The EQPTranslationMap.xls workbook delivered in the [Product Folder]\Smart3D\3DRefData\SharedContent\Data\Translators\PDSS3DImport\ConfigurationFiles folder maps equipment XML file attribute tags to the correct Smart 3D properties.

The XMLEquipmentItem-SheetName-Map sheet is a lookup reference between an equipment item name in the input XML file and the corresponding sheet name in the EQPTranslationMap.xls workbook. For more information, see XML Equipment Item Sheet Name Map Sheet.

The DesignEQPPartClassMap sheet is a lookup reference between a design equipment part class attribute in the XML file and the corresponding Smart 3D equivalent part class attribute. If this sheet is missing or if design equipment's part class attribute in the XML file does not have a mapped entry in the sheet, then the part class attribute specified in the XML file is used as the Smart 3D part class for that designed equipment. An appropriate warning is given in the import log file that no mapping sheet or mapping entry was defined. For more information, see Design Equipment Part Class Map Sheet.

Other sheets represent shapes, nozzles and custom shapes, parametrics, and attribute map information sheets. These sheets serve as a map between the equipment items in the XML file and Smart 3D equipment items.

The ShapesAndNozzles sheet maps the XML file item name to the Smart 3D part class and part number for primitives (shapes and nozzles) and custom shapes. For more information, see Shapes and Nozzles Sheet.

The PartClass Sheets, similar to Template-Item-Sheet, serve a map for XML ItemName to S3D PartClass/ S3D PartNumber for Parametrics and Catalog Equipment.

Attribute Map Info Sheets, similar to Template-AttMap-Sheet, serve as a map for XML Item Attribute Name to S3D Attribute Name for Primitives> Nozzles > CustomShapes > Parametrics> Catalog Equipment.

To define a new part class item mapping, do the following:

  1. Copy the Template-Item-Sheet, and then name it after the Smart 3D item name.

  2. Fill in the details in the appropriate columns.

  3. Copy the Template-AttMap-Sheet, and then name it after the value in the Attribute Mapping Sheet cell.

  4. Add a new entry to the XMLEquipmentItem-SheetName-Map sheet.

  5. Specify the Equipment Item Name in the XML file and the corresponding sheet name created in step 1.

To define a new custom shape mapping, do the following:

  1. Add a new entry to the ShapesAndNozzles sheet.

  2. Specify the custom shape's part number used in the XML file in the Item Name in XML column, and then fill in the mapping details, such as S3D PartClass, S3D PartNumber, and Attribute Mapping Sheet.

  3. Copy the Template-AttMap-Sheet, and name the value in the Attribute Mapping Sheet cell.

  4. In the Attribute Mapping Sheet, define the mapping attribute for the custom shape's attributes.

Usually, the part class and part numbers for equipment components and catalog equipment are different. For example, E205Asm and E205_1_Asm are the catalog equipment part classes and part numbers, whereas E205_CVerCylEqpSkCompAsm and E205-Vertical Tank with Skirt (multi-stage)_Asm are the equipment component part classes and part numbers. Therefore, consider this fact when define the mapping sheets. Therefore, be careful when defining the mapping sheets.
