Has anyone had any luck migrating the victaulic spec that was released on the plant exchange site for Plant 2012? I am trying to get it up in 2014 and although it says it migrates correctly it still wont open in 2014 and says that it still needs to be migrated. If someone has been successful with this it would be asesome if you could at least post the catalog, otherwise walk me through the steps of migrating it correctly.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Can you please send some snap shots of the errors that you see on when you open the migrated Victualic catalog?
Have you opened the right migrated catalog from the following location? It should be either "C:\AutoCAD Plant 3D 2014 Content\Migrated Content 3_0" or "C:\AutoCAD Plant 3D 2014 Content\Migrated Content 4_0"
let us know your findings in detail.
Thanks & Regards,
I'm having a similar issue with Vic-IPS spec in Plant3D 2014. I migrated the spec in the 2013 version and it worked perfectly. Now, I re-downloaded the Victaulic content pack into C:\AutoCAD Plant 3D 2014 Content and opened spec editor 2014. I migrated the specs and they appeared into C:\AutoCAD Plant 3D 2014 Content\Migrated Content 4_0. Then I copied them over to the spec sheet folder on the specific project I'm working on. When I select the spec in P3D 2014, it tells me I need to migrate the spec (which I already did). However, when my colleague selects it, the Vic tool pallete pops up. He gets an error about end connections not matching, however both the inserted elbow and pipe are GRV ends when looking under the properties.
Either add a new joint setting for victaulic grooved ends and remove pressure class as a setting, or you see the defaultconnectors file, that also has that same thing set or modify the default clamped joint and remove pressure class.
For your migration problems, all the specs that give errors, make sure everyone is offline --> Open each spec one by one in spec editor and hit save, even if unchanged. Make sure you see the pspc and pspx files in the spec folder. Once this is done next launch everyone should have no issues.
