Create a converter for Object Data, Property Sets, Xdata and Xrecord to each oth

Create a converter for Object Data, Property Sets, Xdata and Xrecord to each oth

In Map, Civil, Architecture, MEP, in the base AutoCAD, various methods of storing descriptive data about objects are used - Object Data, Property Sets, Xdata and Xrecord.


A converter into each other for this data could create a “common language” for exchanging descriptive data for all AutoCAD applications. And it will allow to transfer descriptive data to other Autodesk applications (Navisworks, Inventor, etc.).

An alternative option is to create an analogue of Property Sets and Object Data in the base AutoCAD, i.e. a set of user tools sufficient to define, populate and edit descriptive data. For example, based on Xrecord. It would truly be a “common language" for all AutoCAD variants.
But conversion to Property Sets and Object Data and from Xdata will still be needed.

 

The idea of ​​a converter for descriptive data (Property Sets, Object Data, etc.) was partially already -https://forums.autodesk.com/t5/civil-3d-ideas/add-object-data-table-attributes-to-property-set-data/...
On the forum, the topic of transferring descriptive data to and from Civil has been raised for a long time and constantly - this shows a search on the forum for "Object Data", "Property Sets", etc.
