|This task shows you how to create or modify setup data that is needed to use your migrated V4 models.|
|Data that you migrate
from V4 into V5 will usually be stored in directories that are separate
from the directories in which V5 generated data is stored. Sample
directories are included with this application for storing migrated data.
The default location is: ...\intel_a\startup\EquipmentandSystems\MigrationDirectory\XXX
where XXX is a discipline like Tubing or HVAC.
You need to create the following setup data in the directory that you use to store your resources, and which is referenced in the project resource management file. If you continue to use the sample directories the changes should be made there, if you choose to create a new location, that is where the setup data should be added.
In the instructions below it is assumed that you have created a new location. If you continue to use the sample directories then you should adjust the instructions accordingly.
You will need a set of discrete value text files as a default set of possible values for HVAC attributes. You can copy these from the sample migrated HVAC discipline (intel_a\startup\EquipmentAndSystems\MigrationDirectory\DiscreteValues) into your own \DiscreteValues directory. You can throw away what you don't want, and edit what you want so you are satisfied with your set of text files.
Also, if you had user-defined attributes defined in your V4 Project Registration Model containing a discrete list of values, then you will need to create a discrete values text file in your \DiscreteValues directory containing the name of your mapped V5 attribute name and the values you want available in V5 for your user-defined attribute.
The sample HVAC discipline contains a directory called DesignRules. The sample migrated HVAC discipline also references the HVAC Design Rules. If you want to have your own design rules, then copy the design rules resources into your own \HVAC\DesignRules directory. Edit the contents of the text files as desired. Bring up the application and open each CATProduct document and link it (via Properties) to the correct text document - your text document in its new location. You link it by editing the properties (File Path) of the entries (e.g., Compatibility) under Relations. Then save each CATProduct document. When you are satisfied you have all of the design rule data you want, you are ready to edit the design rules catalog. Rename the design rules catalog you copied, as desired. Bring up the application again and edit your design rules catalog as needed. Take out previous entries ("Remove description") and add your own entries. Refer to the section Standards and Design Rules for more information.
Standards and Specifications
The sample migrated HVAC discipline contains all migrated standard and specification data from the V4 Ductwork Design product. You may borrow these resources and copy them into your own \HVAC directory, or use them as a guide as you make your own files. If you copy existing files, you may want to rename the standard and specification directories and files and edit the text files to put in your own names and data. Rename the CATProduct documents as desired. Do this for each of your standards and specifications. Bring up the application and open each CATProduct document and link it to the correct text document - your own text document. You link it by editing the properties (File Path) of the entries (e.g., HVACDuctFunc) under Relations. Then save each CATProduct document. Borrow additional standard and specification resources as desired from the sample HVAC disciplines, and rename and edit them as desired. When you are satisfied you have the entire standard and specification data you want, you are ready to edit the standards catalog and the specifications catalogs. Rename the catalogs you copied, as desired. Bring up the application again and edit your catalogs as needed. Take out previous entries ("Remove description") and add your own entries. In some cases, you will need to refer to your V4 data for some information. Refer to Standards and Design Rules for more information.
The sample migrated HVAC discipline contains V5 HVAC part replicas of V4 ductwork catalog parts and a V5 parts catalog referencing these parts. You can borrow this entire catalog and its parts. You can also recreate your own V4 parts in V5 and add them to the catalog. For fixed-size, non-parametric V4 parts, you can simply copy/paste the geometry to your V5 HVAC part.
V4 did not contain a pre-defined set of duct lines. However, as you migrate ductwork models, V4 duct lines are migrated to V5 HVAC Lines and added to the V5 HVAC Lines catalog. You may wish to copy the HVAC Lines catalog and lines from the sample HVAC catalog, or start your own HVAC Lines catalog. You should put the catalog into your \HVAC\SampleData\HVACLines directory. See Managing HVAC Lines for more information.
