Upgrading 2013 to 2014

606 Views, 7 Replies

Is there a document that walks you through the upgrade path?  I'm wondering what happens to all the changes that we made so that P3D conformed to my company standards.  For example, custom ortho annotations, all the modifications to the iso blocks.

 

Thanks.

All your settings that you have listed are project settings. Therefore upon upgrading to 2014, there is no need to do anything else. You must however, open your project in 2014 to migrate it.

Thanks for the reply.

 

What about customizations of blocks in template files like IsoSymbolStyles.dwg and the like?  How do they upgrade?

 

Regards,

It also upgrades upon migration. All standard Plant3D files in your project will upgrade to what they are meant to be. This includes the dwg files that contain blocks and settings.

I add a great amount of new parts in the P3D2013 catalogs and created many spec.'s.

Can I still use these catalog items and the pipespec.'s in P3D2014? What steps should I take to lett it work proper in 2014.

 

I think that P3D2014 has new catalog with changes, how can I merge new P3D2014 catalog items with my added P3D2013 catalog items?

 

We install next week P3D2014 and converting all  the existing projects. Will everything in the project be working.

(we don't work local on C:\, but on a shared folder accessible for all users)

 

Further there is a leack of information about the changes in P3D2014, I can only find something about Ortho, Vault and P&ID off page connectors (there should be more???)
