The File > Export > PDS Export > Export Options command edits the [Product Folder]\Smart3D\3DRefData\SharedContent\Data\Translators\S3DPDSExport\PDSExportTranslator.ini file. You can also edit the PDSExportTranslator.ini file directly with any ASCII file editor.

Global

The Global settings are used to define the MicroStation symbology for each Smart 3D display aspect.

Auto Transfer

Automatically generates areas and models on export and loads the piping and structure files to their corresponding .dgn files. This option is cleared by default. You must have at least two S3P keys to successfully export a piping model using this option.

PDS Project Name

Select the PDS project name to which to transfer Smart 3D data. This option is available only if you select Auto Transfer.

Aspect

Select the Smart 3D aspect for which to define MicroStation symbology.

Level

Type the MicroStation level for the selected aspect. Valid levels are 1 to 63.

Color

Select a color for the selected aspect.

Weight

Type the MicroStation line weight for the selected aspect. Valid weights are 0 to 31.

Style

Select the MicroStation line style for the selected aspect.

Equipment

Number of Equipment per Model

Type the maximum number of equipment to put into a single MicroStation design file (.DGN).

Piping

Number of Pipelines per Model

Type the maximum number of pipelines to put into a single Alphanumeric Piping Language (APL) file.

Structure

Number of Structures per Model

Type the maximum number of structural objects (beams, columns, braces, and slabs) to put into a single CIS/2 file.

Number of Structural Equipment per Model

Type the maximum number of walls, ladders, and stairs to put into a single equipment MicroStation design file (.DGN).

Object Type

Select the Smart 3D aspect for which to define MicroStation symbology.

Level

When you export HVAC objects, the symbology defined for the Simple_Physical aspect is overwritten by the symbology defined for the following HVAC objects:

  • Duct parts - DUCT_SYMBOLOGY

  • Duct components - DUCT_COMPONENT_SYMBOLOGY

Electrical

Number of Cableways and Conduits per Model

Type the maximum number of cableways and conduit runs to put into a single MicroStation design file (.DGN).

Object Type

Select the Smart 3D aspect for which to define MicroStation symbology.

Level

Type the MicroStation level for the selected aspect. Valid levels are 1 to 63.

Color

Select a color for the selected aspect.

Weight

Type the MicroStation line weight for the selected aspect. Valid weights are 0 to 31.
