Hi Ahmed,

 

Select 'File - Convert - CadWorx Spec' from the menu in the spec editor (see attached snapshot). A dialog box will open and you have to select your CADWorx spec file (*.spc), your standard library with referenced files, your datafile.tbl and the target folder for the converted specs.

 

Please, inform me if I could help you

 

Regards

Bernd

Hi Ahmed,

 

Thank you for clearing here the point. Yes, this is currently not possible. I will ask internally if there is already an update for the version 2014 here or if there are additionally plans for 2013.

 

Regards

Bernd

Hi Ahmed,

 

I've got now the answer of the development here. They were not aware of this change in the new CadWorx 13R2 release. I have logged now this issue to them and they will work for this topic here.

 

Regards

Bernd

Has Autodesk adressed this issue? It has been a year on this forum and no answer what's the solution?

Is anyone looking into this on the Plant 3D side. This is a big issue and Autodesk always touts their user groups and forums for support and this issue is a year old with no one from Autodesk having a response. This sounds a lot like Bentley....the reason we are leaving Bentley.

As you note, the best use of this forum is to leverage the experience of other users.  This isn't the best (or proper) location to log feature requests or get direct AutoDesk support.  Unless there is a *lot* of demand for this then it probably won't be added to the product while there are higher priorities.

 

If there is enough demand to make it worth their while a third-party solution might be an option.

I guess there is enough demand since the option to convert the files exist for previous versions of Cadworx.
