Tricad Service is partner of UNITEC offering Plant Integration using the example of AVEVA PDMS. With UNITEC we make data transfer in AVEVA PDMS possible

With UNITEC we make data transfer in AVEVA PDMS possible

Data Transfer from and to AutoCAD Plant

The customer of an engineering office requests the data transfer in AVEVA PDMS. Problem: The engineering office is using AutoCAD and cannot offer the design data in AVEVA PDMS. However, the service is at an AutoCAD and thus can't provide the required format. A transfer of the planning data in a conventional format such as Microstation DGN is not in question, since important geometries then are only available as a wireframe without full shading and can not be used for a collision check or drawing creation.

Data Transfer from MCAD

In general UNITEC offers a data transfer in AVEVA Plant (PDMS) on
basis of 3D primitives and faces. When there is no BREP model available, the conversion can take place on basis of tessellated geometry. This has the disadvantage that the model is very cumbersome and that the drawing derivation contains too many lines. As a further option AVEVA offers the STEP-referencing which enables a more rapid visualization of the model with the drawback that user defined measurement points or geometry changes (shift, delete) are not possible.

We suggest the combination of both technologies for an optimal solution.

Benefits of our conversion solution

Instead of an incalculable risk through the purchase of new software and the know-how transfer to another system, the customer uses the intelligent interface of UNITEC for AVEVA PDMS. This allows our customers to continue working in their well known system. After the design work is finished the resulting data can be transferred to the desired target system. With our online conversion service we offer interesting conditions in a software as a service approach. We look forward to your inquiry.
