Migrating V4 Models to V5

This section discusses migration of V4 models to V5.

To explain the process briefly, you have to convert the classes and attributes in your V4 Project Registration Model to an XML file and ftp it to a V5 directory. You have to do the same with the classes and attributes in your V5 Feature Dictionary.

A tool compares these two XML files and another tool then imports the classes and attributes that do not exist in V5 and makes them available to you in V5.

You also have to copy standard and specifications data to V5 and edit it as needed.

Make sure the project resource management file is pointing to the correct location of all resources.

To learn how to customize line thickness, see documentation for Interactive Drafting in the section Advanced Tasks/Manage Standards. Once defined, line thickness is applied to elements as a property.

Create a directory structure if you plan to store your migrated data in a location other than the location in which the sample data is stored. You also need to create/modify setup data, which is explained in this section.
