, users can create an effective version that is the main version of an interface (example: Smart 3D 2014-2019) and associate multiple product versions to it. The effective version is used while associating product versions to a document in the Document Manager screen.

For example, if Smart 3D is an interface with the effective version Smart 3D 2014, users can group the product versions Smart 3D 2014, Smart 3D 2014 R1, Smart 3D 2016, Smart 3D 2018 and Smart 3D 2019 and associate them to the effective version; Smart 3D 2014-2019.

Document Manager

In the Administration > Document Management > Document screen, users can add documents (Symbol DLLs) using the drag and drop feature or Browse. All the documents should be set with effective product version.

To upload the documents/files:

  1. Go to Administration > Document Management, and click Documents.

  2. Click Edit grid and add a new row and drop the required symbol DLL onto the new row. Assign the effective S3D version from the LOV and save the same.

Managing Symbol Library

In Smart Reference Data Plus, a symbol library is a set of symbols grouped together for easy access and maintenance. Users can also organize the symbols in hierarchical order as required.

To add a symbol library:

  1. Go to Administration > Document Management, and click Symbol Library Management.

  2. Click Edit grid and add a new Row.

  3. In the Symbol Library Name cell, type a name for the symbol library.

  4. In the Symbol Library Type cell, click Selection List (LOV) and select a type.

    Symbol Library Version will be required when the Symbol Library type is set to S3D 3DSymbol. Symbol Version shall be captured from symbol DLLs only.

  5. In the Symbol Library Short Description cell, type a short description for the symbol library.

  6. In the Symbol Library Description cell, type a long description for the symbol library.

Optionally, click Selection List (LOV) in the Parent Symbol Library Name cell and select a parent symbol library name. Associate a parent symbol library name only if users need to create a hierarchy for the symbol library and this can be invoked by pressing Shift+Ctrl+F9.
