Converting AutoPlant Catalogs to Plant 3D

I've been looking around for an answer to a question abuot Converting AutoPlant "Catalogs" to Plant 3D.

When I convert my AutoPlant Catalog and opens the Plant 3D Spec Editor (2013) I can see that I have successfully converted some of the parts.
But there are alot missing, and if a open the *-log.txt file and reads the Errorreport it says
"Cannot find corresponding Plant 3D class" and the detailreport says for instance "Class mapping does not exist for AT_TRI_FERRULE_RED".

If I understand it right the class does not exist in Plant 3D, but if I try to change the class_name in AutoPlant Specification Generator to something that made the converting it does not show anyway..

Does anyone have a solution or a suggestion?

To me that means that the mappings of the conversion have not been finalised.

In the Spec Editor, go to File - Convert - Settings - AutoPlant Settings... and have a look at the class mappings in there. Look at the error file and see where there might be a missing mapping for the AutoPlant Class to the P3D Class.

Thank you omislav Golubovic!


That was very helpful. Now I have successfully converted almost every component in my spec.

But there are still some that I can't convert.


On those I got another error report: "Unable to set script & geometric data." and the detail report: "Missing script or parameter list for:END_COND_1=BW"


Does that mean that they missing a end connection? Or that the end connection BW does not exist.. Or something else?


Thanks in advance!
