Database > New > Model creates a new model database and allows you to associate the appropriate catalog database with this model. This command is available only when the model's root is selected in the Project Management tree. During the model creation process, the reports and reports schema databases are also created.

The model database organizes all of the three-dimensional objects in the physical model. Although used interchangeably with model database, a model configuration is all three databases — catalog database, catalog schema, and model database — used together.

After you create your model, you can use Edit > Properties to view and change descriptive information about the model, including giving it a different name or modifying access permissions.

Before using this command to create your models, you must run the Database Wizard, a utility that resides outside Project Management, to create the site and site schema databases and to restore the catalog and catalog schema databases. Typically, you perform this action one time as part of the product installation and configuration process.

Using this Command with SQL

  • You must have administrator privileges on the site database to create a new model.

  • The procedure in this section is for MS SQL Server 2016.

  • The computer used to create the new model must have Project Management and Server Connectivity options installed.

  • Before creating a new model database, you must run the Database Wizard to create the site and site schema databases and restore the catalog and catalog schema databases. For more information, see Create a New Site.

  • When model generation completes, an icon for the Smart 3D Interference Detection Service also displays under the model node in the tree view of the Project Management task.

  • After you create the model, you can open the software on a client computer and begin designing the model.

  • During the model database creation process, you can specify the location for the physical database files when you create the model.

Using this Command with Oracle

  • You must have administrator privileges on the site database to create a new model.

  • For Oracle 12.2.0.1, run OraProvCfg.exe to load the Oracle.DataAccess.dll into the Global Assembly Cache (GAC).

  • If you are running Oracle on Linux, you must configure an Oracle wallet with administrator user privileges.

  • The computer used to create the new model must have Project Management and 3D Server Connectivity options installed.

  • Before creating a new model database, you must run the Database Wizard to create the site and site schema databases and restore the catalog and catalog schema databases. For more information, see Create a New Site.

  • When model generation completes, an icon for the Smart 3D Interference Detection Service also displays under the model node in the tree view of the Project Management task.

  • You can specify the location for the physical database files when the model is created.

  • After you create the model, you can open the software on a client computer and begin designing the model.

  • Although the reports and reports schema database are created automatically during the model generation process, they do not appear in the tree view of the model hierarchy. Reports database information can only be accessed via the Database tab of the Model Properties dialog box. To display this dialog box, right-click a model and select Properties on the shortcut menu.

  • Run the Oracle Role Creation Utility to define specific user roles for each schema or collection of schemas, if necessary. For more information, see Oracle Role Creation Utility.
