Smart 3D uses the Intergraph Batch Services ( or later) application to help you run large, time-consuming operations on a separate computer or during off hours, leaving your workstations available for other tasks. Due to the intensive nature of batch operations, using one or more computers dedicated as batch computers is recommended.

You can install both batch processing methods on any computer on which the Smart 3D client software has been installed. You must also install the Project Management and Server Connectivity features on your batch computers. Intergraph Batch Services is delivered on separate media from Smart 3D and does not require a serial number.

The batch computer supports the following processes:

  • Updating drawings in the Drawings task

  • Detailing and un-detailing parts in the Structural Detailing task

  • Generating manufacturing parts and XML output files in the Structural Manufacturing task

  • Updating the Manufacturing Services Manager in the Structural Manufacturing task

  • Importing and exporting Structure objects

  • Importing Tribon XML files

  • Finding common parts

  • Generating planning joints

  • Running block assignments

  • Printing, publishing, and refreshing drawings

  • Updating Reference 3D models

  • Backing up Smart 3D databases

  • Restoring Smart 3D databases

  • Checking database integrity
