Is there any support available for microstation files and smartplant 3d files, even with an add-in, for EPDM?
That's something the VAR could answer, but I would think it could since it is a Product Data Manager software.
Hi Jeff, any type of file can be "managed" to a degree in EPDM, as long as you create data cards to handle the particular file extensions, specific categories or workflows etc.
In the particular case of Microstation, the dgn files can be stored in the vault, but the data cards will not be able to read any properties stored within the files themselves. I believe there is a Microstation connector you can purchase from D2M3 which then allows for basically the same level of integration as SolidWorks and Autocad files (windows explorer preview, data card read/write, plugin within Microstation). See the attached PDF
As for smartplant, I am not aware of any connector or integration but again the files could be stored in the vault as is, allowing for check in/out, workflow revisioning etc.
Hope this helps.
I recently contacted D2M3 and they have discontinued the Microstation connector with no plans to develop another one. If you hear of another one drop me a line: jeff.Hamilton@baesystems.com
Hi Jeff, thank you for the update.
