As many of us know, changing from one software solution to another is not an easy task. In most cases, companies must put applications through a rigorous process to set them up to meet company standards. When changing from one program to another, it is ideal to maintain the largest amount of customized data possible. This class covers converting your current Bentley® AutoPLANT, Intergraph® CADWorx®, or CSV-formatted specs and catalogs into AutoCAD Plant 3D specs and catalogs. We go through the process for conversions as well as take an in-depth look into the mapping and the setup of the mapping inside of the AutoCAD Plant 3D Spec Editor.
- Describe the mapping process behind the conversion of the specs and catalogs
- Customize the current mapping in the AutoCAD Plant 3D Spec Editor
- Successfully convert specs and catalogs from AutoPLANT, CADWorx, or CSV-formatted files
- Explain the information provided by the spec conversion report
I am a plant solutions consultant for an Autodesk reseller based in South Africa. I successfully completed the Drawing Office Principles Basic & Advanced courses in 2007/2008. As I had a working knowledge of AutoCAD I began presenting courses on the software as well as offering support while obtaining this qualification. Over time the courses I am certified to present have increased. I now present the beginner, intermediate, advanced and update courses for AutoCAD, AutoCAD P&ID, AutoCAD Plant 3D and Inventor. I also support, implement and customize all of the previously mentioned products. My course reviews have always received a rating of 85% and above and as mentioned previously I have trained hundreds of people. I participated in the role of "Ask the expert" for the month of May 2013 for Autodesk's AutoCAD Plant Exchange. I have gained extensive knowledge in AutoCAD Plant 3D and AutoCAD P&ID through both the implementation and full customization of these two solutions.
