Setting Up Attribute Classes for AutoCAD Attribute Exchange
For users to be able to work with attribute exchange in integrated AutoCAD, you first need to create an attribute class for AutoCAD attribute exchange, in ProjectWise Administrator. Later, you will create a matching attribute block in AutoCAD.
The process for setting up an AutoCAD attribute class in ProjectWise Administrator involves:
Creating a new attribute class for AutoCAD attribute exchange.
Adding attributes to the new attribute class (using the New Attribute Wizard)
Binding one or more ProjectWise properties to each attribute you add (using the New Attribute Wizard, or the Attribute Properties dialog).
(Optional) Defining the display format for the properties bound to each attribute (using the New Attribute Wizard, or the Attribute Properties dialog).
While it is possible to perform the following three procedures below in one long procedure using the New Attribute Wizard, for simplicity they are broken into three short procedures.
The type of property (numeric, date, or text) that you select to bind to the attribute determines the formatting available for that property. Use one of the following procedures to change the way your attribute values get displayed.
