Exports or updates a hierarchy for Smart 3D systems to the hierarchy mapping file.

For example, if you want to export Equipment, this command finds the object ID for each system that contains equipment objects, finds those equipment objects, and exports or updates that hierarchy to the mapping file.

  • A sheet named EquipmentHierarchy in the mapping file is updated with the hierarchy of the Smart 3D systems for the equipment discipline.

  • In the same way, worksheets for each discipline are updated at the time of hierarchy export. The PipingHierarchy, RaceWaysHierarchy, StructureHierarchy, and HVACHierarchy sheets are updated for their respective disciplines.

  • For piping, the pipeline systems, the OID and number of pipe runs under that system are exported to the hierarchy mapping file.

Discipline

Specifies the discipline (such as piping or equipment) for which to export the hierarchy. You can select a discipline from the list.

Hierarchy Mapping File

Specifies the mapping file to use in the export process. The mapping file is a Microsoft Excel workbook that is used to extract or update Smart 3D hierarchy information. Templates of hierarchy mapping sheets are delivered with the mapping file. This file is delivered by default to the [Product Folder]\SharedContent\Data\Translators\S3DPDSExport folder. You can copy these sheets to another workbook to create your own hierarchy mapping file.

Log file

Specifies the location and file name for logging process information. Click View Log to view the log file.

Extract/Update Hierarchy Mapping

Extracts or updates the hierarchy as specified.

Generate PDS Project Configuration File

FWP Project Number

Specifies the sub project number for FrameWorks Plus projects. This setting is only used If Discipline is set to Structural.

PDS Model Directory

Specifies the model folder. You can type the network path, or navigate to it. This information is updated in the hierarchy mapping file and used when you export the model.

PDS Project Configuration File

Specifies the location and file name of the ASCII file. This file is used in PDS when creating areas and models with Create Model Data Using ASCII File. For more information, see Configure the PDS Export Initialization File.

Log file

Specifies the location and file name for logging process information. Click View Log to view the log file.

Generate PDS Project Configuration File

Generates an ASCII file as specified, and updates the hierarchy mapping file with the PDS model directory information.
