Helios database information in Vectorworks


Recommended Posts

  • Vectorworks, Inc Employee

By using the FileMaker based Plant Database, you should be able to import almost any external data into the database, and then generate plant lists for use in VectorWorks.

The main thing you need to know is what format your data is in, where the various fields are and how they match up to the proper fields in the plant database. Check the

File > Import Record > File menu

command in the Plant Database to see the various formats supported.

If you need specific help in doing this, just drop a line.

We have successfully imported plant data into the VW plant database.

We are particularly interetested in the NPS data which the plant data base has editable fields for and for which we have now got data in. However, when it comes to using this data in Vectorworks from Get plant data there doesn't appear to be a field for the National Plant specification data to come under? Is there someway of putting these fields into vectorworks?
