I have moved a Plant 3D project to site .... It is a SQLite project and I have copied everthing over to the Site Server.
I can see all my models and orthos.
Models that have xrefs in them are all there and the path names have all been updated.
I have a problem that project settings and orthocreate do not seem to work, I assumed that it might be something to do with moving the project, but I have quickly set up a new test project from scratch and again orthocreate and project settings do not seem to work ?
Normally when in an ortho and you hit or type orthocreate you get the dialog box up to select which models to include.... I do not see this and it is hanging until I press escape.
I have been advised that I need to use PnPProjectMaintenance.exe - but to move or copy my project I need to change from SQLite to SQL Server .................. to which I have no idea how to do / or if it will benefit ?
If anyone could help esp an Autodesk Expert - I would be very greatful as sat in site a cabin with pressure mounting and no IT support.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Moving an SQLite project should not be a problem.
The things I would check are:
If the template is not available or is saved in modelspace the Ortho creation will stall.
Thanks for the reply.
The Ortho Template and drawing template files if that is what you mean is on my C: drive, I am back on site Moday so I will double check.
When you say saved in a layout, I must be loosing it, as I am not sure what you mean, can you explain ?
To try and sort out the problem I have copied and modified all the project xml files to state the projects new server position and was going to try this Monday, and also run PnPLocalDataCachePurger to see if that helped.
Just concerned why it should hang when I try and open project settings and ortho create, so if you can think of anything else Dan - I would appreciate it.
By Layout I mean saved in paperspace rather than modelspace.
I would not recommend editing the project.xml file manually. It should not be something that you need to do anyway. I often receive customer projects that I place on our server here and have no issues with paths.
It is possible that the project you have on site was not copied correctly.
Try copying the working version you have in the office to another location and see if that works.
