Interoperability, eXchangers – Software

AutoCAD® (Download eXchanger for AutoCad) Import | Export

2D documents can be directly imported/exported to/from the design applications with inbuilt converters. For importing/exporting 3D you need to install AutoCAD ARX plugin by CADMATIC called “eXchanger for AutoCAD”. It is also possible to use AutoCAD as a bridge between CADMATIC and other 3D CAD for 3D import/export.

The eXchanger can be downloaded for free from our download page. You need to register first, before you are forwarded to the download page.

NOTE! CADMATIC eXchanger for AutoCAD is compatible with AutoCAD 2007 - 2017 software versions.

Aveva/PDMS® Import | Export

There are three possible levels of interoperability:

  • conversion of model for 3D viewer (eBrowser)
  • import 3D reference models via 3DD format
  • intelligent conversion including 3D model attributes and structure

It is possible to convert 3D RVM model to eBrowser format, including 3D objects and attributes, generated at the same time 3DD reference file can be imported to CADMATIC 3D Design applications as a reference model. Conversion services are possible for transferring 3D intelligent models from PDMS/PDS into CADMATIC intelligent models for further work with CADMATIC Design applications (including the entire parametric model and attribute values). These services provided by external subcontractors.

PIPEFAB® Export

The PIPEFAB Interface is an interface between CADMATIC Outfitting, pipe production systems PipeFAB of the company Tracto-Technik and is used to control CNC pipe bending machines. For each automatic generated isometric the interface creates a data file in XML format that includes all the required information to produce the pipes, like bending coordinates, pipe specifications, material information and various other relevant attributes. The interface can be customized to the client’s needs.

PipeStress® Export

Generates files from CADMATIC in format  *.pst to be imported into PipeStress for stress analysis purposes.

Siemens/NX® Import | Export

After integrating data from Siemens/NX via the JT standard, the combined intelligent 3D model contains all the information from the respective native software applications. JT is an ISO-standardized 3D data format used in industry for product visualization, collaboration, CAD data exchange, and in some also for long-term data retention. It can contain any combination of approximate (faceted) data, boundary representation surfaces, Product and Manufacturing Information, and Metadata (textual attributes)

Trimble/Tekla Structures® Import | Export

The native bi-directional interface between CADMATIC and Tekla Structures enables fluent information share with combining the structural steel model and project design model. Designers could work simultaneously in both programs and benefit from loading models from other discipline as native objects. The imported materials can be modified and exported for reuse with all the related information intact. As such, work can be started with a preliminary model in one software platform, after which it is enhanced with more detailed design in another.

Various BIM Import | Export

After integrating data from different software platforms via the IFC standard, the combined intelligent 3D model contains all the information from the respective native software applications. Imported materials are recognized not as 3D shapes as in traditional space holders, but as real objects with all their related information, such as the materials and standards used, mass density attributes etc. The imported materials can be modified and exported for reuse with all the related information intact. As such, work can be started with a preliminary model in one software platform, after which it is enhanced with more detailed design in another. Current format supported: IFC2x3
