  1. Use the PDS Model Data Exporter to create an import XML file. For more information, see PDS Model Data Exporter.

  2. Select File > Import > Equipment.

    The Import Equipment Data dialog box appears.

  3. Click the button next to the XML file box to select the XML file to use for import.

  4. Click the button next to the Map file box to select the XLS map workbook to use for import. For more information about this workbook, see Equipment Translation Map in the Smart 3D Plant Design System (PDS) User's Guide.

  5. Click OK to import the equipment data as specified. If problems occur, check the import log file created in the same location as the input XML file.

  6. Check the To Do List for items that require attention after importing.

    If there is an item in the XML file that has the model system set to blank or Undefined, the Import Equipment command creates a generic system under the root with the naming convention xxxxxxImport-Date-Time. For example, the name might be EquipmentImport-6-27-2005 09:09:57AM. All objects with the blank or Undefined parent system import to this new system. After import, you can move the objects to your own System hierarchies.

The input XML file is validated against the defined equipment import schema to make sure the file is valid for import.
