What types of files does FabTrol read in (import) besides KISS?
You can do a Save As on the SW BOM into a number of different formats. Can you convert to an in between format, then import that tweener format into FabTrol?
The data needs to be re-organized into a format fabtrol can read. We were saving our BOM's to .txt files and then one of our engineers was converting it using a personal VB program he created. He is no longer here, and I am looking for a utility that another SW user might have had success with.
I would be curious to find out if you have had any success with converting the SW BOM into a KISS file. Were you able to come up with a solution and if so, what was that Solution.
FabSuite is a fabrication management software package that can import information from many different formats.
If bill of material information can be exported to a delimited file format (tab, comma, etc.) then it is very easy to get that into FabSuite. Usually that type of export will have the description of each field as the first line of data. FabSuite has a flexible import that will read those descriptions and bring the information into the appropriate FabSuite field.

I'm trying to do the same thing (SW bom into a kiss file for Fabtrol).
Did you find a solution?
Has anyone found a solution for this? What about using the AutoCAD to KISS converter? Can you save from SW to AutoCAD and then to KISS?
